Back from break, House asks for a diagnosis on windpipe issues and disappearing leg muscle. Foreman suggests Kumar's parents, since House blamed them for everything else. House admits that he was wrong about the Kumars' whiteness being to blame for their son's suicide, as Kumar would have done more to get back in touch with his ethnic heritage before offing himself. He doesn't get right on the phone to tell the Kumars this, though, so they're probably still sitting at home blaming themselves. House did learn one lesson, though, as he claims he was polite to all of Kumar's friends when he called them looking for answers, even though none of them had any to give. Do you think he called Cole, or did that friendship end when Cole tried to screw Kumar over? Which couldn't have done much for Kumar's love of life, by the way. Taub would rather focus his energies on someone who's still alive, making him the only person on the show or in the viewing audience who cares about Yvette. He suggests MS, and House tells Hadley and Foreman to run an MRI (of DOOOM!!) to confirm it while Taub goes off and does a secret echocardiogram on Meat to see if his heart is actually improving.
Meanwhile, House has a new theory on what was wrong with Kumar: he was a sexual deviant, based on his criminal background that shows he was once arrested for indecent exposure. He lectures Cuddy for allowing him to hire someone with obvious mental problems, and she says Kumar's arrest was following a college streaking incident. Then she gets all sympathetic and puts an hand on House's arm and says it's okay to be upset, especially since Kumar was so similar to House. House says he wasn't that similar, since "if he felt like me, he'd have known that living in misery sucks marginally less than dying in it." Yeah. Until it doesn't.
