Cuddy runs tests on Max, and tells her that she's making a huge decision and should know that she could die doing this, and be certain that it's worth it. Max says that all she wants is to grow old with Hannah. They can lie in bed and compare their matching liver surgery scars. In Max's mind, things will work out perfectly.
Over in Hannah's area, Cameron is testing her for vascular abnormalities that would prevent them from giving her a transplant, and also testing for mushroom spores, at the same time. Hannah denies doing drugs, but Cameron doesn't believe her, figuring that people who lie to their girlfriends must also lie about everything ever. She shoves a tube down Hannah's throat, and asks her whether she cares about all the painful tests Max is going through on Hannah's behalf without knowing the truth. It's not like Hannah can answer her with that tube in her mouth. This is like when your dentist asks your questions when she's in the middle of cleaning your teeth. I hate that. At least my dentist isn't yelling at me for having questionable morals, though. She does yell at me for not flossing enough sometimes, though. And, as painful as those tests Cameron is doing on Hannah are, it's probably even more painful for her to hear one of Cameron's Trademark Morality Lectures. I know it is for me. I'd rather listen to House imply that black men are basketball players with huge penises all day than this. Cameron says that if Hannah really loved Max, she wouldn't let her risk her life blindly. "You'd really tell?" Hannah asks. "Yeah!" Cameron says without hesitation, which is easy for her to say since her liver is working just fine. "You'd die?" Hannah asks. Cameron doesn't answer this time.
Wilson makes his obligatory appearance to lecture House on the whole Foreman/Cameron article fiasco. Can't there just be one person on this show who doesn't have anything to say about this? Ugh. Wilson actually read both Foreman's and Cameron's articles, and says that while Foreman's was more analytical, Cameron's focused on the ethical dilemma of informed consent. NO, REALLY? I can't believe that Cameron would be at all concerned with something like that! Wilson says that House shouldn't allow backstabbing stuff like this in his department, because it will lead to sabotage, which will compromise patient care, while possibly making for an even more entertaining show. Sabotage is usually extremely fun to watch. House says he's hoping that Cameron learned something from all of this, which she obviously hasn't, since the girl is constantly learning about the blackness of other people's hearts, only to unlearn it before the next episode starts.
