Cuddy says this is all silly because even if House does manage to catch her in a lie, it's not going to make her suddenly love lies and forgive House for his. And since when, in the seven years we've known Cuddy, has she been such a stickler for the truth? She's not Martha and she knows House lies to her and he's been doing it as her employee for YEARS. It doesn't make any sense that she has a problem with it now except to manufacture this stupid plot and create tension in their relationship that it doesn't even need.
Taub, Chase, and Martha hang out in the MRI booth while Ramon is being scanned or murdered or whatever it is the MRI (OF DOOOM!!) does. Chase is enjoying hearing about Taub's marital woes, especially the new twist of Rachel making a male friend at the support group she has to go to because of Taub. Chase says a cheating spouse support group is "the perfect place to hit on a vulnerable woman" and is no doubt thinking right now of how early he can get out of work to do just that. Martha, on the other hand, is actually paying attention and notes a bunch of lesions in Ramon's brain. Chase says they look like MS, and Ramon's malnutrition must have hid those symptoms because he had no immune system for the disease to attack. Now that he's being fed, the MS is surfacing. As for the barfing blood and everything that originally brought Ramon to PPTH, I guess that's MS too? Or malnutrition? Or he really does have the horse disease?
Ramon grins that he's still feeling terrible. House notes that his friends aren't visiting him. Ramon says he asked them to pray for him. And they can't do that while visiting him? Also, they didn't notice he wasn't eating food anymore and was losing a lot of weight? Ramon's friends suck. House explains that Ramon's brain is being affected by the MS, which could be the reason why he thought it was a good idea to make that deal with God and crucify himself annually in the first place. House is hoping that with treatment, Ramon's faith will subside. Ramon is certain it won't. As it happens, they're not going to find out because Ramon is getting worse despite the medicine. Now he can't move his arm. "Your friends are not praying hard enough," House concludes.
