Ramon says that if he accepts the stem cell treatment then God will be sure to throw a hissy fit and give his daughter cancer again. House says Ramon already went back on his word by not following Jesus's crucifixion to the letter. He put nails in his palms instead of his wrists and took ibuprofen to dull the pain. Compared to what Jesus went through, House says, Ramon's ordeal was nothing more than a "bad manicure." Ramon says it's not about copying Jesus but about showing him his faith or whatever. If he has to die in order to uphold that so his daughter may live, he will. How did Ramon explain that divorce thing to God, by the way? Because I'm pretty sure he's not a fan of it. House thinks Ramon is just afraid that their cure will prove that his faith is misplaced and he'll have to live the rest of his life miserable like all the other atheists. He tells Martha and Ramon that they're both idiots for sticking to their convictions no matter what the consequences and leaves the room. Martha follows, her lab coat not enough to cover up yet another heinous wardrobe choice (seriously, does she have to wear ties all the time?), and suggests that they bring Ramon's daughter in to talk some sense into him. House has to admit that that's a good idea.
Ramon's daughter begs her father to take the medicine. Ramon sees Martha watching in the doorway and gives her a big angry smile. He tells his daughter that God wouldn't want him to take a treatment that violates his laws. The daughter thinks God would rather that Ramon didn't die. "He doesn't want anyone dying. He's all about love!" she says. Meanwhile, her loving God gave her stage four brain cancer and only took it away when her father agreed to crucify himself every year, so ... I don't get the logic. She continues that she knows what it's like to almost die and she can't lose her weirdo father who is absolutely no fun. She begs him again to go with the stem cells, which, by the way, we have no guarantee will even work. Ramon still refuses. The daughter says she hates God now. This gives us Ramon's biggest smile yet.
