Taub is a doctor at a swanky plastic surgery office, and yet he has to call in the patients from the waiting room himself? That's lame. He calls for a "Mr. Takiyama," who ends up being House, who makes a crack about Asian blepharoplasty before updating Taub on Hank's condition. Taub tries to ignore him and see a real patient, only to find the next name on the list is "Mr. Hitler." Okay, what moron receptionist took that appointment? I mean, come on. I can't tell if House's fellow waiting room patients are annoyed or find the diversion from their lives of nosejobs and lovehandles humorous. Taub finally asks for a patient to volunteer to go next. Unfortunately, a large man stands and is told that he is trying to get "two decades' worth of corn chips Hoovered out of his neck." So whoever wrote this episode is a man and English, I guess? Because I'm pretty sure Americans don't use Hoover as a verb. Or perhaps it's an American history buff who's saying that the patient wants to have two decades' worth of corn chips tragically mishandle the worst financial crisis in American history out of his neck? House says that Taub may be "content" with his current home and work life, but sooner or later he's going to realize that he doesn't like content and start investing money in stock scams while he cheats on his wife just like he did the last time he was content. Taub reminds House that he shut the door in his face last time and that the only job he's interested in are nose jobs. And that gives him an idea in spite of himself. He tells House to try draining Hank's sinuses -- if they're infected and clogged enough, then there could be a pocket of bacteria in there that the antibiotics couldn't get to. Um, I think they'd know if Hank's sinuses were that clogged. Because, you know, he'd have the worst headache ever. And probably a sinus infection. But this satisfies House and he leaves Taub, promising to come back for more tomorrow.
