Bob is in surgery! It's not a clot. The lymph nodes are inflamed. Time for a biopsy. This seems like a situation where there's gonna be some beeping. And there it is! "His sclera's jaundiced. I think it's his liver."
Adams says it's not Lemierre's Syndrome after all. Park suggests alcoholic withdrawal. House says that doesn't cover the lymph nodes. He wants to hit him with broad-spectrum antibiotics. Adams says that'll destroy what's left of his liver, so Chase proposes a liver transplant, then the antibiotics. House says that the old team is ahead of the new team. This whole time he's been doing something weird with the electronics in the wall. I don't think he's actually stealing cable, though. Why would he steal it? He works there!
Mrs. Bob is sad that Bob could die while waiting for a new liver. But a partial liver transplant is possible, which could be done with a living donor. Mrs. Bob volunteers. But she might not be a match. They'll need to cast a wide net! Bob is beloved, so there are hundreds of possible volunteers. And Bob wants to confess his misdeeds to every one of them first. I guess Small Town, USA is pretty close.
The lobby is full of people. They applaud Bob as he's wheeled out. He announces that he cheated on Denise. She immediately and publicly forgives him. But there's more! Bob tells Larry that he didn't need that new transmission. And Joe didn't need that engine rebuild. "In fact, I cheated most of you here tonight." He's been ripping them all off for years. He also took $10,000 from a scholarship fund and lost it gambling. Some people leave, which means they'll miss any other revelations. Bob says, "I'm sorry. I'm not the man you thought I was." Park: "That didn't go well." Good one, Park. You're a real diagnostic machine today.
Chase reports that there were only two potential donors left, and they were both negative. The four of them are eating Chinese food while House drinks a martini from his new in-office bar and talks about Adams's breasts. He tells Adams that every man she's ever met has thought about having sex with her. This is to shock her into believing that everybody lies. Anyway, it's time to get "reckless and extreme": they're going to cut out the damaged part of the liver and move forward. Whee!
