Bob tells Chase he can't live like this. Chase thinks he should keep lying to his wife, but Adams doesn't. He's in a room where the ceiling tiles blink quickly, testing for photic epilepsy. Couldn't they just use that hand-held adjustable strobe light that House had? It seemed ideal for this sort of thing.
Chase and Adams return to the office, where something noisy and construction-based is happening behind a wall. House tells them that Park wasn't necessarily wrong; she was just wrong not to test for epilepsy first. Chase and Adams go off to run the latest test, and Taub and Park go to the motel where the attack hit. Hosue gives them a few quarters for the massage bed. Swanky!
At the motel, Park explains to a nearby prostitute that Taub couldn't get a babysitter, which is why he brought the babies. Then she explains to Taub that everyone clearly thinks she's a prostitute herself, since she's here with a man twice her age. "How old do you think I am?" he asks. I guess that would be funny if I didn't also think he was twice her age. For what it's worth, Peter Jacobson is 46 and Charlyne Yi is 25. So he's not quite twice her age, but it's pretty close.
Chase and Adams look at monitors while Bob and Mrs. Bob sleep in the next room. Chase: "So who cheated on you?" Ah, he's trying to be like House and "read" people. She parries by pointing out that Chase quit medicine when House got arrested. This distracts him long enough for a machine to beep. But Chase says it's just that one of the sensors has come loose. When she's fixing it, she sees that Bob's got a giant neck goiter! And she announces the latest diagnosis, which, um, I can't come close to spelling. Time to figure out how to operate the Tivo's closed captioning. Okay, hang on... it's "not a pheochromocytoma." So there!
House brushes his teeth while his team makes their reports and wonders where the construction crew is. Apparently House has them working nights. Park suggests meningitis. Taub rushes in, having stashed his kids at a daycare across town. Chase rejects meningitis because Bob's neck isn't stiff. Park reports all the stuff from the motel bed. It includes animal poop! House accurately guesses one of the bacteria that was found and proposes Lemierre's Syndrome. So they need to cut him open and remove a clot. Everyone leaves and House grabs Taub's coffee cup and puts it in a plastic evidence bag. But Taub returns and takes it back.
Bob says he has to tell his wife the truth about Miss Cedarville. But the team in the room is Park and Taub, and they don't care. It's Chase and Adams that are into arguing abotu the moral dimension of this case. Park and Taub just want to get on with the medical stuff. Bob won't agree to anything until he tells his wife. His kids come in and are cute until he gets rid of them. Park and Taub go out into the hall to pretend to watch the kids.
