Foreman sneaks home some time after 8 o'clock and finds Taub messing around with a woman on Foreman's couch. Taub really is a crappy roommate, isn't he? I thought I was bad for eating my roommate's entire box of Lucky Charms one night, but at least I bought him a new box and never had sex on any of his furniture. Taub's lady friend sits up and says hello to Foreman. It's his ex(?)-wife, a.k.a. the woman with the worst self-esteem in the world. She's hooking up with the guy who cheated on her all the time and then asked her for a divorce. I think she has more mental problems than Nina.
Hadley and House are apparently sharing a motel room, because it's not like doctors earn enough money to pay for two motel rooms or anything. Actually, maybe they don't -- Hadley's been in jail for six months and House spent all his money on hookers a few weeks back. Hadley brings House a bunch of pies to celebrate her bright idea of replacing the gun's bad combustion valve with a disk that will somehow increase the distance they'll be able to launch their potato. They'll be using the pie tins as the disks. I know so little about what's going on with this spud gun that I have been forced to look it up on Wikipedia. And now I know way too much about this stuff and that Hadley is trying to create a Burst Disk Valve for a more powerful hybrid spud gun instead of the combustion guns that the competition uses.
House and Hadley dig into their pies/illegal spud gun supplies, but then House has to ruin things by asking Hadley who she killed and how. To entice her to tell him, he offers to pull some strings for her so her license will be reinstated sooner and give her a job as his assistant in the meantime. First of all, I'm pretty sure House doesn't have any strings to pull, since anyone who's anyone in the medical field and on medical licensing boards probably knows and hates him. Second of all, does he think Cuddy's going to go hiring yet another person for his department? Especially since they seem to be doing just fine solving cases with the four fellows? Actually, she probably will, because Cuddy sucks and has no backbone. Hadley considers House's offer, then tells House that his guess about the overdose was right after all. House claims to believe her, but I don't. But I also don't really care why Hadley went to jail, nor do I understand why the people behind the scenes of this show are so determined to have Olivia Wilde on it that they'll give her almost the entire season off to film movies. Not only do they not have their precious Olivia Wilde for seventeen episodes, but they also have to come up with a reason for her character's absence. And then she'll probably leave the show for a full-time movie career anyway.
