And speaking of people who feel guilty about screwing other people over, no matter how much those other people deserved it, the Cottages sans Foreman are in Cuddy's office, admitting that they lied about their paychecks to make Foreman feel inadequate, thus causing him to quit PPTH. Cuddy remarks that House appears to be rubbing off on his young protégés in more ways than one. Chase asks her to give Foreman just a little raise so he'll stay at PPTH, but Cuddy quite rightly points out that she won't give one employee a raise just because three other employees played a trick on him. Hadley says they figured she'd say that, so they decided to offer part of their own salaries to cover Foreman's raise, although Taub obviously isn't thrilled with how this has turned out for him. "Foreman is a good team leader. He deserves it," Chase says. I guess he's right. After all, Chase killed a patient on purpose while Foreman only did it by accident. Cuddy accepts their offer before informing them that Foreman never came to her about quitting PPTH. And she had nothing better to do today than play along, apparently. Although she was obviously pressed for time leaving for the hospital in the morning, seeing as she seems to have forgotten to wear a shirt underneath her cleavage-baring cardigan.
The Cottages emerge from Cuddy's office to find Foreman waiting for them, very pleased with himself. Yes, he's seen enough episodes of I Love Lucy and Three's Company and worked for House long enough to have played the players. And he got a raise out of the deal, too. Meanwhile, I don't think anyone has checked in on Mickey in hours.
3B stops by her new gay best friend's office and asks if he's free for coffee. He says it's a bad time, but she points out that he's the one who invited her out, and this is the only time she can make it. I don't know why, seeing as how she clearly has no life whatsoever. House invites her into his office and decides to give up on his dream of having sex with her, either because he realizes that Wilson will go to any length to make sure that doesn't happen or because he's just not interested in 3B anymore because she's annoying and kind of clingy, showing up at the workplace of the guy she just met. He says he isn't gay after all, and only told 3B he was to screw with Wilson, who liked her. And then he kept things going because "I want to touch your boobs." Ah, yes, that's very heterosexual of him. He says the fact that he listened to Evita, which he apparently knows well enough to hate, not once but twice shows just how heterosexual he really is. 3B gets ready to storm off angrily, but House calls her back to endorse Wilson, saying he's a "good guy" and he likes her. But he's only saying that so 3B will think that despite his many faults, House is a good friend and then sleep with him, which makes her angry enough to say she just might date Wilson after all to get revenge on House. I think she should just move. It's obvious that her new neighbors are sociopaths. House lists off all the reasons why Wilson wouldn't be a good boyfriend: three divorces and he sleeps with terminal cancer patients. "Sure, he looks like a boy scout -- " House says, cutting himself off because he's having his epiphany moment. He leaves 3B in his office wondering what the hell just happened.
