I figured that meant sticking Wendy in some kind of torture device that could kill her but may also tell them what she doesn't have, but this time it just means sending Chase and Hadley to Tony's house to snoop around. They discover that he's an avid hunter, and his home is full of hunting weapons and taxidermied trophies. They don't have to stay long, though, as Foreman calls from Wendy's apartment, where he and Taub just found a box full of empty liquor bottles and new diagnosis: alcohol withdrawals.
Wendy denies being an alcoholic to her doctors, who have a hard time believing her since she claimed on her medical history that she doesn't drink and her home was full of evidence to the contrary. Wendy's excuse is that she collects bottles for a friend who uses them in art projects and apparently can't get her own damn bottles. This all sounds ridiculous to me and her doctors, but Hadley points out in the hallway that while she understands why Wendy would lie about being an alcoholic to keep her security clearance at her job, she finds it odd that the only bottles they found in her home were empty. Foreman agrees that Wendy may well be telling them the truth, but orders them to start her on Valium to treat alcohol withdrawals anyway. "It's the best we've got right now," he says.
Meanwhile, House managed to convince Foley to come to PPTH for an EKG to test his theory. Foley's EKG came back normal, so Foley rushes out, angry that his time was wasted. House has trouble keeping up with him and finally has to shout after him to stop and admit that his leg hurts and he has to sit down. Foley takes enough pity on House to stop and listen to him. House says he is convinced that there's something medically wrong with Foley that's affecting his boxing ability. House can figure out what it is, treat it, and Foley "won't have to suck" anymore, which seems like something that Foley would be interested in. Instead, Foley tells House to fix his own problems and leave Foley out of it.
Meanwhile, Wendy is suffering from agonizing abdominal pain. Foreman says it could be consistent with their stretch of an alcoholism diagnosis, since alcoholics get pancreatitis fairly easily. Hadley suddenly decides that the pain is due to stress, both work and personal life-related, and she has gone back to disapproving of what Wendy does for a living again. "Her guilt is killing her," Hadley believes, even though Wendy clearly doesn't feel guilty about her job or her boyfriends. Chase, Foreman, and Hadley fight over diagnoses until Taub interrupts them to say he paged House for help because they clearly can't figure this out without him. Unfortunately, they'll have to, since House isn't answering his pages. Foreman gets up and leaves.
