Wilson stops by House's office, where House is pretending to nap in his chair. Sensing the nearness of Wilson without even opening his eyes, House lets out a "go away." Wilson ignores him and asks if he talked to Cuddy last night. "She's fine," House says, and Wilson is surprised that House spoke to Cuddy at all. I guess he was asking House expecting him to say no so that Wilson could then lecture House about being an uncaring human being. Now his lecturing plans are foiled! "I kinda hit that, so she's all on my jock," House repeats. Unlike the Cottages, though, Wilson instantly knows that House is telling the truth and he is shocked. House is surprised, too -- he was expecting Wilson to think he was kidding like everyone else did. Not so, House! You may be able to fool Wilson when it comes to practical jokes and rigged office chairs, but he knows you too well when it comes to the serious stuff (depending on who is writing that particular episode). Wilson wants the details, and I'm not sure if he's jealous of House or Cuddy ... or both. Wilson's follow-up question is what is House going to do now? House says he intends to ignore her for the rest of his life, and then he turns his attention to a symbolic mosquito bite on his hand. "She's your boss!" Wilson says. "Now I have two reasons to ignore her," House says, as if you need a reason to ignore someone. Wilson stares at him, and House admits that they only kissed, and he's sure it was only because Cuddy has boobs and there's nothing emotional behind it. Wilson begs to differ, and insists that the kiss meant something to House. With that, House goes to his desk to do some self-cutting, pretending it's to break the skin over his mosquito bite and let the poison out. He gets a call, and is more than happy to use it as an excuse to dismiss Wilson and his truth-telling from his office.
The Cottages are calling from the meeting room they've set up in Stewart's house. Taub reports that they found no toxins, and they have yet to induce a seizure. So it's a total failure at Stewart's house, then. House grows bored with this medical job talk and asks Cameron if she and Chase are engaged yet, as if he hasn't been scanning her finger for an engagement ring every day. Also, two doctors who work at PPTH getting engaged would certainly be the talk of the hospital rumor mill, which House seems to be plugged into even though everyone who works there hates him. So he already knows the answer to this question. Hadley sarcastically informs House that they're calling about Stewart and not Cameron's love life, but Cameron just answers that they are not engaged, and tells young Hadley that things move faster when you just answer House's questions. While House cuts his hand open with a pen knife, Cameron reveals that they don't live together, but spend most nights at Chase's place. House diagnoses them with commitment and control issues, although he's not sure who has the issues. "Yeah. Moves much faster this way," Hadley says. Slap her, Cameron. Slap her! Come on ... you know you want to. House asks where Stewart was when he had his first seizure, and Taub says he was in his hallway, near the front door. House thinks the seizure might have been triggered by a rise in his BP due to increased anxiety from approaching the outdoors. He wants the Cottages to repeat this by bringing Stewart outside, but Kumar points out that the last time Stewart went outside, he punched someone. Yes, excellent. I know just who I want Stewart to punch, too. "We're doctors, not bouncers," Kumar Dr. McCoys. House says if they won't bring Stewart outside, he'll bring the outside to Stewart.
