House heads right for Cuddy, interrupting her meeting with some random woman to tell her that she is an "EVIL CUN...ning woman." While the random woman stands there, not sure where to look, House continues that this is a "massive turn-on." And that's all the follow-up we'll get about whatever weird flirty date thing they had going on before it was torpedoed by the presence of Honey last week. House acknowledges the other woman in the room with a "you girls can gossip later," but she stays around, looking very interested in the conversation when Cuddy asks House what he's talking about. With his strange bottle still in hand, House accuses Cuddy of sabotaging Foreman's job interview, then tells the random woman that he was trying to throw her out of the room, "but in a polite way." By assuming that two women together would be gossiping? Very polite. Instead of standing her ground, the woman just collects her gossip charts and leaves.
Cuddy says it looks like House is off the anti-depressants, and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad one. I don't know if I liked House being all loopy and mugging all the time, but it was nice to see him acting a little lighter and maybe enjoying life a little more. Cuddy asks House if Foreman thinks she sabotaged his interview, and House reassures her that he's the only one who thinks it was her, only because he knows that it wasn't him. Cuddy asks what possible motive she could have for doing that, and House gets her to admit that she doesn't want Foreman to leave PPTH and is preparing to offer him something that will make him stay, pending board approval. Cuddy says it wasn't her and foolishly turns her back to House. He gets up a little too close to her, and she turns back around, asking him what's doing. He claims to be looking for a "tell" that will prove she's lying about not sabotaging Foreman, but I don't know how many tells you have in your ass, which was where he's looking. Cuddy sends him away, telling him to send a "Nurse Unger" back in. Nurse Unger, eh? More like "Nurse NOTBRENDA"! I'm starting to think she's never coming back, you guys, and it makes me sad. I mean, can you imagine what she would have done if she were the one in Cuddy's office when House came in? Decapitated him with a well-placed manila folder papercut, to be sure.
