Foreman reports to Cuddy, who makes him an offer she doesn't think he can refuse: doubling his salary and giving him his own diagnostic group to lead. WHAAAAAA? Come on, Cuddy! Why are you rewarding a guy whose shitty diagnostic medicine skills recently killed a patient with his own diagnostic team that PPTH doesn't even need? They have House, and he costs them enough money and hospital resources, as has been previously established. And yet, Cuddy promises Foreman "complete autonomy," which didn't work when the Brits promised it to the Americans during the Revolutionary War and doesn't work now. Foreman sneers that when he eventually gets a case he can't solve, it'll go to House, like, way to trust your abilities there, Foreman. House doesn't go around assuming that he'll get a case he can't solve, does he? Cuddy says Foreman can let the patient die if he doesn't want to go to House -- he has that choice. Wow, this seems like a deal that certainly has the patients' best interests at heart. Fortunately, after some thinking and a bit of the sad music theme I really like, Foreman rejects the offer. Cuddy can't believe it and asks him why. "Because he's evil," Foreman says. Cuddy says if he's basing that on House sabotaging his job interview, he shouldn't. House didn't sabotage the interview -- Cuddy did. Foreman turns and leaves the room, but Cuddy calls him back saying that she didn't really sabotage the interview. The fact that Foreman believed her when she said she did, though, means that he still had some faith in House. That's not enough for Foreman, who says that if it wasn't House who did it, was someone at PPTH. "I can't work here," he says, like he's above that kind of thing.
