He goes back to the classroom and says they're going to stress Greta's liver to find out if it's working right. Twin 1 has a problem with this, but House ignores her to ask Kumar why he's sitting behind her when he was fired. Kumar denies being fired, and is wearing his number necklace upside-down so it now says 9 instead of 6. Very clever, Kumar. Anne needlessly tattles on Kumar while 29 finds this all very amusing. Either way, Kumar gets fired. Again. Thing 1 continues her protest but is interrupted by 13, who has no problem with killing patients with silly tests and suggests shooting Greta up with Vitamin D and sticking her on a tanning bed. House says that's a good idea, but the "test" isn't specific to Greta's liver, so it won't work tell them what they need to know. Kumar tries again from the doorway: "We could get her wasted." He didn't bother turning his necklace around to make it a sideways 6. Also, he's wearing a hoodie. What doctor wears a hoodie under his lab coat? Not my doctor, that's for damn sure. Kumar says that how long it takes Greta to pass out from the alcohol will tell them how well her liver's working. "I like you, Number 9," House says. Kumar grins. Anne thinks this is so unfair. I guess next time, she'll think of ways to help the patient instead of ways to screw everyone else over.
House works on his Flying V guitar under a microscope until 18 walks in, asking why House wanted to see him. House says he noticed the ring from Brigham Young University on 18's hand and asks if he's a Mormon. "Or did your folks just do the lawns?" House asks, because he can't talk to black people without pointing out that they are black people. "The church has a very progressive attitude toward racial equality," 18 says. Too bad it's not as progressive towards, like, everything else. Sorry to offend you, Mormons, but your religion hates homosexuals and excommunicates its members and rips families apart, and that sucks. Also, 18? Prior to 1978, you weren't even allowed to attend temple ceremonies, so some progressive racial equality you have there. House only cares about this because drinking is against the Mormon religion due to their unprogressive attitude toward wino equality, and he can use 18 as the non-drinker control for the tequila test. 18 refuses, saying Greta's dreams don't outrank his religious beliefs. House, delighted to have the opportunity to tear someone down, says that at least Greta's dreams have a possibility of actually coming true. 18 turns to leave, and House reminds him that the test he's refusing to do could save Greta's life. 18 agrees to drink.
