Taub's stuck with Nick for hours on end as he performs the glucose tolerance test. Nick complains that he's hungry, having probably exhausted any and all negative comments about Taub's appearance at this point. He then asks Taub if he can make sure that Hadley isn't at his bedside any more, because he doesn't want to share his "rich imaginative life" with her. Hadley making out with Cuddy on a bed with a mirror on the ceiling? That's not all that creative, Nick. Stop patting yourself on the back. Taub says sexual thoughts are normal, as if that's supposed to make Nick feel better. The thoughts are normal. Saying them out loud kind of isn't. Nick says he'd rather be judged by his actions than his thoughts, and when he says he's never cheated on his wife, Taub makes an "I DID!!!" face. Nick picks up on it, much to Taub's surprise, and says Taub is a creep. Taub runs away.
He heads down to the morgue, where House is waiting for him with a racquetball ball. Taub passes an exiting morgue worker on his way in, and I have to wonder what that guy is thinking. There's a doctor stretched out on a vacant slab, tossing and catching a ball, and now he's having some sort of meeting there. Also, why hasn't the morgue banned House and his team from the area after that time that he shot up one of their corpses? Or the time Cameron tried to make them answer her calls from newspapers? They are nothing but trouble down there, but the morgue keeps putting up with it. Taub wants to know why House paged him to the morgue. House says the morgue is the only place at PPTH with a perfect racquetball wall, and he demands that Taub update him on Nick's condition while hitting a ball off of it with the racquet provided. And if Taub refuses to do it, he'll be fired. I'd just like to say that the morgue wall is a perfect racquetball wall only if the sport now includes big metal drawers in its courts. Taub accepts the challenge, and attempts to hit the ball while telling House that Nick tested negative for diabetes. He has some trouble when the ball bounces off a corner of a drawer and gets caught up in the legs of an autopsy table with a dead guy on it, but otherwise seems to be doing okay. Taub says he's thinking that Nick's thyroid is affected instead of his pancreas, and gets so excited when House says that "makes sense" that he goes flying into a morgue workstation packed with breakable items and destroys them all. See, morgue? This is what you get. Exasperated, Taub admits that he isn't playing racquetball with Wilson and only said he was because he wanted a department head to owe him a favor. He didn't realize that it would come at a cost of his time and the hatred of the entire morgue department, who now have to clean up after him. He should have known, though -- how long do you have to work for House before you realize that helping someone hide something from him is a bad idea that will only bite you in the ass? House congratulates Taub for putting a good effort into making his racquetball skills look convincing, but says it wasn't good enough -- the racquet House provided was for squash, and any real racquetball player would have known that immediately.
