Hadley administers the drugs to Jackson, who wants to know what she's giving him. She says "some extra medicine" and then starts making conversation with him, because why have Taub or Kumar bond with a patient when we can give Hadley more screentime? Jackson admits that he's not really into basketball, but his mother made him do it. Hadley says her parents were like that, too, until one of them made Hadley's life really inconvenient by getting sick, thereby earning Hadley's hatred and disgust forevermore. Jackson reveals that he really wants to take dance classes (GIRL ALERT!!!) but his mother wasn't having that and forced him to do basketball instead. And Jackson's father went along with whatever Mom wanted. With that, Hadley notices that Jackson's palms are red. Jackson asks what that means. "We still don't know what's wrong with you," Hadley says. Way to scare the shit out a child, Hadley. She really has no concept of what to say and what not to say to kids, huh?
In a hilariously overdramatic scene, Cuddy bursts into Wilson's office and somberly reports that House is, in fact, in a good mood.
Kumar gets some lines for a change, but they're about Foreman and Hadley, of course. He finds Foreman alone in the meeting room and says it's too bad things didn't work out with the Super Couple, but it's probably for the best since Hadley's bisexual, so there's twice the opportunities for her to cheat on him. Kumar continuities that like two days before she started dating Foreman, Hadley was having one-night stands with random women. "You really think you can compete with that?" Kumar says. Ha! Foreman looks Concerned.
Meanwhile, in House's office, Wilson and Cuddy have arrived to confront House, who's trying to nap here, people. How rude of them. He refuses to open his eyes at their commands, and Wilson thinks he's faking being asleep until he kicks House's chair and his head lolls to the side. Uh oh. Kumar and Foreman notice something's wrong as Wilson and Cuddy crouch over House. Wilson takes his pulse and says he's not breathing. Hooray! Wilson gets to do CPR on him like he's always dreamed! Cuddy tells Kumar and Foreman, who have run into the room at this point, to call a code. Kumar does, but Foreman uses his neurologist skills to determine that if House isn't breathing but still has a weak pulse, then all he has to do to get things going again is rip open House's shirt and give him a double titty twister. It works -- House screams himself awake and gasps for air. "You stopped breathing!" Wilson says immediately, like, I think House figured that out when he woke up with an oxygen deprivation headache and also, give the guy a second to get the lungs going again. What a nag! Cuddy just says an exasperated "what the hell is going on?" Oh, like she doesn't know -- it's House health crisis #13,204,123,412! The man comes back from the dead every season. Just because it happened twice last season doesn't mean they're going to skip it this year.
