Chase and Cameron start to administer the olestra to Dibala, who asks if they're sure about the diagnosis. Silly Dibala! Of course they are! What kind of idiot would prove a diagnosis with treatment instead of tests? Cameron is quick to tell Dibala that they aren't sure, while Chase tries to be more diplomatic and explains that this is their "best guess" and the olestra will bind to the dioxin and flush it out of Dibala's system if it's what's wrong with him. Yeah, flush it out with anal leakage. Dibala demands to know where Chase is from, noting a British tinge to his Australian accent. "Most people don't notice it," Chase says. Well, most people are Americans who think all those accents sound the same. Chase says he spent a year in England to attend seminary, which obviously didn't work out. Dibala decides to tell a story about the Catholic priests in his childhood village who were "good people" but couldn't do much when his little sisters were dying from TB.
Apparently, House didn't bother to go to Cuddy for permission to return to PPTH before he just waltzed into the meeting room and started "helping," so now he and Foreman have to have a discussion about it in Cuddy's office. Foreman is pissed because he only fired Hadley because he thought House was gone for good. Really, is that the argument you want to make to your boss? Whining about how you fired your girlfriend? Ugh, Foreman. House says he "need[s] this in [his] life." That is also a bad argument -- this isn't about your life, House. It's about the best thing for PPTH. But I guess personal arguments like this are the best way to approach Cuddy, who is just as unprofessional as everyone else. She says that House said last week that he needed to not be at PPTH. "It's a process. I'm learning," House says. "Screwing me over as you go," Foreman says. Because it's all about you, Foreman. Cuddy says that House can stay on in an unofficial capacity (does that mean unpaid? Because what a great deal this is for Cuddy!), but Foreman is ultimately in charge and House can't do any medical procedures or associate with any patients until he gets his medical license back. House is just fine with this.
