House explains that "she" actually did say that -- the "she" being Martha. While the Cottages try to diagnose their patient, House is trying to hack into Cuddy's password-protected laptop. He wonders aloud why someone would password-protect her computer when she keeps it in a locked drawer in her locked office. Martha points out that Cuddy knows one of her employees regularly breaks into patients' homes, so she probably just didn't want to take any chances. But when she isn't getting on her high horse, she's actually helpful, as she suggests that the patient's computer science major roommates may well be working with toxic, lung-destroying materials. House only cares about this, of course, because one of those computer science major roommates might be able to help him hack into Cuddy's computer. He takes Foreman with him to search the dorm while the other Cottages stay behind to test the patient for what House thinks he actually has: sarcoidosis.
Back in the classroom, the kids have established that House did, in fact, try to force the college kids to hack into the laptop, albeit not at gunpoint. Alex just wants to know whose laptop it is. Tiffany figures it must be Cuddy's. House quotes from Ghostbusters, which Timmy instantly recognizes, much to House's apparent glee. Tiffany asks if Cuddy was mad at House for hacking into her computer, and he has to explain to a bunch of children who are still old enough to know better that he stole and hacked into the computer after finding out that Cuddy was mad at him to try to "fix things." Now the teacher has something to say, asking House if he really thought he could fix his relationship by stealing his girlfriend's stuff. Humorless Bitch Lady Lawyer has been waiting all day for this: "looks like you're the moron!"
Night time. Taub backs his Hyundai (I guess he really is struggling for money these days) up to the doors of the parking garage, where Chase and House are waiting for him along with the Piano of Covert Activity. They unload some kind of massive weaponry from the trunk of the car and set it up aimed at Cuddy's office door. Timmy Morgan interrupts to say House stole this from Thunderbolt and Lightfoot. The kid really does know his classics -- that movie is from well before I was born. House says Timmy is right, and the true story is that he is suddenly leaning in the elevator, wearing a jogging suit, and smoking a cigar. "The Thomas Crown Affair," Timmy says immediately; "the Steve McQueen version." Tiffany demands to know the real story. The advertising guy wants a chance to tell the kids about his exciting job, too. Just to make him feel like shit, House says he can go right ahead, then smiles as the children cry out "no!" in horror and in unison.
