Wilson tries to help House out by suggesting that Cuddy may have used one of her childhood pets' names as her password. That doesn't help House, though, as he has no idea what any of Cuddy's pets were named because he never listens when Cuddy talks about that stuff. Because I honestly can't figure out why House is even with Cuddy other than the sex. He really doesn't seem that interested in doing anything with her beyond that. Of course, Wilson does pay attention to other people, so he tells House that Cuddy had a dog named Ronaldo. As House types that into the computer, Foreman enters and says they have a new case: a college student with bronchitis that isn't bronchitis. House snaps at him to take care of the patient himself because he's busy. Foreman's feelings are totally hurt. Tiffany interrupts to accuse House of lying, saying no doctor would turn his back on a dying patient for such a selfish reason. House shrugs that he doesn't really care about a dying patient who isn't "interesting."
In the principal's office, Colleen is losing her patience. We're more than halfway into the show and House still hasn't answered any of her questions. House says Cuddy is mad at him because she's genetically programmed to make a big deal out of little things, i.e. because she's female. And now that he said that, he expects Colleen to be mad at him for the same reason. Zack speaks up and says she isn't like that. House is delighted to take the attention off himself and cause trouble at the same time, and says Zack shouldn't stick up for someone who called him a pathetic jerk. Zack shrugs that that was a long time ago and Colleen didn't mean it anyway. Colleen says it was only two days ago and he doesn't know if she meant it or not. Zack says he does, because he knows how she thinks. Colleen and House scoff at this. Clearly, the only person who knows how Colleen thinks is House, because he just played her and Zack like violins.
