After the break, House holds the now packaged toe up and says he just got lucky, diagnostic medicine-ly speaking. His fake case is actually real. Kumar asks where Foreman and Hadley are. He sounds angry, probably because he's sick of him and Taub being stuck doing the work of four doctors because half the team gets to take off work to throw hissy fits. It's the worst group project ever. House informs them that their team of four is now a team of three. He's expecting Hadley to be angry for a while but come back eventually. Too bad. While House tries to focus on the case, Taub and Kumar just keep asking questions about Foreman and Hadley. Haven't they gotten enough attention? Guess not, since Kumar sticks up for them, saying they're "good doctors." "Separately, they're great doctors. Better than you," House says. Oh really? Foreman's patient once died from a bra infection and Hadley killed a patient AND his dog. Face it: they suck. At everything. House tells them to check out the priest's house and tell Hadley to test Danny's blood for carbon monoxide and stick him in a hyperbaric chamber. If it was carbon monoxide poisoning that was bad enough to kill toes, I'm pretty sure Danny would be dead by now. Lots of people die of carbon monoxide poisoning and their toes stay attached.
Oh, good. More Foreman and Hadley. Foreman cleans out his locker and says he's going to get a letter of recommendation from Cuddy and find a new job. Indignant Hadley doesn't think he should give up so soon, but Foreman has to admit that House was right: being with Hadley affected his judgment. She's just that awesome and perfect and tragic. Hadley offers to quit instead, saying it'll be easier for her to find another job. For real -- has Foreman already forgotten that he's unemployable? "Not like this one," Foreman says. Yes, because being House's fellow is so wonderful. Hadley says they should both quit. Foreman doesn't think that will accomplish anything. He's wrong, though. It will make me very, very happy. "I'll be fine. We'll be fine," Foreman says. I don't care. We don't care. They kiss chemistrylessly.
Kumar and Taub get their own scene, but not really since they're just talking about Foreman and Hadley. What if they just stuck a little picture of Hadley in the corner of the TV screen at all times? Then she could be in every single scene but we wouldn't have to hear about her. I'll just put the closed captioning on so it'll cover her face up and I won't have to see her, either. Kumar mentions Hadley's bisexuality out of nowhere, saying Hadley should invite "friends" over for her and Foreman to play with. "She's not a nympho, she's bisexual," Taub says. She was both just a few episodes ago, a time when we only had to deal with her and not her and Foreman. How I miss those days in retrospect. Taub think he's found the source of the carbon monoxide poisoning Danny doesn't have in an ashtray full of cigarettes. Someone's been reading the surgeon general's warnings too carefully.
