Danny's lying on yet another gurney in yet another dimly-lit room. He asks Kumar if House is "always like that." Kumar says no -- House is usually a lot worse. He was favoring Danny because he's a fellow atheist. Kumar, apparently, is not, as he tries to win Danny's faith back by asking if he's considered that God is testing him with this. Right, I'm sure Danny never considered that possibility in the last four years. Danny says he's already failed that test, so whatever god is doing to him now is just plain mean. Taub finds some "intercostal neuralgia." What about Pentecostal neuralgia? Heh heh, just a little church joke. Kumar tries to explain it to Danny, but he isn't paying attention because he's just gone blind in his right eye.
The Whiteboard O'Symptoms is starting to get crowded. Hadley pipes up to suggest something systemic, like an autoimmune disorder. Everyone takes a second to recover from the shock of Hadley actually doing her job. Then Taub and Kumar shoot down all of her stupid ideas -- tests for autoimmune disorders have been negative and it can't be an infection because there are no white blood cells. House takes this time to talk about Duran Duran. One night, they had lady fans screaming and clawing to get a piece of them. Another night, nothing. "I don't speak hair band," Hadley says. Kumar bristles: "they weren't a hair band, they were new romantics." Oh, go polish your Simon LeBon poster, Kumar. Of course, Hadley's the one who figures out House's riddle. The night without fans occurred twenty years after the fan night, when Duran Duran doesn't have any more fans. Ouch. The writer of this episode really hates Duran Duran. Anyway, this is all to say that Danny could have an infection, but there are no white cells fighting it because he doesn't have any. House orders them all off to biopsy Danny's spleen.
Not so fast, Hadley. Now that there's real work to be done, she hangs back to talk to House instead. She asks if he'll re-hire Foreman if she quits since he can't get another job and she can. Oh, bullshit. There are plenty of hospitals out there that need doctors and will hire you even without your precious recommendation. They probably aren't very good hospitals, but those are what we call "consequences." Hadley says she's willing to make such a huge sacrifice for Foreman and that he knows about her plan. House says he'll hire Foreman back. Great.
