We begin watching a woman give birth while her daughter videotapes it all. Mom's not too uncomfortable that she can't scold her daughter for taking her sweet time to show up in the delivery room, and the daughter says she had to take care of some work at her job, thereby telling us that she is old enough to work in a law firm. That means there will be quite the age gap between her and her soon-to-be-sister, and it also means that she's definitely not too young to take a few acting classes, as she is absolutely terrible at this. All she has to do is a voiceover right now, and she is conspicuously bad. But nice continuity putting the nurse from Lockdown in there. When it comes time for the baby to enter the world, Mom insists that her daughter film it, while the daughter refuses to film her mother's vagina. I can understand that, but if this was that important to Mom, then she should have talked it over with her daughter before game day, you know? We get a glimpse of the baby before a bunch of monitors go off and the doctor whisks the baby away. "Is something wrong?" Daughter asks. No, idiot. I'm sure all those monitors going off and the medical people rushing into the room is sign of good things, so why don't you keep filming, just in case you can capture your new sister's death on camera as well as her birth. Finally, one doctor takes her attention off the dying baby to tell her sister to turn the camera off already.
Oh, Jennifer Grey is playing the mother, Abbey. You'll recall that her real-life father, Joel Grey, has also appeared on this show. Let's hope she fares better than his character did. House passes out the very thin files of their newest patient, an eight-hour-old baby who can't breathe. That sounds like a big problem, but not so much that House can't turn away from the case as soon as Cuddy comes in asking for a minute of his time. It turns out that she wants a lot more that one minute; she needs House for the night. But not in a good way; the nanny can't work late because, unlike Cuddy, she spends time with her children and has to see her daughter's recital, and Cuddy has to stay late at work for a board meeting. Cuddy's back-up baby-sitter, her mother, has a cooking class. And finally, Cuddy lost her freaking mind. So she wants House to baby-sit. Even though ANYONE ELSE would be a better choice. Hell, leaving the kid tied down to her crib unsupervised would be a better choice. Leaving the kid tied down to an Iron Maiden would be a better choice. House tries to play the work card to get out of it, saying that he has a sick baby to take care of, while Cuddy's child is healthy, if sorely neglected. Cuddy cares even less about other people's children than she does her own, and says House can take care of his patient from her home via the phone. Cuddy won't even agree to give House sex in exchange for the chore, saying that she's still waiting for him to hire a female doctor. Even if, apparently, said female doctor isn't qualified. As long as the new hire has a vagina, that's all Cuddy wants.
