In the external office, the team has the usual argument over whether Henry's weirdo behavior is a symptom. House says it isn't. Adams says it's crazy to buy flowers for a doll. House says that everyone in the room has a sex doll. Taub: "Oooh! A metaphor! What you didn't foresee is that I actually do have a sex doll." Good one! But House meant Taub's children. Eew! But House means that the children are Taub's excuse for not being in a relationship, like Park's parents and Adams's charity work. Chase cheerfully admits that he has random sex, but he claims to be in a regular relationship. House says that doesn't count because she was a patient. Park says she has a date tonight: that jamming-with-a-band thing. House says she'll bail. Taub suggests he hand his kids over to Park's parents. Another good one! Nice work by Taub in this scene. Then he moves on to call House on his hypocrisy in accusing them of avoiding real relationships when his subplot involves spending a lot of time and energy on interviewing prostitutes. House admits that he's got a valid point. And on his way out the door, he says that RealDolls are presumably filled with bacteria and all sorts of gross stuff, so they should "swab her out" and find out what diseases are lurking in there.
House is in a cafe with the prostitute who's quitting. He asks her to stay on the job. What if he went up to three days a week? Nope! She's getting married to a guy who likes schlocky horror movies. He tries to convince her that she needs to keep her job as a way of asserting her independence, but it doesn't work. She says she'll miss him too, kisses him gently and leaves. Poor House!
Amy is in the stirrups. Adams gets into position and announces that she's pretty skeeved out by this. It's completely clean inside Amy, which is better than the alternative. But Chase has found a swelling in one of Amy's breasts. It feels like a tumor. Unusual!
Now Amy's being slid into the MRI tube. There's an air-filled mass in her abdomen. Chase and Adams tell House about their wacky theories about what it could be. Adams insists on calling Amy "it" instead of "her." House says to cut Amy open. Chase says they can't just destroy their patient's seven-thousand-dollar property. House says to ask Henry's permission and if he says no, that's evidence of him being crazy so they need a new theory.
