House finds Cuddy and Wilson in CTB's room and says he has an idea of how to access his memory and remember CTB's symptom. Cuddy turns it down without even hearing what it is. House ignores her and says they can do some "deep brain stimulation" and zap parts of his hypothalamus. Cuddy points out the danger inherent in drilling holes in a fractured skull and then zapping an injured brain with lightning bolts. Wilson sighs that Cuddy is right. One of CTB's monitors makes a beeping sound, and Cuddy says CTB's brain activity just spiked. Wilson is excited, and starts calling out to CTB, asking her to wake up. "Random spikes are common," House points out. "Shut up!" Cuddy whispers to him. That was a nice little illustration of how truly oblivious House is to other people's feelings. He'd rather take the opportunity to show off his medical knowledge about random brain spikes than consider that Wilson might not want to hear it right now. And even when Cuddy points that out to him, House doesn't even look apologetic. He gets a page from the Cottages and asks Wilson to ask CTB if they can leave.
House enters the conference room, and the Cottages are obviously not thrilled to see that he brought Wilson with him. Choosing their words carefully and eyeing Wilson, they say the angiogram and the tox screen came out negative. Wilson asks why they'd make a big deal out of negative results. So now they have no choice but to come forward with the real reason they wanted House there. Kumar hands House a bottle of pills he found in CTB's apartment. CTB's been hiding prescription diet pills, amphetamines, and anti-depressants in a bottle of vitamins. The diet pills, Taubs points out, can damage a heart. Wilson says there's no way CTB was taking enough of them to do that. He would have noticed if she was. House points out that Wilson didn't know she was taking them at all, and since she hid them in a bottle of vitamins, she obviously didn't want him to. Why would she take them now? She's skinny. Either she had a secret fat past or current self-esteem issues. Shame on House for thinking it was a good idea for Wilson to be there in the first place. Foreman wants to get CTB's heart beating again so they can do a definitive test that will prove diet pill damage, but Wilson says they're not going to do that because starting her heart could kill her if they aren't right about the diet pill damage. House defers to Wilson and tells them to test CTB's heart without getting it beating again by cracking her chest open and sticking a finger in the valve and feeling around for damage. Boy, does that sound like a terrible idea. I wouldn't even try to fix my plumbing that way, let alone someone's heart. Foreman points out this is not exactly a safer (nor, I have to imagine, accurate) way to do the test, but House says it's better than CTB's heart blowing out if they restart it and the diagnosis is wrong. "When did we start assuming we're wrong?" Foreman asks. He starts to point out that they're treating this case differently because of who the patient is, but House won't hear it, and he's the boss.
