House writes on the Whiteboard and then sits back and stares at it, willing it to give him an answer. It doesn't, but that's cool because CTB has made a miraculous recovery and is standing in House's office right now wearing a smart red pantsuit. Oh, but it's not actually CTB; it's a dream. He asks her what symptom he saw, suggesting a myoclonic jerk. "BORING!" CTB says. House starts to wonder if he took too many Alzheimer's pills and is not floating around someone else's subconscious, for his loves rare neurological symptoms. Rare, my ass! Didn't we see one last week? Or did House just suspect Driver had one? Either way, we saw one in the first season, and we've seen it enough that I know how to spell it well enough to override my spellchecker. CTB just wants to know what they did together while she pours him a glass of sherry. House asks if that means they met for a drink. CTB asks if that's all they did, tooting her own horn by saying House thinks she's beautiful, smart, and always has to get everything she wants -- "the things he likes about himself." House likes that he's beautiful? Really? I didn't know he was all full of himself like that. Cockiness always makes a man less attractive. With that, CTB takes a seat on House's lap and says she always liked House's mind and his blue eyes. But stupid Wilson was around, so they had to meet up in a random bar to get away from him. "Do I feel familiar?" she asks, as House seems to be enjoying this part of his dream. "What do you feel?" CTB asks. Then she finally decides to answer one of her own questions: "electricity." With that, House wakes up with a start that knocks over the cup of coffee that his recent heart attacked body shouldn't be drinking anyway.
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.
