I. The Reverse "Who's Your Daddy"



[Cuddy enters House's office]

Cuddy: Sorry about your father.

House: I'm not. Are we done emoting now?

Cuddy: If there's anything I can do, just--

House: You know, you're right. I don't think I can sleep alone tonight.

[Cuddy pulls a syringe out of her labcoat and walks toward House.]

House: You can tell me that's liquid vicodin.

Cuddy: We're giving Ig shots to everyone who came in in contact with your patient. Shockingly, none of the nurses volunteered to administer yours.

[House starts to roll up his shirt sleeve]

Cuddy: Goes better in a large muscle. Drop your pants.

House: You know, I usually pay tens of dollars to hear that.

[House unzips his pants and leans on his desk. Cuddy smiles, yanks his pants down a bit, and gives him the shot.]

Cuddy: Funeral's tomorrow.

House: [turns back towards Cuddy] My mom called you?

Cuddy: There is a 3:40 flight out of Newark. If you leave now, you can be in Lexington tonight. [Cuddy sighs] Your mother wants you to deliver a eulogy.

House: "Eulogy," from the Greek for "good word." Now, if she asked me to deliver a bastardogy, I'd be happy to--

Cuddy: Then be a grown-up. Call your mother back, and tell her that you're sick with grief, but you're too busy to be there.

House: She knows when I'm lying.

Cuddy: Then start writing. [Cuddy leaves]

I.5. Wait for it...



[House's office: House stands up, stumbles and collapses on the floor.]

[CUT: We see House in a car, opening his eyes, disoriented. He turns to his left and sees Wilson driving.]

Wilson: I am not doing this because I care. [House smiles]

[CUT: House and Wilson are on the road.]

House: Cuddy drugged me. [House starts to put the pieces together.]
