As they approach the plane, Valerie produces a text message showing that she notified Russ of the change in plans, clearing her. Russ suddenly staggers, and then insists he isn’t drunk. He feels nauseous and throws up on Valerie’s shoes, and then goes back into the terminal. Valerie apologizes to Norris, saying that she had no idea that Russ as drinking again.

Episode Quotes
Dr. Taub: If I ask why we're in Wilson's office, is there any chance I'll get a straight answer?
Dr. House: Try it! Try it!

Dr. House: Some idiot I went to med school with keeps leaving messages. Wants to drop by for lunch.
Dr. Wilson: So tell him no.
Dr. House: It's complicated.
Dr. Wilson: It's too complicated for you to tell someone you don't like to screw off? That's practically your hobby.

Dr. House: In the great game of chess that is our relationship, Wilson sees only one move ahead. I see dozens. That is why he will never mate me. That's a chess term.

Dr. Hadley: Why do you want to meet her so badly?
Dr. House: Psychopaths always fascinate me. I think it's their cultural literacy and strong family values. Or is that Jews?

Dr. House: Those of you who haven't slept together, you can go. Everyone else, stay behind.
(Taub stays behind with Foreman and Hadley)
Dr. Taub: (to Hadley)Oh. Sorry. That was our secret, right?

Dr. Hadley: No one's going to risk their life to save hers.
Dr. House: Man, one false accusation from a psychopath, and you turned out to be a real bummer.

Dr. Wilson: Wait a minute, is that acutally a check for him?
Dr. House: No. It's a giant novelty item for winning the lottery. You're just standing really far away.

Dr. Foreman: Discharge summary. Taub's handwriting isn't helping much. Apparently on the third day of admission, apparently the patient underwent rabbit thumping.
Dr. Hadley: Um... Radiotherapy.
