It was ngày to remember for Chase and Cameron since this was the ngày when they’re new house is being blessed. All family and Những người bạn were there to celebrate with them and all were wearing smiles as they catch up with each other. House, although staying with the boys, was looking directly at Cuddy who was then with the girls. She was wearing her tim, trái tim melting smile while carrying one of Cameron’s nieces. He could see how she craves to be a real mother herself but he fears to be a father himself.
Later that evening, Cuddy was seated on her giường with her back against the headboard. She was đọc the new memo passed bởi the board to her that morning while a cup of trà was waiting to be drank on her nightstand. House went out her bathroom while wiping his hands with a hand towel. He looked at her who was seriously đọc the folder and đã đưa ý kiến the line below with a plain voice.
House: I can’t find some band-aid in the phòng bếp, nhà bếp kit, I looked at your medicine cabinet in the bathroom after and I happened to see… birth control pills…
Cuddy looked at him bởi the time he uttered the word “control”. Both were serious as they exchange suspicious looks.
House: I have to know what’s going on here…
Cuddy sighed as she took a sip from her tea.
Cuddy: You’re angry that ---
House: I’m not mad at you… I’m just upset that ---
Cuddy: bạn want kids?
Silence ate the bedroom for awhile.
House: No but --- <He sat down on the edge of the giường and he let the towel drop on the floor and sighed> bạn should have told me about it….
Cuddy: bạn knew that I were on them almost a năm now. Even before we got together, I am on them why suddenly bạn come running to me asking me this?
House: Because I have now the right to know what bạn are putting in your body because I am your boyfriend, reality check, boss.
Cuddy: <smiled> Oh don’t worry, I am not forgetting that idea… <She continued đọc the folder>
House: I thought bạn want a baby…
Cuddy: I already have… Rachel’s here, remember?
House: <stammered> bạn do realize that that it’s different when it’s from you, right?
Cuddy looked at him.
Cuddy: Your point?
House: I know you’re getting what I mean to say ---
Cuddy: If bạn want a baby, just tell me then if I can give bạn one that’s the end of this conversation.
House was surprised with what she’d said. He rolled his tongue on his teeth as Cuddy looked at him with one eyebrow arched.
House: I didn’t ----
He was stunned with Cuddy calling him sternly like before. He was thinking Cuddy would call him “Greg” this time but she didn’t. He sighed and stood up and his eyes weren’t meeting hers.
Cuddy: Where are bạn going?
House: <Putting his coat> Home…
Cuddy: I thought you’re going to stay here for the night…
House: Changed my mind… <He went out the room with his keys at hand>
bởi tiếp theo morning, House met up with Wilson outside the hospital. They were seated opposite each other as House was smoking a cigar. Wilson shook his head whenever his friend puffs.
Wilson: Does Cuddy know you’re smoking?
House: Uh-huh. She does too.
Wilson: Yah but not like you. <He picked the cigar box on the bench> bạn almost empty the box.
House: <puffs> I just need to get the hell out of my brain.
Wilson: Patient problem?
Wilson: Cuddy? <House didn’t smile instead he puffed again> Thought bạn slept in her place last night?
House: I nearly did. We fought over a small thing…
Wilson: It isn’t small, House, bạn wouldn’t fight over a small thing. Sure it’s a big thing.
House: Wilson, a small thing is a small thing. <Puffed and silence> We fought over a birth control pill.
Wilson scoffed and tried not to laugh some more.
Wilson: Oh… <giggled> So, what about the pill?
House: She’s taking them…
Wilson: I suppose bạn knew that ion years ago. Who cares, actually it’s good she’s taking them.
House: No, it’s not.
Wilson: Unless bạn want kids then ---
House: She told me that too. Women are complicated. Yesterday it’s icey cold then suddenly it’s greenhouse effect. --- I thought she wanted her own.
Wilson: Cuddy knows what she wanted, House. Maybe it’s bạn who wanted em bé and take note of that –ies I placed in the end. B-A-B-I-E-S.
House puffed and finished his cigar.
