They arrive to the hotel without saying a word, go to their room and lock the door.
‘You’re not gonna say anything? wewe know, something like:’ Cuddy imitates House’s tone. ‘Yeah, nice guy, wewe choose your boyfriends very well...’
House looks at her serious and without saying anything goes to the bathroom and close the door. Cuddy gets angry. ‘Hey, do not ignore me!’
House wets his faces and sits on the floor while Cuddy is shouting and knocking at the door. ‘Can wewe tell me what the hell was that? Can't behave as an adult once in your life?’ House takes a vicodin pill and looks at the ceiling.
‘David hasn't done anything wrong to you. What the hell were wewe doing? If wewe were jealous stop pretending that wewe don't care about anything.’
House stands up and opens the door. ‘I don't care what wewe did with your personal life in the past, and that guy looked like a jerk!’ He goes out of the bathroom and starts looking for his pajamas.
‘Why? Because he was with me? wewe too, but he didn't drink so much and he could remember, wewe know?’
‘Okay, this is enough Lisa.’ He takes the room’s keys and goes out of the room. Cuddy stands still in silence. ‘Greg... Shit!’ She puts on her pajamas and lies on the bed, sad.
House walks near the hotel thinking. ‘Fuck..’
Cuddy can’t sleep, goes to the balcony and tries to convince herself. ‘He is an idiot! He is just an egocentric, selfish and unbearable guy.’
House keeps walking around there and talks to himself. ‘Jealous!! Me?? Jealous?? What a stupid claim!! Jealous of that monkey with expensive shoes, just because... he... shared a part of his life... with Lisa...’ He stops walking and starts feeling so strange.
Lisa keeps talking to herself, too. ‘Fuck Lisa! Stop thinking about him! He has no feelings for anybody, even less for you! He is just an idiot who has to assume that my punda is mine and I do whatever I want with whoever I want...’
‘Shit!’ House hits his forehead with his hand and bites his fist. Whereas, Cuddy still cannot sleep. It’s been a while since House has gone. She takes her cell phone to dial House’s number. ‘What do I do?...’ She presses the call key but hangs up before it sounds. House feels stupid and goes back to the room, then he opens the door and comes in. She opens her eyes and turns to look at the door. She doesn’t say anything, but he does.
‘Umm... I... I just wanted to apologize. I've behaved like a child... even zaidi than normal I mean...’
Cuddy nods and goes inside the room. ‘Actually I’m used to it... this is nothing that hasn’t happened hundred times before...’
‘Yeah, I guess...’ He looks around.
‘I'm sorry too.. for shouting...I Lost my temper...’
‘I’m used to it too... don’t worry.’
They stay in front of each other in silence looking around. Cuddy looks at him. ‘C-can... can I ask wewe a question? It’s silly but I need to know...’
‘If I had a dollar every time someone has alisema that to me...’
‘Were you... jealous of.. David?’
House tries to answer as fast as he can. ‘Jealous?? Of course I wasn't!!!’
Cuddy smiles a little disappointed. ‘Ah... okay... I thought...Well wewe seemed. Silly me. You! Jealous! Of someone else!’ She laughs slightly.
House, ashamed, looks at the floor and starts blushing. ‘Well... I wasn't..’
She looks at him frowning. ‘Are you... blushing?
‘Me?? At all!’ He rubs his face wih his hands and she approaches to him and holds his hands to look at his face. Cuddy bites her lower lip and frowns. House look at her doing that and shakes his head before looking up to her eyes.
They get separated, put on their pajamas and get into bed. Time passes and they can only hear their breaths. Both are awake but in silence. Cuddy can’t sleep thinking about all that happened today, and specially thinking about the strange behavior of House. She wants to know the truth. ‘I’m going to ask David to go out with me...’
House turns to look at her. ‘What??!!’
She doesn’t look at him, just sighs and repeats what she’s said. ‘I'm going to ask David to go out with me.’
‘But... why?? wewe haven't seen him for years!! wewe don't even know if he's seeing someone... and wewe don't upendo him!!!’
‘It was nice to see him and wewe have no idea about me and who and what I like au dislike.’
‘Yes, well, yes, maybe, but I'm not stupid and I know wewe don't like him. Come on, wewe can't like him!!’
She turns on her side. ‘Yes, right, I don't like him. I just wanna check one thing, thank wewe for your help...’
‘What?? Are wewe doing some kind of experiment??’
‘No, I just wanted to see your reaction.’
‘Are wewe using me?? Like a panya in a lab??’
She looks at him. ‘I wanted to see the real Greg...’
‘Ha!! The real Greg.... and you’re gonna use secret cameras and hidden microphones in my bathroom too?? Very fun Lisa!!’ He turns and shows his back.
‘Are wewe angry?’
‘I'm ... I'm.... anxious to know the answer to my question: what am I for wewe then, if I'm not just an employee??’
‘You... wewe are... an special friend with an... special character... and...and...’ She turns and shows her back. ‘Goodnight.’
House sounds a bit angry. ‘And what?? Come on Lisa, do not hide!!! Face your problem!! What else??!!’
‘And I don't know who is worse, if wewe au me! After twenty years why can't wewe admit that wewe feel something for me? Something zaidi than sexual attraction...’
Greg looks to the mattress in silence.
‘Come on! Face this. wewe know, I know, everybody knows it...’
He looks at her. ‘Then why are wewe fucking asking???!!!’
‘Because I want to hear it from you.’
House majibu angrily. ‘Well, if wewe take the trouble of doing all this is because wewe feel something for me, am I wrong??’
Cuddy is very angry now and words came out of her mouth. ‘YES I feel something! That's what wewe wanted to hear? There wewe have it.’
House remains shocked and Cuddy keeps shounting angry. ‘Yes, House, wewe are not just an employee, you're the fucking employee who I cannot control, and who always get whatever he wants and who eventually is going to drive me mad.’
A few sekunde later, House is zaidi calmed. ‘Fire me then, it will be better for your health...’
‘You don't want... which is quite different...’
‘You want to resign? You're free to do it. There is nothing important for wewe in that damn hospital. Why don't wewe quit if it’s what wewe want?’
‘I don't have any reason for leaving the hospital and I'm not going to resing to a job that I enjoy!! And I have zaidi reasons than wewe think...’
‘Oh yes? Really? I don’t think so.’ They turn and onyesha their back to each other. ‘You are a coward.’
House replies. ‘Look who's talking...’
‘What else do wewe want me to say?’
‘Nothing... you've alisema a lot of things today...’
‘Yes, wewe should think about all of them and meditate a bit.’
He turns to look at her. ‘Why do wewe think I'm not doing it??’
‘Because wewe are House, wewe don't care about everything else that has nothing to do with you.’
‘You think wewe know me but wewe don't...’
‘I know wewe as far as wewe let people to know you; as far as wewe let me to know you. And wewe will never change.’
House starts shouting angrily. ‘Years zamani I was different and I got hurt!! I'm not gonna get hurt again!! I DON'T WANT TO GET HURT AGAIN!!!’
‘You know, everybody gets hurt, you’re not special, and that's not a reason to send everything to hell. wewe are not the only one who have got hurt. I get hurt, people get hurt, and they don't give up.’
‘It's easier alisema than done!!’
Cuddy looks at the ceiling and sighs. ‘It's easier not to do something and avoid trying. If wewe don't try, wewe don't get what wewe want.’
‘If wewe don't try, wewe don't fail... When you've got nothing, you've got nothing to lose.’
‘If wewe have nothing to lose why wewe don't try?’
House remains thinking. ‘You might win something and then lose it, and everything would be even worse.’
‘No, it would be the same. And at least wewe have tried and you've learned something new. wewe are very pessimistic. Not always goes wrong.’
‘It has never gone right for me.’
‘It's wewe choice. For everything. wewe can be a coward all your life, it’s your decision.’
‘Coward... I would like to see how wewe would react in my position.’
She chuckles. ‘What is exactly your position?’
‘A man who got hurt kwa someone he loved and who has Lost all his faith in human beings.’
‘Everybody has been hurt kwa someone who loved. Losing your faith in humans only hurt people who upendo you.’
‘And who loves me? That's not a problem for me...’
She sighs. ‘Wilson... loves you, in his own way... I-I upendo you...’
House frowns and she gets nervous because of what she just said. Cuddy keeps talking. ‘You think wewe know everything but wewe know nothing. wewe think you're the only miserable in the world, but if wewe are is only because wewe want.’
‘I don't want to be miserable... life has made me a miserable person...’
‘And wewe do nothing to change it.’ Cuddy sighs for the twenty third time tonight. ‘House, am I just a boss for you?’
He remains thinking but doesn’t answer. Cuddy sighs, again.
‘You know? I think I'll call David tomorrow...’
‘Because I want...I don't need to give wewe an explication... I'm tired of waiting.’
‘Of waiting... for what?’
She looks at him. ‘A worth guy.’
Greg looks at the mattress disappointed. ‘Well... good luck with your research of your perfect guy...’ He turns sad and lies again.
‘I'm not looking for a perfect guy. I'm looking for a guy with whom I have confidence, to whom I can yell, laugh with... be myself...’
‘A guy like... David?’
‘No. Like... you.’
