After washing and dressing, they arrive to the Coliseum. It's a sunny and very hot day. They put on their sunglasses and buy two ice creams to get a bit cooler. Then, they go for a walk around the building and come in. It’s still very hot and the ice cream helps just a little. They sit down in the shade to rest for a while. House takes off his glasses and lean his cane on the wall. ‘It’s so hot today!’
‘Yes, very very hot... I have a bit of headache because of the heat.’
‘Let’s stay here until anda feel better.’
‘Yeah, thank you.’ She looks at the ice cream left. ‘I would put the ice cream all over my body, but then I’ll be sticky...’
House stares at her with his eyes wide opened. ‘What stops you?? DO IT!’
‘It's terribly hot but I'm not gonna do that! My body would have strawberi taste the rest of the day.’
She chuckles. ‘House! Oh God, you’ve slept very little...’
Some time later Cuddy feels a little better and they stand up to continue their visit to the Coliseum, but suddenly she starts feeling sick again. ‘Hey, anda okay? anda look a bit strange.’
‘No... I don’t feel very good...’ She is sweating and gasping for breath. Fortunately, House holds her before she falls down. He rests his cane in a wall, picks her up in his arms and goes limping to a fountain. There he starts wetting her hands and her neck with cool water. ‘Hey! Come on, wake up.’ Cuddy stars opening her eyes confused and pale. ‘Don’t move.’ House goes limping and comes back with a bottle of water. ‘Here, drink. With small sips.’
Cuddy sips and sits up holding his hand. ‘Thank you... What happened?’
‘You fainted. We should go to the hotel. anda must rest.’
‘Okay... it might be better. It’s very hot here.’
‘Don’t stand up yet.’ House makes a phone call and a taxi comes to pick them up. ‘Thanks Greg.’ He doesn’t answer.
The taxi comes and takes them to the hotel. When they get there, they pay the driver and go walking slowly to their room. Cuddy unfastens a little her baju because of the heat and lie on katil switching on the air conditioning.
‘God, this heat is unbearable! anda should have a cool shower.’ Suggests House.
‘Yes... actualy anda should too. You’re sweating.’
‘Well, there are two people, one bathroom...’ House winks at her kidding, but he didn’t expect her following his game.
‘So... are anda coming to the shower?’ She stands up and goes to the bathroom’s door while he looks at her surprised.
‘Are anda serious?’
Cuddy nods. ‘Okay, okay, anda don’t want... I get it.’
‘The heat has affected to anda rational part of your brain. Are anda hormons talking for you??’
‘I just thought that after twenty years anda were going to seize your chance. I was wrong.’ She gets into the bathroom and House follows her, stopping the door and looking serious at her.
‘If it's mutual anda can't accuse me in front of a judge and, you're inviting me right now!’
‘I can lapor anda of harassment if that makes anda happy.’
‘Jail? No, thanks...’ House is still holding the door and she looks at him.
‘So... I feel so dirty and sweaty!!’ House undoes his baju and Cuddy looks at him surprised. She didn’t expect him following the game so far.
‘Are yoy gonna... come in?’
‘Yes... No... I’m gonna...’
‘You’re gonna what?’
‘I’m gonna come in.’
‘O-okay.’ Cuddy opens the door and moves to let him come in. “If he wants to play, let’s play.” House starts taking his shoes off.
‘And... why have anda thought about this right now?’
‘Do I need to have a reason for everything?’ Cuddy takes off her heels and unfastens her shirt. House tries to look at the wall.
‘W-well, I guess anda don’t.’ He takes off his baju and leaves it on the floor while she takes off hers and throws it to House’s face.
‘And why have anda come in?’
House takes Cuddy’s baju out of his face. ‘Because my parents taught me that rejecting invitations is a very impolite thing... I’m such a good boy.’
Cuddy smiles and turns her back to him. ‘Would anda mind lending me a hand with my bra?’ House, atonished, nods. Before he unfastens it, Cuddy takes the pancuran, pancuran mandian rose and splashes him and both get wet. ‘You really thought that I would have a pancuran, pancuran mandian with anda completely naked?’
‘Shower?? No. I just was following your game. I'm surprised you've gone so far!!’
Cuddy looks at him surprised. ‘You wanted to go so far?’
‘I just was trying anda out. I wanted to see how far anda wanted to go.’
‘Then I'll rephrase the question: anda wanted me to go further?’
‘I knew anda weren't going to go so far...’
She mocks at him. ‘Well... It wouldn't be the first time’
‘The first time that I remember yes!!’
‘Well... don't lose your hope. Try again later.’ She winks. ‘And now... I would like to have a shower, so if anda don’t mind...’ She looks at the door and moves her head marking it off. ‘You can have your cold pancuran, pancuran mandian later. anda need it.’
House smiles. ‘Enjoy your pancuran, pancuran mandian wicked woman!!’
Cuddy has her pancuran, pancuran mandian and some minit later goes out of the bathroom drying her hair with a towel. ‘Even now I’m hot.’
‘Oh, come on, don’t get randy just because I’m here.’
‘Hmm yes... I have the hots for you.’
House gets into the bathroom and jawapan her from there. ‘I’ve always known that!!’
‘I was kidding!! I’ve never berkata that!’
‘Maybe anda did the night that I don’t remember.’
‘Yeah... but you’ll never know’
House has his pancuran, pancuran mandian and when he goes out Lisa stares at him thinking about what almost happens in the bathroom. He looks behind him. ‘What?’
‘N-Nothing. We can take a stroll around the hotel until it gets cold outside.’
