So...this is it. The “Bitch Tapes” grand finale. The last gasp at the underpass. Now the question is, after thirteen weeks of speculations and accusations, do we get anything resembling a satisfactory resolution? It all depends on how you look at things.
Last week, Jeffrey made a deal with Drew the Maintenance Man to let him tag along while Drew cleaned House’s office. The catch was, Jeffrey would only get a minute to search the hallowed ground for something to incriminate the great man. One minute can be a long time if you use it productively. But when you’re sifting through House’s trash, finding a strange little drawing with Chase and Foreman’s names written in a heart, and another with a space babe riding a rocket ship, you’re not using your time effectively.
Realizing this, Jeffrey asks Drew to jimmy open House’s desk but he refuses, announcing there are only forty seconds remaining of that quickly dissipating minute.
An extra hundred bucks is offered by Jeffrey to sweeten the deal. Unfortunately, this is when things begin to unravel. Just as Jeffrey finds a morphine vial hidden under House’s blotter, Cuddy walks in. To say that Jeffrey is totally busted is an understatement. Cuddy is livid, demanding to know why Jeffrey is in House’s office. When she finds his answer unsatisfactory, she tells him to meet her in HR.
After presenting his case to HR, Jeffrey’s dream is shattered. He is the one who is punished, given a six week suspension without pay.
It was a hard fight, Nurse Jeffrey, and no one can accuse you of not trying. You stuck to your principles. True, you fought a little dirty at times, but that was understandable. Heck, look who you were up against.
