Summary: Drunk dialing, House-style.
“Hey, little lady. Want to see my Monster Truck? And no, that’s not a euphemism.”
The “drawl” is pathetic, marred by drunken slurring. He’s been making these calls for years. No matter how many times she changes numbers, he finds her.
Maybe she should be more sympathetic. He did save Abby’s life. Her beautiful daughter is now in college with an eye toward medical school. She fondly remembers the one-night stand with which she and House celebrated Abby’s recovery.
On the other hand, House is a self-destructive bastard and Maddy needs to protect herself.
She hangs up without a word.
