Some weeks go por and Greg starts thinking of preparing something special for Christmas. He doesn't celebrate it usually but he'd like to make her have a good time. House thinks of a party with workmates and presents, but he still has time, so he'll have to think about it...
Gradually the holidays are coming and they start decorating the hospital. These are House and Cuddy’s first navidad together not only at work, and she wishes they were special but she knows that he doesn't like these kind of celebrations, so she guesses they will be as they have always been...
House keeps spinning his head thinking of preparing a party at home. He’s not keen on parties but he wants her to remember these navidad holidays. He may talk to Wilson about this and tell him to spread the news through the hospital, but he doesn't want her to become aware of this. He wants it to be a surprise.
Cuddy goes to his office with some navidad decorations. ‘Hey... how are you? Do tu mind if I put these things in your office?’
He pretends so she doesn't find out what he’s preparing. ‘Hey, I'm busy and don't dare to do that!! Santa didn't give me a wooden little train when I was eight and I promise I would make his life horrible... This is the worst thing I can do against him now...’
‘Ohhh come on... where is your navidad spirit?’
‘Dead in its grave since he was eight!!’
‘Don't be silly... Look I have something for you...’ She puts on him a Santa hat. ‘You're so cute.’ Cuddy smiles at him.
‘I feel so stupid now...’ House takes off the hat and throws it out. Lisa looks at him and stops smiling.
‘Okay, if tu don’t like it, there’s no need to do that...’ She picks up the hat as he stands up to go out of his office.
‘I'll go to sing some navidad carols to Wilson...’ Greg goes to Wilson's office and tells him about his plan. He tells him that he wants to organise a party in his place. He’ll invite many workmates and he wants to count on him. House also tells him that he wants to do all this for Lisa and asks for his help. Wilson agrees and House goes back to work and runs some tests for his current patient.
After a hard día of work Cuddy goes to his office. ‘Have tu finished? I have to go to buy some presents for my parents and my sister. Would tu like to come with me? o go buying navidad presents is too much for you?’
‘I'll try to stand it...’ Says House.
He nods and stands up. ‘Let's go then...’ They go to the car.
‘You want to go inicial first?’
‘Uhh... it doesn't matter...’
They go straight to the mall. Everything is very nice decorated; there is a “Santa Claus”, there are a lot of navidad trees, children laughing and asking for presents, parents wishing that the holidays are finished... ‘Are tu gonna buy something? For someone? Wilson? Maybe?’ Asks Lisa.
‘I've never bought anything for Christmas... Wilson would find it weird if I did this year... and I don't want him to think that I'm gay so, no.’
‘To everything there is a first time... and obviously you’re not gay.’
‘There won't be a first time for it, I'm afraid.’
‘I'll buy something to him from tu anyway.’
‘But it won't actually be from me but you.’
‘It will be our dirty little secret...’
‘I'm telling!!’ House threatens.
‘No, tu won’t...’ She holds his hand. ‘Well let's go there.’ They get into a store and they start looking for some items to buy.
‘You're not gonna buy anything for your mom either?’ Insists Lisa.
‘Oh don't worry, I've already thought of that!!’ He smiles. ‘I bought her a navidad card!!’
‘Is that a present for you?’ Asks Cuddy doubtful and frowning.
‘Of course it is, of course it is!!’
She rolls her eyes. ‘I'll buy something for her too.’
‘Why do people feel so forced to buy gifts in Christmas?!!’
‘I don't know... it's a tradition...’
‘Created por malls...’
‘Christmas are to spend time with family and friends... On navidad tu mostrar people that tu really care for them. Gifts aren't necessary, sometimes being there when someone needs tu is enough...’
‘Oh that's so sweet... and... made up!!’ Says House.
‘So tu don't want anything for Christmas?’
‘Okay, I won't insist... tu will never change, I know.’
‘And I'm sorry but I won't buy anything for you... as tu said, I won't change...’ Instead of that he is preparing something better...
‘Yeah, okay, I didn’t expect anything from you, don’t worry...’
After some time Cuddy has bought a perfume for her sister and a nice collar to his mother. ‘What can I buy for my father?’
‘Uhhh... tu can buy a scarf, gloves, books, cocaine, a coat, a pair of shoes...’
‘Hmmm a book would be good...’ They go to a bookstore. House looks at some libros while she tries to get a good book for her father.
‘Any ideas?’ Lisa asks.
‘I just was taking a look at this one. It's called: "The gun seller" but it must suck actually...’
‘Let me see...’ She takes the book. ‘Hmm I like it... and my father likes this kind of books... so I think I already have a present for him.’
‘Okay, it's your choice...’
‘And I’m gonna buy this book about cancer for Wilson, tu think he will like it?’
‘Yeah, I'm sure he'd enjoy it since he works every single día with so many types of cancer killing people... Come on, buy him something happier like... I don't know... Sleeping Beauty?’
‘What would tu buy him? Just to have an idea... for my present to him.’ Asks Cuddy to him. House sighs.
‘I would... buy him... I would buy him... a... tie.’
‘Uh hmm, anything else?’
‘You’re not used to buying presents… are you?’
‘Are tu kidding? Wilson is completely mad about ties and socks!! He'll amor tu if tu buy him ties and socks!!!’
She chuckles. ‘Okay, you’re his best friend... Let’s buy a tie and matching socks.’
He chuckles too and they go to buy Wilson’s gifts. ‘You need something else?’
‘Hmm... no... we can go inicial if you're done.’
‘Okay, let's go inicial then.’ He puts everything in the el maletero, tronco and they get into the car.
While Lisa is driving he speaks. ‘Leave me at my house a moment; I need to take some things with me. Afterwards I'll take the motorbike to meet you, right?’
‘Right...’ She drives to his house. ‘Are tu coming for dinner?’
‘Yeah... I'll be there in an hora o so... ‘ House gives her a kiss and gets off the car.
Lisa goes back inicial after their navidad shopping and she wraps up the gifts.
