  • I loved this story. Father works hard for his son to achieve only to accidentally poison him and a friend later.

    • Dr. Wilson: We're discussing your new patient. House: Must be a boring discussion, considering that I haven’t accepted a new patient.

    • House: You lie to your mother? Dr. Cuddy: Only since I was twelve!

    • House: (hearing serious news about patient on phone) Check it again. I'll be right there. Dr. Cuddy: What happened? House: Apparently I can save money by switching to another long-distance carrier.

    • Dr. Cameron: (talking about House) Why does he hate seeing his parents? So his dad tells the truth, he can't handle that? Dr. Wilson: He hates being a disappointment. Dr. Cameron: He's a doctor, world-famous! How disappointed can they be? Dr. Wilson: You know what I figure is worse than watching your son become crippled? Watching him be miserable.

    • House: You - intravenous broad spectrum antibiotics. You - get cervical, thoracic, and lumbar T2 weighted fast spin echo MRIs. And you - track down all the other Richie Riches who went to Jamaica. See if any of them have the shocks, the trots, or the hots.
