  • House is back and Wilson deals with the death of Amber. Everything you'd want in a House episode...a lot of Thirteen as well but I don't think that's a bad thing.

    • (after House has overridden their diagnosis with the correct diagnosis) Thirteen: Damn. Lou: What? Taub: She's happy you're going to be fine... but she'd be happier if you were going to be fine five minutes ago.

    • House: Either she cracked under the whip or she started to realize that her evolutionary purpose is to arouse men, not to castrate them.

    • (Cuddy leads the team while House is gone) Taub: What do you want us to do? Dr. Cuddy: The same thing you do if he was here. Taub: If he was here we’d be asking him what to do.

    • House: People get what they get. It has nothing to do with what they deserve.

    • Patient: (asking about Cameron and House) The two of you use to be together? House: (referring to the patient's obesity) She dumped me when I lost the last 85 pounds.
