  • Quotes (11)

    • House: The principle is she's being irrational. If I give in on this, it sets the stage for the whole relationship. Dr. Wilson: Putting up with irrationality is the foundation of every relationship.

    • (to the new fellow) House: What's your position on legality of illegal break-ins? Dr. Chase: That's more of a second-week type activity.

    • Dr. Chase: Oh, and she's not like Cameron. House: True. Cameron had much smaller breasts. By which I mean she was smarter.

    • Dr. Wilson: How are things going with Cuddy? House: Great. We've gotten to fifth base. That's two home runs, and then she gives me back a triple.

    • Dr. Wilson: You really like these, or are you just avoiding a touchy conversation? House: Nah. This one's too metrosexual. This one's too heterosexual. Dr. Wilson: They're identical. Do you even want my input? House: No. Dr. Wilson: Then why'd you invite me? House: Who'd drive my car home if I buy a bike?

    • House: Easy Rider auditions ended four decades ago. Referencing the 1969 counterculture movie where two hippie bikers, Wyatt and Billy, travel the U.S on their motorcycles looking for freedom. Wyatt's motorcycle has a gas tank decorated like an American flag, like the one that House looks at.

    • House: Dorothy, dear... it's Auntie Em. Referencing the famous book series, The Wizard Of Oz, created by Frank L. Baum, that was made into a movie in 1939. In the novel and subsequent movie, Dorothy Gale is literally blown from Kansas to Oz by a tornado. Aunt "Em" (short for Emily) is Dorothy's aunt.
