  • Quotes (26)

    • (answering phone) House: This better be important. Dr. Cameron: You've gotta come back in. House: No I don't. Dr. Cameron: Margo's stable but... House: Oh my God! I'll be right there!

    • House: We're done. Get rid of her. Dr. Foreman: We're not done. We have to confirm the diagnosis before we send her home to die of something else. House: Oh yes, the power tastes so sweet. You just can't resist, you're like a diabetic at the ice cream counter, you want to say no, but you need that chocolately goodness. Dr. Foreman: Well, I’m still signing the charts. So until tomorrow you’re not allowed to kill anyone. House: Wuss!

    • House: She's not going to leave Mark in the middle of his rehab. Too much guilt. Dr. Wilson: She left you. House: Harsh 'tude, dude.

    • House: Peeing on a stick is only 99% accurate. Get a real pregnancy test. You know, the one with the blood and the hormones and the rabbit. (Foreman looks put off) Oh, I'm sorry. It's still your limo. What do you say, Miss Daisy? Dr. Foreman: Whatever you want. House: Lame duck's done quacking. Dr. Foreman: You quack, people shoot at you. Cuddy just put me here to make you miserable. Another two days, you can go back to making yourself miserable.

    • (finding Ritalin) House: Cocaine with a PG rating.

    Trivia (3)

    • Early on, when reviewing the patient details, House notes that someone used up the last of the animal crackers and set the empty box right back on the counter, then complains to all that "if you use them all up, throw the box away" with the box in his hand. There is a sound that might be intended as the box getting thrown away (although no such act is shown). In the next scene, the box is right back where it originally was.

    • In season one Mark told House that Stacy never wears any jewelry other than the cross her mom gave her. However, in this episode she is wearing earrings.

    • Trivia: When Foreman is going through a pile of DVDs at Margo's house, one of them show the cover of Winning London, an Olsen Twins movie which Jesse Spencer (Dr. Chase) co-starred in.

    Allusions (3)

    • Dr. Cameron: Momma's little helper. "Mother's Little Helper" is a song by the Rolling Stones (released in 1966) dealing with the issue of mothers taking prescription drugs to be able to manage their day. It is about the hypocrisy of the "look the other way" attitude about such drug abuse in the upper and middle class, at a time when society looked very down on abuse of so-called "illegal drugs". The song is titled after the existing terminology, not the other way around.

    • House: (to Foreman) Oh, I'm sorry! It's still your limo. What do you say, Miss Daisy? Refers to Driving Miss Daisy (1989), the movie starring Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy. Freeman was hired by Tandy's son, Dan Aykroyd, to drive his elderly mother around Atlanta in the late 50s. It told the story of their 20-year friendship through the chauffeur's point of view. Directed by Bruce Beresford.

    • House: It explains the psychosis and the flailing, and the uncanny ability to bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never, ever let Teddy forget that he's a man. House draws a comment about Margo's active life -- substituting 'Teddy' for 'him', and adding 'ever' -- from a series of ads for Enjoli perfume from the late 1970s. A gorgeous female executive could "do it all" with just a little help from the fragrance, or so it was claimed.
