David Shore: (explaining why the new direction was chosen for the fourth season of House to Los Angeles Times - September 23, 2007) Rather than, "Oh my God, oh my God, we've run out of stuff, it's starting to get boring, it's starting to get dull, we've got to change something, what are we going to change?," we changed it based on our own agenda. Let's try it now while the show is still working very well. We're just expanding the world. The show is not different. It's just growing a little bit.
