  • Trivia

    • When House is making a soda balloon while talking to Chase, he fills a purple balloon then puts the soda bottle on the table. He turns and talks while tying off the purple balloon. The camera changes angles and the balloon is now orange and the soda bottle is back in House's hand.

  • Quotes

    • House: If she likes crippled guys, I'm free for the next six minutes.

    • Dr. Chase: I was a seminarian.
      Moira: Who obviously didn't take his vows.
      Dr. Chase: Cassock made my ass look fat.

    • Dr. Chase: The self-defense classes, you think they're making any kind of difference?
      Dr. Taub: Not as much as House's surprise attacks. He thinks three steps ahead, so I do too. Which is why you should accept his apology and come back on the team. He's annoying, he's maddening. But he makes us all better.

    • Dr. Adams: Three weeks ago, you never would have slept with a patient. And you never would have operated on her after. You need help.
      Dr. Chase: I need to get away from House and everything that reminds me of him.
      Dr. Adams: By breaking the rules, not caring what anyone else thinks. You're gonna get away from him by turning into him?

    • Dr. Chase: This has nothing to do with the truth. You don't like that I'm reassessing my life. That I want to change it. That I can.
      House: Anyone can screw up a life. I never said that wasn't possible.
      Dr. Chase: You're incapable of human connection so you want everyone to be like you.
      House: If I wanted you to be like me, I would be urging you to make a stupid, stubborn decision that blows up your life and leaves you lonely and miserable. You reassess your life when you make mistakes. You didn't. You just got stabbed.
