Dr. Gregory House
Dr. Allison Cameron
Dr. Robert Chase
Dr. Lisa Cuddy
Dr. Eric Foreman
Dr. James Wilson
When the entire team is in the men's room waiting for House, he takes his cane before washing his hands. It is noticeable that he washes them carefully and dries them after, but if he takes his cane back, it will be as infected as if he didn't wash his hands at all. He could have left the cane, wash and dry his hands and take the cane at the end, it would be a cleaner act for a doctor of that calibre.
House searches for something in his wooden box, and when he finds it there is a close up on his fingers holding the bottle. It is clearly seen that it's not his fingers. They are too short and without wrinkles.
At the end of the episode when House driving home on his Honda, we catch a glimpse of the person who is on the bike, it's not House (Hugh Laurie). It's a guy with no beard and seems to be younger than Hugh Laurie.
Trivia: The shows on House's DVR include: The O.C., two episodes of SpongeBob Squarepants, Monster Truck Jam, eight episodes of The New Yankee Workshop, The Black Adder (see Notes), two more of The O.C., and one more SpongeBob.
When House checks the answering machine at the end, it says "One new message," but the counter reads "02." He might have been saving one earlier message...but then why erase that too if he wanted to save it? Pretty much all answering machines these days let you delete messages selectively.
Dr. Wilson: My wife fired the maid. Apparently she's getting rid of everything that reminds her of me.
House: You did your maid?
Dr. Wilson: I was nice to our maid. Which annoyed her...god knows why.
House: Maybe she was doing her.
Dr. Wilson: No one was doing her! All right?
Dr. Foreman: I thought you didn't believe that was anything wrong with his throat.
House: Never said I didn't believe it. I just said I had a good reason to doubt it.
Dr. Foreman: And now?
House: Now I have a good reason to doubt those doubts.
Dr. Cameron: He's gonna need a lung transplant.
House: He's becoming more attractive by the minute, isn't he?
Dr. Cameron: You're pleased. You think you've proved every marriage is a mistake.
House: Do I look pleased?
House: He's choking on his tongue, not his feet.
Dr. Chase: (about the couple's threesome) Another guy, or girl?
Dr. Cameron: Girl. His wife's college roommate.
Dr. Chase: If he's not happily married, I don't know who could be.
Dr. Chase: (about House) He didn't get his beauty sleep. Wilson's moved in and apparently has unusually loud toenails.
Dr. Wilson: You're kicking me out? After one night?
House: Why, you think we should try counseling first?
House: Is the ant big and red or small and black?
Dr. Foreman: Medium and brown
House: Halle Berry brown or Beyonce brown?
Dr. Cameron: Is there a difference?
House: (sarcastically) Is there a difference?
Dr. Wilson: I was watching something.
House: No, you were about to watch something. I'm watching something. See the difference?
Dr. Wilson: Now why do you have a season pass to the New Yankee Workshop?
House: It's a complete moron working with power tools. How much more suspenseful can you get?
House: Chase, find out what the resort cooks with, if they repainted recently, or did any plumbing repairs.
Dr. Chase: I don't speak Spanish.
House: Then it'll be challenging.
Dr. Cameron: If you ask me, if two people really trust each other, a threesome once every seven years might actually help a marriage.
House: Okay, I say we stop the DDX and discuss that comment.
Dr. Cameron: What was I supposed to do, tie her up?
House: Why not – she likes that.
Charlotte: I am not having an affair with my daughter's karate instructor, and I did not give my husband herpes.
Dr. Cuddy: Find out where House is…
House: A sex fiend with a swollen tongue. Just think of all the places I can make Foreman search.
House: Good Lord, what is that smell?
Dr. Wilson: Stuffed pepper.
House: Stuffed with what? Vomit?
Dr. Wilson: (to House) I'll be out of your hair tomorrow…what's left of it.
Vincent: The only person I've had sex with is my wife.
Dr. Cuddy: (about House) He'd give his own mother herpes if it got him out of clinic duty.
Dr. Wilson: Don't you ever eat anything besides canned soup and peanut butter?
House: Don't you ever eat anything that doesn't look like it's been rolled onto your plate by a dung beetle?
House: You blow dry your hair?
Dr. Wilson: Oh, sorry, did I wake you up?
House: (louder) You blow dry your hair?!?
Wilson: Oh, sorry for caring how I look like.
House: I think the word you're looking for is "obsessing."

When sleeping on the couch, Wilson's shirt displays the logo of McGill University, one of the world's top research universities located in Montreal, Quebec.
Dr. Wilson: Let's see - I'm thinking Col. Mustard in the music room with the candlestick.
Referring to the popular board game Clue from Parker Brothers, where the players try to determine the suspect, the location, and the murder weapon.
House: Forget the seventy-two virgins--if I blow myself up in a crowded restaurant, I'm going to be asking for a plate of these babies.
House alludes to the commonly-held perception that the Qu'ran states that "hur" (typically translated as virgins) will greet Muslims arriving in Heaven, including those who martyr themselves while fighting infidels. Many scholars believe that 72 is the specific number of virgins.
House: For Miyagi.
Referencing the karate sensei Mr. Miyagi, from the Karate Kid movies and as played by Pat Morita.
