    House's Series Finale: Cancer's Boring

    House ended like so many TV series do: bittersweetly, with a few great nods to past seasons, some inevitable cheesiness, and a comforting sense of closure.

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Trivia: The song that plays at the end of this episode, "Enjoy Yourself", is the same song that Amber sang to House in the episode "Under My Skin", during the first time he was hallucinating.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Dr. Adams: You took a new case?
        Dr. Park: You ran tests yourself?
        House: I saw the chance to help someone in need and I instinctively... oh no, wait, that was someone else's instinct.

      • Dr. Foreman: You're asking me to perjure myself.
        House: Tiny white lie. No offense. Especially since, from what I hear, nothing black is tiny. Except your penis, I guess.

      • Dr. Wilson: (about House) You think he could've done something stupid?
        Dr. Foreman: I think stupid is our best-case scenario.

      • House: Isn't this just an incredibly simple calculation? I''m going to jail, losing my job, losing my best friend. Do I need more?
        Kutner: You think that's the sum total of who you are? A doctor? A friend to Wilson?
        House: I'm also a tremendous baritone.

      • Stacy: Wilson's right. He's always right. he's always been your good side.
        House: I always wondered why I photographed so poorly.

      • Dr. Wilson: He was my friend. The thing you have to... remember... the thing you can't forget is that Gregory House saved lives. He was a healer. And-and in the end… House was an ass. He mocked anyone-patients, co-workers, his dwindling friends-anyone who didn't measure up to his insane ideals of integrity. He claimed to be on some heroic quest for truth, but the truth is, he was a bitter jerk who liked making people miserable. And he proved that by dying selfishly, numbed by narcotics, without a thought of anyone. A betrayal of everyone who cared about him.

      • Dr. Wilson: When the cancer starts getting really bad...
        House: Cancer's boring.
