  • Quotes

    • 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.
