  • Trivia

    • House says to Taub that hitting him with the helicopter is a negative reinforcement. It is in fact a positive punishment.

  • Quotes

    • Dr. Wilson: You're trying to screw with Cuddy.
      House: Yeah, it's the classic "You dumped me, so I'm gonna get married a week later" ruse. 'Cause not only is she that stupid, but apparently I'm that stupid.
      Dr. Wilson: Then what, you're openly mocking marriage... trying to prove it means nothing?
      House: It doesn't. But you proved that yourself years ago.

    • Masters: Think House is coming in today?
      Dr. Foreman: Maybe if we start offering spa treatments.
      Masters: He already jumped off of a hotel balcony. Who knows what he'll do next?
      Dr. Chase: Ride some kind of prostitute chariot to work?

    • House: She wanted me to bribe you, like they do back in the old country. Tell her what I said.
      Dominika: This is America--the land of the home and the free of the braves.
      House: Yeah, I just get teary-eyed every time I hear her say that.

    • Dominika: In your head!
      House: It's "face."
      Dominika: On your face!
      House: Close enough.

    • House: Hiding your identity--well, either you're a criminal or a superhero.
      Danny: I'm not a criminal.
      House: Awesome. What color is my underwear?

    • Dr. Wilson: (to Cuddy) Appeasement is never the answer in the face of naked aggression. It won't be long before his tanks are rolling down your Champs-Élysées.
