Dr. Gregory House
Dr. Allison Cameron
Dr. Robert Chase
Dr. Lisa Cuddy
Dr. Eric Foreman
Dr. James Wilson
When Cuddy is overlooking the Baby ward at 14 minutes in, there is only one real baby, the rest are robots or bundles of blankets. Babies when first born kick a lot and the robots in the peripheral "cribs" aren't moving at all.
Emma takes photos of Dr. House in landscape format with a short lens, but the print shown was taken in portrait format with a long lens.
House says that he will travel to Argentina where the Mocovi Indians would carry him to the top of the Aconcagua. Well, the Aconcagua is in Mendoza and the Mocovies are in Santa Fe, Buenos Aires and Chaco, several hundreds of kilometers from the Aconcagua and any other mountain, hill or bump in the ground (these three provinces are plains, with lot of rivers and some forests, but no mountain). Also, the chance of finding pure non-integrated Mocovies, living in the traditional fashion, is very slim. Most of them are adapted to modern urban, suburban or country life.
Dr. Cameron: Transesophageal echo.
Dr. Chase: Can't access his esophagus.
Dr. Foreman: High resolution CT could give us a clearer...
Dr. Chase: Too much radiation for a one-pound person.
House: You can't just shoot everything down, Chase. You're not me. Collaborate.
Dr. Chase: A ventilation perfusion scan would be next.
House: How do we get a fetus to breathe in a radioactive isotope, idiot?
House: What would we do if this patient were not just a tadpole? Say it was an actual person.
Dr. Cuddy: He is a person.
House: Thanks for playing along.
(After Chase backs Cameron up)
House: Oh, look! Sticking up for your girlfriend. Who says chivalry is dead?
Foreman: (to Cameron) He's not joking?
House: Be patient. She's going through all of us. She'll get that jungle fever eventually.
(while looking a photography of Dr. House)
Dr. Foreman: This is definitely different.
Dr. Chase: It looks almost like...
Dr. Cameron: ...he is caring.
Cuddy (to House): Go away, and be happy.
Dr. Cuddy: The baby won't feel a thing.
House: Fetus! ... I'm lowering expectations. It works here and on dates.
House: We need another scan.
Dr. Foreman: Yeah, we can just ask the fetus to lie, very, very, still.
House: No need, I'm going to paralyze it.
Dr. Cameron: I've read that the outcome of Mirror Syndrome is almost always unfavorable.
House: "Unfavorable," is that doctor-speak for dead baby?
Dr. Chase: Did House say anything else? About us?
Dr. Cameron: Why do you care?
Dr. Chase: Because I like my job.
Dr. Cameron: He can't fire you because we're together...
Dr. Chase: We're not "together" and House can do whatever he wants.
Dr. Cameron: My social life is my social life!
House: Couldn't agree more. What goes on in the privacy of the janitor's closet is nobody's business.
Dr. Cuddy: Did you give cortical steroids to speed the baby's lung development?
House: No, I dropped an anvil on its chest to prevent lung development. I'm trying to extinguish the human race one fetus at a time.
House: My real patient is dying, very quickly, like, I wouldn't advise her to buy any green bananas.
Dr. Cuddy: If you're playing catch in the living room and you break your mother's vase, you may as well keep playing catch because the vase is already broken.
Dr. Cameron: Medicine doesn't work faster just because you hope real hard.
Dr. Foreman: We'll go look at her heart.
House: Easy to find it's the big, red pumping thing about 10 inches below her throat.
House: Mom's body is like an intricate German metro system. All the trains run on time.
House: So you take thousands of photos of someone, but only one has to look good. Kind of the opposite of my business.
Emma: (talking about her gay sperm donor) He took a magazine and a cup into my bathroom.
House: A man after my own heart. Different magazine.
House: I'm looking for a vacation spot.
Dr. Chase: That mean we get a vacation?
House: How would that differ from your current status?
Dr. Cuddy: You want to paralyze Emma Sloan's baby?
House: Let me guess, Cameron?
Dr. Cuddy: Cameron and Chase, both have their concerns.
House: No, Cameron had concerns, Chase just agreed with her because he didn't want to lose his all-access pass to her love rug.
Dr. Cuddy: They're sleeping together?
House: If by sleeping together you mean having sex in the janitor's closet.
Dr. Cuddy: Here?!
House: No, the janitor's closet at the local high school. Go Tigercats!
Dr. Cuddy: What are you doing?
House: Well, you're trying to be me, so I thought I'd try to be you.
Dr. Cuddy: You don't have the cleavage for it.
House: But I have a much tighter ass. Do you think every day should be "Naked Tuesday," or is that an oxymoron?
Dr. Cuddy: It's your file.
House: I don't want it.
Dr. Cuddy: So why'd you say all that stuff?
House: To humiliate you.
Dr. Cameron: Anybody going to stop (her)?
Dr. Chase: Stopping the madness is her job.
Dr. Foreman: Somebody's got to be Cuddy's Cuddy.
House: It's me again. Your friendly neighborhood belly-squirter.
House: I know you can't talk, so I need you to look petrified if you consent.
House: Case like this you terminate, Mom lives 10 times out of 10. You do what you did, mom and baby both die 9.9 times out of 10.
Dr. Cuddy: Sometimes .1 is bigger than 9.9.
House: No, it's smaller. Exactly 9.8 smaller. Always is, always will be.
Dr. Cuddy: Well not for Emma… and not for her son.
Dr. Cameron: I thought you started on vacation?
House: Someone had to save our boss's rotundous ass.
Dr. Cuddy: I have a whole new appreciation for what you do. How hard it is to believe when everyone around you is telling you you're wrong.
House: It helps to know they're idiots.
Dr. Cuddy: Do you think I'm an idiot?
House: You're not objective… but you're not an idiot.
House: (about vacationing in the Galapagos) Visiting family. My uncle's a giant turtle.
House: Even fetuses lie.
Dr. Cameron: You're insane.
House: I'm an insane genius.
Injoke: When trying to book a plane, House exclaims that he does not want a layover then lists several cities as examples, the last of which is London, Ontario. Series creator David Shore is from London, Ontario.

The fetus hanging outside of its mother's opened chest closely resembles scenes of the "chest-bursters" from the Alien film franchise.
