    House wears $100 vintage band T shirts, loose button shirt, blazer, jeans faded around the knee area, sneakers, and his wooden cane (wooden, vertical stripe that makes it look slimmer)

    There was a line in ''Humpty-Dumpty" about House and Stasy met in a strip joint ,but I think ,it was a jock,although,who knows,maybe she did buy him a drink(how else she could spent two dollars "on him'') after paintball tornament?

    He was thrown out some program in Hopkins after chiting on P.Weber(could it be math exam?there was ''math skills" mentioned).

    He was fired by four hospital administrators(four different hospitals,I suppose) before Cuddy hired him 6(8???where was a contradiction on this matter in writing) years ago(in thirst season).

    Please,forgive me spelling mistakes,I am abroad and nothing works properly in this damn country,even spelling checking program on TV.com!At least I can read the board and maybe send this misspeld message.



    When do they say that he was hired 6/8 years ago?
    I am confused, in the scenes in the hospital in the "three stories" episode it does not seems that he is working in the hospital, it just seems that he goes there to be treated.

    House is da man. He always suspected it. "Three assistants and fifteen VPs checked out who should be treating her. Who da man? I da man"

    He is the first to notice that Vogler didn't bring all that money for the hospital for nothing. he thinks that he'll end up using the patients as guinea pigs. He thinks that's unethical.

    He has no problem lieing to the transplant committee and risk his medical licenese on behalf of his bulimic patient, as long as she assures him she doesn't want to die.

    (Control)

    He had prescribed Viagra to a 62 yrs female. "The woman has a heart condition and she’s on her own. A man can't nail his office assistant, its national crisis time." If the Medicaid guy doesn't agree to cover the expense, he agrees to pay for it himself.

    He doesn't have call waiting on his cell phone and he "doesn't know they recharge. He keeps buying new ones"...

    He can identify people's illnesses merely by watching their behavior: "the cashier at the coffee place, she doesn't want anybody to know she's dying of ALS. There's a particular sort of twitchy stiff arm that’s characteristic."

    He thinks he can take on the security guy, "'cause he kicks and he bites. "

    Anomalies bug him.

    He reads "Lesbian prison sotries" :

    (Failure to Communicate)

    It's all speculation. They didn't actually say he was working there at the time. It just that when you do the math, it fits:

    On Pilot Cuddy says: "You’re 6 years behind on your obligation to this clinic". We know his surgery was done 5 years before the Pilot episode, ergo he was working there at least 1 year before the surgery.

    Vogler (I,unfortunately,can't check in which ep. exactly,but ,I think in "Mob rules") told Cuddy , revising House's department budget that House has been in PPTH for 8 years.I'm,usually,prefer exact quoting,but can't do it till Monday.And,thats right,in "Tree stories" in doesn't feels like he is working in the hospital and Cuddy mentioned" 6 years" at least twice,so I think there is a contradiction.

    I don't see it as a contradiction, but rather as something House did on purpose when he told the students about the case (The "golfer", who was first Carmen Electra, then an average guy, the a "drug seeking patient") on Three Stories.

    I think he didn't want to give them that info about the patient (himself) because he wanted them to think about the patient without any preassumptions. He wanted the students to put their mind son the diagnosis - not about the fact the patient is a doctor.  And even with that, he questioned anyone's ability to treat any patient without any preassumptions:

    House: Would you operate on your mother?

    Student: Of course not. I’d be too nervous; couldn’t be objective.

    House: Then why are you so anxious to treat every patient like they’re family? Here’s what happens when doctors care to much.

    And then he goes to show that the patient the doctors thought was seeking drugs was in fact sick. That showed them that the opposite is just as wrong.

    No wonder the lecture hall, that was almost epmpty when the lecture started, was completely full towards the end.

    So we got one more thing to add to House's bio - he gives great lectures!

    I'm absolutely agree about House misleading students in "Three stories".He would say "it fits".But what I meant as contradiction, is that for how long House has been working in PPTH ?Vogler said 8 years and Cuddy mentioned 6(the fact that I'm unable to use exact quotes when and where they've told that is driving me crazy!I definitely have to make a post about it on Monday,when I'll be back to my source,even if nobody will be interested in that information by when.)P.S.I think,House is a great teacher(I love the way he works with Duclings and ,by now we know, they appreciate him too) and could do absolutely unforgettable lectures.

    Here it is - From Mob Rules
    Vogler to Cuddy: He makes you miserable. Eight years he’s worked here, never made a dime for you, never listened to you.

    So Cuddy said on Pilot he worked there 6 years and Vogler shows up about 15 eps later, towards the end of season 1 and says House worked there for 8 years - that's not that huge of a gap after all. Maybe Cuddy rounded it down a bit, Vogler raised it up a bit and there you go.

    As for him being a great teacher - I absolutely agree. He encourages them to question him and would do the same to them.

    HOUSE: How are you gonna learn to swim unless I take off your floaties and throw you into shark-infested waters? (Whac-a-mole)

    Right! It reminded me that (can't remember on which ep) he also said once "the little ones call me uncle Greg"....

    and also, when he spoke with Cuddy on Ali, the teenager who had a crush on him, he said:  "It was a medical exam. I was listening to her heart; it went "Greg House, Greg House, Greg House".

    Dear Doarpr,thank's for the Vogler quote,I was close to became a patient of the PPTH's psych-ward.LOL

    House always advocates for his patient.("Sex kills")He would risk his license and lie to the Transplant Comete for a woman the barely know ,if he believes it's right.("Control")He is not only genius diagnostician,he is "God given doctor" for those who were fortunate to became his patient.

    Despite "read less,more TV'' his home full of books and magazines.

    He's great with kids.They trust him,because he's honest and treats them as equals.

    It takes one (House addict) to know one.... Glad I was able to keep you out of the psych ward!!

    And if we're talking about psychs, shrinks and kids -

    Cuddy thinks House sees an epidemic because "plain old sick babies bore him".
    House says that's exactly why he doesn't waste money on shrinks, ‘cause Cuddy gives him all these really great insights for free.
    Cuddy says if he would consider going to a shrink, She would pay for it herself and "The hospital would hold a bake sale, for God’s sake!"

    House thinks most successful marriages are based on lies.

    He likes to sneak into the OB/GYN doctors lounge - they have HD tv and much more comfortable chairs. He even agrees to perform a delivery - 5 months from now - in order to qulaify to use the lounge.   (Maternity)

    House does seem being skeptical about marriage.That brings out a question "why he and Stacy weren't married?''.They were about 35 when they met,she moved in with House after after only a week of ''dating''(and ,I guess, it was House who was "pushing" the relationships,since she was reluctant even to see him again after their thirst date),they had been together for 5 years and as far as we can see in the "Tree Stories" House really loved her(not sure she loved him as much though).Sure ,maybe writers thought if the "wife " left House instead of a "girlfriend" he would look pathetic and it's not right? He can be miserable ,but not pathetic.But still,in House's and Stacy's point of view why they didn't get married?Any theories?

    I think House just couldn't care less about the official marriage certificate and/or ceremony. He's just no the type to be bothered with that. He loved Stacy, she loved him, they lived together - end of story as much as he's concerned. I think the same goes for Stacy, who didn't think being married to Mark made a difference once she decided she wanted to go back to House. I think they were both so secure in their relationship that the actual ceremony meant nothing to both. They made sure she was his proxy and he probably was hers, so from the legal point of view it made no difference.

    I'm not sure Stacy loved House less then he did love her - she said he was the one who pushed her away. She did say he was "the one" and would always be but unlike him, she's much more pragmatic and she also knew House - once he had decided he didn't want her in his life, there wasnt much she could have done, so she decided to go on with her life.

    It's interesting though she chose Mark, who is basically quite the opposite of House - he's the average nice guy, who does care about social labeling and have the official stamp on the relationship and that's why she married him. She told House she was back at work the day after they were married - they didn't go on a honymoon and didnt make much of it because of her job - which is another indication that the ceremony wasn't so important to her.

    House acknowleged the fact Mark was willing to do whatever it takes to have Stacy, and that as much as he loved her, he couldn't do the same, because it's just not who he is.

    Reasonable explanation,I have to say,at least for House formality have never meant anything.Maybe it was slightly different for Stacy(not the ceremony part,she clearly not the "bridezilla" type,but social status,still has some value ,even in the modern USA) - she got married in two years after leaving House and that moment in the "Three Stories", when she asks House did he thought she's never going to get married,make me think she wasn't as can't -care-less-what-people- think as House is,just came along with him.As  for love...She left him and when Wilson told her he was "picking up the pieces" and that House ''has been pining for five years '' coudn't believe him ''you are being dramatic''.She lived with the guy for five years and didn't no what she meant to him !I know ,House is a reserved kind of a person,but he was "opened" with her acc. to Wilson.Maybe she always new on some level she needed "someone else" ,the leg accident and House's rage afterword , just gave her an excuse to leave him.Those thoughts make me think that House loved and Stacy...well, loved to be loved.

    Interesting way of looking at it. I really didn't remember her saying that to Wilson.

    With that in mind, I'm now thinking that maybe House also didn't realise how much he meant to her. When she told him he was "the one", he seemed surprised, then tried to rationalize it like he always does when feelings are involved. He also kept saying to Wilson that he didn't really want her back, he only wanted her to admit she had feelings for him. No doubt there was also a stong sense of competion with Mark - House can be pretty competative when he puts his mind to it.

    On the whole, they led a pretty busy life before his surgery - both were active professionals who did a lot of outdoor recreational stuff together (golfing to name but one) and it looks like they were fairly socially active (he mentions their mutual friends on The honeymoon), so I guess both of them maybe didn't even realise at the time how good the relationship actually was. All both of them could see after his surgery was how miserable they made each other (Hunting) - enough for them to ignore the good parts in the relationship.

    I think you are right about Stacy's attitude - "she loves to be loved" - she does need more attention then he does, and House is not the "lets talk about our feelings" kind of guy, while Mark is. But once she sees House again, she realizes that although Mark is a good guy, he can never give her the same exciting moments and challanges House can and she fooled herself into believing it's going to be different this time around. But House was right - the situation has changed and they can't just forget about the last 5 years and start again like nohting happened.

    I think I'm getting too deep in this, I need to lighten up a bit again!!!

    I like your deep posts about House.  They show a depth and humaneness about his character, and they always make me think. (Deep, dark thoughts... no, I'm kidding!!)  They just give me a better understanding of his character, and generally, of all the characters that surround him.

    Keep them coming (if you will).  I also welcome 'more cool fun facts about House'... 

    Thanks much!!

    The conversation between Wilson and Stacy took place in "Need to know" when he came to her office.

    Thank you,for making a hint "let it go,already" so subtle.I mean it.

    It's getting hard to fined thing's not mentioned already,especially without "my source".Hey,memory,rise and shine,please.LOL

    House isn't neat freak,and being used to live along doesn't like his stuff to be moved ,but can be gratefully for house cleaning ("Clueless").

    House is a "night owl"("Sleeping Dogs Lie"),he likes his "beauty sleep" in the morning,that makes him come to work late(usually).The buzzer on his clock is set on 9.19(Which must be means something,can't figure out what).We happened to see him sleeping at work at least three times.

    House has already met Wilson's father,brother(one of two)("Histories") and his last wife,who didn't like House .If the spoilers are correct he is going to "stalk" some other wife of Wilson (two of three).

    House is not fond of a human race,but he's not judgemental.His motto used to be "Live and let others to live",can't remember what he said is present ...Foreman thinks it's "Grab whatever you want",because House is an anarchist("Deception")

    House knows a lot about "modern psych crap"(''Acceptance").I thin he's been reading a lot in that matter ,because he likes to manipulate people and it took him only two minutes to catch Cameron using manipulating techniques on Chase and Foreman.Again,can't remember in which ep.exactly!

    House is not good at "let it go"("Failure to communicate").He took his revenge out of Weber after 20 years("Distractions"). and felt an obligation ''to pay his debt'' to Crandall in 27.That quality,I think,is connected with House's "never give up".
