  • Trivia

    • Trivia: At the beginning of the episode, in the boy's room, we can see, among all of his posters, a black and white one. That picture is from a famous Italian comic book called Diabolik. The dialogue in that poster is not even translated, it's in Italian.

  • Quotes

    • Dr. Foreman: Notice anything odd about the shape of the fluid collection?
      House: Oh, God, it's... the Virgin Mary.

    • Driver: What, you think I'm gonna rob the place?
      Thirteen: No, of course not.
      Driver: In case you haven't noticed, I have a job.
      Thirteen: You're either honest or dishonest. I figured the safer choice is...
      Driver: To treat a total stranger like an ass. Nice way to live your life. Bitch.

    • Thirteen: Stay out of my life.
      House: Okay.
      Thirteen: I know you canceled my reservation. You obviously saw me log on when you were spying on me at the coffee shop.
      House: I was talking to you. I was spying on the MILF in the running shorts.

    • Dr. Cameron: I just don't see why you have to deny it.
      Dr. Chase: I'm not.
      Dr. Cameron: Now you're denying you're denying.
      Dr. Chase: No, I'm denying that there's anything to deny.

    • Roy: Are you Dr. House?
      House: I understand you're a big fan. I'll have my guy send over a signed glossy.

    • House: People don't get what they deserve. They just get what they get. There's nothing any of us can do about it.

    • Thirteen: Thanks.
      Dr. Wilson: You're welcome. For what?
      Thirteen: For thinking I was worth breaking the law to keep around.
      Dr. Wilson: That's just the way I am. But still don't know what you're talking about.

    • Dr. Chase: (to House) Whether you want to be in charge or not, you are, and you always will be.
