  • Trivia

    • When Jerry is sweating blood, there is a lot less blood on his chest when the camera does a closeup.

    • As Cameron is examining Becca, her shirt covers her belly and other times it doesn't, depending on the shot.

    • When House drops "baby barf" on Cuddy's shoulder the stain is different after the first angle change. When the angle changes again we see Cuddy cleaning the original stain from her clothes.

  • Quotes

    • House: Whatever's in the cocaine other than the cocaine explains the memory loss.
      Taub: Dealers cut that stuff with all kinds of garbage.
      Thirteen: Great, we'll start him on immediate treatment for all kinds of garbage.

    • (after Cuddy's adopted child is born)
      House: Now it's time to say those magic words you will be telling her for the rest of her life: "Mommy's gonna go to work."

    • Dr. Cuddy: You know you are gonna pay for that?
      House: I'm paying for it right now, with the wisdom.

    • Dr. Cuddy: Thirty-seven-year-old male with recurring blackouts.
      House: Tell him to switch from tequila to bourbon, worked for me.

    • Dr. Cuddy: Why do you even care? It's not like I'm ever going to ask you to babysit.
      House: I'm a humanitarian.

    • Sadie: Are you crazy, bitch?
      Thirteen: No, I'm just a bitch who knows what she wants.

    • House: I need your advice.
      Dr. Wilson: It's not cancer.
      House: Wow! Can you remove spleens with your mind too?

    • House: Why the hell haven't you come to talk to me about Cuddy? I've been doing all sorts of insane stuff.
      Dr. Wilson: If she can't handle your insanity, she can't handle a baby.

    • House: Guy's bleeding out of his pores. What does that tell us? Other than that you don't want to play basketball against him and he's dying?

    • Becca: Who's that?
      Dr. Chase: Dr. Gregory House. He's the one you'll be suing when you develop sepsis.

    • Dr. Cuddy: Stop pressuring her.
      House: Sorry. Daddy's perfectly healthy, but we want you to give him a kidney anyway because it'd be cool if he had three.

    • House: I need a genetic disease.
      Dr. Wilson: I'm sure you're carrying a few.

    • Dr. Wilson: I've just given you the answer, haven't I? And now you're going to walk out of here without saying a word.
      House: (leaving) Nope!

    • House: I'm sure the mom will be thrilled to hand her crack baby off to a doctor.
      Dr. Cuddy: She's not a crack baby.
      House: No, mother's perfectly healthy. She just had to give up the baby in order to continue her work on the human genome.
      Dr. Cuddy: She confessed to some past meth use.
      House: What they don't confess to is almost always more interesting. This is a mistake.
      Dr. Cuddy: Because a kid you don't know may have some problems you don't know about that she may have passed on to a kid?
      House: Because you're a control seeking narcissist. Which is fine, good even in some jobs. But you're not equipped to handle a real kid, never mind a factory second. Where are you meeting her?
      Dr. Cuddy: In a little place called "Follow me and your urologist will be buying himself a new yacht."
      House: They explained the return policy, right? It's worse than video games.
