Dr. James Wilson
House diagnoses Ali with coccidioidomycosis in Cuddy's office. However, whilst Coccidioides immitis would cause cold-like symptoms, it would not cause lack of inhibition like House suggests.
When they are strapping Adam to the scanner, the hands that strap his head belong to a woman, and have perfectly manicured fingernails. When the shot pans out, the person standing near Adam's head is a man.
When the kid is laying down about to be scanned, you can see his hair is perfectly arranged, after that his hair is all messy for no apparent reason.
The age of consent in New Jersey is 16, making the issue raised moot from a legal standpoint.
House: You remove this kid's eye, he's only gonna be half as good at not making eye contact.
Dr. Cuddy: What are you doing here? I have this room booked from two to three.
House: Oh, two East-Coast time. I thought you meant Pacific. Ah, which is stupid of me, I guess.
House: I want it back the way it was.
Dr. Cuddy: It's identical to the old carpet, except without the hazardous, biological waste.
House: I shall not return to my office until every patented, durable microfibre has been restored to its rightful place.
House: Hey! Don't touch his eye!
Surgeon: This is an appendectomy.
House: Like I said, don't touch his eye.
Dr. Cuddy: She has a mole on her right breast, just below the nipple.
House: No she doesn't.
Dr. Cuddy: You've seen her breasts?
House: It was a medical exam. I was listening to her heart. It went "Greg-House, Greg-House, Greg-House."
House: I want my old carpet back.
Dr. Cuddy: It was stained with blood.
House: Yeah... my blood. Which makes the carpet part of me. I want it back. I wanna be buried with it.
Dr. Cuddy: You think you can get me to do anything you want regardless of how stupid it is?
Dr. Cuddy: The girl will have sex with an invertebrate.
House: Come on, you're not that bad.
Dr. Cuddy: (talking about Ali) Your girlfriend called the clinic 15 times looking for you today!
House: Huh! A lot to discuss, china patterns...
Dr. Cuddy: House, she is a stalker!
House: Right! Couldn't be that she finds me interesting, attractive. Has to be that she's insane.
Dr. Cuddy: She's called you 15 times! Your mother is not that interested in you!
House: Well, maybe I'd be better adjusted if she was!
Dr. Wilson: You couldn't make Cuddy miserable, so you're gonna make me miserable, so I can make Cuddy miserable on your behalf?
Dr. Wilson: What makes you think I can make her miserable?
House: Because you're good at that stuff!
Dr. Wilson: Oh, I'm nothing compared to you!
Dr. Wilson: You're not autistic. You don't even have Asperger's. You wish you did, it would exempt you from the rules. Give you freedom, absolve you of responsibility. Let you date 17-year olds. But most important it would mean you're not just a jerk.
House: At what point does a person endlessly lecturing someone make him a jerk?
Dr. Cuddy: House doesn't have Asperger's. The diagnosis is much simpler. He's a jerk.
Dr. Wilson: Why do you think he took this case? Because he believes these parents? Because he wants to help a young boy? He sees himself in this kid and he's trying to help himself. He doesn't want this, he needs it.
House: Is this about the carpet? You think I'll back off if you block all my fun?
Dr. Cuddy: You better not be having fun!
House: I'm having fun. I'm not having sex.
House: After that look, I'm feeling a little frisky. Looks like you're up.
Dr. Cuddy: I'm ovulating. Let's go.
House: The frisky, it went away.
House: If I leave (Ali) alone can I have my carpet back?
Dr. Cuddy: No.
House: If I forget my carpet can I have her?
(on the stairs)
Dr. Cuddy: Are we stopping here so House doesn't find us?
Dr. Wilson: Hm, unless you wanna make out.
House: (about Adam) Why would you feel sorry for someone who gets to opt out of the inane courteous formalities which are utterly meaningless, insincere, and therefore degrading. This kid doesn't have to pretend to be interested in your back pain, or your excretions, or your grandma's itchy place. Can you imagine how liberating it would be to live a life free of all the mind-numbing social niceties? I don't pity this kid. I envy him.
Dr. Cuddy: She's dangerous!
House: She's not dangerous.
Dr. Cuddy: She's pretty.
House: She's pretty.
Dr. Cuddy: Men are stupid.
House: I'm with you so far.
House: Exactly when did New Jersey run out of horny 17-year old boys?
House: Go up his rear, and get a smear. Which reminds me, I kinda feel like a bagel.
House: You are over 10 years younger than me. (Ali smirks) I said over.
Dr. Foreman: I had a date last night and she screamed, should we spend a hundred thousand dollars testing her?
House: Of course not, this isn't a veterinary hospital. Zing!
Dr. Cuddy: I have sad news for you: She doesn't love you.
House: You're ugly when you're jealous.
Dr. Cuddy: She showed up at my house last night--came on to me.
House: She's more perfect than I thought.
House: Why can't you be more like the age-inappropriate girls who have a thing for me? Just accept me for me.

Adam is seen playing the game Frantix (from SOE) on his PSP.
The Handheld that Adam has is a PSP (Playstation Portable).
Music: The song during the closing scenes is "Waiting on an Angel" by Ben Harper.
House: Devious. I saw it in a James Bond movie.
James Bond, aka 007, is a fictional British spy created by writer Ian Fleming in 1952. James Bond is now best known from the EON Productions film series. As of late 2006, twenty-one films have been made.
House: So, think maybe Gray's Anatomy got it all wrong?
House sarcastically alluded that Adam's liver cells were in the right place and that Henry Gray's Anatomy of the Human Body, one of the most reliable and comprehensive resources used by medical students and professionals, got the placement wrong.
Dr. Foreman: Our kid's been tripping on "Lucy in the Sky with Cubic Zirconium."
Foreman is making a pun on the famous Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" (1967), which purportedly was about the psychedelic drug LSD, also known as acid. "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" or just "Lucy" became slang for the drug.
House: Hello, my pretties…
Echoing the cackling greeting/threat of the Wicked Witch from The Wizard of Oz (1939), with Margaret Hamilton in the role.
House: This is your backyard--you may know it as Mel's Diner.
Referencing the movie Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974), with Ellen Burstyn as Alice Hyatt, who ends up waitressing at a diner owned by...well, Mel Sharples (Vic Tayback). The movie was spun off into a TV series, Alice (1976-1985), with Vic Tayback continuing the role of Mel.
House: Attica! Attica!
When House tries to convince Dr. Cuddy to get his carpet back, he uses the same rallying cry used by Al Pacino's character in Sidney Lumet's 1975 film Dog Day Afternoon.
House: We both know you belong with Victor.
This line, along with most of House's subsequent speech, is loosely paraphrased from Casablanca (1942), starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergmann, and Paul Henreid. The main character (Rick), a cynical realist, tells the woman he loves/who loves him (Ilsa) that they can't be together -- that she belongs with her husband (Victor), a prominent member of the French Resistance.
