    • House: His doctor's busy trying to teach him to blink out "Kill me" in Morse code.
      This is a reference to the 1971 film Johnny Got His Gun. The main character, Joe Bonham, is a quadruple amputee who has also lost his eyes, ears, mouth and nose, the result of an artillery shell during World War I. He shares a similar plight to Lee in that he can hear and understand everything going on around him but is unable to communicate. He eventually begins to use Morse code by tapping his head against his pillow, starting with "SOS" and eventually begging, "KILL ME."
