While Rachel calls Taub the first time, the carrier indicator says "No Service," which means that the phone isn't able to accept calls at the moment.
When Wilson holds up the Vicodin bottle he says there was a month's prescription in it three days ago and it's now half empty. However we know from previous episodes that a day's recommended dose is six tablets, this means the bottle should have held 180 tablets and it is much too small for that.
House: Hey, we were just getting to the good part.
Dr. Chase: Is there a good part? It was performance art.
House: My doctor says it's okay as long as I don't leave my hospital bed.
Taub: Which doctor was that--Seuss or J?
Dr. Chase: I'm not gonna watch a woman get set on fire.
Taub: Nice, cozy home for little Ruben. It's a family name.
Ruby: It's a sandwich.
Taub: Named for my family.
House: (winning a bet against Foreman) Since I've seen your paycheck, I probably shouldn't. Canned beans aren't so bad... as long as they're cooked over an oil-drum fire under a bridge with the king of the hobos.
Dr. Foreman: How many of those have you had?
House: I don't know. Is "your mother" a number?
Dr. Chase: You want us to waste a bed on her?
House: You took an oath... an oath to be cool. At least that was the one I mumbled under my breath while everyone else was doing the boring one.
Dr. Wilson: You're forging my name on prescriptions again.
House: No. What you just said implies that I stopped at some point.
House: You think I have unresolved issues and you are the unresolved issues.
Dr. Cuddy: Yes. but it's--I think more than that. It's your life, your choices.
House: I did it to fix my life. No, wait, no, I did it because I'm a deeply unhappy person. No--no, I did it to get sympathy from you. I did it to piss you off. I did it because I'm not over you, or I was over you, and I was moving on. I did it because I want to know what it's like not to be in pain. I did it because I want to feel more pain. Whatever the reason, it was a bad reason and a bad idea. That's all that matters. Good lunch.
