Dr. Gregory House
Dr. Allison Cameron
Dr. Robert Chase
Dr. Eric Foreman
Dr. Lisa Cuddy
Dr. James Wilson
Early on, when reviewing the patient details, House notes that someone used up the last of the animal crackers and set the empty box right back on the counter, then complains to all that "if you use them all up, throw the box away" with the box in his hand. There is a sound that might be intended as the box getting thrown away (although no such act is shown). In the next scene, the box is right back where it originally was.
In season one Mark told House that Stacy never wears any jewelry other than the cross her mom gave her. However, in this episode she is wearing earrings.
Trivia: When Foreman is going through a pile of DVDs at Margo's house, one of them show the cover of Winning London, an Olsen Twins movie which Jesse Spencer (Dr. Chase) co-starred in.
House: This better be important.
Dr. Cameron: You've gotta come back in.
House: No I don't.
Dr. Cameron: Margo's stable but...
House: Oh my God! I'll be right there!
House: We're done. Get rid of her.
Dr. Foreman: We're not done. We have to confirm the diagnosis before we send her home to die of something else.
House: Oh yes, the power tastes so sweet. You just can't resist, you're like a diabetic at the ice cream counter, you want to say no, but you need that chocolately goodness.
Dr. Foreman: Well, I'm still signing the charts. So until tomorrow you're not allowed to kill anyone.
House: She's not going to leave Mark in the middle of his rehab. Too much guilt.
Dr. Wilson: She left you.
House: Harsh 'tude, dude.
House: Peeing on a stick is only 99% accurate. Get a real pregnancy test. You know, the one with the blood and the hormones and the rabbit. (Foreman looks put off) Oh, I'm sorry. It's still your limo. What do you say, Miss Daisy?
Dr. Foreman: Whatever you want.
House: Lame duck's done quacking.
Dr. Foreman: You quack, people shoot at you. Cuddy just put me here to make you miserable. Another two days, you can go back to making yourself miserable.
House: Cocaine with a PG rating.
House: Ultrasound her uterus this time. See if there's something growing in there that doesn't look adorable in a onesie.
Dr. Cuddy: (seeing House come in) He's actually on time.
Dr. Wilson: He's six minutes early.
Dr. Cuddy: Something's happened.
Dr. Wilson: I'm on it.
House: Wow. It's a big jump from "Infidelity is morally wrong" to "Do her."
House: What does the flailing look like?
Dr. Chase: Her arms spasm uncontrollably and there's a mild facial twitch.
Dr. Foreman: (impatiently) You wanna know what it looks like, go see the patient.
House: Ooo, snarky. Was he like this the whole time I was gone?
House: (to the whiteboard) We give you so much, and you give us so little.
Dr. Cuddy: (about Stacy) Here's what I think she's gonna say: "Oh I love Greg, but if you go against a patient's wishes, you're calling her a liar. And if something goes wrong, I end up in court having to defend the big, mean doctor, albeit with dreamy eyes, who wouldn't believe the nice suburban mom. And even though his cane makes me melt, do the damn surgery."
House: Foreman, need your help here. You want to pull a bank job, would you go it alone? You gonna rob a house, sure, it's a one- or two-man crew. A bank...a lookout, getaway driver...
Dr. Foreman: I'm not saying anything till this metaphor plays itself out.
House: Cameron... I love you. (swabs her open mouth) Get your test results tomorrow.
House: Who finished the animal crackers? If you finish something, don't just put back the empty box, throw it out!
Dr. Wilson: What the hell happened in Baltimore?
House: Sorry, chief--I never kiss and tell.
Dr. Wilson: I think you just did.
Dr. Wilson: This isn't just going to go away.
House: No, but maybe you will.
Dr. Foreman: Hyper-vigilance, sudden irritability.
House: Symptomatic of…lunch with Cuddy?
House: (knocking on Wilson's door) I know you're in there. I can hear you caring.
House: (to Foreman) Your four weeks just expired. Your reign of terror is over – mine has just begun. Now go stick a needle up her hoo-hoo and find that cancer.
Dr. Chase: "Hoo-hoo"?
Dr. Foreman: He went to Hopkins.
Stella: What's wrong with your foot?
House: War wound.
Stella: Does it hurt?
House: Every day.
Stella: Is that why you're so sad?
House: Oh aren't you adorable. I'm not sad, I'm complicated - chicks dig that. One day you'll understand.
Stacy: What was Greg like after I left?
Dr. Cuddy: Uhh, an egomaniacal narcissistic pain in the ass. Same as before you left.
Dr. Cameron: You won't read your mail, but you'll open mine.
House: It was confidential. I wanted to know.
Dr. Cameron: The most important letter of my life, and you're still an ass.
House: Comforting, isn't it?
Dr. Foreman: It's the perfect marriage – there's nothing to fight about if you never talk about anything.
Dr. Wilson: Being miserable doesn't make you better than anyone else, House. It just makes you miserable.
House: You're gonna want to paralyze her. Run tests on a flailer and somebody's gonna lose an eye.
Dr. Wilson: Great, breaking up a marriage - fertile ground for high comedy.
International Air Dates:
The Netherlands: March 22, 2007 on SBS 6
Music: The song that House comes in singing is "Serenade" from The Student Prince by Sigmund Romberg.
Sela Ward is billed as Special Guest Star.
Dr. Cameron: Momma's little helper.
"Mother's Little Helper" is a song by the Rolling Stones (released in 1966) dealing with the issue of mothers taking prescription drugs to be able to manage their day. It is about the hypocrisy of the "look the other way" attitude about such drug abuse in the upper and middle class, at a time when society looked very down on abuse of so-called "illegal drugs". The song is titled after the existing terminology, not the other way around.
House: (to Foreman) Oh, I'm sorry! It's still your limo. What do you say, Miss Daisy?
Refers to Driving Miss Daisy (1989), the movie starring Morgan Freeman and Jessica Tandy. Freeman was hired by Tandy's son, Dan Aykroyd, to drive his elderly mother around Atlanta in the late 50s. It told the story of their 20-year friendship through the chauffeur's point of view. Directed by Bruce Beresford.
House: It explains the psychosis and the flailing, and the uncanny ability to bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never, ever let Teddy forget that he's a man.
House draws a comment about Margo's active life -- substituting 'Teddy' for 'him', and adding 'ever' -- from a series of ads for Enjoli perfume from the late 1970s. A gorgeous female executive could "do it all" with just a little help from the fragrance, or so it was claimed.
