Dr. Gregory House
Dr. Allison Cameron
Dr. Robert Chase
Dr. Lisa Cuddy
Dr. Eric Foreman
Dr. James Wilson
Dr. Julie Whitner
In the OR the surgeon talks about the spleen that exploded, but is operating on the right side of the abdomen. Unless Stevie has a Situs Inversus Abdominalis where the organs in the abdomen are on the other side, the spleen should be on his left. The liver is on the right side, the spleen left.
In her office, Cuddy tells House he'll get back his parking space if he manages to do his work in a wheelchair. After that Cameron meets House in the hallway and she needs to ask about the wheelchair, yet somehow right after that she knows the specifics of the deal.
In the O.R., that is not how the small intestine looks like in a human being. In a normal human it is embedded in the mesentery and it's not a long loose "rope" as seen here.
When Cameron says the wrist bone mnemonic she says "scared lovers try positions they can't handle." However, the writer or actress muffs the line as the correct mnemonic is "scared lovers try positions that they can't handle", which works to remember the bones Scaphoid, Lunate, Triquetral, Pisiform, Trapezium, Trapezoid, Capitate, and Hamate.
Trivia: The bumper sticker on the back of House's wheelchair said "I'd rather be walking."
House: This is about who can most easily cross the parking lot. You're the winner.
Dr. Whitner: Oh, and the prize is apparently a parking space.
Dr. Cuddy: Your application for handicap space says you can walk 50 yards.
House: And Whitner's says she can roll 50 miles between oil changes, I can't change my leg!
Dr. Cuddy: The space I moved you to is only 46 yards away from the front door. I measured; you'll be fine.
House: Great, so I can collapse four yards into the lobby instead of outside in the cold.
Dr. Cuddy: As long as it isn't in my office.
Dr. Cameron: We were treating him for Wegener's when everything went wrong.
House: Not everything.
Dr. Foreman: Yeah, It was a very lovely day outside, on the other hand the treatment made him worse.
House: They're (the gypsies) absolutely right. Stay away from the experimental stuff, much better to stick with the "moving the furniture until he gets better" approach.
Judy: (Stevie) wouldn't even need to be here if not for you!
Leah: Yeah, I'm so unclean I made his liver shut down!
Dr. Chase: He's Romany, apparently they feel the need to keep secrets so it's hard to know anything for sure.
House: Yeah, he's also a human being, which means you shouldn't be trusting him to begin with.
Dr. Whitner: They had to move me closer to the door.
House: Had to? You don't look like the type to pull a weapon.
Dr. Whitner: Wheelchair.
House: Cane. I think you should do the honorable thing, let me have my space back.
Dr. Whitner: Oh well, er, since you asked so nicely... wheelchair.
House: (loudly) No way Cuddy is going to gyp me.
Franklin: What'd you say?
House: (to Wilson) I'll see you later. Gonna have them yelling at me for the next twenty minutes.
Dr. Foreman: Sixteen year old with respiratory arrest.
House: The only thing I hate more than a thief is a crippled thief.
Dr. Foreman: Yeah, me too. No sign of trauma, no history of…
Dr. Cuddy: You can't be serious.
House: Actually, I can. (frowns) See?
Dr. Foreman: There's no leak!
House: Hey! You can't yell at a guy in a wheelchair.
Dr. Cuddy: Pride goeth before the fall.
House: Lucky for me I'm sitting in one of these babies.
House: You guys are still thinking like doctors. You should be thinking like plumbers. Come on, let me see some butt crack.
Kate: I think he's learned his lesson.
House: Oh, I don't know, we better check. Jack, is your mommy a big fat idiot?
House: Well what do you know? Guess you were right.
Dr. Wilson: Ah yes, if it isn't Dr. Ironside.
House: Ah, if it isn't Dr. "I had no friends when I was growing up, so all I did was watch TV by myself which is why I can now make constant pop cultural references which no one understands but me."
Dr. Wilson: That's my name, don't wear it out.
House: Safe from Cuddy, but I guess not from her trusted rat accomplice.
Dr. Wilson: Give it up, you're demeaning yourself.
House: That's what they told Rosa Parks!
Dr. Foreman: We plug one hole and end up poking another.
House: We talking about the patient or how to get a raise from Cuddy?
Dr. Whitner: I'm not worried. From what I hear what you lack in shame you also lack in willpower.
House: My will may be weak, but my backbone is strong. And pain-free now that I've stopped using the cane. Of course it's harder to look down Cuddy's shirt. But the vantage point on her ass is much improved. That's just me, always looking on the bright side. I'm the one who said her C-cups are half full.
Dr. Whitner: (suggestively) They are nice, aren't they?
House: Ahhh, no no no no no. You're not going to win me over that easily. You may have the wheel but it doesn't mean you get the grease. You've got to squeak.
House: Excuse me! Sorry, cripple coming through!
Dr. Chase: Is she hot?
Dr. Cameron: She's in a wheelchair.
Dr. Chase: Doesn't mean she's not hot.
House: Just means she can't bend over. So Cuddy has to bend over backwards.
Dr. Wilson: And legal beats logic every time... just ask O.J.
House: That space is mine. Veni, vidi, vici.

House: Because we need to take the center square to block.
Referencing the TV series The Hollywood Squares (1966) and its several successors. The game is basically a giant-sized version of Tic-Tac-Toe, where the contestants listen to a celebrity answer a question and determine if it's true or false. If they're correct they "get the square." As in regular Tic-Tac-Toe, taking the center square is usually necessity.
House: I like that kid. He's got spunk.
Referencing the line spoken by Ed Asner as editor Lou Grant in the first episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. The complete line is "You know what? You've got spunk! ... I hate spunk!"
Dr. Wilson: Ah yes, if it isn't Dr. Ironside.
Referencing the 1967-1975 series Ironside, starring Raymond Burr as Robert Ironside, a wheelchair-bound consulting detective.
House: Veni, vidi, vici.
This is an allusion to Julius Caesar's terse remark - translated as "I came, I saw, I conquered", or even "came, saw, conquered" - which he used to proclaim the totality of his victory.
