House: Why do you want me to treat this guy?
Dr. Wilson: Blood pressure's not responding to IV fluid...
House: No, no. I didn't ask how you planned to con me into treating him. I asked you why you want me to treat him.
Dr. Wilson: He's sick, I care, I'm pathetic.
House: There are a billion sick people on the planet. Why this one?
Dr. Wilson: Because this one's in our emergency room.
House: Ah, so it's a proximity issue. If someone was sick in the third floor stairwell that's him we'd be talking about.
Dr. Wilson: Yes, I checked the stairwell, it's clear.
