  • Quotes

    • Dr. Wilson: Just give him another chance. He deserves it.
      Dr. Cuddy: I know. But this isn't about what he deserves. When things go wrong, I don't want to hope that I'm not alone. I want to know it. With House... every time I needed him to step up... He's just never gonna be that. It's not his fault. It's who he is. I should have known it. This is my fault.

    • Masters: You can't feel bad for him for five minutes?
      Taub: I can feel bad for him while still expecting him to act like an adult, show up for work, and not go on a booze-, Vicodin-, and hooker-filled bender.
      Dr. Foreman: Which is why for now we're gonna handle the case without him.
      Dr. Chase: Oh, is that the reason? I thought it was because you can't pass up any chance to seize control.
      Dr. Foreman: I said "we." You want "pretty please," too?

    • Carnell: Don't worry. You can trust me with anything. Including your food.
      House: (indicating Wilson) After he and I have sex, I'm going to slit his throat and then disembowel him in the bathtub.
      Carnell: Oh, no problem. I'll cancel the morning maid service. Would you like me to have them clean up later when they come to turn down your bed?
      House: Why didn't I meet you six months ago?

    • Dr. Wilson: Maybe... talk to someone.
      House: Already scheduled.
      Dr. Wilson: Really?
      House: I'm not an idiot. I know I need help.
      Dr. Wilson: Okay. That's... great. I meant, like, a counselor.
      House: I know.
      Dr. Wilson: But you meant a hooker.
      House: Yeah. Baby steps.

    • Masters: House, how many prostitutes have you had?
      House: As in eaten? Ever? This year?
      Masters: Slept with. Since you've been here.
      House: All but one. She did my taxes.

    • Dr. Wilson: We are gonna talk about this, and we're gonna deal with this.
      House: So I have no choice. Fine. Unless... unless... yes, I do. I do have legs. I see you didn't factor those into your brilliant plan.

    • Dr. Wilson: (House) needs you.
      Dr. Cuddy: I love him. And I know he loves me. But I just can't.
      Dr. Wilson: He needs you in his life. Even if you're not sleeping with him, he needs you. Without you...
      Dr. Cuddy: You can't go backwards. I can't fix his problem. I am his problem.
