  • Quotes

    • House: Chase is right. All parents screw up all children. He's also dreamy, but that's not relevant now.

    • Dr. Park: Syph test was negative. Plus, the kid's never been sexually active.
      House: Yeah, I got that from the line on his chart that says, "birthday clown."

    • Dr. Foreman: What do I need to do for you?
      House: Halve the clinic hours that you recently doubled and double the hooker budget that you recently halved. I think you refer to it as petty cash.

    • Dr. Foreman: You go to that fight, you go to prison.
      House: But that would be redundant. I have an angry man waiting for me to drop the soap right here.

    • Dr. Park: This is how you plan to get to the boxing game?
      Dr. Chase: Why are you looking at (Adams)?
      House: Because I'm stunned, and I have to look at something. Mach, bout, fight, contest, day, Helan. Almost anything works after "boxing," except the word "game."

    • Dr. Chase: Even the best-intentioned parents end up damaging their kids.
      Dr. Adams: You're a smart, successful doctor. How much damage could you have?
      Dr. Chase: Know how I got interested in medicine? When my mother drank, she couldn't handle me, so she locked me in my father's study. Only so many hours you can cry and bang on the door before you give up, find something to read. We all have family dysfunction. That's why we're successful. To fill that hole.

    • Dr. Park: Do you only like tests that involve the risk of death?
      House: There are some slower, less conclusive tests, but why take that risk?

    • House: Your parents screwed you up by not screwing you up.
      Dr. Adams: How does briefly wishing I was screwed up make me screwed up?
      House: It's normal to be screwed up. It's really screwed up to romanticize it. I guess that's why you wanted to work with prisoners.
      Dr. Adams: It's why I wanted to work with you.
