  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Dr. Taub: Impressive.
      House: The wiliness with which Foreman ruled out anxiety or his complete wiliness-less-ness before he met me?
      Dr. Taub: The fact that you managed to smear jelly on almost every page.

    • Dr. Adams: Wait, why would you think his wife poisoned him?
      House: Because dangerous people don't break into your home, they live in it. And although his kids are old enough to want Daddy dead, they're still too young to do anything about it.
      Dr. Taub: Must be such a pleasure to live in your head.
      House: You're right. Kids might be precocious.

    • Dr. Park: So what do you think--is the patient paranoid or am I?
      Dr. Taub: I don't think that stockpiling weapons is the most reasoned response, but, given what I've seen at Bloomingdale's on Black Friday, I wouldn't say it rises to the level of mental illness.
      Dr. Park: And me?
      Dr. Taub: Again, given what I've seen at Bloomingdale's...

    • Dr. Taub: If anarchy breaks out, I plan to do what my ancestors have done throughout the ages--run.

    • Dr. Wilson: You like anything dangerous--monster trucks, motorcycles, fireworks
      House: Everyone loves fireworks.
      Dr. Wilson: Watching them, not making them.

    • Dr. Adams: So why didn't you want to go with her this morning?
      Dr. Chase: She's weird.
      Dr. Adams: She's not weird. She's a good doctor.
      Dr. Chase: Most good doctors are weird. Look at House.
      Dr. Adams: Am I weird?
      Dr. Chase: Yeah, but you're hot so it's easier to put up with. (Adams glares) You're completely normal and a pleasure to deal with.
      Dr. Adams: You're weird.

    • Dr. Chase: Back home, I keep a few for hunting 'roos.
      Dr. Adams: You hunt kangaroos? But they're so cute.
      Dr. Chase: They're also delicious.
      Dr. Adams: You're screwing with me.
      Dr. Chase: Totally.

    • Nurse Regina: Since Claudine left, no one's been inputting the numbers.
      House: I miss Claudine
      Nurse Regina: She left because of you.
      House: I thought that was Nadine.
      Nurse Regina: Her too.

    • Dr. Wilson: Well, you don't have a gun, but you do have my sunglasses, my tennis racket--I can't imagine why...
      House: Had to kill a mouse. It was really hard with those stupid little sunglasses.
      Dr. Wilson: And my money clip.
      House: Was there any money in it?
      Dr. Wilson: Not anymore.
