  • Quotes

    • Dr. Wilson: What are you doing tonight?
      House: Masturbating. I'd invite you, but people are already talking.

    • Dr. Wilson: Come out with me tonight. I'm going speed dating.
      House: You mean you're dating on meth? Count me in.

    • Dr. Wilson: I don't get it. I mean, okay, he was a friend of the family. You'd only known him when you were a kid. But if you wanted to meet him now, get an idea of what he's like, why not just go talk to him?
      House: "Hi, it's Greg. You slept with my mother."
      Dr. Wilson: You're capable of it.

    • Dr. Wilson: Because you're not ordinary, House. You're way out there on the fringe somewhere. I'm your best friend, and half the time I don't understand you. You're alone. Been alone your whole life.
