  • Quotes

    • Dr. Chase: You're sharing this unique insight that women don't like lying?
      Masters: Uh, no, I'm sharing my unique insight that you don't respect women. You sleep with a different one every few days. Or maybe... you find meaning in meaningless relationships.
      Dr. Chase: At least I have relationships.

    • Dr. Cuddy: I assume you're avoiding me because of the charity gala.
      House: This Friday? It completely slipped my mind.
      Dr. Cuddy: So you'll be there?
      House: No, I meant it slipped my mind to tell you I'm not going.

    • Dr. Foreman: Are you wearing my tie?
      Taub: I saw it in your closet, and it happened to match my shirt.
      Dr. Foreman: Why were you in my closet?
      Taub: Looking for a tie. What's the big deal?
      House: Obviously he wants you out of the closet for some reason. I suspect marriage, but I'm liberal that way.

    • House: All right, I'll send along one of your big brothers to help. (indicates Foreman, Chase, Taub) Do you want Scary, Smarmy, or Shorty?

    • Dr. Wilson: Well, at least the Alzheimer's patient in 202 won't remember she only got half a ham sandwich.
      House: I'm doing her a favor.

    • House: Why do people believe I'm incapable of doing anything nice?
      Dr. Wilson: Experience.

    • House: It's real. Unfortunately. Because Vicodin doesn't cause rash, fever, and joint pain. It does make Taub considerably less annoying, though.

    • Dr. Foreman: I assume you're planning on screwing it up so you want to maximize witnesses.
      House: Why does everyone go to that?
      Dr. Foreman: Experience.
      House: Shut up.

    • Dr. Wilson: You okay?
      House: Why wouldn't I be? I solved my case.
      Dr. Wilson: But your patient died.
      House: I didn't say in time.

    • House: I choose you. I choose being happy with you. I will always choose you. Heh. My head's on your vagina.
