  • Quotes

    • House: You did time. Means your license is suspended. Which means your leave of absence is definitely indefinite. What exactly are you going back to?
      Thirteen: I'd only have to serve up fries until the medical board hearing.
      House: I stand corrected. You obviously have a rich, full life waiting for you. I'll slow down the car and you can roll out.

    • Thirteen: You're married?
      House: You were gone so long.

    • Thirteen: What's this really all about, House? As convincing as I find your deep devotion to vegetable trajectory.

    • Thirteen: This interrogation thing is getting annoying.
      House: Studies have shown that un-annoying interrogation is 50% less effective.

    • Dr. Foreman: I don't know how you do it. Is it the cute, harmless vibe, the self-deprecating humor, or just straight-up roofies?
      Taub: If you're interested, I do seminars.

    • House: (as Thirteen changes in the bathroom) You know that I'm a doctor. Any interest I have in the human body is purely clinical.
      Thirteen: Yeah, that line never works for me.
      House: That line always works for you.

    • Taub: I was doing you a solid with the sofa. Rachel wanted to do it in your bed. You've got the memory foam top.
      Dr. Foreman: Let's make this really simple. If I own it, I don't want you doing it on it.
      Taub: You might want to get rid of your kitchen table.

    • Thirteen: (on the phone) There's another option.
      Dr. Foreman: House, who's that?
      House: Radio.
      Dr. Foreman: Sounded a lot like Thirteen.
      House: It's a Thirteen Tribute band with their new song, "I've Got a Better Theory Than Masters'."

    • House: (to Thirteen) I'll kill you. When the time comes, if you want me to. I'll do it now if you like. I think I've got a baseball bat in the back.
