  • Quotes

    • Alvarez: Get up, House.
      House: Must be some mistake. I specifically requested my wakeup startle three hours from now.

    • House: Nice painting. Blues and greens. Calming, but with a hint of nurturing. Totally offsets the stench of suffering and death. Where's my patient? We need to not talk.

    • Dr. Foreman: Get this straight. You break the law, you go back to jail. Scam extra Vicodin, back to jail. Flout my authority, make the hospital look bad, back to jail. I own you.
      House: Yassa, massa.
      Dr. Foreman: See, that would be an example.

    • House: Prison! Sorry. I thought I heard everyone else think that. I was in prison, you see. It was a long time ago, but still you're curious. Never was raped, not raped-raped. Well, raped-raped, but not raped-raped-raped. Well, now that we've got that completely behind us.
      Dr. Simpson: Sorry, Dr. House. Welcome back.
      House: Is there cake?

    • House: Okay, I'll go first. My boss dumped me, and yours what? Called you his china doll? Joked about what a crappy deal you got for Manhattan? Assumed that you had a huge penis? I have no idea what flavor you are, so I thought I'd just cover the spread.
      Dr. Park: My mom's Filipino, dad's Korean, and my boss grabbed my behind.
      House: Behind what? Oh, yeah, your--grabbed your tushy.

    • Mr. Weathers: I told you, my son didn't do cocaine.
      House: Druggies are not known for their honesty. Trust me on this one.

    • House: Running away from home is a time-honored tradition. But you're not doing it to flee your parents, you're doing it to protect them. That's an insult to everything teen prostitutes have worked for.

    • House: Nice.
      Dr. Wilson: What?
      House: Nothing.
      Dr. Wilson: Don't start that.
      House: Start what? I'm enjoying our conversation. The repartee.
      Dr. Wilson: There was no repartee.
      House: That was repartee.

    • Dr. Park: I told you I'm Korean and Filipino.
      House: And I told you I wasn't listening. By my actions.

    • Dr. Wilson: House, the nurses saw you come in.
      House: Enter.
      Dr. Wilson: It's a bathroom.
      House: Ah, explains the hole in this chair.

    • Dr. Park: Why aren't you more alarmed? We're running out of time.
      House: Ahhhh, she's dying! Were you able to figure out what was wrong while I was screaming?

    • Dr. Park: Did you use metaphors for your old team? Or do you just think I'm particularly stupid?
      House: No, they were stupid too.

    • House: But just do whatever you have to do to get over this. Punch me in the face, kick me in the nuts. Either or. Both seems excessive.

  • Allusions

    • House: Kato. Get Black Beauty and meet me out front.
      Referencing the radio series created in 1936 by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker. Britt Reid is typically the Green Hornet, a newspaper publisher who poses as a masked criminal ganglord, the Green Hornet, while bringing down the mobs from within. His chauffeur, Kato, is a skilled martial artist, driver, and mechanic, and drives the Black Beauty, a weapon-laden car. The characters have since been adapted to two movie serials, a one-season TV program in 1966, a series of comic books, and a feature movie in 2011.

    • House: It's not as bad as a thousand people going down in a gigantic boat, right?
      This and other comments referencing James Cameron's 1997 movie Titanic. The film won 11 Academy Awards and was the first movie to gross over 1 billion dollars. It recreates the first and last voyage of the RMS Titanic in 1912 as the backdrop for the love story between Rose DeWitt Bukater and Jack Dawson. The song that House plays is the romantic theme from the movie.
