    • Dr. Cuddy: You do whatever you want, always.
      House: I said I was sorry. I was--I was still half asleep. I wasn't paying attention.
      Dr. Cuddy: And you're always right. And I don't mean you always think you're right. But y--you are actually always right, because that's all that matters.
      House: That doesn't even make sense. What, you want me to be wrong?

    • Colleen: I clearly didn't lead him along or anything like that, which proves that I'm not a tease. So why is your girlfriend mad at you?

      Colleen: Don't answer. Your turn.

    • Sophie: Isn't that like sexual harassment?

  • Allusions

    • Timmy: Plus, I've seen Pulp Fiction--the movie you're totally ripping off.
      Referencing the movie, with the entire room in the first scene with House and Foreman is positioned just like the room in the first scene of Pulp Fiction - the positions of the kids, the burger, Foreman looking in the kitchen, and House standing in front of the door, including the camera angles.

    • House: Because you can't handle the truth!
      Referencing the famous quote spoken by Jack Nicholson from the film A Few Good Men (1992), starring Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and Jack Nicholson. Cruise plays the role of Lt. Daniel Kaffee as he tries to defend two Marines for the murder of a fellow marine. It culminates with Kaffee confronting his defendants' Commanding Officer, Colonel Nathan Jessop (Nicholson) to admit that he ordered the men to perform a "code red" (extrajudicial punishment) which led to the marine's death.

    • House: That's what she said!
      Referencing The Office, where the expression has become the catchphrase of Michael Scott (Steve Carrell). It's an abbreviated version of a similar British phrase, "said the actress to the bishop," and used when referring to a sexual entendre.

    • Timothy: Ghostbusters.
      Referencing Ghostbusters, the 1984 Ivan Reitman sci-fi comedy movie about four ghost hunters/exterminators in New York City. It had a sequel in 1989 and two succeeding animated TV series versions.

    • Timothy: That's from Thunderbolt and Lightfoot.
      Referencing the 1974 movie starring Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges respectively in the title roles. The two men are bank robbers, and Thunderbolt uses a 20mm cannon in his robberies to break open safes and armored cars.

    • Timothy: The Thomas Crown Affair. The Steve McQueen version.
      Referencing the 1968 movie starring McQueen as a millionaire businessman who engineers a complicated bank robbery to relieve his boredom. He becomes involved with an insurance investigator who is romantically drawn to him while trying to connect him to the robbery. The movie was remade in 1999.

    • House: We watched Cinderfella on DVD.
      Referencing the 1960 movie starring Jerry Lewis, which reverses the gender of the characters in the traditional fairy tale, Cinderella. Lewis plays the title character, who ends up with Princess Charmine.

    • House: It would have worked, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids.
      Referencing the various Scooby Doo animated television series, starting with Scooby Doo, Where Are You! (1969). Typically, the villain at the end announces something along the lines of, "And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for those meddling kids!"
