  • Quotes

    • House: You heard the lady, go plug him in. Am I really that pathetic?
      Dr. Cuddy: What are you talking about?
      House: If I'd pitched electroshock therapy as a cure for broken heart syndrome any other time, you'd have dug in and maybe tried another 100 useless things first. So either you are actually beginning to trust me ... or you just feel sorry for me.
      Dr. Cuddy: You presented a reasonable argument. You were clear-headed and non-impulsive about it. You never once used the word "moron." The rehab's working, House.

    • Dr. Cameron: House, I just heard that you apologized to Wilson.
      Dr. House: Detoxing. I didn't know what I was saying.

    • House: Does your voice always get that high and annoying when you're angry?
      Judge Davis: Do you want to go to jail?
      House: No thank you.

    • House: I told you never to call me when I'm on trial.

    • Dr. Cuddy: The guy's heart isn't working and you want to shock his brain?

    • Dr. Cuddy: House, sit down!
      House: Why? I'm bored.

    • Howard: You're going to go talk to (Tritter).
      House: I was just going to ask him where he gets his hair cut.

    • House: You called to see the design for my prison tats, they're still in R&D.

    • House: I'm sorry. You can hook me up to a damned polygraph.
      Tritter: I'm sure you'd pass. Thing is, I've never been interested in what you say. All I care about is what you do.

    • Dr. Wilson: You're a coward, House. You find fault in everybody because you're afraid to look at yourself.
      House: Thanks--I was running short on platitudes. You can leave now.

    • Dr. Wilson: Is this… an apology?
      House: Part of the program. If you don't like it, I can stop.
      Dr. Wilson: Not at all, it's just so… unfamiliar. Please, keep going.

    • House: Sorry, didn't mean to interrupt.
      Judge Davis: I hope you don't mind that we continued on without you.
      House: I said I was sorry. No need to be sarcastic.

    • Dr. Cuddy: I'm surprised to see you're not spooning your way through the walls.
      House: So, what do you say? How about a conjugal visit to celebrate?

    • Dr. Foreman: Where'd you get the scrip?
      House: Cuddy. You want to know what I gave her?

    • House: You could throw a dart at all the adjectives between "arrogant" and "unhinged" and I'm sure you'd hit one that describes me.
