  • Trivia

    • At the end of the previous episode (and in the flashback this episode), House has a bloodstain on his left cheek which is very dark in the center. Yet here, the stain is not dark any more.

  • Quotes

    • Dr. Foreman: Has anyone seen House?
      Taub: It's 10:00 a.m. I'd be worried if he was here.

    • Dr. Cuddy: House.
      House: Yeah.
      Dr. Cuddy: The secret bath is... burning my lady parts.
      House: How do you think my (whispers) anus feels? Burning means it's working.
      Dr. Cuddy: Can we get out now?
      House: I was so waiting for you to say that.

    • Alex: Dr. Cuddy's first assignment was for me to get to know everything about Dr. House's team... and not to believe anything any of them told me.

    • Dr. Cuddy: What is my tell?
      House: Are you kidding? If I tell you your tell, you'd get rid of it and I won't be able to tell.

    • Dr. Cuddy: Just let (Wilson) in.
      House: No! He's like a stray... he'll eat everything, shed all over the place, and crap on the floor.

    • Dr. Cuddy: Why didn't you let him in?
      House: You were thinking about Wilson while we were having sex? That's so cool! So was I.

    • House: You think I'm afraid to go public? I'm gonna prove you wrong.
      Dr. Cuddy: With a tripod?
      House: With a sex tape. We'll send it to Wilson. It's win-win. We get to do it again. And... he might actually learn something.

    • House: This isn't gonna work.
      Dr. Cuddy: That's it? You can't just say that and shut up.
      House: It's just a statement of fact. It's not a debatable proposition.
      Dr. Cuddy: Right. Because you can see the future.
      House: No, but I can see the past. And you're gonna remember all the horrible things I've done, and you're going to try and convince yourself that I've changed. And I'm gonna start doing those horrible things again, because I haven't changed. Then you'll realize that... I'm an insane choice for someone who has a kid. And from there, it's a short step to the inevitable conclusion that all of this... was a mistake.

    • Dr. Chase: Cake? Taub thought we should have a little party to see you off properly. He gets sentimental about these things.
      Thirteen: I never should have flashed him.

    • House: You think I can change. Tell me where I'm wrong.
      Dr. Cuddy: I don't want you to change. I know you're screwed up. I know you are always gonna be screwed up. But you're the most incredible man I've ever known. You are always gonna be... the most incredible man I have ever known. So unless you're breaking up with me, I'm going home now.
