Episode Quotes
Dr. Cameron: Olandt from Philly General wants me to get a patient in to see House.
Dr. Chase: So?
Dr. Cameron: I owe him a favor. He's taken about a dozen of my referrals over the last year.
Dr. Chase: I meant so that's five seconds to hand House the file, 30 for him to question your real motives, a minute for witty comments comparing the length of your legs to Thirteen's... plenty of time left over for the shore.

Dr. Foreman: The only kind of mothering House wants involves a bullwhip, leather diapers, and a credit card.

Dr. Hadley: I guess we'll just continue to twiddle our thumbs.
Dr. House: God, I hope that's an euphemism.
Dr. Cameron: How am I supposed to do a lumbar puncture on a patient with intractable hiccups?
Dr. House: I'm trying to figure out what that could be a euphemism for.

Dr. House: Who eats kale? It's so bland, it doesn't even taste like kale.

Dr. House: Stuff you haven't eaten just proves you haven't eaten it.
Dr. Wilson: You were hoping for evidence of stuff I have eaten? First door on the right.

Dr. House: I lost my mojo.
Dr. Wilson: Have you retraced your steps? Does your cleaning lady check your pockets before...?

Dr. House: Balance organs, nerves, lungs, bones, heart.
Dr. Wilson: Things you use to make bratwurst.

(to Wilson)
Dr. House: You manipulative bitch.

Dr. House: He loves a tree in Oregon more than he loves you. But he can't have sex with it. Unless it's that slutty oak outside Portland.

Dr. House: People only change after trauma, if they wanted to change before the trauma. Or if they've watched too many Afterschool Specials.
