Episode Quotes
Dr. Wilson: Hey, hey, hey! You are not going to pin this on me. Rachel needs to be monitored for 24 hours to see that the dime passes. You know, just to make sure she doesn't die.
Dr. House: You're telling me to do the right thing while climbing out the window?

Dr. Taub: Dr. Cheng spotted it...
Dr. House: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, what? I know about the Jew, the black, and the Croc Hunter, but when did we get our Asian persuasion on?
Dr. Taub: Dr. Cheng is the NICU attending on the case, and she's not here.
Dr. House: Well, then I just wasted a perfectly good racial epithet.

Dr. Foreman: Where are you?
Dr. House: I believe this is what your people term a poopie call.
Dr. Foreman: Uh, the word's booty.
Dr. House: Well, I don't know what you're doing, but this is a poopie call.

Dr. Wilson: (about Cuddy) All right, she's in her office. Move fast.
Dr. House: You see a double-wide tuchus coming this way, scream like a girl.

Dr. Wilson: (trying to entertain Rachel) "Hello. I'm the friendly moose that lives outside your bedroom."
Dr. House: She hates that moose.
Dr. Wilson: Hand me the gel.

Dr. Wilson: Cuddy will be home from work in six hours. But no big deal. I'll just scream, "Look over there," while you quickly shove a scope up her daughter's rectum.
Dr. House: I could offer to baby-sit again, let her have the night out.
Dr. Wilson: Sure. That won't raise any suspicions.
Dr. House: I wish I was nicer.

Cultural References
Dr. House: So go hire someone who liked The Bridges of Madison Country.

The Bridges of Madison County (1992) is a novel about a Italian woman living in Madison County, Iowa, who falls in love with a National Geographic photographer. It was made into a movie in 1995.

Dr. House: I know about the Jew, the black, and the Croc Hunter, but when did we get our Asian persuasion on?

The Crocodile Hunter is Steve Irwin, who produced a series of the same name. An Australian, Irwin was known for his distinctive accent and enthusiasm for hunting down and displaying dangerous wildlife for the benefit of the viewers at home.

Dr. House: Operation Valkyrie is now in effect.

Operation Valkyrie was the Nazi Germany plan created to ensure continuity of government in case of a major disruption. Several of Hitler's staff hoped to use it to seize control once they assassinated him.
