Episode Quotes
Dr. House: Relax, I’m a doctor. Your spectacular breasts mean nothing to me.

Dr. Taub: But I’ve dreamed about having sex with a lot of people that I worked with, and it didn’t freak me out.
Dr. Park: That’s different.
Dr. Taub: How?
Dr. Park: ‘Cause you’ve actually had sex with a lot of people at work, and that hasn’t freaked you out.
Dr. Taub: Point taken.

Dominika Patrova: When you invite me for dinner, I thought you take me for restaurant. Or have plates.
Dr. House: Yeah. Sorry. Idiot delivery guy forgot them.
Dominika Patrova: Mm, the idiot delivery guy or the idiot guy whose food you stole from lounge refrigerator, huh?

Dr. House: Interesting.
Dr. Chase: So we should start treating...
Dr. House: Interesting that you keep falling for it when I say "interesting."

Dr. Taub: Can you please hint to House that you had a sex dream? I’d really prefer not to get distracted with trying to cure the patient today.
Dr. Adams: I refuse to divulge my dreams about girl-on-girl loofah action.

Dr. House: Good news for Park, I think Chase had a sex dream about you.
Dr. Chase: Dreams don't mean anything.

Dominika Patrova: This is Mrs. House. Please give good news so my husband and I can go back to sex.

Dr. House: She was fun, she was hot, she fixed my blender. That is not a metaphor.
