Episode Quotes
Hugh Laurie: The ancient Greeks believed that swans only sing once at the point of their death--one beautiful last lament. Well, this is my last swan-like lament.

Warning: This Program Contains Boasting

Hugh Laurie: I'm not saying that House, M.D. is the king of TV shows... wait a minute, no, actually I am saying that. But more importantly, if House is the king, then the people who make House are princes.

Hugh Laurie: And lo, the sets were good.

Hugh Laurie: Well, enough with the pampering. Making me look good takes real work.

Hugh Laurie: House as a character is a strong cup of coffee. Every now and then he comes under attack.

Hugh Laurie: I love the world of House. It can go from the broadly comic to the angry satire to the sort of gut-wrenching tragedy to a horror movie, um, in the space of seconds.

Hugh Laurie: If you want to know people well, you should see them at 5:00 in the morning. You'll either like them more or less. With these people, it's definitely more.
