House: Alone

An office building collapses and House must race against the clock to diagnose Megan, a young woman who survived the disaster but can only communicate through blinking. However, House is without a team after Foreman and Cameron quit and the firing of Chase, so he's forced to talk through his ideas with the hospital janitor. But when Megan's condition worsens, House is pressured to hire a new team. Though reluctant to do so, House begins to realize diagnosing patients by himself is not as easy as he thought.

Episode Quotes
Dr. Hourani: You want to look at vaginas, there are web sites for that.
Dr. House: Do I look made of money?

Dr. Cuddy: Where did you come from?
Dr. House: Apes, if you believe Democrats.

Dr. House: Sometimes I am wrong. I have a gift for observation, for reading people and situations. But sometimes I am wrong. This will be the longest job interview of your life. I will test you in ways that you will often consider unfair, demeaning, and illegal. And you will often be right. Look to your left. Now look to your right. By the end of six weeks, one of you will be gone. As will 28 more of you. Wear a cup.

Dr. House: I'm thinking the broken bones are a response to the building falling on her head.

Dr. House: Are you a fan of symmetry?
Young Doctor: Sure.
Dr. House: Weird, because your eyes are lopsided. And by eyes I mean breasts.
