Dr. House: Okay, this is gonna be a tough case. I have almost no knowledge of alien physiology.
Dr. Hadley: Everyone lies, but there’s an exception to every rule.
Dr. House: Actually, there isn’t. That’s kinda what makes it a rule.
Dr. House: On the other hand, you are now a team, you’ve gotta work together. the simple fact is giving people crap makes people like people. So spend 25 bucks, learn to love.

Dr. Foreman: Did you buy House a present?
Dr. Chase: Why would I?

Dr. House: Oh don’t ruin it, don’t pin this on Christ, he’s got enough nails in him.
