Episode Quotes
Dr. House: Let’s take a vote. Who thinks that niceness is not a symptom? (everyone else raises their hand) And who thinks that their vote counts? (raises his hand)

Dr. House: Taub and Thirty-One…
Thirteen: Thirty-One?
Dr. House: Oh, I’m sorry, I thought that either way was good for you.

Dr. Wilson: It was my fault, I had to take a shower.
Amber: Which was my fault.
Dr. House: I had to take a dump. Anything else I don’t need to leave before you leave?

Dr. Foreman: Mocking me saves lives?
Dr. House: The hospital will probably build you a statue one day. You know, with a “kick me” sign on the back. You know, when you think about it, the more I mock you the more it shows I have respect for you.
Dr. Foreman: Or you made up that B.S. because you like humiliating me.
Dr. House: Wouldn’t rule that out completely.

Dr. Taub: Maybe we just put Hitler on Ritalin.
Dr. Cameron: Are you comparing House to Hitler?
Dr. Chase: Oh god.
Dr. Cameron: Just because I don’t think he’s Hitler doesn’t mean I slept with him. I don’t sleep with everyone who’s better than Hitler.
