House: Daddy's Boy

A recent Princeton graduate ends up in internal shock while attending a frat party. With his father by his side, it's clear that Carnell is not being too truthful about his life. House soon thinks that his symptoms could be caused by a recent Spring Break trip the young man took. Meanwhile, House is actually having his own issues with his father and keeps trying to get out of a dinner engagement with both his parents who have just arrived for a visit.

Episode Quotes
Dr. Wilson: You used me to avoid seeing your parents.
House: What do you care?
Dr. Wilson: i don't - I just thought it might be interesting to find out why.
House: You could have just asked.
Dr. Wilson: You would have lied.
House: You would have believed me…which would have kept us both happy.

House: Mom, it’s great to see you.
Blythe House: Oh, Greg, don’t lie.

Dr. Wilson: Now, be a grown-up and either tell Mommy and Daddy you don’t want to see them, or I’m picking you up at seven for dinner.
House: What do you mean? You just said…?
Dr. Wilson: I lied. I’ve been lying to you in increasing amounts ever since I told you you looked good unshaved a year ago. It’s a little experiment, you know, to see where you’d draw the line.

Dr. Wilson: If you have the money then why did you need the loan?
House: I didn’t. I just wanted to see if you’d give it to me. I’ve been borrowing increasing amounts ever since you lent me $40 a year ago. Umm, a little experiment to see where you’d draw the line.
Dr. Wilson: You’re…you’re trying to objectively measure how much I value our friendship.
House: It’s five grand – you got nothing to be ashamed of.

House: Get me out of this and I’ll tell you who started the rumor about you being a transsexual.
Dr. Cuddy: There is no such rumor.
House: There will be...unless you get me out of this dinner.

House: Taddy. Love the name. I never had a dog.
