"House M.D.: Fools for Love (#3.5)" (2006)
Michael Tritter: I don't wanna sue you.
Dr. Gregory House: Good.
Michael Tritter: I want to beat the crap out of you.
Dr. Gregory House: Less good.

Michael Tritter: [to House] I was waiting two hours out there.
Dr. Gregory House: Fascinating. Have you considered a career as a memoirist?

Michael Tritter: [to House] Just take a swab and get it tested, OK?
Dr. Gregory House: Sorry. Already met this month's quota of useless tests for stubborn idiots.

Dr. Gregory House: [to Tritter] I'm a cripple who works in a hospital. You don't think I've got a valid prescription?
Michael Tritter: Arrogant son-of-a-bitch like you? Oh, I bet you didn't bother.


"House M.D.: Finding Judas (#3.9)" (2006)
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [to Tritter] My head of Oncology had to shut down. My entire staff are afraid to make a move without covering their ass.
Michael Tritter: I think you're angry at the wrong person.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: You think Dr. Wilson deserved to have his assets seized? His entire practice ruined?
Michael Tritter: No.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: So, you just don't care?
Michael Tritter: This is how I get what I want. I put pressure... on people, and if it doesn't work on Wilson, it'll work on you.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: You punish the innocent.
Michael Tritter: None of you are innocent. Not one of you, not one of you has told me the truth about Dr. House.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: The pills allow him to cope with the pain.
Michael Tritter: No, the pills distort reality. He's an addict.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: He's not out robbing a liquor store or...
Michael Tritter: Look, he's treating people. He needs to find a different way to cope before he kills somebody, if he hasn't done that already.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: If you're right, he has a medical problem. It should be dealt with by doctors, not by the...!
Michael Tritter: Well, it's not being dealt with by doctors. Doctors are covering it up. The whole point of the criminal justice system is to make things right when everything else fails. With all due respect, you have failed.

Dr. Allison Cameron: Gonna break out the rubber hoses, the bright lights? I'm not gonna testify just because I have to borrow lunch money.
Michael Tritter: I know. Women don't give up on guys that they're in love with.
Dr. Allison Cameron: I'm not in love with House.
Michael Tritter: A guy as unhinged and unethical does what he wants with no concern for others, but you stand by him.
Dr. Allison Cameron: That can't just be loyality and respect?
Michael Tritter: No.
Dr. Allison Cameron: I'm a girl, so I must be in love with him.
Michael Tritter: Not because you're a girl. Because 10 years ago, you got an "A" in calculus until you ratted yourself out, showed your professor a mistake he missed, because you married a man...
Dr. Allison Cameron: [angry tone] Don't go there!
Michael Tritter: You used to be someone who did the right thing. House has changed you. Do you think it's all been for the better?
[Cameron walks out of the room]


"House M.D.: Words and Deeds (#3.11)" (2007)
Michael Tritter: Cuddy wouldn't get off the phone until I promised I'd come and see for myself... I gotta admit, this move I did not expect.
Dr. Gregory House: Yeah, well don't tell anyone, but the photos of smiling people in the brochures - it's just marketing.
Michael Tritter: Well, you're obviously making an effort. So I suppose the next step is for me to... talk to the DA.
Dr. Gregory House: Which you have no intention of doing.
Michael Tritter: No.
Dr. Gregory House: So words mean nothing, actions mean nothing, what the hell is left?
Michael Tritter: [shrugs] Hmph.
Dr. Gregory House: You son of a bitch! What about your words, your actions? "Gotta get House cleaned up, gotta get him to show some humility," but when it comes to actually doing something, you proved that all you care about is bitch-slapping a guy who refused to kiss your ass.
Michael Tritter: You ever trust an addict? You ever give one the benefit of the doubt? How many times did it work out for yo...
Dr. Gregory House: Yeah, yeah, yeah, I get it. So you were screwed over by your wife, your mother, your partner. But you keep sending them Christmas cards, while you take it out on everyone else.
Michael Tritter: No more Christmas cards. No, I learned, people like you, even your actions lie.


"House M.D.: Son of Coma Guy (#3.7)" (2006)
Michael Tritter: [stops Cameron by showing her his badge] Mind if we talk a few minutes?
[cut to semi-dark private room]
Michael Tritter: How many pills would you say Dr. House takes a day?
Dr. Allison Cameron: I'm uncomfortable setting a number.
Michael Tritter: Hmm. Try.
Dr. Allison Cameron: Six.
Michael Tritter: A day.
[Cameron nods]
Michael Tritter: Has he ever had you... write prescriptions for him?
Dr. Allison Cameron: No. What is it you want me to say? That he takes too many pills and is a danger to the hospital or he takes too few because he's selling them on the side? Either one is ridiculous.
Michael Tritter: I meant the former.
Dr. Allison Cameron: You're wrong.
Michael Tritter: Can I ask what Dr. House has done to deserve your loyalty? He's not known as a great boss. He's not even much of a friend. I mean, look how he left Dr. Wilson holding the bag.
[Cameron's expression changes]
Michael Tritter: It's odd. You don't know about that. You defend him, and he won't even tell you what's happening in his life.
[pager beeps; Cameron leaves Tritter off-camera]


"House M.D.: Merry Little Christmas (#3.10)" (2006)
Michael Tritter: Merry Christmas.
Dr. Gregory House: And a Happy Go-to-Hell.
