Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: Who would you fire?
Dr. Allison Cameron: No one.
Dr. Gregory House: Not an option.
Dr. Allison Cameron: If everyone took a paycut and put in a few more hours, we could all stay for the same amount of money.
Dr. Gregory House: Figures you'd try to come up with a solution where no one gets hurt. The problem is the world doesn't work that way just 'cause you want it to.
Dr. Allison Cameron: Figures you'd stall and refuse to deal with the issue. Problem is, the world doesn't go away just because you want it to.

I'll have a huge scar. I won't be able to wear a bikini!
6 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The pressure increases on House to fire one of his staff. Unfortunately, it isn't going to be easy, as any choice he makes is going to be rejected by Vogler. It is a battle for control and Vogler does not intend to lose.

I the meantime House has to solve the problem of a morbidly obese 10-year-old girl who has lesions that will require a double mastectomy.

He also sees a woman in the clinic with a 30-lb tumor, who refuses to have it removed because it will leave a scar. Her excuse is blown by House and that problem is easily solved.

He still has to fire someone.
