Dr. Gregory House: [to the Senator] Some day there will be a black president. Some day there will be a gay president. Maybe there will even be a gay, black president. But one combination I do not see happening is gay, black, and dead. You need to stop lying to me.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: Why do you have to make everything so dramatic?
Dr. Gregory House: Because I'm a very high-strung little lapdog. Ruff ruff ruff, rarr, ruff!
Senator Gary H. Wright: No, don't get excited he's right I uh, I won't win.
Dr. Gregory House: Then why run?
Senator Gary H. Wright: Oh I see your point being the only way to make a difference is to win every fight.
Dr. Gregory House: [to Cameron] You are the most naive atheist I've ever met.
Dr. Wilson: [House says he believes a politician patient] "Everybody lies" - except *politicians*? House, I believe you're a romantic. You didn't just *believe* him, you believed *in* him. You wanna come over tonight and watch old movies and - cry? Dr. Cameron's getting to you. Well, I guess you can't be around that much niceness and not get any on you.
Dr. Wilson: [to House] Only you could feel like crap about doing something good.
Senator Gary H. Wright: You, ah, a Republican, or you just hate all politicians?
Dr. Gregory House: I just find being forced to sit though drivel annoying.
Dr. Allison Cameron: [giving differential diagnosis] Idiopathic T-cell deficiency?
Dr. Gregory House: "Idiopathic", from the Latin, meaning we're idiots 'cause we can't figure out what's causing it.
Dr. Gregory House: [to Cameron] Just trying to figure out what makes you tick. I am not warm and fuzzy and you are basically a stuffed animal made by grandma.
