While Dr. House is having a conversation with Dr. Wilson at around 7 minutes into the episode, House mentions a "guitar player from an English band", and moments after reveals it as being Pink Floyd. That is a reference to Syd Barrett, former guitar player, who left the band in 1968, due to his deteriorating mental condition - he was also diagnosed with schizoprhenia. See more

[Lucy is reading aloud "Her Praise" by W.B. Yeats
I will talk no more of books or the long war / But walk by the dry thorn until I have found/ Some beggar sheltering from the wind, and there/ Manage the talk until her name come round./ If there be rags enough he will know her name/ And be well pleased remembering it, for in the old days/ Though she had young men's praise and old men's blame/ Among the poor both the old and young gave her praise.
