Quotes

Jack Moriarty: You pretend to buck the system, pretend to be a rebel, claim to hate rules. But all you do is substitute your own rules for society's. And it's a nice, simple rule: tell the blunt, honest truth in the starkest, darkest way. And what will be, will be. What will be, should be. And everyone else is a coward. But you're wrong. It's not cowardly to not call someone an idiot. People aren't tactful or polite just because it's nice. They do it because they've got an ounce of humility. 'Cause they know that they will make mistakes. They know that their actions have consequences. And they know that those consequences are their fault. Why do you want so bad not to be human, House?

Jack Moriarty: You think that the only truth that matters is the truth that can be measured. Good intentions don't count. What's in your heart doesn't count. But a man's life can be measured by how many tears are shed when he dies. Just because you can't measure them, just because you don't want to measure them, doesn't mean it's not real.

Dr. Eric Foreman: [at House's hospital bed] Test was negative.

Dr. Allison Cameron: No trash against the fence.

[he looks at his papers]

Dr. Allison Cameron: Is your leg really better?

Dr. Gregory House: [distracted] Don't worry; I'm sure something else is wrong.

Dr. Robert Chase: We did find blood.

[House looks up and eyes Chase]

Dr. Gregory House: On which side?

Dr. Robert Chase: [walking around] The wrong side.

Dr. Gregory House: First thing that makes sense.

Dr. Robert Chase: The wrong side's the wrong side; it can't make sense.

Dr. Allison Cameron: It'd mess with his brain. Wouldn't cause fever.

[eyes Moriarty]

Dr. Allison Cameron: He's been sleeping a lot lately.

Dr. Gregory House: [looks up at her] You worried? I marked a change of meds on his chart.

[sighs]

Dr. Gregory House: Foreign object. Body wants to get rid of it. It causes the fever.

Dr. Allison Cameron: [in monotone disbelief] Blood's a foreign object?

Dr. Eric Foreman: In the brain lining, it is. Blood dyscrasia means cancer.

Dr. Gregory House: Find it.

Dr. Allison Cameron: All the tests...

Dr. Gregory House: have been negative! What do you do if your trash cans are full? You use your neighbor's trash cans. Except it's still light outside. Your neighbor will see you. So you go out the back way, into an alley, and drop off your trash by their garage.

Dr. Robert Chase: We'll check the lymphatic system in the chest.

[turns and starts walking]

Dr. Gregory House: [looks at him astonished] You got that from trash cans in the alley?

Dr. Robert Chase: [stops to speak] The saliva glands from the tongue are connected to the lymphatic system in the lungs. It's the next lymphatic system over.

Dr. Gregory House: [scans the team] Yeah. Go get lung lymph.

[Everyone leaves]

Jack Moriarty: [woken up] How did he know that?

Dr. Gregory House: I wouldn't have hired him if he wasn't smart.

Jack Moriarty: Right. Because you have nothing but respect for him. Maybe he knew the answer because the question wasn't nearly as tricky as you thought.

[House considers this]

Jack Moriarty: Maybe he's not getting smarter. You're getting dumber.

[cut to a surgery; back to Moriarty and a fake sleeping House]

Jack Moriarty: You pretend to buck the system. Pretend to be a rebel. You claim to hate rules. But all you do is substitute your own rules for society's. And it's a nice, simple rule. Tell the blunt, honest truth in the starkest, darkest way and what will be will be. What will be should be. And everyone else is a coward. But you're wrong. It's not cowardly to not call someone an idiot. People aren't tactful or polite because it's nice. They do it because they've got an ounce of humility. Because they know that they will make mistakes and they know that their actions have consequences and they know that those consequences are their fault. Why do you want so bad not to be human, House?

[Cameron and Foreman come back in]

Jack Moriarty: Oh, he's awake.

Dr. Allison Cameron: House, we need to talk to you.

Dr. Gregory House: [eyes still closed] How the hell did you know I was awake?

Jack Moriarty: Your nostrils flare when you sleep.

Jack Moriarty: [in House's office, after figuring out which Doctor is House] I was a patient of yours.

Dr. Gregory House: Oh, well, if you want to leave chocolates downstairs...

[pulls out a gun and shoots House in the gut]

Jack Moriarty: [the team tries to help House] Stay! Stay away from him!

Jack Moriarty: Shocking isn't it? Who'd want to hurt *you*?

[shoots House again]

Dr. Gregory House: I got shot. Diagnostically boring. Big tongue, on the other hand - endlessly entertaining.

Dr. Gregory House: He's got a temperature of 103.

Dr. Robert Chase: Why do we care?

Dr. Gregory House: Because we're humans, we work like that.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [enters Exam Room One, where Cuddy is with a patient] Working

Dr. Gregory House: We need to talk.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [turns to face him] Get back to the ICU! Who un-cuffed you?

Dr. Gregory House: [holding his surgical papers] Why would a surgeon administer Ketamine?

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [hesitates for a bit] Who showed you your surgical file?

Dr. Gregory House: How do you know it's mine?

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: Because your patient hasn't had surgery and you don't care about anybody else.

Dr. Gregory House: My anesthesia was almost nonexistent

[raises eyebrows]

Dr. Gregory House: , and yet I wasn't awake. For some reason, somebody decided to put me in a dissociative coma instead of just putting me out.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: There are plenty of reasons to use...

Dr. Gregory House: Fine. I'll go beat the truth out of my surgeon.

[bitter]

Dr. Gregory House: Gillick, right?

[turns to leave; Cuddy watches him go and observes him walking down the hallway, sans the cane assisting him; sentimental music plays as he walks]

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [still staring emotionally] It - worked.

[House turns shocked and confused]

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: There's a clinic in Germany; they've been treating chronic pain by inducing comas and letting the mind basically reboot itself. There's about a 50% chance your pain will come back, which of course means thee is a 50% chance that it won't.

Dr. Gregory House: [slowly turns to anger and walks toward her] You had no right...

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: To heal you?

Dr. Gregory House: You messed with my brain!

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [angry] Why are you so upset? Are you experiencing any neurological symptoms? Dizziness? Tremors? Hallucinations?

Dr. Gregory House: No.

[mouth twitches]

Dr. Gregory House: It's a point of principle.

[turns to leave]

Dr. Gregory House: [Wilson is slowly walking a treadmill] What if it was the surgery?

Dr. James Wilson: What if it was the fact that you tore out your stitches and lost two pints of blood?

Dr. Gregory House: [thinks] Why did Gillick give me ketamine during my surgery?

[looks at Wilson in hope for an answer]
