House: But my free will? I never leave home without it. This is a paraphrase of the popular "Don't Leave Home Without It" ad campaign used by American Express from 1975 to 1987. See more »


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.

Amazing actor, annoying character
3 June 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

David Morse is an amazing actor, and it makes even easier to hate Tritter. The man is much more unethical than House and has started a witch hunt that has by far gone beyond the original goal to make House regret what he did to Tritter in the clinic. And when it seemed the situation will lead to an end, Tritter shows clearly how much a son of a b... he is...

I'm still watching the show and don't know how it is going to end, but I agree this kind of extra-patient conflict is very interesting to keep the show from being boring. A long time in season 2 this element was absent and House M.D. lacked punch.
