Operator: She ain't no Helen Mirren, but this Queen is for you. Referencing the British actress who won an Oscar for her performance in The Queen (2006). See more »


Dr. Gregory House: First, "Hector does go rug" is a lame anagram. You want a better one for Gregory House? "Huge ego. Sorry." Second, find a new career. You're never gonna sell anybody if you let them control the agenda. And third, I don't owe you anything. I'm not Wilson. I'm not gonna buy a condo just to make you feel better.

House Training, the team works to find the cause of a con artist's sudden illness. After researching her past and her home, the team treats the patient with radiation that destroys her immune system - only to learn she is suffering from a common viral infection. With no immune system and no way to repair the damage - the patient will die in 24 hours. Foreman, who has not had a good relationship with the patient, must now tell her the bad news. On a personal front, Foreman must come to terms with his aging mother. By the end of the day, the patient has died due to a common infection that was missed - by house and the team.
