Dr. Darryl Nolan: Have you gotten anybody *else* mad at you?
Dr. Gregory House: Well yeah. That's why I call it an ordinary week.
Dr. Gregory House: I'm not stressed beyond the stress induced by telling you how stressed I am.
Dr. Darryl Nolan: So where were you thinking during all this?
Dr. Gregory House: That, it was a strange position to be in. At that moment, she was more comfortable with me than with her husband. And he was picking up on it.
Dr. Darryl Nolan: Umk, that's interesting. You present yourself as uh, not giving a damn about other's emotions, but your actions indication otherwise. You dismiss Alvie's story about his mother, but you cared enough to schedule a hearing?
Dr. Gregory House: I cared for eight seconds. Then I got distracted.
Dr. Darryl Nolan: It looks like you fell on the tip of someone's boot.
Dr. Gregory House: ...I said something that someone objected to.
Dr. Darryl Nolan: Well, if you don't remember then how can you - ?
Dr. Gregory House: That's usually the way it is. Someone hits me. People who kick you when you're down are jerks, but they're generally not irrational jerks.
Dr. Gregory House: God's sakes Wilson! You really span the chasm between wishy and washy. If you're gonna be an ass, be an ass. Stick with it!
Dr. James Wilson: Sam likes you.
Dr. Gregory House: She wants me to move out.
Dr. James Wilson: No. I want you to move out. I didn't know things with Sam would happen so quickly. I didn't - I don't want to make mistakes here. I've made a lot of mistakes.
Dr. Gregory House: Patients are boring, as people. This one, I'm sure, was no exception. But her situation was interesting. Besides I was still avoiding Wilson. No better way to avoid than leaving the hospital.
Dr. Darryl Nolan: What's Taub doing in my imaginary version of a scene with Wilson and Cuddy?
Dr. Gregory House: Your version needed to be ended. Because it's crap. It's all sweetness and light, and... faith that I'm going to choose the right path. Yeah, that sounds like Wilson.
Dr. Darryl Nolan: You were willing to punish the husband and patient because you identified with him. He was also losing someone he loved.
Dr. Gregory House: I'm not going to go out and get hammered because of a woman I'm not even with is moving in with someone. That'd be pathetic... To Hell with this! When I first came to you, I told you I wanted to be happy, and I followed your advice. Instead I'm miserable. How is this working for me?
Dr. Darryl Nolan: It takes time.
Dr. Gregory House: [to Dr. Nolan] What ever the answer is, you don't have it...
