Dr. Allison Cameron: According to Freud, and I'm paraphrasing, instinct of love toward an object demands a mastery to obtain it, and if a person feels they can't control the object or feel threatened by it, they act negatively toward it. Like an eighth-grade boy punching a girl.
Dr. Gregory House: I treat you like garbage, so I must really like you. Given your Freudian theory, what does it mean if I start being nice to you?
Dr. Allison Cameron: That you're getting in touch with your feelings.
Dr. Gregory House: Hmm. So there's absolutely nothing I can do to make you think ...

John Cho and Peter Graves, of all people!
28 March 2006 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

John Cho plays a masochistic soul suffering from a series of strokes. House and crew suspect the choking he regularly gets from his very attractive if slightly creepy dominatrix companion may be causing his problems. The answer lies elsewhere, sort of. Cho is very convincing as a sad sack who can't live without being told what to do. Peter Graves does a clever turn as a man on Viagra who is conflicted about his renewed vigor. His role is more of a cameo than a real part, but his brief appearance ends with one heck of a punch line that even House could not see coming. Lots of other fun stuff happens in this episode. And of course Cameron is back big time. By now, House has convinced Cameron her adoration of him is misguided. What a show!
