Dr. Gregory House: [to a waiting room full of people] Who is here for a runny nose?
[a few people raise their hands]
Dr. Gregory House: It's a cold! It'll get better. Go home!
[Some people start to leave]
Dr. Gregory House: Those of you who have stayed obviously do not have colds. You'll be assigned a doctor, who is not me 'cause I'm tired of wiping crotches.

User Reviews

shows the diversity of the complicated man and doctor that make up house
31 May 2009 | by shanemick9See all my reviews

I enjoyed the episode and the dialog. I think it was very well written. It shows us viewers that House has a side that he constantly struggles to keep hidden; which reveals his true reason for his misery. It is a breakthrough episode which will lead to House showing more humanity as the episodes continue to still knock our socks off of us as highly interested viewers. I hope that the future episodes continue to be as wonderful as this one. I find the complexity of the characters and the complexity of each episode to be very well balanced. I hope David Shore can continue to write more episodes with this terrific balance and also bring in the wonderful guest stars that make this show the highly loved show that it is.
