Dr. Gregory House: They're out there. Doctors, lawyers, postal workers. Some of them doing great. Some of them doing lousy. Are you going to base your whole life on who you got stuck in a room with?

Eve: I'm going to base this moment on who I'm stuck in a room with. It's what life is. It's a series of rooms and who we get stuck in those rooms with adds up to what our lives are.

Dr. Gregory House: If you believe in eternity, then life is irrelevant. The same way a bug is irrelevant in comparison to the universe.

Eve: If you don't believe in eternity, then what you do here is irrelevant.

Dr. Gregory House: Your actions here are all that matters.

Eve: Then nothing matters. There's no ultimate consequences. I couldn't live like that.

Dr. Gregory House: So you need to think that the guy who did this to you is gonna be punished.

Eve: I need to know that it all means something. I need that comfort.

Dr. Gregory House: Yeah. Are you feeling comfortable? You feeling good right now? Feel warm inside?

Eve: I was raped. What's your excuse?

Dr. Wilson: Tell her the truth.

Dr. Allison Cameron: [Cut to Cameron] Tell her your life has been good.

Dr. Gregory House: It hasn't been.

Dr. Allison Cameron: Tell her anyway. She wants hope. She wants to know that what happened to her wasn't the norm. Things can be okay, which means maybe they can be okay for her again.

Dr. Eric Foreman: [Cut to Foreman] Tell her your life sucked.

Dr. Gregory House: It didn't.

Dr. Eric Foreman: Tell her anyway. She wants to know she's not alone. She wants to know she's gonna survive this, that other people have been through this and worse and come out the other end. She wants to know she's going to heal. Act like... you healed.

Dr. Robert Chase: [Cut to Chase] Tell her... Keep her asleep.

Dr. Gregory House: Thanks. You've all been a huge help.

Dr. Gregory House: Wake up. It's not as bad as what happened to you, I don't think. I don't know what happened to you. But given how lousy you're responding, I assume it was worse than getting abused by your grandmother.

Eve: What did she do to you?

Dr. Gregory House: My parents traveled a lot, and they'd leave me with her. She liked things the way she liked them. And she believed in discipline. She was right, I suppose, because I hardly ever screwed up when she was around. Too scared of being forced to sleep in the yard or take a bath in ice. Your turn.

Eve: Your parents, they... they never stopped her?

Dr. Gregory House: I never told them.

Dr. Gregory House: [to a patient overly concerned with personal grooming] I'm wearing a rumpled shirt and I forgot to brush my hair this week. You've got Athlete's Foot in your nose. I'm ready to be judged.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: I'll pay you $10 for every patient you diagnose without touching. You pay me $10 for every one you have to touch.

Dr. Gregory House: You're making this into a game for me from which I can only conclude this isn't a game for you.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: No.

Dr. Gregory House: Why? You think if I deal with enough people, I'll find some humanity?

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: Yes.

Dr. Allison Cameron: [Cameron and Foreman are giving House advice] You need to get her to talk about what happened.

Dr. Eric Foreman: No, he doesn't.

Dr. Allison Cameron: Pretending it didn't happen won't...

Dr. Eric Foreman: Wrong! Pretending this didn't happen is the best thing she could possibly do.

Dr. Allison Cameron: She's gotta make this real.

Dr. Eric Foreman: You know what we should be trying to make real, the process? The few decent moments in our lives, not the crap.

Dr. Allison Cameron: Maybe you're right, except there's no way that she can pretend this didn't happen so she has no choice but to process it.

Dr. Gregory House: You gotta get me out of this. There's nothing to diagnose. There's nothing...

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: You only tested her for STDs?

Dr. Gregory House: I had seven morons who forgot their raincoats. It's all they asked for, so I didn't waste the lab's time, why?

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: I wasted their time. She's pregnant.

Eve: What was?

Dr. Gregory House: It wasn't my grandmother, but it was true.

Dr. Gregory House: I'd like to hear it.

Eve: [to House] I just want to talk.

Dr. Gregory House: About nothing.

[Eve nods her head]

Dr. Gregory House: We talk about nothing, nothing will change.

Eve: It might.

Dr. Gregory House: How?

Eve: Time. Time changes everything.

Dr. Gregory House: It's what people say. It's not true. Doing things changes things. Not doing things leaves things exactly as they were.

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.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [to House] You are going back to the clinic or jail.

Dr. Gregory House: You perjured yourself to keep me out of jail. How are you...?

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: I only did that because I thought you were getting clean.

Dr. Gregory House: So it's do clinic duty or go to jail.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: Yes.

Dr. Gregory House: Then it'll be finish your paperwork or go to jail. Help with fundraising or go to jail. Do your job or go to jail. I think I'd rather go to jail.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [to Eve] We've assigned another doctor to your care.

Eve: I didn't mean to upset Dr. House.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: He knows that. That's not why we're doing this.

Eve: I'd like to keep being treated by him.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: W... why?

Eve: Just do.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: Trust me, it's better if you deal with somebody who specializes...

Eve: I'm fine.

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: You told Dr. House it's been less than a week. You haven't told anyone other than him. Emotionally, you're still...

Eve: You know what I'm dealing with? You know what I'm going through?

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: No. You think Dr. House does? I'm not suggesting either one of us be your doctor. Dr. Stone is psychiatri...

Eve: If Dr. House is too busy, I can wait.

Dr. Gregory House: [to House] Why do you want me?

Dr. Gregory House: [shrugging] I don't wanna treat you.

Eve: [to House] Why don't you wanna treat me anymore?

Dr. Gregory House: I never wanted to treat you. Fact that you were raped holds no interest for me. It's nothing personal. There's nothing to treat. You're physically healthy.

Eve: Okay.

[House nods his and gets up to leave]

Eve: But I want you to be my doctor.

Dr. Gregory House: [turns to Eve] Why?

Eve: [shakes her head] I don't know.

Dr. Gregory House: You gotta have a reason. Everything has a reason.

Eve: I trust you.

Dr. Gregory House: Ah, see, that's a bad reason 'cause I'll lie to you. I'll tell you anything just to get you out of here.

Eve: I don't care. I wanna talk to you.

Dr. Gregory House: Look, you were raped. All control was taken away from you. You're trying to find that control again. You want me because I don't want you.

Eve: I'm raping you?

Dr. Gregory House: In a very non-invasive, more annoying than trauma...

Eve: [yelling] Get the hell out of here!

Dr. Gregory House: I'll send in Dr. Stone.

[leaves the room]

Dr. Gregory House: [to Cuddy about Eve] How long has Stone been in with her?

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: Are you concerned?

Dr. Gregory House: You know how many people get raped everyday?

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: So it's common, therefore boring.

Dr. Gregory House: We were to care for every person suffering on the planet, life would shut down.

Dr. Gregory House: [to Eve] Why do you want me?

Eve: I don't know.

Dr. Gregory House: Tried to kill yourself 'cause you couldn't talk to me. Must have a reason.

Eve: Why's there always have to be a reason? Can't we just talk?

Dr. Gregory House: There's a phone. Talk to a friend, family member. Call the police.

[Eve sighs and turns her head away from House]

Dr. Gregory House: You wanna talk about what happened to you?

Eve: No.

Dr. Gregory House: Talk about your STD meds?

Eve: No.

Dr. Gregory House: You don't really seem to wanna talk.

Eve: No, I do.

Dr. Gregory House: 'Bout what?

Eve: I don't know. Anything.

Dr. Gregory House: The weather? You were raped and you want to talk about the weather?

Eve: [nods] Yeah.

Dr. Gregory House: I'm not gonna talk to you about the weather.

Eve: [When it's discovered that Eve is pregnant] I don't wanna terminate.

Dr. Gregory House: You wanna keep the baby.

Eve: Abortion is murder.

Dr. Gregory House: True.

[nods]

Dr. Gregory House: It's a life and you should end it.

Eve: Every life is sacred.

Dr. Gregory House: Come on, talk to me. Don't quote me bumper stickers.

Eve: It's true.

Dr. Gregory House: It's meaningless.

Eve: It means every life matters to God.

Dr. Gregory House: Not to me, not to you. Judging by the number of natural disasters, not to God either.

Eve: You're just being argumentative.

Dr. Gregory House: Yeah! I do do that. What about Hitler? Is his life sacred to God? Father of your child? Is his life sacred to you?

Eve: My child isn't Hitler.

Dr. Gregory House: Either every life is sacred or...

Eve: [shouts] Stop it! I don't wanna chat about philosophy!

Dr. Gregory House: You're not killing your rape baby because of a philosophy.
