Probably the most memorable TV character since that guy who did that thing that time.
Funny, offensive, sharp tongued, witty, cruel as hell, pulls no punches, tells it like it is, a jerk, a rule breaker, a junkie and more or less a doctor with no moral standards…but more importantly…always right, always clever, always cool.
“There is not a thin line between love and hate. There is — in fact — a Great Wall of China with armed sentries posted every 20 feet between love and hate.”
“You could think I’m wrong, but that’s no reason to stop thinking?”
“There’s an evolutionary imperative why we give a crap about our family and friends. And there’s an evolutionary imperative why we don’t give a crap about anybody else. If we loved all people indiscriminately, we couldn’t function.”
“In this universe effect follows cause. I’ve complained about it butÃ¢??”
“Occam’s Razor. The simplest explanation is almost always somebody screwed up.”
“Idiopathic, from the Latin meaning we’re idiots cause we can’t figure out what’s causing it.”
“Is this an intervention? You’re a little late, since I’m not using drugs anymore. I am, however, still hooked on phonics.”
“Are you comparing me to God? I mean, it’s great, but just so you know, I’ve never made a tree.”
“Like I always say, there’s no Ã¢??I’ in team…There’s a Ã¢??me,’ though, if you jumble it up.”
“Ideas are not soda cans. Recycling sucks.”
God i love this guy! i try to get home and watch House on Mondays and when i cant then everyone can feel my unhappines the next day…i make sure of it.
sometimes you just have to laugh out loud at what he says and sometimes it takes your brain a while to believe that what you heard him say was really what he did say. and even though i hate him most of the time for how rude he is, I still give him credit for saying what most doctors should
House is so big that he’s even brought up in SCRUBS
