Memorable Moments


  • House: Nice move, boss. Way to cover your ass.
Dr. Foreman: I just agreed with you.
House: Not because you think I’m right. You’re just taking the safe route. You’re a wuss. Don’t worry; your secret is safe with me.
(yelling in hallway) Hey Wilson.. guess what Foreman just did!
