Top 10 ‘House’-isms

By Greg David


Most scathing comments from TV’s top doc

For the past five seasons of House, Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) has been uttering unforgettable lines at the expense of his friends, co-workers, bosses and even patients.

Nobody is safe from his scathing one-liners, dismissive comments and downright abusive behaviour. And we, as viewers and fans, just can’t get enough.

Thanks to fantastic writing, and wonderful delivery by Laurie, these House-isms keep us in stitches every week. Here are our Top 10 favourites:

“The great thing about telling somebody they’re dying is it tends to focus their priorities. You find out what matters to them. What they’re willing to die for. What they’re willing to lie for.” — from “Three Stories”

“Are you comparing me to God? I mean, it’s great, but so you know, I’ve never made a tree.” — from “Role Model”

“A secret club. What’s the secret, they’re all morons?” — from “Cursed”

“Like I said, there’s no ‘I’ in ‘team.’ There’s a ‘me,’ though, if you jumble it up.” — from “DNR”

“Everybody’s great when they’re half-dead.” — from “Eurphoria, Part 1”

“If you talk to God, you’re religious. If God talks to you, you’re psychotic.” — from “House vs. God”

“Dying people lie, too. Wish they’d worked less, been nicer, opened orphanages for kittens. If you really want to do something, you do it. You don’t save it for a sound bite.” — from “Hunting”

“Union rules. I can’t check this guy’s seeping gonorrhea this close to lunch.” — from “Autopsy”

“Go up his rear and get a smear. Which reminds me, kinda feel like a bagel.” — from “Lines in the Sand”

“Half the people I save don’t deserve a second chance.” — from “Living the Dream”
