I obsess over little things.
‘Accustomed as I was to my friend’s amazing powers in the use of disguises, I had to look three times before I was certain that it was indeed he.’
Sir, you are remarkable in all incarnations.
This is perfection.
And omfg, is that Gus and Shawn in front of the Watsons??
I LOVE YOU.
“I am incapable of turning away from a responsibility. My friends take advantage of that fact far too often.”
Sure, most of the time Wilson’s the selfless one, and House is the bastard who always takes advantage. But it is the fact that House’s genuine acts of self-sacrifice are so rare that make them all the more precious.
“I don’t owe you anything. Our entire relationship has been about you. My dying is about me.”
When Wilson disgruntledly expresses his anger at House’s seemingly selfish want for the former to live as long as possible despite the additional pain (both psychological and physical) he’d have to go through, we feel sorry for Wilson, the victim. We feel that House is, again, being the self-centred jerk he always is, even while his best friend is dying. But we often forget that House, too, is a victim of Wilson’s cancer; Wilson isn’t the only one suffering.
“It’s a basic truth of the human condition, that everybody lies. The only variable is about what.”
House doesn’t lie without reason. He usually lies when he has sometime to gain from it, but not here. Not now. He lies to Wilson to give his best friend hope and assurance; little does Wilson know that House is feeling the pain on his behalf. We all know how precious House’s Vicodin is to him, and yet, he engages in this act of self-sacrifice, this act of taking on the burden of pain so as to eleviate the pain of his dying best friend. What House fears most is pain; he is willing to face up to his greatest fear and endure the pain in order to give Wilson the hope of recovery.
Here, we see a different side of House; we see a side of House we always knew existed deep down inside him, but never often got to see. This is, in my opinion, what makes this scene so beautiful.
House isn’t always the selfish bastard he is made out to be through the eight seasons; House knows how to love a friend.
“why is elementary even a thing? i bet sir arthur conan doyle is rolling in his grave!” she hits ‘create post’ and feels the satisfaction wash over her. that’d show them. sir arthur conan doyle would be horrified to see the monstrosity that his masterpiece was about to become.
she turns when she hears a sound behind her, and finds herself face to face with the spirit of sir arthur conan doyle himself.
“why…” he says, and his voice is broken by the tears that he is holding back.
she understands the feeling well; elementary has upset her to the point of tears before too. “i know,” she says. “i can’t believe it’s real either. they’re ruining the name of sherlock holmes and totally damaging the brand! moffat’s version is brilliant, we don’t need another bad american tv cop show when moffat’s taking such good care of your baby.”
sir arthur conan doyle falls to the ground, a broken man. his body is shaking as he sobs, and he says, “why won’t you just let him die already… it’s been too long… why can’t holmes just stay dead…”
The doctor is performing an abortion. The baby that is supposed to be terminated just grabbed the doctor’s finger.
I want to punch you in the face.

[House talks to Concerned Mom who thinks that her daughter has epilepsy]
Dr. House: In actuality all your little girl is doing is… saying yoo hoo to the hoo hoo.
Concerned Mom: She’s what?
Dr. House: Marching the penguin… ya ya-ing the sisterhood… finding Nemo?
Little Girl Patient: [giggles] That was funny.
Dr. House: It’s called gratification disorder, sort of a misnomer. If one was unable to gratify oneself, that would be a disorder.
Concerned Mom:[covering little girl’s ears] Are you saying she’s masturbating?
Dr. House: [making fun of the mother by talking out of the corner of his mouth so the little girl supposedly won’t see that he’s talking] I was trying to be discreet. There’s a child in the room.
Concerned Mom: Oh, this is horrifying.
Dr. House: Epilepsy is horrifying. Teach your girl about privacy and she’ll be fine.
This is what every mother needs to know about their child… brought to you by Dr. House. Masturbation in children is normal - it starts in infancy and continues throughout the lifespan. There is no need to tell your child to stop because it is perfectly natural. Just make sure that they know it is something that should be done in a private place and time, rather than a public one.
