Words of wisdom from House MD – Season 6

      He walks in as confident as a man with a cane could walk into a room. And it doesn’t take long to figure out that no matter where he is, and who he is with, he is the smartest man in that room. His name  is Gregory House.

  Did you ever come across someone so intelligent and well spoken that you had to carefully mind everything you say to them, not because you want to impress them, but the exact opposite: you don’t want them to think you are stupid. And in all fairness, you probably aren’t, but you start comparing yourself to this person and you get intimidated and you start stressing yourself over the fact that you can’t name all the bones in the human body or because you simply don’t know anything about politics.

    You would think this experience would be less unpleasing and embarrassing if, let’s say, this person is only a character in a book or an actor in a movie. Because then you could find excuses why you aren’t so smart, witty, literal or logical.

    But for me it’s quite the same, as I simply forget sometimes that behind their mind blowing lines there are probably dozens of writers, producers and researchers.

   A character that had this affect on me was Doctor House, the star of the popular drama with his name (yes, he is that important).  Besides dealing with a lot of personal issues, flaws of character and a complete lack of self control, House is portrayed to be one of the most intelligent doctors of TV , not only when it comes to medicine, but also when it comes to reading people and their behaviour. And you must admit that is a little bit intimidating. (yes, yes, I know he’s just a character)

   And while I found his so called “realistic” view on life way too pessimistic  and a tad dramatic, there is no denying his quick wit, his unapologetically sarcasm and the sad truth behind some of his lines.

Some of them are so good, that they even make awesome clothes!


   So, in honour of his great performance on season 6, here are the best quotes from House M.D. :

Success only last until someone screws them up. Failures are forever.

Things change. Doesn’t mean they get better.

We are all pathetic. That’s what makes everything interesting.

I have to agree with this one. Pathetic is a strong word. But we are all human. We have needs and hopes and silly dreams. We hurt. And we get hurt. We get disappointed. And disappoint others. We get stuck. And we break free. Because we are real. And that is interesting.

 I want to deal with my problems some place where I can get a decent cappuccino.


 I started to connect with one guy but then my propensity for screwing things up overtook me. And then my desire to have fun overcame my propensity.

I went crazy, not stupid.

Typical House humour. Maybe we should learn from him. As my niece said, we all need to be a little more crazy. At least this year.

Started thinking about what you said; about me obsessing; started obsessing about obsessing.

Me, me, me. And you would be lying if you said you never found yourself in this situation. Leave it to House to be so unique, and yet so relatable.

You’re a woman. You can do anything!

Even when said in a sarcastic tone, his words still manage to be inspirational. So girls, if you only remember one quote from this post, let this be the one!

People don’t get what they deserve. They just get what they get. There`s nothing any of us can do about it.

Only half true. Yes, sometimes life happens to you. And bad things happen to good people all the time and vice versa.  But life is more about how you react to what is happening to you. Because that you can control.

We all want the same things: love, forgiveness, chocolate.

Not a House quote. But an important one nevertheless.

We all need secrets. As long as they don’t kill us they keep us safe and warm.


I’m not stressed… beyond the stress induced by you telling me how stressed I am.

And last but not least a line said to House by Cuddy:  I love you. I wish I didn’t. But I can’t help it.

Because, despite his many flaws, he was loved. And maybe after all we don’t need someone who can completely understands us, but someone who wants to.

 And so, I hope to leave you on a positive note.

And know that House would’ve found so many other reasons to mock you, even if you could name all the bones in the human body. It’s just who he is. (Yes, yes, he isn’t real. But Hugh Laurie is, and he is quite remarkable as well).

And because I always like to throw little hints (aka gift ideas) in case my family reads this, here are some amazing House related accessories that I find adorable!

    House is the most self centered, narcissistic, arrogant, SOB on TV. I would probably be a real life, girl version of that guy!

      I did mentioned his shortcomings. But you can’t deny he is intelligent beyond the book smart point. Hehe

    House is the most self centered, narcissistic, arrogant SOB on TV. He does some majorly messed up stuff in season 7 and 8. But as far as being a doctor goes, I’m probably a real life girl version of that. Such is life dearies…

      I was really hoping he had a dream when he .. drove in Cuddy’s living room. It only got worse from there, hehe. But why do you say you are like him?


      1. Diya says:

        I am a doctor at hopkins. I work on the same fundamentals but I somehow manage to keep out of trouble so far. Being able to see through people like that is a bad quality. Sometimes I wish I didn’t know the things I am able to figure out.

        That is impressing. Some things are indeed better left unknown. But at least you can’t be fooled around by others. Life is easier when people stop wearing masks.


      3. Diya says:

        People will always wear masks. Life interesting when they are on but you can see through them. It is just also painful at the same time. Did someone deceive you?

        I assume many people have.Aren’t we all deceiving ourselves sometimes?


      5. Diya says:

        Its different. We do deceive ourselves to escape from our realities but we forgive ourselves. Others are hard to forgive and even more so, forget.. The extent of deception matters a lot too.
        PS. You’re so open, yet so guarded.

        I think so some extend it’s easier to forgive others then forgive ourselves. It all depends on the circumstances. But that must be the smartest thing I’ve heard all day.

    Love House! But season 6 is not the best season for quotes, although you seem to point out some amazing ones. The three first seasons are much better written.
