Dr. Wilson: Who's here? The one you're pretending is your father? Good pick, he looks like Sean Connery. So back, when you were devising this fantasy, did you tell your father. "Dad, I refuse to recognize your existence because I have chosen James Bond as my dad."
House: I used different words.

House Quotes

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