What is bad tempered, blue eyed and has the sexiest limp around?
Ans: A very gorgeous Dr. House.
Yes folks, I am officially addicted to the series House MD. Considering how Game of Thrones has left us for the year with the burning “What’s next?” dilemma and a long, frustrating wait for the next season, this new addiction couldn’t come at a better time! And the best part? There are 8 whole seasons of this medical drama. Hello, marathon 😉
If I had to summarize the plot, it would be a lot like this-
1 maverick, badass, grumpy doctor (with blue eyes!) + A series of nasty symptoms that will not explain themselves = 4o minutes of glued-to-the-screen goodness.
If you’re doing nothing, or even if you are, do watch the good doctor in action. I promise you, it’s worth it. In the meantime, here are some house quotes to give you a flavor of things to come.
“Hello, sick people and their loved ones! In the interest of saving time and avoiding a lot of boring chitchat later, I’m Doctor Gregory House; you can call me “Greg.” I’m one of three doctors staffing this clinic this morning. This ray of sunshine is Doctor Lisa Cuddy. Doctor Cuddy runs this whole hospital, so unfortunately she’s much too busy to deal with you. I am a Board certified diagnostician with a double specialty in infectious disease and nephrology. I am also the only doctor currently employed at this clinic who is forced to be here against his will. That is true, isn’t it? But not to worry, because for most of you, this job could be done by a monkey with a bottle of Motrin. Speaking of which, if you’re particularly annoying, you may see me reach for this: this is Vicodin. It’s mine. You can’t have any. And no, I do not have a pain management problem, I have a pain problem. But who knows? Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe I’m too stoned to tell. So, who wants me? And who would rather wait for one of the other two guys? Okay. Well, I’ll be in Exam Room One if you change your mind.”
―Gregory House introducing himself.
2) House: Did you come for my feelings? Because I left ’em in my other pants.
3) Amber: Hello Greg. And I call you Greg because we’re now social equals.
House: And I call you Cutthroat Bitch because, well, quod erat demonstratum.
Daniel: You want to talk hypocrisy; What about you? You act like you don’t care about anyone, but here you are, saving lives.
House: Solving Puzzles. Saving lives is just collateral damages.
