Dr. Lisa Cuddy : [to Wilson] Tell House the patient is about to kill the doctor.
Dr. James Wilson : She says the patient...
Dr. Gregory House : I heard. What've you got?
Dr. James Wilson : Well, Cuddy just raised and uhh...
Dr. Gregory House : You're paired.
Dr. James Wilson : What?
Dr. Gregory House : Nines?
Dr. James Wilson : [looks shocked and looks around to see if House is standing behind him] How do you know?
Dr. Gregory House : Anything lower, you wouldn't sound so excited. Jacks or higher, your voice sounds like Debbie from accounting is sitting in your lap.
Dr. Gregory House : [to Cuddy] How's it going? You win?
Dr. Lisa Cuddy : I got called away. By the angry parents of a patient. There are three of you here, none of you had the sense to stop him, to pick up a phone and call me.
Dr. Gregory House : I told them you'd signed off. The parents are mad because their kid is dying. That's understandable, but if he doesn't die, they won't be mad anymore.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy : Well, if he's brain-damaged, they might still be a little ticked.
Dr. Gregory House : I had to do it to save him.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy : You had to do it to diagnose Esther. You may have killed a 6-year-old because you're obsessed with a woman who's been dead for 12 years. Sometimes you lose, House. You're not God!
Dr. Gregory House : He's not dead yet.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy : No, but you're done with him. It's my case now. Go home, go ride your motorcycle, go brood in a dark room. Just don't go near Ian again.
