Main Characters in this Episode
Dr. Allison Cameron: Why would I keep inviting you over if I didn't want you there?
Dr. Robert Chase: You always kick me out every morning. You never offered me a drawer, never cleared out your closet for me. I was just a visitor.
Dr. James Wilson: Wow! Wha... what?
Dr. Gregory House: Huh... everyone else thought I was kidding.
Dr. Allison Cameron: Hey, why don't we operate on his infarcted leg while we're at it. Who cares if he said "No."
Dr. Gregory House: I was risking my life to avoid becoming a cripple. He's doing it to avoid sunlight and fresh air.
