Just when I thought I already finished all of Season 1, I discovered that I actually missed 12 episodes. I know, I am an idiot. House MD is distinct from all the other medical dramas I’ve seen so naturally I had to know what crippled the brilliant man, what it took to be his patient, best friend, protégé, and even girlfriend.
Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) had me when he said that “everybody lies” because I am a hundred percent with him on this. People lie to feel better about themselves. We lie to people we don’t like because we want to impress them with things that aren’t true. We lie to our friends because we want to be accepted by them. We lie to our bosses because it would be unprofessional to hit them up with “No, it’s not okay for me to work on someone else’s job just because they ditched workday today.”
