THE TEAM TREATS A WOUNDED HEART ON AN ALL-NEW "HOUSE"
MONDAY, MARCH 14, ON FOX
A young professional champion bullfighter is admitted for treatment after being attacked by a bull. After conducting multiple inconclusive tests, the team enlists House's advice outside of the hospital while he attends to a few issues away from the case. Back in the hospital, the bullfighter's condition continues to worsen, but with disappearing symptoms and the patient's more frequent mini-seizures, the team's last option is risky open-heart surgery. Meanwhile, Masters develops a crush on their bullfighter patient much to Taub's surprise in the all-new "Out of the Chute" episode of HOUSE airing Monday, March 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Quotes, Quotations, Dialogue, Scenes:
Wilson tracks House down to his hotel and suggests that he "Maybe talk to someone."
"I'm not an idiot. I know I need help."
"Okay, that's great." At first Wilson is mollified but then he thinks about it. "I meant like a counselor."
"But you meant a hooker."
"Yeah. Baby steps."
Wilson goes to Cuddy to complain that she had at first, "told him you didn't want him to change."
"And I was wrong."
"You don't know that. You thought you were going to die. Do you really think that was the right time to make this kind of decision?"
"No. But I thought about it. A lot. And I haven't changed my mind."
"He thought you were going to die. Nobody knows the right way to react in that situation. Just give him another chance. He deserves it."
"I know. But this isn't about what he deserves. When things go wrong, I don't want to hope that I'm not alone. I want to know it. With House every time I need him to step up, he's just never going to be that. It's not his fault. It's who he is. I should have known it. This is my fault."
Wilson has gone back to talk to House, and as they stand on House's balcony, Wilson says, "It's understandable."
"I hate when you do that. You respond to what You think I'm thinking because you think that I think like you do. It's insulting and annoying."
"You're scared because nothing excites you. Fun doesn't excite you. Puzzles don't excite you. What's left? And I was saying you're right. You're upset. You're depressed. Everything's going to taste a little worse right now. But it will pass."
"It's understandable. You're scared because you think I'm falling apart. And you're trying to convince yourself that you're overeating."
House decides on a risky way of fixing the patient's problem and Cuddy confronts him. "I think maybe you're looking for something that can excite you. Fill a void. And it's affecting your judgement."
"You're right. I am. But my damaged, depressed, drug-addled judgment is still better than yours or any other doctor's in this hospital. And my team is going to do this procedure and save his life. So you can either have security arrest me and my team or you can get the hell out of my way." He pauses and watches her face. "And she caves."
