Quotes, Quotations, Dialogue, Scenes:
  • House walks into Wilson's office at the end and ignores him to talk about himself. "Adams defied me. There's one more zealit in the world. And Dominika moved out. She was fun. She was hot. And she fixed my blender. That was not a metaphor. You know any fake divorce lawyers? I'm surprisingly depressed by this."
       Wilson is quiet for a moment and then tells House, "I have cancer."
       House doesn't believe him, in complete denial. "You were a little short with me the other day. You do need an excuse. Cancer may be overplaying it."
       "Stage 2 Thymona." Now House believes. Wilson goes on slowly with the facts. "I didn't want to tell you until I had it confirm. I got the tests back this morning. I have cancer, House."
