20 of the Best Quotes from Dr. House

house 4

For years, Dr. House imparted wisdom not only to those in his office, but also to us, the audience, watching him be a snarky, grumpy old man.

He’s a smart guy, so there’s no reason to doubt that some profound stuff came out of his mouth every so often. Though the intelligence is usually mixed with biting sarcasm and disdain.

I’ve tried to assemble what I think are twenty of his best quotes from the show over the years. This list could have been a hundred instead, but we’ll just start with these first:

1. “You want to know how two chemicals interact, do you ask them? No, they’re going to lie through their lying little chemical teeth. Throw them in a beaker and apply heat.”

2. “Everybody does stupid things, it shouldn’t cost them everything they want in life.”

3. “I choose to believe that the white light people sometimes see… they’re all just chemical reactions that take place when the brain shuts down…. There’s no conclusive science. My choice has no practical relevance to my life, I choose the outcome I find more comforting…. I find it more comforting to believe that this isn’t simply a test.”

4. “Our bodies break down, sometimes when we’re 90, sometimes before we’re even born, but it always happens and there’s never any dignity in it. I don’t care if you can walk, see, wipe your own ass. It’s always ugly. Always. You can live with dignity, we can’t die with it.”
