“As a real person, he wouldn’t last a minute, would he? But drama is about imperfection. And we’ve moved away from the aspirational hero. We got tired of it, it was dull. If I was House’s friend, I would hate it. How he so resolutely refuses to be happy or take the kind-hearted road. But we don’t always like morally good people, do we?”

“The strange thing – and this is one of the advantages of being incredibly shallow and superficial – is that wherever I am, that’s sort of home.”

— Hugh Laurie

“Ideas are 10 a penny. It’s the execution that’s the hard thing to do. House is standing up against a tide of sentiment and emotionalism over reason that threatens to engulf this world. When you think about it, a rationalist, a man of science and reason, is in a pretty lonely position.”

— Hugh Laurie
