Disclaimer: This Hub was written as a challenge. My friend Georgie Lowery and I sent each other ten Hub titles, and we have to write one Hub for each. This Hub title is one of Georgie Lowerys.

I am a big House, M.D. fan. Although I admit, the last two seasons, I didn't watch as religiously as I did the previous six. I don't know why...there was just something about it I didn't like. It had nothing to do with Hugh Laurie. God, no. I love that man. I think he was perfect as Dr. Gregory House. His comedic timing was perfect. His seriousness was awesome. His American accent...well, I prefer his British one over that, but that's just me. He did do a good American accent. My husband and sister-in-law did not know he was British until I told them.

I've known about Hugh Laurie for years before House, M.D. came about. My mother has been a fan of his for years and years. His best friend, Stephen Fry, was one of his co-horts. They did Jeeves and Wooster together, as well as Fry & Laurie. Hugh also did the Blackadder series with Rowan Atkinson, of Mr. Bean fame. My mom accuses me of paying no attention to Hugh until House, M.D. came along. It's not totally true. I've always had my eye on him but House just made him pop to me.

Top Ten House Quotes

Here are my top ten Dr. House quotes!

  1. "Everybody lies."
  2. “Like I always say, there's no "I" in team. There's a "me" though, if you jumble it up.”
  3. “The drugs don't make me high, they make me neutral.”
  4. "Men are pigs. [They will] pretty much have sex with anyone, fat, skinny, married, single, complete strangers, relatives."
  5. "People like talking about people. Makes us feel superior. Makes us feel in control. And sometimes, for some people, knowing some things makes them care."
  6. "If you can fake sincerity, you can fake pretty much anything."
  7. " the philosopher Jagger once said, 'You can't always get what you want.'"
  8. "What usually happens when you poke something with a stick? It pokes back."
  9. “Perseverance does not equal worthiness. Next time you want to get my attention, wear something fun. Low-riding jeans are hot.” (This one made me giggle.)
  10. “[To Cameron at Christmas] Candy canes? Are you trying to mock me?”

My favorite House, M.D. clip EVER

The End

I will miss House, M.D. now that the series is over. I watched the finale and I liked it. It wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I cried at the end, then I squee'd, and then I cried some more because it was the end.

I will miss the weekly snark. The weekly drooling over Hugh Laurie and his sexiness. Thank you, Hugh, for eight wonderful seasons.

      I have the first two seasons on DVD (a wonderful, beautiful, gracious friend got me the first season) and if I ever get enough money, I will be buy the rest of the seasons. I love House's snark. He is kinda like me...but way cooler. Way, way cooler!

      House will be missed! Thanks for DVRs that can record tv shows. Hope when he comes back (just in case for whatever reasons), he will have more heart but still subtly funny :-)

      Haha thanks for the laugh. I stopped watching House some seasons ago (it just started to get silly, not so much Hugh Laurie, but the story lines) but these quotes remind me why I used to love the show! It wasn't until the fourth season that I even knew he was British!
