HOUSE: May is when things start to get hot.
CUDDY: [laughs] If that guy wasn’t trying so hard to keep up with a women half his age he wouldn’t have almost killed both his kids.
HOUSE: Guy gets a little something-something [Cuddy laughs again], couple of kids have to die, circle of life.

CUDDY: You are going back to the clinic. Or jail.
HOUSE: [amused] You perjured yourself to keep me out of jail. How’re you -?
CUDDY: I only did that because I thought you were getting clean.
HOUSE: So it’s do clinic duty or go to jail.
HOUSE: Then it’ll be finish your paperwork or go to jail. Help with fundraising or go to jail. Do your job or go to jail. I think I’d rather go to jail.

HOUSE: Oh, stop it! Suddenly, I don’t feel I can trust Michael Moore movies. [he begins to leave Cuddy’s office]
