Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Though other characters occasionally insinuate that Dr. Chase is a bit dim, he actually comes up with more correct diagnoses than any other supporting character over the course of the series.
  • When ER doctors admit patients who have a known history of drug use or addiction, it is often notated in their patient charts using the acronym HOUSE for History of Use.
  • On [Inside the Actors Studio (1994)], Hugh Laurie admitted that when he first read the script for House (which did not have the title of "House M.D." at the time) he believed that the character of Wilson was the lead. He just couldn't believe that a man such as House could be the star of the show.
  • Dr. Gregory House was based on Sherlock Holmes... but Holmes, in turn, was based on a Doctor that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle knew while studying medicine, Dr. [?] Joseph Bell, whose specialty was diagnosis. The reference is pushed further when, In episode 11 of the fifth season, Wilson presents House with [?] Joseph Bell's Manual Of the Operations of Surgery as a Christmas gift. When House's staff begin to wonder why he would throw away the expensive gift, an amused Wilson begins making up a story about House having a closeted infatuation with a patient named Irene Adler whom he will always consider to be "the one who got away". Irene Adler is a prominent character in one Sherlock Holmes story who has been wrongly characterised as Sherlock Holmes' love interest in several adaptations. Here the one who got away is a parallel to the fact that she was the one woman who defeated Sherlock Holmes, making Sherlock Holmes respect her. But he was never in love with her. The false story of Wilson about Irene Adler pays tribute to both of these facts. Also for a long while House believes that his biological father is a friend of family named as Thomas Bell.
  • In the season 2 episode ["Clueless"], Wilson is scrolling through the TV shows House has recorded. One show listed is ["The OC"], which House had mentioned previously that he watches. Another show listed is [Blackadder], a British comedy starring Rowan Atkinson, which is one of Hugh Laurie's (House) most famous roles.
  • Dr. House is a polyglot. He knows English, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, French, Hindi (a little), and Mandarin.
