“Everybody lies.” – Dr. Gregory House

Everybody lies is House’s credo. House, the maverick genius, has seen over the years that people cannot be trusted. That is what makes him a cynic, and a very interesting character.

This episode, Rebecca Adler is his patient and he is diagnosing her case with doctors Foreman and Cameron. And Foreman asks House why is it that they are not talking to the patient before diagnosing her. Is she a doctor? – House asks. No. Everybody lies. She will too. So there is no point talking to her.

Houseism from the show pilot (Season 1, Episode 1).
