“It’s a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies. The only variable is about what.” – Dr. Gregory House

House is conducting a class on diagnostics. And he is diagnosing three different patients all with the same primary symptom – leg pain. During one of the diagnoses, a student questions him as to why a dying man would be more concerned about his dog than the fact that he is dying. And House provides an explanation – humans will lie. They always lie. The reasons may change, but the fact does not.

Houseism from the episode – Three Stories (Season 1, Episode 21). This is one of the best episodes of the season.
