“Truth begins in lies. Think about it.” – Dr. Gregory House

House cannot figure out what is wrong with Adler. He has not yet talked to the patient. After all, everybody lies. But now, he wants Foreman to go and get her history. Foreman throws House’s assumption back at him – why talk to Adler if she is going to lie anyway? House can’t answer this, can he now? So, truth begins in lies, he says. Bring me the sack of lies and I will figure out the truth. But he knows he is contradicting himself. And so does Foreman.

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

      Nov ’07. I got political from December, and vitriolic beginning March. An interesting position to hold though. House, I mean.
