“Is a lie a lie if everybody knows it’s a lie?” – Dr. Gregory House

House has a patient in a clinic. But he is more interested in her bosom than her problem. He knows they have been artificially enhanced and complements her on the same. And she says they were a present for her husband’s 40th birthday. House can’t let such an opportunity go, can he? So he calls in Wilson for a ‘consult’. After they are done, he asks Wilson – is a lie a lie if everybody knows it’s a lie, meaning, who would believe her statement that they were a ‘present for him’ rather than for herself.

Houseism from the episode – Fidelity (Season 1, Episode 7).
