Closet Cases: House/Wilson
1) Stephen Lynch -- Gay
It's not that I don't care--I do
I just don't see myself in you
Another time, another scene
I'd be right behind you--if you know what I mean
House: Dr. Wilson, I want you to meet my stalker.
Kalvin: Your waiting room sucks.
House: I am not treating you.
Kalvin: What, because you're a closet-case?
Wilson: Er... we're not... er... together.
House: He is so self-loathing.
2) Cake -- Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps
You won't admit you love me
How am I ever
You only tell me
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps
Stacy: What are you hiding?
House: I'm gay. ...Oh, you didn't mean that. It would explain a lot, though. No girlfriend, always hanging out with Wilson, obsession with sneakers...
3) Grateful Dead -- Friend of the Devil
Set out running but I take my time
A friend of the devil is a friend of mine
If I get home before daylight I just might get some sleep
House: We are condemned to useless labor.
Wilson: Fourth circle of Hell. Charting goes a lot faster when you eliminate the whole of classic poetry.
House: Writing down what we already know to be read by nobody. Pretty sure Dante would agree that qualifies as useless.
4) Three Doors Down -- Let Me Go
One more kiss could be the best thing
But one more lie could be the worst
And all these thoughts are never resting
And you're not something I deserve
House: You lied to a friend to save a stranger; you don't think that's screwed up?
Wilson: You've never lied to me?
House: I never lie.
Wilson: Oh, really?
5) Chopin -- Op. 72, No. 1 in E minor
6) Matchbox 20 -- Long Day
I'm sorry 'bout the attitude
I need to give when I'm with you
But no one else would take this shit from me
Wilson: If you have the money then why did you need the loan?
House: I didn't. Just wanted to see if you could give it to me. I've been borrowing increasing amounts ever since you lent me forty dollars a year ago. A little experiment to see where you draw the line.
Wilson: You're--you're trying to... objectively measure how much I value our friendship?!
House: Hey, it's five grand. You've got nothing to be ashamed of. So what do you say? One little phone call and one big check?
Wilson: Fine. Thanks. Now, be a grown-up and either tell mommy and daddy you don't want to see them, or I'm picking you up at seven for dinner.
House: What do you mean? You just said that--
Wilson: I lied. I've been lying to you in increasing amounts ever since I told you you looked good unshaved a year ago. It's a little experiment, you know, see where you draw the line.
7) Johnny Cash -- Hurt
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
House: Can I come with?
Wilson: To tell Andie she's going to die? That's very un-you.
House: Well, she's such a brave girl. I want to see how brave she is when you tell her she's going to die.
Wilson: Go to hell.
8) Fastball -- Out Of My Head
Don't matter what I say, only what I do
I never mean to do bad things to you
So quiet but I finally woke up
If you're sad then it's time you spoke up too
Rebecca: He's your friend, huh?
Rebecca: Does he care about you?
Wilson: I think so.
Rebecca: You don't know?
Wilson: As Dr. House likes to say, "Everybody lies."
Rebecca: It's not what people say, it's what they do.
Wilson: ...Yes, he cares about me.
