* TheKirk: How he diagnoses patients. His various team-members look at things from emotional angels fulfilling the roles of TheSpock and TheMcCoy, leaving House to decide on the best course of action on his own.

* SleepingWithTheBoss: He winds up having sex with Cuddy, the hospital administrator and his immediate supervisor, after she comes over to his house to help him kick his Vicodin addiction. [[spoiler:Except their encounter that night never actually happened—it was all a Vicodin-induced hallucination on House's part]].

* SerialSpouse: Wilson had been divorced twice at the start of the show. He went through his third divorce in season two. At one point his second wife says "He’s just so knight-in-shining armor, you know? Always there to support you, until he’s not, but by then you’re hooked." He stopped being there for her because he needed to be there for House. It's implied that this is due to his ChronicHeroSyndrome. He's supportive of his girlfriends and spouses until they don't need support anymore, then he loses interest. House never stops needing him.

'''Park:''' Yes, completely unacceptable. I wasn’t thinking. I guess, I mean, I guess technically I was thinking. I just, it happened so fast I didn’t… I… I…. it’s like… it’s like it wasn’t even me I would never do something like that, even though I did. I’m sorry, I’m not making any sense right now I um…. I don’t know I just, really love being a doctor so much and I barely even have a hundred dollars and… please don’t fire me!

Added DiffLines:

* ProfessorGuineaPig: He wouldn't be a mad scientist if he didn't experiment on himself from time-to-time.
** A college rival House held a grudge against attempted to create a drug that stops migraines. Just to prove him wrong (and also to screw him out of patenting it) House took the medication as well as drugs that would ''induce'' an extremely severe migraine headache. His rival's drug failed and he wound up in extreme pain for the rest of the day, but did wreck the guy's chance to get his drug bought. House eventually cured his migraine himself. With LSD.
** In one episode, the patient of that week was having a bad reaction, and the team was convinced that it was because of tainted blood from a recent transfusion. House said repeatedly that wasn't the case and eventually got so annoyed arguing the point that he had the team transfuse the blood into ''him'' (House being a universal recipient).
** One of the most serious cases was when House discovered a study being done on rats that would re-grow lost muscle which he began to steal samples of and test on himself. [[spoiler: All rats eventually developed fatal tumors in the muscle mass they were re-growing, meaning House had to cut his leg open and remove said tumors himself in his bathtub.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BerserkButton: House takes issue with [[DeathSeeker Death Seekers]] and patients who have no desire to live. This typically manifests as his doing everything to make the patient survive regardless of their wishes, as exemplified in the episode "DNR" when he ignores a patient's wishes to not be resuscitated. [[spoiler:He loses it in the penultimate episode of the series when Wilson stops taking chemo, nearly strangling a patient in order to prove a point that "It is our human responsibility to stay alive!"]]

Added DiffLines:

* TenMinuteRetirement: In season 4, Foreman quits from Princeton Plainsboro because he fears becoming like House. He eventually has little choice but to return to House's team because he ignored protocol at the hospital he started working at, got fired, and became virtually unhireable at any hospital except Princeton Plainsboro.


Added DiffLines:

* TenMinuteRetirement: A couple times. She first quits in Season 1 as a result of House's ongoing hostilities with Vogler, but returns early in Season 2. She quits House's team again at the end of Season 4, but continues to work at Princeton Plainsboro in the emergency room and eventually rejoins the diagnostics team. [[PutOnABus She quits for good]] in Season 6 after her marriage with Chase collapses following the Dibala case.

Added DiffLines:

* TheAllegedBoss: She's House's direct superior in the hospital's hierarchy and she tries to put a leash on him... Not that it helps.


Added DiffLines:

* OvershadowedByAwesome: It's one big part of her characterization: she's a brilliant doctor who's constantly living in House's shadow despite being his superior.


Added DiffLines:

* RetiredBadass: More or less; as an administrator of the hospital, she doesn't often get involved in individual cases. When she actually does get involved, we see why she's the best doctor in PPTH after House himself.

Added DiffLines:

* TenMinuteRetirement: A few times over the course of the series:
** In "The Softer Side", he quits when Cuddy tells him she won't let him use methadone while he worked at her hospital. He's ready to look into jobs at other hospitals before Cuddy relents and lets him take methadone under her supervision.
** When season 6 begins, after going through rehab for his vicodin addiction, he quits from Princeton Plainsboro out of worry that familiar surroundings would cause him to relapse. He returns when he finds that the puzzles from the cases he worked on were the only thing that helped to keep his leg pain at bay.

* [[SheCleansUpNicely He Cleans Up Nicely]]: In "The Softer Side", after [[TenMinuteRetirement quitting from Princeton Plainsboro]] over his use of methadone, he cleans himself up for job interviews at other hospitals. Wilson barely recognizes him in a clean suit and without his stubble.
