* CompetitionFreak: Literally couldn't understand how the patient in "Games" could be okay with his own mediocrity. [[spoiler: This is ultimately why House eliminated her from being on the team, she needed to learn how to deal with losing.]]

* FamedInStory: Despite being more-or-less blacklisted in the medical community, he's still a world famous doctor, and he's constantly getting resumes from doctors hoping to be one of his fellows; he had a ''hundred'' applicants in Season 4 -- that's how renowned he is. In fact ''other'' doctors send their patients to him when they get stumped.

In fact ''other'' doctors send their patients to him when they get stumped. Unfortunately his behavior and ego are ''equally'' famous in the medical community (if not moreso), to the point that working for him is a double-edged sword. If your resume shows you worked with House in the past, that's good; you probably learned a lot about diagnosis. If you worked with House ''too much'', that's bad; it's too likely his behavior's rubbed off on you.



* BetterTheDevilYouKnow: Apparently subscribes to this, which is why whenever House is untrusting of an outside influence (Volger or Tritter) he knows he can count on Foreman to not betray him. No matter how badly House treats him, Foreman's got no guarantee strangers will be any more trustworthy.
-->'''House:''' You wouldn't jump ship unless you knew what was in the water.



* ArcVillain: For the second half of Season 1. Once the season's over he's never seen or mentioned again.



ArcVillain: His storyline is the focus of much of Season 3, but has no consequences or ramifications beyond that.



%%* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther

to:

%%* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: House at first just seems to like Dominika for the sex, the cooking, and her skills as a message therapist (messages help his leg). The fact that she's a willing sidekick to his escapades doesn't exactly hurt. Over time he actually ''does'' get attached on an emotional level, comforting her when she suffers a death in the family and trying to spend more time with her in general. He still manipulates her, but he does that with everyone.



%%* ForeignFanservice

to:

%%* ForeignFanservice* ForeignFanservice: A large part of what attracted House to marry her.



%%* MsFanservice

to:

%%* MsFanservice* MsFanservice: Even in a world where everyone looks like an underwear model, she still manages to pull off this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* SupremeChef: After she settles into the United States life she sets up a food business successful enough to easily bribe House into keeping up the illusion of their CitizenshipMarriage.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Okay, Tritter has reason to be pissed [[spoiler:House left him in a clinic room with a rectal thermometer up his ass for two hours straight]], but does that really justify trying to imprison House, get him declared a drug pusher/addict, and get him disbarred from medicine forever? And then there's his nonchalant destruction of Wilson's practice as part of his investigation.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroAntagonist: House did commit several felonies during the arc Tritter was in, so it's not like his actions are completely unfounded.

* LifeorLimbDecision: His own leg regarding the infarction that caused his current condition. While he resented Stacy at first for making the middle-ground decision that left him with his leg and constant pain, he often admits in his darker moments that he'd be much better off if he wasn't so stubborn and just had them cut the leg off.

* CustomUniform: He very rarely wears the white lab coat that all the other doctors are required to wear. In fact, if you ''do'' see House in a lab coat, he's probably up to something.

* CustomUniform: He very rarely wears the white lab coat that all the other doctors are required to wear.wear -- he usually wears a blazer over some sort of t-shirt or professional-causal shirt like a blue-button up. In fact, if you ''do'' see House in a lab coat, he's probably up to something.



* LoveMakesYouStupid: Despite her claims to the contrary, it's pretty much implied her feelings for House is why she hired him, when no other doctor would, and why she puts up with her antics.



* CustomUniform: Starting in Season 4, like House he stops wearing a lab coat. {{Lampshaded}} by Chase in the episode "Games".

* CustomUniform: Starting in Season 4, like House he stops wearing a lab coat. {{Lampshaded}} by Chase in the episode "Games". However unlike House, he dresses professionally wearing a dress shirt and vest, so it's less noticeable.

* NeverLiveItDown: InUniverse, after he ran his car through Cuddy's house. After spending time in prison, Foreman essentially shanghai him back to work, on a ''very'' tight leash -- he's on the strictest probation and he walks a very fine line on being sent back to jail, and the rest of the staff hold him in open contempt, knowing Foreman isn't the pushover Cuddy was. [[spoiler: When House inevitably does something stupid, Foreman refuses to cover for him, which is why he fakes his death -- to spend time with Wilson.]]
