* NothingIsTheSameAnymore: The NothingIsTheSameAnymore
** At the
end of Season 3, Foreman and Cameron quit, and House fires Chase. Season 4 begins with House assembling a new team of diagnosticians.
** At
the end of Season 4, House is involved in a bus crash along with Amber, who had married Wilson. Amber dies, and her death creates a schism in House and Wilson's relationship. House's own guilt over her death also pushes him to the brink of insanity.
** The
end of "Body Season 7 and Soul", the series finale.beginning of Season 8 represent major changes in the series: [[spoiler:Cuddy steps down as the dean of medicine and is succeeded by Foreman, who manages to get House out of prison on a strictly supervised probation. The rest of House's team splits up, leaving him with only a meek and mousy hand-me-down from neurology when he returns from prison (though most of his team later returns). Taub is now a single father of two daughters (one from his ex-wife and another from the woman he cheated on her with), and Thirteen was in prison after euthanizing her severely ill brother. In addition, Wilson has cancer and only six months to live.]]

* MoralMyopia: Happens from time to time, either when one of the characters sticks to their version of morality and ignores the wider consequences, or when the production staff thinks that a particular life-style choice or moral choice is right or wrong and will then tailor the character(s) and or storyline to justify their opinion, even if it's contrary to the nature of a character... or reality. YMMV, but one point where you could pick on this is the DeBalla case early in season 6, where, when the man specifically ''states'' that once he gets better he will go back to his country to commit genocide, House's team, particularly Cameron, suddenly get hung up on the immediate "sanctity of human life" and "duty of a doctor", ignoring the fact that if they let him go back to his country healthy they ''will'' be enabling genocide, whether they like it or not. Instead of discussing the morality - which they do excessively in every other case - they ignore the fact that they were murderers either way once he was on the table - if they cure him they kill thousands, if they kill him, they kill one person.

* OoCIsSeriousBusiness: In ''Euphoria'', House began to suspect something was wrong with Foreman when he laughed at him shooting a corpse. Foreman is as close to [[TheStoic a stoic]] as there is on this show. When he later laughed at a case of irony ''as the patient was dying'', that confirmed something was wrong.

* StrictlyFormula: The medical aspects are generally background noise for whatever drama is going on in House's life. In "Words And Deeds" (S03E11), they discovered the patient had fallen in love with his brother's fiance; being in her presence was literally killing him. [[spoiler:So the team wiped his memory of her. And basically every bit of personal information in his life. Turns out he had a bug which was causing false memories of the fiance; ''she wasn't even his brother's fiance''. After TheReveal, the episode finished out with the plot about House's life, with no mention of the ''massive'' lawsuit that would be realistically be bearing down on the hospital.]]

** Initially averted with House's game console choices; he starts off using a GameBoyAdvance SP, then for the rest of Season 1 alternates between a NintendoDS and a PlayStationPortable. Starting in Season 2 however he only ever plays with the PSP, and is also seen using a PSP Go in latter seasons, and finally a PlayStationVita near the very end of the show.

Added DiffLines:

* SpoilerCover: In the 4th season the big question is "Who will be in House's new team?", with three new doctors chosen halfway through the season. The British DVD release shows the three doctors who make the cut on the back cover. The Polish DVD release features them on the ''front'' cover.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In the end, House's patients' lives are his top priority, despite his very rough personality. He also clearly places great value in his friendship with Wilson.


Added DiffLines:

** In the S4 finale House [[spoiler:risks his life by undergoing deep-brain stimulation at Wilson't request. ("You want me to risk my life in order to save Amber's?") This is on the off chance that he can remember anything from the night of the bus accident that might help them diagnose her. He remembers, but the diagnosis is fatal. On the other hand it *does* send him into a violent seizure while still undergoing brain surgery. All this from a man who claims that he doesn't care about anyone.]]
