** 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 UsefulNotes/NintendoDS and a UsefulNotes/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 UsefulNotes/PlayStationVita near the very end of the show.

Added DiffLines:

** In Season 6, the patient is a drug dealer for the mob, but claims to work in "textiles." House needs to find out what drugs he was exposed to, but since the patient obviously can't admit to anything, they have to refer to his product as "hosiery" and "culottes."

*** "Broken". The Season 6 two-part opener was House kicking his Vicodin habit, courtesy of a mental hospital. It lampshades AND subverts the mental hospital tropes that have been set by ''OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'' decades ago. House spends the episode disrupting the ward's system, but realises by the end that he needs their help (opposite to Cuckoo's Nest, where the hospital staff are genuinely sadistic). Even better, the one-shot characters never grated and had viewers longing for their presence afterward. The episode was so wonderfully produced and written, casual viewers could have easily mistook it for an HBO series.

** Literally, with Steve [=McQueen=]. WordOfGod states that he passed away at some unspecified point, which isn't really surprising since the average lifespan for a rat is only about two or three years.

Added DiffLines:

*** "Two Stories", an intentional CallBack to "Three Stories" in the name, in Season 7. House goes to a career day at a school as a favor to Cuddy, who's trying to get Rachel into that school, and ends up getting himself sent to the principal's office, where he chats with a [[ToyShip young couple]].

** A lot of "Bombshells" including a [[MushroomSamba trippy]] musical number, a ''Film/ButchCassidyAndTheSundanceKid'' homage, a take-off of ''TwoAndAHalfMen'', and a [[TheFifties '50s]] family comedy.

** There was also the time when they memorably demonstrated the ample trunk space of the VW Golf by stashing the Oerlikon 22 mm autocannon from ''Thunderbolt and Lightfoot'' (don't ask) within.

* SpySpeak: Parodied in the episode "All In" when House calls Wilson during a poker game.

to:

* SpySpeak: Parodied Both parodied and played straight in the episode "All In" when House calls Wilson during a poker game.game. Wilson's first response has him going overboard just to screw with House, but he does actually attempt to pass coded information later ("cardiac" to refer to the hearts in his hand).

* OldShame: In-universe. Wilson acted in his roommate's college film, which turned out to be a porno (not the actual sex scenes though). House finds out and has GIANT POSTERS hung up in the hospital lobby, and soon everyone is quoting the film's horrible, horrible lines ad nauseam.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: House and his underlings are pretty much Omnidisciplinary Doctors. Officially, House - nephrology/infectious disease, Cuddy - endocrinology, Wilson - oncology, Cameron - immunology, Chase - surgery, Foreman - neurology, Kutner - sports medicine, Taub - plastic surgery, Thirteen - internal medicine. But they regularly carry out their own blood tests, MRI scans and even surgery, jobs that are usually reserved (sometimes by law) for specialists. Oh and the [[ChildProdigy 25-year old]] omnidoctorate Martha M. Masters (no not {{Eminem}}), whose combined doctorates of erm [[MixAndMatch applied mathematics and art history]], (yet not [[NotThatKindOfDoctor medicine funnily enough]]) ... don't expect any advanced deconstruction of 15th century Impressionism or constrained numerical optimisation anytime soon.
