Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: Many of the cold opens in the series pull this in regards to whom House will treat. In one example, a kid looks like he's going to have an asthma attack while running up to a bike racing course. He gets an inhaler, but the racer he came to see ends up falling off his bike and passing out.

* GroinAttack: House pushed one recent widower a little too far.

* GroinAttack: House pushed one recent widower recently widowed person a little too far.



** More recently, someone vomiting up blood or blood spewing from some kind of orifice.

* YouNeverAsked: Almost always completely averted, since House and his team almost always ask the most relevant questions; often to the point of bullying the patient or breaking into their homes to get useful answers. If a patients doesn't provide the right answers, it's because he or she is either lying to hide a BigSecret, or has picked up the IdiotBall.
** Played straight in "Private Lives" [[spoiler:the patient, a recent vegetarian, is having all sorts of medical issues and is given many proclamations of death, yet when House finally asks her about the quality of her bowel movements, the answer is obvious (and easily remedied). However, that is one of the FIRST questions doctors will ask when getting a history.]]
*** The team always ''breaks'' into to the patient's home in order to "test for environmental causes;" if they simply ask for a key, House and the team condemns them as "cowards".
* YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: If a convincing diagnosis is made at all before the end, it's usually made around the halfway mark. Of course, it'll be the wrong one. Alternatively, it's the right diagnosis, but other things get in the way - for example a patient is correctly diagnosed as having Strongyloides, but his helper dog eats the pills the doctor in charge gives him. Result - one dead patient who didn't get his medication, one dead dog who did. or House suspects Erdheim Chester's in both an old woman and a young kid in "All In" within the first fifteen minutes, but the tests were screwed up because of the timing and they went through about fifteen other things.

** The end of Season 7 and the 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.]]

House is [[{{Jerkass}} abrasive socially, professionally, and personally]]; he usually refuses to take on a case unless something about it piques his interest and he's known to engage in bizarre (and not always legal) hobbies and pranks while working. [[BunnyEarsLawyer However, he is such a genius in diagnosing patients]] that the Dean of Medicine, Dr. Lisa Cuddy, [[TheLastDJ allows him to continue]]. His only friend is Dr. James Wilson, head of the Oncology department. Being a modern day {{homage}} to ''Franchise/SherlockHolmes'', House and Wilson correspond to Holmes and Watson, respectively.

Added DiffLines:

** Infamously, [[spoiler:Kutner's suicide.]] It gets about two episodes of drama before the cast collectively moves on, though [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that it was very much a last minute addition.
