* 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.

** It's explicitly [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in the Vogler arc that most individual doctors in other departments have a ''far'' heavier caseload than the entire Diagnostic Medicine department, so part of House's reasoning is that given that his team has so much "free time" they might as well do everything for a particular patient up to and including changing bedpans on the off chance that in the process they will notice some obscure detail that will give him an insight into a particularly puzzling case.

* DecadeThemedParty: In "Known Unknowns", there's an "80's Party". Dr. House comes dressed in 19th century garb because the invitation just said 80's, and didn't specify a century. Doubles as an ActorAllusion due to his role as [[Series/{{Blackadder}} the Prince Regent]].

** 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.

* WrongInsultOffence: One of Wilson's ex-wives tells House that she named their yappy unpleasant dog Hector because the dog reminded her of House, and "Doctor Greg House" is an anagram of "Hector does go rug."
-->'''House:''' First, "Hector does go rug" is a lame anagram. You want a better one for "Gregory House"? "Huge ego. Sorry."

* LikeParentLikeSpouse: Pointed out by House as the reason why Chase is attracted to a doctor he was responsible for hiring as part of House's diagnostics team, demonstrating this with a side-by-side comparison with a photo projection which shows an uncanny physical resemblance between the two women.
