* BrilliantButLazy: House. It's a given that he will become involved eventually, but the other characters often have to talk him into it while he's busy playing video games (MetroidZeroMission in an early season -- good taste, that man!) or watching his soap operas (or downloading internet porn). Especially applies to his clinic duty, since that doesn't usually have the promise of intellectual stimulation. Since he is a Sherlock Holmes {{Expy}}, this isn't entirely surprising.

* OrphanedPunchline: In "Love Hurts" we start a scene to hear Chase telling Foreman, "...So the bear wipes himself on the rabbit."[[note]]For the curious, the joke is that the bear and the rabbit were both defecating in the woods. The bear asked the rabbit if he had a problem with crap sticking to his fur. The rabbit replied that he didn't and that's where the punchline came in.[[/note]]

* BrainsAndBondage: Dr. Chase. He is a young doctor on House's diagnostic dream team and a brilliant surgeon who turns out to know the dominatrix whom one patient has been seeingc -- they used to hang out at the same BDSM club. None of the other doctors shame him for it, they are only mildly interested.

** 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 (and a case of RealLifeWritesThePlot, as the actor portraying Kuttner had asked to leave the show in order to get involved in politics).

** In "Role Model", House thinks that a black senator lies about being straight. "Some day there will be a black president. Some day there will be a gay president. Maybe there will even be a gay, black president. But one combination I do not see happening is gay, black, and dead."
** Episode "Deception": Dr. House to a hot female patient: "Yeah? What else turns you on? Drugs? Casual sex? Rough sex? Casual rough sex? Iím a doctor, I need to know."
** Season 6, episode 19: House comments on a married couple who boasted thay have an open marriage, but House correctly assumes the husband is hiding something and that they have other marital problems.
--->'''House:''' Of course the husband's secret was money. If it's not sex, it's always money. Unless it's sex for money. How did he lose it anyway?
** Season 7 episode 8: "You don't want to propose at a wedding; emotions running high, people on edge. You want to try somewhere like a Buddhist temple. Or an aquarium. Or a Buddhist aquarium."

** 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.
