* BloodyHorror: ''Series/{{House}}'', being a MedicalDrama, often has bleeding as a symptom both to gross out viewers, and to fear for the patient's life, whether it be from the [[BloodFromTheMouth mouth]], [[TearsOfBlood the eyes]], [[BloodFromEveryOrifice the nose, ears]], and in one episode a man's penis basically explodes and bleeds all over the toilet.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In the episode "Whac-a-Mole", House tells the patient he's going to give a cocktail of four different infections to test for a genetic disorder susceptible to each of them. How will they know which one it is?
-->'''House:''' Well, that's the fun part. See, if the meningococcus is king of the hill, you get to have another seizure. Serratia will shut down your lungs. If it's cepacia, you'll have a heart attack. And if it's the rhinovirus...you'll sneeze.

** In fact, an episode in the first season presents a ''double'' bait-and-switch. A young diver jumps in the pool in a tournament and it is suggested she passed out in the water, only for herself to to start moving and get to the surface to see a guy having a stroke. Turns out, the guy was quickly lampshaded away and she was, indeed, the patient of the week, only her symptoms appeared later in the episode.
