House MD Tribute - People Don't Change

Uploaded by edmondlamfilms on 13.07.2011

Because of the extent of muscle removed,
the utility of the patient's leg was severely compromised.
Because of the time delay in making the diagnosis,
the patient continues to experience chronic pain.
My God, you are right, it's House.
You think that the only truth that matters is the truth that can be measured.
Good intentions don't count, what's in your heart doesn't count.
Caring doesn't count.
This does not make sense.
Do you really think your life's purpose was to sacrifice yourself and get nothing in return?
You believe there is no purpose to anything,
even the lives you save, you dismiss.
You turn the one decent thing in your life and you taint it,
strip it of all meaning.
You are miserable for nothing.
I don't know why you want to live.
And maybe if I'm wrong,
you are still miserable.
What do you want?
I want to get better.
Whatever the hell that means.
I just need to know if you and I can work.
This patient is the highest priority.
People don't change.
Because if you die, I'm alone.
Oh, my God!
I need help.
Help Me!
We are talking ethical and legal violations on the scale that will make even you puke.
She's dying!
That doesn't mean we should all go to jail to save her.
I changed my mind.
Because there are more important things than…
Than what? Than your brain? Your abilities?
It's where everything comes from! Any meaning in your life, any happiness.
Not all happiness.
He's already left once. He's gonna leave you again.
You don't need to depend on people who are gonna let you down.
I followed your advice.
>> WILSON: You're wrong. >> HOUSE: But instead I'm just being miserable.
>> HOUSE: So how is this working for me? >> WILSON: Clean up your stuff and get out.
It takes time.
For a year, I've done everything you've asked. And everybody else is happy.
I run my treadmill. You just sit there and watch.
Goodbye, House.
You're a faith healer. You take advantage of people who want to believe.
Love and happiness….
are nothing but distractions.
Whatever the answer is, you don't have it.
You have no relationships.
I don't want any relationships.
You alienate people.
I've been alienating people since I was three.
Oh come on! Drop it.
You don't think you've changed in the last few years?
Of course I have.
I have gotten older, my hair's gotten thinner.
Sometimes I'm bored, sometimes I'm lonely, sometimes I wonder what it all means.
No. I was there.
You're not just a regular guy who is getting older.
You've changed. You're miserable!
And you are afraid to face yourself.
Of course I've changed!
And everything's the leg? Nothing's the pills? They haven't done a thing to you.
They let me do my job.
And they take away my pain.
You spend your whole life looking for answers.
Because you think the next answer will change something,
maybe make you a little less miserable.
And you know when you run out of questions,
you don't just run out of answers,
you run out of hope.
I need my answer.
Your obsession is gonna kill her!
Your obsession gave me back the gun. >> THIRTEEN: You glad you know that?
You think fixing your leg will fix your life.
Because I swear I remember a thigh muscle being here.
You think all your problems are your leg.
I'm in pain, everyday.
It changed me.
Made me a harder person.
A worse person.
This is beyond asshood!
Now I'm alone.
Dying is easy. Living is hard.
You don't want to be like me.
The pills distort reality.
He's an addict.
You gonna risk her life just to save her leg?
We can't cure him so we are gonna torture him?
Torture is the cure.
You got nothing, House.
You want unhappiness to have a cure.
You decide to reenforce a sick man's delusions.
This wasn't your fault.
I did everything right. She died anyway.
Why the hell do you think that will make me feel any better?
>> WILSON: Life just happens. And that scares the hell out of you.
You think you can cure pain.
You think you can avoid pain!
You think you're responsible for every failure, every patient's boring life, every friend's screw-up,...
You don't want to face it anymore than my patient does!
I lied.
I don't want to be in pain,
I don't want to be miserable,
and I don't want him to hate me.
Well, you can't always get what you want.
Missed a call from House last night.
He in?
>> WILSON: You're lucky.
What are you doing here?
You hoping for someone else?
Hot nurse,
candy striper,
someone who doesn't speak English,
someone who doesn't speak judgmental.
You've got mail.
I hope your leg feels better,
and I hope we can be friends again soon.
You bloody scallywag.
I have to pee.
It's a good sign.
I am a big boy.
Of course you are.
You're an ass.
What, for trying to walk on a freshly-mangled leg,
performing surgery on myself,
thinking I can solve my emotional problems with rat medicine?
If you're gonna nag, at least have the decency to be specific.
Come on.
Listen to me.
You can't keep going like this.
Something has to change.
Can I pee first?
I know.
