actually, there was that one time where the patient did have lupus.

As Peppy pointed out, yes, Lupus actually was the diagnosis once. Season 4, episode #8, “You Don’t Want to Know.” And while, yes, I *am* a huge dork, no, I didn’t just happen to know that– I just happened to watch that episode last night because I got season 4 for Christmas. 😀 House even says something to the effect that it was finally Lupus.

LOL, “stat”.

“It’s NEVER lupus… except that one time” has become something of a catch phrase in my circle of friends. It’s inevitably followed by a discussion of why it’s called ‘lupus’, but we refuse to look it up, because that would ruin the fun.

The phrase “we ruled out auto-immune diseases” is THE most overused line in House! Good call!

Hey, did y’all know that there is a drinking game that involves taking a shot every time they either mention auto-immune as a diagnosis or two shots when they say “it could be lupus” or “I still think it’s lupus” (which they do all the time!)? Let me just say that it is possible to get quite trashed for EVERY episode!

Not sure if I can post the image directly in the comments box but I thought this was relevant to the conversation.

They acknowledged the running lupus joke once, when House hid something (Vicodin stash?) inside cut-out pages of a lupus textbook, and explained that “it’s never lupus”.
Just thought I’d throw in my 2 cents of House trivia.
@flynnoconnor: I was curious, so I clicked through- those screencaps are hilariously perfect (“You are a black man.” “This vexes me.” Heeeeeee)

I discussion of House on the internets without a link to Polite Dissent? That can’t be allowed…

Though a spoof of House with a homeopathic doctor would be funny. At the very least it would be better than the homeopathic doctor stuff on Private Practice. Of course everything is better than that show…

House as a homeopathic “doctor” would be a lot like watching a show based on 4chan.
