House: You asked me, how I’d hurt my leg. I had a blood clot, and the muscle was dying, And they had all these doctors telling me I should amputate and I said no. And they did this very risky operation I almost died.
Hanna: But it saved your leg.
House: I wish I hadn’t. They cut out a chunk of muscle about the size of my fist and they left me with this mutilated, useless thing. And I’m in pain every day. And It changed me. It made me a harder person, a worse person. And now… now I’m alone. You don’t want to be like me. You got a husband who loves you, you got friends, you’ll gonna start a family. You have a life… and this is just a leg.
