How did you get over him?

If we're talking about who I think we're talking about - and I hope we're not - you never really get over him. Part of you always wants to be around him.

He's the sun. Only there's no ozone layer, no sunscreen. Just content warmth for a minute, then melanoma.

... it doesn't hurt that I had to quit my job once because of his blatant disregard for our friendship. Make no mistake - he cares about House, and House alone. Not out of cruelty. I think it's a defense mechanism. But it's a 40 years old one. You can't fix that.

Wilson:
Who else?

Oh good, and here I thought I was going to be miserable for the next year or two. Forever is much more comforting.

I didn't try. He was always the one trying to fix me. Guess that didn't work, either.

Take care of him, okay? I know you have a life outside of him now-- Chris is your first responsibility. But when Cuddy's gone, you're still going to be all he has.

He cares about you. Don't let him convince you any other way, because it's a lie. He'll always care about you. Making you think he doesn't is his defense mechanism.

I care about you too. Don't forget, okay? I'm going to miss you.

Karen:
I try to be honest. House is right - everybody lies - but not everybody does it to be an asshole.

And he wanted to fix you because if he fixed you, he solved you. I can't think he cares out of altruism. I think he cares for me like a master cares for its dog. Maybe I'm wrong. I hope I'm wrong. But honestly? I'm glad I've got Chris.

I'll miss you too. I don't agree with what you're doing, but if you have to, you have to.

I'm glad you have Chris, too.

You are wrong. Believing someone is incapable of love is just as ridiculous as trying to force someone to love you. It scares him that he's not your first priority anymore. He wants to push you away before he loses you. Don't let him.

I can't stay anymore. Even if I wanted to, I've screwed everything up. I'm sorry. Time to move on to the next place where I can screw everything up start over.

Karen:
I don't think he's incapable. I think he wants to think he's incapable, because he doesn't need human contact. The end result is the same. The people who love him get shoved away and dicked over and tromped on. But don't worry. We've been friends for longer than my first three marriages combined. I won't lose him. He won't lose me.

You know what I think of that. But yes.

Wilson:
He wants to think he doesn't need human contact. And then he asks you to buy him lunch. Not because he couldn't pay for it, but because he needs to make it look like he only wants to spend time with you, because he wants something from you. Maybe he convinces himself of it, too. Doesn't make him any less wrong.

I know. I was supposed to leave tonight, but he stole my key. He probably has some grand lecture to give me before I leave, that he got pissy because I wouldn't listen to tonight.

I know. He's just a really tall ten year old.

He'll miss you.

Wilson:
Basically. Except ten year olds are more easily swayed by cookies.

Please don't say that.

And are far easier to put to bed.

You know it's true, even if I don't say it.

Wilson:
Aw, just slip him a sedative in his scotch, and he's out like a light-- that is, until you try to tattoo him. Then he wakes up.

You said it yourself. I'm just a puzzle. All he'll miss is not being able to solve me.
thestraightman on December 26th, 2006 09:22 pm (UTC)
Karen:
I doubt very much he'd like anything I want to tattoo on him. "I Love Mom" isn't a Houseian saying.

And if you were just a puzzle, he would've not talked to you at all.

I thought "Princess" fit him rather nicely.

I guess.

Karen:
Oh, I agree. He's like an evil princess, and we're all subject to the whims of his hormones.

I know.
