Dr. Nolan: Why do you value your failures more than your successes?
House: My mother caught me masturbating... to pictures of her mother.
Dr. Nolan: Can we get past these cute deflections?
House: Successes only last until someone screws them up. Failures are forever.
Dr. Nolan: So you accept that fact.You accept that there is nothing you can do.
House: Ok,i accept that there is nothing i can do.Now,what can i do?
Dr. Nolan: You acknowledge failure and you move past it.You apologize.
House: Wow. Powerful things these apologies. Get someone to jump off a building and
you say two words and you move on with your life. Hardly seems fair.
Dr. Nolan: Is that the issue?You caused him pain. If the world is just, you have to suffer equally?You're not God, House. You're just another screwed-up human being who needs to move on. Apologize to him. Let yourself feel better. Then you can learn to let yourself keep feeling better.
