djdbd: it indicates freedom from disease. we're biologically programmed to...
s: the point is -- you rub people the wrong way. but house is okay with your lack of bedside manner. he's okay with your willingness to argue any point with anyone, even if they outrank you. he's okay with your peculiar fashion sense.
