House M.D. Episode 8.10 Runaways
Taub: “Your patients love you, because you’re empathetic.” When Wilson gets to his office, he’s surprised to find Taub in there. “But you don’t love all your patients?”
Wilson: “Of course not,”
Taub: “I’ll bet some of them bore you. But you fake an interest in them because you need to, right? And if you do it long enough, it becomes real?”
Wilson: The interest is real.
Taub: “Really? Because you realize they’re not dull, it was just your misinterpretation of them?”
Wilson: It’s all about common ground. You find one thing you both like or hate. John Woo movies, romance novels, kale. Sometimes the best way to connect with someone is stop thinking about them, and focus on yourself.
