Hugh Laurie is one of the biggest English celebrities, there are no two ways about it. While he mainly focuses on acting, but his talents are not limited to just that. Hugh is also a terrific director, singer, musician, comedian and author. He first gained recognition for his work as one half of the comedy double act Fry and Laurie with his friend and comedy partner Stephen Fry. However, the character of Dr. Gregory House from the hit TV show, House will remain a strong highlight in his career so far.

While House was mainly an intense drama about damaged doctors and the patients they treat, there was also a good mix of humour in there. Even though the show aired its last season in 2012, its legacy lives on as a huge set of people still binge-watch it every now and then. On Hugh's birthday today, we compile some of the sassy lines that he said on House.

"I'm sorry. I'm about to lose you because I'm about to drive into a tunnel in a canyon on an airplane while hanging up the phone."

"There's no 'I' in team. There's a 'Me' though, if you jumble it up."

"There is not a thin line between love and hate. There is in fact a Great Wall Of China with armed sentries posted every 20 feet between love and hate." 

"What's the opposite of 'Thank You'? I'm pretty sure it ends in 'You.'"

“You think your dad wants to kill you because you’re so ugly? Be grateful, anywhere else in the animal kingdom, your parents would’ve eaten you at birth.”

“Are you comparing me to God? I mean, it’s great, but so you know, I’ve never made a tree.”

“Pretty much all the drugs I prescribe are addictive and dangerous.”
