Nothing which hasn't been said before, but *love*
"Death! You really want to risk it? You’re a doctor; surprised you didn’t think of that!"
Just wonderful. You managed to catch House's voice, from his mercurial moods to theatricality perfectly.

*sigh of happiness* LOVE the fact that FINALLY Wilson a) doesn't back down, but also b) doesn't stand his ground stupidly and blindly, like in S3. Here again, we see they've both grown up a little.

"“Okay, fine! You wanna talk? Let’s talk. I blew it! I blew it with Tritter. I blew it with Cuddy. I blew it with rehab. Okay? And I blew it with you. Then—just in case you missed it the first time—you went to prison, and I messed up again. I’m a screw-up, okay? Happy now?”

House is breathing rapidly. He has the steering wheel in a death grip; his knuckles are white. Wilson waits a minute, and when he speaks, he keeps his voice deliberately low and calm; his tone is gentle.

“I blew it too, House. Long before Tritter was even in the picture. My best friend came to me for help. He was honest with me, and he was scared. And I laughed at him. Someday, I might be able to forgive myself for that. But I’ll never forgive myself for allowing things to get so out of hand for him that he was willing to risk everything.”

House shoots Wilson a quick glance, and sees the sincerity on his face, the regret in his eyes. House takes a deep breath, and allows himself to relax, just a little."

The deft touch w/this is just beyond words!!! You perfectly capture House's skittishness, and I love that Wilson is finally remembering to channel his compassionate self, and doesn't let House keep the self-loathing.

"“Yeah, because that’s the way south is,” House says. He looks pleased with himself." (Why am I getting a mental-piccie of my cat just polishing off a plate of tuna? :lol)

"“And… you’re going south, because?”

“Because I’m pretty sure that’s where my apartment is. Could be wrong, though. Only lived there fifteen years, after all.”" Love the sarkiness to disguise the caring - so very IC!!!

And the whole true-but-at-the-same-time-a-cover thing of WHY House is taking him home... just gotta love it. It makes me smile.
