Storyboard Text

  • What is an Antihero?
  • Why House is considered an Antihero
  • Example 1
  • ◦"It's a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies. The only variable is about what." [#121]
  • An antihero is a character that usually does good, but is morally bent. Their values, physical condition, or both are blemished, effectively making them more relatable.
  • Example 2
  • Though he saves lives for a living, House is physically imperfect with a crippled leg and a Vicodin addiction. More importantly, he is morally askew. He swears by the code that everyone lies and he often diagnoses patients with risky ideas that could kill them.
  • Example 3
  • Bleehhhhh I am sicckkk
  • "I take risks, sometimes patients die. But not taking risks causes more patients to die, so I guess my biggest problem is I've been cursed with the ability to do the math."
  • House's insistence on the untruthfullness of others shows that he is disallusioned with society.
  • Here, the viewer observes House, a doctor, declaring an honest dislike for patients. This display is completely off base for what would be expected of a doctor.
  • "...treating illnesses is why we became doctors, treating patients is what makes most doctors miserable."
  • When he said this, House showed that he believes the ends justifies the means. In a callousness that only House can possess, he explains that his risky mode of operating is justified because more people are saved from it than are killed.
