House, also referred to as "playing house" or "play grown up", is a traditional game, a form of make believe where children or adults take on the roles of a nuclear family, which typically consists of a father, mother, a child/children, a baby, and a cat/dog.

Iranian "Mamy" game with a little girl playing the mother and a little doll in the role of her daughter
This game is most commonly played with children ages 3–5, and often with props (most schools have a "kitchen area" with plastic food). The nature of the game usually attracts girls, but boys will sometimes play as well, usually with some reluctance. In one episode of Pee-wee's Playhouse, Pee-wee, Miss Yvonne, and several playhouse denizens play this game.
Every person assumes a role, and then they invent household scenarios in which everyone takes a part: getting food, doing chores, fixing things, going places, "making babies" (with varying degrees of realism), caring for the younger children, feeding the pets, welcoming the husband home from work, etc.

gifs don't have to be animated you know. Just cos it's a still image doesn't mean it's not a gif.

I don't know but I wouldn't be surprised if Hugh Laurie just went outside, dressed as a house, found some random person's house, asked if he could paint a house on it and the owner just got a camcorder out.

House should be inside the house so House would be painting a house on a house inside a house while wearing a house.

My dad basically nailed every episode of House.
>Problem arises
>House has some conflict with coworkers
>House makes false diagnosis, that from a medical standpoint (my dad's a doctor) is total ********
>Around the 40:00 mark, House makes the correct diagnosis
>Cures the ailment
>Resolves conflict with coworkers

no ****. But the interesting part is the drama.
what does he say to the people?
what do the people do? (e.g. pro baseball player, high end goverment worker, death row inmate)
what happens in clinic
what racist/sexist/insulting line is he going to throw out next.
