Not the Doctor

I was listening to Pandora this morning, and this Alanis Morissette song totally clicked with some of my recent thoughts about House and Cuddy, especially in light of the comments I read on the latest episode. This is for pgrabia .


"Not The Doctor"

I don't want to be the filler if the void is solely yours
I don't want to be your glass of single malt whiskey
Hidden in the bottom drawer
I don't want to be a bandage if the wound is not mine
Lend me some fresh air
I don't want to be adored for what I merely represent to you
I don't want to be your babysitter
You're a very big boy now
I don't want to be your mother
I didn't carry you in my womb for nine months
Show me the back door

Visiting hours are 9 to 5 and if I show up at 10 past 6
Well I already know that you'd find some way to sneak me in and oh
Mind the empty bottle with the holes along the bottom
You see it's too much to ask for and I am not the doctor

I don't want to be the sweeper of the egg shells that you walk upon
And I don't want to be your other half, I believe that 1 and 1 make 2
I don't want to be your food or the light from the fridge on your face
At midnight, hey
What are you hungry for
I don't want to be the glue that holds your pieces together
I don't want to be your idol
See this pedestal is high and I'm afraid of heights
I don't want to be lived through
A vicarious occasion
Please open the window

Visiting hours are 9 to 5 and if I show up at 10 past 6
Well I already know that you'd find some way to sneak me in and oh
Mind the empty bottle with the holes along the bottom
You see it's too much to ask for and I am not the doctor

I don't want to live on someday when my motto is last week
I don't want to be responsible for your fractured heart
And it's wounded beat
I don't want to be a substitute for the smoke you've been inhaling
What do you thank me
What do you thank me for

Visiting hours are 9 to 5 and if I show up at 10 past 6
Well I already know that you'd find some way to sneak me in and oh
Mind the empty bottle with the holes along the bottom
You see it's too much to ask for and I am not the doctor

OMG this is SO. PERFECT. Especially this line: I don't want to be the sweeper of the egg shells that you walk upon.
I really do feel like sometimes House feels as though he has to walk on eggshells around Cuddy, made very apparent when House found out that Taub had told Cuddy about a procedure he'd wanted to do. He'd made some perverted comment about Cuddy and he tried very hard to verbally defend himself. It's been made more evident by the fact that he feels that he needs to lie to her.

I also particularly like the third verse; IMO, House really does view Cuddy as his last chance at happiness (even if I do think that he loves her.) I really really want to make a music video for this now...I think it sums up so many different viewpoints and thoughts people had after last episode. And the title makes this song even more appropriate.

I was so hoping you'd say that.
