Hugh Laurie Makes a House Call

The actor plays the ornery Dr. Gregory House on TV but says he respects physicians -- especially his well-mannered doctor dad.

Easy to Quit

There are a few of his habits he does not want his offspring to emulate -- like smoking. "I keep meaning to stop," he says. "Who doesn't?"

The problem? Quitting is too easy. "I found stopping to be not that hard, which made it hard," he says. Offering up a House-like rationale, Laurie adds, "Quitting is not so bad, so I can do it anytime and there is less incentive to stick with it."

It's more than likely a colleague would call House on this, saying, "I think your argument is specious." And House, with his trademark charm, would no doubt reply: "Yeah? Well, I think your tie is ugly."
