Dr. Chris Taub joined House's elite team during the show's fourth season.

Taub was a successful plastic surgeon before coming to Princeton Plainsboro. However, he lost his ability to practice after he had an affair with a nurse.

Taub is a stubbon individual, which enables him to stand up to House when needed. Near the end of season five, the economy began to affect Taub, as his financial portfolio isn't very strong these days.

House: You talked to Wilson.
Taub: He has very girly handwriting, by the way.

House Quotes

Taub: You know he just doesn't want to live in pain.
House: Life is pain! I wake up every morning in pain! Work is pain! You know how many times I just wanted to give up? How many times I've thought about ending it?

People don't get what they deserve. They just get what they get. There's nothing any of us can do about it.
