This poorly constructed episode of House featured the main character sitting outside the principal's office because he lied about his identity and got into a fight while giving a speech at Career Day.
He was at this school because he wanted to get Rachel into it. He thought that might be a way to prove to Cuddy that he actually does care about her and her happiness.
Through a couple flashbacks, we saw just how angry Cuddy got at the small things - such as House using her toothbrush - all of which led to her accusing him of being nothing but self-centered. House pretty much admitted this in the end, inspired by a couple students he met at the school, but also said he could do better. He wanted another chance with Cuddy to work on his selfishness. She gave him to him.
House: They're all morons and everybody lies.
Gabe: Wait, if everybody lies, then that means you're lying right now.
House: I didn't say everybody always lies... Aristotle.
