I loved him, I still do. People always talk about him as being so mean and being a jerk.. Well yes he was some of those things some of the time but he still makes me laugh, his view of the world still makes me laugh, the weird combination of great intelligence and skills combined with a brain of an 8-year old, I just find that completely enchanting.
Hugh Laurie being asked about the character Gregory House (via survivachick)
We couldn’t believe our eyes today - Decoding Hugh now has 100 followers! When we started out with this we just flew by the seats of our pants. All we knew was that Hugh’s tweets raised some questions for many people - What is he referring to? Who is he talking about? I don’t understand cricket! were just some reactions popping up on Twitter.
Someone jokingly said that it takes a village to ‘decode’ Hugh’s tweets sometimes and that sealed it. A Decoder was required. A few research geeks thought they’d go out and collect the background information, so their friends wouldn’t have to wonder and guess. Decoding Hugh was born.
We never expected to have followers other than the people we knew anyway, in real life or on Twitter. It is only down to Hugh’s wide appeal, fierce intelligence and wit that this tumblr blog has become so popular.
So, a big, big Thank You to all our followers, old and new - and here’s to many more tweets from @HughLaurie so we can keep doing something we enjoy so much.
(Special mention and Thank You to survivachick for her fantastic gifs!)
Favorite House/Cuddy Scenes (in no particular order) → I’ve always loved this scene because essentially I think it’s hilarious how Cuddy is startled by seeing him there, but after watching it again, I realized that this scene is also the polar opposite of their first scene together. In the first scene there’s a lot of tension that’s obvious, and the difference between whether it’s sexual or just tension is hard to see in it, but in this scene there’s no tension at all, and it’s a much lighter scene, and it’s almost playful because of how they respond to one another in it. It’s a warmer scene because unlike their first scene where they’re both making jabs at the other, in this scene they’re actually friendly with one another. There are smiles shared, and the way House is looking at her in the 3rd and 4th gifs as she walks away, it’s a look of admiration, and respect, and maybe even love.
