“Do you realize,” House said, “that if we got married, your name would be Robert Chase House?” Chase looked at his quizzically. “Which you do very well, I might add,” House mock-leered.
Chase thought for a second. “Does that mean you’d be Greg House Chase?”

“I think I got the picture,” Chase cut in, cheeks now crimson. House smiled.
After a while, Chase spoke. “So was that supposed to be a proposal?”
