House dating cuddy
Cuddy refuses to discuss why she's never fired House.(Technically she can't, House has tenure and can only be fired by the board acting unanimously, but they despise House more than anyone.) However, when pressed, Cuddy will point out that House has saved about one patient a week.We can guess that although House has been fired several times, he may have, like Foreman, have been fired for saving the life of a patient at the expense of his job.We also know that Cuddy continued to defend House even though Foreman pointed out that if every doctor acted like House, the mortality rate among patients would skyrocket.During a conversation with Foreman, he quips that if Foreman stays: "No one's going to be happy here...and Cuddy's going to end up pregnant." Foreman, caught off guard by the comment, quickly asks House: "Are you saying...This kiss stirs those old feelings up to the surface.
However, when push (literally) comes to shove, Cuddy has always backed House.

The recent events surrounding Eric Foreman's employment have given some insights into Cuddy's motivations.
Fast forward to about five years before the series starts.
House is known as the one of the greatest diagnosticians in the world, but is practically unemployable due to his inability to deal with anyone—supervisors, subordinates, staff or patients.
