I min favorit bland läkarserier, House, har manusförfattarna nått nya höjder när de drar in vindaloo curry i en relationsdiskussion. Från avsnitt 10, säsong 2:
Stacy: Our relationship is like an addiction. It’s… like…
House: Really good drugs?
Stacy: No, it’s like… vindaloo curry.
House: Ok, sure…
Stacy: Really really hot Indian curry they make with red chilli peppers.
House: I know what it is! Didn’t think it was addictive.
Stacy: You’re abrasive and annoying and come on way too strong, like… vindaloo curry. When you’re crazy about curry, that’s fine but no matter how much you love curry, you have too much of it, it takes the roof of your mouth off. And then you never want to see curry for a really really long time but you wake up one day and you think… god I really miss curry.
