Default If you could only have 3 kinds of hops what would they be?

Ok so I'm about to embark on the home grown hop journey but don't want a ton of different kinds to keep up with and store. I'm thinking 3 varieties. Here's what I need.

One hop for basic pale ales, I brew Ed's Haus Pale ale quite a bit. I'm thinking Cascade is the easy choice here.

One hop good for lagers.

One more just to have variety.

I brew mainly basic session beers (pale ales, ambers, wits, basic lagers) but would be nice if the hops could be used on other styles like IPA's and stouts.

A clean bittering hop, Cascade or Centennial and Northern Brewer.

I think this thread topic was going on the other day but I'll bite.

Cascade for pales.
Saaz for Belgian witbiers.
Fuggles for English ales.

3 of my favorite styles with my 3 favorite hops for those styles.

Cascade for Americans, Saaz for Germans, and Warrior or something strong for bittering. I had 2 vines last summer, hope to have 4 more this summer...on order.
