Re: I'm a doctor, not a

I seem to recall another variant, one possibly from 70s-ish fanfic, and one possibly from Kelley himself.

"I'm a doctor, not an actor."
"I'm an actor, not a doctor."

If I remember it right, there's an exchange in "Star Trek Rhapsody" that goes something like

McCoy: I'm a doctor--

Kirk: Not an actor!

McCoy: Not a MILKMAN.

Kirk: What does THAT mean?
And I'm sorry, he's dead, Jim...

Wasn't there a parody (can't remember what format -- film, prose, comic...?) wherein Kirk (or someone) indicates an injured man and tells McCoy to tend to his wounds. Bones then angrily says, "I'm a doctor, not a... oh, okay," then goes to tend to the man?

From SNL:

Kirk: "He's choking!"
McCoy: "I'm a doctor, not a...oh, okay, sure!"

@Sir Rhosis

That was from a Saturday Night Live sketch were the Enterprise was repurposed into a cruise line.

A similar exchange was part of the Carol Burnett parody from the early '90s.

It was a SNL skit, however, Kirk, Spock and McCoy had retired and gone into the restaurant business. One of the patrons was choking on his dinner.

Later Dana Carvey showed up as the new city health inspector ... Khan.

This was all during one of Shatner's appearances on SNL.

Re: I'm a doctor, not a

I remember reading about a convention many years ago, between Star Trek 3 and Star Trek 4. There was a lot of speculation about Saavik being pregnant with Spock's child. Apparently DeForest Kelley was on stage doing Qand A. Someone asked if he'd deliver Saavik's baby. Someone shouted out from the audience, "He's a doctor, not an obstatrician!"

I read that and thought, isn't that kinda the same thing?
