    While that is informative, I'm more interested in a humorous take. Less canon, more hilarity, if you will. In somewhat a similar vein [ahem] to the "five words" thread.

    "I'm a doctor, not an exorcist!"

    (That's actually a line from one of my books!)

    "I'm a doctor, not a vet!"

    ...upon seeing M'Ress enter the sickbay.

    The appointment did not end well.

    Sincerely,

    ^ I almost used 'humorist', but it felt too on the nose.

    And 'comedian' had better rhythm, I could imagine it in Kelley's voice.

    I always thought Kirk and McCoy's dialogue should have been reversed in "Star Trek II".

    KIRK: Is that all you've got to say? What about my performance?

    MCCOY: I'm a doctor, not a drama critic.

    Good one. :bolian:


    "I'm a doctor, not a computer programmer!"

    (Dr. McCoy's response in anger with the medical computer malfunctioning and not dispensing the correct medicine he ordered.)

    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? :lol:

    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."

    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.
