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.

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?
MCCOY: He's dead, Jim.
MCCOY: I'm a doctor, not an undertaker.

I'm a doctor, not a happy, well-adjusted person!
