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 comedian."
"I'm a doctor, not a screenwriter"
"I'm a doctor, not a vet!"
...upon seeing M'Ress enter the sickbay.
The appointment did not end well.
I'm a doctor, not a stylist.
"I'm a doctor, not a Family Feud contestant!" (Most common answers. "Society of Space Doctors said...")
I LOVE it!!! An absolutely perfect comeback.
^ 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.
Made me smile.
"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.)
Navigator NCC-2120 USS Entente
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?
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."
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?
Leonard, I'm a physicist not a hippie.
Kirk: "He's choking!"
McCoy: "I'm a doctor, not a...oh, okay, sure!"
That was from a Saturday Night Live sketch were the Enterprise was repurposed into a cruise line.
