If you were a screen writer on the original Star Trek, what phrases would you have given to Doctor McCoy (details inside)?

Asked by Kardamom (28792points) July 26th, 2017

Inspired by This Question, I got to thinking about Star Trek, the original series. Doctor Leonard McCoy, aka Bones, was always getting his hackles up and shouting stuff like, “I’m a doctor, not a bricklayer!”

If you could have been the scriptwriter, what would you have written? Fill in the blank for Bones: I’m a doctor, not a ___!

I’m a doctor, not a character in some TV series.

I’m a doctor, not a Barbie girl living in a Barbie world.

“Holy crap, Jim! Every single time there is some sort of crisis, it’s Dr. McCoy this and Dr. McCoy that! Can’t you and Mr. Spock ever do anything by yourselves? I’m a doctor, not a jack-of-all-trades.””
