I'm a Doctor Not a... List

The following is a list of all the "I'm a doctor, not a..." statements which we have ever heard. I have included the single variation on the wording of the phrase which Dr. McCoy used in "The Corbomite Maneuver". I have often wondered if the EMH's fondness for using this phrase is an indicator that some part of his personality is based on that of Dr. McCoy. We'll never really know, but it's nice to think that some part of McCoy was still active and working in 2377. As usual, any corrections or updates are welcome and should include the episode it's from, and if possible an idea of where in the episode the statement is made.
