* In the Creator/AlanDeanFoster novelisation of ''Film/{{Alien}}'', Captain Dallas accuses his science officer Ash of deliberately allowing the ChestBurster to grow inside Kane's body. When Ash asks how he was supposed to know this was happening, Dallas snaps that he doesn't know as he's a pilot, not a medical doctor.

** Proudly continued by the Emergency Medical Hologram (EMH) from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' who was in fact an actual placeholder. (That is, he was ''supposed'' to be a supplement to organic doctors in emergencies, but ended up filling in for the chief medical officer when he was killed in the first fifteen minutes of the pilot.)
*** FridgeBrilliance: The EMH was programmed with the knowledge of many prominent doctors. Maybe it included some of their personality quirks -- like McCoy's catch phrase?

** And in ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', Bones tries to give the line while being transported aboard an enemy ship with Spock, but is interrupted. What Bones isn't this time is a RiddleForTheAges.[[note: Given the context of what he was about to be asked, the completion of the line is probably, "fighter pilot"]]
