One of the most memorable catchphrases of all time is Dr. Leonard McCoy's 'I'm a doctor, not a..." quote. Dr. McCoy would use his famous line throughout the original Star Trek series to make light of many stressful situations. 

"I'm a doctor, not a..." would live on through various other Star Trek doctors and even parodies to become the staple in pop culture history that it is today. Many also believed that the quote started with 'damn it Jim,' but the Enterprise doctor actually never used that expletive with the line until the 2009 Star Trek movie.

But how well do you know about the famous words of Dr. Leonard McCoy? Think you know each quote well enough to tell if they're fake or not? Take the quiz below to find out!
