“Hot, Bothered and Bedeviled”

YAKKO: Wakko, anything in your gag bag that can handle this?
WAKKO: Well, Yakko…
YAKKO: Dot: comments, analysis?
DOT: Nothing, Yakko.
YAKKO: Bones?
BONES: Darnit, Yakko, I’m a doctor, not a magician!

Say hello to Star Trek’s own Dr. Leonard “Bones” McCoy and one of his two famous catchphrases, in one of the very best gags of the series’ entire run. Even the setup is great, with Yakko speaking in a Shatnerian staccato and the ST theme pulling duty as a musical cue.

The German-born Siegfried Fischbacher and Roy Horn formed a popular Las Vegas double act consisting of magic tricks, animal tricks, and magic animal tricks. The show ran from 1990 until 2003, when Roy was accidentally mangled by one of their signature white tigers. We’ll be hearing more about them later on.
