Greatest Doctor’s Lines?

My good buddy and I were recently talking about the greatest lines we’ve heard from our doctors.

He was telling me about a visit some time ago, when he was struggling with his control.  The doctor was looking through his downloaded reports and lab records, and being a bit of a smart ass, shook his head a bit then looked up at him.

Doc: “You wear a pump right?”
Buddy: “yes”
Doc: “is it on…?!”

What is the greatest line you’ve heard from your doc?  Was it good natured, or was it intended as a jab at you?  How did you respond?  Were you offended, or did you shrug it off with a nod of recognition and new determination?
