Leonard McCoyBones (1) - A term used affectionately by Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) when addressing his starship's senior surgeon, Doctor Leonard McCoy (DeForest Kelley) on the sci-fi series STAR TREK/NBC/1966-69. The nickname was short for "sawbones," a traditional title for a doctor who up to the 19th century was noted for "sawing" off limbs.

"I'm a doctor, NOT an engineer"
  -- Bones, Star Trek
