Dr Obvious is in the house

... or maybe it was just too soon after watching Hitchcock's "Psycho":

"Patient also has a diagnosis of ringed nose phenomenon."

Doc has a gift for understatement

"The arm and wrist were removed and there was noted to be stability of the joint."

In Soviet Russia, speech wrecks you!

"Mr. Xxxxovich is a pleasant elderly male from unbearable Russia."
