Things you don't want to hear the doctor say while he performs surgery on you

I went in a couple of days ago to have some minor surgery done (although "minor" surgery, as the saying goes, is what they perform on other people). It was no big deal, just an outpatient procedure with local anesthetic. The doctor, however, was -- how should I put this -- a little eccentric. And he made me realize there are some things you would prefer not to hear your doctor say while he's operating on you.

Such as:
  • "Oops!"
  • "Dammit!"
  • [Answering cell phone] "Hello... I can't talk now, I'm performing surgery... OK, bye."
