Some patient walked into clinic with a game of thrones shirt on (specifically one that had the knights watch creed on it) : 
Me: 'So one of my friends has a theory that jon snow is going to be a dragon rider because he has targaryan blood, so he can, BUT, bran is going to somehow control them through his wog powers and all that stuff."

Patient after a minor surgery: "Hey doc, these norco's probably won't do the trick, how about some percocet 10's?"
Me: "No, the norco's should be okay, if you're having a ton of pain, you should probably come to the ER."
Patient: "Well, okay. How about some oral dilaudid instead?"

I have a facebook page!

You should like it. I don't really know why, but you definitely should. Updates maybe? That's gotta be it. Do it for the updates.
Walking into the ED during a motocross race weekend...

Me: "Hey man, so you've tested positive for meth a couple of times already. If this one comes back positive, we're going to have to put off your surgery for a while. Have you used recently?"

When when of my co-residents asks how the day went after a patient lost 4 liters of blood...

We have new PA's that we work with that take overnight call. This is currently how I spend most of my mornings during their sign out...

Patient: "My heel pain started like 10 years ago when I was in a motorcycle accident. The bone was fractured, but luckily it wasn't broken."

I had my pandora station in the OR yesterday on random and taylor swift's "style" came on...

OR tech: "So why's it thumbs upped?"

(To the scrub tech at the end of a supracondylar pinning, motioning to the end of the k-wire as I went to cut it off)
Me: 'You might want to grab the tip right there, it's about to shoot at you.'

I saw one of my patients that I operated on driving home today...
