You are, without a doubt, the healthiest son of a bitch I've ever seen wandering the Big MT. Ain't got no use for an old digital sawbones like me.

Sink Auto-Doc is an artificial personality mounted in a Mark IX Auto-Doc found in the Sink in 2281.


A highly advanced Auto-Doc model installed in the Sink, this particular unit was provided with an artificial personality based on stereotypical Wild West doctors, complete with an accent and contemporary vernacular. As a bonus effect, Dr Mobius programmed it to snore or talk in its "sleep" while in stand-by mode.

However, beyond the surface, the Auto-Doc is easily the most powerful unit of its kind, capable of performing any kind of medical procedure on its patients, from merely trimming the hair to the most complex, life-saving procedures. Unfortunately, most of the holotapes it requires for full functioning are missing, stashed away across the Big MT. His core programming, for example, is secured in the Y-17 medical facility.
