That's precisely what happened during mine as well. The worst part about it was when I answered one question by stating some theory that my advisor had told me word-for-word about a month prior. After my response to that question, he looked at me and said "There is no such thing as the theory you just stated, where on earth did you come up with such an idea??".
I looked at him mouth completely agape, sure I would fail the defense.
10 minutes after being asked to leave the room, they're all shaking my hand calling me doctor.
