What line of dialogue from a Dan Simmons novel do you think is the funniest?

--- READ NO FURTHER TO AVOID POSSIBLE SPOILERS ---

Hyperion:
"'You know what your fucking problem is, Merin? You’re always sticking your fucking two cents in. Awwwww.'"

[When it's my time, I hope I come up with as great a setup and exit line as Mike Osho.]

Flashback:
"'Infantry closing in. And Tanks, Sato. Tanks!!'
"'You're welcome, Bottom-san[.]'"

Hard Freeze:
"'Why? Did you shoot your second husband with it?'"

Tragedy is just comedy that happens to someone else.

I thought comedy was tragedy plus time?...

That is also true. Someday I will find my own life hysterical, probably after I'm dead.

For the record, here is my entire vocabulary of manageable words: fuck, shit, piss, cunt, goddamn, motherfucker, asshole, peepee, and poopoo. A quick analysis will show some redundancy here.
