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.

“Hey” he said “do you know the fucking Shrike is standing right behind you?”

What made this extra funny was the way Victor Bevine (the audio book narrator) delivered it.
