<p>its new territory for me and i completely drew a blank when it happened. come on it happens to everyone so any ideas. </p>

<p>especially liking anything by
people along those lines</p>

<p>Intelligent quotes? I don't think you'll find anything 'intelligent' as a comeback, but... the prototypical comeback is alone the lines of:</p>

<p>I may be an idiot but at least I don't [insert cheap shot here]</p>

<p>flash your SAT scores</p>

<p>j/k :D</p>

<p>just use the word "troglodyte".</p>

<p>As in...<br>
other person: "You're an idiot."
You (almost muttering): "...troglodyte."</p>

<p>Works everytime.</p>

<p>Your mom.</p>

<p>Haha, well, on a more serious note... "Did you come up with that on your own?" it will give you some time to think on a next answer 8))</p>

<p>Go to and search on idiot. You'll find lots of quotes. I looked briefly and didn't find anything suitable but if you spend some time there you'll find something.</p>
