Oh lord, Buckaroo Banzai is probably the poster child for this idea, if anything is. It's dialogue is littered with priceless jewels that make you wonder if there actually is a line, or if you can only accurately graph clever/stupid with the overlap of a Venn diagram

Dr. Lizardo: Laugh(a) while you can, monkeyboy!

The President: Buckaroo, I don't know what to say. Lectroids? Planet 10? Nuclear extortion? A girl named "John"?

And again, the Prez.: What are you talking about, man? Some kind of race war in New Jersey?

Buckaroo Banzai: John Parker, take this wheel. Just... just hold on, that's good. It flies like a truck.
John Parker: Good. {pause} What is a truck?

Buckaroo Banzai: {as the thermopod is in free-fall} Can't you fly this thing?
John Parker: I'm a diplomat! I failed flight school!

New Jersey: Why is there a watermelon there?
Reno Nevada: {after a pause} I'll tell you later.

Scooter Lindley (who is about 10 years old): Get away from that car, or I'll drink your blood!
Secretary of Defense: {noticing Scooter is holding an automatic rifle}Whatcha got there, son? That's not... real, is it?
Scooter Lindley: {fires a shot to the side} Get 'em up!

ETA: Hahah! I actually say that to people IRL.
