Call and response

The correct response to the greeting "Top o' the mornin' to you!" is "And the rest of the day to yourself!". (Thanks laszlo.)

Funny you mention that it's the _correct_ response.

Personally I love coming back with any response to a cliche - preferrably one which neuters it or changes its meaning, and usually just to see how the other person reacts.
Eg "Opposites attract." Yes but "Birds of a feather flock together"...
and "Time heals all wounds" ... "And creates more like arthritis"...
And my favourite: "It's the thought that counts" yes but "The road to hell is paved with good intentions."
