8) When some asks me to do a trick again, I always tell them I'm sorry, but I only brought enough magic dust to do it once.

Just say: It will cost you $100 to do it again.
IF they are willing to pay $100, who cears if they figure it out then( of course they wont pay ).
:D :D :D

If they say "can you do it again" just say something like "yeah, I can do it whenever i want."

if they just say "do it again" say something like, "how about I show you something else."

I've tried these responses and they all work wonderfully, but I still have a problem with them asking me to do a magic trick. Whenever I do a cool trick they tell me to do it again the next day, because that's what they remember me by. If I show them something so they forget the previous trick they just tell me to do that trick again. Am I going to have to do magic every single day for these people, or is there some way to get around this. By the way this is in school during lunch, so I can't really avoid these people(assigned seats).

If they're ur friends just try to change the subject, or just say no.

If they're not ur friends talk to someone and try to move ur seat? Who knows. Believe me, I've had annoying people like that trying to figure stuff out too. It's hard to deal with.

:(

I know that problem, last year I did some magic for a few people in my English class, before I knew it they were telling me to do it again in front of other people as well. basically there are two things you can do, either just do a different trick, or drive them crazy and not do anything at all.

If they get REALLY PUSHY I just tell them "once is a show, twice is a lesson. I charge $100 a lesson, cash only please." They think I am joking but they don't ask any more.

This sounds like a drug commercial. "Just say no". :P

But seriously though.. never tried.. if they ask tell them "If you wanna see a rerun, go watch (insert tv channel here)" or something of that nature.

It's a good gag to carry around an official card or paper with your signature saying (in funny language) that you will not repeat a trick (or reveal a secret).

[Note: This is a copy of a post I made in “Post your favorite quote(s)“ I think this is the Topic it belongs to, I just saw that one first.]

She: "Can you do that again?"
Me: "I sure can!",
then I go to the next trick or talk about something else.

He: "I didn't see it! Do it again."
Me: "Now who's fault is that?"
or "Next time make sure to pay more attention."

She: "Please do it again."
Me: "Only if you French Kiss me."
If she does then what the edited I'll do it again...
and you would too admit it!!!

He: "Please let me see it again."
Me: "OK, but really quick 'cause I'm in a hurry",
then I make a very quick movement of my hands
and say "Done!"

She: "I want to see that again."
Me: "Well, I'll video tape it for you so you can watch it as many times as you want. But that's going to cost you..."

He: "Do that again!"
Me: "Do what?",
then pretend I don't know what he's talking about.

She: "I really want to see it again."
Me: "I bet you do."

He: "Can you repeat that?"
Me: Repeat the last words I said

She: "I want to see that trick again."
Me: "They all do."
or "You're not the first one."

He: "I want to see it again."
Me: "To bad you can't Time Travel."

She: "Can I see it again?"
Me: "Not unless I repeat it! And that's not going to happen."

He: "Would you repeat it?"
Me: "Yeah, eventualy."
or "Well, if I run out of new ones."

She: "Show me that trick you did the other day."
Me: "You must be confusing me with someone else."

She: "Can you show my friends that trick."
Me: Whispering "Shhhhhh... it's our secret."

She: "Hey, do that trick again!"
Me: "I feel used!"
or "Is that all I am to you? Entertaintment."
or "You only care about my tricks."

He: "Do that one again."
Me: "OK",
then I do a different one.
Then he says: "No, not that one.",
so I tell him: "Oh, right... it was this one.",
and I do yet another different trick.
Again he complains: "That's not the one",
so I finally say: "I'm sorry... you think it's easy being a magician."

He: "Would you show me that trick again?"
Me: Shoked "Haven't you heard about the Magician's Code?",
then I add: "We have to swear, under penalty of death, never to repeat a trick."

She: "Can you do it one more time?"
Me: "Sorry, it's against my religion."
or "I can go to prison for that!"


Well, I can keep on going... but these should be enough to get your Imagination going... this will give you some ideas of the type of answers you can give them. I know not all of them are good. In fact, you might not like any of them. (Well, screw you!) I would like for you guys and gals to keep posting more ideas. And, if you don't think that any of these are funny, then you have really bad taste. :lol: Now, don't take me seriously.

Hope this post was somewhat helpful. And if it wasn't SUE ME!

Instead of stating price i find this term much more useable:
''Sorry, once is a performance, twice is a lesson. And I charge for lessons''
That's about all I can say, everything else I was going to recommend has allready been said.
