What do you say to someone who says "You switched it" or "It's not the same one"?

Practice to the point that that's no longer an option.

I assume you mean the presentation as well as the technique. I practice my moves until they are flawless and yet the few times I have been called out I realize that what was lacking was my presentation.

Some people will just call you out regardless of how good your presentation is.

Yeah, some will. Those are the people that are going to just start throwing things out no matter if it makes sense or not. Personally, I just laugh it off and subtly point out that they're just reaching for answers.

Tell them they are right and then to the rest of the audience, cover your face, point to them and shake your head and mouth "noooo".

Done that too. That's actually a lot of fun. I tend to get this mock apathetic look on my face and go "you got me. That's absolutely how it works" then I smirk and go right back into the act.

I like one of Gazzo's answers. "Yeah, yeah. Fake thumb, magnets, I've heard it all..."

I also remember both Vernon and Harry Anderson tossing away one of the linking rings because it had a "break" in it. They got a (gaffed!!)replacement and went on with the show with none the wiser.

By dismissing the obvious answers (even if they're right!), you've answered their suspicions and can get on with the job of entertaining them.
