I use a line from Aqua Teen Hunger Force:

"Powers... I got em."

Shake uses this line to explain how he broke into Carl's house. It gets a laugh usually, especially if someone in the audience has seen the show and understands the references.

"I took the blue pill."

Spec: "Hey, where'd you learn that?"
Magician: "Jesus."

And then on to the next trick if you're doing another. Its best to break off that conversation thread of "How'd you learn that." as quick as possible and move on to something else.

Short, sweet, and too the point.

I love that one! I'll probably only use it when I'm showing people like my parents, who I know have seen the Matrix. Oh well, it's still a great line, thanks for sharing.

there is an infamous name in magic, he tells no one his real name. they call him mr. x. say he tought you. or you can always tell them you didnt learn the trick, explain that what you did was real magic. usualy when people ask about how i did something or where i learned it, i give them a blank stare. i say nothing. thats how pros like criss angel and david blaine do it.
criss did one where a kid asked how he did something and he says come here and whispers into her ear "its magic"

Spec."How'd ya do that?"
me"well.. I was once wanting a job at a grocerie store. in this case, Kroger..." and patter on from there... (WARNING!!! ONLY WORKS ON SMALL CROUDS. PEOPLE WILL GET BORED WITH YOUR STORY AND MIGHT LEAVE.)


silly boy, IQ doesn't change with age... normally.
