Ring Lardner walked to the middle of the stage, took a sip of water and solemnly announced, “I’ve known what it is to be hungry, but I always went right to a restaurant.”

Ring Lardner was a sportswriter and short-story writer best known for this brilliant bit of dialogue:

Until next time . . . I love you
