I loved the list of interview replies and had to hoot with laughter when I saw one that I have actually used. It turned out to be my best interview ever.
I got hopelessly lost and had to call the company to get someone to collect me (Was that on the list as well?).
I arrived horribly dishevelled because the weather was awful and said, "I'm really sorry to be so late, but I can only stay half an hour because I have another bus connection at 4:00 this afternoon." He looked at me and burst out laughing. Then he said, "Well, we'll organise you a ride to the station now and you'll just have to come back for a second interview. So let's get down to business, why should I hire you?"
I replied, "Because I'm so full of potential right now that if you don't hire me you'll be completely missing out on the best opportunity you'll ever see walk through your door."
He said, "In that case, you'll definitely have to come back. Let's see about that ride."
I got the job (of course) and had the best time ever at that company.
