I'm currently reading a book by Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller fame. In one of the stories he tells he talks about the best pickup line ever used on him. This is a paraphrase:

"On the billboard outside our theater my name is written in huge letters. My name is also written inside the theater and I open and close the show with the line, "I'm Penn Jillette and this is my partner Teller." After the show Teller and I stand outside the exit and talk to anyone who wants to talk to us. Beside me is a huge sign with my name, again in huge letters. One night the last person hanging around was a woman who walked up to me and said, "F*** me if I'm wrong, but is your name Debbie?"

I laughed out loud when I read that. It really is a great line.
