If someone catches me I would say "so you figured out what I did but I bet you wont figure out this trick. Then show them your best trick.

All I can contribute to this discussion is a situation that happened recently where I'd done a trick which was of the choose-lose-find a card variety, and I'd successfully (and hopefully amazingly) found the selected card. I was asked "How did you do that?", and I said (tongue in cheek) "Well, I've done that particular trick 51 times previously and failed every time, and I was counting on the law of averages helping me out eventually". It got a laugh so it worked for me.

A few years ago, I was doing the Ambitious Card Routine for a young boy, around 8, and he asked how I did it. I told him that if he went home and sat in his bed, put a card in the middle of a deck, snap his fingers, and wish really hard, it would come true. If it didn't work, he had to wish harder.

I think we should remember that we do not have to fill our performances with words. Often a smile, a bow of the head, a hand gesture of "thanks" or silence are good responses. Many people don't know how to respond to magic so I put these comments in the category of compliments. Perhaps "thank you" is all we need to say

Any ideas for a line to use when a spectator drops a deck of cards that's been "set up" a certain way? (I always carry a spare, in case of such moments)

Glad you like it. That was pretty magical, wasn't it?

Or a good answer for any situation is
"Who am I?! Who are you?! What am I doing here?! Then start swatting imaginary bugs. They won't ask you anymore questions. Smile

A variant:
"If you want to know the truth (lean in confidentially), I think Oswald had an accomplice when he shot Kennedy."

This almost sounds like a line I heard on "Big Bang Theory," Sheldon knows a secret (Penny never finished Community College) but is sworn not to tell (which is driving him crazy!) After Sheldon has been doped by Howard to shut him up, ("I drank milk that tasted funny.") Leonard tries to get the secret, Sheldon leans in confidentially and says; "Mom smokes in the car! Jesus is OK with it, but we can't tell Dad!"

70 years performing magic...50 years as a full time pro., and, I have NEVER worked streets. (If you're a good magician, you can actually get booked and, get PAID for presenting your act.) I'm certainly not the world's greatest magician, but, I worked all over the USA, and I was never at liberty. Managers called me, to ask when I was available.

How did you do that??

*Staring in a serious way*

When I was a kid I was bitten by a Wizard.

*They start to laugh*

I've been cursed with these powers ever since!

In a closeup mentalism context I'll reply, "I'll let you in on a little secret, but there needs to be a small offering of $1". Then, I will "teach" them how to find an ESP card, etc using a pendulum. After, I'll do a serial number divination of the bill they lent me before returning it.

"How did you do that?" I don't know, I blacked out... was it at least good?

I like to actually give a plausible explanation ala Derren Brown to get rid of what he calls "how did you do that?" moments

or "well I'll tell you what it WASN'T"

or set this premise up beforehand IMHO
