Lloyd Bentsen delivered a zinger for the ages after simpleton Dan Quayle compared himself favorably to Dem hero JFK. "You are no Jack Kennedy."

Bentsen's ticket went on to blow an a large lead and won a feeble 111 EVs, not including his home state, TX. https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5425248
Admiral James Stockdale, Ross Perot's running mate on the Reform ticket, tried a clever opening of, "who am I, why am I here?" It read as a doddering old man, perhaps unfairly.

Perot's ticket won the highest third party margin since the Bull Moose party. https://www.cbsnews.com/pictures/most-memorable-presidential-campaign-debate-moments/14/
