From "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"...

Marvin the robot:
"Don't feel you have to take any notice of me, please."
Trillian:
"What are you supposed to do with a manically- depressed robot?"
Marvin:
"You think YOU'VE got problems, what are you supposed to do if you ARE a manically- depressed robot? No, don't try to answer that; I am 50,000 times more intelligent than you and even I don't know the answer. It gives me a headache just trying to think DOWN to your level."
