I've written some pretty esoteric and impossible SFX cues in my time, usually ending in something like (I'M SORRY, NEIL) or (HAVE FUN, AMY) but I am heartened to know that Douglas Adams bested me long ago. From the original Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio script, Fit the Sixth, as our heroes encounter the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal:
TRILLIAN (Screams) Look out!

F/X HUGE ARM SWEEPS DOWN AND PICKS THEM UP. THE
      MONSTER ROLLS HIS EYES WHICH TURN RED, GREEN,
      THEN A SORT OF MAUVY PINK. IT RUNS ITS TONGUE
      ROUND ITS LIPS, BLINKS A COUPLE OF TIMES AND THEN
      MENTALLY REGISTERS THAT IT HAS JUST REMEMBERED
      WHAT 10 ACROSS IN THE GALACTIC TIMES CROSSWORD
      WAS TODAY, MAKES A MENTAL NOTE TO WRITE IT IN
      WHEN IT'S NEXT GOT A COUPLE OF MINUTES

CAST (Shouts, etc...)
He would've been 60 a few days ago, that one.
