the tl;dr of it would be in the middle of discussing his practice area, the interviewer made a passing reference to "Blurred Lines" and I responded with "What rhymes with hedge funds?"
Turns out he didn't know the song all that well. And me singing it really, really poorly didn't jog his memory.
Different interview: Kept pronouncing the name of the firm wrong. Each time I did, he was sure to mention the firm's name in his next sentence, enunciating the misspelled word more and more. By the fourth time I did it, he practically shouted the name of the firm at me.
Happier story: Partner invites me into the room, then tells me he needs to step out to run to the hospitality suite for a second, but I should make myself at home. A minute later, there's a knock on the door, and I realize he's locked himself out. So I answer it. "Hi, I'm [Me], it's so great to meet you, please come inside." He was also carrying a giant handful of candy, and spent my first answer sorting through it. In the middle of explaining why I decided to go to law school, he mutters, "damn, no reese's cups." We ended up talking about candy for the next five minutes. Callback.
