"Or the child could get my looks and her brains" after which the whole audience had to laugh it out ;)

That is a rip-off of George Bernard Shaw:

http://shawquotations.blogspot.ca/2015/04/a-child-with-your-brains-and-my-looks.html

"This definition, of course, must have borrowed from the anecdote alluded to in Hesketh Pearson’s Bernard Shaw: His Life and Personality (p. 310-311) when “a strange lady giving an address in Zürich wrote him a proposal, thus: “You have the greatest brain in the world, and I have the most beautiful body; so we ought to produce the most perfect child.” Shaw asked: “What if the child inherits my body and your brains?”"
