"You're wrong" or "I'm right"?

Either works.

Or "shut up" or "@#!* you" or "told ya" or "die, female dog" or "you idiot" or "HA! ha" or "yeah, right" or...

It depends on whether I think the other person is an ass.  If it's just an amicable disagreement, no.
That's cool how you referenced a case.

My favorite is "You're just mad." Works as a retort for everything, and after a while, get's 'em pretty mad.

^ When many of you enter law school (or have participated in debates in class discussion during undergrad (which I also did, though I am also currently in law school)), you will realize that it is often much more beneficial, from a practical and tautological standpoint, to allow your opponent the last word..

The above is true, with that being said, simply due to the quite obvious fact that if you have directed the oral argument in the proper manner, leaving them with the last word when they have made a noticeable blunder is truly more beneficial, practically speaking.

This is wrong.

No.  Penis.
I do not like hats.
I do not like them on bats.
I would not like them near cats.
I would not like them made out of mats.

So your opponent loses their penis (if they had one) and you have the last penis?

No, I just have to have penis.
I do not like hats.
I do not like them on bats.
