A quipportunity is the fleeting moment when a clever response is both timely, and funny.

Etymology: The word is an amalgam of 'quip' and 'opportunity' capitalizing on 1) the shared 'p' and 2) the fact that the 'portunity' portion of the word opportunity carries all of the meaning even without the displaced prefix.
I recently had a missed quipportunity when I told my sister that we saw the 2012 "Spider-Man" movie, and she asked how it was. I said it was "awesome," but the missed quipportunity was to reply, "Amazing" (since the name of the movie is "The Amazing Spider-Man").
