Looking at them straight in the eye and challenging them seems to work every time. Plus everything OSOD said below.
Appeal to authority is just one of the many logical fallacies. Your example would fall under Ad Hominem.

I guess the irony was that since a logical discussion was out of the question, we were to choose a logical fallacy to replace it.

Yeah, I know, I have a weird sense of humor.
