    Lightbulb What is the meaning of " twofer and rapier wit" here in this sentence?

    Hey guys, I was watching a movie called "Web Therapy", and in first 10 minutes of episode 9, a woman was talking to her husband and asked him to declare that her mother is insane. Her husband said: "No, I won't do that, you are insane",
    then the woman said: "OK, I'll ask Janowitz to do this", Then the man said, "You know what? you are insane, ask Janowitz for a twofer", Then the woman said: "That rapier wit".

    I can't understand the meaning of bold sentences although I know the meaning of "rapier wit" and "twofer".

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Jankowitz could declare both the mother and the woman insane at the same time. A "two for one" transaction.

    The woman is simply acknowledging her husband's rapier wit.
