I believe this is from an old English tv show. It is simple humour and I like its subtlety. 

Vic Flange goes to  pour Evelyn Blunt a glass of wine.

Evelyn: "Not for me, thank you".

Vic: "No? Don't drink?"

Evelyn: "I tried it once and didn't like it."

Vic: "Oh. Have a smoke?:

Evelyn: "No. I tried it once and didn't like it."

Vic: "How strange."

Evelyn: "Not at all. My daughter is just the same."

Vic: "Only child?"

Evelyn: "She is."
