I came across the script of Alphaville the other day. Saw it in 1965, I guess, and loved this sight gag in such an apparently serious Godard film

LEMMY has arrived at his hotel and crosses the dining-room. As he is walking through a small parade full of automatic machines, he places a coin in a machine on which is written, 'Place Coin Here'. Out shoots a card on which is written, 'Thank you'. He flings it into the air defeated by its inane logic. He reaches the lift.
