I think the best thing to do is to start stacking things after he says "Alright then."

I've had one who literally talked my ear off and as if he had decided right after his second question to call it quits, he pulled out a preset questionnaire. He didn't write a damn thing down. I wish I did something but I hate making scenes.

Get bent Home Depot.

The only thing I can say is those interviews sound like they expect you to ask background questions of the company and expect you to be all psyched about being a team player.

^^^This reminds me....

Bring a "Buzzword Bingo" card to the interview to pass the time. Try to get the interviewer to say words like "resources" "kanban" or even "SYNERGY". You get two points if they use a compound buzzword like "win-win situation" and three points if the buzzword is adjectivized, like "synergistic". Each time you are successful say something like "BOOYAH!" or "AWRIGHT!" so they are completely confused.

It won't guarantee you anything more than the other side of the door you walked in, but it can be loads of fun.

EDIT - if at any point the interviewer says the word "paradigm" you WIN, and should do a little dance.
The future is fun,
The future is fair.
You may already have won!
You may already be there.
