What are some tricks that classy people use to make others feel ashamed of themselves after they've treated someone badly?

I'm looking for some smooth, cool-headed maneuvers one could use to get someone to realize that they've just been a real asshat? I want to provoke shame, my thinking being that this is the best revenge. The basic pattern should be like this:
Clueless, rude person: (says or does mean, inappropriate thing)
Me: __ ? ___
Clueless, rude person: (blushes, goes silent)
Me: (smiles and walks away)
While subtlety won't always do it, the more subtle, the better.
(I'm asking because I'm dealing with a bully at work, not because I feel like going on superiority power trip and teaching everyone around me a lesson).
