How can I learn to think on my feet and be quick with witty/snarky responses?

This is something that's been bothering me for a while. I can't figure out how people are able to come up with snap retorts, especially when saying something in their defense (e.g. when someone's trying to cut them down with words.) It takes me a while to absorb information and sometimes I'm stumped when giving a response. If you've experienced this, what has helped you?
