It's a quote I use in a variety of situations (with appropriate modification).
"The most expensive coffee machine is cheaper than the cheapest divorce."
My original quote was:
"The most expensive bicycle is 1/10th the price of the cheapest open heart surgery."
In the interest of full disclosure, I have an espresso machine at home and one at work (sticks out like a sore thumb on an Air Force base). When I fly we keep it pretty basic, I use finely ground coffee and boiling water in a cup, let it steep for a few minutes and pour it through one of those little cone filter holders designed to go over a cup. When my grandparents were still alive, Grandma always used a two-stage stovetop perculator (made from pyrex), but that was to "new-fangled" for Grandpa who used an enamel pot, a handful of coffee and a couple crushed egg shells. Smelled like hell, but wasn't as bad as most restraunt coffee.
