When Hardy visited Ramanujan in the hospital, he remarked that he had just been in a taxi having a license plate with a very uninteresting number, 1729.  Ramanujan replied without hesitation that the number was most interesting, being the smallest positive integer expressible as the sum of two cubes in two different ways.
