Wow 45K for 2 lines of code. That beats my record of 2K for 10 lines ;)

    We got quoted $15K from a support contractor for what ended up one line of Perl: in-place edit preserving file modification times. I unfortunately made my hourly wage for 30 minutes. Though it was really more than fair since another hacker gave me the one-liner. :) So I was essentially paid for knowing who to ask.
