FWIW. This from STUMPERS (2002):
The quotation "Just  because you're paranoid doesn't mean people aren't out
to get you" (or  variants thereof) is sometimes attributed to Joseph Heller
in Catch-22 or to Woody Allen in Take  the Money and Run.  Is anyone
willing to look through Catch-22 or otherwise offer  information on the
origin of this saying?
