* ''WhoseLineIsItAnyway'': The cast (usually Colin) will take a hilarious moment from early in the episode and use it in everything from then on out. Usually this works out in their favor, as repeating it over and over tends to genuinely be funny (see: MEOW!). Subverted in one episode: during the infamous "TAPIOOOOCA!" fiasco during a game of ''Greatest Hits'' that left Ryan in stitches, Colin later tried to repeat the magic to try to crack Ryan up again, but Ryan signals that he doesn't find it that funny anymore and they continue without missing a beat.

* In ''Series/GetSmart'', Max would often use a joke that went like this:
-->'''Smart:''' (Insert an impressive sounding, but very absurd claim.)
-->'''Listener:''' I find that hard to believe.
-->'''Smart:''' Would you believe (insert a less impressive, but still absurd claim)?
-->'''Listener:''' No.
-->'''Smart:''' How about (insert a claim that sounds pathetic)?

* Every time InspectorGadget receives his next assignment on a self-destructive piece of paper, he reads it, then crumbles the paper and tosses it into whatever compartment his chief is hiding in this time, where it explodes right in the chief's face. There was one time when the chief was hiding in a trash can and InspectorGadget [[SubvertedTrope just tossed it on the ground]]. [[DoubleSubverted So someone else picked it up and threw it in the trash can]]. Cue explosion.
* BikerMiceFromMars destroying Limburger's tower in the end of every episode.

Like a conventional RunningGag, the success of this methodology depends on whether the joke was funny in the first place. Unlike the RunningGag, however, the joke must be able to stand on its own in each use ''in addition'' to after multiple other uses. [[TropesAreNotBad This isn't a bad thing]], if the author can keep the joke from going into OverUsedRunningGag range or getting too tedious.
