** Lois does a variation of this herself in "Fox-y Lady", only she bumps her breast on the mailbox instead of spraining her knee.

** It was {{lampshade|Hanging}}d when Peter is singing "Surfin' Bird", over and over, and Stewie comments, "Oh, I just love repetition!" Later in the same episode, in what may have been a jab at how the fans perceive these jokes, Stewie slowly pulls out a revolver and [[AteHisGun puts its barrel in his mouth]] as Peter continues singing the song ''ad nauseum''.
** Subverted once when the Vaudeville Guys, who were just beginning to wear out their welcome, are shot to death by Stewie just as they are beginning their performance. They did return later, Vern as a ghost and Johnny playing his piano in Hell.

** Conway Twitty in "The Juice is Loose": they put the ENTIRE SONG in the episode! It is also one of the lowest rated episodes in the series. [[FridgeLogic Makes one wonder why this joke hasn't been used since]].
*** Done again with another song! When homeschooling the kids in "Foreign Affairs", and talking about "The gayest music video ever", the show proceeds to play ''the entirety'' of [[Music/TheRollingStones Mick Jagger]] and Music/DavidBowie's "Dancing in the Street".

** The P.S. in Stewie's letter to Brian when he's heading to England.
** The Phony Guy. Just like the raccoon gag in "To Love and Die and Dixie" - he only appears four or five times in one season 3 episode, "The Kiss Seen Around the World" - except it stopped being funny after his second appearance. You could say his being brought back just to be killed off in "Something Something Something Darkside" was some sort of KarmicDeath.
** In "Stew-roids" Stewie repeatedly steps in front of Brian as he tries to go down the stairs, making an "oop" noise. He does this 12 times before stopping.
** In the season 2 episode "If I'm Dyin, I'm Lyin" during the interrogation scene in [[ShowWithinAShow "Gumbel 2 Gumbel"]] when Bryant Gumbel continuously mumble "Mmm Hmm" at the arrested criminal for about 20 seconds. It ends when the criminal asks Greg, "What the hell is wrong with him?"
** The scene from "Quagmire's Dad" where Brian pukes for at least a solid 30 seconds.
** Speaking of puke, there was also the "Ipecac contest" with Peter, Chris, Stewie and Brian repeatedly puking for about a minute.

** A gag in "Ready, Willing, and Disabled" has Joe Swanson crying in the bar because he failed to capture a criminal that tried to steal donation money. He cries for 2-4 minutes as Peter, Quagmire, and Cleveland slowly and awkwardly leave the bar (with Peter then slowly coming back in through a window to get his beer). Creator/SethMacFarlane lampshades the gag in the DVD commentary by mentioning that the animators overseas hated drawing scenes that dragged out in a slow speed.

** "Ratings Guy" has a cutaway gag when Peter was doing public radio spending nearly 30 seconds eating biscuits from the word of his sponsor.
** "Peter Problems" has Peter trying to get a beached whale back into the ocean with a forklift, only for him to impale it and try to get the dead whale off. By the time he's finished, the whale is a [[{{Gorn}} horrific bloody mess with its innards exposed]]. The length of the scene makes what is already probably the most graphic moment in the show even harder to [[{{Pun}} stomach]].
** In "Long John Peter," Peter spends about 60 seconds getting rid of a dead bullfrog.
** In "Jesus, Mary and Joseph!" there is a skit involving the [[Literature/AChristmasCarol Ghost of Christmas Past visiting Scrooge]], only for Scrooge saying he has to use the bathroom first. We hear him urinating in it for about a whole minute, to the point that the Ghost of Christmas Present shows up and is surprised that the Past Ghost hasn't even started yet.
** Taken to an extreme in "Roasted Guy" where there's a cutaway gag about a full minute and a half in length, in which a wolf joins a pack and one of the members tells him to cluck instead of howl at the full moon and he embarrasses himself in the process, leading to the wolf's life spiraling down into transvestism and prostitution and him ultimately shooting the pack to death. The end reveals that the skit was a film Peter was directing and the wolf was Quagmire after Peter drugged him.

** In "Canceled", this trope is spelled out. Kyle is asked to activate the satellite dish in Cartman's rectum, and each time he approaches, Cartman farts and laughs. Everyone agrees it is no longer funny, and Cartman does it again, prompting the others to laugh and Chef to proclaim it funny once more.

** Fans of the show commonly refer to this trope as a "rake scene", after the scene in "Cape Feare" in which Sideshow Bob spends the best part of a minute [[RakeTake stepping on rakes]]. Given the origin of this scene, the probable circumstances that determine exactly how overly long an overly long gag could probably be described as "how much time needs filling?"

This happens eight times, and the first four are recognisably the same footage as the second four, except for Homer saying "This time," before the last one.

** In the episode "Crook and Ladder", Homer takes sleeping pills that may cause mood swings. The next gag is at least 30 seconds worth of Homer saying "Mood Swings!" in different tones.
** One of the later seasons has an episode where Ralph Wiggum tries to play "Duck Duck Goose" at a party, or rather "Duck Duck Duck Duck Duck Duck Duck Duck Duck Duck..." (etc.)

** "Porky Pig's Feat" has a memorable moment when the Manager of the Broken Arms Hotel, driven into a state of fury by Daffy's antics, attempts to break down the door to his and Porky's room. The rug gets pulled out from under him, and he goes tumbling down the stairs. The next 30 seconds are spent watching him fall down step after step, going "Ee! Ah! Oh! Ah!" until he crashes at the bottom. The second time around, he fakes it.
