* ''Film/IronMan1'' has the running gag of one of Tony's inept helper bot arm... things... having a propensity to hose him down with a fire extinguisher at a drop of a hat. First time is when his jet boots fail (in that they were set too high and flung him face first into the ceiling). Second time was him threatening the bot ''not'' to do it. Third time was at the end of his Mk 2 flight; First, Tony breaks the ceiling and floor of his house, then smashes a grand piano, then one of his expensive cars... then gets hosed off by the extinguisher bot again. Tony can only lie his helmeted head down in tired frustration.
** Speaking of the car scene, Iron Man unintentionally wrecking other people's cars occurs a couple of times per movie.
** Also, there's Agent Coulson insisting on stating the full acronym for S.H.I.E.L.D. ("Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement Logistics Division") several times when introducing himself to others.

** ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'' has a rather literal example: On your left!
** ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'' has Rocket Racoon being called something other than a raccoon, and often demeaning, such as "Trash Panda", "Triangle-faced monkey", "Puppy", etc.

* ''The Long Goodbye'', which features an anachronistic '50s private eye in the '70s has the protagonist not only be the only character that smoked, but as a RunningGag has him light a cigarette in every single scene. It also has the title tune shoehorned in many different times (on a car radio, at a Mexican funeral...).

* The W. C. Fields short ''The Fatal Glass of Beer'' contains one of the most famous running gags in movie history. Whenever Fields character goes out into the raging blizzard or comes back in, he pauses in the door to declare "This aint' a fit night out ... for man nor beast" and then gets a handfull of snow thrown in his face.

** So is the series of literal responses to "What is it?" [[labelnote:Answer]]It's a response that describes the place where the situation is taking place, rather than the situation itself which the questioner wants to know more about, but that's not important right now.[[/labelnote]]

** C-3PO is constantly pissing off other characters by showing off his intelligence in situations where it doesn't actually help, leading to him being cut off mid-sentence [[OncePerEpisode at least once in every movie]] in the Original Trilogy. In ''Film/ANewHope'', he gushes about his language and programming skills to Uncle Owen until he finally buys him just to shut him up. In ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', he's always calculating the characters' probability of surviving dangerous situations, culminating in Leia loudly shutting him up while the ''Millennium Falcon'' engages the ''Avenger''. And in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', EV-9D9 cuts him off in Jabba's palace before he can even finish saying his signature line "I am fluent in over six million forms of communication!"
