* When a sufficiently well-known and/or prolific actor is sitting in front of a computer screen and typing away, the guys will provide an InternalMonologue where the guy is writing about how underestimated his career has been. This has happened twice to Joe Pantoliano alone, in ''{{Film/Daredevil}}'' and ''Film/TheMatrix''

** In more recent riffs this is often accompanied by Mike's Nick Nolte impression, with which he delivers a brief explanation as to why he is in whichever scene the riffers are mocking (e.g., finding himself in [[TheWizardOfOz Oz]] after being flung there by a tornado made of his own feces, or appearing in a town overrun with zombies in order to siphon a turned over truck full of benzine). This was also a running gag within ''The Curse of Bigfoot'' riff, which featured three or four Nolte monologues.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/TheRoom'' has several running gags in it. Many involve side-plots that get brought up and dropped within the same scene, as well as Lisa's beauty [[HollywoodHomely not quite matching up]] to the film's hype. They also manage to at least double the amount of [[MemeticMutation OH HAI]]s heard in the movie.
