** 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.

* ''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.
-->'''Mike:''' Is there ''anyone'' he's not surprised to see!?

** And more recently, Golden Corral [[note]] Dialogue lines about food or eating, or any pieces of junk are quite often referred to as "Golden Corral's new slogan." As with other restaurant gags on this page, it's pretty much always negative in nature. [[/note]]
-->'''[[Film/TheForceAwakens Rey (about the Millennium Falcon)]]''': The garbage will do!
-->'''Kevin''': "The garbage will do", Golden Corral's new slogan.

** For a bit of running-gag-ception, this is ''only'' a riff used by Kevin and Mike, who riffed ''X-Men'' (this was before Bill and Kevin officially joined the site). When Kevin tries to use it, they yell at him.
