* FaceDoodling: In a segment about practical jokes, Bill shared an incident in college where he was passed out drunk and his roommates wrote "I LOVE DICK" on his forehead. He received strange looks the next day and only found out why when his horrified mother saw the writing. Geno Bisconte followed up by asking "Was it weird that it was in your handwriting, Bill?".

* RepeatingAd: In Red Eye's early days, the infamous commercial Advertising/HeadOn was run ''very'' frequently. Lampshaded by Andy in his [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7QsosIdHbE&t=8m12s list of things] they had learned over the first 100 episodes of Red Eye, with one of them being "HeadOn should be applied directly to the forehead".

* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Both the cast and guests had moments of zoning out during the show, particularly on lengthy subjects. After Dr. Baden explained that embalming fluid was mostly formaldehyde, Greg *immediately* asked "what's in it?".



* BigStupidDooDooHead: One of Greg's signature insults, "Jerky Jerk Jerkface from Planet Jerkland".



**In reference to the various conspiracy theories about Jews being responsible for everything, Andy (who is Jewish) would occasionally read a book silently as Greg introduced him before Andy concluded "it was the Jews". These books ranged from ''Conspiracy Theories for Dummies'' to [Literature//HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince]. He would also peddle his conspiracy theory pamphlets, titled "THE JOOS".



** "Shut up, Bill" is one for both Greg and Andy. Mike Baker lampshaded this during the show Andy hosted, expressing his surprise that Andy 21 minutes before uttering that phrase.
* CensoredForComedy: After Keith Olbermann alleged Bill O'Reilly got his own named bleeped from a joke, Greg took responsibility and had some fun with the censors himself.
-->'''Greg:''' As for Olbermann, lets face it: the guy is a [[spoiler:great guy]]. I mean, so what if he likes to [[spoiler:help out]] troubled young women. Or the fact that he uses his job to shamelessly [[spoiler:help the underprivileged]], impressionable secretaries. And did you hear that he [[spoiler:spends his time helping kids with]] head injuries? I read somewhere he [[spoiler:relaxes quietly]] in a bathtub. Nude. He is the [[spoiler:LAST GUY]] you would see banging a drug-addicted stripper. And he [[spoiler:would never]] steal her coke, and do a line off her baby daughters head. What a [[spoiler:hero]].



* ClipShow: For several years, their New Year's Eve special would be one of these.



* ConspiracyKitchenSink: Greg claims that Obama's autobiography was ghostwritten by Bill Ayers in Kenya.



* HoistByHisOwnPetard: When tripped up by his own poor writing, Greg lamented that he made a trap only he could walk into and that he was like "a kung-fu master who beats himself up".

He also has a penchant for butchering names of movies, including [[Film/TheDuchess "The Duke-ss"]] and [[Film/BendItLikeBeckham "Bend Her Like Beckham"]].



* NotSoAboveItAll: Several of Fox's normally serious on-air individuals have turned into complete lunatics when appearing on Red Eye, most notably former CIA operative Mike Baker. As Greg once put it, "Red Eye is like the special place in the attic where smart people go to act retarded".



* OneOfUs: Andy Levy is an unabashed comic book and sci-fi geek, often appearing on the show with his [[Series/DoctorWho Sonic Screwdriver]].

* SplitPersonality: This is Mike Baker's excuse for two clips contrasting his behavior on different shows. A clip from Cavuto showed him very eloquently discussing oil speculation and OPEC, immediately followed by his statement on Red Eye of "when I smoke me some weed, the first thing I wanna eat is a hot wing sandwich".

**As part of the show's RunningGag of baseless, random hatred of Belgium, clips would often feature alleged technological innovations by the country, including a redneck driving a motorized recliner was the king of Belgium driving his new throne.

* NamesTheSame: In one 2012 segment, co-panelists included wrestler Mick Foley along with Chris Barron, the head of GOPROUD (an organization of LGBT Republicans). During the commentary about some story, Foley made a joke about the song lyrics he thought Barron wrote, prompting everyone to do a FlatWhat. Foley, perplexed asked, "Wait, are you not who I thought you were?" It turns out that he confused Chris Barron of GOPROUD with Chris Barron of the early 90's jam band the Spin Doctors, of "ComicBook/JimmyOlsen's Blues", "Two Princes", and Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" fame (the last song was the one Foley was referencing). This prompted a minutes-long exchange of laughter and Spin Doctors-based jokes, and everyone kept referencing the mix-up throughout the show. During the laughter, Foley paused and then asked "Being completely respectful and not joking at all here: so who ARE you?" prompting even more laughter, including from Barron himself. The whole thing ended up being one big CrowningMomentOfFunny, and everyone seemed to have fun with it.

* {{Muppet}}:
** Another "regular panelist" is Pinch, a puppet that serves as the show's "New York Times Correspondent." It is a copy of the NYT with cardboard eyes and a string attached, performed by Schulz.
** Some episodes have a smaller version of Pinch called Porch, made from a smaller newspaper.
** Both have been absent in many more recent episodes, much to Andy's delight. Bill's leaving pretty much [[PutOnABus put Pinch on a bus]], too.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Early episodes of the series were quite strange and felt completely unscripted, and the panelists themselves were rather odd as well. During an anniversary episode's flashback to a very early episode, Greg noted his "fat face," Andrew Breitbart's appearance, and Andy Levy's hairstyle and how he "looked like he belonged in an OingoBoingo tribute band" as well as Bill Hemmer referring to past-Andy as "Mrs. Andy Levy."
