* OrphanedPunchline / NoodleIncident: Scenes are often opened at the end of what have clearly been long true-from-life accounts, just in time for the punchline. Breedlove is a [[RunningGag walking example]]; he is introduced finishing a story he's telling to a crowd, at the conclusion of which a fellow actor returns "with a fish," which he throws at a woman in the audience. Later a scene cuts to him saying, "I thought UsefulNotes/ThePope was a pretty good sport about it."
