* PanAndScan: Spoofed in one skit where the movie ''Deep in My Heart'' is rendered in fullscreen as ''Deep in My Ear''; and then we repeatedly hear suggestive dialogue before the scene pans over to reveal an innocent context.

* HotGuyUglyWife: Usually the "ordinary guy, exceptionally ugly wife" variety. The guys usually are Hill or McGee, the wives are often played by men too. In at least one sketch [[GoldDigger he married her for her parents' money]]. Another sketch had him say his wife isn't much to look at "but you can't help who you fall in love with".

* GivingThemTheStrip: An [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUOe_hLg7Bo ending chase scene]] has Benny as an escaped prison inmate evading two bobbies by striping of the jacket and pants of his InstitutionalApparel. Finding new clothes to replace it proves problematic, however.

** In another sketch, he plays a messenger in the middle ages. After putting on women's clothing he flirts with several guards to distract them and knock them out. It doesn't work on the final guard. He has an epiphany and flirts with him as a male instead. It works.

* AsianSpeekeeEngrish: Many skits feature Benny dressed up as a Chinese or Japanese man (or woman), and speaking with a stereotypical "Engrish" accent. Much of the humour builds on the straight man misunderstanding Benny's character because of this, and it also gives the opportunity for many {{DoubleEntendre}}s. The racism implicit in these sketches (although the Asian characters are never depicted as inferior to the English, both their looks and patterns of speech are ridiculed) is one reason the show is frowned upon today.
