* NiceJobBreakingItHero: It seems like local gas station owner Ralphie closed his station down because the Lodge members kept stealing gas from him. Harold suggests that the Lodge members confess their thefts to Ralphie, and offer to pay him back to open up his shop again. We then learn that Ralphie didn't actually close his station down, he just added a new shopping area which made his pumps hard to find. So now the Lodge members have to pay for everything they've stolen without needing to. When the Lodge meeting starts, Red tells Harold that "the men are waiting for you." [[OhCrap Harold reacts appropriately.]]

The lodge members are often famous Canadian actors such as Graham Greene (Edgar), Gordon Pinsent (Hap), Colin Mochrie (in a small role as hotdog expert Frank Kepke) and [[Series/DueSouth Paul Gross]].

* TheComicallySerious: The audience members who played the prospective new members in the "New Member Night" segments always acted this way, and made things even funnier by raising their eyebrows or frowning as the cast member talks about them.

** Special mention also goes to Mike for his attempt to rob a bank through the drive-through window. First, he sent in his hold-up note...''and then he sent his gun in after it''.
-->'''Red''': Crime doesn't pay, does it, Mike?
'''Mike''': Not when I do it.

* ChainsawGood: Subverted in that Red never used chainsaws as weapons, but in handyman projects. One notable example involved his duct taping a chainsaw to a bicycle to create a moped. Also subverted by Bill, who occasionally tried to use chainsaws for what they were designed for, but his LethalKlutz tendencies led to {{Epic Fail}}s anyway.

* OldNewBorrowedAndBlue: The rhyme is referenced in the Handyman's Corner segment of "Bernice's Birthday", where Red attempts to repaint the Possum Van by filling up its tires with paint and air, then connecting them to a soda gun:
-->'''Red:''' So, out of my four tires, let's see... one is old, one is new, one is borrowed, so this one I'll make blue!

* GoofyPrintUnderwear: In the Handyman Corner segment of "Maxi Golf", Red (tries to) use an electric lathe to create new legs for a coffee table. At one point, Red leans over too close to the running lathe to pick up his tools, which causes his pants to catch into it and reveal Red's heart print underwear:
-->'''Red:''' ...yeah, that was the other thing I forgot to mention: don't wear loose clothing!

** In yet another episode, Red and the others thought they were brewing their own alcoholic beverage (it was either sparkling wine or light beer, Red says) in a bathtub, although Red was curious as to why this beverage had olives. Harold tells him that's actually his project for the school science fair: he is pickling polliwogs, which is what Red had mistaken for the aforementioned olives. Red suddenly keels over and feels sick.

* ShowTheFolksAtHome: At the start of every Possum Lodge Word Game, Harold shows the word of the day and says it ''a la'' ''Series/{{Password}}''. The lodge member who has to guess the word plugs their ears to avoid spoiling the game.

** "Welcome to Harold's Handicrafts, where crafty hands make handy crafts!" used by Harold to start the "Harold's Handicrafts" segment that featured in several Season 5 episodes.



* SketchComedy: Recurring segments included ''Handyman Corner'', ''Adventures With Bill'', ''The Experts'', ''Talking Animals'', ''North of 40'' (Red's speeches to other middle-aged men), ''Buddy System'' (when Red and another lodge member give husbands advice on how to get out of a jam with their wives), ''The Possum Lodge Word Game'' (when Red tries to get a lodge member to say a certain word to win a strange prize), ''The Winter Of Our Discount Tent'' (Red reading poetry), ''Possum 911'', boating tips with Glenn Brackston, and one-on-one interviews with everyone from Dougie Franklin to Jimmy [=McVeigh=] to Jack Davidson. Some of these segments were eventually dropped from the show when the writers couldn't come up with anything else they felt was really worth shooting, although ''Buddy System'' eventually reappeared later in the show's run.
