* ''New Member Night'': Debuted during season 8. Red invites lodge members to introduce prospective new members, all of whom have some special quirk that the introducing member finds appealing, and then Red has the lodge members vote whether to let him. The introducing member usually convinces everyone to vote yes by giving them an incentive for doing so.
** In a commentary by Steve Smith on a Red Green DVD, the prospective new members are actually played by someone from the studio audience that the actors on the show would randomly pick to stand up there in front of everyone and make jokes about.

Later cast members like Peter Wildman and Bob Bainborough would also contribute to dozens of episodes in their own right.
