Series / Studio C
From left to right: James, Whitney, Adam, Mallory, Jeremy, Jason, Matt, Stacey, Natalie, Stephen. (Not pictured: Aaron, Dalton and Tori, who joined the cast in early 2017.)
Studio C is a sketch comedy show produced by BYUtv created by Jared Shores and Matt Meese. One of the major differences from other contemporary comedy shows is that the comedy is intended to be family-safe, focusing on wordplay and absurdist situational comedy with little to no fanservice or swearing. The cast members are all current or former members of the Divine Comedy troupe which is an on-campus sketch comedy show by BYU students. The title refers to the actual studio where the show is filmed.

The show has 13 regular cast members: Adam Berg, Whitney Call, Mallory Everton, Aaron Fielding, Jason Gray, Stacey Harkey, Dalton Johnson, Natalie Madsen, Stephen Meek, Matt Meese, James Perry, Tori Pence and Jeremy Warner.

The show began in 2012 and began its 5th season in 2014. It airs on BYUtv, a television station operated by Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, but it reaches a much wider audience on YouTube.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Ann the librarian.
  • Achievements in Ignorance: Matt has no idea how to play poker and yet he makes it to the final four in a huge tournament in "Poker Face." If he wasn't using Uno cards, he might have gotten lucky enough to win too.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: "Dana's Dead" and "Robbing Roger"
  • Adorkable: Lobster Bisque
  • All Just a Dream: Matt and Whitney try to convince Jason that he's dreaming by pulling off impossible feats that baffle even themselves. Actually, Whitney is the one who's dreaming.
  • Amusing Injuries: The "Scott Sterling" penalty shootout
    • And the sequel, the Scott Sterling volleyball match!
  • Artistic License: "Atari's Revenge on Nintendo" plays fast and loose with video game history. Nintendo is portrayed as an American "little startup company" in the 80's, when in reality, it is a Japanese company that has been in operation since 1889. Also, the sketch ignores the existence of the Mario and Luigi characters prior to Super Mario Bros. note 
  • Awesome McCoolname: In the "Alien Invasion" sketch, one star got renamed "Chuck NorrisSaurus Rex". And even though the planet is made of gold and diamonds, and populated by fluffy bunnies, nobody dares bother it. Contrasted with the Atrocious Alias given to another star, "Wounded Lover".
  • Awkward Kiss: "Harry Potter Accidentally Kisses Professor McGonagall" has Harry setting up an Under the Mistletoe kiss, with his intended target being Cho, but getting Dolores Umbridge instead. After an awkward peck on her cheek, he resets for Cho, but gets Professor McGonagall. He offers his cheek, but McGonagall goes in for the full-on lip-lock. The next one to come under the mistletoe is a dementor.
  • Bait-and-Switch: In "I'm Adopted?", Stacey thinks his parents Matt and Mallory adopted him. Turns out he was Switched at Birth and the parents were too stupid to notice... and his biological parents are Asian.
  • Babysitter from Hell: If Julie Andrews wasn't available for Mary Poppins or The Sound of Music, we might have had Ms. Gerdistein.
  • Badass Mustache: Jeremy's 'stache is practically its own character.
  • Bad "Bad Acting": Matt in Poker Face 2: All In.
  • Bald of Evil: All of the suspects in "Supervillains"— Discussed, Voldemort claims the insecurity makes you evil. Averted with Gandhi.
  • Bat Deduction: Spoiler Alert (Yes, that was the title of a sketch.)
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: Naturally takes this trope to extremes when a man and woman start an argument who is more is more organic, only to end up making out.
  • Big Brother Is Watching: In How to Be a Famous Reality Star, which presents the obvious surveillance as if it is a reality show.
  • Black Comedy: Sometimes steers into this.
  • Blessed with Suck: Rotting Flesh, the superhero with leprosy
  • Bratty Half-Pint: "Episode 7 Releases Footage of Jedi Class" shows the logical conclusion of having a bunch of kindergarten age kids trying to master the Force.
  • Brawn Hilda: Birgitte Gerdestien, who was rejected for the roles of Mary Poppins and Sister Maria.
  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs: In "Most Realistic Video Game of All Time", Matt encounters a baby, a navy SEAL, and a baby seal.
    Mallory: Matt, you can't just eat bacon for every meal. That's not how cleanses work!
    Matt: Of course that's how cleanses work: You pick one thing and eat only that thing. Juice, bacon, bacon juice...
    Mallory: That's grease.
    Matt: I've heard it both ways.
  • Brief Accent Imitation: Usually Jason.
  • But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Evil Memory Lapse
  • The Butler Did It: Jason tries (and fails) to invoke this trope in "Blame it on the Butler"
  • Butt-Monkey: Adam in the two tongue twister skits, "Dana's Dead" and "Robbing Roger". In one Jason spits water in his face repeatedly, in the other Jason throws goop and feathers in his face repeatedly.
    • In "Kid's School Photo Banned" he gets sent through the ringer again, this time because he didn't look awful in his school photo
    • Mixed with Humiliation Conga, Jeremy in Overdue Military Letter. Matt and Jason get great gifts, Jeremey...
  • Call-Back: "College Research Project: The Four Page Zone" references "The Absent-Minded Robber":
    Jason: Next semester we can study the thing that happens when you walk into a room and can't remember why you're there.
    Whitney: Oh yeah, my brother had that! He's in jail now.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Peter Pan's shadow.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Many of the characters
    • Matt in "Poker Face"
    • John Gibson in "The Treatment"
    • S in "Replacement Q"

  • Cheese-Eating Surrender Monkeys: Invoked in Foreign Exchange and The Ottoman Empire.

  • Colossus Climb: The Shoulder Angel when he needed to help Shawn Bradley.

    • Matt is clearly on the verge of laughter in "Awkward Double Date with Puritan Roommate."
    • Matt is visibly smirking and desperately trying to keep it together in "A Friend's Dying Secrets," where he is actually playing a corpse. Jason, who can usually keep it together, lost it as well. Some quick improvisation tried to cover it up.
    • "Cheer Up Mix Up" had both Matt and Adam struggling to keep it in. To be fair, Adam was sporting a "LOSER" forehead tattoo at the time.
    • Matt has become so well-known for breaking character that Studio C has created a playlist of sketches in which he does it.
    • Jeremy finally breaks character in "Atari's Revenge on Nintendo".
  • Creepy Child: Spencer, the baby who is a college Freshmen.
    Spencer: Hello, Matthew.
  • Comically Missing the Point: In the skit, seriously? That's romance?
    Queen Elizabeth: Oh, look, I made BuzzFeed! "The Top Ten Most Irrelevant Old People."
    David Cameron: Oh, I'm sorry.
    Queen Elizabeth: I MADE BUZZFEED!
  • Death Glare: Mallory and Whitney are both quite good at pulling one out when appropriate.
  • A Degree in Useless: Subverted in "Practical Philosopher"
  • Did I Just Say That Out Loud?: Matt in "Dungeons and Dragons".
    Matt: Long have I desired to be kissed by a woman... says my character.
  • Discriminate and Switch: Stacey realizes that Matt obviously couldn't have been his long lost son in "Clue Murder Mystery Scandal" because they have different colored...eyes.
    Jason: You of all people should understand. There are different ways to describe people
    Stacey: What do you mean by me of all people?
    Jason: Because you're short.
    Stacey: Oh, touche.

  • Even Evil Has Standards: In the "Lady Shadow" sketch, the whole reason why no one fights Lady Shadow...because she's pregnant.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: "Trip to the ER"
  • Fat Suit: Matt has worn a fat suit for several sketches, including "The Bacon Cleanse" and the ones featuring the Shoulder Devil character.
  • Flynning: According to "Fencing: Slow-Mo Replay," modern fencing matches are actually like this, but they happen so fast that you need to watch the replay to see them.
  • The "Fun" in "Funeral": "Dead Wedding"
  • Funny Background Event: "Presidential Shoulder Angel"
  • Gambit Pileup: In the "Death Bed Repentance" skit, the Livingstone family (a mafia family) and Jose Delgado (the mafia boss who should be dead, and who disguised as a delivery man who Mallory paid to deliver her candy tombstone) pull this off to one another, despite their confession (of not having much time to live) becoming more repetitive and unrealistic as the sketch goes on
    • "D&D Revenge", both sides (the guys and Carly) did a great deal of preparation when they meet again
  • Gender-Blender Name: Stacey is a guy. Surprisingly, this trope remains unexploited.
  • Girlfriend in Canada: Adam in D&D Revenge
  • Girls With Mustaches: The Marvel's Avengers parody song featured Mallory dressed as Thor, complete with mustache and beard.
  • Grammar Nazi: Captain Literally is a superhero variant, but he is not the only one....
  • Good Angel, Bad Angel: Both have showed up in the Shoulder Angel sketches, although only once in the same skit.
    • And it seems that Shoulder Angels sometimes need an angel of their own too.
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: There's the good cop, the bad cop, and the ugly cop. And the hot cop.
  • Hypocritical Humor
  • If You're So Evil, Eat This Kitten: "Ditching Dobby" and "Bourne Dobby" revolve around having to get rid of Dobby.
  • I Have Many Names: The entire point of the "Zombies Attack" skit, referring to the zombies. And Whitney's reactions to some of these names are just hysterical.
    Adam: Nah, I just call 'em-
    Whitney: ZOMBIES, thank you!
    Adam: Actually, I just call 'em Amy. After my Ex-Wife.
    • At the very end when they test their different names on a zombie, Whitney calls it a zombie, which it didn't respond to. Instead, it responded to Adam calling it "Amy." Coincidentally, it actually was Amy. Huh. What're the odds?
  • Inherently Funny Word: Bisque!
  • It's a Wonderful Plot: Steven finds out that if he had never been born, Studio C would never have been started, and all of the other cast members' lives would have been significantly better than they currently are.
  • Lame Pun Reaction: Whenever someone delivers an awful app-based pun in "Apps of the Wild West," Steven can be seen in the background booing each one.
  • Large Ham: Well, everybody to an extent, but Matt, Jason, and Mallory take the cake.
    • Whitney and Stacey are no slouches either.
  • Large Ham Announcer: Just a few of the many examples from the Scott Sterling penalty shootout:
    "SCOTT STERLING! The Man, The Myth, THE LEGEND!!"
    "Look at him beg for mercy, when it's mercy that should be begging for him!!"
    "He has to look death in the eye and say 'Take your best shot', to which death replies by punching him in the face over, and over, and over again!"
    • The volleyball based sequel has this gem:
    "When Armageddon comes, I want to be in a bunker made of that man's face!"
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In "Bad Karma".
  • Last Words: "Most Awkward Death Scene of All Time" has Stephen deliver several of these without actually dying.
  • Least Rhymable Word: The Running Gag for Most Epic Rap Battle Ever
  • Lights Off, Somebody Dies: Parodied in one sketch. Jason finds out that the lights go off when lightning strikes nearby. He tries killing party guests when he hears thunder, but the others always see him do it.
  • Literal Genie: Variation with Captain Literally: you don't wish for something, you merely make a remark using "literally" and Captain Literally makes it true.
  • Literal-Minded: See above on Captain Literally
    • Also in "Thesis Defense"
  • Long List: Matt lists all the Disney characters whose parents are gone in "Disney Plans Hero's Death"
  • The Mafia: "Message from Above"
  • Man of a Thousand Faces: Jason takes on several of these including Darth Sidious, the Joker, Bane, Snape, Dobby, Gollum, Gandalf and The Grinch.
    • Matt has a few faces of his own, most frequently Voldemort and Mr. Ecklestone.
  • The Men in Black: The Shoulder Angel has a bit of trouble getting to the President...
  • Mexican Standoff: "Get Up and Walk Out of Here" has the entire cast in a ring, each pointing a gun at the next.
  • Mickey Mousing: Lazy Man vs. Soda is done in this style, in live action.
  • The Millstone: Played for laughs in Stranded on a Deserted Island with Mark Robernote . All of his inventions would be very genius in most other contexts, but in this case simply sabotage their efforts to survive and/or escape the island.
  • The Missionary: Not explicitly stated, but it's pretty obvious that they're supposed to be LDS missionaries in "Message from Above"
  • Mr. Seahorse: "The Hard Life of a Male Seahorse"
  • Mix and Match: Many of the sketches can be described as such.
    • "Bollyside" is ''West Side Story type dancing meeting Bollywood dancing.
    • "Candy Land Character Conference" is Candy Land meeting the childhood obesity problem in an attempt to make a Dolled-Up Installment.
    • "Sidious Says So" is Darth Sidious as a roommate.
    • "Going Green" is about what the Amish can do to reduce their carbon footprint.
    • "State of Mind" takes Everything Is Big in Texas and makes it about Rhode Island.
    • "The Truth About Running" turns running into a dangerous activity like drugs and alcoholism.
  • Mona Lisa Smile: It turns out that Lisa was just really bad at posing, so the famous smile was the best daVinci could get out of her.
  • Mood Whiplash: The "Accountant Tax Party" sketch shows an incredibly boring party at a tax prep firm to celebrate the end of tax season. Then they clear the room for their fight club.
  • Murphy's Bullet: In “Shooting Booth,” a ditzy girl manages to hit Matt in the same spot on his hand three times with a BB gun. Subverted, as it is strongly implied that she did it on purpose to get back at Matt for scamming her son.
    • Not a bullet, but the basic principle is applied with Scott Sterling. No matter what he does, the soccer ball will hit him in the face.
  • Nations as People: in "International Relations"
    • It continues in "National Relations: Republicans vs. Democrats," where the Democrat and Republican parties are America's parents.
  • No Party Like a Donner Party: In "Lost Plane Crash," Matt immediately suggests cannibalism upon the pilot's "demise."
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Ann Withers. And commonly, Jason.
    • Jason has admitted on his vlog that he regularly invades Matt's personal space in an attempt to get him to break character.
  • No Social Skills: Matt in the "Awkward Avoidance Viking" shorts.
    • Also everyone featured in "The Center for People that YouTube Made Infamous"
    • And the "Flirting Academy" skits

  • Not What It Looks Like: Used as a Running Gag on New CW Series: The Valley
  • Obviously Evil: In “Evil Asides.”
  • Obvious Pregnancy: Lady Shadow and the women from "Mother Power"
  • The Oner: Exploring Backstage.
  • One Dialogue, Two Conversations: "Message from Above"
  • Only Sane Man: In "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," everyone is trying to convince Matt that George Washington was the 26th President.
    • Also, Matt is the only one who recognizes slang in a Spelling Bee as being ridiculous in "Spelling Bee"
    • Whitney in I Call Shotgun.
    • Whitney, again, in "Zombies Attack."
    Mallory: "We figured we'd try our luck in here with the livin'... instead of out there... with the Orcs.
    Whitney: ORCS! Sure, let's just cross genres willy-nilly, shall we?!
    • In "Lost Plane Crash," Jeremy seems to be the only one who can see that their plane has gone down within spitting distance of civilization; everyone else is convinced they're stranded in the middle of nowhere.
    • In "Trip to the ER", Matt's arm has been cut off. He's apparently the only one who thinks that getting medical attention is a high priority. Mallory (who is driving them to the ER) waits for ducks crossing the road, and Jason suggests stopping for fast food.
    • Matt is the only one who knows what insulin is in "Diabetes Intervention." Not even the 911 operator knows.
    • Their spoof of The Great British Bake Off has Jason (as Paul) taking a rare turn as the only sane man, objecting with seething rage as contestants bring him increasingly-preposterous dishes. Mary, however, is delighted with them.
    • The Riddlernote , of all people, in "I'm Batman".
  • Overly Long Gag: Some of the sketches can come off as this, such as "A Star Trek Cliff Hanger", and "Death Bed Repentance"
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Jeremy is not playing a doctor in "Death bed repentance", he's also not a taco vendor
  • Potty Emergency: The Holding Back sketch.
  • Power Walk: While everyone is trying to do this in "Michael Bay's Slow Motion Epic Fail," James keeps messing it up with a Silly Walk
  • Properly Paranoid: In "Thesis Defense", a man takes defending his thesis too far, dressing in armor and putting himself between the committee and his paper. He winds up fighting a duel with the last remaining committee member. And then the guy who lived poisons him, showing that his fear for his thesis was genuine.
  • Rouge Angles of Satin: In "A Creepy Ghost Writer", Whitney is initially terrified when a spirit begins writing messages in her fogged-over bathroom mirror... but then starts correcting its spelling and grammar.
  • The Scrooge: Hating Christmas is seen as a dealbreaker. Interestingly, loving Christmas is also a dealbreaker.
  • Serial Escalation: "Two Guys On A Scooter". Two guys go to the grocery store on their scooter and end up giving a ride to their friend, his grandpa, a guy escaping an exploding country club, a guy and a girl with a tandem bike, a mannequin (for no apparent reason), a hitchhiker, a homeless guy with his dog, and a police officer. All at once.
    "Four guys on a scooter! With Grandpa!!"
    "Five guys on a scooter! WITH EXPLOSIONS!!!"
    "Seven guys on a scooter! One of them's a girl!"
    "Ten guys on a scooter! Homeless dog! That's my favorite!"
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Usually Matt
    • Though in "Presidential Fail" everyone but Matt has this.
  • Ship Tease: The fans ship Matt and Mallory hard. Studio C directly acknowledged Mattory with a promotional video titled "Matt + Mallory = Mattory". They also created a playlist of Mattory moments.
    • The season 7 opener "Jeremy Isn't Real" mentioned the Mattory phenomenon by name, but turned it on its head by revealing that the role of Mallory has been played by Jason this whole time.
    • The "Harry Potter and the Mirror of Erised" sketch has single-handedly doubled the amount of Mattory smooching on the Studio C channel. In the comments, Matt Meese revealed that they had to reshoot a lot of it because they forgot Harry's glasses. The fans, of course, believe that was just a convenient excuse for him to kiss Mallory more.
  • Shout-Out
  • Sniff Sniff Nom: In "Couchville", Matt is digging around under his couch cushions and gets his fingers coated in an unknown pinkish substance. He reacts with disgust after taking a sniff and a tentative lick, but finding nowhere to wipe off his hand, he sticks his fingers in his mouth and slurps it.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: In "Clue Murder Mystery Scandal":
    Matt: (sinister chuckle) Very good, inspector. Very good, indeed. So you've uncovered the fact that I've been embezzling millions of pounds from my business partner, Lord Branston.
    Lord Branston: What what? How could you do this to me?
    Matt: The poor fool had no idea until this night. I must confess that though I've been discovered, it brings me no small amount of joy that he now knows that it was me all along. (laugh)
    Policeman: Um, I didn't know any of that.
    Matt: You didn't?
    Policeman: No, I wasn't going to say that at all.
    Matt: Ah, well... dang it.
  • Spammer: Variations discussed in the "Facebook Friends Song."
  • Speaking Simlish: A rare live action version of this trope in "Google Translator"
  • Spit Take: Adam gets nearly a dozen of these in his face in "Dana's Dead." And it is awesome.
  • Stage Magician: There's not even a stage: it's all just done over the phone in "Phone Magician." Stephen is less than impressed.
  • Stay in the Kitchen
    Jason: Are you ladies done being girls, or are you gonna continue playin' dress-up in your (With awkward emphasis) MMMMMINI-Skirts?!
    Whitney: WHY?! Did that sentence. HAPPEN?!
    Jason: I'm sorry, I don't understand every little thing there is to know about baking, okay? It's so stinkin' complicated!
    Mallory: This is why men are supposed to stay in the garage.
    Jason: Oh, that is it! I am sleeping on the couch tonight!
  • Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: Any sketch with Jason as Emperor Palpatine will inevitably involve this.
    • In one episode, Palpatine, desperate to convert someone to the dark side, asks Matt to strike him down with a milk jug.
  • Switched at Birth: In "I'm Adopted?", Stacey finds out this happened to him. He thought he was adopted, given that his parents are played by Matt and Mallory. His real parents turn out to be... Asian?
  • Take That!: Not fans of Twilight.
    • The Man on a ledge sketch, where the reason everyone's acting as if the man played by Matt is about to jump off a building isn't because he's sitting on a ledge, but because he's about to eat an Arby's melt.
    • "My Dad Could Beat Up Your Dad" has a jab at Comcast. In response to the playground threat that "my dad could beat up your dad," Matt starts actually making the arrangements for his terrifying-sounding father to fight James and Stacey's dads:
      James: My dad works at Comcast.
      Matt: I see. Then my father will REALLY enjoy this.
    • Céline Dion is regarded as a huge attention *** of a diva who literally can't control her urge to hog the spotlight.
  • Token Minority: Stacey (the black guy) and Jeremy (the Ambiguously Brown guy). The group takes advantage of their skin colors as much as possible. Jeremy has played characters that were Hispanic, Native American, and Indian. Stacey has played every black character in a spoof, even if they are female, such as Calpurnia or Rue.
    • They're not afraid to point out a cast member's status as a minority, either. The sketch "She Loves You, Bro!" has this gem:
      Stephen: Dude, Adam, chocolate represents the highest form of attraction.
      Stacey: Highest, mm-hmm.
      Stephen: I mean, why do you think girls love Valentine's Day...
      Stacey: Mm-hmm.
      Stephen: ...Nutella...
      Stacey: Oh, yeah.
      Stephen: (points to Stacey) ...and this guy?
      Stacey: Oh, they love me.
    • In "I'm Adopted?", Matt and Mallory play Stacey's parents. When they sit down to tell him about his true parentage, he thinks he already knows what they're going to say. Turns out he wasn't adopted, but was Switched at Birth and the parents were too stupid to notice. Oh, and his real parents are... Asian?
  • Top Ten List: Each member of the cast (excluding Aaron, Dalton and Tori, who joined the cast later) has a top 10 list of their favorite sketches: Adam, James, Jason, Jeremy, Mallory, Matt, Natalie, Stacey, Stephen, Whitney.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Everyone in the "The Smiths" sketch, which tells the tale of a man who loses the family farm to his probably adopted evil brother Barnabie by willingly signing away the deed to it for no clear reason. Why does Barnabie want the farm? to grow prescription meds, of course! Barnabie then loses the farm when he throws the deed at Mr.Smith as part of his Evil Gloating. Sketch also includes this:
    [After having failed to poison everyone due to the poison melting the cups]
    Barnabie: Time for Plan B
    Mr. Smith: What did you say?!
    Barnabie: I said....Time for plan C
    Mr. Smith: [Reassured] Oh, okay.
  • Trailers Always Spoil: The whole point of "Movie Trailer That Spoils Everything"
  • Twisted Echo Cut: "Channel Surfing"
  • Under the Mistletoe: Harry Potter attempts to set this up with Cho, but instead gets Dolores Umbridge, Professor McGonagall, and a dementor in "Harry Potter Accidentally Kisses Professor McGonagall". (Of course, Harry and McGonagall are played by Matt and Mallory, respectively.)
  • Unfortunate Names:
    • Agnes, who everyone assumes likes cats and crochets.
    • Master Smelly, who is reknowned for his "silent but deadly tactics."
  • Unsettling Gender Reveal: "Jeremy Isn't Real" not only reveals that the role of Jeremy is actually played by other members of the cast, but that Mallory isn't real, either, and is played by Jason. Matt is not happy to discover this, having kissed Mallory in several past sketches.
  • The Unsmile: There's a reason the Mona Lisa looks the way she does.
  • The Vamp: Carlie in the "Dungeons and Dragons" skit, besides being an experienced player in that game, she also used her feminine charm to manipulate her cousin's friends to give her their strongest equipment
  • Vocal Dissonance
    • Matt doing the voice of Spencer, a baby with the (creepily calm) voice of a grown man.
    • Natalie and Stacey's YouTube channel has a video where the cast lip syncs to Hamilton. Stacey's the only actor whose character (Aaron Burr) matches his gender. Natalie plays Alexander Hamilton, Mallory plays George Washington, and hilariously, James plays Angelica Schuyler and Matt plays Eliza Hamilton.
  • Vocal Range Exceeded: "Graduation Musical Number." Whitney can sing that high. Mal can't.
  • Wacky Sound Effect: Mal resorts to some of these in "Radio Mystery Hour" after an accident she caused.
  • Welcome to Corneria: Doc in "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! Parody", lampshaded.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Parodied in "The Smiths 2". When Adam is shot by Mrs. Smith, the sketch never mentions him again. The narrator even refers to the rest as "Mr. Smith's three brothers," completely excluding him, after his death.
  • Who's on First?: The "Detective Doctor" sketch runs entirely on this.
  • Worst Whatever Ever: Currently 5 of them.
