* TheEndOrIsIt: Lampshading the usage of this ending in ''Rattlers'':
-->'''Josh:''' This shot tells you one thing: [[SequelHook some dipshit actually thought there might be a sequel]].\\
'''Joel:''' Snakey will be back in ''Sweet Sweetsnake's Badass Song!''



* {{Padding}}: ''The Alien Factor'' gets a lot of mockery for its numerous drawn-out scenes of people just walking through the woods.

** [[invoked]] In ''Rattlers'', the outspoken feminist photographer has a boring scene of aimlessly wandering in the desert, prompting Mary Jo to chime in: "See? I can slow down the movie with meaningless walking scenes just as good as any man!"

** ''Rattlers'' has a brief shot where the romantic leads just appear as silhouettes, with the lights of Las Vegas behind them. Frank declares, "Just the silhouettes of the characters? That's lame!"



* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY:
** The policy trailer includes pronouncers for "Weinstein" and "Beaulieu".
** For those who missed that trailer, there's a sketch in ''The Wasp Woman'' where Mary Jo calls all the riffers to a business meeting, and refers to everyone by their last name for the duration.

* SubvertedCatchPhrase: ''Rattlers'', a film about deadly snakes, would be a perfect time to reuse that old chestnut, [[Film/{{Eegah}} "Watch out for snakes!"]] Instead, the riffers wait until the protagonist describes how snake tracks get easily "washed out" by rain or wind. [[spoiler:Then Frank chimes in, "''Wash out'' for snakes!"]]


* OnlyAModel: ''Santa Claus Conquers the Martians'' has a shadowrama segment where Joel gets impossibly cool presents for all the other riffers: Music/PaulMcCartney's bass guitar for Josh, a Tesla Roadster [[note]]which at the time was still a few years from public release[[/note]] for Mary Jo, and for Frank, the actual Moviola used to edit ''Film/CitizenKane''. But Joel insists that they can't do anything with their gifts until after the movie--and Frank [[SpottingTheThread points out that specific Moviola was destroyed in a studio fire]]. The others ask Joel if he really bought them presents, or just brought in the silhouettes of things that would be cool presents if they were real. Joel gets offended and asks for the movie to start again.

* LeaveTheCameraRunning:
** Discussed at the end of ''Doomsday Machine'', where the final scene has a tediously long segment with Daniel and Georgiana ''s-l-o-w-l-y'' fumbling with the spacecraft's control panel, not even talking to each other for minutes at a time. This leaves the riffers begging for something, ''anything'', to happen, and even cheering at the prospect of dialogue returning.
** Similarly, ''The Alien Factor'' features many, many scenes of characters walking slowly through the woods (or in one case, someone's backyard), prompting Joel to quip that it's "the safest movie, ever, to go to the bathroom during." During an early scene, where a shot of a woman running away from the monster just goes on and on and ''on'', Josh chimes in and pretends to be the director:
-->'''Josh:''' Aaand cut. Alright, let's print that. ''[beat]'' Aaaand we're cutting. ''[beat]'' Aaand we should stop the camera, guys. Guys! None of this is gonna end up in the final movie! Just cut!

* SceneryCensor: At the beginning of ''Frankenstein's Castle of Freaks'', the government official explains that they're premiering a new "boobie blimp" technology. Sure enough, just as a bathing scene begins in the film, a small blimp appears in the theater and hovers in just the right place to obscure the actress's breasts.

Added DiffLines:

* NoEnding: The live shows didn't continue the plot from the studio episodes. So when the Titans stopped doing studio episodes and just released recordings of the live show, this left the ongoing plot (the true nature of the Titan's captors, and the question of whether they'd ever fix the "tear in the electron scaffolding") unresolved. Granted, [[ExcusePlot said plot's a transparent excuse to make the cast watch bad movies]], so leaving it unfinished doesn't hurt that much.

Added DiffLines:

* CantGetAwayWithNuthin: Partway through ''Blood of the Vampires'', Frank decides he [[INeedAFreakingDrink needs a freaking drink]]. Immediately after taking said drink, he gets a phone call from his AA sponsor. Frank tries to insist that it was just apple juice--[[LampshadeHanging then he wonders how the hell his sponsor found out about his drinking so quickly]], and throws the phone away in panic.


Added DiffLines:

* INeedAFreakingDrink: Josh brings some unspecified alcohol into the theater for ''Blood of the Vampires'' and offers to share it with everyone else. Mary Jo initially declines--but upon realizing they aren't even halfway through the movie yet, quickly changes her mind. And Frank has been sober for years after going through Alcoholics Anonymous, but decides this movie is the perfect occasion to fall off the wagon.


* SpecialEditionTitle: Since the ColdOpen of ''Santa Claus Conquers the Martians'' involves [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Trace trying to run away]], the opening titles see him dragged into the theater by soldiers, rather than walking in himself like normal.
