** There's also Rocko, who belongs to Stephen's parents.


** A RunningGag is that Stephen, the film school graduate and camera / cinematography fanatic, watches so few movies and dislikes going to the cinema. He has a sudden realisation during one Breakfast Stream that he didn't watch a single movie (in the cinema or at home) in the whole of the year 2019. Then, despite 2020 being a pandemic year when everyone was stuck inside, that streak extended to two years.

** Stephen waking Dan up with his guitar.
** Any time Stephen and Mal celebrate a birthday with Stephen's parents, expect some form of {{Hilarity Ensues}} when "Happy Birthday" is sung. Taken {{Up To Eleven}} during [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nsALvf05IbQ&list=PLkOr2vuFTeuU-CupD37uHlfv8z-ZwAebW&index=19&ab_channel=StephenVlog Stephen's 30th birthday celebration]], where Stephen's parents have ''Alexa'' sing "Happy Birthday."

Added DiffLines:

** According to the Disc Only Podcast, Stephen was ''already'' nicknamed "Grandpa" by Alex in the college days for repeatedly telling the same stories over and over.

Added DiffLines:

* SawStarWarsTwentySevenTimes: Young Stephen watched ''Film/AceVenturaWhenNatureCalls'' A LOT, and even now (despite being a former film student) it's his go-to example whenever he has to explain a filmmaking or comedy technique. Ironically, he only saw the trope namer ''Star Wars'' itself for the first time in 2018.

Added DiffLines:

* ForgetfulJones: Stephen's notoriously poor memory (for current things, while often being pixel-perfect on media he experienced as a kid) has become something of a RunningGag over the years.

Added DiffLines:

* InsistentTerminology: On Breakfast Stream, the Patreon ticker is always referred to as 'the beans', which started out as something Thomas said in chat.
** There's also Stephen's names for various figures from fictional franchises (see PopculturalOsmosisFailure).


Added DiffLines:

** In Lunch Bunch videos, Lindsey is always shown either in the process of leaving or having just left, something picked up by commenters. Justified as she was the only one with a conventional job and a limited lunch break.


** Day 1815, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cV2Uw8rPyRI surl]]" (intentionally with no caps), involves Stephen helping himself to a bag of cereal. It wouldn't be here if it didn't have a dash of MindScrew going for it.

Added DiffLines:

* PopculturalOsmosisFailure: A running joke is Stephen being shaky on the characters and plots of franchises such as ''Harry Potter'', ''Star Wars'' and ''Avatar: The Last Airbender'' (despite actually having watched the later) and coming up with his own names such as "Big Friend" for Hagrid or "Boomerang Buck" for Sokka.

* WordSalad: In the early vlog "[[http://stephengeorg.wikia.com/wiki/Pork_Dan_Get_His_Y_Juz_(Day_52_-_1/15/10) Pork Dan Get His Y Juz]]", Stephen and Alex use alphabetic fridge magnets to make the eponymous sentence on their fridge. Challenging viewers to suggest just what "Y Juz" is becomes a running theme in future vlogs.

* XDaysSince: In Breakfast Stream, the conversation frequently segues to Stephen talking about cameras or video processing (causing Mal, and some parts of the chat, to zone out). Mods made a Nightbot chat command for "Days since camera talk: 0", the joke being that it never changes from 0 because it never has to.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorVocabularyCalendar: Stephen likes the phrase 'my third eye decalcified' when referring to a revelation on live streams that lead him to re-examine his understanding of something - in mocking reference to this term being used by conspiracy theorists, as he explains on one of Proton Jon's streams. He also likes using 'galaxy brain' to half-sarcastically describe acts of genius.

Added DiffLines:

* ThatsWhatSheSaid: The variation "(Suggestive phrase) was my nickname in high school" occasionally shows up.
