The jokes keep building on and on until they become an irreplaceable part of the series that we love and look out for it. In fact, it can even shed light on a show that is otherwise serious and dramatic.
We’ve created a slideshow below of 17 of our favorite running gags on television!
Greenberg – Teen Wolf
To this day we still wish we knew who Greenberg was. Instead, he remains the faceless student who always got on Coach Finstock’s nerves.
Robin vs. Patrice – How I Met Your Mother
The Slap Bet was definitely a funny one, but for us, the Robin and Patrice feud takes the cake. Mostly because it wasn’t actually a feud and Robin was basically feuding with herself.
Ross’ (many) marriages – Friends
We considered putting, “WE WERE ON A BREAK!” on here but really, that was just more annoying than funny. Instead, we went with Ross’ many marriages and engagements and how many times the group liked to make a joke out of it.
“Title of your sex tape.” – Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Any time Amy makes a remark that could somehow possibly be said during sex, Jake immediately yells “title of your sex tape!” But now that they’re a married couple he’s altered the phrase slightly to “title of our sex tape!” Is it weird to find that kinda adorable?
Cussing – The Good Place
The inability to cuss in The Good Place has created new unofficial curse words all across social media. Instead of dropping an F-bomb, try saying “What the fork?” instead. It’s surprisingly just as satisfying.
“How rude!” – Fuller House
Stephanie Tanner’s famous catchphrase on Full House was always “how rude!” She may no longer be a kid in the reboot, but she really hasn’t changed a bit.
