    Default Best Running Gags in TV Shows

    My two favorite are these.

    No one ever said where knew where Fez was from.

    Am watching that 70's show right now and he just chewed out Jacky calling her bitter and mean and when the argument was over she said she was going to pack up and leave and Hyde said that it was kind of harsh.

    Fez "Yeah It must have been my Jamaican fire."

    Hyde "So you are Jamaican"

    Fez "No my new cologne Jamaican Fire."

    The other one Is how we never saw Maris. Niles wife on Frasier.

    Frasier: Will Maris be joining us?
    Niles: Sadly, no. She had a bad experience there one Christmas Eve. The Italian soccer team was at the next table, Maris announced that she was in the mood for a goose, and, perhaps inevitably, tragedy ensued.

    Frasier: I thought Maris was joining us?
    Niles: Oh, no. I'm afraid Maris is having one of her episodes. In the middle of dressing for the evening, she suddenly slumped down on the edge of the bed in her half-slip and sighed. Of course, I knew then and there that dinner was not to be.

    I loved how we never saw mom and dad's hands or face or anything but their feet and legs in cow and chicken.
    "i love you daddy" and all of a sudden it's the best day of my life

    Yeah, it was pretty creepy seeing their shadows only consisting of legs and feet

    "Your money or your life."

    "...."

    "I said, your money or your life!"

    "I'm thinking it over!!!!!"



    And that's a running gag that dates back to radio.
    The Punisher: Iím going to cauterize your rectum, sealing it shut, so when you turn those delicious Pink Pantsô Fruit Pies into waste products the bilirubin in your feces will leach into your bloodstream and youíll die screaming! And Iíll watch while having sex with this grateful prostitute!

    Trussed-Up Hooker: Blueberry are my favorite!

    In other words, what StoneGold said.

    We never got to see Norm's wife Vera on "Cheers" either. She was in an episode, but she got hit in the face with a pie so her face was never seen.

    I was going to mention that... come to think of it, did we ever get to see Cliff's mom?

    Maris was the best of the group though, there was never much reason for Vera or Cliff's mom to go to the bar, but really no good reason for Maris not to show up for family events, so they had to be creative.
    ... in my pants.

    Yes, many times. Frances Sternhagen played her.
