Your favorite recurring riff?

“Hikeeba!”? “By this time, my lungs were aching for air!”? “SLEEEEEEEEP!!”?

My favorite - when a character urgently rushes out of the scene, usually because some critically important plot point was just revealed, leaving at least one other character behind:

“I wonder what (s)he wanted…?”

(He/She/They) seemed (nice/friendly)… “AT FIRST!”

For some reason, any references to the line “He’ll never touch you, Terry. You’re dirt” always gets a chuckle out of me.

“[Person 1] is [person 2] as [person 3]” always slays me.

I’m pretty sure it started there, but I heard tell of a legendary live show with much BANG! Also I think it was recurred occasionally in the other Netflix era shows.

The only recurring rff that I am not completely sick of is oddly enough “Oh I hate to shoot a butt like that!”
