This was tough because there are so many running gags that it took me forever to decide. So think of these as suggestions. Trust me, if I used every running gag you would all die of alcohol poisoning.
Take a Drink: every time someone says, “I’ve made a huge mistake.”
Take a Drink: every time there is a bad impersonation of a chicken.
Take a Drink: every time one of Gob’s tricks fail, particularly his flame throwers.
Take a Drink: every time they say Barry Zuckerkorn is “very good.”
Take a Drink: every time Lucille Bluth says something racist.
Take a Drink: every time they refer to Ann Veal as, “her?”
Take a Drink: every time they play the music that tells you Oscar is really Buster’s actual father.
Do a Shot: every time they play the sad Charlie Brown music
Do a Shot: every time someone uses Michael’s dead wife in an argument.
I hope you all survive. Drink at your own risk. You have been warned.
