It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt.
I went on a Simpsons binge recently, so off the top of my head...
The ambiguity of Waylon Smithers' sexual preference
Homer's lifelong dreams
Prank calls to Moe
Moe hiding stuff in the back of the bar
Crappy films from the past (Usually involving Troy McClure)
Three Stooges immitations
Bart doing funny voices (also ties in with the above)
Eyes only visible when in the dark
"Hi everybody!" "Hi Dr Nick!"
"Smithers, who is that ___?" "He's Homer Simpson, sir, one of your ____ from sector 7G."
Mr Burns owing Smithers a coke
"Let's get out of here!" and other variants, while someone is in peril
"Hello, I'm Troy McClure. You may remember me from..."
Stuff between the Simpsons floorboards during a pan from floor to floor
"One last day until retirement."
Maggie falling down
"Eat my shorts", "Bitchin'!", "Cowabunga!" (Yes, he did say it)
Bart swearing and Marge scolding him for it
Homer talking to his brain
"I'm Bart Simpson, who the hell are you?"
"Thank you, come again."
Someone running offscreen and a car engine starting
Marge hiding stuff in her hair
Mr Burns looking at the surveillance monitors
Homer mispronouncing words
Lisa writing in her diary
Skinner's war stories
Space mutants, happy little elves, mcbain, etc
Thoughts going through people's head ("Hello joe!" "Is there a chance the track could bend?")
Homer threatening and shaking his fist
Calling something and told to hold, while ironic music plays
"Won't somebody please think of the children?!"
Homer throwing books into the fireplace
Why so few mate?
I started and couldn't stop. There's probably many more though.
Hard to imagine all these gags in a HD episode, but it would be nice...
since diversity pumpkin listed all the ones i could think of, i'll just list my favorites that they don't do:
-prank calls to moe (really kinda disappointed they didn't bring this back in lost verizon)
-homer's lifelong dreams
-inappropriate hold music
-Troy McClure. You might remember me from (though it's obvious why they stopped this one)
some gags i miss more then others of course, but oh well. now they have new gags! it's just a shame not all of them are you know... good.
Oh, that thing where a character hears the same line over and over in their head. "A part of us all, a part of us all, a part of us all".
Rainier Wolfcastle's latest scene from a movie.
"Now lets go out for frosty chocolate milkshakes" which in addition to being used in early episodes was also used in the Tracey Ullman shorts.
- Marge's slight perverted streak (which went a long way to explaining her marriage to Homer).
- Skinner's random mispronunciations.
- ORANGE DRINK.
- Chief Wiggum's "that's some good/fine work, boys" proclamation after the Springfield cops do something asinine or inappropriate.
- Grandpa's letters.
I am disgusted with the way old people are depicted on television. We are not all vibrant, fun-loving sex maniacs. Many of us are bitter, resentful individuals who remember the good old days when entertainment was bland and inoffensive. The following is a list of words I never want to hear on television again:
- Number one: bra.
- Number two: horny.
- Number three: family jewels.
Abraham J. Simpson
And I think "orange drink" is self-explanatory.
I'm drinking orange drink right now...
I don't understand for the orange drink, can you give an example ?
and I need an example of this one (inappropriate hold music)
Are you saying "Boo" or "Boo-urns"?
Homer phones a lost child hotline, and the hold song is "baby come back"
The Krusty doll attacks Homer in 'Clown without pitty', Marge phones the support hotline, the hold song is "Everybody loves a clown"
EDIT : Ok.

No. That's why I was confused.
I would barely call that a running gag.
A better Skinner running gag is how he used to mispronounce words whenever he was giving a speech. ("And now, Sherbert's...eh, Schubert's Unfinished Symphony...") I think the last time they used it was in "Lisa's Sax".
