Most of these are more like running jokes. I guess there aren't as many cliches as I thought.

Bender sometimes does some internal dialogue, particularly when it comes to confidence in bending bars.

wow, excluding the last two posts, this thread has been dead longer than I've been a member of PEEL.

the biggest cliche that I can think of is the routine where Fry will declare his love for Leela, ask her out, and then get rejected when she reveals that she already has a date with someone else.

Cliche is different. Standing on a rake is a cliche because its been done in a lot of media but running jokes are specifically for the fans, not the common viewer.

Does that make any sense. Bah Im tired.

A pompous, cowardly starship captain (Zapp) who thinks he knows everything about everything, and puts his smarter, wiser subordinate down, taking all the credit when things work out, but putting all the blame on that same subordinate when everything falls apart.

One thing I've noticed...whenever Bender throws something away, he always makes the exact same "Hyep!" sound.

Leela falling for a man, who turns out to be a jerk (Zapp and Chazz) or one who's from an alternate universe (Lars).  And the man Leela is with, the relationship doesn't last long.

Yes, it is, but I've never eaten Archduke Chocula, so I don't know how it tastes.

Bender's "little bender" signaling things (incoming e-mail, telephone voicemails, emergency summon's from Mayor Poopenmeyer, etc).
