In Adventures With Bill, one of the most common running jokes is damaging the Possum Van, usually by knocking off one or both of the rear-view mirrors (if it's just one rear-view mirror, it will usually be the left one) or flattening at least one tire. This is almost always caused by Bill Smith, Walter or another character throwing something carelessly toward the van, or something being launched at the van due to gravity.
