4 Second Silences are a common example of returning phrases in the script. Inspite other running gags and catchphrases, this is not said by any character, but used in the script itself to explain that there is silence for 4 seconds, as in an "awkward silence". a 4 Second Silence occurs after a character says something that should be funny but isn't, or something awkward that the other characters do not know how to respond to. In episode 4, both שבדמרק (Šved/mark, Sweden and Denmark's ship) and בלגיברד (Belgi/Bard, Belgium and Svalbard's ship) go on dates, in defferent places. Both dates include 4 second silences, and both couples notice it and talk about it being awkward.
