Subject: stupid laugh

What, asks the client, is the stupid laugh everyone does at the end of nearly

every T.V. show/sit-com (and a few movies) at the very end? For example, in

Star Trek, Dr. McCoy makes some crack about Spock, crew chuckles,

end-of-show. He wonders, if, in scripts, they have a phrase for this,

such ask "Cut to the gerplax" or "finish with a gerplax" where gerplax,

of course is the stupid laugh everyone does &etc.?
