During the closing credits, a meeting between Possum Lodge members takes place. It is the third longest-running segment on The Red Green Show in terms of appearances, behind Handyman Corner and Adventures With Bill. Most meetings take place in the lodge basement and always begin with the sounds of the possum squeal as the members arrive. After the members arrive, they all stand up and cross their arms over their chests, and recite the lodge's motto: "Quando omni flunkus moritati" (which is pseudo-Latin for "When all else fails, play dead").

Beginning in the ninth season, Red Green would then remind the members to bow their heads for the Man's Prayer: "I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess." The Man's Prayer first appeared in the Men Anonymous segment, and after that segment was discontinued after the eighth season, was incorporated into the meeting itself. In The Big Retreat, women took over the Lodge, Red substituted the Woman's Prayer: "I am woman, hear me roar, I'm in charge, get over it". This segment debuted in Season 2, and ran until the series finale, where they said the Revised Man's Prayer: "I'm a man, but I changed, because I had to. Oh well."
