* FingerSnapLighter: Stan is able to do this in ''Way Out West'', which baffles Ollie. Ollie himself is able to do this after many tries, except he ScreamsLikeALittleGirl when he does.



* UrbanLegends: Laurel's resemblance to Creator/ClintEastwood resulted in a rumor that he was Eastwood's father, which has since been thoroughly debunked.

* RunningGag: There's a lot of those throughout most of their movie library.
** In most movies, Stan and (primarily) Ollie will often be victimized by a water gag, like Stan stepping on a hose which sprays water in Ollie's face in ''Night Owls'' for example.

* DriverFacesPassenger: In ''Two Tars'', Stan is so busy talking to Ollie that he nearly hits a light pole. A disgusted Ollie takes the wheel, says to Stan "first rule of the road -- drive straight ahead", and immediately after he says this, hits a light pole.

* HarpoDoesSomethingFunny: Stan and Ollie were masters of improvised comedy. They rarely rehearsed a scene because they wanted to capture the "magic" on film. Once when a guest star asked if they were going to rehearse, Stan Laurel shot back, "Do you want to ''spoil'' it?"
