* 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?"

* FranchiseZombie: Larry Harmon's attempts to make more Laurel and Hardy-related material after the duo's death. He succeeded somewhat with the 1960s Creator/HannaBarbera series, but flopped spectacularly with the 1999 film ''The All-New Adventures of Laurel and Hardy: For Love or Mummy''.

* TheCastShowoff: Ollie had quite a set of pipes. (For those who don't know what that means, it means that he sings really well.) Plus, both the boys frequently got to show off their dancing, especially in ''Way Out West''.

* CreatorBacklash: Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy (particularly Laurel) later gave negative comments towards their 1940s films for 20th Century Fox and MetroGoldwynMayer. This was largely due to the duo being given little creative freedom on those movies.
** Interestingly, more recent research reveals that Laurel partially directed at least one of the films. What's more, Hardy included one of the duo's Fox films, ''Jitterbugs'' (1943) on his 'Top 5 Favorite Films' list.
** Stan Laurel later called the production of ''Atoll K'', the team's final film, "an abortion." Production was so chaotic that entire book was recently written on it.
** Producer Hal Roach disliked ''Babes in Toyland'' (1934). Apparently, this stemmed from creative differences between Roach and Laurel.

* NeverMyFault: Whenever things invariably went wrong, Ollie would tell Stan "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into!" This was Ollie's CatchPhrase.

* NeverMyFault: Whenever When things invariably went (inevitably) go wrong, Ollie would tell Stan will ''always'' blame Stan. It's right there in his CatchPhrase: "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into!" This was Ollie's CatchPhrase.into!"
** In fairness, it usually ''is'' Stan's fault, although Ollie is more than capable of screwing up on his own.
