* RomanticFalseLead: Two, [=SanDeE*=] , who is something of a rebound girl for Harris, who he splits up with fairly amicably at the end, and Roland, Sara's ex-husband, who's only real flaw is his arrogance, which he seems unaware of.

* FrenchCuisineIsHaughty: ''LAStory'' has a very snooty French restaurant called l'Idiot, where the lead has to show his bank balance and several other references even to get a reservation. Snooty character played to LargeHam perfection by Creator/PatrickStewart.

Added DiffLines:

* OvercomplicatedMenuOrder: The restaurant scene has the people at the table order espressos of escalating length, with Harris topping them all (and setting the rest of the table telling the waiter to add a twist of lemon to the orders they've already made).
--> '''Harris:''' I'll have a half double decaffeinated half-caf, with a twist of lemon.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: JohnLithgow was going to be in the film as super-agent Harry Zell, and some of his scenes appear in some trailers for it, but was eventually cut. He can still be seen as the man in the distance talking to the magical Road Sign before Harrison himself encounters the sign, but all of his dialogue is gone. The cut scenes are available on some DVD versions.

* {{It Is Pronounced Tro-PAY}}: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. Harris and his friends agree to meet at a trendy new restaurant whose name is pronounced "leed-YO", but when the scene shifts there, we see that it's actually spelled "L'Idiot", and that ''is'' the correct pronunciation in French.
