* GoshDangItToHeck: Not in the movie, but a meta-example. Richard Farnsworth was going to turn down the film because he didn't like the language in ''BlueVelvet''. Only several personal assurances by Lynch and the other writers that the film would contain no cursing did he agree to do it.

* TheSonsAndTheSpears: Used as a metaphor for family, with Alvin convincing the pregnant teenage runaway to go back home to her family, who will eventually understand. Within Alvin's own narrative, it reinforces his plot-driving need to reconnect with his estranged brother.

* CampfireCharacterExploration: Provides the setting for an aesop subplot. Alvin passes a young female hitchhiker who later approaches his campfire and says that she could not get a ride. In conversation, Alvin astutely deduces that she is pregnant and has run away from home. Alvin tells the hitchhiker about the importance of family by using the metaphor of a bundle of sticks that is hard to break. The next day Alvin find that his hitchhiker friend has gone but left him a bundle of sticks tied together, implying that she plans to return home to her own family.

* DoubleMeaningTitle: The man's name is Straight, but calling the movie "The Straight Story" makes joking reference to the fact that Creator/DavidLynch is [[PlayingWithATrope "playing it straight"]] and telling a coherent, mainstream "story" instead of [[MindScrew screwing with your head]] as usual.
