* OnOneCondition: If one of the Stooges is going to earn an inheritance, there will always be some stipulation that will become the situation for the short.

* SpecialEffectsFailure: While normally averted, whenever a dummy was used for a stunt, its ''very'' obvious. But the majority of the shorts were made pre-1950's, so you had to work with what you got.

* ValuesDissonance: While the Stooges shorts didnt suffer as much from this due to their timeless feel, a lot of the WW2-era shorts have unfortunate implications today, especially an infamous episode that used real life japanese internment prisoners to play japanese spies.

* WouldHitAGirl: While they didnt subject women to the same kind of violence they used on eachother and other men, they had a common routine using a judo flip when they were getting back at women who hit them. And of course in food fights everyone was fair game.

* GeorgeJetsonJobSecurity: The Stooges would get fired at the drop of a hat, wether deservedly or not. Justified in that most of their shorts took place during or just after the Depression, which had job security that makes modern day Right To Work laws look postively draconian.

** One episode has the three working as riveters on a construction site. Larry is grilling hot dogs on the rivet fire, but is caught by their boss, and quickly switches back to heating the rivets. However, Curly catches the next rivet, thinking its a hot dog, and eats it. He doesnt even notice what it really is.

* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: The stooges are basically doing something different in every episode, that is when they actually have a job.

* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: While the Stooges usually mess up and cause mayhem, half the blame really have to be placed on their employers, who always just assume that three random bozos off the street can do the job competently.

* LethalChef: None of the Stooges were portrayed as very competent chefs, but Curly was by far the worst, which of course meant that he was the one who usually had the role of cook. One RunningGag had him frying eggs by breaking them in the pan shells and all, and his hotcakes were impossible to cut with a knife.

* ObviouslyEvil: The villains of the WW2-shorts, who were usually japanese spies, fifth columnists and nazis. Even the ones who didnt think it was a good idea to run around in full uniform on american soil, still walked around doing the heil Hitler salute in broad daylight, and one nazi spy in particular wore a giant iron cross medallion.

* TheToothHurts: Used in ''I Can Hardly Wait'', where Curly gets a toothache.

* TheToothHurts: Used in ''I Can Hardly Wait'', where Curly gets a toothache.toothache after breaking his tooth on a hambone. The rest of the short consists of Curly moaning in pain, and Moe and Larry trying to get it out.

Added DiffLines:
* TheToothHurts: Used in ''I Can Hardly Wait'', where Curly gets a toothache.** In-universe as well. The Stooges may quarrel constantly but always stick together and try to help eachother.
