Stock Phrases are a line of dialogue which get [[SeenItAMillionTimes repeated very often]] in different fictional works, but always carrying the same meaning each and every time they're used. In many cases, they will only be uttered in a specific situation, and often with the same exact words each time. In [[BetterThanABareBulb lampshade-heavy]] works, may be followed with "IAlwaysWantedToSayThat".

If the phrase is a signature line closely associated with a single character or specific work, it becomes their CatchPhrase.

Closely related to the StockParodies. When you've heard the entire ''conversation'' before, it may have degenerated into a ClicheStorm. See also StockQuotes, which can be attributed to a single source but get quoted over and over in the same way each time.

For "stock phrases" whose meaning is exclusive to Troper wiki culture, see the index of PredefinedMessages.

See also OtherStockPhrases that don't have their own article.
