* AwesomeMusic: Neil Brand's score for ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5z_Tl-1CthM You're Darn Tootin[='=]]]'', written for the 2006 documentary "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-muqmmjGvW0 Paul Merton's Silent Clowns]]".
* HeReallyCanAct: Stan Laurel as Lord Paddington in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvO0E_8JUk0 A Chump at Oxford]]''. Oliver Hardy alongside John Wayne in ''The Fighting Kentuckian''.
* HoYay: Yes, but really only by today's standards; the notion that "close friends of the same sex = homosexual tension" is a modern idea that would have never occurred to Stan and Babe.
** However, the silent short ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cyKRNCWZN8 Liberty]]'' involves them breaking out of prison, changing out of their uniforms and into civilian clothes, getting each other's pants by mistake, and then repeatedly being caught in public dropping their pants while trying to swap them, leading to hilarious amounts of NotWhatItLooksLike.
** And at the end of ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scnFp2s28g8 Our Wife]]'' Stan and Ollie do somehow end up married. ItMakesSenseInContext.
** Especially in one scene in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4017sOFyOFM Beau Hunks]]'' where Ollie caresses Stan's foot, [[EpicFail thinking that it's his foot]]. Then it starts getting hilarious when he blows on Stan's toes ''for no reason''.
** In ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_ID7mgfUcI Busy Bodies]]'', Stan tries to get Ollie's hands out of a wooden window frame, and it looks like he's twerking the camera.
* IronWoobie: ''Stan''. He goes through HUGE amounts of physical and verbal abuse at the hands of Ollie, and yet is still patient and often [[TranquilFury retaliates]] in a tit-for-tat way.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: [[spoiler: Ollie dies for real in the Flying Deuces.]] [[spoiler: Cut to Stan, now poor, wandering along a country lane...then comes Ollie reincarnated as a (rather cross) horse.]]
* MagnumOpus: ''Film/TheMusicBox'' for the duo-Laurel even considered it the best out of all the 106 films they made, and many fans agree. ''Film/BigBusiness'' could also qualify as their best silent effort, or ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZ_JZBCkqvA Two Tars.]]'' And ''Way Out West'' or ''Film/SonsOfTheDesert'' can qualify for the best of their feature films.
* MemeticMutation: Stan's "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDrYVzb5KAU magic thumb lighter]]" from ''Way Out West'' is the subject of [[http://www.deviantart.com/art/Laurel-y-Hardy-en-la-modernidad-283125666 many]] [[http://princesstigerlili.deviantart.com/art/Laurel-and-Hardy-71906606 fanart]]. Similarly is a well known [[http://worldcinemaparadise.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Laurel-and-Hardy-Shh.jpg picture]] of the duo putting their fingers to their mouths to say "SSH!"-It even provides the main page image!
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpc9fxkuV6o dance]] the two do in ''Way Out West'' has been [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkZGg0qNdCc remixed]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KL3mHPmNKRE several]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VR-eeTlJkw times]] on [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1tkXHr2y6s Youtube.]]
** "Well, here's another nice mess you've gotten me into!"
** From ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqG5EP-Tsh4 Brats:]]'' "You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil must be ''lead.''"
* {{Moe}}: Stan for the most part, due to his adorable smile and the fact that he is the more [[ManChild child-like]] of the duo. Ollie could also be regarded as a big, cuddly, ''very'' grumpy teddy bear.
* MostWonderfulSound: An in-universe example-in ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4017sOFyOFM Beau Hunks]]'', it's the sound of Laurel and Hardy coming to help the trapped and heavily outnumbered troops at Fort Arid.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Long before anyone had heard of [[TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]], the exasperated cry of "D'oh!" was a trademark of frequent L&H foil [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Finlayson_(actor) Jimmy Finlayson.]]
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Subverted-despite the films being made in the 20s and 30s, chances are that if you show one of their best works to groups of teenagers, adults or children who have never seen them before, they'll all be laughing within a few minutes.
* ValuesDissonance: ''Bonnie Scotland'' has not aged well at all-it was set during a time when the British Empire still ruled, and it shows the mutinying Indians as evil villains, when they were in fact fighting against British racism themselves. Similarly, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGj5UIrabD0 Pardon Us]]'' has the boys donning ''blackface makeup'' to hide on a (rather happy) cotton plantation, of all things.
