* LousyLoversAreLosers: When Freddy and Tanya have sex at the beginning it's a pretty spectacular failure; he was [[UnfocusedDuringIntimacy daydreaming about being a rockstar the whole time and didn't notice she wasn't enjoying herself]]. When he gets offended when she [[ADateWithRosiePalms picks up her vibrator afterward]], Tanya retorts, "Pay attention and maybe you'll learn something."

!!''Garage Days'' uses the following tropes:

* BondageIsBad: Averted [[HehHehYouSaidX hard]] when Lucy and Tanya have sex. [[spoiler:It turns out that being tied to the bed and given electric shocks during the act was his perfect 10.]]
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Shad Kern.
* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Tanya's reaction when she discovers that Lucy accidentally gave them LSD: “I'm going to rip open your skull and piss in the cavity where your brain is supposed to be!”
* DarkChick: Angie. Her pastimes include "having sex in a cemetery" and "bathing in water laced with red dye #2".
* EggSitting: Joe takes care of a cantaloupe to demonstrate to Kate that he'd be a good father. It gets weird.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: Inverted with Lucy. He has a perfectly serviceable first name, Lucius, but goes by “Lucy” instead.
* ExactWords: Lucy won't ''sell'' the drugs he makes, because that would be pushing. He will, however, give concertgoers the drugs under the guise of “research”, and ask for “donations”.
* FauxlosophicNarration: Occasionally. The film has the occasional “arty” sequence where it goes into slow-mo, the color palette shifts, and we're treated to a character's {{internal monologue}}.
* GarageBand: ...yes.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Joe, in a fairly mundane version of this trope. He wants a normal life with Kate and their baby, as opposed to the secrets, lies, and drama that surrounds his secret relationship with Angie.
* IndulgentFantasySegue: Freddy, frequently.
* TheKillerBecomesTheKilled: More precisely, “the guy who tied up and robbed the pharmacist becomes a pharmacist and gets tied up and robbed.”
* LampshadedDoubleEntendre: Lucy, regarding pool: “It's such a sexual game. Balls, stick...”
-->'''Tanya:''' “Choice of holes?”
* MistakenForCheating: Arguably the Most Triumphant Example. Freddy thinks Joe is cheating on Kate. Kate thinks that Joe is cheating on her. Joe thinks he's cheating on Kate. [[spoiler: Joe isn't cheating, he's mentally ill. Angie, to whom Freddy overheard Joe talking, is a hallucination.]]
* MushroomSamba: Lucy. He instigates the two "fun with drugs" sequences, and his subplot begins when he homebrews drugs in a search for the “perfect 10”, his expression for the ultimate high.
* TheReveal: Two big ones.
** [[spoiler:Joe is mentally ill. Much of what we've seen of his private life, including the girl with whom he was cheating on Kate, have been his hallucinations.]]
** [[spoiler:The band sucks.]]
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:Joe's subplot revolves around his deteriorating mental health. Because the viewers often experience his delusions as he does, it's not immediately obvious that he's insane. See MistakenForCheating above.]]
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:The band sucks. Upon getting their big break, they get completely rejected by the crowd. As far as the band itself is concerned, nothing they did throughout the movie mattered.]]
* ShapedLikeItself: “Sexual frustration can be... frustrating.”
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: A major plot twist is given away on the poster.
