!!Tropes:

!!Tropes:!!Tropes about the show in general:



* BrickJoke: Used in many stories. The roadkill in Christmas on the Road, for one. The scent trick with the lightbulbs in Dave Cooks the Turkey.
* BumblingDad: Dave.



* ItIsPronouncedTroPay: Stuart pronounces "schedule" with a soft "ch" and emphasizes the "p" in "raspberry". So many listeners wrote in about how they found his pronunciation strange that he dedicated an entire segment to speak with the editor in charge of the Canadian edition of the Oxford English Dictionary and they discussed the historical origins of Canadian English and how Stuart represents a small group of Canadians whose pronunciations reflect their country's British roots.
* LettersToTheEditor: The Vinyl Cafe Story Exchange.
* NostalgiaFilter: Stuart's default tone.


!!Tropes about Dave and Morley Stories:

* FanService[=/=]FanDisservice: In "Float Tank", Stuart describes Kenny Wong as wearing a speedo and having a sagging belly. The audience is audibly uncomfortable at the description so Stuart immediately backtracks and describes Kenny as having a sculpted body while having Dave lampshade it to the audience's raucous laughter.
* {{Flashback}}: Given[=McLean's=] fascination with the past, it is his signature style. He would quite often put half of the story on hold to allow for a very extensive digression on a character's background. In one of the anthologies, there is a story with a flashback embedded in a flashback.
* {{Foil}}: Mary Turlington, a neurotically perfectionist accountant, versus Dave, a laid-back rocker who seems to actually be enjoying his life.
