Favorite Gel Color Combos

I'm designing a show this week (Iolanthe) which is far from my first lighting design, but I've never really gotten to experiment much with different gel color combinations. Which are your favorite combos (front, fill, back, side, etc.) for different set-ups. I'm looking for both the classic standards and less common combinations you've come across and enjoyed. I'm going to have a bit of free reign with this, so I'm curious to see what new (to me) things I might want to try. Rosco colors preferred.

Exit Stage Left

Does anyone know if there is, or ever has been, a recognized significance in a character's exiting stage right or stage left? Like, do bad guys typically exit stage left, etc. I know almost nothing about theatre, and this seems like it would be an esoteric trope or something. TIA.
