--> "The game starts now. You have to score one thousand points. If you do that, you take home a tank with a big gun. Each day we will announce the scores from that loudspeaker. The one who has the fewest points will have to wear a sign that says 'Jackass' on his back. There are three ways to lose points. One, turning into a big crybaby. Two, telling us you want to see your mommy. Three, saying you're hungry and want something to eat. "

-->'''Guido:''' You can't imagine how much I feel like making love to you. But I'll never tell anyone, especially not you. They'd have to torture me to make me say it.
-->'''Dora:''' Say what?
-->'''Guido:''' That I want to make love to you - not just once, but over and over again! But I'll never tell you that. I'd have to be crazy to tell you.

** This is pretty much the reason Guido gets away with half the stuff he pulls, ranging from his repeated run ins with Dora to announcing over the intercom system of a concentration camp.
* RichSuitorPoorSuitor: Dora has very rich but obnoxious fiance at the beginning of the movie, whom she later breaks up with to be with Guido.

* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: "Buongiorno Principessa!" was the pickup line Guido used several times to be noticed by Dora during the first half, and used when he hijacks the concentration camp's speaker system to let her know that he and Giosuè were still alive in the second.
* SpiritualSuccessor: Often treated as this way in comparison to Film/TheDayTheClownCried.

The first half of the film contains elements of the RomanticComedy, featuring a young Italian Jew named Guido Orefice planning to set up his own bookstore, working as a waiter, and trying his best to romance Dora (NicolettaBraschi), a young Christian schoolteacher who comes from a much richer family, while living with his uncle. Several years pass, and the two have a son, but become estranged from the rich relatives: however, they begin to reconcile.
