--> "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. "

** 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.
