* HeroicSacrifice: Reverend Mother ''lied'' to the thiefs when saying that "Mary Clarence" is indeed a nun, when she is not. Remember, Reverend Mother is a nun (and a highly conservative one to boot), saying lies is a big deal for them. But, if she didn't, they would have killed Deloris, which justified it.

Two films that star WhoopiGoldberg as Deloris Van Cartier, a Reno lounge singer who pretends to be a nun and introduces excitement into the formerly-solemn local church music.

* [[ActionFilmQuietDramaScene Comedy Film, Quiet Drama Scene]]: While a number of the character-driven scenes in the convent as Deloris gets to know the nuns could count as this, the best example is when she first meets Mary Robert.

In '''Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit''', Deloris returns to visit her old friends at the convent and finds that the community school they've been teaching at is slowly going under. Deloris agrees to return as Sister Mary Clarence and teach the music class to a large group of very disinterested teenagers (led by a young Lauryn Hill). After a series of pranks being pulled on her, she strikes back in her own way and humbles the kids so that she can work with them. She decides to form the kids into a choir, singing the same sort of music from the previous film.

When the helicopter pilot refuses to fly the nuns to Reno, they pray, out loud and right in front of him in passive-aggressive fashion, that God will be kinder to the helicopter pilot than he was to them. They needle him by committee until he gives in.

* HeyLetsPutOnAShow: While the choir competition in the sequel isn't created or put on by Deloris and the other nuns, it otherwise fulfills this trope, seeing as it a) gives the students confidence in themselves b) proves the school is and can be successful again and c) convinces the archdiocese [[SavingTheOrphanage not to close it]].
