* DeliberatelyJumpingTheGun: The rivalry between Sean Thornton and Will Danaher comes to a head, and the two combatants prepare for a slugfest. Danaher makes a show of raising his arms and announcing to the crowd, "Marquis of Queensbury! Marquis of Queensbury!" meaning that he intends to fight in accordance with the rules of boxing, as set forth by the Marquis of Queensbury. Sean Thornton, wanting to signify the same intention, mimics Danaher's performance. Thornton barely gets his hands down when Danaher wallops him with right hook that sends Thornton reeling.

* CurbStompBattle: This is how the final fight plays out in the short story, as opposed to the long, drawn-out affair in the movie. The drama is in Sean making up his mind to fight Will. Once he does, Will doesn't stand a chance against a professional boxer.

(Although it's worth noting that while the movie fight is long, it's still rather one sided, being downplayed to a CurbStompCushion at best. The only blows Danaher can land are a couple of sucker punches, and aside from that Thornton thoroughly cleans his clock. The only drama comes from Danaher having a size advantage and being willing to fight much dirtier than Thornton.)

** The confessional scene between Mary Kate and Father Lonergan was partially done in the Gaelic language, one of the few Hollywood movies to use the native Irish dialect.

* DowryDilemma: Inverted. An argument over a dowry provides the conflict. The husband cares nothing about the dowry that his brother-in-law refuses to pay, but his wife is very upset about her husband not receiving her dowry and is mad at her husband for not demanding it (not for the sake of the money itself, but what it represents).

* TheTroubles: Hand-waved. There are a few IRA activists in Innisfree (including Michaeleen), but they mostly hang out at the pub discussing what to drink next. Subverted at the end when the town's Catholics (including Father Lonergan and Father Paul) pretend to be Protestant so that the Playfairs can stay.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: There really would be no correct Irish language term for 'sleeping bag'. When Ireland was conquered by the British, the Irish language was phased out and English became the dominant language. When Ireland received its independence, there were suddenly hundreds of modern conveniences that they had no Irish words for. So they had to just make them up.



* BigDamnKiss: When Sean... [[RunningGag John Wayne]] catches Mary Kate cleaning up his newly repurchased home, he grabs her before she can run out, and with the wind and storm blowing outside and into the house, he plants a big kiss on her. It's one of the most-remembered scenes from the movie.
** Right before she slaps him for the impertinence.
*** And when she does leave, she leans in for a small kiss of her own to show she really didn't mind the big one.

* CasualtyInTheRing: Sean Thort... John Wayne killed a fellow boxer in a match, hence the reason he refuses to fight Danaher until the final reel.
