** 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

-->'''Sean:''' [through clenched teeth] That's a good grip you have, Danaher. I always hated a flabby handshake myself.

* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: Much of the problems between Mary Kate and Sean stem from him not wanting to fight her brother to get her rightful dowry. Due to their transatlantic CultureClash, he doesn't understand why she's obsessing about the money, and she doesn't understand why he won't fight for her legacy. In the end, Sean does demand the money, and when Danaher finally hands it over, he and Mary Kate promptly toss it into a furnace, starting the fight. Ultimately, it was more about Mary Kate's husband standing up for her and her honor than having the money.

* SuspiciouslyAproposMusic: The village men welcome Sean by singing "Wild Colonial Boy". Just as they get to the verse where the song's protagonist robs the local squireen, who should walk in but squire "Red" Will Danaher, who was "robbed" of White O' Morn by Sean. Lampshaded when Fahy, the accordionist, mockingly addresses Will as "squireen".

* UnwantedAssistance: During the big fight between Sean and Danaher when ever one of them was knocked down a guy would throw a bucket of water in his face, then the crowd would pick him up and throw him back into the fight.
