Added DiffLines:

* FaceHeelTurn: According to Wendolene, Preston was once a sweet dog, but he recently turned in a murderous schemer.


Added DiffLines:

* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: After Preston's malfunctioning hide is disassembled in the Mutton-O-Matic, Wallace rebuilds him to be a good dog again. The result however is a much more basic, pitiful looking robot running on wheels and powered by remote control. According to Wendolene however, his behaviour is just like his old self.]]

* PunnyName: Shaun rhymes with "shorn" (as in "sheared") in non-rhotic varieties of English. The DVDComentary has an amusing bit of Nick Park trying helplessly to say it with an American accent.

* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Walice's first scene with Wendonlie is the first time he's ever shown actually contemplating the outcome of his actions, as opposed to his usual devil-may-care attitude with Gromit or one of his inventions. It's the first sign that he has feeling for her.

* BrickJoke: Shawn is introduced to the duo after he spends several hours munching on all of their possession. At the end, as they settle down for some cheese (only to reveal that he's eating ''that'' too), you can see most of their furniture has been repaired... by putting ''band-aids'' on them.

** The first sign of Shawn's intrusion is that he chewed through the wires on Wallace's porridge dispenser, resulting in the machine malfunction and pelting him with machine-gun porridge. Later, Gromit uses this as EdibleAmmunition against Preston.

* BreakTheHaughty: Gromit takes being falsely accused of sheep rustling and incarceration pretty well at first. But when he gets a package from Wallace in his cell, the magnitude of this whole unfair situation comes crashing down on him and he weeps while pounding his fist on the table.
