* TheBoxingEpisode: Peppone organizes a big boxing match the very day Don Camillo is supposed to return to Brescello to distract everyone's attention from the beloved priest's return. A boxing champion confronts a local boxer in the community hall. The local boxer is defeated, so Peppone attacks the champion, who knocks him out. Then, [[BadassPreacher Don Camillo]] steps into the ring...ring, and one punch from him is enough to KO the champion. Camillo then lectures everyone about their lust for such violent spectacle.

Added DiffLines:


Followed by ''Film/DonCamillosLastRound''.

Added DiffLines:

* HearingVoices: In Brescello, Don Camillo usually hears the voice of Jesus himself and he often has conversations with him whenever he is close to the crucifix of his church. In the mountainous village, the crucifix of the church does not answer him. So, he goes back to Brescello to bring back the crucifix.


* MisplacedAccent: In addition to Camillo, Peppone and numerous characters who were introduced in the first film, Camillo's sacristan woman also has a Marseille (Mediterranean part of France) accent, whereas the film also takes place in Italy like the previous one.


Added DiffLines:

* TranslationConvention: The film takes place in Italy, but in the French version, everybody speaks French. During filming, the French actors spoke French, while the Italian actors spoke Italian. Then the Italian actors were dubbed for the French version. Strangely, everybody speaks French with a Marseille (Mediterranean part of France) accent (Don Camillo, Peppone, Camillo's sacristan...).


* TheBoxingEpisode: A boxing champion confronts a local boxer in the community hall. The local boxer is defeated, so Peppone attacks the champion, who knocks him out. Then, [[BadassPreacher Don Camillo]] steps into the ring...

Added DiffLines:

* ToiletHumour: Peppone wants to force Marchetti, an ex-fascist, to drink castor oil (a laxative). Marchetti turns things around and forces Peppone to drink a glass of oil. Then Don Camillo forces Marchetti to drink a glass of oil. Finally, Jesus forces Don Camillo to drink it too.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: When Don Camillo gets in the ring to confront the boxer who has knocked out Peppone, the camera does not show the ring any more, but the audience of the match. The reaction of the audience shows that Don Camillo defeats the boxer.



to:

* TheAlibi: Peppone thinks that he killed Cagnola, so he asks Don Camillo to claim that he was with him at the time of the murder. Then Cagnola shows up, he thinks that he killed one of Peppone's comrades and he also asks Don Camillo to provide an alibi for him. Fortunately, nobody was killed.



* IHaveThisFriend: When Peppone thinks that he has killed Cagnola, he asks Don Camillo if he would accept to help an honest man who would have killed someone accidentally. Don Camillo immediately understands what is the matter and he asks Peppone who he has killed.

* CueTheRain: Don Camillo is carrying the cross of his church on his back on the mountainous way to his new village, which is a quite painful experience. Then it starts snowing.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Camillo goes back to Brescello to steal the church's cross in the hope that the Christ will talk to him again. The priest ends up struggling, having to carry the cross on the mountainous way to his new village, on his back in the same manner as the Christ during the Passion, though this time it's in cold and snowy weather. After this trial Camillo can hear the Christ again after weeks of silence.

The irony is not lost on the Christ, who Camillo can hear again after weeks of silence.

Added DiffLines:

* DangerouslyCloseShave: One of Peppone's men, a barber, brags that if Don Camillo ever had the nerve to cross his threshold, he would get one of those. When Don Camillo hears about it, he comes in to get shaved, and leaves unscathed.


* DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength: Camillo tries sitting on the crude chair inside his new presbytery, only for it to break under his weight, much to the annoyance of his new sacristan. The priest who used to sit on it was much less massive than he is.

* TapOnTheHead: Both Peppone and Cagnola (the landowner who refuses to give away lands of his to build a dike to stop the flood from the river Po) have come to see Camillo in his mountainous new home, and they end up fighting each other in it. Camillo then turns the crucifix's face against the wall (saying "Look the other way, Lord, before these savages!"), grabs a wooden log and knocks out both Peppone and the landowner to stop the fight.
