* The single scene that Wild Bill Hickok (played by Keith Carradine) and Al Swearengen (played by Ian McShane) share in the entire series, early in the first season. For context, Hickok has been asked by Alma Garrett to investigate whether Al Swearengen has something to do with her husband's death, and then later asks him to investigate why EB is so interested in buying back her claim on the gold patch that her husband had bought before his murder (spoiler: it's so Al can make a profit on nothing). The following exchange might be the only time that Al Swearengen, the ManipulativeBastard that he is, is legitimately ''afraid''.
--> '''Hickok:''' This man Garrett who fell off the rocks...
--> '''Al:''' (feigning innocence) The eastern dude?
--> '''Hickok:''' His widow's had an offer on his claim from that innkeeper sitting in the corner. And she's reluctant to sell, 'till she understands what's behind it.
--> '''Al:''' Why have you asked me?
--> '''Hickok:''' ''She believes you'd know.''

* Sheriff Seth Bullock, breaking up the tarring of a black man who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. After the victim screamed out "Motherfucker" at the racist posse leader Steve, he refuses to listen to Bullock's order to let the man go, adding "Did you hear this monkey just mother-fucked me?!" Bullock cocks his revolver and draws on Steves face as he replies "I'll mother fuck you, and, blow your head off."

** Also sort of doubles as a CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming, since it shows that Al cares enough about Merrick to comfort him when he's in dispair, [[CruelToBeKind even if it does involve hitting him]]
* Al's beating the crap out of [[PsychoForHire Hearst's head Pinkerton]] who shot at Alma

** If you round down, this may be literally true. Starting from 47:55 to the closing credits at 53:35, we get: "God is not mocked you son of a bitch."; Mr. Wu's takeover; Wolcott's suicide; Dan Dority makes his peace with Adams; "Wu! America!"; Jen groping a shocked Merrick; Ellsworth dancing with Sofia, Sol with Trixie, Charlie with Jane and Joanie, Doc with Jewel - heck, the entire town dancing in the streets, happy and free of the world's worries for at least one night ("Hey! We ain't done fuckin' dancing!"). That may or may not be more than most series' runs, but this troper alternately cheered, grinned, and wept manly tears over that final 5:40.
