Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: McClintock cautioning the settlers. They don't take kindly to him telling them their journey was worthless. But as he says "God made that land for the buffalo. It serves pretty well for cattle. But it hates the plow! And even the government should know you can't farm six thousand feet above sea level!"

* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: if this movie has the look and feel of a Creator/JohnFord production... it's because it uses a lot of Ford's ProductionPosse in the cast and crew.

* TurnTheOtherFist: GW is sore at the guy who nearly got an innocent Commanche lynched when he baselessly accused the local tribe of kidnapping his daughter (she was actually spending some time with her boyfriend). On top of this, the same guy repeatedly jabbed GW in the gut with a shotgun when he tried to intervene. Once the situation has been diffused, GW grabs the gun away, [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech gives him a verbal dressing down]], and remarks that ''someone'' oughta belt him for the trouble he caused.

* DeterminedHomesteadersWife: Katie started out as this, then she became a stuffy RichBitch. G. W. decides to give Becky a small homestead instead of his entire estate as an inheritance because he believes the homesteading experience will help her and her future husband build character.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Becky demands that her father shoot Dev for the latter's wild driving and for characterizing her as a trollop. To Becky's shock, G. W. ''does'' shoot Dev...with a blank cartridge. Dev decides to spank her in retaliation.
* EpicFail: Katherine probably expected to last the big brawl KickingAssInAllHerFinery. She probably did ''not'' expect to end up tumbling down into the mud pit when the latest guy she pokes inadvertently knocks her back....

** When Douglas scoffs at this, Tiny Mouse pointedly reminds him that 20 years ago, ''he'' thought so too.
* InjunCountry: Actually the Indians were fighting to ''stay'' in one particular part of the country, unfortunately [[IdiotBall Cuthbert H. Humphrey]] had other ideas.
