* MisplacedRetribution: The murder of Morgan by the Cowboy gang makes Wyatt swear to kill any member of them he finds. This includes Cowboys he may never have even met and who did nothing to him personally.

** Curly Bill Brocius only became leader of the Cowboys after the death of Old Man Clanton. Clanton, who frequently led the gang into Mexico to rustle cattle, was driving a herd back into Arizona and was attacked a mile south of the border on August 12, 1881. Clanton and all but two of the men with him were killed. The Clanton Gang's activities were causing major diplomatic problems, and the US Government had promised their Mexican counterparts, who were threatening a military response, that it would be taken care of. Wyatt Earp was and is widely believed to have been one of shooters, acting on behalf of the US Marshals Service. Warren Earp and Doc Holliday are also believed to have been there, and the fact that Warren missed the OK Corral because he was recovering from a previous gunshot wound lends credence to the story. [[CaptainObvious This did not exactly help relations between the Earps and the Cowboys.]]
** Milt Joyce of the Oriental Saloon was no friend of the Earps. The altercation in the saloon was actually between Johnny Tyler and Doc Holliday, and escalated into Doc and Joyce shooting at eachother. Joyce and Sheriff Behan tried to frame Doc for a double murder committed by Cowboys a few months later.
** Doc's relationship with Big Nose Kate was pretty toxic and had already ended by the time of the OK Corral fight. Kate had long since left town.

* GoodBadGirl: Josephine. As she puts it:
--> '''Josephine:''' ''(To Wyatt, cheerily)'' Oh, I know. Don't say it: I'm rotten. I tried to be good. It's just so ''boring''.
--> '''Wyatt:''' ''(Awed)'' The way you talk...
--> '''Josephine:''' Never heard a woman talk like that?
--> '''Wyatt:''' ...Never.
--> '''Josephine:''' I don't have ''time'' to be [[ProperLady "proper"]]. I'm a woman, I like men. If that means I'm not "ladylike", then I guess I'm just not a lady. [[AtLeastIAdmitIt At least I'm honest.]]
--> '''Wyatt:''' You're ''different''...there's no arguing that. [[SpiritedYoungLady But you're a lady, all right.]] I'll take my oath on it.
