* CrowningMomentOfFunny:
-->'''Josey''': Seems when I get to likin' someone, they ain't around for long.
-->'''Lone Watie''': I notice when you get to dis-likin' someone, they ain't around for long neither.
** And:
-->'''Bounty Hunter''' (attempting to apprehend Josey): A man's gotta make a livin'.
-->'''Josey:''' Dyin' ain't much of a livin', boy.
** Another Example:
-->'''Josey:''' How's it on stains? ''[spits]''
*** In a blink-and-you'll-miss-it gag, the carpetbagger ''actually does'' use his product to get the stain out in a later scene.
** And of course, the "Missouri Boat Ride" scene.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Josey's confrontation with Ten Bears. The celebration at Blood Butte.
* TearJerker: "This boy was brought up in a time of blood and dying and never questioned a bit of it. He never turned his back on his folks or his kind. I rode with him... and I got no complaints. The blue bellies will give ya a better burial than I can, boy."
* TruthInTelevision: The fighting in Missouri during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar really was as savage as the film implies, and in more than a few cases was used as an excuse to address old arguments and rivalries that may not have even had anything to do with the causes of the war itself. In fact some parts of the Missouri/Kansas border area ''still'' maintain bitter animosity over the war to this day.
