** This exchange in ''SYLS'':
-->'''Tom Danby:''' He stuck his finger in the end of your ''what''?! [[note]]The object in question was a gun, as pictured on the poster[[/note]]
-->'''Pa Danby:''' Would you shut up? Everybody'd be looking!


* MrSmith: Half the town in ''SYLG"' is convinced Garner's character is using an alias because he gave his name as Smith. According to the hotel owner half her tennants are using it as a fake name. It turns out to be his real name.

* DoubleEntendre: Subverted; when the Sheriff is trying to compliment Ms. Prudy, she thinks every word coming out of his mouth is a double entendre. Of course, the whore walking out of the whore house after it got blown to hell in the end plays it straight.

* LastSecondWordSwap: "..if someone's cra- ''willing'' to take the job.."
** Also Jake's previous job of "[[CurseCutShort shoveling horse--... working in the stables]]."

* TakeThat: The town brothel in ''SYLS'' is named after a Creator/WarnerBros executive with whom Garner had recently clashed.
** It coincidentally happens to be a PunnyName as well ("Madame Orr's House" [Whorehouse] )

* UnPaused: [=McCullough=] escapes a brawl at a restaurant by yelling "Hold it!" and quietly stepping to one side, taking his food with him. Once he's out of harm's way, he says "Okay, go ahead on!" and the brawl resumes exactly where it stopped.

* WhatTheHellHero: Parodied when [=McCullough=] announces he is considering [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere just skipping town]] instead of facing a massive gunfight, and Prudence replies, in total sincerity, that she thinks that's an excellent and highly mature idea.

Added DiffLines:

* HumanPackMule: As noted, Jake gets loaded down with all the equipment during his and the sheriff's (very unsuccessful) gold-mining expedition.


* GoLookAtTheDistraction: How Mayor Perkin clears out the unimportant hangers-on for the Sheriff's job-interview.

* LazyAlias: Parodied early in ''SYLG''. Half the town is convinced Garner's character is doing this based solely on the fact he gave his name as "Smith". While there is a CallBack to it later (three other people in his hotel alone are apparently using it as a fake name), it's just his name.

Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Smith uses a lot of the same lines on Jenny and Goldie, so this is his reaction when he sees them together comparing notes.


** The sheriff criticizes his love interest for actually shooting to kill. Also, despite the deaths the number of enemies is the same after the fight as before it, and the bodies disappear from where they fell.

Added DiffLines:

* EveryoneHasStandards: Everyone on all sides thinks that shooting up the town, threatening to shoot hostages, and so on in the final gunfight is just business as usual, but [=McCullough=] accidentally blowing up the whorehouse is just beyond the pale.


* ImprobableAimingSkills: Subverted, inverted, lampshaded and played straight. All in the same 30-second scene.

* CharacterDevelopment: At the start of the first film, Jake is something of a lout and a CowardlyLion with poor self-esteem, who wants nothing to do with a lawman's position because of the target it would paint on his back. Over time, he starts to embrace his new job as the sheriff's deputy and does his best to help his friends beat back the Danbys, every step of the way (in a rather surly fashion, of course). By the end of the movie, Jake feels pretty pleased with himself and proud of a job well done, hoping he becomes a legendary figure in western history.

* BaldOfAwesome: Creator/ChuckConnors, though he really doesn't do anything really awesome... he never even gets his boots off.


Three years later, more or less the same production crew and cast made ''Support Your Local Gunfighter'', which despite the carry-over and the name is not a sequel. This time around, Garner is con-artist Latigo Smith, who slips off a train in the jerkwater town of Purgatory and finds himself embroiled in the no-holds-barred race between two mining concerns to claim the local motherlode of gold. Again with the "help" of Elam's character Jug May, he finds the gold and gets the second girl (Suzanne Pleshette).
