Set-Up: Wyatt Earp and his men, including Doc Holliday who is suffering from tuberculosis, are taking on the criminals who have a stranglehold on the town of Tombstone in the 1880’s. Wyatt has just taken down a group of them, almost singlehandedly, and his men are talking afterward.
Line(s): Jack: Doc, you ought to be in bed. What are you doing out here?
Doc: Wyatt Earp is my friend.
Jack: Hell, I got lots of friends.
Doc: I don’t.
If you are fortunate to have a friend who is that loyal to you, respect him and give that friendship everything that you’ve got because a friend like this is worth a 1,000 acquaintances. Who is your Doc Holliday?
