Wyatt visits his old friend John Shanssey's camp seeking the whereabouts of Mike Roarke, a top gun for Dave Rudabaugh's gang of train robbers. Doc Holliday saves Wyatt when one of Roarke's henchmen gets the drop on him, but refuses to help him locate Roarke because of his personal agenda. Meanwhile, Doc's wife Kate arrives at the camp determined to take him to a Colorado hospital so he can be treated for the deadly consumption that racks the gunslinging dentist's lungs. Earp stops Kate from kidnapping Doc in time for the two of them to confront Mike Roarke and his gang arriving at the camp. Doc takes out two members of the gang who draw and forces Roarke to allow Doc to "make amends" for Roarke's claim that Doc pulled the wrong tooth earlier. With his agenda settled, Doc leaves Roarke and his men to Earp. Written by

A lot of historical nonsense has been written about the friendship between Wyatt Earp and Doctor John H. Holliday. Doc has been called everything from a horsethief to a bloody-minded killer. Many people criticized Wyatt Earp for associating with Doc Holliday, but none of them knew how this friendship began.
