Quotes

Trudy Trent: It's a palace of joy, this place, ain't it Marshal? You know how we spent last Christmas? He got drunk and set fire to me! Honest, if I hadn't run out in that snow, I would've burned up. And then he wouldn't let me back in and I near froze to death!
Asa Trent: [Lecherously touches Trudy's neck] Taught you to be a good little girl!
Trudy Trent: Oh yeah, Pa, it was the best Christmas I ever spent! I won't never forget it!

When Trudy runs away from home she happens to cross paths with Marshal Dillon and she asks him to help her to get away from her miserable father.

Dillon brings Trudy to Dodge only to find out that she has an obsessive crush on him.
