Default Tombstone, the movie

Has anyone sen this movie? I think it is a great flick but there is one question that I cannot find the answer to.

No, it isn't the meaning of the "huckleberry" line.

No it isn't the meaning of Doc's "that's funny" line (you know, the one at the end where he's looking at his feet)

The question I have is this: What does the word "lunger" mean?

I have searched and asked, but I can't find the answer. I thought it had something to do with Doc's Tuberculosis, but other characters are called this as well.

Does anyone know?

Isn't that a "loogey"? Or am I thinking of past tense? For example-"to have loogied."

From dictionary.com:

Main Entry: lung·er
Pronunciation: 'l&[ng]-&r
Function: noun
: one affected with a chronic disease of the lungs; especially : one who is tubercular

Don't know if that helps...I love that movie too.

That's funny. I went to dictionary.com and typed in "lunger" and got (drumroll please):

One who lunges.

Thanks Dcitionary.com!!!

Anyway...
Yeah I figured it had something to do with Doc's TB, but I think there is someone else in the movie who is called this. I can't remember who, though. Maybe Im just crazy...

Linus the only person who was called a Lunger in that movie was Doc. If i remember the bartender is talking to Ike Clanton and when Doc starts to cough up blood and Ike, who just lost a game to Doc says:
Ike: "Whats wrong with him?"
Bartender: "Lunger"
Ike: "Yeah well I hope he dies."

Then again with Ringo and Doc:
Ringo: "Don't any of you have the guts to play for blood?"
Doc: "I'm your huckleberry. That's just my game."
Ringo: "Alright Lunger, Draw."
Doc: "Say when."

And then again at the final show down between Ringo and Doc i think.

Sorry i'm a big Tombstone fanatic....one of the best movies ever

Thanks Jewscout. That really clears things up.

It really is one of the best movies of all time. My favorite part is when Wyatt Earp pistol whips that guy with his own gun...classic
