What is the meaning of “I’m your huckleberry,” said by Doc Holliday in the 1993 movie Tombstone?
It was a pretty commonly used term in the South. There’s been a lot of discussion over the meaning ever since Val Kilmer uttered it in the film. Basically “I’m your huckleberry” means “Name the place, and I’ll go with you,” “Name the job and I can do it,” “I’ll oblige you” or “I’m your man.”
