She has been living as a socialite back East while their daughter Rebecca (whom G.W. calls "Becky") (Stefanie Powers) is completing her college degree. He hires one of them, an attractive widow named Louise Warren (Yvonne De Carlo), as his cook and housekeeper. G.W. welcomes both her and her two children into his home, including grown son Dev (Patrick Wayne), who is handy with his fists, good with cattle, and is an excellent chess player, who had to leave Purdue University on account of his father's death. atherine (a.k.a. Katie), returns to the town of McLintock, seeking a divorce from G.W. He declines to give her one, having no idea why she has been so angry with him and why she moved out two years ago. Following a misunderstanding which leads to a Comanche subchief nearly being lynched by a hotheaded settler father who believes his daughter has been kidnapped, there is a gigantic brawl at the mud slide by one of McLintock's mines. Surprisingly, Katherine gets involved in the brawl, fighting on her estranged husband's behalf as she takes a quill from her hat and sticks It in one of the participants backsides. She attempts the same maneuver on G.W. However, this backfired as G.W. Inadvertently knocks Katherine down the mudslide, causing her to get muddy in the pool at the bottom. McClintock soon follows, knocking Katherine in the mud again, which she gets up and yells furiously at G.W. “You and your friends.” The fight eventually stops when “Running Buffalo” tells McClintock from the top of the mudslide “Whoooa Maclin, Whoooa, Marlin, good party, but no whiskey, we go home” as the Indians disperse from the area.
