Glad you started this, because I DO love LaShawn! Well, I like her anyway. I especially like the way she says, "Well, sisters or not, Lureen, looks like you and I are going to have to dance with ourselves, cause our husbands ain't got a smidgen of rhythm between 'em!" (Or whatever -- I'm going from memory.) She says it in such a cute Southern-belle way, it makes no sense (how would she know this about Jack?) and yet it's freighted with subtle meaning.

So true, Katherine.

I love LaShawn because she gets to dance with Jack.

I love LaShawn because she makes me smile at a point where the story just grows darker and darker and sadder and sadder.  :)

I like LaShawn because she can talk a blue streak, I'm surprised Jack didn't tell her to quit her yammering while he was dancing with her....She sure is a lively little gal.

I like the way she pronounces "bailing wire" and how her voice gets breathy when she says when it comes to shopping "I got no resistance!"

Hmm, what if Jack and Ennis had had "no resistance"?

I love the way LaShawn says, "We come here thinkin' it's all still big hats and Marlboros - boy, are we behind the times!"

"We just may have to dance with ourselves Lureen - our husbands ain't the least bit interested in dancin' - ain't got a smidgen of rhythm between 'em..."

I love this line, too, Eric, though my favorite part is that sentence that just preceeds it: "Well, even if we aren't sorority sisters ..." It makes me love LaShawn because I gather (not being a sorority sister myself, but from context) that Lureen has just put LaShawn down. But LaShawn rebounds nicely.
