  • I lost myself to him.
** Um, not yet, Ms. Moon. We got the rest of the evenin' then the moon can come up. Alright, darlin'?**

YOUNG JACK:

((chuckles to himself and grins up at Ennis))

Can't pull the wool over yer eyes, can I, Ennis? Yer right, that mare got lucky, tossed me 'bout 20 feet. I bet if you'd been there you could have handled her... You've got those firm hands of yours... %% that I want all over my body %% 'Twas good I landed in the brush, even though I did get scratched up a little.

Here, whit yer whistle and I'll see if I can dredge up some other entertainmen' since the harmonica aint soundin' right.
((tosses WHISKEY BOTTLE to ENNIS))

YOUNG JACK:

((As Ennis takes a swig from the whiskey bottle, gets up from the fire and moves a little away. The orchestra begins to play the musical dumbass mule's song again.))

**Tonight, tonight,
won't be a reg'lar night.
Tonight we'll have a feast by the fire.**

((looks wistfully over at Ennis, who is still preoccupied by the tent))

** She'll never recognise me now!!**

** But where's my man Terry? She might be using him to warsh her unmentionables!! TERRY!!!!**

((Calls into the echoey silence...))

**TEEEEEEEEEERRY!!!!**


TERRY CLOTH:

** JBB, my darlin' little Tiddley-Pom friend, I'm alright, I'm alright... over here in the sheep-pee drenched bushes.  No worries, the HIGHLY UNMENTIONABLE PRIESTESS' army didn't get me and neither that dancin' elk nor those flirtin' equines done stepped on me yet.

** After we got separated on our goop trail, I headed down by the stream to see if I could find you, and I got held up by Walter... you know Walter...     





Scene 20.b  -  Walter Walkin’ Jesus








** Walter, that new guy who the Continuity Director says is gonna be in Scene 20.b.  Needed me to dry off the bottoms of his feet after his rehearsal.  Anyway, get'cher Tiddley-Pommey self outta the Sheep Wrangler's palms and let's head up to that not-gonna-look-right-tent.... I'll race you there!  **

(( Hears the music and starts twirling around))


                                  **Tonight, tonight

                               And the sheep can be damned
                                      to hellfire.

(( Looks back at Jack for encouragement))

**Umm... OK, so someone alerted me that y'all are needing a sunset around here.  So, here we go.  Don't laugh and point at me if I'm jumping in at the wrong time again.**

YOUNG JACK and ENNIS together:

((still singing along with the orchestra))

** Today the hours went by slowly.
But now the sun is falling and soon the moon will rise.
((YOUNG JACK winks at Ms. Moon))
Oh moon, shine bright.
And make this endless day into night.
Tonight**

((YOUNG JACK and ENNIS look at each other across the campfire... still uncertain of what is going to happen tonight.))

I assume it's O.K. if a goddamned string of saliva hates every show you're using for songs...YUK!!!!!

Pauline Kael wrote 11 damning pages about WSS in the New yoriker, but it didn't do any good...

  • There's no reins on this one....
((The orchestra performs a sweeping modulation into the moody, tight rhythms of the B section))

HIGH PRIESTESS:



** The Head Gal’s gonna have her way--tonight,
She’ll make that slipp’ry Warshcloth pay--tonight!
He whines that Ennis needs him.  Bull. Shit.
It isn’t in the screenplay—he’s adding a bit! **

(( Refusing to B modulated, moody TERRY CLOTH thinks of tight ... um ... rhythms .... and sings ... ))

**  Tonight, tonight,
      the tent won't look quite right.
      And tonight there'll be no rough skin.

     Tonight, tonight,
     I'll caress my friends tonight
     And warsh away their first-chance sin.

     Tonight...  **
