YOUNG JACK:

((Surprised, smiles at Ennis.))

Friend, whiskey sounds real good. We got plenty.

((Before returning to base camp and the WLC delegation, the High Priestess has words with Miss Anke Spanky))

**I am looking to you to have more control over the Sacred Relics in future.  That E-Gay episode was just as I feared.  The next important Relic to appear is JACK'S FLATTENED HARMONICA.  See that you guard him well!!**

%% I'm surrounded by incompetents the efficiency-challenged...%%
 ::)

%% So she wants more security, hunh? Silly old hag. Had she been on set rather than foolin around with young guys and undergo useless beauty-treatments, all this wouldn't have happened!! %%

** Oh dearest High Priestess! I've heard your plea and took action immediately! I've brought you a nice safe to store your sacred stuff in:




... and a handsome young guy to guard it additionally. Hope everything will go smooth from now on! **  ;D

  • There's no reins on this one....
HEY WAIT, Lady, wait, get offa me ... we wasn't hardly... he ain't all abluted yet...

** Oh well, here I am, losin' control a my destiny again.  Not so sure I believe this Zurich story.  Am I gettin' re-sanctifated or relicized or sumpin'?  **

(( PLASTIC BAG muffles remaining muttering emanating from TERRY CLOTH.  ))



((Back at her chambers, the High Priestess tenderly frees TC from his plastic bag))

**Oh Terry, Terry, Terry.....

What shall I do with you--the most wayward, but perhaps the most beloved, of my Children...the only Children I can ever know in my position as *cough* Virgin High Priestess of the Brokeback Cult.  Do you remember how you used to cool my fevered brow after the devotional rigors of the Feast of the Consummation?  You were so sweet, so confiding.  And now it seems your only desire is to go out into the World and be parted from me.....*sigh*

My dear, I beg you for this favor.  Go to Zurich!   You are such a shining example of what heights a mere warshcloth can rise to.  You have talents the World must see!  Plus, they're offering a huge fee, and I promise, promise, promise that I'll use only a teensy weensy part of it to pay Madame Schwannstucker.

Here, I'll put you to soak in a lovely bath of lavender tinged with sage, and then I'll dry you with my personal hairblower.  It will be like old times..... :-*  :-* **

** Tell ya what, High Priestess? Before he cooled your fevered brow, he cooled
my feathered brow! And how!
Just thought, I should let ya know...**

**That's more like it!  It's about time you took real measures to protect my Sacred Relics.  But, my dear girl, please do make an appointment for that young man with Madame Schwannstucker for a makeover.   Perhaps the dermatologist, too, while you're at it.  And have him fit for a proper security guard uniform.  And then send him to me for...instruction.**

TERRY CLOTH:  

*** Yeah right, a High-fevered consummated virgin Priestess.  Miss Lady here is tryin' ta have it all, that's fer d*mn sure.  She even smartens up pretty scary.  I'm gonna end up wiping St. Bernard slobber if I get sent off ta the Alps.  I ain't bein' in no Dogdrool Mountain Terry-tory. **

Why, High Priestess of My Devotion, you flatter me with compliments thicker than your rouge.  But all the travelin' I'm gonna do is around that nest lookin' for the baby owl.  It's a sweet life right here.  And I'm too g*ddamn special to leave the family movie set.  So I'll stay right heeeee.............

(( TERRY CLOTH feels faint as the debilitating fumes of the bleach which the High Priestess has secretly put in his bath water take effect.  TERRY CLOTH loses consciousness and, again, tragically, control of his destiny.  SHEEP, CAST, and CREW -- with the possible exception of the baby owl -- again applaud.  ))

(( FSD hurries calmly onto set.))

**  In fact, plants have life-giving properties, and this one in particular elevates the level of chi in cast, crew, sacred relics, etc. **

(( FSD places plant near Terry Cloth, and the fresh piney scent restores him to consciousness. ))

Young Ennis:

((Dinner is over and Ennis is cleaning up the dishes while Jack is relieving himself in the river.))

%%Wish he would turn 'roun and I can see what I dream 'bout everynight..Oh no, he's coming back and he sees me lookin' at him down there flicking his belt buckle.%%

Uh, bud I couldn' help seein' that shiny belt buckle there.  Very impressive, huh.  Sure would like ta see you buckin' on that bull one day.
