First question: was Jack really Bobby's father? We doubt it, with Bobby talking such a strange accent and all.

Jack was really Bobby's father. But the accent thing was a problem. One day, Bobby noticed he and his daddy talked different. And no way to get it right with him after that.

2nd: why did Alma Junior's eye color change?

Contacts.

Quote
3rd: where was Ennis going to when he hurried out of the kitchen after revieving the first postcard? And what was he doing there?

He had had some, er, laundry to wring out.

Quote
4th: please tell us a little bit about the, uhm, you know (I'm a bit shy to mention it) ehm, the electric knife Monroe used at Thanksgiving.

All I know about it is that the prop master found it in the drawer of Alma's bedside table.

I must say that I'm very intrigued by your signature line: "It is green because you keep twisting it, it's an ancient skill, you keep twisting it and knocking it and twisting it until it is very elastic and light."

Sorry to miss this one earlier! I was, of course, discussing Green Destiny.

Hello Ang!

First of all, do you have a role for me in your next film?

Secondly, what is the pentecost?


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

I think we all agree that we are extremely grateful to Mr. Lee for his generous responses to our questions. 

Mr. Lee, when you have a moment more - I've read that you are warm and supportive to your actors before the filming starts, but once you are on set, you say very little to them, sometimes leaving them insecure as to how they are doing in your eyes.  Care to comment?

Ang, when Jack drives away leaving Ennis behind on the street in Signal, there is a truck parked across the street that look a lot like the one Ennis later drives to Lightning Flat. Is it?

Why don't Texans drink coffee?

As far as I know, they do. However, I've heard that residents of Massachusetts don't drink coffee.

Oh, sure they do, until their espresso maker dies. ...  ;)
