"X" is xile
« Reply #1041 on: April 25, 2006, 09:41:58 am »
Ennis and Jack lived too long in xile from Brokeback Mountain.

"Ennis:  Tent don't look right.
Jack:  It ain't goin' nowhere. Let it be."  [movie]

When I was thinking about Ennis and Jack in exile,
The fixing the tent scene suddenly made sense to me.

Ennis was "nesting". 
I want this to be my home forever.

"Z" is zealousness

Ennis could hardly contain his zealousness as he waited for Jack to arrive in Riverton.

Sorry, Ray. See Round 14.

We need a replacement "Y".

I just would hate to see the answer list filled with nearly exact words save for the omission of a final "g": nothing, nothin'; castrating, castratin' -- I'm sure you all get the picture.

I think the issue here is not the omission of the final "g", but that the meaning and the spelling of the two words is entirely different.  One refers to a storm and the other refers to a place (with a capital L).  In the examples you gave, Fran, the words all had the same meaning, so you could extend that rule to words that are both past and present tense such as query and queried.

Nothing like a little high drama at the "ABC's of BBM".

I will change it, (even though I disagree) if that is the consensus.

"A" is asphyxiated

Jack said he nearly asphyxiated from the smell of the sheep that died in the lightnin' storm.

"Y" is York
« Reply #1047 on: April 25, 2006, 11:47:37 am »
Brokeback Mountain won three New York Film Critics Circle Awards: Best Actor (Heath Ledger), Best Director (Ang Lee), and Best Film.

This is a replacement "Y".

The next letter in the current round is "B".

"C" is caustic

Aguirre made some caustic remarks to Jack and Ennis, like when he said "You ranch stiffs, you ain't never no good".
