In Riverton, Ennis and Alma live in a small apartment above a laundromat.

When Alma brings the postcard in, she sets it in a stack of circulars, next to some cookie cutters in a mixing bowl.

"N" is for note
« Reply #1172 on: April 28, 2006, 06:08:07 am »
Like the note Alma tied on the end of the fishing line in Ennis' creel case, saying 'Bring some fish, Love Alma'
But Ennis never found this note...

N is in this case also for newbie: I'm new to this board and new to this game. Hope I got everything right. If not, please let me know.

Hi, Penthesilea, and welcome to the ABCs of BBM. Just delete the "Re:" from the Subject line, and your post will be perfect. If you want, you can place the N is quotation marks--most people do--but that's optional.

If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me. The rules are spelled out in the original post. It seems you've already found the ABCs Answers Played file. Just remember to check there before posting since answers cannot repeat.

Jack told Ennis that he couldn't cook worth a damn but that he was pretty good with a can opener.

"P" is powder

Jack to Randall: "Ever notice how a woman'll powder her nose before a party starts, and then powder it again when the party's over? Why  your nose just to go home to bed?"

"Q" is quandary

In their last meeting, Jack pointed out that he and Ennis were in a quandary, or "a godamm bitch of an unsatisfactory situation."

"S" is SAC...

At the beginning of the film, Ennis jumps down from a semi with the letters "SAC" written on the door.  There are perhaps more letters that follow, and if anyone knows them, let me know, and I'll add them to my answer here.

There was a taboo against Jack and Ennis' relationship in the midwest in the 1960's.
