treme care was taken by Ennis, throughout his life, to minimalize the risk that he was found out being homosexual.

"N" is navigators

iting their boyhood years and on the cusp of becoming young men and how manhood was defined for the time and place, Ennis and Jack were learning how to be navigators of their sometimes harsh and hostile environment.

T:  WYOMING MOUNTAINS:  DAY:  1978:

Washing tin plates.

JACK is a little thicker around the haunch.

                              JACK
               All I'm sayin' is, what's the point to
               makin' it?  If the taxes don't get it, the
               inflation eats it all up.  You should see
               Lureen, punchin' numbers into her adding
               machine, huntin' for extra zeros, her
               eyes gettin' smaller and smaller, it's
               like watchin' a rabbit tryin' to squeeze
               into a snakehole with a coyote on its
               tail.

                              ENNIS
               High-class entertainment.

                              JACK
               For what it's worth.

                              ENNIS
               Lureen.  You and her, it's normal and all?

                              JACK
               Sure.

                              ENNIS
               And she don't ever suspect?

JACK shakes his head no.

                              ENNIS (CONT'D)
               You ever get the feelin', I don't know,
               when you're in town, and someone looks at
               you, suspicious... like he knows.  And then
               everyone, lookin' at you, and maybe they
               all know too?

                              JACK
               Maybe it's time you moved outta there.
               You know, set yourself up somewhere
               different.  Maybe Texas.

"P" is pig-headedness
« Reply #22513 on: April 13, 2012, 09:42:31 pm »
treme pig-headedness on the part of Jack's father was the reason that Ennis couldn't bury Jack's ashes on Brokeback.

cept for the unwanted visits by Aguirre, Brokeback Mountain was pretty much their own realm.

"T" is traffickers

asperated by Ennis's unavailabilty, Jack felt compelled to make visits to Mexico, where traffickers in the sex trade abounded.

"U" is usurpation

cessively dominant behaviour was the reason for LD's attempted usurpation of control over Bobby's tv habits.

xcited shouts replaced Jack's grumbling about beans once Ennis shot them a wapiti for dinner, as long as the Game & Fish didn't catch 'em with it!

Round 945!

The letter "Y" is next.

Each post will begin with a word that starts
with the letter "Y" and include an unplayed word.


"Last one in...!" shouted Ennis as he
and Jack raced to the edge of the cliff.

The water they landed in is going to assist us
with this round, so please be sure to include
