"ou got a extra blanket?" inquired Ennis, shortly before he was moaning in the heat of the night.

ummier and healthier as it may have been, Lureen still decided to not breastfeed neonate Bobby, but instead accept the two boxes of formula.

anking Jack's chain about controlling the weather, Aguirre was unaware of the odoriferosity of the 42 zapped sheep.

I'll be away for about ten days on a non-odoriferous vacation!

oung and desperate, Jack tried to hit on a rodeo clown in a bar, but was cruelly rectified.

earning to be with Jack, Ennis made it clear to Alma that he would rather watch TV on a Saturday night than socialize with the fire-and-brimstone crowd.

Have a very sweet-smelling vacation.

"T" is taps

"ep, it's no coincidence that all critical roads to Brokeback Mountain seem to go through Red River. Of all the potentially gay cowboys populating Hollywood westerns (i.e. close-knit buddies Butch and Sundance, the cast of Johnny Guitar), Clift is the most obvious by virtue of his now un-closeted biography as well as the smoldering glares he exchanges with Ireland before Ireland essentially disappears from the story. It's a quick way to point out that regardless of all the blather about Brokeback Mountain being 'revolutionary,' the emotions it taps have been there all along. It's also, paradoxically, an easy way to underline why Brokeback Mountain earns the accolade 'groundbreaking': Heath Ledger's Ennis Del Mar and Jake Gyllenhaal's Jack Twist don't have to exchange pleasantries about their guns in place of acting on their feelings."

"U" is unseated

"ee-haw!" Jack hollered, vividly describing to an amused Ennis the reason for the life of a rodeo cowboy - the excitement of trying to keep from being unseated.

"ou'll wish you never tried!" Jack shouted over the roaring hailstorm, when Ennis wanted to go up to the sheep, knowing they would act whimsically in the frightening weather.

Round 946!

Round 946!

At last, we arrive at the letter "Z".

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

"Alma, this is Jack Twist, Jack, my wife Alma." His chest
was heaving. He could smell Jack -- the intensely familiar
odor of cigarettes, musky sweat and a faint sweetness
like grass, and with it the rushing cold of the mountains.

Jack's cigarettes are going to assist us
with this round, so please be sure to include
the following symbol at the beginning of your post:
