"L" is lousy

In September of 2008, Annie Proulx admitted her frustration with all the lousy Brokeback Mountain fan fiction she's been sent by "countless people out there who think the story is open range to explore their fantasies and to correct what they see as an unbearably disappointing story."

"M" is monogamy

Jack's presence in Ennis' life, was a major* threat to the monogamy of Ennis' and Alma's marriage.

That's how "May" is spelled in Swedish   ;D

"N" is noplace

Using much more colorful terms, Jack arugued that their infrequent meetings over the years were unsatisfying and jejune, and Ennis felt that he was still nought and noplace.

"O" is obfuscations
« Reply #22633 on: August 22, 2012, 03:29:00 pm »
Ennis's obfuscations over the years failed to conceal the true nature of his relationship with Jack from Alma, who at last laid it on the line to him in November of 1977: "You didn't go up there to fish!"

In May of 1983, Jack was postively certain that he did not want to wait until November to see Jack again.

Ennis's and Alma's respective reproductive organs were functioning properly, and they became parents in September of 1964.

"S" is scuttled

Jack's "Sit down, you old son of a bitch!" effectively scuttled L.D.'s plan to march back to the TV and turn on the football game.

"T" is tearjerker

One of the tearjerker scenes in BBM, is when the postcard about the fishing trip in November comes back, stamped "deceased".   :'(

"U" is unenlightened

A religiously unenlightened Jack told Ennis that the Pentecost is when fellas like them march off to hell.

"W" is winch

At one November turkey dinner, L. D. decided to winch himself up off his ignorant ass and turn on the football game in contradiction to his son-in-law's command.
