Ennis worried a hangnail in apprehension as he broached the subject with Jack about having to delay their meeting in August.

After riding up in July, Aguirre was curious about Jack and Ennis's behavior and leeringly spied on them.

"F" is functions

The functions of a rodeo clown, sometimes wearing Auguste style makeup, are to protect high-flying cowboys from injury by distracting the bulls and, to a lesser extent, to entertain the audience.

Ennis's confession that he couldn't meet in August gummed up Jack's plans big time.
