Jack Twist:  My ol' man was a bullrider, pretty well knowed in his day, though he kept his secrets to himself. Never taught me a thing. Never once came to see me ride.

Someone, most likely their fathers, had taught Jack and Ennis how to shoot, and how to handle guns and cartridges.

"D" is dicey

Ennis realized that entering the tent that first night was a dicey proposition, but he didn't have to be taught how to pull off a great performance.

Jack complained to Ennis that [EXPLETIVE DELETED] Lureen refused to get any [EXPLETIVE DELETED] help for Bobby, who was in high school and could hardly read.

"G" is gibberish

Randall had learned not to try to make sense of the constant stream of gibberish his wife indulged in; rather, he let her go on like a blue streak.

Ennis threw Alma a red herring when he told her was going on fishing trips with Jack Twist, but it didn't take her long to learn that it was a fish tale.

No need to instruct Ennis on the ways of lovemaking; he just learned as he went along.
