...then you ask me about Mexico and tell me you'll kill me for needing somethin' I don't hardly never get.

You have no idea how strong my desire becomes! I'm not you. I can't survive on making love to you up here on the mountain once or twice a year! You are too much for me Ennis, you horrible person! I wish I knew how to leave you.

ROFL! for some reason that part cracked me up!  :laugh:
‘cause the truth is, I already give him everythin’ I got to give, more than I ever even knew I had; ‘n it all for him, all of it, him who is my brother, my father, my child, my friend, my lover, my heart, my soul; my Ennis.

They butchered this..

"Ennis: I figure we got a one-shot deal going on here.
Jack: It's nobody's business but ours.
Ennis: You know I ain't queer.
Jack: Neither am I."

What I'd really like to see is something on "Ennis decoded"--a line of Ennis dialogue along with our interpretations of what it means. For instance, what does "When you don't got nothin you don't need nothin" mean???  ???
May 2019 be better for us all.

Brandon I'm with you on that, and that wasn't even the interpretation, they just thought that was the actual line ROFL

My take on "when you don't got nothing you don't need nothing"...

someone who lives his whole life with very little is comfortable with very little... also, I think it can be said that "when you don't got nothing" is a reference to no longer having Jack, that makes the material things in life somewhat meaningless...

Jack, I have lived my entire life in Wyoming and, as a matter of fact, have not been much further than a 50 mile radius of Riverton.

Ennis:  "What I dont know, all them things I don't know....will get you killed if I should come to know them.."

In America sex is an obsession.  In other parts of the world it is a fact.

Uh, I've been puttin the blocks to a good-looking little gal in Riverton. A waitress. Says she wants to go to nursing school or sumpn' ...

I've been having sexual relations with an attractive young female cocktail server in my community, just to pass the time and give people the impression that I'm heterosexual. She has outlined her career plans but I didn't pay much attention.

Okay, I'll have a lash:  "Alma Jnr, when one has little in way of emotional and spiritual fulfilment in one's life and one has lost the love of ones life to murder...making unnecessary material purchases on the part of furnishing one's trailer would be making a statement that one's life is full when, really, one's heart is as empty as one's trailer."

I'm sorry, this deserves to be posted here, its hilarious!  :laugh:

Jack: Honestly, I didn't know we were going to be romantic partners again. Oh, that's a big lie! I knew it and I was speeding all the way and couldn't get here fast enough.

Got this one from the link posted down below...

ROFLMAO   :laugh:
