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???  ???

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."

Yeah well try this, an I'll say it just once:

Screenplay:
"I doubt there's a filly that could throw me! Let's get, n'less you wanna sit around tyin knots all day."

Decoded:

Ennis, my sun, my moon, my love - (bolded dialogue is optional), do not fear for my safety, for I am much accomplished at staying a-horse when my mount is skittish, for I am a rodeo cowboy.  May I suggest we attend to our task at hand, now?  For though you have demonstrated skill at securing our foodstuffs, implements and utensils with rope, I feel we should leave and head up the mountain to start work.

This thread could be one to rival the malaysian subtitles!!

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.

ROFL! That interpreation just makes me think of jack in extremely camp mode... I'm a little teapot and all that!!

"It must be all yer time a'horseback that makes it so good."

Ennis, my sun, my moon, my love, you are a talented and exquisite lover. The fact that you keep yourself in excellent physical condition through horseback riding must be part of the reason.

I am having a moment of communion with a creative higher being, expressing my gratitude that you neglected to bring along your air-current activated tonal musical device.

I...am...a...robot.

LOL Henrypie! You have had me in fits of giggles for the past 5 minutes at that! I especially love the, "expressing my gratitude that you neglected to bring along your air-current activated tonal musical device."

Toodles, I am off to go play myself a "air-current activated tonal musical device" :laugh:

Hilarious, Sarah!

Perhaps you have transgressed, but for my own part I am still awaiting a sufficiently tempting offer. ;)

You would like a mug of something hot and caffeinated, wouldn't you?  And perhaps a slice of scantily fruited dessert?
