Thank you for bumping this GREAT thread!!!!
sheyne (TS1!) and Pipedream, you are my favorites - although it is not fair to pick favorites, because every single post was terrific!
Ok, I´ll give it a try:

Ennis: "What?"

My dearest friend, if you have any questions as to my curriculum vitae, ask straight away, you don´t have to eyeball me with those babyblues...!

No more beans!

Ennis, I shall no longer accept the internal ossification resulting from the emotional disappointments  and frustrations which have afflicted my life to date. I renounce that unspoken policy of self-mortification, which has led to inner emotional poverty and borderline despair. I intend to  reopen my emotional well-springs, clear them of the detritus and debris which befoul the source and drink from that pure well until I am sated.

I will no longer eat poorly cooked vegetables which trigger  both self abnegation and anal outgassing to such an extent that the feline urine-scent of our portable mountain accomodation is completely masked .

Shoot that f**king elk and shoot it NOW.

ANNOUNCEMENT to those who were participating in a conversation about gender, sexual orientation and power previously on this thread. The conversation had gotten so OT for the Brokeback Slang thread and yet was so interesting that, with Meryl's permission, I started a new thread, with those posts, called Gender, sexual orientation and power. It's over on the Anything Goes forum. Here's the link:

http://bettermost.net/forum/index.php?topic=10861.0

Sorry for the inconvenience, and everyone please stop by there to continue that fascinating discussion!

I love this thread, I hadn't seen it before!  I don't know which I like more, the original lines or the Shakespeare-esque.

I hope I don't spoil it for everyone, but I couldn't resist:

1.  "You may be a sinner, but I ain't yet had the opportunity!" 

2.  "Well, mah dad said all rodeo cowboys are f**k-ups."

3.  Ennis, could ya wipe Alma Jr.'s nose?  To which Ennis replies:  "If ah had three hands, ah could!"

I must know every line by heart now.   ;)

This IS such a fun thread! It's an oldie, and I don't remember all 15 pages, so I'll have to go with lines I hope haven't already been used. So:

"I regret to inform you otherwise ... I'm afraid not ... No Sir, not on your coital existence!!!"
