((Ennis kicks at the pebbles on the gravel driveway.  Hard.))

%%Son of a bitch.%%

((Another white pick-up truck drives down the main road in the distance.))

%%Just as well.%%

((Ennis feels like someone is pulling out his guts hand over hand.  He puts his right hand to his stomach and shuffles back to the girls in the truck, shoulders dropped, eyes on his boots.  Alma, Jr. leans forward and asks him "You all right, Daddy?"))

ENNIS:  I'm fine, little darlin'.

((Something seizes Ennis.  He staggers backwards a step.  Alma, Jr. says "Daddy?"  He stops.  Steels himself.  Lifts his head and resolutely steps back to the door, opens it, slides in next to Jenny.))

ENNIS:  So how about that ice cream?

No more beans!

Why do we consume what we consume?
Why do we believe what we believe?
Why do we accept what we accept?
You have a body, a mind, and a soul.... You have a responsibility.

((From her high altitude retreat, the HIGH PRIESTESS gazes on the comings and goings of the BrokenArsian clan))




** I must say, things have taken a decidedly more interesting turn.  Not only has JACK continued his destined arc despite the temptation laid at his feet by the wayward ENNIS, it's clearly left him speechless--a first for JACK TWIST! **

((Ennis kicks at the pebbles on the gravel driveway.  Hard.))

** Oh, bravo, ENNIS!  This bodes well.  I think I'd best start getting in character for la gran scena Mexicana! **

MONROE:

((Is finally released from his swirling vortex of alternate reality and sent tumbling back to earth))


SPLAT!!!


((Dizzy, dazed, disoriented))

** How long have I been gone? What's been happening? Has the real me been gone, or just the alternate reality me? Am I bizarro Monroe or just plain old in-love-with-Alma and closeted-gourmet Monroe? How can I ever be sure? What a mess!! **

(( Stares at the surroundings, noticing Riverton in the distance ))

%% What if I've been gone for a long, long time - what if ALMA's married someone else? What if she's grown old? What if everyone I know are dead and buried %%

(( Spinning around himself in worried panic ))

** Gotta get back home and find out the worst at once! **

((Runs off))

MONROE:

(( Tentatively walks up the steps to his own porch, noticing various nice potted flowers ))

%% I never put those there. I don't think I did. How strange! %%

(( Opens the door and walks into the hallway. Through the open door to the living room notices a picture on the wall: ))



AAAuuuuuugggggggghhhhhhhhh!!!!

** Did I get married while I wasn't here? Was it another me who got married? How many of us are there? **

(( Looks around tentativley ))

Uhm.... Angel Honey, I'm home! Or....uhm, am I possibly here with you already?

JACK:

**Um, Miss Director, Ma'am.... I don't really feel like havin' male companionship right now. Would it be possible to get a Mexican psychotherapist instead of a prostitute?**
