((Jack looks up to see Ennis trying to hide a grim expression... unsuccessfully.))

It ain't that bad... I'll be back up next month.

Jack:

((Jack strains to hear Ennis's last words.))

What's that, Ennis? Sumthin' bout a few months?

((Jack puffs up in indignation.))

Well... All I got to say about that is that a little forewarnin' woulda been nice... we sure had a lotta time ta talk about it.

((Wonders why Ennis is polishing his truck with his naked body before a disastrous thought comes to mind.))

%%Goddamn, 's not me he wants... it's the damn truck.%%

ENNIS [nervous, flushed, embarrassed. The conversation he'd been dreading]:

Look I'm awful sorry Jack.  I just have to work, is all.  You fergit what it's like, bein' broke all the time.

((  Scans for empathy in Jack's gaze; doesn't see much  ))

C'mon lighten up on me Jack.  Look at me, why doncha.  Just look.  I'm a fool for you, you know that.

((Jack remembers back to all the wild adventures he and Ennis had once shared: Ennis's spontaneous laughter; his serene and easy grin when he didn't think anyone was watching... then he thought of Ennis's islent agitation over the past few years.))
