ENNIS:

You did once . . .

((  Ennis remembers back to all the crazy neuroses he and Jack had once shared: the spontaneous attacks of paranoia, 'things' grabbin a hold of them when they didn't think anyone was watching . . . then he thought of Jack's suspicious lack of silent agitation over the past few years.  The result of some . . . therapy or something?!? 

He puts it all together.  Mexico was the place, he had read.  ))

You been to Mexico, Jack Twist?  Hunh?  Cause I done read in all them psychiatric journals what they got in Mexico for boys like you.

Jack

((Jack blinks.))

Hell yes, I been to Mexico.... and you'd be a helluva lot happier if you'd gone too.

((Jack turns away for a moment, looking at the lake.))

But ya seem ta have a problem with bein' happy.

JACK:

Well readin' journals aint the same as goin' down there....

((Jack pauses, uncertain if he should go on...))

Come on, Ennis, lets you and me get down there for a weekend or sumthin'... Hell, I can prolly get off a whole week if you want to stay down there that long.... and I think you'd be a world happier if ya'd just learn to relax a bit... We can go see that psychologist of mine together, you and me....

((Jack glances up at the taller Ennis with a long-forgotten look of hopefulness, more like his younger days.))

Whaddya say?

JACK:

((Before Ennis can respond, Ennis's last accusation registered for him.))

Hold on here.... cheatin?!?! That wasn't cheatin', that was sexual surrogacy counseling which I needed real bad after you'd gone and done that emotional flip-flop thing and totally screwed me over... err, umm, messed me up.... in the head I mean.

((Jack paces back and forth, agonizing in the small distance between his truck and Ennis's enticingly naked yet angry body.))

I mean.... what the hell was I supposed ta do? Just let you make a mockery of everything that I EVER wanted?

((Jack is becoming more agitated now and turns toward Ennis from near the lake.))

There I was, ready to offer my heart and soul to you and you had the nerve to just treat me like some kind of.... I don't know what you were doing, but it wasn't you..... It wasn't the Ennis I fell in love with.... All I have now, Ennis..... is Brokenarsed Mountain. It was the only goddamn real thing that ever happened to me....!   And for God's sake, MAN, GET SOME CLOTHES ON!!! I'm not gonna stand here and argue with a naked man.... it's uhhh.... Well I'm not sure exactly what it is, but it don't feel right to me.

The Empress of Everything

Maybe I should get my little ass over to The Performance Thread, and see what's going on.

Yer damned right it ain't the same as goin down there!  Ain't the same at all.

What, you just expect me to go gallavantin off with you to some whoreson bitch south o' the border?  S'that what you think, Jack?
And I gotta work.  Hunh?  I mean, in them earlier days I just quit the jobs.  I quit jobs — gave up everything, just to be with you!
((  fighting back tears  ))

All you got is Brokenarsed Mountain??  It's the biggest thing I ever had in my life too!  All I've ever had, and I gave it to you.  I got nothin else to give.
And every time I told you how I felt,
(( voice breaking )) you just ran the hell off on me.  Now I know where you ran the hell off to!

You wanna run off to Mexico?  Then why don't you?  Why don't you let me be, Jack?

It's because a you, Jack, that I'm like this.  I'm nothin, I'm nowhere — buck naked with psychiatric journals and car warsh signs...


((  Collapses in a tearful heap  ))
