Scene 11

Scene 11

  • Jack drives his rattletrap truck to Aguirre's office. What time is it? It's sheep time.
  • Aguirre says he "ain't got no work" for Jack.
  • Jack asks if Ennis has been around.
  • Aguirre says he wasn't paying Jack and Ennis to "stem the rose" while the dogs watched the sheep. We thought they were sheepherders, not florists…
  • This is what today we call "discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation."
