Scene 14

  • Ennis and the girls visit Alma at her grocery store job.
  • He says his boss called and needs him at the ranch.
  • So he drops the girls off with Alma in the middle of the store.
  • She is irritated that he's prioritizing his job over hers.
  • And one of the girls instantly knocks over an entire display of glass jars and breaks them.
  • Clean up in aisle four!
  • Meanwhile, Lureen and Jack have already had a baby boy.
  • Her parents don't seem to like Jack very much. Which we can tell by Lureen's dad calling Jack "rodeo." Hey, at least he's not a proctologist. The nicknames would be a lot worse.
