Scene 15

  • Ennis returns home, and finds he has a special delivery: a postcard from Jack.
  • Jack says he's coming through the area soon.
  • Ennis explains to his wife that he and Jack were fishing buddies.
  • He rushes to the post office and sends Jack a simple reply: "You bet."
  • Time to go fishing.
  • Ennis waits nervously for Jack, like someone waiting for a prom date.
  • After dinner, a red truck arrives, and Ennis rushes outside to greet Jack.
  • Ennis pushes Jack under the stairs where they can make out in private.
  • Well, not too private. Alma looks out the window and sees her husband making out with Jack.
  • This is not the kind of fishing she imagined.
  • Ennis introduces Jack to Alma.
  • He tells Alma they might not be back if they drink too much.
  • Uh-uh. Drink. Sure. Alma makes one last plea for them to all go to dinner together.
