- A brief montage shows us time passing.
- Ennis works on a ranch. Jack sells combines.
- In bed, Alma says she doesn't want to have sex without protection, because they can't afford another kid.
- Ennis uses this as an excuse not to have sex with her.
- "I'd have 'em if you'd support 'em," she responds.
- Boom. Cut to November 6, 1975, and their divorce.
- This is also the anniversary of Lincoln being elected president. A country united. A marriage divided.
- Alma gets custody of the girls. Ennis can be distant with them from a distance.
- What better way to celebrate a divorce than with a surprise fishing trip?
- Jack wants to help Ennis get his groove back, so he pays Ennis a surprise visit.
- But Ennis has the girls for the weekend.
- Jack thought Ennis sent news of the divorce because he wanted to be with him. Do they sell special postcards for news of divorce?
- Ennis apologizes for the confusion, but Jack is upset drives off in a huff. It's a lot of huff, because he has a long way to go back to Texas.
- Jack listens to more sad country-western music in the truck. This song is extra sad, even by country standards, and Jack cries.
- He stops in Juarez and walks into a dark alley with a prostituto—that's Spanish for male prostitute.
