Scene 22

Scene 22

  • It's fishing trip time.
  • The men pitch a tent near the river. (An actual tent. Get your mind out of the gutter.)
  • Ennis asks Jack if Lureen suspects anything, but Jack says she doesn't.
  • Ennis says he gets a feeling that everyone looks at him suspiciously, like they know his secret.
  • Jack says he should move to Texas, a sacred bastion of gay rights if there ever was one. (Yeah, right.)
  • Ennis smarts off to him, and the fishing trip ends prematurely.
