Jack Twist

Ennis Del Mar: We can get together... once in a while, way the hell out in the middle of nowhere, but...
Jack Twist: Once in a while? Every four fuckin' years?
Ennis Del Mar: If you can't fix it, Jack, you gotta stand it.

Basque: Thought you didn't eat soup.
Ennis Del Mar: Yeah, well I'm sick of beans.
