"I've always have very peculiar taste in men."

The More I Know You is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Work In Progress. It was originally broadcast in 1989.

Synopsis

A woman delivers a third person monologue against music:

  • Falling for outcasts. A relationship with a sophisticated, "eastern" 12 year old which continues into high school. He falls for someone else, and she is happy for him.
  • Going to school in Italy, meeting an anesthesiologist at a dance club. Feelings free to say anything in another language. The man goes nuts over a traffic incident, pulls a knife.

A woman offers a second person address to her violent ex:

  • thrown coffee, being threatened with an antique gun, getting married three weeks after meeting.
  • She caught you cheating, felt bad about being suspicious.

More second person monologues from several actresses:

  • A woman is furious that you've been stalking her, broken her window pane.
  • Another woman calls to you playfully from under the mistletoe.
  • Repeatedly addressing a sexual failing (impotence, presumably): she comforts you, praises sex without coitus, later becomes more angry and upset, is furious with you, sends you away.
  • A scene with sound effects: a woman complains about the way you brush you teeth in several different ways, becoming more angry each time.
  • "The more I know you. . . the more I despise you."
  • A woman admonishes you to pay attention.
  • "Don't you dare talk to me like that."
