What Do Women Want?
"What Do Women Want" is the name of a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series The Other Side (series).
- Debi and Malcolm go to a party, discuss love and buy a tree from a tree peddler. Symbolic love tree. Malcolm is still with his wife. Darkness and light. Ecstasy.
- Larry - a new hiding place for liquor
- Debi - Malcolm's cars. They meet people on the road who chronicle those who enjoy life, plan a photographic trip to Los Vegas. Joe questions the metaphysical interpretation of the claim that people respond to the couple in public.
- Larry - He drops a psychiatrist who insists that Larry is an alcoholic. What do people who don't drink do when they are unhappy?
- Debi - Buying clothes for a rave. A woman in the bar talks about witnessing sex in a bar.
- Kornfield, speaking to children - King Arthur drinks from the well of a Hag, offers her marriage to one of his knights in repayment. She poses a riddle, "what do women want?" She is half freed from a curse is beautiful for half the day, asks her husband whether she should be beautiful in the day or at night.
- Larry and Joe - Joe thinks most people are really unhappy. God as liquor. The weakness of people's faith becomes obvious in a crisis, when they face death.
- Kornfield - Does god exist?
- Larry - His therapist refuses to give him drugs. Story of his father's death on vacation in Lake Cuomo. Drawing a Jewish star with an eyebrow pencil so the body won't be given Catholic rites. His widowed mother cries in hotel lobbies, is asked to leave. Failure is a necessary part of our system.
- Kornfield - respecting forest things
- Debi - she's afraid of intimacy. Malcolm's teenage kids plan to visit. He's moved in with her for good, is bringing his cat. Joe probes her feelings about the situation.
- Kornfield - Don't know mind.
- Debi and Malcolm's combined answering machine message.

This is one of my absolute favorites. I really love the story Kornfield tells, he seems like he has a good way with children. Does anyone know as to where the music at the end comes from? I can't get it out of my mind. I know it's a reoccurring song from other works during this period but I just love it.
