"I've always had very peculiar taste in men."
The More I Know You is a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Work In Progress. It was originally broadcast in 1989.
A woman delivers a first person monologue:
- 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."
