- Kristine McKenna begins reading an endorsement, Joe stops her and asks questions instead, she praises Kornfield, reads a poem.
- Kornfield: an old man plants an olive tree, "don't know mind."
- Joe and Kristine discuss a recent trip he made to the emergency room suffering from internal bleeding; human kindness, connecting emotionally with people; leaving the hospital and immediately returning to old habits and the drive for sex and combat.
- Kornfield: what matters at the end, ulcer poetry.
- Larry and Joe: Larry is fancy free, interacting with Chassids in Central Park while shirtless and wearing farmer pants, realizing one's arm is a man's arm. Sex while wearing phylacteries, on the Torah.
- Kornfield: the Minyan; sacred community.
- Larry and Joe: dignified suicide, driving into a stanchion at high speed, a coordinated cross country suicide game of chicken after having taking out life insurance policies. David Rapkin suggests a suicide in which they both drive across the country while talking on mobile phones and crash in the middle.
