  • Joe: back at the psychiatrist; Kate wants to see Joe torn to pieces; carrying the past with us. New age teaching that the past is irrelevant. More on the relationship as a baby. A list of nice things to do every day. Smiling while unhappy.
  • Jack Kornfield: gods disguised as a dove and a hawk test a wise king.
  • Larry Block: a romantic relationship with the bicycle riding older woman down the hall is discovered by his daughter. The family plans for a breakup which never happens.
  • Joe: silly new age teachings at Science of Mind Church, would be Hollywood types, LA as a den of poseurs.
  • Kornfield: right speech, the power of words. A prince is asked to give up his children.
  • Larry: taking LSD and watching a new age speaker Eric Butterworth say that you can change you life by changing your thoughts. The futility of talking therapy. Larry critiques Kornfield.
  • Joe: Joe asks the audience why they're listening. He joins Kate for dinner while exhausted, she picks on a Korean couple. He visits her house later. They drive to Mt. Wilson. They argue about sex. Kate attacks Joe.
  • Kornfield: a teacher slaps a student who is hung up on a past relationship.
