- Kornfield - reordering Maslow's hierarchy and a story of a destitute man in India who wants to talk about religion.
- Zak and Larry - security catches Zak drinking, Larry doesn't care.
- Larry and Joe - All Larry can do is withhold money. Larry as a role model. Neill's and Reich's philosophies of child rearing. Is Larry's lifestyle a rational decision. Comparing Larry's career to fellow actors. Substance abuse as the cause of his downfall.
- Kornfield - Loving kindness meditation in the forest. Keeping oneself from danger.
- Kristine McKenna and Joe - 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 in the end.
- Larry - a letter for a former participant in an affair lands him in trouble. Fantasies about leaving.
- David Rapkin - choosing an alternate live on a tiny boat.
- Larry and Joe - they fight over the cause of Larry's downfall.
- Joe argues it is due to his own failings and lack of self understanding.
- Larry is offended, argues that the Joe's case is bogus and a rationalization for class oppression.
- Kornfield - pleasure and pain are all a part of human experience.
- Woman - She lets a street guy use her bathroom, he won't leave - it's Larry!
- Kornfield - reads from Rilke's Letters to a Young Poet: "Being an artist means: not numbering and counting, but ripening like a tree, which doesn't force its sap, and stands confidently in the storms of spring, not afraid that afterward summer may not come. It does come."
