The L Word

Erin's new boyfriend, Duncan, flies into town from Toronto. They playfully flirt on the couch at Erin's apartment when Whitney walks in. After a brief introduction, Whitney tells them that she will give the two alone time and gets out of their way. Erin and Whitney grab breakfast at The Smith in the East Village while Duncan is asleep. Whitney shares that she is grateful yet apologetic that Erin has let her stay in her apartment.
