Ann's apartment building landlady, Mrs. Brentano, has left Ann as the alternate to show the apartment for rent if she isn't around. That's why a handsome and suave stranger named Federico Gente, a famed Italian restaurateur, comes knocking on Ann's door. Ann would be happy to show him the apartment, but she's currently in the shower and her shower door is stuck, leaving her trapped inside her shower stall. Since Mrs. Brentano isn't around, Ann asks Federico for assistance in helping her get out, which he does. After Ann shows him the apartment, Federico decides to take it, seemingly in part because of his attraction to Ann. Federico knows about Don in Ann's life, which doesn't seem to matter. So when Federico caters a romantic meal for Ann and Donald after Ann burns what she was cooking, they have different reactions to Federico's gesture. Is Donald's assertion that Federico is coming on to Ann despite Donald being in the picture correct, or is Federico just being a kind neighbor? Written by
