The second episode of Queer As Folk, which aired on March 2nd, 1999.


Stuart pursues a client, Vince (not ‘out’ at work) is pursued by the new girl and Nathan, verging on obsession, is desperate to find Stuart again.


Nathan's mother Janice, separated from his father Roy, discovers her son's gay magazines whilst Nathan tells best friend Donna how he feels about Stuart. Vince is still in the closet at work and feels awkward when new employee Rosalie fancies him and asks him on a date, which he reluctantly attends. He is grateful for a call from Stuart and, claiming a family emergency, meets his friend for a drink. Nathan turns up and Stuart starts to find him obsessive as he has no desire to curb his promiscuity for him and, after arranging a date with another man, drives Nathan back to the boy's home.
