Synopsis Edit

Season 1Edit

Judith is first seen walking with Erica after she was fired, but leaves after some talking. After Erica's bad day, judith was invited at Erica's house for some dinner.[3]

The next day, Judith helps out Erica with her job search, and tells her that their friend Ethan is coming from montreal and should some whine, except that Judith is expecting. But she couldn't make it anyway.[4]

A few days later, Judith and Erica are preparing their high school reunion, when they meet up with their friend Katie. Judith and the rest then went to the reunion to catch up with everyone.

Judith goes to lunch with Erica, who just got out of her first day of her new job. She complains about her daunting task and slips in that she kissed Ethan. Judith is now intrigued, though more about how good the kiss was. Erica insists that it's more complicated than that. Judith disagrees and asks her to consider if she can see herself with Ethan, and that's the most important thing... after how good the kiss was on a scale from one to ten.[5]

A few days later, Judith is picking out items for her baby shower with Erica and her friends Alyson and Marie. After looking around through some stuff and pricey high chairs, Judith's phone rings. Erica is also shocked when she takes a look at the price tag herself. Marie explains that high chairs are pricey, but lets her know that "that's what godmother are for", looking pointedly at Erica. Erica is stunned, as Alyson then chides Marie that it was supposed to be a secret. Recovering, Erica assures them that she can just pretend she doesn't know.

Judith returns from her phone call telling them that she needs to go. Marie tells her that she still needs to put the items on the registry. Erica volunteers to do it so they can head off. She tells the sales girl to enter them in the registry, to change the delivery address to her apartment since she's hosting the baby shower, and to add the cute high chair to her bill. The sales girl remarks that she must be a really good friend. Erica tells her that she's going to be the godmother.

During the shower, everyone looks to be enjoying themselves, Erica explains to Judith which foods doesnt contain alcohol to harm the baby.

After that Judith started opening up presents, one present was a shirt that says made in vagina. Judith thought it was from Erica but she says its Jenny's.

Erica actually bought her the high chair. Judith is overwhelmed, but Alyson and Marie are not looking awkward. Marie explains that they bought the high-tech high chair because they're both going to be the godmother. Erica is clearly upset, but says it's not a problem and that she can always get a refund. She rushes back to her bedroom to saying she needs to make sure she still has the receipt.

Judith excuses herself to go in after her. Though she denies it, Judith knows Erica is upset. Erica remarks that Alyson and Marie are obviously godmother material. Judith sees why she's upset now, and tells her she put a lot of thought into her decision. Erica verbally agrees and she's more of the "wacky aunt" type. Jenny walks in to remind them that there's still a party going on. Erica reassures them that she's okay and she'll be bringing the cake out soon. Judith heads out to rejoin the party. A bit more relieved, Erica brings out the cake. Before they cut though, Judith toasts Erica for the great party and that she'll be a great wacky aunt for her child. Just then, Jenny faints and asks her to take her home.

As they arive at Jenny's house, Jenny tells Erica that she faked the scene and tells her that they should have fun. Erica refuses, Jenny steals her purse and runs off making Erica go after her into an karaokebar. The two girls sing there for awhile when Josh spots them and videotapes them. He calls Sam and shows her the tape with Judith then also sees. Judith calls Erica and they fight on the phone for awhile and Judith hangs up.

The next day, Erica goes to Judith's house to make up with her, and they do.[6]

After preparations the wedding begins.[7]

During Erica's session, Judith went to a party with Erica, Jenny and Cassidy. Cassidy is talking to some other guest, while Judith and Jenny wonder why Erica didn't tell her about her intimate moment with Cassidy(because they heard it from Ethan instead of Erica) Judith asks if she's afraid that they wont accept her life, Jenny didn't think it was such a big suprise because she already noticed. She loudly exclaims that she is not gay. They do not take her seriously though, so Erica stalks off.
