Terry is your typical high-strung, out-of-work and out gay NYC actor, but with roommate problems. Rather, he has a problem with his roommate's current boyfriend, Buck -- he has a huge crush on Buck, and it's killing him to watch Buck and Alex live out their happy relationship. The fact that Alex has another boyfriend -- Matt, currently on the road with a touring company -- exacerbates Terry's jealousy and anguish, and that this is all happening so close to Christmas is just the icing on the cake.
