It is 3 a.m., and Floyd is asleep in his apartment, having a nightmare about Hattie. Suddenly, he is awakened by the sound of knocking at his door and learns that it is Linda. At first, Floyd thinks that something has happened to Hattie, but Linda eventually reveals that she's been driving around for hours with nowhere to go after being thrown out of the house by Hattie.
Linda further explains that her ex-husband, Lionel, has cut off all her credit cards so that she is forced to go back to him, but she refuses to give in. Finally, despite the modest size of Floyd's studio apartment, Linda convinces him to let her stay the night on his tiny couch.
