While they are partners, he has a love/hate relationship with Nell and often argue on almost everything. Due to their history, Nell has a poor opinion of Eric though in all fairness, it seems that she is too harsh on him. But Eric does have quite the reputation of enjoying casual sex with beautiful women which has been a lifelong habit. As such, he is quick to notice when a gorgeous woman comes in with an impressive derriere and voluptuous curves. But the fly in the ointment is that Jean is pregnant and a good friend of his nemesis Nell. She will be moving into the apartment next to his own which is not that bad. Despite all that, he feels such a strong connection to Jean that he is almost obsessing about her. Eric brings his charming personality to bear and it is not long before he and Jean are up close and personal such that he is the one who she leans on when she goes to deliver her baby. He is increasingly finding himself doing things and in situations he never thought he would ever be in. He seems to have developed an urge to protect and help Jean and the baby who he now deems family.
