Season 1[]

Baxter stops Atlantic County Treasurer Nucky Thompson in the hotel lobby and introduces Claudia. Nucky is eager to leave but wishes them well and suggests they take in the attractions. Claudia tells Baxter she wants to go roller-skating. After Nucky leaves she is impressed with Baxter's connections.

Claudia and Baxter encounter Nucky again while they are getting a push chair ride along the boardwalk. Claudia goes to buy salt water taffy. When she returns, Nucky tells Claudia that she is perfect for a beauty contest he is planning and that Baxter will be one of the judges.

In their hotel room Baxter makes further sexual advances on Claudia and she again rejects him. She threatens to scream if he continues. He decides to drive her home to Baltimore, annoyed at the money he has spent on her.

In his car Baxter complains that the trip to Atlantic City was a waste of time. He tells Claudia that lots of women would have been pleased with the trip. As they enter Hammonton, New Jersey Claudia asks Baxter to pull over and offers to let Baxter kiss her. She tells him to undo his trousers and then begins to manually stimulate him. The couple are shocked when an injured man stumbles out of the woods. ("The Ivory Tower")
