Pat Grogan goes back to Jane's flat and takes it for granted that he will be staying the night, but Jane tells him that he will have to find somewhere to stay because it's not her flat.  "Diane won't approve," she says.  "But you can persuade her Jane," says Pat, and puts his hands on Jane's shoulders.  Jane says he won't get around her and he isn't staying here tonight.  "I shouldn't have let you stay here anyway without Diane's permission," says Jane.  "To hell with Diane," shouts Pat.  At that moment Diane Parker arrives at the flat.
