Diane goes to the door of the flat and fiddles with the lock.  "You've been having me on.  This door was locked," says Diane.  She orders him out.  Eddie says he was going to ask her to have dinner with him tonight.  Diane says no, and asks him to leave, and Eddie does.  Diane goes into the kitchen, then a moment later she hears a voice from the living room.  She goes into her living room and see's Eddie Lee standing there.  "You sure you won't change your mind?" he asks.  "You got in.  How?" asks Diane.  Eddie tells her that he slipped the lock.  He apologises and says he will take her out to make up for it.  Diane says no.  Eddie says he will call a taxi and picks up the phone.  He orders the taxi.  "Well don't just stand there.  Get your glad rags on darling," he says.
