Once he is alone in the hallway, he reads about what Camille has written in her journal about him. Meanwhile, back in the apartment, John tries to tell Camille that Isaac is no good for her, and that she should be concentrating on her studies. Camille yells at him that he has no right to interfere in her personal life. John asks for Camille's opinion of him, and she tells him that he is over-opinionated, bull-headed, and is always sticking his nose into other people's business. There is another knock at the door, and it is a man with flowers for Camille. He also serenades her with a sexy saxophone tune. Camille is touched. She hurries John out of the apartment, telling him that she will see him TOMORROW. A few seconds later, Isaac comes back, telling her that he doesn't stop until he gets what he wants, and he won't go away. When she leaves to get a vase for the flowers, Isaac puts the journal back where he found it. He hastily leaves her with her thoughts.
