Before leaving, she leaves him the phone number of her friend sculptor Kiki. Paul, intrigued and attracted, makes a phone call and Marcy invites him to go at her's. Although it's rather late, Paul arrives in the seedy Soho neighbour and finds Kiki, who tells him Marcy is arriving. After some misunderstandings, Paul leaves Marcy alone and walks into a bar where he meets Tom, the host, and Julia, the waitress, and they make friendship. Tom offers to help him but Paul in turn has to go to his house to check the alarm, because of some strange and frequent thefts in the area. Paul goes to Tom's but runs into his roommates who mistakes him for an intruder.
