He gets the door open and all he sees is the wine bottles. She is all excited but when he walks in he lets the door shut behind him locking him and Gloria in there again. She is all upset but he doesn’t seem to care. All he is thinking of is the wine. She tells him that Jeffery’s ex girlfriend locked her in there and he tells her about them upstairs.

Jeffery goes to the Club and tells Kyon that he is going to check in but he wants her to find a discrete place to stay for the night and he wants her on the first flight out in the morning.
