Griff tells Ida of running into her father Walter after dropping her off but was lucky enough not to have to tell him where they had gone - the cinema.
He informs her he will wait at their usual Post Office corner in Didsbury on the off change that she happens to walk by that way.
"If you don't appear on Monday it will gradually dawn upon me that you had something better to do - maybe a assignation with a policeman in plain clothes, or a non-uniformed detective," but that he will wait there nonetheless.
He's going to see a comedy film and writes about walking, books and marriages.
He references, without context, the conductor and composer Mieczyslaw Mierzejewski a few times and I have no idea why.
He reminds her that just in case she doesn't fall in love with any of the "tail-coated gents" at the Midland, that he would like to see her for a date.
