The celebrity-obsessed coat check girl at his hangout has, however, and is happy to come home with him and give him a synopsis. Abruptly woken at 5:00 AM by a police detective, Dix learns that the girl was found murdered, and he was the last person to see her alive. Laurel gives him an alibi, and they begin seeing each other.
