In this scene, Daniel saves Natasha from almost certain death beneath the wheels of a white BMW that skipped a red light: he yanks her out of the way just in time, sending them both crashing to the ground in a tangle of limbs. They both survive relatively unscathed.

The same, however, cannot be said of Natasha's cellphone, which has a spider's web of cracks across its screen. Not only that, but her earphones are also damaged; one of the ear pads is dangling from the wires and the casing is cracked.

Daniel feels bad about what happened, so he offers to buy her a new pair. But Natasha declines Daniel's generous offer; he's already saved her life, so she probably figures that one selfless act is enough.
