Edna doesn't wait for Leonce's response about her decision to relocate and hastily puts her plans into action without much consideration. She takes only her basic belongings and moves. Later, Alcee shows up unannounced in the afternoon and sees Edna taking down a picture from the wall while standing on a stepladder. He assists her with the task. Edna informs him that she plans to have a dinner party in two days, with the best of everything, and expects Leonce to pay for it. After bidding farewell to Alcee, he is disappointed that he won't be able to see her before the party.
