This makes her sure that he was stalking her all along. She tries to run out, but he stops her. He really is a janitor and he got a crazy thought that maybe if she got to know him, it wouldn’t matter that he wasn’t the classiest bloke on the block. He asks her if she could go for a guy like him. She finds his question inappropriate. He is not fired. He admitted that he had feelings for him. She expected him to have feelings for her. She is flattered. He admires her. He tells her that he feels more for her than admiration. She tells him that they have to keep things strictly business. She wants the subject closed.
