He tells her for that very reason, he'd like her to attend with him. She tells him there's no way she'd remotely consider going on a date with him. He tells her he's not asking for that. He's in a relationship. Also, he knows a major reason why she doesn't want to attend the event is because she's afraid of running into Jason.
