As the sequence moves forward and Karen begins narrating, the camera focuses on her with a close up and zooms out allowing the audience to see her upset expression focused on Henry. The sequence then moves to different sets. The tracking and seamless cutting from the streets to Karen's home overlaid by her narration create the feeling that we haven't moved to a new sequence but are still continuing the date scene. Even as it reveals Karen in new wardrobe, returning to the restaurant on a separate evening, the audience are still within the same sequence.
