A random girl Joel saw walking on the beach sees him at a local restaurant, then at the train station, and then on the train. She tries waving to him and being friendly, but Joel is very shy.
On the train, the girl sits by Joel and introduces herself as Clementine.
Joel and Clementine talk about hair dye and the "Clementine" song, which Joel insists he has never heard before. We also find out that Clementine doesn't think a whole lot of nice things about herself.
Joel tries to be nice (he says "nice" a lot), but it backfires, because Clementine doesn't like "nice." But then she decides she does like "nice, "and she apologizes. She is confusing.
