Could it be? Could Anthony be dating someone else? Or is this going to be some lame "fooled ya!" where the person he's invited turns out to be Francoise or his sister or something?
Also, when "escort" is put in quotes like that the mind can only go one way.
And Anthony is a total priss for saying "And to what do I owe the honor of this most welcome visit?" And how short is his tie, anyway? Yeesh.
