This quote does not doubt this fact - it does begin to put a new spin on things though. But why does Joe not tell Clarissa about the phone call? There are several reasons why this may be, but looking at Joes character - quite a straight laced, level headed person - it is more likely that Joe was embarrassed by what was said during the call as it is not your everyday occurrence that a strange man calls to tell you that he loves you in the early hours of the morning. It is probable that Joe also feels that he has indirectly been unfaithful to Clarissa as the phone call was directed at him and so it is possible Joe is feeling guilty.
