Why does she suddenly say sorry to Scott Frank?
The speaker here does not say "sorry" to necessarily apologize for something, but rather to make an interjection or correction about a previously made statement. She says "Scott" originally, and then says "sorry" to clarify the full name of the individual mentioned. It has a meaning and function similar to "excuse me," which also can be used as an interjection in similar situations. Ex: I went on vacation a month, sorry, two months ago. = I went on vacation a month, excuse me, two months ago.
