"Scenario V: From Relationship to Access
You did a nice job connecting with the nurse in the parking lot. She tells you her name is AAA, and she makes the comment: “I’m surprised Dr. BBB saw you at all today. You know, Dr. BBB has an office policy of only seeing one rep from each company, and he already has a pretty good rapport with your partner. You’re lucky you got in at all today. To be honest, I’m not sure how you SLIPPED BY. But in the future, Dr. BBB will prefer to deal with your partner exclusively.

“Anyway, thanks for the doughnuts. And good luck!”

conseguiu entrar
Explanation:
"Slip by" literalmente significa se esgueirar, entrar sem ser percebido. Acredito que, no contexto, isso implique que alguém deixou ele entrar por engano, que isso não devia ter acontecido.
