"Excuse me, I'm looking for my wife, Mrs Hage she...we just had a baby?"he tell the receptionist
"Congratulation's!" She looks on her in-patient list

Neal rushes to the lift (elevator) and presses the button "Come on, come on"
A young woman stands next to him and smiles "Patience is a virtue" she tells him

"Second, please" Neal grins "Maternity"
