Visitor: Моя дружина лежить в палаті 3Б.

Visitor: І залишити її саму на всю ніч?

Nurse: I’m afraid that’s the policy, sir.

Visitor: Напевно, Ви можете зробити виняток? А що, як я буду потрібен їй вночі?

Nurse: Don’t worry, we’ll look after her. What she really needs is her rest.

Visitor: Деякі наші друзі хочуть відвідати її. Коли вони можуть прийти?

Nurse: Visiting hours are from 9 to 11 in the morning and 4 to 7 in the evening, but I’m afraid while your wife is on bedrest the doctor has requested that only immediate family members come in to see her.

Visitor: Хіба друзі не можуть навіть зайти, щоб принести їй квіти?

Visitor: Що ж, я вважаю, це все в її інтересах.

Nurse: Thanks for understanding. Now, I’m going to bring your wife her dinner. Why don’t you head home and get something to eat yourself?

Visitor: Добре. Мені справді страшенно не хочеться залишати її саму, але це, скоріш за все, хороша ідея.
