“Perhaps you’re right,” says Ada, as Peter catches her in his arms. “You’d better get a doctor.”

“Of course!” says Peter. “Right away.”

“Alright,” says Peter, pointing at the restroom door. “Now, there’s an attendant in there, she’ll take care of you in the meantime. Now I won’t be a minute.”

Ada staggers into the ladies’ room, then turns around. “Thank you!” she says to Peter, and squeezes his hand before Peter closes the door. He runs off to fetch help.

The scene pauses for a moment, then the door slowly opens, with Ada peeking out of the restroom. She sees no sign of Peter, then briskly walks down the concourse toward Flight Two.
