Episode 32: Baby talk
Dr. Laver: Okay, well in this room we monitor the babies overnight. Now, the important thing is to talk to them.
Alice: Talk to them? What do I say?
Dr. Laver:

Well, watch me. Hello, you are a handsome boy aren't you? You're gorgeous. Now you try. Speak to the baby next to you.

Alice:

Oh, okay. Hello little one! Who's a handsome boy then?

Dr. Laver:

Erm, that's a girl.

Alice:

Oh! Who's a pretty little girl? What a lovely smile! Aren't you lovely? Oh, oh, oh!

Dr. Laver:

Excellent, excellent - you're a natural. You'll make a very good nurse here and a lovely mother one day I'm sure.
