John Q. Archibald: [turns frustrated] Look, I don't have 30 days.
Rebecca Payne: I know you don't.
John Q. Archibald: And quite frankly, I'm getting sick of the runaround. Now what I need is my son's name...
Rebecca Payne: Mr. Archibald, your account is in access of $30,000. The hospital has been over backwards to help you out.
