Storyline

Rob feels uncomfortable when Ritchie asks him a question most kids eventually ask: "where did I come from?" Rob gets around the question by filling Ritchie in on the events surrounding the day he was born, the only aspect Ritchie ever having been told previously having to do with being delivered by a laundry truck. Throw into the story that an excitable Rob got little sleep for the week prior to the actual delivery day in anticipation of it happening at any moment, that he slept in his clothes for that week, that he had a staff conference meeting that day, and that he was by circumstance wearing a very ill fitting pair of trousers, and the result is that Rob had a lot of trouble getting Laura to the hospital either in time or looking good doing it.
