At the hospital Dr. Laver introduces Alice to the care of young babies. How will she cope?

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.
