“You’re MISTER Stephenson?” asks the doorman.
“SERGEANT Stephenson,” corrects Al. He pauses. “What did you expect – – a four-star general?” He heads for the elevator.
“I’m sorry to have kept you waiting,” the doorman says to the phone.
“Fourth floor,” says Al to the elevator operator.
“Yes, sir,” says the elevator operator. Al sets his duffel bag down, reshuffles his luggage, and picks it all back up as the elevator arrives at the fourth floor.
Al stands in the hallway in front of Apartment D. The music to “Among My Souvenirs” begins to play. He walks to the door, then presses the doorbell.
“I’ll get it, Peg,” says Al’s son, Rob, behind the door. Rob opens the door and is about to let out a yell, when Al silences him.
