Babe is listening from the other side of the lobby and interrupts. She tells Alfred that Dixie is indeed missing. Alfred believes Babe, which angers JR because he had told Alfred that Dixie was missing. Babe politely asks for a minute of Alfreds time. Alfred, who has called for a security guard, tells the guard he can leave but says he still wont be able to turn over Dixies account information. Babe asks him if his own mother were missing, wouldnt he do anything to find her, including go through her bank records.
