Unrelated anecdote: I was in a hospital some years back, and my roommate was an elderly, rather grumpy and demanding man. The nurse came in at the start of her shift and he asked her for a cup of coffee. She told him, "I'm just starting my rounds and have to check in on all of my patients, but as soon as I get back to the nurses' station, I'll be glad to make a fresh pot." The old man said, "I want to check out." The nurse replied, "Honey, this is the Hotel California. You can check out, but you can't leave."
