"Visiting Hours" is the seventh mission of the The Ronin story arc in Saints Row 2.

Hospital under siege
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline

Overview[edit | edit source]

Playa visits Johnny Gat at the Stilwater Memorial Hospital and informs him of Jyunichi's death. Playa also tells Gat that they're waiting for him to leave hospital before they start Aisha's funeral. Unfortunately, The Ronin have returned in an attempt to finish Jyunichi's work and kill Gat. They cut the electricity cables and, as the lights go out, Playa and Johnny decide it's time to return to the Saints Hideout.[1]

In the aftermath, Dane Vogel is not happy about the massacre at the hospital and meets with the Akujis. He demands they prevent more PR disasters, but is rebuffed by Kazuo Akuji, who believes that should Ultor want The Ronin's continued protection, they should offer "something much more substantial". Vogel refuses and leaves on bad terms; without Ultor now paying protection money, The Ronin suffer a severe lack of income.[2]

Story[edit | edit source]

The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the Mission, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.

Stilwater Memorial is a disaster scene today and patients are being transported to nearby facilities. Witnesses describe mass pandemonium as Ronin gang members stormed the hospital in search of a patient, presumed to be Johnny Gat of the Third Street Saints. Hospital officials are optimistic that power will be restored and patients can begin returning shortly.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Visiting Hours - Gat's Health HUD.png

Singleplayer[edit | edit source]

Go to the head of Gat's bed

Begin by grabbing the gurney Johnny is on. The gurney controls somewhat awkwardly but should be fairly straightforward aside from turning; it controls similarly to taking a Human Shield. Gat's health is constantly falling as time goes by, but there is more than enough time to stop and kill any enemies in their way.

Get Gat out of the hospital

Head along the corridor and through the theaters, killing any enemies in the way. Head down another corridor to the lift - upon using it, Gat's health is fully refilled.

Head to the front door

After another corridor, release Gat's gurney to open the front door.

Get in the ambulance

Witness the Ambulance be destroyed by an RPG Launcher.

Head back to the elevator

Head back inside the hospital and back to the lift. Head through a final corridor before reaching the hospital's Horizon helicopter.

Get back to the Saints Hideout

Inside, Gat's health is once again refilled. Fly to the Saints Hideout and avoid the pursuing Ronin Tornado.

The Horizon has no offensive capabilities, so the intent of the mission is dodge rockets fired by the Tornado. It is instead possible to immediately exit the helicopter after entering it, and to destroy the Tornado to make the flight to the Saints Crib much easier.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The Stilwater Gazette newspaper clipping from the completion screen and Newspaper Clipboard.

  • In Co-op mode, this mission plays differently; one player must get Johnny Gat outside of the hospital by pushing him out while the other player has to go to the roof, get the helicopter there, and fly it down to the parking lot, avoiding The Ronin armed with RPG Launchers. Once the helicopter has landed, players must get Johnny on-board and then fly it back to the Saints Hideout while avoiding the enemy Tornado.
  • The map can be confusing during this mission as it shows enemies on all floors of the hospital rather than just those on the current floor, thus showing enemies that aren't there.
  • This mission is based on a scene[3] from the movie Rush Hour 3.
  • Stamina bar decreases much slower, while sprinting, and refills faster during the mission.
  • It is possible to exit the Horizon, and pull Gat out of the passenger side. Once out, he can be taken as a Human Shield, and cannot be recruited, because all follower slots are locked during the mission. Gat does not re-enter the helicopter, and killing him still causes the mission to fail, but it is possible to complete the mission by leaving him behind and flying the helicopter back to the Saints Hideout.
  • In addition to handling similar to a Human Shield, after the gurney is grabbed, Playa usually says the line as if they take a Human Shield.
  • Originally, this mission was to feature Shock Paddles located in various sections of the hospital and would be used to restore Gat's health. The mission script still contains disabled sections about this.

"Changing the Deal" cutscene[edit | edit source]

Dane Vogel: "It's a pleasure to meet you Mr. Akuji. Shall we get down to business?"
Kazuo Akuji (subtitle): "*speaks Japanese*"
Kazuo Akuji (Japanese audio): "やつの事など、どうでもいい。"
Kazuo Akuji (transliteration): "Yatsu no koto nado, dō demo ī."
Kazuo Akuji (translation): "I don't care about men like him."
Dane Vogel: "You should care because I represent a multi-billion dollar corporation that employs your can we sit down?"
Dane Vogel: "With the recent change in management, I figured it'd be a good idea to touch base. We at Ultor understand that when working with the Ronin there's bound to be some collateral damage. However turning a hospital into a charnel house is something that even I can't need to keep your men under control."
Kazuo Akuji: "My English must not be as good as I thought it sounded like you were giving me an order."
Dane Vogel: "You're quite astute Mr. Akuji."
Kazuo Akuji: "I'm not a 20 something who is impressed by a power tie Mr. Vogel, I suggest you stop trying to bully me."
Dane Vogel: "Mr. Akuji, your son and I negotiated a very reasonable contract...."
Kazuo Akuji: "My son's an idiot Mr. Vogel...if you wish for the Ronin's protection you had best be prepared to offer us something much more substantial."
Dane Vogel: "That's not going to happen."
Kazuo Akuji: "Then our business is concluded."
Dane Vogel: "Mr. Akuji, I can't possibly stress how unwise this cou-"
Kazuo Akuji: "Be silent. You can show yourself out now."
Dane Vogel: "Well, I guess that's that."
Dane Vogel: "Best of luck gentlemen."
