Combine two awk expressions


Hello friends, I am a beginnner in awk, so need little help! I am trying to get hostnames against IP, and I did:
Code:
example# nslookup 10.123.10.20
Server: ....
Address: .....

Name: hostname.domain.org.com
Address:.... 
Now I want only hostname as output, so I did:
Code:
example# nslookup 10.123.10.20 | awk '/Name/' | awk -F" " '{print $2}'
So my question is, how to combine these two awk expression to form a single awk command. How we can combine multiple awk expressions in a single cmd? I tried seaching many articles, but couldn't get anything helpful. I am expecting not just full command, but also a well explained answer.
Thanks in advance!

this kind of expressions can be combined easily:
awk ' /pattern/ { print $2 } '
should work
otherwise it depends on the two expressions
