Case Quizes Clinical Cases

Revisiting: Definitely The Shortest Quiz on Record!

Shana Sept

Elaine gives the answer to the November quiz

Mom, it’s time for the Quiz!

Again?  What time is it?

Unfortunately, I have another death to report.

Is this something I should be sitting down for?

“The Simpsons” has suffered the passing of Marcia Wallace (Edna Krabappel, Bart’s 4th grade teacher).

OMG! Marcia Wallace died?

But you know what Mom?  I can hardly think about deceased cast members from “The Simpsons” without mentioning Phil Hartman!

Phil Hartman?! 

Do you remember where you were when you heard Phil Hartman died?

I was at home!  

In fact let’s talk about Phil Hartman for a minute.

We seem to be already talking about him!

My favorite character he played on “Saturday Night Live” was Ed McMahon.


Who else did he do?



Anyway I just adore Phil Hartman.  He was so funny on “Saturday Night Live”, funny on “The Simpsons”, and he was just so talented and an amazing voice actor.  My favorite roles of his on “The Simpsons”:

Lionel Hutz



and Troy McClure (“Hi, I’m Troy McClure!”) 


Remembering Marcia Wallace…

Oh yes, I vaguely remember her from the beginning of this article!

Here’s Marcia Wallace on the Simpsons as Edna Krabappel:

Shana, you haven’t even mentioned Marcia Wallace’s most famous role as Bob Newhart’s receptionist on “The Bob Newhart Show”!


Also it wouldn’t be a complete memorial of Phil Hartman…

Did you just say Phil Hartman?  Again?

…without: The Troy McClure montage!

I sense that it’s time to break for lunch.

So that’s all for this month’s Entertainment News.  I’m off to watch a well-loved childhood film.  But first, who’s case do we have this month?

Shana, if this is the shortest case on record (and it is….), it’s accompanied by the longest audience warm-up in the world!!!!!!!!

And now for our quiz:

Dear Elaine,

Welcome to Bedtime Madness!  Last night, my 5 year old was so excited about seeing his favorite cousin today for Halloween, he was wide-eyed, awake and jumping up and down in bed!  I gave him _________30C

and in 5 minutes he was asleep!

OK, everybody, what’s the remedy?  Write to me at [email protected] and let me know!  The answer will be in next month’s ezine.  Bye-bye!








Hello! Is the caller there?????

Hi Elaine!
Prepare yourself for the shortest answer on record:

Maryam from Pakistan.

And here’s an even shorter reply: D’oh!

You mean it’s not Belladonna?

Maryam, I guess you’re not familiar with this rubric–
“Mind: joy, excessive, sleeplessness, from” (
translation: sleeplessness from excessive joy). There are only two remedies:

Carcinocin, COFFEA.

So the remedy was Coffea, which is more strongly indicated. It’s for excitement from being over-joyed. Think of a kid who comes home after a birthday party and can’t wind down, or a kid who’s all excited about a party the next day and can’t go to sleep, or anything similar to that. That’s Coffea.

Oh no!
I really did not know this indication.
Anyways, now I know it very well. 🙂



Wow, we have a new caller this time! Hello…. This is the Hpathy Ezine, you’re on the air….

Hi, Elaine,

I think the remedy is COFFEA.

“Sleepless- joy, excessive.

Sleepless –on account of mental activity.

Coffea is especially impressionable to pleasurable impressions.

Eagerly waiting for your explanations and valuable guidelines.


JPF, you’re right! And therefore, I have no explanations nor valuable guidelines!


Dr. B, we had a lot of winners this time!!! Let’s congratulate them shall we? Congratulations go to:



Gail Ment

Sujaya Prabha




ML Singh from Bareilly, India


Juan Pablo Diaz Romero




This is for all of you: “Coffee Grind” by Hank Ballard and the Midnighters!

See ya later, alligator!
