Sometimes it is better to sleep before an important test than to study for it all night. Learn why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:09 Explanations: 3:02 Fast dialog: 16:12 Adam: Sit still and stop bouncing your leg like that! Ellen: Sorry, I didn’t realize I was doing it. I’m just a little jittery. Adam: Well, try to chill out. We’re supposed to be studying and your restlessness is distracting. Ellen: I can’t help it. I’m like this because I had a lot of coffee. That’s the only way I can do an all-nighter. Adam: But how can you study when you’re fidgeting all the time? Stop tapping your pen on the table! Ellen: Sorry. It’s either I’m worked up or I fall asleep, and tomorrow’s test is a make-or-break one for me. I’ve got to do well. Adam: I don’t see how you can get any studying done when you’re strung out on caffeine. You’re so jumpy and I think you’re starting to twitch. Why don’t you try to counteract the caffeine by drinking lots of water? Ellen: Do you know how long it took me to get this keyed up? I’m not doing anything to reduce the effects. Adam: Fine. Ellen: Hey, where are you going? Adam: Anywhere but here! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
