Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Wild Bill Wharton was known for being mischievous and causing trouble. What did Wild Bill do to Harry? Do not consider when Wild Bill was first brought to E Block.

Answer: He urinated on him.

Wild Bill did many irritating things during his stay in E Block. One of these was urinating on Harry through his cell bars. Harry was obviously not pleased. He also spit in Paul's face and spit a moon pie onto Brutal. Yet he always ended up in the restraining room after his escapades.

When Wild Bill was first brought to E Block, he caused a huge amount of trouble and almost strangled Dean.
2. When Harry, Percy, and Bill Dodge met the mouse, Mr. Jingles, what was the first thing Percy threw at the mouse?

Answer: His billy club

Mr. Jingles approached Harry, Percy, and Bill during their shift. Harry and Bill were very impressed, but Percy took an immediate dislike to the little mouse. While Harry and Bill were feeding Mr. Jingles, Percy suddenly threw his billy club at him, barely missing. Percy went into a rage trying to kill the mouse, including throwing the trash can on him and trying to step on him, but Mr. Jingles outsmarted Percy and escaped into the restraining room, where he couldn't be found.
3. What did Hal tell Paul that Melinda did during her "bad days"?

Answer: She would swear.

When Paul and Jan visited Hal and Melinda, Hal told Paul that Melinda was having one of her good days. Paul wanted to know what a bad day was, and Hal replied that she would swear, uttering some of the most awful language he had ever heard. Paul was very shocked.

This was later confirmed when Paul brought John Coffey to heal Melinda, as they all heard her swear then. Of course, Melinda's swearing was not typical, but was a symptom of her brain tumor.
4. Who was the only prison guard we saw sit in the electric chair?

Answer: Percy Wetmore

After Percy stepped on Mr. Jingles, Paul and Brutal decided to teach him a lesson. Once Percy saw that Mr. Jingles was healed, he angrily confronted Paul and Brutal in the execution room. To scare him, Paul and Brutal forced Percy into the electric chair and made him promise to apply to Briar Ridge if they let him be out front for Del's execution. Toot-Toot also sat in the chair during rehearsals, but he was a trusty, not a guard. Of course, Bitterbuck, Del, and John Coffey sat in the chair when they were executed.
5. When Mr. Jingles was first spotted, who stood by the restraining room door with a mop, trying to catch him?

Answer: Dean

Paul, Brutal, and Dean were the first guards on E Block to see Mr. Jingles. When they realized that the mouse was in the restraining room, they knew he would be chewing the padding out of the walls. But the restraining room was also a storage room, and all the junk in there had to be cleaned out before they could find the mouse. Dean stood by the door with a mop in case he ran out, but Mr. Jingles was nowhere to be seen. "Three grown, men, outsmarted by a mouse!"
6. When John Coffey was brought to E Block, what did he ask after Paul asked him if he had any questions?

Answer: If they left a light on at night

In his cell, John Coffey was read the typical new prisoner drill by Paul. Paul asked if he had any questions, and John asked if they left a light on after bedtime, because he was sometimes scared of the dark in a strange place. Paul replied that they did have lights on at night, but everyone thought it was a rather strange question from a convicted murderer.

When John was to be executed, he didn't want the hood over his face because he was scared of the dark.
7. Arlen Bitterbuck said that he had once had a young wife who had been 18 years old.

Answer: False

Bitterbuck said he had once had a young wife when he was 18 years old; he never said her age. He told Paul that this was his happiest time, and wanted to know if a man seriously repented what he had done wrong, could he go back to his happiest time? This conversation took place right before Bitterbuck's execution. It was a touching scene.
8. What was the name of the woman that the older Paul Edgecomb told his story to?

Answer: Elaine

Paul told his friend Elaine the story of John Coffey in the present day, when he was 108 years old. He also showed her the still-living Mr. Jingles. Paul told Elaine that this was his curse: to live while all those he loved would die, including Elaine. We later saw Paul attending Elaine's funeral.
9. Which of the following was NOT something John Coffey healed?

Answer: Del's broken fingers

Paul was the first person who witnessed John's healing power, when John took away Paul's extremely painful urinary infection. John also healed a busted-up Mr. Jingles when Percy squashed him. Later, Paul, Brutal, and Harry took John to the Moores' house to heal Melinda of her brain tumor. John also tried to heal the two dead girls he had been convicted of killing, but he was too late. John never healed Del's broken fingers; they stayed broken until his death.
10. What was Wild Bill yelling repeatedly during Del's execution?

Answer: "He's frying now!"

As Del was electrocuted and died his awful death, Wild Bill was having a great time in his cell. He kept yelling repeatedly, "He's frying now!", along with "They're cooking him good!". He also said that he could "smell the gumbo", and even made up a song about "a French-fried Cajun". Paul came in and told Wild Bill that he was 10 seconds away from spending the rest of his life in the padded room, which shut Wild Bill up for the time being.
