"Drink a whole 8-ounce glass of water and an Advil before you go to bed. If you have a Liquid I.V., throw that in the water. Then make sure you wake up and chug a Pedialyte."

"Three Advil, a scoop or two of peanut butter, and a little bit of cucumber water. You gotta do 'em in increments — and peanut butter before everything else. But if you fail at that, do 'em all together."
