What is the name of the hostel [using the likely-inaccurate Player's Guide name] in Happy Happy Village? Meagre [Meager] Livin' Farm. [The comment about the Player's Guide referred to the fact the PG called it a "hostel", and that felt like a perfectly proper way to refer to it.]

What are the three burger-type items in EarthBound? The Hamburger, the Double burger, the Mammoth burger.
Where can the Coin of Silence be found in a present? First, hand me a SPoD. Second, I'd like to admit that I was corrected on this question and thought I made the necessary modifications to the question. I didn't. I was intending for the Milky Well cave system [which is actually the Coin of Slumber], but the correction stated the gold mine. I'm taking both as correct due to my forgetfulness in correcting. Third, hand me another SPoD. Fourth, give me a third SPoD.
Where are you warped if you're shocked by Carpainter's lightning? You are warped to Meagre Livin' Farm. You are warped nowhere else. You are not warped anywhere by way of the head-handed-to-you scene, because you'd have to have been killed in battle, but the lightning will be reflected if you're in battle because you'd have the Franklin badge [a pre-requisite to fighting Carpainter].
