Tycoon Elmer thinks he's a rabbit, which worries his corporate board. They send him to a sanatarium, where he gets to indulge his delusion further. Bugs, not knowing what's going on, agrees to trade places with Elmer.
Bugs gets into Elmer's bed and looks at the bottle of medicine on the table next to the bed. "Take one teaspoon with water." He obediently swallows the spoon and chases it with water. His reaction: "Ew! Nasty medicine, teaspoons."
