"The Blue Elephant"



Don't forget to close the tap, Ok.



Darling, don't forget to close the tap.


"New Evidence Related to the

Islamic Museum Robbery"

Was the islamic museum robbed?

When was the last time you

read a newspaper?!, Boss.

Almost 5 years.

5 years!!, this happened 3 months ago.

The bastards spent like a gazillion pounds

renovating it and at the end it got robbed.

They should have spent the money

rehabilitating the junkies filling the streets.


"Al Abasya Psychiatric Hospital"

Dr. Safaa'!

Welcome Yehia!

didn't you miss the hospital?

I missed the hospital and the patients.

Have a seat.

What would you like to drink?

Coffee, half a spoon of sugar

and a glass of water, please.

Coffee, half a spoon of sugar.

How are you doing?

Still staying alone.

There is no...

No, there isn't.

I am more comfortable alone.



Her eyes are fixed.

Pretending to be busy.


Preparing to attack.


Now, you've completed

5 years absent from work.

Of course I am keeping out the legal

affairs because of your circumstances.

But last week, the inspection committee

was going to take a legal action.

if it weren't for my intervention.

I won't allow anyone to

accuse me of prejudice.

But, what upsetted me more

is knowing that you have not

submitted a single paper of your thesis.

What's the matter, Yehia?!

No work and no thesis!

What's left, then?!

Sorry doctor, the research

consumed a lot of time.

Tell me that the PhD is not important

I can understand that.

You can survive without it.

And you can apply for

any fellowship abroad.

But work, is it also not important?!

I finished a considerable

part of the thesis.

You have been saying the

same thing for the past 5 years.

Do you know what this means?

It means that you are ending your

career at the stroke of a pen.

Yehia!, I am not only

the hospital manager.

I regard myself as your elder sister.

The best I could do

to avoid your dismissal

is to let you back in

and you have to attend.

And this will be a special

exception made for my sake.

Come back?, where?

Come back to the hospital.

But...can we postpone it

till I complete my thesis?

My offer is a package

take it wholly or leave it.

Your legal situation is

the most important issue.

If you will attend, that's ok.

If not, I will testimony that

you shall not work again.

And keep searching for someone to hire you

after you get fired from a distinguished

hospital like "Al Abasya".

Ok, doctor.

As you please.

Now, only choosing a suitable

department is left.

Intermediate Care...full.

I have a vacant place

in the senility department.

No, please!, I won't stand

the bedwetting, doctor.

What do you think about "8 west"?

The unstable building?

No, your information is

not up to date, then.

"8 west" is the most

secure prison in Egypt, nowadays.

Something befitting psychotic criminals.

The least dangerous of them, killed his

whole family with cold blood.

Escaping it, is virtually impossible.

What's so funny?!

I am laughing, because you inteneded

to admit me to "8 west" from the beginning.

So you proposed the senility

and the bedwetting.

So that I will easily agree on the prison.

What was the subject of your thesis again?

"Psychoanalysis Through Body Language"

Then, instead of experimenting

what you studied on us.

Use that knowledge in your thesis, doctor.

I will try to.


You were one of the best doctors we had.

No one can forget the tough

cases that you treated.

It will be a great loss

if you waste all of that.
