Technically, the answer expression should be written like this:

send ("answer" && quote & "Go to bed!" & quote && "with" && quote & "no" &
quote) to me in 30 seconds

...otherwise the expression is not formatted correctly.  I would estimate
(without being on the inside) that the fact that the above examples worked
can be chalked up to a fluke in the engine.
