You're sick.  Isn't the missing one Bashful?

Um, lessee:

I can't possibly nominate anyone for Dopey without risking bodily harm
at the next fighting practice (except perhaps a certain formerly-scruffy
Earl of my acquaintance).

I don't know of any knights with particularly bad hay fever or a coke
habit, so that pretty much leaves out Sneezy.

Sleepy could be interpreted a couple of ways - there are some that sorta
sneak up on you....

I'm all for Amalric as one of the Happy nominees.

There are several potential Grumpy candidates, with much the same
problem as nominating anyone for Dopey.

That kinda leaves Doc, 'cause I don't hardly know *any* knights that are
