Jeff Albertson (Comic Book Guy) asks if there is a word in Klingon for "loneliness." He then pulls a book out of his pocket and makes a noise that sounds vaguely Klingon. However, Marc Okrand's official Klingon dictionary does not list a word for "loneliness." Despite the most recent revision being in 1992, no updated dictionary has been released since. See more »

The Comic Book Guy takes centre stage
15 January 2020 | by studioATSee all my reviews

The Comic Book Guy falls ill, leaving Bart and Millhouse to fill in for him in this better than average episode.

By this stage in the shows run the writers obviously were looking to branch out and give the many supporting characters the opportunity to shine, and become more developed.

That is well achieved here, but it does leave you wanting a bit more from Marge/Lisa etc as well.
