  • Episode Description
  • Lionel's friend, Lenny - a fellow "Cliffhanger" aficianado - comes for a visit, after having since moved away. When he arrives at the library, however, Lionel finds out that Lenny doesn't like "Cliffhanger" anymore. That instead, he has taken a liking to a similar book hero, "Justin Time"! Can Lionel and Lenny still be friends, even if they don't like the same things?

    Allusions (1)

    • Narrator: We find Justin Time where we saw him last, resting…
      The boringness of the book character Justin Time, plus the fact that he's on a hammock most of the day, links back to the regular "Love of Chair" sequence on the Lions' direct predecessor, The Electric Company. In that sequence, sentences were superimposed over a boy (Skip Hinnant) sitting idlely.
