  • Man loses his mind and has to relearn words.

    What if this happened to you? All of a sudden, the word "lunch" became "dinosaur?" What would you do?

    When I saw this episode nearly 20 years ago, it struck a chord with me. I mean, you hear about people losing their minds, but what is it like? This episode serves as an example for what it could be like to lose one's mind.

    Robert Klein delivers a strong performance in this episode, too. Annie Potts is a welcome co-star. I only remembered her from Ghostbusters.

    In a social context, this episode could have aired back in the original series time. I mean, work stress in the modern office is a universal theme.
