One of my all-time favorites because it depicts the classic problem with engineers - they misinterpret talk of problems with the need for them to solve said problems, when all they really needed to do was just listen and sympathize, and occasionally, *very* occasionally, and only with great tact or indirectness, suggesting other alternatives.
Look on Liz face in second panel says is all. Mongobert try same thing with Mongowife. When Mongobert wake up in hospital afterwards, Mongowife explain that Mongoberts job is to listen only. Mongobert never forget (have scars to remind him).
