The boys sometimes refer to their regular "Klingon Boggle Night" in other episodesalthough IIRC we've only seen them play once.

Not only did Sheldon say it (at a RPG tournament), but his nemesis Will Wheaton (who had unknowingly offended him several years prior) turned to the player next to him and said, "Did he just say 'Revenge is a dish best served cold' in Klingon?!"  

He did indeed, and it was obvious that the actor was trying very hard to say it right.  It may not have passed Maltz's standards, but I understood him right off!
