More Information

Note that this is not the Klingon word for English "Please!" This is a verb with meaning "please somebody", i.e. "make somebody be pleased".

This is used in a slang expression to mention the need to go to the bathroom:
There is a slang expression or idiom that's used from time to time, though mostly (but hardly always) by or to kids: qIvon belmoH (as in DaH jImej. qIvonwIj vIbelnISmoH. and the like). (qepHom 2019)

In the Klingon translation of the Little Prince, this was used to express the English request "Please, do..." by saying belmoH. This was a literal translation of the idea od saying "make me being pleased".
