Mork, too unfamiliar with Earthling ways to go out on his own, moves into the attic of Mindy's apartment over the outraged opposition of her old-fashioned father. Mindy determines to keep secret the fact that Mork is from another planet while she teaches him to act human and helps him find a job. Then Frederick, Mindy's conservative father, demands to know what is going on between Mork and his daughter. Mindy is forced to share the secret that Mork is from the planet Ork. After Mindy has bowed to Frederick's orders that she get rid of Mork, she begins to realize that she doesn't want him to leave.


  • Mork

    Why would anyone think I'm weird? [scooping out two cornflakes] We must save two to build a new race! Swim, you little nimnals! I hope the rest can tread coffee.

  • Mindy

    You know, I still can't get over this. I'm sitting here having breakfast with a being from another planet!

  • Mork

    What a coincidence. So am I!

  • Mork

    Guess it's time to hit the ol' coat rack, then.

  • Mindy

    Oh, Mork, not the armoire. Well, you're on Earth now. You might as well start acting a little more like it, right?

  • Mork

    True. Where do you sleep?

  • Mindy

    On a bed. Boy, have you got a lot to learn.

  • Mork

    Good, I'll sleep with you. I'm always willing to learn!
