Mindy is hurt when her date Brad misconstrues Mork's living in her apartment and walks out--like her other boyfriends. Later she finds a farewell note from Mork, who believes his presence is making Mindy unhappy. Meanwhile, Mork follows young Eugene's advice to find a flop-house because of his meager funds. By mistake he wanders into the Friends of Venus headquarters.
Are you running away?
How can you tell?
It's written all over your face.
Shazbot! I've broken out in words!
Do you know any of the Friends of Venus?
I know some people from Venus. I know one guy that's kinda cute, if you're into short and fuzzy.
Good start. But we need more power in your voice and more conviction!
Oh, I see... [full-on televangelist mode] FRIEEEEEEEEND! I have need of your attention. Frieeeeend! Do you realize that the Venusians are coming down to earth? But they are NOT coming here on Veterans' Day, NOT on April Fool-us Day, but on Labor Day baby! BAAAAABY! Can you hear me frieeeend?
I hear ya!
Are you ready now, can I get a nanu nanu?
Thank you, frieeeeend! D'you realize, friend, what they are coming here to do? Because they've come down here to BLOOOOW the earth to smithereens! But it's not that bad, friend, because they're sending a ship down here to save 1,000 of us! And they're making a list and they're checking it twice. Now, frieeeeeend, now you could either stay DOOOOWN here in your disco drug-infested inferno! Or come UUUUP! to Venus! And have your very own Venuuuusian condominimum with hot and cold runnin' champagne and underwater dancing. You must apply NOW!
Mork! Mork, that was beautiful! [Exidor turns to one of his invisible friends] Why can't you be more like him?
