Mindy's grandmother, Cora Hudson, has the blues, which have been caused by the death of one of her few remaining friends. Mork is eager to help Cora regain her zest for living but Mindy explains that Cora needs someone her own age, never dreaming that he will use his Orkan age machine to fill the bill. Aged, except for the twinkle in his eye, Mork shows up at the music store to buy a harmonica and begins flirting outrageously with Cora. Although dating "Bill Hohner" makes Cora happy again, she does detect something familiar about him. Meanwhile, Mork reveals to Mindy and Frederick that he is the old man, and they accuse him of perpetrating a cruel hoax because Cora will suffer after the necessary breakup of the romance.
We thought we would go up to Boulder Lake and have a picnic. I have ham sandwiches and hot chocolate in there.
Yeah, and I see Mork has the blanket and the... pepper?
No, ants. Mindy said that no picnic is complete without them!
Those ants are revolting!
No! They are happy with their form of government. You see, the little suckers are just dancing!
Hey, good looking!
Mindy's not in.
Who's Mindy? I was talking to you, brown eyes!
Oh! What can I do to help you?
You can walk up and down my back in a flimsy kimono!
That may break her heart! Don't you see that will do more harm than good?
Oh, sudden realization. Mork the good is suddenly Mork the bozo... better call a travel agent and book a heavy guilt trip!
