Mork develops an apparent allergy to Mindy that causes him to laugh uncontrollably whenever she is near. While medical student Jeanie DaVinci is discussing allergy shots with Mork, zany Exidor arrives at the deli to invite him to visit his new pad. Later, the allergy worsens and Mork spends the night with Exidor and his invisible girlfriend. Exidor's advice leads Mork to concoct a serum made of Mindy's hair. He takes a massive injection at Mindy's apartment just as her important guests are arriving. The bizarre remedy turns him into a hilarious Orkan version of Mindy - right in the middle of a political reception at which Mindy is introducing her candidate cousin to Boulder bigwigs.
Uh, Mork, see, I'm having a political affair tomorrow and these things really aren't quite appropriate.
Are you kidding? Lumpy said some of his best customers are politicians! He even sold a pair of tight shoes to Earl Butz.
Care for some iguana jerky?
Uh, no, the little tiny claws get caught between my teeth.
Well, Mindy and I had a good thing going, but because of my allergy, no more.
Well, I -- every time I get near her I start laughing.
Oh, relax, it may be nothing more than mental illness!
I think maybe you're not allergic to me at all. I think maybe you're just afraid of getting too close to someone.
No, no... I think now you're being real silly. You're being kinda silly there.
No, I think it scares you. After all, it still is a new emotion. C'mere.
What are ya gonna do?
I'm going to help you take the worry out of being close.
Ah no! Oh, oh, no! You keep away from me, boy! Naa-aah!
There's nothing in the air that you're allergic to. That's why none of those things worked. You've tried air hoses, nose plugs, allergy shots. Well, now you're going to try a little of me!
Mmm, no, haha, no no!
I'm gonna huuuuug you 'til your eyes pop out!
