Mork and Mindy are in for a spirited Halloween when ghosts from Mindy's past create hilarious havoc in the house. Mork is alone redecorating the old house for sale - with Mr. Bickley as a prospective buyer - when terrifying events occur, and a voice orders him to get out. Mindy insists that there is a logical explanation, and is satisfied that everything is normal when they find Exidor and his invisible friends vacationing in a closet. After Exidor leaves, the house "attacks" Mork and Mindy, prompting them to run for it. Mork becomes possessed when they return to the house at night to meet Bickley and are trapped there. Mork goes wild when spooky spirits cause the couple to resort to outrageous schemes to battle the powerful forces that make furniture topple, strange winds blow and rooms change color.
See those marks on the door? That was how tall I was each birthday from two to thirteen.
We have the same thing on Ork, except they tattoo it on the back of our head.
Mork! Will you come out and tell me what's the matter?
Oh, nothing much. Just your house tried to attack me, that's all!
Come on, Mork, now really!
What do you mean, 'come on, really', Mindy?! Mindy, I'm telling you the truth! While I was at the house, I was hanging wallpaper and a wind blew me across the room! Then it got real cold, then it got real hot, and then a swarm of bees came in, then a swarm of flies, and then I ran flamboyantly screaming to the window, 'a-a-a-ah', and it slammed shut! Then, this is the terrifying part, I was standing there and the furniture started attacking me! Yes! A little ottoman, and a little ottowoman too, they were coming at me! And the armchair couldn't keep its hands to itself! This is the really bad part, a strange voice kept crying out, 'Geeeet out of HEEEEERE!' And by the time it said 'here,' I was here.
Have you been hitting the cream soda again?
Exidor! Thank God somebody normal is here!
It's all beginning to make sense now! You kicked me out, so you could vacation in there yourself!
