While dejected Mork is confessing to Mindy that he has lost another job, eight Pony Express cheerleaders drop in at the New York Deli. Impressed that the girls are paid to cheer up people, Mork asks for a job and they suggest that he apply at the Broncos' headquarters. A couple of the cheerleaders even coach him in their routines. Upon returning from Denver, Mork reports that his application was filed in a wastebasket. Mindy's cousin, Nelson, takes up this case of sex discrimination as his election campaign platform, beginning by getting himself and Mork interviewed on television. Mork creates a high-altitude uproar when he joins the stunning women of the Denver Broncos' Pony Express as pro football's first male cheerleader and prances before 70,000 cheering fans in Denver's Mile High Stadium.
Well, if you get the job, you've just gotta understand the social ramifications.
Well, I know about ramifications, that's why Mary had a little lamb.
All I want to do, Mindy, is make Susan B. Anthony stand up and cheer!
Susan B. Anthony is dead.
No wonder she looks so bad on that little dollar.
I don't know why you want that job. I mean, a real man just doesn't do girlie things.
Oh yeah? Try and tell that to Roosevelt Greer as he needlepoints on your nose!
