Mindy bridles when Fred mentions that he and her new surprise stepmother, Cathy, may move back to his old house in Boulder. That night, Mork goes to Mindy's room to talk about a wedding present, but she doesn't want to discuss it. After he leaves, Mindy dreams of being a little girl again with her father, who is trying to explain her mother's death. Mork hears Mindy crying in her sleep for her mother and goes to comfort her. When Mindy admits she's a little jealous of Cathy, Mork takes Cathy out so Mindy and Fred can have a talk. When Mork and Cathy return, Mindy flares up when Cathy sits in her mother's chair. Afterwards, Mork decides to use Orkan psychology to learn the cause of Mindy's behavior.
You know, I feel like a million dollars. I've got a great job, and a terrific wife, and a beautiful daughter...
The cloud around my silver lining.
You know, I want to get something for the both of them. Maybe a negligee built for two!
Oh! They'll like that!
Well, they say sometimes when a father remarries, the daughter feels threatened by the other woman.
Why? 'Cause she's wearing exploding underwear? Fruit of the boom?
