Mork attends a Committee to Clean Up Boulder meeting, and learns that the last thing they care about is ecology - and Mindy is one of their targets. After Mork convinces the group (led by Jim Blake, Helen Anderson and Lloyd Prescott) of Nelson's "purity", they agree to meet him at Mindy's apartment the next day. Mindy is outraged when she realizes their purpose, and announces that she and her cousin Nelson are part Polish and throws them out - along with impressionable Mork, who has begun to tell ethnic jokes, not realizing that they are used as a weapon by hate groups. After Mindy sets Mork straight, they return to her apartment to find it wrecked.
What did you do with my posters?
Well, the whole posters didn't fit in my parade concept so they're in little pieces. But don't worry, they're all numbered here, and here's a part that only a mother could love!
Oh, what's the use? No one knows who I am!
Well, look at the bright side... you can make a total fool out of yourself and no one would care. I mean, you could go on national televison and go, "My fellow Americans, I'd like to show you the dancing weasel."
There's one thing that confuses me though, Mind. I mean, aren't there any people on earth who are lazy, shiftless, pushy, dumb, and inscrutable?
Of course there are, but--but in every race, creed and color. Aren't there people like that on Ork?
Not any more. They sent me here.
