Mork is engulfed in homesickness and self-pity when Mr. Bickley drops by to invite him and Mindy to meet his son, Tom, an inspirational young singer who is sightless and believes his father has rejected him because of his handicap. Tom is in Boulder to perform at a club. When they arrive at Bickley's apartment, Tom is alone with his guide dog and has received a call that his father, whom he has not seen in twelve years, will join him at the club. Mork, who has never seen a blind person before, and Mindy accompany Tom to the club. When Tom receives a message that his father has been called out of town, he seems to handle the disappointment so well that Mork asks if Tom will show him how to live life to the fullest.


  • Mindy

    I guess I never should've taken you horseback riding, huh?

  • Mork

    Lots of fun, Mind, really, except when I fell off the horse and he dragged me for two miles.

  • Mindy

    Why didn't you let go?

  • Mork

    Well, at $12 an hour it didn't seem right.

  • Mindy

    Believe me, Mork, this is supposed to be one of the finest vacation spots in New Mexico.

  • Mork

    I believe you, Mind. I mean, two million scorpions can't be wrong.

  • Mork

    Mind, I finally figured out why that vacation was gopher gunk. I didn't go far enough away from where I work.

  • Mindy

    Mork, we drove all the way to New Mexico.

  • Mork

    No, I mean REALLY away. I've talked to Orson and I've got to go to another planet, far far far away!

  • Mindy

    You mean you are going to leave Earth? Where are you going to go?

  • Mork

    Well, I've written up a little itinerary.

  • Mindy

    The planet Murowr?

  • Mork

    Well, they say it's got a great nightlife!

  • Mindy

    The planet Hm-Hm-Hm?

  • Mork

    Yup-yup-yup! It's a party planet, Mind! The fun and frolic never stop and the atmosphere is 98 per cent nitrous oxide!

  • Mindy

    So, you like it better right here in your own body, huh?

  • Mork

    Yeah... there's no place like Mork, Mind.
