Mindy secretly takes over a newspaper lonely hearts column. When lonely Jeanie writes to the columnist wondering how to meet a sensitive guy with whom to share mutual interests, Mindy, who recognizes the letter, and Mork try to help her without letting her know that they know. While Jeanie is closing the deli at night, Mork shows up and announces he wants to walk her home because they have so much in common. Meanwhile, Mindy has written a column answer for Jeanie, pointing out that the man she is looking for may be someone familiar but shy. She advises Jeanie to reach out to him. When Mork sees another letter expressing the hope that Jeanie's heartthrob will get serious about the romance, he vows to give her his version of "serious" in their relationship.


  • Mindy

    OK, how would a highly evolved being answer this one? Dear Miss Lonely Hearts, I found a pair of pantyhose in my husband's pocket. Should I be worried?

  • Mork

    Don't panic! They may not be his.

  • Mork

    Whoa! You've got a dirty dish collection too!

  • Jeanie

    Oh, you collect dirty dishes?

  • Mork

    Yeah, for about a week, and then Mindy makes me clean it up.

  • Mindy

    Why are you building a tower of Cheerios?

  • Mork

    Because it's hard to stack oatmeal.
