Mork, without birth certificates or passport, faces deportation unless he marries an American citizen like Mindy or finds someone to adopt him fast. After Mork receives notification, he dons an Uncle Sam costume and a super-patriotic facade to impress Judge Baker at the Department of Immigration, but the judge gives him five days to produce the necessary papers. Mindy offers to marry Mork, but he turns her down. Then his little friend, Jud, mentions adoption. Mork and Mindy consider Mr. Bickley - briefly - as a father for Mork. With time running out, they enlist the help of Exidor, who promises to act normal to try to impress the adoption officer, Miss Kalinowski, into letting him become Mork's dad.

Ohh... it's not a pretty sight, is it? Well, at least they died with their shells on. May you rest in pieces!
Would you put that thing away? There are ladies present!
Son! Is that you?
Morkie! Here's the present I got you. You left it in the other office. Careful, it's still got its claws!
