With Mindy depressed about not getting a scholarship, it's up to Mork to stir up some laughs, so he brings home a friend who claims to be the real Peter Pan - with the power to fly as just one of his magical talents. Peter, a patient at a psychiatric hospital, is overjoyed that Mork, unlike pessimistic fellow patient Sid and others, believes him. In turn, Peter readily accepts the fact that Mork is from the planet Ork. When naive Mork tries to take Peter with him to cheer up Mindy, Nurse Tula explains that the patients have to be locked up at night for safety. Later, Mork misunderstands Mindy's explanation about humans being locked up and sneaks back to the hospital at night to free Peter - with the help of Orkan magic and sprinkles of fairy dust - and takes him home to Mindy.
Pedro! Oh my ol' penpal, quill buddy, paper mate! Oh, this is some swell kinda place! They gave me a tour, it was incredible! I mean, that rubber wallpaper, whoa, how convenient. And those coats too! You can hug yourself all day, it's wonderful! Look at that! [points at the windows] Industrial strength screens, you must have some big sucker mosquitoes out there! The type that are on steroids, going "Heeeere I'm comin'!" That's wonderful! Hey, this is my kind of town!
Well, what's your secret?
I'm Peter Pan.
Peter Pan? But you sign all of your letters Peter Panowski.
That's just a cover, you see, because nobody's left out there that believes in Peter Pan.
See, I'm the real Peter Pan. You know? [flying noises]
Oh, wait one millibleem! You mean the Peter Pan who could fly? And who lost his shadow? Who was chased by Captain Hook? Who got swallowed by the alligator that had a clock in his stomach for fifty years? What's not to believe?!
Oh, Mork! You believe in me! You believe in me!
Ah wait, wait one minute there, I'm not just some shucker. Come on now, wait a minute, Peter Pan was a boy who never grew up.
Oh, that's me! The little guy's still inside.
[putting his ear to Peter's stomach] Oh, and it sounds like he's got gas!
I come from a place far, far away, where the plants are as intelligent as the people, and the sky is yellow and brown.
What would you say if I told you I come from a planet called Ork?
I'd say welcome!
Oh, at last! You know where we come from, we say nanu nanu!
What does that mean?
Well, it's a lot nicer than the old greeting.
Yo! Lizard thighs!
I love laughter! You know, I try to get everyone to laugh here at least once a day. Sid's two years behind.
