Mork, Mindy, and Mrs. Fowler of the day care center appeal to wealthy Mr. Simpson to renew the center's lease. But the property is needed for a parking lot for the roller disco Simpson has turned over to his son, Wheels, who cares only for skating. Simpson suggests that Mork talk with Wheels. At the rink, Mork taunts Wheels, an egotistical bully, into agreeing to race the Rockies on skates. If Mork wins, the day care center will be spared. It's the biggest, funniest roller marathon ever when Mork takes to skates for the first time to race a cheating champion skater down a Rocky Mountain peak into Boulder to save the day care center at which he works from destruction.


  • Mindy

    Oh, what's wrong?

  • Mork

    Mind... you see this finger?

  • Mindy


  • Mork

    That's the only part of my body that doesn't hurt, and that's because I think it's a clean break.

  • Mindy

    Let me help you.

  • Mork

    Oh, oho, ouch... Hello, Fred.

  • Fred

    Mork, you look terrible.

  • Mork

    I was all right, Fred, until I skinned my eyes.

  • Fred

    Well, I really admire your spirit. Six hours of training?

  • Mindy

    Where'd you go?

  • Mork

    You wouldn't believe this, but I went all the way around the block!

  • Mindy

    How many times?

  • Mork


  • Mork

    I gotta do it for the kids! And besides, I can't lose, mm-mm, no way.

  • Mindy

    Why can't you lose?

  • Mork

    Well, because this is the land of the home, free of the brave! Because the good guys always win, and that's me!

  • Fred

    Who says the good guys always win?

  • Mork

    Oh, Fred, movies, television! I mean, it's the American way! When was the last time you saw Genghis Khan ride off into the sunset? [John Wayne] All right, you little Mongols, head your little ponies up! Or when's the last time you saw Peter Lorre ride off into the sunset? [sings like Peter Lorre] Happy traaails to yoooou... until we meet again, you're very pretty.
