Mork is frightened by a hard-sell insurance salesman who warns him about accidents in an attempt to sell Mork an insurance policy. Mindy arrives in time to prevent Mork from signing, but he is still frightened in spite of her explanation and wants to back out of a vacation to Yellowstone with Mindy, Nelson and Glenda Faye. At DaVinci's restaurant, Mork hears about pollution and encounters Exidor. When Mork crawls into a glass habitat right in the middle of Mindy's living room, vowing never to emerge, Mindy decides to "fight bizarre with bizarre" by staging an unusual party for him.


  • Mindy

    See, I'm going to ignore all this, I'm going to go the store and buy some hiking boots. And you are coming with me on that trip.

  • Mork


  • Mindy

    Well, you've overlooked one vital statistic. The statistics say that more accidents occur in the home than any place else, so think how much safer you'll be with me in Yellowstone. Ha ha ha!

  • Mork

    Ha ha ha! I'm not safe out there... I'm not safe in here... I'm not safe anywhere! I want my test tube!

  • Mindy

    Mork, I got the hiking boots. What are the lights out for?

  • Mork

    I couldn't reach the switch, Mind.

  • Mindy

    What do you mean, you couldn't reach the switch? [she turns on the light and sees that Mork has enclosed himself in a clear room] What in the world is that!

  • Mork

    It's a survival condo, Mind! I finally found a place where I'm safe. I'm never coming out.

  • Mindy

    This is ridiculous!

  • Mork

    No, Mind! It's a hermetically-sealed, germ-free antiseptic life support unit. It's kinda like a womb with a view!
