Although Mork doesn't understand charity, he is determined to help Mindy, who is upset that time is running out and she has not raised the money she pledged for Boulder's new children's hospital. Mork tries his Morkathon performance at DaVinci's Restaurant, where he meets Godfrey. At the bus station, Godfrey has Mork attempt various techniques to no avail until he has Mork try a silent, pathetic-looking approach on a passerby. Later, Mork, in tattered bum's clothing, takes a hatful of money to Mindy. She is outraged to learn that he panhandled from her friend, so Mork decides to put the money back into circulation - his own way.


  • Mork

    Min, Min Min Min! Why didn't you tell me that you needed money? I mean you can have anything I own, except for my lips because those are rented.

  • Mork

    Oh! Boy, you're slicker than a Teflon banana peel! Oh, boy, I didn't even know I was had!

  • Glenda Faye

    [licking envelopes] You know, maybe this would be easier if I'd use a sponge.

  • Mindy

    Oh, sorry, Mork took all our sponges down to the river and set them free.

  • Mork

    EUREKA, Mind! [Mindy starts coughing] Mind, what's wrong?

  • Mindy

    I just swallowed a stamp!

  • Mork

    Well, quick, swallow a letter!

  • Mork


  • Mindy

    [testily] Not yet, Mork.

  • Mork

    [sheepishly] OK, Mind.

  • Mindy

    OK, now I'm ready. Mork?

  • Mork


  • Mindy

    I realize that you are a creature from outer space.

  • Mork

    'Creature's' a little rough, isn't it, Mind?

  • Mindy

    Not at the moment.

  • Mork

    Why do I feel like I'm sitting next to Mt. St. Mindy?

  • Mindy

    Now I realize that you are a creature from outer space, but there are certain things that even The Blob wouldn't do.

  • Mork

    Min, what'd I do wrong? I just wanted to raise money for your hospital.

  • Mindy

    I know, Mork, but begging in the bus station where all my friends could see you...

  • Mork

    It wasn't all your friends, Mind, it was just six of 'em! Besides, they were only good for $20.
