Mindy complains about Robin Williams' inaccessibility to her boss, Mr. Sternhagen, when she has to interview the comedian to keep her job. He retorts that Williams not only performed for nothing at the local Comedy Cabaret but also introduced himself to everyone during lunch at DaVinci's Restaurant. Mork later shows up at the restaurant, where he is mistaken for Williams. Mobbed and with his clothes tattered, Mork believes people have discovered he is an alien. Mork disguises himself for protection to accompany Mindy on her desperate final attempt to interview Robin at the auditorium where he is performing. Once there, Mork has a hilarious nose-to-nose encounter with the famous star.
Oh, Mork, I'm so excited! Dewey Fishbeck, our feature writer, is out with the mumps, and Mr. Sternhagen, my boss, wants me to interview... you'll never guess who!
Ahhh, let me try, um... Rula Lenska?
No. Give up?
Yeah, I don't know who it is. Who is it, who is it, who who who, Min, who who?
What's so funny about that?
Does he really call himself Robin?
Do you know what 'Robin' means on Ork?
No. [Mork whispers something in Mindy's ear] Oh, that's disgusting!
Don't look at me, I didn't give him that smutty name! Parents must've had a sense of humor, though, Min.
I have another question right now, a little fashion by-line... why do you wear baggy pants?
I don't want visible pantyline.
There's your headline right there, Mind. "Robin Williams... Kinky!"
Well, you're a member of the Brotherhood of the Bozo. Why do you wear them?
Oh! That's where I keep my bees.
