Mindy is up for a promotion from Mr. Sternhagen, her boss at the TV station, but gets cold feet because it means she must handle a gossip segment. Mork decides on his own to do some legwork and get Mindy her promotion. Armed with camera and notebook, he moves in on his friends, including Exidor, at DaVinci's Restaurant. Mork, who doesn't understand why people gossip, reveals some hilarious "inside scoops" when he shows and tells all about his friends while subbing for Mindy as host of a local TV show called 'Rumor Has It.' After Mork appears on air with his juicy commentary and juxtapositioned photos, Mr. Sternhagen and Mr. Bickley are the only ones happy with the program.
[talking about his autobiography] Can you imagine the movie it'll make? But who could play me?
Now, let's see... Fabian's too old... Benji's too short... and we can't afford Suzanne Somers.
Don't beat me don't beat me pleeease don't beat me!
Now do you see what can happen when rumors get started?
Well, Mr. Bickley was happy, Mind.
He's one out of the whole town! That's not a great average, Mork! Do you realize how many reputations you could have ruined tonight?
Everyone was real happy when I told them really juicy pieces of gossip, Mind, I mean, I don't understand why I'm right now on the endangered Orkan list! I mean it's not fair, Mind! It's not fair, it's not fair!
Mork, that's because no one likes to hear gossip about themselves!
Oh! I see, it's all right if it's about somebody else! Isn't that a little two-sided, Mind? Whoa, walking up and down the two-sided highway of life! No way! Double truths, double truths, watch out!
Wait a minute. Let me put it to ya this way. How would you like it if I told everyone that you ate eggs?
Mork, where did you get that picture?
Oh, I thought you'd learned by now, Mind, it's none of your business.
Oh! You're right. But you know, Mr. Sternhagen's daughter is really beautiful.
Yeah... but I don't think she gets along with her mother very well.
Why, why would you say that?
Well, when Mrs. Sternhagen came into the restaurant, her daughter ducked under the table and crawled out the back door.
