While Mindy is working as production coordinator on a new TV call-in show featuring Dr. Lincoln, Mork purchases a Maid-O-Matic appliance from Exidor to make housework easier. The new appliance has spewed food in all directions by the time Bickley drops by and advises Mork to call Mindy for advice on how to run the apartment. Otherwise, he warns, Mindy may leave him. Mork phones, breaking into the call-in program, and Mindy nearly gets fired. Later, Mindy complains to Dr. Lincoln that Mork has now over-adjusted to her working, and is waiting on her hand and foot.


  • Mindy

    What a morning to be late! Oh, I'd like to get my hands on the guy who invented the snooze alarm!

  • Mork

    Oh, Mind, let me help you with those suckers, come on, now, hon! That's all right. Ngyuh! Ha-ha, there we go!

  • Mindy

    Thanks, Mork, but I was trying to put the boot on!

  • Mork

    Oh... I guess we started off the day on the wrong foot, huh? Ar ar ar! Well, Mind, I'm really famished! I feel like Gandhi at a McDonalds! Come on, now, I feel like I could eat an aardvark's tongue. Come on now, Mind!

  • Mindy

    Sorry, Mork, but I'm production coordinator on a new show today and I've got to be at the studio in ten minutes.

  • Mork

    Well, Mind, you can fix me a minute steak. That'll give ya nine minutes to spare.

  • Mindy

    I'm afraid you're going to have to fix your own breakfast today, and maybe dinner too. It might be another late night.

  • Mork

    Min, Min, Min, Min... whoa, red light, whoa! Stop, kemo sabe! Listen, you want moi to cook?

  • Mindy

    Yeah, you're a big Orkan now, I think you can handle yourself in the kitchen and maybe cleaning up around here too.

  • Mork

    Min, Min, Min... I draw the line right there! I will not cook, clean or do windows! I am man, watch me sit!

  • Exidor

    My, my, my... isn't this a delightful home. [to his invisible friend] Don't rush me! I'll get to the sales pitch! [to Mork] Good morning, sir or madam, we represent the Exidor-to-Door Company! Exclusive distributors of these thing-a-ma-jigs!

  • Mork

    I'm sorry, Exidor, but I already have a thing-a-ma-jig.

  • Exidor

    All right, all right! I'll tell him what it does! And why? Because this miracle of modern technology can do everything a maid can do, except steal the silverware. And next week we're putting out an attachment for that!
