Mork decks Mindy's living room with flowers for his marriage proposal attempt, but Mindy thinks he is wishing her luck in her effort to get a newscaster's position at the TV station where she works. Mork confers with Exidor, his far-out prophet friend, who advises one of two approaches: Mork can charge into her life on a white horse and ride off with her into the sunset, or he can try the duller way of proposing on bended knee. While Mork is on his knee proposing to a stunned Mindy, her father, Fred, and grandmother, Cora, arrive and whisk her into a family conference. The saddened Mindy realizes she has to weigh her feelings against what's logical. When she tells Mork that she can't marry him, he gets her to agree to give him 24 hours to try to change her mind (with his wildest last-ditch efforts).


  • Exidor

    Mind if I play through?

  • Mork

    Exidor! Is that you?

  • Exidor

    That's what it says on my scorecard. [turns to invisible friend] Try a five iron? Pepe, that's why you're a caddy and I'm on the Tour! [patting the flowers] Always liked playing this course, it's so well-tended.

  • Mork

    Those are for Mindy. I... I tried to propose to her.

  • Exidor

    What did she say?

  • Mork

    Put the roast in the oven.

  • Exidor

    So that's where it goes!

  • Mindy

    It's a beautiful ring! Look at the jewels, they're sparkling! They're glittering... they're moving!

  • Mork

    Those are his little eyes, he's blinking.

  • Mindy

    Him!? It's alive? [she shakes her finger to try to get the ring off]

  • Mork

    Yep. Oh don't do that, you'll give him whiplash! See, the nice thing about it is if you drop him he'll follow you home!
