Peevee Clones 7 and 2
Mindy's grandmother, Cora, adds a traditional slice of wedding cake to the luggage, and Fred, Mindy's dad, is a nervous wreck about his new son-in-law's driving skills when the newlyweds board the cramped compact egg sent from Ork in lieu of the luxury egg ordered by Mork. After passing meteors and even the asteroid on which Mork's graduation party was held, the bridal couple lands in the futuristic lobby of an Orkan hotel filled with weird space travelers, as well as Orkans, who have never seen an Earth creature before. The onlookers mill around, giggling, poking and photographing Mindy, who is suddenly whisked off by uniformed officers.
[sings opening notes from "Also Sprach Zarathustra"] Boy, that's a catchy tune. I just wish I could remember the words!
Mork, are those special glasses to shield our eyes from the ultraviolet rays?
No, no, Mind, these, I just bought 'em 'cause they're gnarly!
Yeah, that's great, Mork! [pulling Mindy away] Are you crazy? You can't let this man pilot you millions of miles through space! He doesn't even have a driver's license!
Ah, come on now, Pops, come on now! I've been to the four corners of the universe, I've charted 16 solar systems and I can refold a road map correctly.
Well, there's another thing, Mork, Mindy doesn't travel all that well. She got sick in her baby carriage.
Come back, little neener pooters! Oh, come on now, don't worry about her! We're gonna be traveling first class! [electronic beeping sound] It's here, Mind! Oh, boy! Oh, boy, we're gonna go in style! We are gonna go -- [behind the door is a small egg-shaped spaceship]
Aw shazbot, they sent the compact model.
Well, just remember, Mork, that's pretty valuable cargo there.
Aw, you're right. I really am proud of this suitcase.
He meant me.
Oh, oh... don't you worry, your little girl is in very good hands. [Mindy reaches up to touch a button] DON'T TOUCH THAT YOU'LL KILL US ALL!
Well, Mind, this is just like any room on Earth! I mean, lots of rooms I've seen on Earth with floor paper and wall rugs... ceiling chairs... oh, all right, Mind, they screwed it up! I'm sorry! It looks like it was decorated by Fools R Us!
[doorbell rings] Dong ding? They can even screw up a doorbell.
Oh, maybe it's the bellhops with our luggage. Do you tip bellhops here on Ork?
No, no, Mind, they're robots. If you tip them they can't get back on their feet.
