When Mearth goes off fishing with his Grandpa Fred, Mork misses him so much that Mindy must remind him that they now have time to get re-acquainted following Mearth's birth. Mork tries to dazzle her with a Moroccan feast - complete with a belly dancer - that ends in disarray. After a disastrous evening with Fatima, the dancer, and burned shish kebab, Mork and Mindy seem to have nothing to say to each other. Mork is downcast until an exterminator advises going back to the roots, and Mork leaps at the chance to plan another romantic surprise.


  • Mindy

    We could really use the time together. You think about it, Mork, the baby was born as soon as we got married, so we never have had an opportunity to spend any time together as just husband and wife.

  • Mork

    Yeah, but I'm still gonna miss the little bugger-poo.

  • Mindy


  • Mork

    Him sneaking around with his little Polaroid trying to take pictures of us in compromising positions.

  • Mindy

    Uh-huh. Yeah, I'm gonna miss waking up to "Mommy, how come you look so different in the morning?"

  • Mork

    And when I go to the park, who's going to push me on the swing?

  • Mindy

    Boy, listen to us. I think there's more to our marriage than just being parents. Just think, we can spend a whole week together, just the two of us. Ya got any ideas?

  • Mork

    Well, there's an exciting new series on TV where the Osmond family plays the Donner Party.

  • Mork

    Speciality of the house: the shish kebab!

  • Mindy

    Oh, Mork!

  • Mork

    Or in the very elegant restaurants: shish keRobert. All right, it's the beginning, we must add some more spices, little brandy there, hmm-mm-mm! Can never have too much of this on there, huh? Yeah--nah--WAIT a minute!

  • Mindy

    Mork, is that supposed to be on fire like that?

  • Mork

    Well, it's kind of academic, Mind, because it is now! Don't panic, I know how to deal with this, don't panic at all. FIRE!!!! FIRE!!!!
