Mindy, weary of having to do all the driving errands after work, attempts to give Mork a driving lesson in their Jeep, but he and Mearth wear out her patience with their fun and games. She then presses for driving school. Mork's hip friend, Todd Norman Taylor, shows up as the instructor, and unnerves his pupil with talk about traffic accidents. It causes Mork to have a nightmare. Later at the Department of Motor Vehicles, Mork comes unglued when he meets examiner S. Devlin, a dead ringer for the satanic figure in his dream. Terror-stricken Mork believes the examiner assigned to give him the driving test is an incarnation of the devil, and careens along the test course in a spectacular tilted wheelie.


  • Mindy

    Mork, you know, it'd be a lot easier for all of us if you would learn how to drive.

  • Mork

    Min, you want me to drive some primitive Earth vehicle financed by the government? Come on now. Min, Min, that'd be like asking the great Pele to play soccer with a BB.

  • Mindy

    Mork, look at it this way. What if something happened to Mearth during the day, like a real emergency? What would you do?

  • Mork

    Well, I'd do what I always do... fall apart.

  • Mearth

    Listen, daddy, I was just thinking... maybe I could fix you a nice big hot cup of cocoa with a marshmallow in it, and maybe a goldfish sandwich!

  • Mearth

    I know, no mustard.
