Shortly after Mork and Mearth are accidentally cross-beamed home from Ork with someone else's champagne, William Shatner, in metallic bathrobe and en route to the jacuzzi, is also beamed to Earth with Mearth's packages. He lingers along enough to collect his champagne and complain about the beaming problems before he is returned to Ork. Then Mork sets to work on the computer that is to be Mearth's school science project, replacing the diorama that Mindy has been making. When Mindy arrives home from work, she is startled to have the computer greet her by name and offer her a martini. It explains that it is a Modular Integrated Laser Transformer (MILT). As Mork and Mindy are preparing to leave for a television awards banquet, MILT announces it has expanded, and criticizes Mindy's makeup. Then it decides that they can't leave the apartment. They realize that MILT has become so sophisticated and tyrannical that it has decided to hold its creators hostage.


  • Mearth

    Hey! My packages are gone! What a bummer! We gotta get those kinks out of that lousy Orkan beam!

  • Mork

    Oh, we cross-beamed again.

  • William Shatner

    [beaming in] This isn't the jacuzzi. You aren't Roxanne! Gimme my champagne. Gimme those glasse! Wait a second, just one second!... you perspire a lot, don't you? I gotta get a little R & R. Beam me up, Orson! [beaming out]

  • Mork

    Wait a minute! You gotta tell me if they kill off Spock or not!

  • Mearth

    I wonder what he's going to do with Roxanne.

  • Mork

    Anything he wants, son. He's a captain! Come on, let's go work on your science project.

  • Mearth

    Boy, I'm sure glad I didn't get stuck with this dinosaur diorama that Mommy made me.

  • Mork

    Oh, come on now, son, Mom tried. I just didn't have the heart to tell her that on Ork dinosaurs run the garment district.

  • MILT

    You'll adapt in time... after all, you have the rest of your natural lives.

  • Mearth

    The rest of our lives! Oh my gosh! I can't believe it! Not to have ever seen a beach. Not to have ever seen Disneyland. Not to have ever, ever seen my toes!!
