    Spacesuit [voice]


In his confusion over the meaning of love - because emotions have been done away with on Ork - Mork turns to Mindy for counsel. She advises him that if he wants to be like an Earth person he will have to experience the emotion himself. Mork gathers more information on the subject from Mindy's grandmother, Cora Hudson, and from his main munchkin pal Eugene. Thus educated, Mork falls madly in love with a shapely blonde, to Mindy's dismay.


  • Mindy

    Mork, you talk to your spacesuit?

  • Mork

    Of course! It spoke first, I'd be rude not to reply.

  • Mindy

    Oh, how'd your observation of traffic go today?

  • Mork

    Oh, not very well. Why do they call it "rush hour" when nothing moves?

  • Mindy

    Mork, you can't love an inanimate object.

  • Mork

    Why not? You say you love your book.

  • Mindy

    That's different.

  • Mork

    And you said you loved "Here Comes the Fleet."

  • Mindy

    That's different, too!

  • Mork

    Isn't my love for Dolly different?

  • Mindy

    That's TOO different!
