Mindy tries to convince Mork that people are taking advantage of him because he believes anything he hears. While Mork is alone at the music store, Officer Boyd pursues Dittman, an escaped car thief, into the store and handcuffs him to a rail while he chases an accomplice. Dittman convinces Mork that he only wanted to see his sick mother for the last time, and promises to return the next day. Mork zaps off his handcuffs and has to face the music when Boyd returns.


  • Mork

    Oh, therefore if I think the sky is falling, ipso facto I am gullible.

  • Mindy

    Yeah, I'm afraid so. Like yesterday, when you heard that TV commercial that said to run out and catch a bus, and you started building a trap.

  • Mork

    I would have caught one too. I was going to use a segregated school as bait!

  • Mork

    Boy, a coat! Just what I've always wanted!

  • Mindy

    Oh, come on! You should put it on and get dressed and go out and observe the snow. It'll be a whole new experience.

  • Mork

    Are you sure those sky flakes won't bash my brains out?

  • Mindy

    I promise you, it's perfectly safe. Come here, I wanna show you something... don't be afraid! Look.

  • Mork

    Whoa! It's cold and beautiful!... and not housebroken.

  • Mork

    But I know he'll come back! He promised!

  • Exidor

    Mork, the man lied to you, just as those crummy Venusians lied to me!

  • Mork

    I know, you can't trust a man with four lips. All you get is double talk.
