Mork learns the human facts of life when he meets Mindy's friend Sally, who is expecting her baby soon. Mork, reared by an iron-clawed computer, envies the unborn child and decides that mothers have the most important job on Earth. Meanwhile, Mindy's former fiance, Dan, has re-entered her life, pressing for marriage and babies. Mindy is tempted to accept, but doesn't know what it would be like to have a child. She finds out when Mork, troubled by the fact that he never had a real mom, uses his Orkan age machine to revert to a three-year-old and takes Mindy as his newly adopted mother. Suddenly Mindy has a noisy child in the attic while Dan is present.


  • Mork

    Can I get you something to sit on? Here! Here's my footstool.

  • Mindy

    Now that's a great idea! A footstool that's shaped like a foot!

  • Mork

    Wait 'til you see the end tables I ordered.

  • Sally

    Oh, I just felt a kick!

  • Mork

    Someone kicked you? It must have been hit and run!

  • Mindy

    Mork! Her baby kicked her.

  • Mork

    Why? What did she do to it?

  • Mindy

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

  • Mork

    There's a baby in there? You're trying to jive my socks off! There's a real live ka al lala... whoa! Shazbot! Kids get in the darndest places!

  • Mindy

    You must have fallen asleep while watching TV.

  • Mork

    Well, if I was asleep then the TV was watching me.
