Mork is intrigued by the voting procedure in a democracy. After learning from Mindy that at least three votes are needed to break a tie, Mork meets Sergei, a young student cellist recently immigrated from Russia who is looking for a place to stay, and moves him into Mindy's apartment to resolve their domestic voting problem. Amazed to learn that he and Sergei are among thousands of aliens in this country, Mork joins his new friend for the annual registration, throwing the immigration bureau into total confusion.


  • Mindy

    So, what do you think? How do you like my new face?

  • Sergei

    Boy, what great country. You don't like face, you get new one!

  • Mork

    Same face, new paint job.

  • Mindy

    I pay the rent and I say he can't stay!

  • Mork

    Oh, I see! The one with the money controls the votes.

  • Mork

    Whoa, this pen's on a leash! What's wrong, did you write a bad check?

  • Clerk

    Now whaddya want?

  • Mork

    Oh, he told me to take it to the nice clerk, but since she's busy I'll talk to you.
