    Mr. Bickley

  • Ed Greenberg



Bickley, a commercial artist who lives in the apartment downstairs, has been making life intolerable for Mindy by pounding on his ceiling constantly to complain over the least noise. Mork visits Bickley and manages to misinterpret every nasty threat the artist expresses. When Mork informs Mindy that he has invited Bickley to dinner, she informs Mork, who has never cooked before, that he can prepare the meal, then sits back to enjoy watching the guest steam in disbelief as Mork goes all out to be kind to the impossibly grouchy neighbor, and Mork's version of a home-cooked dinner turns out to be comically disastrous.


  • Mork

    What seems to be the energy problem here?

  • Jack

    I've got a defective album. It's, uh... it's scratched.

  • Mork

    Well, let's try and deal with this in a holistic way. Don't itch it, let it achieve its own energy and heal itself.

  • Mork

    You just have to use kindness. That's how I overcame Mr. Bickley.

  • Mindy

    You went down to see Bickley today?

  • Mork

    Oh, yes, we're the best of friends now!

  • Mindy

    Aw, come on!

  • Mork

    Oh yeah! He said stop by again real soon... by the way, when does hell freeze over?

  • Mindy

    You invited him over, so you fix him dinner!

  • Mork

    Oh! I get it, I've made my bed so I've gotta hang from it.
