A dream leads Mork to fear his emotions are taking over his subconscious because Orkans haven't dreamed since emotions were banished on their planet. Despite Mindy's protestations, Mork determines to lock them up in his head and throw away the key. Mork's lack of feelings is ruining Mindy's birthday, so she deliberately kisses him, unleashing Mork's wild, long-suppressed emotions and the innocent Orkan begins to experience for the first time feelings of love and anger, joy and envy, hope and gratitude, and jealousy and lust. After calming down, Mork is afraid it could happen again if he takes Mindy out for a birthday dinner.
Mork, showing your emotions is healthy!
But Mindy! That's a no-no for a nanu nanu.
