Mindy finds her Orkan friend dividing up household items because he's been reading divorce statistics which say the odds are against a couple staying together. Mork is further convinced when he goes to lunch with Mr. Bickley at Boulder's New York Delicatessen and sees proprietor Remo DaVinci and his sister Jean engaged in a verbal battle. Bickley loves it and reminisces about his fights with his ex-wife. At home, Mork decides fighting would keep the excitement flowing in his relationship with Mindy -- especially when he learns about kissing and making up -- so he gleefully starts a squabble with her. She bursts into tears and storms into her room, only to emerge furious in order to throw Mork out of the apartment.


  • Mork

    We've got nothing to fear but sanity itself!

  • Mindy

    You've got nothin' to worry about!

  • Mindy

    Hey, listen, do you want to meet me for lunch this afternoon?

  • Mork

    Well, no. You see, Mr. Bickley invited me down to the mall, to this new Italian restaurant called Delicontessa!

  • Mindy

    I think that's "delicatessen."

  • Mork

    [Italian accent] Doesn't sound very Italian to me.

  • Mindy

    It's owned by my girlfriend Jeanie and her brother. Bickley took me there to lunch there last week, and would you believe he stuck me with lunch?

  • Mork

    Hope you didn't have shish kabob. Ar ar!

  • Mork

    Min, Miniminimin-min... that was the best fight I've ever seen! Was it good for you, too? Come on now, it's time to kiss and make up!

  • Mindy

    Kiss and make up?! I wouldn't kiss you if you were the only alien on earth!

  • Mork

    I think I am.

  • Mindy

    Well, there's your proof! So, you don't like my cooking, huh? Well, if you don't like it, why don't you get off your face and cook something for yourself!
