Mork is employed as a night watchman at a science exhibition where he befriends Chuck, an ailing robot who is scheduled for dismantling because his circuits are failing. Mork programs the robot to play games and talk with him. Chuck begins to experience emotions and follows Mork home to learn about life and why it's worth living. The two buddies proceed to drive everyone around them crazy with their antics.


  • Mindy

    Have you ever heard of the story of Frankenstein?

  • Mork

    Oh, yeah, it's an incredible love story.

  • Mork

    We'll play, um... I Spy, you be Robert Culp, I'll be Bill Cosby, all right?

  • Chuck


  • Mork

    I spy with my little eye, something beginning with the letter A. [Chuck's head spins around] Whoa! Great impression of Linda Blair!

  • Chuck

    Acetylene torch!

  • Mork

    Hot, but no rain!

  • Chuck

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! These emotions are interesting. I'd like to experience more of them... adhesive tape!

  • Mork

    Sticky, but no banana! Chuck, you'll never get emotions if you're cramped up in this tiny cooped-up space all the time! Well, I guess you're not going to guess it. I'll have to tell you... It was air!

  • Chuck

    Oh, but it's supposed to be something you can see! You can't see air!

  • Mork

    Ah, then you've never been to Los Angeles.
