Nelson Flavor, with aspirations towards the Vice Presidency of the United States, drops by Mindy's apartment to enlist her her help with the women's vote in his district for the upcoming local election. Mindy is miffed by Nelson's sexist attitude when he hires her as an office girl, and Mork as his executive assistant. When Nelson is unable to choose between Mork and Mindy in a staff cut, they agree to compete for the job.


  • Mindy

    Nelson Flavor's my cousin. He's the son of my crazy rich aunt.

  • Mork

    What's a cousin?

  • Mindy

    Somebody who's related to your parents.

  • Mork

    Oh, you've struck a sore note there, Mindy. I'm a test tube baby. Even I'm not related to my parents. Why have I never met this man?

  • Mindy

    Well, he's just so straight... All right, you want to know what he does for a living? He manufactures attache cases.

  • Mork

    Sounds like a brief career. Ah, but that's his bag, though... ar ar!

  • Mindy

    You know, you always have a way of looking at the bright side of things.

  • Mork

    Well, I have to, Mindy, 'cause you see, today I got fired from my job.

  • Mindy

    Oh no, Mork, not another one!

  • Mork

    Yeah, I sold a whoopie cushion to a deaf man.
