Mork develops an apparent allergy to Mindy that causes him to laugh uncontrollably whenever she is near. While medical student Jeanie DaVinci is discussing allergy shots with Mork, zany Exidor arrives at the deli to invite him to visit his new pad. Later, the allergy worsens and Mork spends the night with Exidor and his invisible girlfriend. Exidor's advice leads Mork to concoct a serum made of Mindy's hair. He takes a massive injection at Mindy's apartment just as her important guests are arriving. The bizarre remedy turns him into a hilarious Orkan version of Mindy - right in the middle of a political reception at which Mindy is introducing her candidate cousin to Boulder bigwigs.


  • Mindy

    Uh, Mork, see, I'm having a political affair tomorrow and these things really aren't quite appropriate.

  • Mork

    Are you kidding? Lumpy said some of his best customers are politicians! He even sold a pair of tight shoes to Earl Butz.

  • Exidor

    Care for some iguana jerky?

  • Mork

    Uh, no, the little tiny claws get caught between my teeth.

  • Mork

    Well, Mindy and I had a good thing going, but because of my allergy, no more.

  • Exidor


  • Mork

    Well, I -- every time I get near her I start laughing.

  • Exidor

    Oh, relax, it may be nothing more than mental illness!

  • Mindy

    I think maybe you're not allergic to me at all. I think maybe you're just afraid of getting too close to someone.

  • Mork

    No, no... I think now you're being real silly. You're being kinda silly there.

  • Mindy

    No, I think it scares you. After all, it still is a new emotion. C'mere.

  • Mork

    What are ya gonna do?

  • Mindy

    I'm going to help you take the worry out of being close.

  • Mork

    Ah no! Oh, oh, no! You keep away from me, boy! Naa-aah!

  • Mindy

    There's nothing in the air that you're allergic to. That's why none of those things worked. You've tried air hoses, nose plugs, allergy shots. Well, now you're going to try a little of me!

  • Mork

    Mmm, no, haha, no no!

  • Mindy

    I'm gonna huuuuug you 'til your eyes pop out!
