Mork, who is unaccustomed to Earth hospitals and surgery, visits with Mindy in the children's wing, where she has been placed in a room with little Susie because of overcrowding. When he later returns, he finds a sedated stranger in Mindy's bed and another girl, Patti, in the second bed. The new nurse is far from reassuring in her remarks, nor is hospital administrator Burnett, to whom Mork frantically appeals for help in finding the missing Mindy. After visiting hours, Mork goes back in disguise. He finds Mindy in another room with Virginia, heavily sedated, listed under another name and scheduled for brain surgery instead of the tonsillectomy she checked in for.


  • Mork

    Buntu, Kimbe, stay with the caravan! All right, all you germs bite the dust! C'mon now! Die, you little buggers, die! There you go! C'mon, hyah! You there, with the hamburger! Freeze, right there! Drop it, drop it! Spread those buns, spread the buns! All right, I have a right to read your rights... you have the right to remain bacillus... Hey, hey hey, hey! You saw him, that germ pulled a gun! You saw it, didn't you?

  • Remo

    Come on, what are you doing? Will you cut it out?

  • Mork

    Well, Mindy's going in the hospital and I have to kill all the germs. Hey, you behind the gherkin! Freeze it! Ha ha! There's another streptococcus that bit the small one!

  • Jeanie

    Wait a minute, wait a minute, there aren't any germs in here!

  • Mork

    Of course there are no germs in here, after my Spritzkrieg! Ha ha! In the name of Louis Pasteur, I... wait a minute. I just committed germicide! There must be millions of little germs at home going, 'Where's daddy?'

  • Susie

    Now, I'm all full of bubbles! If you push my stomach you could probably feel them.

  • Mork

    Oh, no way! I saw 'Alien!'

  • Mindy

    Well, I gotta go, Mork, I gotta have some more blood tests.

  • Mork

    Well, good luck Mind, I hope you pass! Don't let anyone cheat and look over your shoulder and see your corpuscles!

  • Mork

    Well, Miss McConnell, we'll have you out of here in a fribbit!

  • Virginia

    A fribbit?

  • Mork

    Yes, a medical term meaning a surrey with a fringe on top.

  • Virginia

    That girl's name isn't McConnell, it's McDonald.

  • Mork

    No, no, no, my dear lady, I'm a doctor. I don't make mistakes, unless it's a matter of life or death or a bill.

  • Virginia

    The nurse that was just here said that's Mrs. McDonald. She's in here for brain surgery.

  • Mork

    No no, she's here to have her tonsils out.

  • Virginia

    I guess it depends on how deep they drill!
