A seductive agent from another planet romances Mork in an effort to learn about Earth customs. The beautiful but deadly agent is sent to Earth by the Necrotons, planet Ork's arch-enemies, and she uses all of her natural talents to romance Mork into spilling all he knows about Earth customs so the Necrotons can launch an invasion. Mork is warned of the arrival of an enemy spaceship on Earth by his Orkan leader, Orson, who doesn't know what Necrotons look like, but assures Mork that they can only survive for twenty-four hours in Earth's atmosphere. Since Orkans are pacifists, he advises Mork to hide. Captain Nirvana and her assistants, Sutra and Kama, crash into Mindy's apartment. Nirvana imprisons Mindy in an invisible force shield and has Mork removed to her spaceship's chamber of pleasures. Mork panicks when he realizes that the captain is aware that Orkans can't stand intense physical pleasure and she is about to use this knowledge to force him to talk.


  • Mork

    Sorry I'm late, I was out polling the neighborhood.

  • Mindy

    Why are you so out of breath?

  • Mork

    Well, it was a gallop poll.

  • Nelson

    Well, did you get a good cross section?

  • Mork

    Well, I didn't want to discourage you, so I just polled your friends.

  • Nelson

    Must have been pretty one-sided.

  • Mork

    Yeah, it doesn't look good.

  • Mindy

    Mork!... Mork, are you home? Mork... [she sits down]

  • Mork

    Ahhhhhhhh! [Mork emerges from under the couch cushions] Mind! It's all right for me to sit on my face, but I don't think you can!

  • Mindy

    Mork, do something!

  • Mork

    I am, Mind! I'm shaking as fast as I can!
