Remo distractedly advises Mork, who wants to work while traveling, to join the Air Force. Mork is further sold on the idea at the Air Force base by a public relations officer, Lt. Chambers, who thinks he sounds like real officer material and tells him to report to the recruiting office with his identification papers. Mork has none, so he borrows a spare uniform that he thinks is a travel club costume to convince the "leaders" how much fun he would be on one of their trips. Capt. Chapman accepts Mork (Lt. Mork Fromork) as one of the airmen he is assembling for a secret mission. Later with Mindy, Mork describes his trip to a nuclear dump as a crummy vacation spot. Mindy realizes that the company owning the dump is covering up an accident and she and Mork take a tape recorder to the site to get evidence for an expose.


  • Mindy

    You know, there are ways of traveling without spending too much money.

  • Mork

    Well, tell us, Miss Consumer Advocate! Lay a few on me.

  • Mindy

    Well, there are all sorts of clubs that give you discount rates, and in some situations you can even work off your passage.

  • Mork

    Yeah, I'll work my passage 'till it falls off! I can imagine myself on a boat right now. I'll haul some keel! I'll batten down those hatches! I'll cheer up the stern, I'll drink some port and list to starboard!

  • Mork

    Mind, I mean, it's no big deal. I mean, on Ork whenever we have a nuclear accident we just use Nuke-Away!

  • Mindy


  • Mork

    Aw yeah, it comes in Pine scent or that exciting new fragrance... Fusion! It takes the worry out of being radioactive!
