Mindy's recently married father, Fred, troubled over his marriage, turns to Mork for Orkan help. Fred reminds Mork that his early relationship with Mindy involved some rough moments - for instance, the time Mork took Mindy to Exidor's mountain retreat and they nearly froze to death, and the time Mork naively started a wild brouhaha with Mindy thinking it would be fun to kiss and make up. Fred also helps the pair recall Mork releasing his pent-up emotions for the first time, and Mork's first meeting with his strange friend, Exidor. Fred then begins to realize that Mork is right about love between two people mattering more than their differences.

This is a "clip show" featuring elements from the episodes Skyflakes Keep Falling on My Head, Stark Raving Mork, Mork's Mixed Emotions, Mork Runs Away, and Mork vs. the Necrotons.


  • Fred

    What IS that?

  • Mork

    Stewed narconium. I'm fixing Mindy an authentic Orkan dinner.

  • Fred

    Narconium? That sounds like some sort of chemical.

  • Mork

    Oh, it is. You see, you Earthlings load up your food with chemicals. We Orkans have totally eliminated the food.
