Mindy's father, Fred, sensitive that he is fifteen years older than his wife Cathy, reveals to Mork that he has consulted a plastic surgeon. After Mindy, unaware of what's on Mork's mind, agrees that anyone could use a little improvement, spaceman Mork checks the mirror and decides that years of sitting on his face have left their mark. Mindy is shocked when Lola and Stephanie from the day care center drop by to see how Mork looks because he left his job early to go to a plastic surgeon.


  • Mork

    Well, I guess I could use a little improvement. All those years of sitting on my face is beginning to show. I never should have sat on wicker.

  • Mork

    Is this doctor any good?

  • Woman

    Oh, she certainly is. She helped my husband when he had his crow's feet.

  • Mork

    Oh. Crow's feet, boy, those can really tear up the carpet, can't they? Let me guess, if your husband had crow's feet, you have frog's legs.

  • Woman

    [laughs] No! Actually, I'm getting her nose. [points to a photo in a book]

  • Mork

    Oh, really? You know what I'd say if I were her? 'Waddya wadda do dat for?' [to man recovering from rhinoplasty] I didda mead ta make fudda you.

  • Woman

    What are you having done?

  • Mork

    Well, I'm shootin' the works! I'm gonna have my face tucked, my cheeks pinched and my bags packed.
