Lola, Mork's munchkin friend from the day care center, suggests that Mindy apply at the small television station managed by her uncle, Miles Sternhagen. She is hired by Sternhagen to do odd jobs and fill in on-camera when necessary. Her first assignment is to do the evening weather report. Mork urges her to do an interplanetary version and makes some calls to prepare strange weather charts. At the station, Mork and Mindy learn from Jake, the cameraman, that no one else has arrived because of a snowstorm. Mindy is to do the whole evening news show. She panics when Mork throws her the packet of news material - and the papers scatter all over the floor. Mindy has a disastrous on-camera debut until Mork leaps to a riotous rescue with his far-out Orkan presentation of the evening news.


  • Mork

    [bringing in Lola and Stephanie] And if you're real good, I'll take you to see Popeye again.

  • Jeanie

    Doesn't Mork want to celebrate with us?

  • Mindy

    Oh, Mork doesn't drink champagne. He feels it just perpetuates cruelty to grapes.

  • Glenda Faye

    Aw, he's such a such a little snugglepuss! I wish I could buy one somewhere.

  • Mork

    Yes, hello, we have the news from Boulder, Colorado, or as we like to call it, the Mindy City. Ar ar! And now for the news with Walter Morkite. Hello, I'm Walter Morkite, with Dan Mork in London, Morky Rather in Paris, and Michael Mork in women's clothes.

  • Mork

    Did you enjoy Mindy's weather forecast?

  • Mr. Sternhagen

    I never know what I enjoy until the ratings come in. I learned that a long time ago, when I was high... in the network.
