Grandma Cora is on her way to a bash in Nevada with a group of swinging seniors and drops by for a visit with her favorite granddaughter and alien, Mindy and Mork. The live-wire little lady spreads joy wherever she goes, but when three punks mug her in the park, it's like "they let the air out of her life," Mork says. Cora is afraid, and ready to go back home until Mork hits on a plan to square things with the punks. He disguises himself as another little old lady, Clara, then Cora and Clara set out for the park. Mork turns the dastardly deed into a hilarious caper and he and Grandma join forces to even the score.


  • Cora

    Well, Boston is really the best... here, you've got a little something on your face; there... but living with my little sister Mildred is never easy. Well, you know how it is when they're that age, they think they have all the answers. Well, I suppose I was the same way when I was 70. But enough about me, now tell me, what's the poop around here?

  • Mork

    Oh, let's scoop! Ah, we'll dish till dawn! First of all, uh, Mindy got a job, I got a job, Carter lost a job, awww. I wondered why peanut butter was getting so expensive. And uh, Brooke Shields turned 40 on her 15th birthday, coleslaw is hard to re-heat and also they put Walter Cronkite out to stud; watch out grandma!

  • Mork

    Min, I looked through every nook and cranny and I couldn't find Granny!

  • Mindy

    Oh Mork, I just don't understand it! I mean, she was just going to go out and buy a new hat and then come straight back here and get ready for the interview.

  • Mork

    [Native American] Me watch out now! [he lies down with his ear to the floor]

  • Mindy

    What are you doing?

  • Mork

    Listening for thundering beat of sensible shoes.
