Mork admits to Exidor, his doctor, that he has developed cravings for things like Teflon and bananas. Mork is feeling strange when an egg emerges through his navel. Thrilled, he takes baby pictures of the egg on a fuzzy blanket. Them, when Mindy arrives home from working on the famous Hammond family's TV special starring Mork's favorites, Donna and Mario, he tells her of the blessed event. Mindy, however, is more interested in celebrating the anniversary of their first month of marriage than in discussing starting a family. Mork misunderstands and tearfully tries to place their "child" with the All-American Hammond family - with disastrous results. By the time Mork convinces the stunned Mindy that they are going to be parents, the egg begins to grow to giant proportions. Mr. Bickley knocks at their door, hoping to share his romantic woes, and hears loud cracking sounds from the bedroom. The egg bursts open and out pops their full-grown, middle-aged-looking son.
Can we, can we, can we, keep 'im, hm? Can we, Mindy, can we, hm? Can we, Mindy, hm?
But of course we'll keep it, Mork! I mean, I'd love anything you and I made together.
You weren't too crazy about that bookcase.
[gasps as she sees Mork sitting atop a huge egg, knitting]
Didn't know I could knit, huh? Amazing with a little love, how much you can grow.
What is in that egg?
I don't know, Mind, but I hope it's healthy.
When do you think it's gonna arrive?
Well, by the look, about twenty-four hours.
Twenty-four hours? But humans get nine months! Elephants get two years! I get twenty-four hours!? It takes longer than that to get Peking duck!
