After Kalnik has bombed their apartment, leaving them on the run, Mork and Mindy decide that their only chance to escape him is to go public about Mork's origins. They and son Mearth are interviewed by a television personality named Tom. Afterward, there's a mob scene at their hotel and Mork escapes to the demolished apartment where Mindy finds him. So does Kalnik. In desperation, Mork clicks the heels of his time travel shoes to escape with Mindy to Rome, but the shoes have been damaged and Mork and Mindy wind up with prehistoric tribesmen in a cave.


  • Tom

    So, big fella, you, you--you age backwards, is that it? You--you're really old, but you're really quite young, is that it? So when someone comes up to you and says "Hey, you look pretty good for your age," you have no idea what the heck they're talking about, because I certainly don't! Huh huh huh!

  • Mearth

    What's the matter with him, daddy?

  • Mork

    I don't know, son, I think his eyebrows have put too much pressure on the frontal lobe.

  • Tom

    Excuse me. I'm getting a cue here from my stage manager over there, and uh, well, McConnells, you've been really interesting guests and I'd like to talk to you more about the, uh, mysteries of the universe, but I've got a man in the green room who makes entire cities out of toothpicks and he's putting the finishing touches there on Fort Lauderdale. So, McConnells, uh, goodnight and uh, na-na, noo-noo, or whatever the heck it is you say.

  • Mork

    It doesn't matter, Tom, any way you wanna fly.

  • Tom

    We'll be back in exactly 2 minutes and 5 seconds after we hear from our affiliates across this country, coast to coast.

  • Mearth

    That's it?!! What a gyp! You had Charles Manson on for a whole hour!
