Limited Engagement was the Season 4 opening episode of Mork and Mindy also, the 74th overall episode from the series. Written by Brian Levant, the episode, directed by Bob Claver, originally aired on ABC-TV on October 8, 1981.
After decorating the apartment with flowers, Mork gets down on bended knee and proposes to Mindy. Choosing between logic and emotions, Mindy tells Mork that she cannot marry him, as Mork then asks for 24 hours for her to change her mind.
Mork finally proposes to Mindy, but Mindy rejects him at first. He tries different ways to make her say yes but to no avail. He plans on leaving her since he knows she won't marry him. Eventually Mindy proposes to Mork in order to keep him.
Mork makes his report to Orson, who is none too happy that he and Mindy are going to get married. Mork defies Orson and threatens to abdicate his post for the woman he loves.
Orson signs out and leaves Mork in limbo. The episode ends with Mork, in defiance, not leaving limbo until he is allowed to marry Mindy.
