Plot summaryEdit

When Mr. Sternhagen is fired, Mindy discovers her job is in jeopardy. Further complications ensue when Mork and Mearth swap bodies.


  • Mork cracks a joke about the Nielsen ratings being old and unreliable. Nielsen ratings are the television ratings system, which has been questioned and criticized for decades. Mork and Mindy ranked #3 in the ratings during its first season but had slipped to #60 by season 4.
  • Mindy says of Mr. Sternhagen, "They just tossed him out on his ear without a word," and Mork replies, "Is nothing sacred? First the Ropers, now Miles Sternhagen!" The Ropers were characters in the popular ABC sitcom Three's Company, who were given a spin-off and a verbal agreement that if the show failed, they would be allowed to return to Three's Company. The Ropers was canceled after two seasons but the characters never returned to their original show.
