Quotes/Scene excerptsEdit

  • Orson: I thought all stars were rich, live in mansions and drive big eggs.
  • Mork: I know, sir, that's the common misconception. But you see to get that you have to pay a very heavy price: you have responsibilities, anxieties, and to tell you the truth, sir, some of them can't take it.
  • Orson: I'm not buying it, Mork.
  • Mork: Why, sir?
    Orson: It sounds to me like they have it made.
  • Mork: Well, most of them do sir, but some are victims of their own fame, very special and talented people. People like Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Lenny Bruce, Freddie Prinze and John Lennon.
