Mearth decides he wants to go to school, so he commutes to Ork, but his enthusiasm wanes when he realizes school life is difficult.
Mearth, lamenting that he can't go to school, leads Orson into calling Mindy during the night to request the application promised by Mork on behalf of Mearth attending school on Ork, one day each month.
Being an adult growing younger will make him the same as the other students, which include Zelka (Maureen Arthur) and Ovits (Harvey Lembeck), under the tutelage of Miss Geezba (Louanne).
Unfortunately, after one day at school, Mearth suddenly wants to quit, so Mork and Mindy beam up to Ork in similar Star Trek mode to learn why. Mork remembers the feared Miss Geezba, who still demands he turn in his long awaited book report (it burned up on reentry!). Ovits proves to be the proverbial "class bully", while Zelka wants to be Mearth's friend (both would return for the very next episode "Pajama Game II" (episode #11).
