The Way Mork Were was the 26th and season ending episode of season 2 of Mork and Mindy, also the 51st overall episode in the series. Co-written by April Kelly & David Misch, the episode, which was directed by Howard Storm, originally aired on ABC-TV on May 1, 1980.
Fred seeks advice regarding his faltering marriage with Mork & Mindy, and they share stories of their adventures.
Mindy's recently married father, Fred, troubled over his marriage, turns to Mork for Orkan help. Fred reminds Mork that his early relationship with Mindy involved some rough moments - for instance, the time Mork took Mindy to Exidor's mountain retreat and they nearly froze to death, and the time Mork naively started a wild brouhaha with Mindy thinking it would be fun to kiss and make up. Fred also helps the pair recall Mork releasing his pent-up emotions for the first time, and Mork's first meeting with his strange friend, Exidor. Fred then begins to realize that Mork is right about love between two people mattering more than their differences.
