Mork versus Dick.

Mork versus Dick.

When it was suggested I do a Mork fan fiction I immediately thought of crossing him over with 3rd Rock From the Sun because they had identical premises. It seemed a natural fit. And I think it suggested a great, and easy, plot for a single episode. Both Mork and the Solomons are essentially anthropologists studying Earth culture for their respective home worlds.

Characters maybe you don’t know

  • Mork is an alien from Ork, sent to learn about Earth

    Mindy is his Earthling roommate, and later, his wife.

  • Orson is Mork’s superior, and is never seen, but interacts with Mork at the end of each episode when Mork “phones home.”

  • Dick Solomon is the leader of a group of aliens who have taken on Earth forms and emotions to learn about Earthlings. Before these forms, they were asexual, and emotionless, widening the cultural misunderstandings that even Mork puts up with.

  • Sally Solomon is the group’s military expert.

  • Tom Solomon is the oldest alien, so was assigned to be a teenager because he was thought to be the only one mature enough to handle it.

  • Harry Solomon is the weird one, and acts as a “radio” whenever they contact their superior back home.

  • The Big Giant Head is the 3rd Rock team’s superior, and is on screen only for a few episodes.

  • Mary Albright is an Earthling, at first irritated with but eventually falls for Dick. Unlike Mindy, she doesn’t learn Dick’s true identity early on.

The Story

Mindy makes Mork join a gym to get in shape:
While there, he meets Dick and Tom in the locker room.
Dick is there to impress his girlfriend, and he dragged Tom along so he wouldn’t be alone
Mork; “I’ve just never seen a naked human man before.”
Dick: “Neither have I.”
Both look as they realize what they’ve said. Tom slaps Dick on the back of the head.
Realizing their common ground, Dick invites Mork to bring Mindy over to the Solomon home for dinner.

When Dick and Tom get home:
Dick: “We’ve invited over some new friends.”
Harry: “I don’t like your friends.”
Tom: “He’s an alien! Just like us!”
Harry: “I don’t really like aliens.”
Dick: “Trust me, Harry, You’ll love ‘em.”
Harry; “I don’t really trust you.”
Dick: “Harry, I’m the commander of this mission. I order you to love them!”
Harry: “well, ok boss.”

When Mork and Mindy arrive:
Harry flirts badly with Mindy.
Mark and Dick get into a competition where they try to out-alien each other with exploits, conquests, and general weirdness
Mindy and Mary, both present, are frustrated and confused, respectively.
After dinner Dick explains that he didn’t mean Harry should try to steal Mindy
Harry: “Oh. I see. So that’s how it is.”

Later:
Mork and Dick both report back to their respective off-planet supervisors – it is revealed that they are former college room mates who pranked each other frequently.
Some conversation follows, and ends with split screen, both bosses saying at the same time “I hate that guy.”
Mork and Harry are both ordered to sabotage each other’s missions.

They have a series of pranks. Really amateur, basic ones they both fall for. Harry hits on Mork every time they see each other.

Mindy and Mary, frustrated with Dick and Mork’s behavior, tell them how stupid it is, and finally convince them to reconcile.
When they do, Dick tells Harry he doesn’t have to love Mork. He can just love himself.
Harry looks at his hand.
