Scene excerpt quotesEdit

  • Orson: You opened the door to your emotions, didn't you?
  • Mork:' Yes, Sir.
  • Orson: You realize you've broken the highest Orkan law. It is my duty to report you to the Council.
  • Mork: I understand. But I don't regret what I've done, sir. You see, for the first time in my life, I feel really alive, I feel fantastic! Oh, I wish you could try it! I wish you could feel some of the things I've been feeling!
  • Orson: Impossible. I could never do that. They'd throw me in prison.
  • Mork: Oh, I don't mean to be disrespectful, your immenseness, but until you can marvel at a rainbow after a storm or rejoice at seeing a baby walk for the first time, or hold someone and have them feel the same warmth inside as you feel close to them outside - until you can do these things, aren't you already in prison?
