Cora's depressed after the death of a friend, so Mork ages himself to cheer her up.


When a friend of Cora's passes away, she goes into a funk. When Mork hears she needs more friends her age, he decides to become one by using his Orkan Age Machine.

Note: Mork reveals his alien nature to Cora in this episode.



  1. Right before the father enters Mindy's house, Mork's arms are not crossed then crossed.
  2. When Mork dresses up as an older person, he makes a purchase at the music store. The purchase is for $5.29. Mork hands the grandmother one bill, assuming it would be a 10 dollar bill because it was only one bill, yet he gets only coins back as change, no bills.
