He the, not realizing what they were all about, or what they stood for, invites them over for coffee and to support from them concernig Nelson. During a discussion with them, it is revealed to all, that they are really a hate group. Mindy, being part Polish, orders them to leave at once. Pure Power later vandalizes their apartment and hangs a dummy in effigy with the sign "Go Home Polack".

Mork settles the score by vandalizing their headquarters. Mindy arrives and tells Mork that violence and revenge are not the answer. The members of PP arrive in their uniforms (with hoods on). They start in on Mork, but he reprograms their genetic makeup and turns them different colors (red, black, blue, Hispanic and Asian). He says it will wear off when "they learn about brotherhood without the hood."
