Heartwarming: Mork and Mindy
  • In a story that could only in happen in this series, "Mork the Gullible," Mork is talked into freeing an escaped criminal who claims that he just needs to visit his sick mother and will return to turn himself back in afterward. Sure enough, Mork is arrested for freeing him and Mindy tells him that it is obvious that the crook took advantage of him and won't be back. In a genuinely moving moment, Mork tearfully agrees that he can't trust anyone again, until the crook suddenly returns as promised to turn himself in and get Mork released. With that, Mork's innocence is restored with his naive belief in the goodness of humanity vindicated.
  • In "Sky Flakes Keep Falling on My Head", a vacation has Gone Horribly Wrong and the couple sit on a mountaintop with snow falling. Mindy cannot move because of her hurt ankle, but she urges Mork to try and make it down the mountain by himself, asking, "What have you got to lose?" Mork's response, one word: "You."
  • The conclusion of "Mork's Mixed Emotions," just before Mork's emotions reintegrate as his whole personality, Mork give Mindy a kiss as each of his emotions in appreciation of her love and help.
  • This line from the end of "It's a Wonderful Mork":
    Mork: Orson, you showed me what Mindy's life would be like without me, but please, never show me what my life would be like without her."
  • "I love you, Mindy." "I love you too, Mork."
