* The final episodes. [[spoiler:Mork, Mindy, and Mearth are targeted by Kalik, a psycho from Neptune, and as a result, Mork has to reveal his alien identity to the world.

[[spoiler:Because the real final episode is "The Mork Report", where they are somehow safe at home as Mork, trying to get a promotion from Orson, makes a report about his marriage to Mindy.

* Mindy's nightmare in "A Mommy For Mindy", which is essentially a flashback to when her father told her that her mother had died. The nightmare ends with child-Mindy saying, "IWantMyMommy". Then we cut to real-life, where the adult Mindy is sobbing the same line as Mork tries to wake her up.

*** This one and Mork in Wonderland actually go over the same territory, but while Mandy's death is rather gratuitous. (The main ammo of the revolution is cream pies, and the artillery shell is friendly fire!). Robbie, meanwhile, is purely dealing with a friend who is growing old and senile.


* In "Mork in Wonderland", Mork shrinks down and finds himself in an alternate universe, where Mindy has a counterpart named Mandy (but that's not the weirdest part). She ends up as a "surrogate Mindy" for Mork. In the end, while overthrowing the evil king, Mandy gets hit by an artillery shell, and dies in Mork's arms. Mork starts growing again and cries out in anguish "IT'S NOT FAIR!". Meanwhile, in our world, Mindy is tearfully packing up Mork's clothes, but then Mork grows to normal size and appears out of the tablecloth. They tearfully embrace.

* The end of "Mork Meets Robin Williams" deserves special mention because there is NO wisecrack or "Nanu nanu" at the end. Just a list of famous people who died before their time, including the then-recently assassinated John Lennon. Even more heartbreaking when you [[HarsherInHindsight consider what later happened to Robin's friend John Belushi in]] RealLife.
** It gets [[HarsherInHindsight far more harsher]] when you consider the tragic death of Robin Williams in 2014.
