  • In the episode "Mork's First Christmas," Mork is terrified by what he sees people doing: random gangs singing about beating up Monty Hall and his family ("Deck the Halls"), a police state where a man in a red suit is "stationed" on every corner ringing a bell, and (the sickest) everyone putting little plastic babies on their lawn covered in straw. When Mindy tries calming him down by explaining "this is all a part of our Christmas holiday," he is immediately calm, saying, "Oh, well that explains it." The Fridge Logic kicks in when you think about all the different and certainly bizarre celebrations that he might have witnessed on Ork and other planets, which allows him to immediately equate these customs with local celebrations of some sort.


How well does it match the trope?
