Quotes

Orson: I thought all stars were rich, live in mansions and drive big eggs.
Mork: I know, sir, that's the common misconception. But you see to get that you have to pay a very heavy price: you have responsibilities, anxieties, and to tell you the truth, sir, some of them can't take it.
Orson: I'm not buying it, Mork.
Mork: Why, sir?
Orson: It sounds to me like they have it made.

Second appearance of Foster Brooks

"Mork Meets Robin Williams" opens with Mindy anxious to interview comedian Robin Williams for KTNS-TV, seemingly the only person in Boulder who hasn't met him, since he performed at the local comedy club and signed autographs at Remo and Jeanie's restaurant. Mindy's boss Miles Sternhagen (Foster Brooks) drops by after lunch to inform her that he's fired if she doesn't come through with the interview. Feeling no pain, he reveals that he's parked outside in her hedge, refusing an offer to stay and nap until he sobers up: "I can do that while I'm driving!" Meanwhile, Mork finds himself being chased all over town due to his resemblance to Robin Williams, and when the two come face to face it's staged quite well. Robin admits that he's a 'performing addict,' unable to say no, who doesn't mind granting Mindy an interview to save her job. As himself, Robin Williams is commendably serious and reserved, certainly more animated as Mork, who quietly concludes the episode with Orson by listing celebrities that were prisoners of their own fame, in particular the recent murder of John Lennon. This entry came about because Williams felt it important to have his fans know the difference between the real Robin and his TV creation Mork.
