| John Larroquette and Richard Moll before NIGHT COURT
"Alienation" finds Mearth despondent because children won't play with him, so Mindy determines that Mork finally confide to their son that he's an alien. The conversation ends with a display of Mork's powers, which actually frightens Mearth. Despite the uniqueness of being half Orkan and half Earthling Mearth decides to run off, joining the cult of Baba Love, led by Baba Hope (John Larroquette) and Baba Gentle (Richard Moll), convinced that they love him. Mork has to pose as 'Baba Loo' in order to fake out the entourage, while Mindy shows Mearth the importance of being yourself. At the episode's conclusion, both Mork and Mearth sign off with Orson. Interesting casting of future NIGHT COURT stars Larroquette and Moll, though they haven't much to do.
