MONDO EXTRAS

Behind The Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Mork & Mindy

Valerie and Robin walk past his trailer. He's wearing a dark suit, and she's wearing some little red, yellow, and aqua sundress. It's clearly the '80s now. She tells him that it's the last time they'll take that walk, and he tells her that he's looking forward to being a househusband. He even agrees to buy some furniture. He kisses her hand and tells her, "It'll be a real home. [Until I dump you in six years.]" They enter the studio.

It's the final wrap party for the show. Pam and Valerie are chatting. Val tells Pam that she and Robin are trying to get pregnant. And then Pam tells Valerie that she wants to introduce her to her new boyfriend. We only see the boyfriend from a distance, but it's clearly supposed to be Mark Harmon. (And yes, I know that Pam is married to Mark Harmon, and that she's not really a lesbian. But I swear that she never ever ever did any drugs.) Robin and Harvey are also talking. Robin is getting ready for another movie, The World According to Garp. And then Robin starts going around the room and addressing everyone. Redhead is there, and Robin insults him and the crap his network produces. And then he does Garry, and Isabel, and Winters, and the writers, and Harvey, and Gina, and Jay Thomas, and Pam, and Conrad, and Elizabeth. The only funny bit is when he gets to Elizabeth -- he just starts saying "wiener" over and over again in a little old lady voice. And then he gets to the director, and Valerie. And then he comes back to Redhead, saying, "And we're back to the man who took us off the air, who said we weren't funny anymore. And you know what? For the first time in four years, ABC was right!" And…fake credits.

Because it's not the credits. It's Robin saying goodbye to people without being an actual douchebag about it. And then Val asks if Robin is ready to go home. He tells her that he'll meet her at the car: "I just want to take a last look around." And then he walks around the set. Scintillating television. But then some rat-looking man calls out to him from the corner and offers him some "pure Peruvian flake." He asks if Robin wants some, and Robin says, "Yes." And then he walks away.

And then we get some footage of Robin playing with his kids. But presumably not the kids from his second marriage, after he dumped Valerie. And he's got the plaque on his wall: "Life is more important than show business." And apparently, crappy '70s nostalgia is more important than good television.
