Above is an episode of late 70s comedy Mork And Mindy, starring the late Robin Williams as Mork, a visitor from another planet, and Pam Dawber as Mindy. It's Mork and the Immigrant, January 11, 1979 and here's the description.
Mork is warned by a young Russian immigrant that all aliens in the United States must register. When Mork tries to report, he throws the Immigration Bureau into total confusion.You see, since Mork, a visitor from another planet, is a guest in Mindy's house, he and she aren't really a democracy, but he doesn't quite get it, so she explains diplomatically that since there are exactly two of them, they can't settle things by voting because it will inevitably result in a tie.
Mork is intrigued by the voting procedure in a democracy. After learning from Mindy that at least three voters are needed to prevent ties, Mork meets Sergei, a young student cellist recently immigrated from Russia who is looking for a place to stay, and moves him into Mindy's apartment to resolve their domestic voting problem.
So Mork meets a Russian immigrant—a refugee from Communism—who is temporarily homeless:
Sergei: I wanted to be part of this democracy, ja.She's also the girl who owns the apartment. (She and Mork are just friends, because he's from a planet where they don't have sex.)
Mork: You know about democracy?
Sergei: Oh, ya, I study this, mm-hmm.
Mork: Mindy and I are forming a democracy.
Sergei: Leaping lizards.No faking?
Mork: Yes. And you could be a third so we can vote and I can ask you questions.You can come and live with us.
Sergei: Oh, I don't want make trouble on you.
Mork: Oh, no trouble, no trouble.
Mork: Mindy'll be happy when she finds out about this.
Sergei: Who is this Mindy?
Mork: Oh, she's the girl I live with.
Later, at Mindy's apartment:
Mork: Sergei's going to be part of our democracy.This is the same thing the Democrats have been doing with their "Electing a New People."
Mindy: Oh, that's great. Listen, you're going to love living in this country.
Mork: No, I mean our democracy. Sergei's gonna be our third, so we can vote. He's gonna live with us.
Mindy:Can I talk to you for a moment?They finally get it resolved, and return to the status quo ante, but not before Mindy has to explain that she pays the rent, and Mork says
Mork: I think we should vote on that. I vote no, what do you think, Sergei?
Sergei: I'm with you, Mork.
Mork: Two to one, you lose.
Mindy: (gritted teeth)I want to talk to you.
Mork: We just voted on that.
Mindy: (gritted teeth) Now!
Mork: Oh, that's a different story.
"Mindy, I don't think our democracy's working too well. Let's have a dictatorship instead, okay? I'll be the tyrant and you'll be the peon. Huh? Huh? Can I be the tyrant? Huh? Can I be the tyrant? Come on, now."And if you think about it, that's just what Hillary was saying.
