9 cuts = 2 minutes and 53,5 seconds.
There is no need to make many words about the hilarious TV show "ALF". You doesn't know it has at least heard of it even though it has been quite some time since something new from the ALF universe was released. Anyway, the show consists of 4 seasons and aired in the late 80s and early 90s. Furthermore, there are two animated series ("ALF: The Animated Series" & ALF Tales) and a motion picture from the mid 90s.
As to the US Versions, a few minutes of each episode were cut for syndication in order to show more commercials. Unfortunately, these syndication versions were also released on DVD. Understandably, the fans were disappointed that the DVDs do not contain the uncut episodes. Whether or not the uncut episodes will be released one day (perhaps on Blu-ray?) is the million dollar question.
After Alf has accidentally hit Willie's leg with the cricket bat, the latter kneels on the ground and the others are standing around him.
Katherine: Willie, are you all right?
Willie: Unh, I'm not sure! I think my shin is broken!
Alf: And he said he never played this game before!
Some more dialog during dinner:
Brian to Katherine: Mm, a perfect compliment to the steak tartare!
Alf: Hey, how about a little sympathy? I just took a blow that would have knocked out Mike Tyson!
Katherine: Would you like some more, dear?
Lynn: Oh, thanks, Mom!
Alf: All right, Cicely Tyson!
Bob: (History has been revised and your life with the Tanners never happened!)
Alf: But I've wished for a lot of things! How come this is the one you're giving me?
Bob: It's a new law! The Capra Amendment! Anyone who asks for a new life, gets one! Colorization is optional!
Alf: Well, I may be rich, but I'm not rich enough! Raise prices immediately!
Secretary: I'll get right on that, Sir!
Alf: Never mind! I'll handle it myself! Alf macht die Sprechanlage an und sagt: Mary, Elizabeth, can you please come right in? Die beiden Frauen kommen in Alfs Büro rein und setzen sich auf sein Schreibtisch. Alf: Take a memo! Die Frauen notieren sich daraufhin etwas auf ihren Zetteln auf.
Alf's dream sequence with Bob in the clouds is a bit longer:
An airplane can be heard flying over Alf and Bob.
Alf: Is it my imagination, or did a 747 just go by under us?
Bob: A clear violation of our airspace! I'll make a note!
Michael Landon hovers through the picture.
Alf: Look, it's Michael Landon! Hey, you, get off of my cloud! Haha! Oh, I kill me!
Willie: You know, Katherine, as wonderful as our lives are, I sometimes get the feeling that something's missing!
Katherine: Now that you mention it, I've been feeling the same way!
Recut to Bob und Alf listening in on Willie's und Katherines' chat.
Bob: You made them say that!
Alf: I didn't!
Bob: You did!
Alf: Did not!
Bob: Did too!
Alf: Look, the Tanners aren't better off just because they have more money! And I don't want to be rich if it means I'll never get to see them! It's the people in your life that count, not the material things!
Bob: What is this, "Family Ties?"
Alf: Well, at the very least someone's gotta teach that Willie how to tell a joke!
Bob: It's too late, Alf! What's done is done!
Some more dialog after Alf has woken up from his consciousness:
Willie: (We were really worried! We thought you might have... Well, you know!)
Alf: (Kicked the bucket?) Bit the big one? Bought the box condo? Checked into the maggot motel?
Willie (angry): Enough!
Alf: Taken a dirt nap?
Willie clears his throat looking at Alf.
Alf: I'm done!
After dropping the glass, Alf leans back and says: Popcorn! I need popcorn!
