Compared are the cut episodes on the US DVD by Lions Gate / FOX and the uncut episodes on the German DVD by Warner Home Video.
10 cuts = 1 minute and 44 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.
Jake keeps talking about his beloved Laura: Did I mention her amazing eyes?
Alf: Yeah, they're on springs and they bounce out of her head!
Katherine: Alf, I think you may be embarrassing Jake!
ALF looks at Jake and says "Really?". Jake nods.
After Jake admitted to Kate he did not have the guts to give Laura a call, ALF says: He can't seem to talk to the opposite sex these days!
Alf: You gotta wait till she bites... then you reel her in! You watch her flop around the deck a while... then you gut and scale her! Look, maybe I'm taking this metaphor too far! But you get my point!
Jake: Uh, not really!
Jake: (You gotta help me!)
Alf: What can I do?
Jake: I don't know! What would this Cyrano guy do?
Alf: Well, Cyrano didn't have to worry about the Alien Task Force!
Jake: Can't you do anything? I'm desperate!
Alf: I can traverse the alleys! Is there shrubbery near the bedroom window?
Jake: Bougainvillea! Why?
Laura: (I can't see you! Come into the light!)
Laura: (Why not?)
ALF whispers the answer into Jake's ear.
Jake: Uh, because night is a veil over us... making all things dimly beautiful! Even Tommy Lasorda!
Laura: You're even funnier than your letters!
ALF whispers the answer into Jake's ear again.
Jake: I'm afraid I might move you to laughter!
Laura: Why are you afraid?
Jake shuts the door behind him after Laura let him in. ALF comes out of the bushes moaning and says: You kids go ahead! Don't worry about me!
He screams out because of the thornes.
The exterior shot of the garage is missing. The camera zooms in and one gets to see Willie drawing in a cable through the window.
Willie is reading the paper. ALF is standing behind him and reads it, too. When Willie intends to flip the page, ALF tells him to wait and flip back to the previous page because he was not finished yet. Willie is annoyed but he turns the page anyway. ALF reads the page for a brief moment, then he tells Willie to flip the page.
