One certainly needs to make no words about the hilarious TV show "ALF". Even those who have not seen it have 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 was 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 for 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.
The family sits at the table and plays a game. Willie plays a song on the piano and the others have to guess which song it is.
Alf: All right! Come on! I'm on a roll! Hit me with another one!
Willie: Uhm... Okay!
Willie starts to play a song. Soon, Alf interrupts him.
Alf: "The Jeffersons!" Mid-'70s situation comedy! Known today as "Amen!" Come on! Come on, I'm hot!
Willie: All right All right! Here goes! Here's one!
Soon after Willie started playing, Alf interrupts him again with the solution.
Alf: "Green Acres" Eddie Albert, Eva Gabor! Finest of the rural comedies!
Willie is very surprised. Alf tells him to play the next song.
Willie: Okay, here's one you don't know!
Alf (interrupting yet again): "Arnie" Herschel Bernardi's stepping stone to "Fiddler on the Roof!"... Next!
Lynn: Can we play something else? Something maybe we can all take part in!
Alf: No! Next!
Willie: Brian, isn't it past a certain somebody's bedtime?
Lynn: You want us to wake you when Grandma gets here?
Brian: Only if she brought me something! If not, tell her I'll see her in the morning!
After Alf made some negative remarks about Dorothy, Neal says to Lyn: I take it the two of them don't get along!
Lynn: Oh, they've had their moments! Luckily, one of us has always been around to turn the hose on them!
Whizzer: You know, I've played a lot of clubs over the years, but, uh... you're the third strangest thing I've ever seen!
Alf: Really? Does that include Kate?
Katherine and Dorothy sit in the car and talk.
Dorothy: You'd think if they could get 250 tons of metal to fly how hard could it be to find two pieces of luggage with Day-Glo pink yarn?
Katherine: Mom, enough talk about the luggage! They said they'll call, they'll call! You're driving me crazy!
Dorothy: You used to be such an agreeable child!
Katherine: Mom, Whizzer has been playing music for 40 years he has known you for less than two! You're behaving like a child! Why don't you just call him?
Dorothy: And give him the satisfaction?
Dorothy: Anyway, I can't! I don't even know where he is! For all I know, he's in some two-bit jazz club buying a drink for some lonely, middle-aged floozy!
Katherine: Oh, Whizzer wouldn't do that!
Dorothy: Are you kidding? How do you think he met me?
Longer dialog during the poker game:
Lynn: Oh, come on, Uncle Neal, stay in! He can't know what he's doing!
Whizzer: Don't be a fool, Neal! Fold! Nobody plays that stupidly without having a plan!
Willie: Trust me, ha, ha, there's no plan!
Whizzer: Dorothy, what are you doing? What do you want?
Dorothy: Triplets! What do you think I want? I want a home! Is that too much to ask?
Whizzer: Oh, so we're starting in on that again!
Dorothy: (Can we live here?)
Whizzer: (No! Now this is the part where you have to give up something!)
Dorothy: All right, I'll give up the triplets! What do I need with more stretch marks, anyway?
