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.
Longer conversation between Jim and Willie inside the car:
Jim: I remember home-cooked meals with my folks when they were still alive! Boy, you just never appreciate stuff like that till it's gone!
Willie: You know, ordinarily I'd love to invite you, Jimbo, but...
Jim: Oh, no! I would never impose! It's against the orphan's creed!
Alf sits in the garage and watches TV. Subsequently, Willie enters.
Willie: Hi, Alf!
Willie: I wanted to apologize for not being able to help you set up the satellite dish! You know I never really meant to invite Jimbo over!
Alf: You brought home an elephant for dinner?
Willie: I said Jimbo, not Jumbo! How's the dish working?
Alf: Better since I hauled it up on the roof! By myself! Never mind that I almost threw out my back!
Willie: Stop trying to make me feel guilty, Alf!
Alf: I'm not! By the way, sorry about your wheelbarrow! I landed on it when I fell of the roof!
Willie: You're not going to make me feel guilty!
Alf: I'm not trying to! And I'm sure the electric shock I got when I plugged the dish in only took, what, 80, 90 years of my life?
Willie: Okay, I feel guilty!
Alf: Something I said?
Jim: (I'll bet you didn't know Columbia, South America is completely east of Florida! And the Atlantic end of the Panama Canal is west of the Pacific end!)
Willie: I had no idea! Kate, did you?
Lynn (shaking her head): Mm-mm!
Willie: We had no idea!
