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.
Katherine and Willie enter the living room with Eric. Willie calls for Brian.
Willie: Brian! Game starts in half an hour!
Katherine: Timmy's mother told me they call the pitcher on the other team "the headhunter!" What do you suppose that means?
Willie: It means Brian will probably get on base tonight!
Brian: Mom, Dad, I fell lucky!
Willie: Don't forget to wear your batting helmet!
After an exterior shot of the house we can see Lynn lying on her bed. She is on the phone.
Lynn: Joanie, that's too bad! Well, for that it's worth, it is never easy breaking up! You'll feel better once the bitterness sets in!
There is a knock on the door.
Lynn: Listen, I gotta go, okay? I'll talk to you tomorrow! Bye!
She hangs up.
Lynn: Is that you again, Alf?
Alf: Yeah! Can I come in?
Alf (enters anyway): Too late!
Lynn: Alf, I have to study! I don't have time to read your article again!
Alf: Then I'll stare at you until you do!
Lynn: Suit yourself!
Alf knocks on his papers several times until Lynn starts to get annoyed, takes the papers and reads the text.
Lynn: It's fine, Alf! Oh, arm wrestling for the captured mating stock is really a good hook!
Alf: "Good"? You said "great" the last four drafts!
Lynn: Alf, this is only eight paragraphs in a sleazy magazine!
Alf: Are you kidding? This could launch my career!
Lynn: Fine! Well, then it's perfect! Couldn't be better than this! It redefines journalism as we know it! I'd send it in just like it is!
Lynn walks Alf out and closes the door.
Alf: You hate it, don't you?
Lynn rolls her eyes and leans back.
Marilyn: Mrs. Universe, can't you reason with him?
Katherine: No offense, Marilyn, but weren't you the least bit suspicious when he referred to the leader of the Amazons as "Lieutenant Uhura"?
