  • A very good and funny ALF episode.

    8.3
    This is yet another smooth-flowing ALF episode. The third season had really hit a wonderful stride by this point where every episode was at a very high quality. This episode is really funny and the character Jim or as he liked to be called “Jimbo” is great and easy to relate too. Everyone knows someone like him who just never stops talking. Jim talks on and on even when nobody asks him too which gets really annoying to the Tanners. Later in this episode, we find out that Jim’s real name is Steve and that he is part of the FBI’s witness protection program. This episode has some great parts and holds up to the same high quality most ALF season three episodes do. Recommended.moreless

    • Willie: Alright, he's taken advantage of us long enough! I'm going to have to be firm with him!
      ALF: "Firm?" Oh-h-h! I haven't you this worked up since the time you were "adamant."

    • Willie: I'll help you send the satellite dish back.
      ALF: Can't. I bought it during their "Absolutely No Refunds What Are You Deaf?" sale.
      Willie: (panicking) "Absolutely no refunds?!"
      ALF: What, are you deaf?

    • ALF lets out a belch
      Brian: Stomach number four?
      ALF: Three. Stomach number four hasn't digested that Reebok yet.

    • Kate: You're lucky that you got to keep this satellite dish.
      ALF: Don't use the words "lucky" and "dish" in the same sentence unless you mean it.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • ALF: You're not seriously going to let Scarface stay here, are you?

      ALF is alluding to Al Pacino's character, a Cuban immigrant who takes over a drug empire, in the film of the same name, Scarface.

    • ALF: As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again!

      ALF is alluding to the famous line by Scarlett O'Hara in the movie Gone with the Wind.

    • ALF: Los Angeles, California. I was working the nightwatch in the backyard. Today's Friday. My name's ALF, I carry a bat.

      These lines allude to the 60's police show, Dragnet, and were made famous by the main character, Sergeant Joe Friday. In each episode's introduction he says, "The story you are about to see is true.... My name's Friday. I carry a badge."

    • ALF mentions that he doesn't want to wake up next to Mister Ed's head.
      That line alludes both to the 60's television show about a talking horse named Mr. Ed, and to the 1972 movie The Godfather, in which a Hollywood producer wakes up next to the head of his prized horse.

    • The title is derived from a Mick Jagger song with the same name.
