  • NOTES (1)


    • Alf's note about Lucky mentions David Janssen. This alludes to the actor who played Dr. Richard Kimble on the 1963 series of The Fugitive.

    • In the animal shelter, Heidi calls her newly adopted cat Damien. This likely alludes to the main character of the movie The Omen and later sequels, in which Damien is the antichrist born in a human body.

    • Alf: (singing) I like the music that feeds my soul. I like that all time rock and roll
      The dancing around in a men's shirt and lip-singing to that song is a common allusion to the movie Risky Bussness.
