Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When Willie enters the kitchen and finds ALF making a huge, messy snack, Willie is holding a completely empty glass of milk which he sets down on the table. In the next shot, he picks up the same glass, which is now full, and takes a drink from it.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • ALF: (to Willie) Where did you get that shirt…Fredericks of Sri Lanka?
      Willie: It was the Sixties, ALF. Those clothes made a statement!
      ALF: Yeah. "I dressed in the dark."

    • Willie: Forget the attic! The attic is out!
      ALF: Why? Do you need the storage space for your abandoned idealism?
      Willie: (angrily) Good night, ALF.
      ALF: Boy! Point out one major flaw in someone's belief system and they take it personally!

    • ALF: (to Willie) See you later, Agitator!

  • NOTES (0)


    • Willie: Where's ALF? It's not like him to miss a meal.
      Lynn: He's up in his new room, listening to an album. I think it's "The Doors" again.

      The Doors were an influential rock band formed in the 1960's, with Jim Morrison as their lead singer.

    • Willie: Look! That's Mama Cass!
      ALF: Short for "Casserole," I wager.

      Mama Cass was a member of the superstar group "The Mamas and the Papas" during the 1960's. She was known for her ample figure.

    • During Willie's dream sequence, ALF asks him if has an "Up With People" rehearsal to go to. "Up With People" was a musical in the 60's to help gather interest for an educational movement of the same name which was a volunteer awarness program for global, cultural, and social issues.

    • While ALF and everyone are watching Willie and Kate's woodstock footage, ALF yells, "Yikes! It's that girl!" when he sees Willie's long hair. That Girl was a show during the late 60's in which Ann Marie, played by Marlo Thomas, had a similar overall appearance of hair.

    • The title is derived from a Bob Dylan song with the same name.
