  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • ALF: Kate, I'm sorry I broke your wedding present. I was going to tell you.
      Kate: Really? When?
      ALF: I was waiting to see if the marriage would last.

    • ALF: (reading Lynn his poem)
      It's not what you think;
      I'm really not a fink.
      You're the last person I'd hurt;
      I didn't mean to blurt...(quietly)it out.

    • Lynn: I need to wait for the right when they're in a really, really good mood.
      ALF: Yeah? Well let me know when that happens, and I'll tell them about the untimely demise of Kate's porcelain ballerina.
      Lynn: You broke mom's porcelain ballerina?
      ALF: Yeah. We were dancing the pas de deux from "Swan Lake" and I dropped her in the toilet.

    • ALF: Don't tell them? You want me to lie?
      Lynn: No! No, you don't have to lie! Just...don't bring it up. That's not lying.
      ALF: Egad! What a loophole!

    • Kate: Let me get right to the point. He's too old for you.
      Lynn: I knew you'd overreact!
      Kate: I am not...(calms down a bit) I am not overreacting.
      ALF: Let me get a look at this dude. (peers through kitchen window) Yikes! He's almost as old as Kate!

    • Lynn: (talking about her much older date) Eddie taught history for a while!
      Willie: And lived a good deal of it, I believe!
