    • QUOTES (6)

      • Lynn: (hands ALF a mirror) Here, it's bad luck to break a mirror.
        ALF: (breaks it)
        Lynn: Do you feel any luckier?
        ALF: No. That was Kate's mirror!

      • Willie: Trevor, didn't you ever want to let your hair down and slap on a flank steak?
        Trevor: Well, I always thought about it. I mean, everybody's thought about it.

      • ALF: I'm an accursed Melmackian! I belong in the realm of the "gosh darned."
        Kate: "Gosh darned?"
        ALF: Ours was a polite society.

      • Willie: What are you cooking?
        ALF: It's a surprise.
        Willie: Oh, no.
        ALF: Relax, it's just my June bug scallopini.
        Kate: Hence the crackling noise.
        Willie: You're frying June bugs?
        ALF: Please, Willie. You fry caterpillars. June bugs you sautee.

      • Brian: Why is it bad luck to destroy a history book?
        ALF: Because Melmacians have a great respect for books. If you destroy a history book, you cheat future generations out of knowledge of the past.
        Willie: That's rather deep for a planet whose motto was "Are you going to finish that sandwich."

      • Brian (After Alf burned his history book): My History book is history.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • ALF is singing "Put your left foot in, put your left foot out, put your left foot in, and you shake it all around". ALF is singing The Hokey Pokey which was created by Larry Laprise in 1949.

      • The title was derived from a Stevie Wonder song with the same name.
