Continuity[edit | edit source]

  • Speaking to the audience, ALF says, “Enjoy today’s show.” He makes no references to Melmac Memories.
  • Gordon’s speedometer goes up to 820. He was doing 759 in a 620 zone.
  • Skip refers to Allenwood Traffic Reformatory as “Allenwood Driving Reformatory”.
  • Bob says he brought Gordon mayonnaise “from the plant,” implying that Bob works at a factory producing mayonnaise. In the previous episode, Bob was established to be an inventor.
  • ALF gives his address as "Willie Tanner, 167 Hemdale, Los Angeles, CA."
  • The closing sequence returns to pronouncing Melmacian as “mel-may-SHUN” race. This may imply that Pismo and the Orbit Gyro takes place after this episode, although it aired first.
