Consider Me Gone

  • Note #1: Raquel first glimpes ALF through the Tanner's window in A.L.F. In the episode Take a Look at Me Now, Raquel Ochmonek sees ALF in the Tanners backyard and tries to report it to the media. No one believes her and she begins to think she's gone crazy. To let her know she's not crazy, ALF broadcasts a message to her telling her he's real. However, he tells her he is in space and doesn't allow her to know he is staying with the Tanners. As a result, Raquel is still fully unaware of ALF in all following episodes.
  • Note #2: In the episode For Your Eyes Only, ALF befriends a blind woman named Jody and moves in with her briefly. Due to her blindness, Jody never realizes ALF is an alien.
  • Note #3: In the episode Tequila, Kate's friend Maura Norris saw ALF not knowing he is an alien since Maura was mentally compromised from drinking alcohol.
  • Note #4: The people in the hospital (including Katy and James) (ALF's Special Christmas (Part 1)) did not interact with ALF, thinking he is a toy animal.
  • Note #5: In the episode Wedding Bell Blues, ALF tells Willie that he hitchhiked to the Brothers of the Peaceful Dominion. If that is the truth he was probably seen by the people who gave him a lift, but it could have been a joke as well.
