Pete discovers ALF and calls the Alien Task Force and asks about a reward. Initially, they think he's crazy, but then they notice that Raquel Ochmonek reported a sighting at the same address previously, so they decide to check it out. Since ALF ate the Tanner's Thanksgiving turkey, they were invited by the Ochmoneks for their Thanksgiving dinner. While the Tanners were at the Ochmonek's house, Flakey Pete goes inside and confronts ALF.

Part 2[]

Flakey Pete awaits the Alien Task Force and his reward for turning ALF in. When Flakey Pete figures out that the Alien Task Force might hurt ALF he changes his mind and pretends that he is an alien when the Alien Task Force arrives. They figure that he is just looking for a free meal and warn him not to call again.


In syndication, this episode is skipped when this show aired reruns. It only airs in November.
