Where's Lizard taking you?
To a science fiction movie. Something about this guy being shrunk and then injected into someone else.
That's not science fiction. A friend of mine did that once. He took a wrong turn and got stuck in a guy's nose.

This was undoubtably one of the best shows on television when it first came on. I loved the escapades of the furry little alien creature (ALF) as the family whose garage he crashed into tried to introduce him to human customs. I liked it. Unfortunately, towards the end it got kind of nasty, with the characters starting to fight all the time. Still, they had some memorable and warm moments and episodes.
