Brilliant Anne Ramsey Moment
3 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I didn't like the show "Alf". Couldn't stand it.

But special guest star Anne Ramsey was in this episode, as a woman who was complaining, either about Alf, or having seen him, or just being downright cranky.

It didn't matter. Ramsey was hilarious at being impossibly irritable.

Her husband in real life, Logan Ramsey, would be her boyfriend in this episode as well. He appeared toward the end.

They made out to "Bolero" at the end. Too funny.

But I guess one truly great bit was Anne was carrying a TV dinner to the couch and sat down.

The doorbell rang.

"Figgers," she growls, looking at the TV tray. "As soon as I sit down to a nice home-cooked meal, someone shows up at the door." I can laugh at that one line to this day.
