Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue?

Well, what it quarels down to is, we got to take a closer look at our bils.
Hay.
What's going on in here? We're having a family meeting.
Oh, I get it.
Freeze out the alien.
I guess I'm not part of the family.
Alf, we thought you were watching "The three stooges.
" I turned it off.
Somehow I just can't buy Shep as a surgeon.
- Curley was a senator once.
- True.
And Mo was speaker of the house.
Could we put it off with the stooge talk here for a minute.
Certainly.
We'd like to get back to our meeting.
Oh yeah, the meeting I wasn't invited to.
It's it's about our family budget.
What'd you think I was gona do? Dominate the conversation? - Be abnousents? - No, Alf, nobody ever sugested Grow up a lot of pointless sugestions? - Interupt everybody? - We never said - Never let anybody get a word in - Alf! You can come to the meeting.
No thanks.
Let's just take a look at our electric bill for example, It's three times of what it used to be.
Maybe it's the porch light you leave on every time I go out.
Porch light stays.
And we've been keeping the termostate down to 70.
And turn off the dryer, as soon as I wake up.
Well, we're just going the dryer? What do you meen "Turn off the dryer?" Why would you even turn it on? To keep me company at night.
Why? Is 8 hours too long? Yes.
What if I just leave it on "Delicate.
" Leave it off.
Now, let's get back to the rest of our money problems.
No chance of you getting a better job, I supose? I like my job.
The money's fine.
Who made this call to Munich Munich, Germany? Munich? That has to be a mistake.
No, it's not.
You called Munich.
Why? Remember the vacuum-cleaner I broke? Yeah.
Well, the repair place said that they couldn't get the chicken salad out of impaler blades, and they had to send it to the Germany, for an overall.
That doesn't explain why you called Germany.
Hay, I believe in following things through.
Let's move on to another problem.
Food.
I'm gona get some cookies.
I don't think that all of us are aware, how much food costs.
We're all out of Macaroons.
All we got are Chocolate Chips.
Let alone how much food is being consumed, for that meter.
Is something wrong? You eat all our food.
I'm begining to realise what this is all about.
Tha finger are being pointed in the direction of fury visitor.
You all think I'm a parasite.
No one thinks you're a parasite.
All right.
A freeloader.
Freeloader is closer.
- What about a sponger.
- Where did you ever hear that word.
That's what you called him last week.
Oh, I see.
Let's just settle on parasite and move on.
Fine.
If you want me, I'll be in my room.
Not wasting money.
"I just checked into the Parazite hotel.
" "They ain't got no portir, or a bell.
" "I checked into the Parazite hotel.
" -Alf? - Oh, I'm sorry.
Was I playing too loud.
I didn't know you could play the piano.
Well, I was winging it.
It's tought to play without the red keys.
You seem kind of down.
Maybe I'm just being overly sesitive about being called a freeloader.
Sponger, and parasite.
Oh, Alf.
We don't meen to call you any of those things.
You you just hapend to catch us in a moment of Honesty.
It's just a metter of making a few adjustments.

It's nose to the grindstone time for this parasite.
What could you even do? Well on Melmac i owned and operated my own "Flamdealership.
" - Flamdealership? - Ever drive one? The Flam-turbo was a classic.
There must be some other options.
Well, there was a sunroof, but it was best to keep it closed.
