Added DiffLines:

* RecklessGunUsage: George is concerned that the Bigfoot-related hype running roughshod through Seattle will lead to many unqualified people arming themselves. Later, he is clearly frustrated by a panicky customer who tries to purchase "anything that goes fully-automatic", the man clearly ignorant of the fact that such a weapon is illegal.

''Harry and the Hendersons'' (1987) is a family comedy film starring John Lithgow as George Henderson, against the rather phenomenal special effects by Rick Baker used to bring the friendly Bigfoot to life, for which the movie won an Oscar. It was followed by a live-action series following the adventures of the Hendersons and their pet Bigfoot, billed as "Series/{{ALF}} for the 90's".

* GroinAttack: [=LaFleur=] knees Harry in the squishy bits. At first it seems to do nothing but make him mad - but then he drops [=LaFleur=] and howls in pain, and then gets ''really'' mad. Apparently [[TheMonsterSquad Sasquatch has nards]].

* SomewhereAMammalogistIsCrying: Most primate would interpret Harry's toothy grin as an aggressive or fearful gesture rather than a friendly one.
