I have a question. I've heard about a dispuite between Gabe Kaplan and Marcia Strassmen. What is it?
Shirley: Well, now you've done it, haven't you? You have crumpled the universe!
Laverne: I crumpeled a leaf!
Shirley: You can not see beyond the obvious, Laverne! If you could, you could see the forest for the trees, you would see that on those trees grows the UNIVERSE!
Laverne: On those trees grows a LEAF!
ALF: As Barry as my witness, I'll never go hungry again!

She felt that there wasn't much to her character. Marcia Strassman said in an interview that her lines only consisted of
"and then what happened honey?" Also, she had heard and believed rumors that Gabe Kaplan did not like her, which was untrue,
James Komack, the executive producer apparently told her this lie and another about Gabe wanting her off the show. I guess he was going to Kaplan with stories about her too. That is what I heard on the E True Story.

Did they ever makeup?

It is too bad when things like this happen...I don't think too much of Komack now that I have heard this..... But there are people like that in that business who love to stir up trouble. Wasn't Kaplan the creator of the show? I would think he would have some control over the situation.....

Yes, Fortunately, they did make up.
Yes, Kaplan was the creator, along with Alan Sacks. However, Komack fired alot of Kaplan's writers, this is why not alot of people didn't like the fourth season.
I liked em all
