    Ok, well two which have been mentioned before:

    Jerry Nelson "No Christine, that's a frog, bears wear hats"

    and
    Rat 1 "I'm getting tired"
    Rat 2 "What did he say?"
    Rat 3 "He said go faster"
    Rat 1 "I'm getting tired"

    From the same crowd I'm also very fond of:

    Rat Tour Guide "And here is a photo opportunity you will not want to miss, the actual jungle location for the movie Muppet Treasure Island".

    Some of my favourites from TMS include:

    Kermit: "They always tell you that the show must go on, but they never tell you why. Well right now the show absolutely must not go on, because I quit. I mean the guest star's a pirate and the theatre is sailing out to sea."

    Ethel Merman: "You were at the opening night of Gypsy! Come to think of it I did hear some croaking in the audience"

    Waldorf: "I remember Ethel Merman in the opening of Panama Hattie"
    Stadler "Well you're old enough to remember the opening of the Panama Canal"

    and perhaps my favourite of all

    Kermit: "Well done Annie Sue"
    Annie Sue "But I didn't do very much"
    Kermit "You just saved Fozzie's act"

    I know this thread is basically concerned with quotes from The Muppets.
    But here's two favourites from 'The Secret Life Of Toys'. It's the fact that it was puppeteers who had to say these lines, that make them funny.

    Ditz: "I wonder how trees do it, with their arms stuck up in the air all day?"

    Raisin: "Ditz, I can't believe what a great tree you make. I mean my arms would be killing me by now."

    My new favorite quote:

    Dog Crowd: How many pelicans can you fit in a phone booth?
     
  4. "It's a hideous round thing!" - Boober

    Already mentioned, but I love 'em:
    "You are all weirdos!"
    "No, Christine, that's a frog. Bears wears hats."
