    Yay, another list thread! This time, list your favorite quote from each theatrical film, along with the character who says it. If there are a few films that you're not all that familiar with, feel free to skip them and also feel free to add quotes from the TV films and specials. And the quotes don't have to be verbatim the way they are in the film, so paraphrasing is welcome. Here's my list:

    The Muppet Movie: "You owe us a nickel!"-Gonzo
    The Great Muppet Caper: "I got some paper towels!"-Lew Zealand
    The Muppets Take Manhattan: "Dog gets quiche at eight...whatever that is."-Rowlf
    The Muppet Christmas Carol: "Leave comedy to the bears, Ebenezer!"- Waldorf
    Muppet Treasure Island: "But I ordered shrimp scampi!"- Mad Monty
    Muppets From Space: "I'm doing thirty!"-Bobo
    Muppets Most Wanted: "Berlin is the world capital of comedy!"-Dominic

    (all paraphrased)

    :concern:I'm going to Bombay, India to become a movie star.
    :oYou don't go to Bombay to become a movie star. You go where we're going: Hollywood!
    :concern:Sure, if you wanna do it the easy way!
    :o...we picked up a weirdo.

    GMC (only saw it halfway)
    :oWe don't want the BAD guys to win!

    :)A frog and a pig? Getting married? Wait til I tell the guys in marketing! ... Perhaps you could bring home the bacon! Huh? .. Oh, the sounds of love! SOO-EEEE! Oink oink oink!

    :fanatic:(while passing an ad for star tour maps located next to a hotdog joint) Hey, I've got an idea! (cut to Walter et al. eating hotdogs)

    I don't know the other movies by heart really, and I just barely have memorized some of these scenes, so that's all for now...

    Among some of them:

    TMM: "There was this sailor who was SO fat..." "HOW FAT WAS HE!!!??" (gulp) "He was so fat that everyone loved him, and there was nothing funny about him at all."

    GMC: "If this is the Happiness Hotel, I'd hate to see what the Sad one looks like."

    MTM: "Ocean Breeze Soap; it's just like taking a tropical cruise, only there's no boat and you don't actually go anywhere."

    MMC: "Hey, hey, hey, light the lamp, not the rat; LIGHT THE LAMP, NOT THE RAT!!!!!"


    And because I consider it an honorary Muppet film:

    FTB: "Big Bird, I found you...this is not Big Bird! You are imposters!" "Grover...." "Super Grover, please."

    MCC: *Rizzo, after jumping off a gate, and then going through the bars to get his jelly beans*
    Gonzo: "you can fit through the bars?"
    Rizzo: "well...yah"
    Gonzo: *walking away* "you are such an idiot"
    Rizzo: *Following* "Whaaat?"

    MFC: Sam Eagle: "Why am I here?"

    I don't know any others very well by heart. :)

    Here are some of my faves
    :):Bear Left
    :o:Right Frog

    :): Were going to catch those crooks Red-handed
    :):Yes Bo?
    :oops:: What colour are their hands now?

    :concern::Maybe we should add more special effects like exploding socks

    And my favourite quote from a non Muppet character in this film is
    Pete: Hey, I tell you what is. Big city, hmm? Live, work, huh? But not city only. Only peoples. Peoples is peoples. No is buildings. Is tomatoes, huh? Is peoples, is dancing, is music, is potatoes. So, peoples is peoples. Okay?

    :shifty::Light the lamp not the rat!, Light the lamp not the rat!

    :shifty::What's wrong?
    :concern::It just feels so weird.
    :shifty::You mean that Mr Arrow's dead?
    :concern::Yeah, that... and my pants are filled with starfish.
    :shifty::You and your hobbies.

    [​IMG] :Jalapenos, jalapenos, gettin' my friend some jalapenos

    :):What? You kidnapped Jack Black? That's illegal!
    :o:What's more illegal, Kermit: briefly inconveniencing Jack Black, or destroying the Muppets?
    :):Kidnapping Jack Black, Fozzie!
    :fishy::Mr De Frog we all agree a celebrity is not a people

    [​IMG] :You have wocka-ed your last wocka, bear.

    Let's see, this will be a bit hard, but:


    :o: I don't know how to thank you guys!
    :): I don't know why to thank you guys....
    :sing:: Our pleasure, green stuff!

    :oops:: What color are their hands now?

    :shifty:: Okay, what'll you have?
    :sing:: The number for the board of health. (laughs)

    :shifty:: What?
    :concern:: You can fit through those bars?
    :shifty:: Yeah...
    :concern:: You are such an idiot...

    MTI (okay, there are no smilies for this):
    Clueless: Polly, what was that song that just happened?

    Okay, that's enough for now...I think I need more time to think of quotes for the others...

    :sing: What in the name of Fats Waller is that?
    :confused: That is a four-foot prune!

    :) How did you learn to drive?
    :o I took a correspondence course.

    :D This is a narrative of VERY heavy duty proportions!
    :sing: Cosmic, man! We gotta get the frog AWAY from this Hopper dude!
    :D Too true! Too true! It is indeed a problem for us to probosculate upon! But it seems to me that the frog and bear are temporarily out of service!

    :) Well I've got a dream, too. But it's about singing, and dancing, and making other people happy. And it gets better the more people you share it with.

    :boo: How do you like the film?
    :sleep: I've seen detergents that leave a better film than this!

    And those are all just from the Muppet Movie!

    :o: Ahh, a bear's natural habitat...a Studebaker.

    Christine (RIP): Look dad, it's a bear!
    Jerry (also RIP:cry:): That's a frog, Christine. Bears wear hats.

    :): I'm Kermit...I'm a frog.

    :fanatic:: Kermit, you're my hero...you're on my watch.

    Constantine: My name will go down as the greatest thief of all time!
    Dominic: You mean our names, right?
    Constantine: Of course. My name first, then spacebar, spacebar, spacebar...your name.

    Fozzie: I can't stand to live with myself
    Bunsen: Then I guess you'll have to find a bigger apartment won't you?

    Gonzo: Aw she's sick, shouldn't you and your wife be at home?
    Man: My wife IS at home.
    Gonzo: HamnaHamnaHamna Next table!

    Kermit: The frog is staying!

    Sam: It is the AMERICAN way.
    Gonzo/Rizzo: *Whsipers*
    Sam: uh...it is the BRITISH way.

    Gonzo: Wait, he died??
    Rizzo: This is supposed to be a kids movie!

    Fozzie: Oh what's this do?
    Bunsen: Oh nothing that's just a tape dispenser.

    Janice: I was totally tuning up my harp. (Just so random, right?)

    (Drawing a Blank)

    Gonzo: Oh those are just my nipples.
    Pepe: I feel dirty, okay?
    (Yes I know, vulgar joke, I like lowbrow stuff sometimes haha)

    Song Lyric: We'll keep giving the worlds (3rd) greatest gift, laughter!

    Kermit: Out of all of you only Animal could figure out it wasn't me? (maybe not a "direct" quote, but I remember being like, yeah Kermit what's up with that??)
