    I know we've had a thread like this before, but that's okay. I've thought of more S & W quotes from last time. By the way, Extell. Were you referring to the opening from the Harry Belafonte episode? Because they have been seen in that episode even after they say that. Just thought I'd bring that up. Let me see:

    Statler: Boy, he's really good, that Rudolf Nur-i, Nure... You know, I really should learn how to pronounce his name.

    Waldorf: Don't bother. After this show, he'll probably change it.
    Waldorf: You know, the opening is catchy.

    Statler: So is smallpox.
    (After Fozzie recieves an electric shock)

    Waldorf: What did you think?

    Statler: Shocking.

    Waldorf: But was it funny?

    Statler: No. That would really be shocking!

    Another great one is when Kermit is harrassed by Foo-Foo on stage, and he yells for Piggy to get the dog off.
    Statler: "You think this show constitutes cruelty to animals?"
    Waldorf: "Not unless you're watching it" :p

    Too funny!

    In the opening theme used for the Vincent Price episode on the Time-Life video; I forget what the original episode this opening theme was used for:

    Statler & Waldorf: *crying* Why us?

    At the end of the Steve Martin episode:

    Statler: Well, that was different.

    Waldorf: Yup. Lousy...

    Both: ...but different!

    BTW, Daffyfan, that one about the smallpox is one of my favorites!

    Actually you do see them again. This one they did two versions of: one on the Rich Little episode, one on the Harry Belafonte episode, and in both they were present for the rest of the show.

    My favorites:

    Marisa Berenson ep:

    (After a Russian opening #)
    S: Well, there goes detente.
    W: Where?!
    S: ...Never mind.

    and later

    S: Is your hearing aid fixed?
    W: No.
    S: Then how do you know what I'm saying?
    W: I don't!
    S: Oh. (does double take)

    End of the Paul Simon episode:
    S: Hey you old fool, you slept through the show!
    W: Who's the fool? You watched it!

    End of the Edgar Bergen ep:
    W (in box, alone): He shouldn't have jumped. The show's not that bad!

    But my all-time favorite has got to be:

    End of the Don Knotts ep:
    S: This show is awful!
    W: Terrible!
    S: Disgusting!
    W: See you next week?
    S: Of course.

    Gotta love it.

    That was originally from the Bob Hope episode. I was sort of shocked that they didn't use the original opening credits for the Vincent Price episode. I didn't think Time Life cut anything out. Oh, well. Seeing a first season episode without it's original opening credits is better than not seeing it at all. Anyway, back to the original subject. I think the best S & W quotes come at the beginning and at the end of the show. Oh, I thought of some more. On the subject of Shakespeare:

    Statler: That really offended me. I'm a student of Shakespeare.

    Waldorf: No. You were a student WITH Shakespeare. (Love the expression on Statler's face after that) and from "Muppets Tonight:"

    Waldorf: Shakespeare would have hated that.

    Statler: You should know. You dated his sister.

    Waldorf: Boy was she ugly.

    THAT was it! I knew it was from one of the tapes that we had (before Mom decided to cancel the subscription :mad: )

  9. Daffyfan4ever

    Daffyfan4ever Well-Known Member


    Why would your mom want to cancel the subscription? These are classic. It was probably a money saving thing, wasn't it?
  10. From the Roger Moore ep.:

    Waldorf: What a touching scene: 0-0-7 and 7-0-0.
    Statler: 7-0-0? Is that Miss Piggy's code name?
    Waldorf: No! It's her weight!

    From the Senor Wences ep.:

    Statler: Personally, I don't care for puppets much. I don't find them believable.
    Waldorf: I don't believe you.

    From the Liberace ep.:

    Waldorf: Greek music. Very appropriate for the pigs.
    Statler: The pigs are from Greece?
    Waldorf: No. The pigs are greasy.

    From the Denny's commercials:

    Statler: $2.99? That's a problem.
    Waldorf: Why?
    Statler: It's a deal so good even we can't complain.

    From the Weezer music video:

    Waldorf: They aren't half bad.
    Statler: Nope. They're all bad.

    I might post more when I think of them. Statler and Waldorf are hilarious...and in a way they make good foils for the other muppets.

    Here's another good one:

    After Debbie Harry sings "One Way or Another:"

    Statler: I wonder who she was looking for.

    Waldorf: Probably the guy that booked her on this crummy show.

    Extell New Member


    Sorry, but I have not seen the Muppets Show in over 10 years! I can never find it on TV. I may one day have to break down and look for the episode collection on DVD.

    Daffyfan4ever Well-Known Member


    You should order the collection from Timelife. Belive me, it will be worth it.

    From the Juliet Prowse ep.:

    Waldorf: More! More!

    Statler: Same as it ever was.
    Both: Terrible!

    From the John Goodman ep. of "Muppets Tonight":

    Statler: There's nothing like good old comedy.
    Waldorf: Nothing like it on this show!

    From the Jason Alexander ep. of "Muppets Tonight":

    Statler: That number was a real show-stopper.
    Waldorf: Too bad it didn't stop this show.

    From the Tony Bennett ep. of "Muppets Tonight":

    Statler: What's that song that Tony Bennett always sings?
    Waldorf: "I Left My Heart in San Francisco".
    Statler: Big deal. I left my teeth in Minneapolis.

    From "Muppet-Vision 3D":

    Statler: Hey, look! Look at the guy in the Goofy mask!
    Waldorf: That's not a mask.
    Statler: Oh. Sorry, lady.

    Statler: Oh, Waldorf, it's that dumb bear again!
    Waldorf: Yeah. Hey, bear, you're not even funny in 3D!

    Waldorf: We entered a contest.
    Statler: Yeah! We lost!

    Statler: This is a very moving moment.
    Waldorf: Yeah. I wish they'd move it to Pittsburgh.

    Statler: Ooh! Aah! Oh!
    Waldorf: Enjoying the fireworks?
    Statler: No! Your chair is on my foot!

    Waldorf: Do we have time to go to the bathroom before the next show?
    Statler: We can't, you old fool! We're bolted to the seats!

    W: Neither did the Kaiser.

    W: Statler....My foot's asleep.

    S:And so the waiter says, "Excuse me, but you're dancing with my umbrella!"
    (Both laugh hysterically.)
    W: I told it funnier yesterday.

    S: Waldorf, either that clock stopped, or we just died.
    :D :D :D :D
