How do you think Lips arrived? Well, heres my way of how it happened. Zoot was sitting outside on the porch chair in the frontyard of the Muppet Boarding House, alone. The band was rehearsing inside, but he wasn't into it. But he brings his saxophone outside anyway. Zoot decided to go to the park to play his sax. Once he got there, he never knew what was going to come to him. Once he sits on the bench, he pulls out his saxophone and starts to play 'Mr. Saxobeat', the instrumental way. One Muppet was walking behind him he was an oger like Sweetums but smaller and starts hitting Zoot while saying how stupid his music is.( I love Zoot's music by the way.--LeahXZoot4Evur) After the oger left, Zoot's sax was all dent and Zoot was on the ground laying on his side. That ogre was very strong! He just layed there moaning in pain. Suddenly, another Muppet showed up to his aid. He helped Zoot up and grabbed his dent saxophone, he sets Zoot on the bench and hands him his sax. Zoot looks up to the Muppet who helped him, he had blonde frizzie hair and beard. He also has skin that also matches Janice's skin, but darker, he had what looks like mexican clothing on with maroon sandals on. Zoot looked into his eyes, which are squinted shut with purple eyelids, and smiled at him. The yellow Muppet smiled back. Zoot notices he had a trumpet on his back. He asks the Muppet his name. He was too shy. He didn't say anything. But whispers quietly his name. Lips. Lips looked at Zoot and apologizes about his saxophone. Zoot asked if he can play sax too. Lips nodded, as a 'no'. He said he plays trumpet. He took out his trumpet and started to play a few notes. Zoot was impressed! Zoot also notices that he was poor. He asks if he wants to stay with him. Lips nodded as a 'yes'. Zoot took Lips back to the Boarding House. Zoot had to limp all the way over there. Luckly, the blonde trumpeteer was by his side. Zoot had to rest once he got inside, but before he did, he introduced everyone to Lips. Lips, again, was shy to meet them. As Dr.Teeth called a doctor for Zoot, which by the way, he needed rest. Lips showed himself around, however, he did ran into Trumpet Girl/Delorese. Delorese fell in love with him instantly. Lips even took her on a date once while Zoot was in bed with casts, that was until he got a call from Janice, Zoot couldn't play sax in a month! Lips decides to take over for him, trumpet style. Once he stepped on stage in the Muppet Theater, he knew he was home. Once he finally got done with the show, he went back to the Muppet Boarding House to check on Zoot. Zoot told Lips that he saw the show, he was great!!! Zoot ruffled Lip's hair and Lips hugged him. Lips had a gift for Zoot, it was his saxophone, good as new! Zoot smiled at him. He thanked him for his sax, and hugs the guy. Heres what Lips has to say! "Zoot, was pretty much the bestest friend I ever had. I mean, I knew how to fix instruments, yes I fixed his saxophone. Heck, I'm just really happy that Zoot is always there for me, and I'm always there for him too, ya know? Delorese, man, she is the girl of my dreams! Yes, we've dated. Don't tell her, maybe I might engage to her, someday I will. Thank you for your time!'' ----Lips.
