Thank you both, LeahxZoot4Evur and muppetfan24/7!
Here's another request by Stan Davis. Enjoy!
GUEST STAR: James Taylor
STYLE: Mid Season 5 (Between Jean-Pierre Rampal and Tony Randall)
Pops is playing with a paddle ball, but keeps messing up. James then enters.
Pops: Hey, who are you?
James: I'm James Taylor. Hey, do you know if this is the place where I'm supposed to be doing the uhh...Muppet Show, tonight?
All of a sudden, in comes Beauregard slipping on something, Animal running around, and a whole bunch of mosquitoes flying around.
James: Yup. This is the place, alright.
TRUMPET GAG: Gonzo spits candy hearts out of his trumpet.
Gonzo: Well, how sweet is that?
Kermit: Hi ho and welcome again to The Muppet Show. Hey we're gonna have a great show for you tonight, because our guest star is that fantastic man of song, James Taylor.
Miss Piggy: And guess what, Kermie?
Kermit: Piggy, I'm doing the introduction right now. Don't interrupt me.
Miss Piggy: But, Kermie, it's important!
Kermit: Alright, alright. What is it?
Miss Piggy: Do you know what today is?
Miss Piggy: No, I mean the date.
Kermit: The 14th.....
Miss Piggy: Of? -gives Kermit calendar-
Kermit: -gulp- February!!!
Miss Piggy: Kermie, it's Valentine's Day! The most important day of.....love. And vous promised moi a date tonight AND a number in the show.
Kermit: The date, yes. The number, I can't.
Miss Piggy: Why not?
Kermit: Because all of the songs in the show tonight are songs that our guest star James Taylor has sung.
Miss Piggy: You would pull another Paul Simon.
Kermit: Well at least I PUT you in the opening number that night.
James: -comes out- Hey, Kermit?
Kermit: Oh look! It's our guest star, James Taylor! Yaaaaay!!!
James: Kermit, you might wanna hurry up with whatever argument you're having with Miss Piggy. The cactus are getting a little uhhh.....antsy.
Kermit: But, James, I thought ants don't exist in the desert.
Cactus: -runs onstage, covered in ants- AAAAAAAAHHHHH! That's what you think! AAAAAAAAHHH!!! -runs off-
Kermit: Yeesh. Alright, alright...James, you go get ready for your number. -James then goes back behind the curtain-
Miss Piggy: While VOUS and MOI have a little chat.
Kermit: Uh...oh....ummm ladies and gentlemen, here's our guest star opening our show tonight, James Taylor! -goes offstage, arguing with Miss Piggy-
OPENING NUMBER: Mexico sung by James surrounded by cactus in sombreros, tumbleweeds, a chupacabra, and other creatures.
Statler: Do you know what comes from Mexico?
Statler: Fleas. That's what comes from Mexico.
As James and the items and animals from the last number go off, Miss Piggy and Kermit are still arguing.
Miss Piggy: BUT YOU TOLD ME......
Kermit: I DIDN'T TELL YOU ANYTHING!!!!
Miss Piggy: WELL YOU JUST DID!!!
Kermit: WHO CARES WHAT I JUST SAID!?!?!?
Gonzo, Camilla, Floyd and Janice then come to the two's aide and stop the fight.
Gonzo: HEY HEY! HOLD IT!
Camilla: Bawk! (Stop!)
Kermit: What's the matter?
Floyd: Didn't you just say today was Valentine's Day?
Miss Piggy: -to Kermit- Told you.
Janice: Like, guys, Valentine's Day is supposed to be a day of love, not hate. But then again, like, I think every day should be like that.
Camilla: Bawk bawk bgawk bgawk! (That's not helping, Janice!)
Janice: Okay, like, sorry if I added in my own opinion.
Floyd: Uhhh what Jan was trying to say was is that you two should stop fighting. It's really annoying us.
Gonzo: Yeah, you guys have been arguing more lately than Gomez and Morticia Addams.
Floyd: Wait a second, they never fought.
Gonzo: Exactly. They should be more like them. Never fighting......does sword fighting count?
Kermit: Gonzo, Piggy and I can NEVER be like them. I don't even like French. And I'm pretty sure we all know why.....
Janice: Frog's Legs....
Kermit: DON'T SAY THAT!!! -goes onstage-
Miss Piggy: Humph! I hope he turns into frog's legs! -goes off-
MUPPET LABS: Bunsen invents a love potion, that makes the first object/person anyone sees intensely in love with it. Beaker tries it and falls in love with Bunsen.
As Bunsen is still running away from Beaker, he sets down the love potion. Floyd and Gonzo immediately spot it.
Gonzo: Hey, isn't that the love potion Bunsen just used a few minutes ago?
Floyd: I guess. Wait! I just came up with an idea.
Floyd: We give the love potion to Kermit, and then he'll fall intensely in love with Lady Porkchop.
Gonzo: And by WE, do you mean YOU?
Gonzo: What? Me? But why?
Floyd: I don't do stuff like that. And besides, I got a number to do. -goes onstage-
Gonzo: But Floyd.....-gulp- Well....it's just a love potion. Ha ha....what could go wrong?
MUSICAL NUMBER: How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You), sung by Floyd serenading Janice in a "Romeo and Juliet"-esque setting, balcony and all. When Floyd climbs up the ladder to kiss Janice, just before he can kiss her, the ladder falls, sending both him and Janice into the fountain.
Statler: Well, that was a "sweet" number.
Waldorf: Yeah, and it was a nice "fall", too.
UK SKETCH: NEWSFLASH
Newsman: Here's a Muppet News Flash! "France and Italy are still competing over the fact of which country is the most romantic country in the world, this Valentine's Day. While France has the view of the Eiffel Tower, Italy has its Italian Food and boat rides."
A French Whatnot and an Italian Whatnot then come onstage arguing and then start beating each other up, unfortunately getting the Newsman involved, too.
Kermit: NO!!! I don't even like pink lemonade.
Gonzo: Well, then you have left me with no choice.
Gonzo then forces the love potion down Kermit's throat, just as Camilla is coming down the stairs. The love potion immediately takes affect as soon as Kermit sets eyes on Camilla.
Camilla: BAWK!! (WHAT!!!)
Kermit: Come here...baby......
Camilla: BAWK! BAWK! BAAAAAAAAAWK! (AH! AH! NEAAAAAAAA!!!) -runs off, with Kermit chasing after her-
Gonzo: No! Camilla! Oh no...what have I done?
Miss Piggy: What HAVE you done?
Gonzo: Oohhh....I gave Kermit the love potion Bunsen made and he was supposed to fall for you, but instead he fell for Camilla!
Miss Piggy: WHAT!?!?!?! YOU GAVE KERMIT A LOVE POTION! AND NOW HE'S CHASING AFTER CAMILLA!?!?!?
Bunsen: I guess someone didn't pay attention to my explanation. The love potion makes anyone who takes it fall deeply in love with the first object/person they see.
Gonzo: Really? Lemme try. -drinks the love potion and sees a pen- Ooohh...pen. Hello, pen. No...I shall call you...Penny. Tell me about yourself, Penny. Do you like stunts? -goes off with the pen-
Miss Piggy: Good grief.
MUSICAL NUMBER: James sings Fire and Rain, in his dressing room, backed up with Floyd and Janice.
Immediately following the song, Miss Piggy enters the dressing room, in rage and heartbreak.
Miss Piggy: Ohohoho. Oh woah is moi.
James: Hey what's the matter, Miss Piggy? You sound like someone just broke your heart.
Floyd: Maybe the frog finally realized it. -chuckles-
Miss Piggy: I would karate chop you, Floyd, but moi's heart is too broken right now.
James: What's wrong?
Miss Piggy: MY FROG DUMPED ME FOR A CHICKEN!!!!! -cries-
James: Hey, Miss Piggy, it's okay. Everything will be alright.
Miss Piggy: No it won't! Gonzo gave my Kermie some stupid love potion and he fell for Camilla. And now Gonzo's in love with a pen.
Floyd: Awww why do I have to be the last man standing?
Miss Piggy: Oh you're taking it! YOU'RE TAKING THAT LOVE POTION, FLOYD!!!!
Floyd: What? Do I have......-Janice then whispers something to him and he nods- Do I really have to!?!?
Miss Piggy: Uh yeah, you do! Open wide, hippie boy!
Miss Piggy forces the love potion down Floyd's throat. He then immediately turns to Janice and falls deeply for her.
Floyd: Well hello, babe. Mmmmmmm you're looking fine tonight. You mind? -kisses Janice up her arm-
Miss Piggy: What? WHAT!?!?!?
James: Nice plan, Janice.
Janice: Like I've seen this stuff on TV before. I may be a blonde but I'm not that dumb.
Miss Piggy: Well sometimes blondes think alike, sister.
James: Well I guess your mind didn't think alike with hers this time.
Miss Piggy: There's only way to solve our problem.
James: Don't you mean YOUR problem. It isn't much Janice's problem since Floyd IS her boyfriend.
Miss Piggy: Oh zip it, Taylor. Surgery.
Janice: Surgery? Now? Well I don't know Miss Piggy.......
Floyd: Oh Jan, my baby doll -kisses her cheek a few times- be mine forever.
Janice: Oh, fer sure, honey. -Floyd kissees her cheek a few more times- Ooooh like you're so adorable when you do that........
Floyd: Will you marry me?
Janice: -turns to Miss Piggy, in shock- Let's do the surgery.
James: Well, that was a fast relationship.
Waldorf: Huh, I wonder why there's been nothing onstage for a while.
Statler: It's mushy gushy Valentine's Day. They have to focus on a plot somehow.
Waldorf: I know, but I'm getting a little bored of it.
VET'S HOSPITAL: Kermit (whom is still in love with Camilla), Gonzo (whom is still in love with "Penny" the Pen) and Floyd (whom is still desperate to marry Janice) are the patients in Vet's Hospital.
Announcer: And now, "Veternarian's Hospital", the continuing stooooooory of a quack whose gone to the dogs.
Dr. Bob: Yeesh, I thought this was Vet's Hospital, not Vet's Therapy.
Nurse Piggy: But this is an emergency, Dr. Bob. They need surgery.
Dr. Bob: Doesn't everybody?
Nurse Janice: Yeah, but like they need it because they're obsessed with love.
Kermit: Cluck. Cluck. Cluck.
Nurse Piggy: Oh Kermie, don't fall for that chicken.
Gonzo: -singing- Pretty Penny, walking down the street. Pretty Penny, the kind I'd like to meet.
Dr. Bob: Who's Penny? A penny?
Nurse Piggy: No, it's a pen.
Dr. Bob: That's freaky, falling for a pen. There might be cows in there.
Nurse Piggy: Not that kind of pen. A pen...the one you write with.
Dr. Bob: Well that's even freakier. -turns to Floyd- And what's his problem?
Floyd: Kiss me, Jan! -puckers lips, hoping for a kiss-
Nurse Janice: -puts hand over Floyd's mouth to stop him- Later!
Dr. Bob: Woah...he's on the Romeo try hard status alright.
Nurse Janice: Like, he wants to marry me.
Dr. Bob: That's a bad thing?
Nurse Janice: Like do you wanna raise kids, pay taxes and fight about him getting a legitimate job every day?
Dr. Bob: Suddenly, you have changed my opinion about marriage and life.
Dr. Bunsen Honeydew: -rushes onstage- Wait! I just made this antidote to cure their love problems. One sip of this, and they'll be back to normal in no time.
Dr. Bob: Hey! I'm the doctor here! Get off the stage!
Dr. Bunsen Honeydew: But I must, sir. It's the only way to cure them.
Dr. Bob: Okay, well then, I'm on break if anyone needs me.
Announcer: Wait, Dr. Bob, you can't just go off the stage like that in your own show.
Dr. Bob: What's the point of staying? I don't have a part in this plot. -goes offstage-
Dr. Bunsen Honeydew then gives the antidote to Kermit, Gonzo and Floyd and, instantly, all three of them are cured.
Kermit: Uhh...what happened?
Nurse Piggy: Ohhh Kermie! Kermie! You're okay! -hugs him-
Nurse Janice: Like Floyd....do you ever wanna marry me?
Floyd: Honestly, marriage is for losers who wanna waste their lives complaining to their husbands about finding legitimate jobs and arguing every day.
Nurse Janice: Do you love me?
Floyd: Jan, baby, of course I do. I love you with all my heart.
Nurse Janice: Oh Floyd! Like you're back to normal! -hugs Floyd-
Announcer: And so we come to the end of another "Veternarian's Hospital." Tune in next week when you'll hear Gonzo say......
Gonzo: What's this pen doing here? Oh well.....-bites on other side of pen-
Statler: Ugh. I hate soap operas.
Waldorf: Have you ever been to one?
Statler: Yes, and it was even close to clean.
James: Hey, I'm glad you guys are alright.
Floyd: Yeah, well we're fine now, James.
Janice: Yeah, like that antidote that doctor gave us rully helped.
Rowlf (still dressed as Dr. Bob): Yeah and I wasn't it.
Miss Piggy: Kermie? Is our date still on tonight?
Kermit: Well.....I guess so.
Miss Piggy: Oh goody! Yay! -kisses Kermit's cheek-
Kermit: Ummm...after the show?
Miss Piggy: Oui....I mean, yes.
Kermit: Well, we've had a pretty hectic show tonight, but let's calm things down now and bring back our guest star, James Taylor, for one final number! YAY!!!!!!!
MUSICAL NUMBER: James sings Your Smiling Face, in a bright sunlight setting (with a sunshine smiling down on him)
Kermit: Well, folks, I hope you've shown as much love as what love was spread tonight.
Floyd: And trust me, there was too much love on this show tonight.
Kermit: But before we wrap up tonight's show, let us say thank you again to our wonderful guest star.......
Floyd: Ladies and gentlemen...........
Both: James Taylor! YAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!
James: Thank you guys so much. Tonight was a blast for me. And look, I even found my lucky pen.
Penny The Pen: Oh James....you look so adorable. -sigh-
James: Thanks, Penny. Hey you wanna go for dinner, tonight.
Penny The Pen: I WOULD LOVE TO!!
Floyd: Hey, isn't that Gonzo's ex-girlfriend of 15 minutes?
Penny The Pen: Who?
Kermit: Uhhhh we'll see you next time on The Muppet Show!
(Goodnights: Kermit, Floyd, Penny The Pen, Miss Piggy, Janice, Gonzo, and Camilla)
Waldorf: Too much love?
Statler: I say there's too little love for us here.
Waldorf: If they love us so much here, they should let us go.....oh wait the show's over.
Statler: Oh, then, let's go.
-They try to leave, but the door to the balcony is locked-
Statler and Waldorf: AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!
Phew. This was a toughy to do. But I managed. I hope you all enjoyed it, though!
Oh I enjoyed it all right. I loved the part of Bunsen's love potion that attarcted Kermt and Camilla. Plus Janice and Floyd. With or without it, Janice & Floyd always love each other. Kermit belongs to Piggy. The love potion chaos was hilarious. I also love classic bits of Kermit and Miss Piggy fighting. I do remember the last time in a TMS episode where they were fighting right after Kermit fired Miss Piggy for being in a marriage scandal. Oops!
On the other hand, you like have done an excellent job on this outline. Plus I LOVE James Taylor. I don't really have a crush on him, but I Heart his music.
That's why I made that part where Floyd, when he takes the potion, was SO much in love with Janice, he WANTED to marry her. (In which, in reality, Floyd doesn't wanna marry Janice.)
great outline there i was hoping for James Taylor to sing Up On The Roof
Oooh I wasn't thinking....my fault. Sorry about that.
that's ok i'm just wondering what the setting would be if he sang that on the show
Well....I guess James would be singing this on the roof of a house, under a starry night. Perhaps he could be surrounded by some of the other Muppets, singing along with him.
GUEST STAR: Irene Cara (best known for her songs "Fame" and "Flashdance (What A Feeling)")
STYLE: Late Season 5
Pops is listening to an old time radio, when Irene enters.

Pops: Oh, Irene Cara. Hey, how's your Uncle Louie?

Kermit: Thank you, thank you and welcome again to The Muppet Show. Our very special guest tonight is one of the most up and coming stars of movies, including "Fame," and song, once again, including "Fame", Miss Irene Cara.
Kermit: Yes. The same title of her movie is the same title of her song. Now, can you picture that?

Kermit: Oh...right. But first, we have to have the beat go on..............
OPENING NUMBER: The Beat Goes On, sung by two whatnots dressed as Sonny and Cher. Unfortunately, Animal plays his drum part too fast for the whatnots to catch up, so they soon decide to tie Animal up. Animal then breaks free and attacks the whatnots.
Waldorf: Do you think the beat went on?
Statler: Nope. I don't hear any beat going on.
Kermit: Animal, what happened out there?
Animal: They can't keep up with beat!!!
Sonny whatnot: No, you just can't keep up with us, man.
Kermit: Scooter! Oh Scooter!
Scooter: -hurries with flowers in his hand- Yes, chief?
Kermit: Scooter, did you go flower picking again?
Scooter: Uh no, actually. These are for our guest star.
Kermit: Scooter....are you falling in love?
Scooter: Well....yes...and no....no...maybe yes. Okay yes....no....
Kermit: Make up your mind!
Scooter: Okay....I went to go see "Fame" a few weeks ago and immediately fell in love with Irene and her character....but mostly Irene. She's just so pretty and amazing and has a great voice.
Floyd: Scoots has fallen in love?
Kermit: I guess so.
Scooter: -sighs and holds picture of Irene- Oh Irene.....
Kermit: This backstage plot is gonna get a little messy tonight.
Scooter: Oh can I introduce Irene for her number?
Floyd: Might as well let him, Kermit. He's become a fan boy. -laughs-
Scooter: Ummm...ladies and gentlemen, it is my honor to introduce now our guest star: The lovely, talented, beautiful, powerful, sexy............
Kermit: -offstage- Scooter, just introduce her!
Scooter: Oh sorry.....Miss Irene Cara!
MUSICAL NUMBER: Sunshine Superman, sung by Irene, in a 1950's NYC business setting. A whatnot dressed as Superman and another whatnot dressed as Batman come along later and accidentally bump into the building.
Statler: Oh that Irene Cara is a very talented girl.

ILENE Cara: Ilene, Irene, there's a huge difference! Hello!
Waldorf: There's a very huge difference, alright!
Statler and Waldorf: Dohohohohoho
Kermit: Okay, way to go, Irene! Nice number!
Irene: Thank you, Kermit. Hey I got a question.
Kermit: Go ahead.
Irene: I hear someone has a crush on me here, do you know who it is by any chance?
Scooter: -nervously- No! No, he doesn't, Miss Cara.

Newsman: Here's a Muppet News Flash! "Toasters are going on strike against their owners, as their owners say that they don't provide crispy enough toast for morning rushes. So far, over 2000 toasters have let this strike against their owners since last week. They have taken revenge by toasting and burning their owner's feet." -sniff- -sniff- You smell something burning? -sniff- -looks down and notices his foot is being toasted- AAAAAHHHH!!! MY FOOT! IT'S TOAST!!!
Toaster: Not yet. It still needs butter to be toast.
(Irene's dressing room.)
Irene is feeding ILENE Cara, the caterpillar, when there's a knock on the door.
Irene: Come in.
Scooter enters, with the flowers still in his hand.
Irene: Oh hi, Scooter.
Irene: What's the matter? You look a little down.
ILENE Cara: Usually he's more up.
Scooter: Oh you know...I'm just wondering...ummm....you look really pretty.
ILENE Cara: Ding ding, Irene! We have a winner!
Irene: Ilene.....so......you're the one with the crush on me?
Irene: Make up your mind, man! Is it yes or no?
Irene: -sigh- Thank goodness. I kept thinking it was Animal. He hits on every girl on this show.
Animal: -running in- IRENE! IRENE! IRENE! IRENE!!!
Irene: Speak of the devil, there he is.
Animal: -sniffs Irene- Irene smell pretty.
Scooter: Ooooh...alright, I understand....I understand how this going to end up being.
Irene: Now, Scooter, wait a second. Don't leave me just yet.
Animal: What about me??

Kermit: Scooter, are you feeling okay?
Scooter: Chief....I'm in love.
Floyd: Is this about Irene Cara again?
Scooter: -sigh- Irene.
Floyd: Yup. I was right.
ILENE Cara: -now a butterfly, comes flying out of Irene's dressing room- WEEEE!!!!!
Kermit: Irene! What happened to you?
ILENE Cara: IRENE!!?!? SIR, I AM NOT IRENE CARA! I AM ILENE CARA, THE MONARCH BUTTERFLY!
Floyd: Yeah well, butterfly, I have a feeling that temper is going to make you loose your wings. -laughs-
Scooter: C'mon, guys, Ilene is harmless. She wouldn't hurt a fly.
Fly: -underneath Ilene- Well she just did.
Floyd: I'm sorry, I thought you were in love with Irene the singer, not Ilene the Butterfly.
ILENE Cara: He IS in love!
Kermit: With you?
ILENE Cara: IRENE, YOU IDIOT!
Kermit: Wah! Irene! The closing number!
Scooter: Don't worry, Kermit, I'll do it!
Floyd: Yeah, Kermit, let the supportive boyfriend/ #1 fan of Irene introduce the last number. I'm anklin' -goes onstage for the last number-

Kermit: Scooter, what's the matter?
Scooter: She dumped me.
Kermit: Well that was a fast relationship.
Scooter: And not a very good one either.
Kermit: Ummm but before we go, let us thank our very special guest star, ladies and gentlemen, Irene Cara! YAAAAAY!!!
Irene: Thank you, Kermit. -turns to Scooter- I'm sorry if our relationship can't work out, Scooter.
Irene: Hey but we can still be friends, though.
Scooter: I think I'd like that a lot more.
Irene: But there is someone who is willing of a relationship with you.
ILENE Cara: -flies in- ME!
Scooter: Oh no!
Kermit: Uhhh we'll see you next time on The Muppet Show!
(Goodnights: Kermit, Scooter, ILENE Cara, The Female Singers, Zoot and Animal)
Statler: Who was that girl again?
Waldorf: How should I know? I didn't remember her name.
Wow! That was a fun one! But I did try with this one, so it's not totally great.
great outline i have a question to ask who performs Ilene cara the caterpillar in this episode
Ok....so, guys, I AM taking requests for outlines.....HOWEVER, there needs to be a few rules established before I take requests.
1. Only 2 or 3 requests per user (I would still like to do some of my own outlines)
2. The celebrity you choose MUST be a celebrity famous during the time period of The Muppet Show ('76-'80/'81) (I don't wanna hear ANYTHING of Selena Gomez or One Direction or Nicki Minaj or whatever.....)
3. Please specify what season you would like your guest to be on (1-5; Early, Mid or Late; Between (this guest star) and (that guest star) ) (Sometimes, I may need to change it for certain purposes (say...promoting a certain movie/CD/TV show) )
4. No deceased celebrities before the time of TMS. (In other words, no celebrities that have died BEFORE 1975)
5. The celebrity MUST be a celebrity I am familiar with, as well. (If I am NOT familiar with the celebrity you chose, I can't do it. It'll only make it harder for me.)
6. Please PM me your requests. (Send me a private message)
7. I will work on your requests as soon as I can, so you may need to be patient. If I can't think of anything for a plot, I may need to require your assistance. (And please, I can only work on ONE REQUEST AT A TIME!)
So, as soon as you've read these rules, you can give me a request.
Awsome Job! You're a good writer!
GUEST STAR: Ann Reinking
STYLE: Mid-Late Season 4
Scooter: Ann Reinking! Ann Reinking! 15 seconds till curtain, Miss Reinking.
Ann: Oh gee, thanks, Scooter, I wish I could help right now but I'm helping someone out.
Scooter: What's the matter?
Ann: This little fella lost his mummy.
Little Mummy: WAAAAAA! WAAAA! WHERE'S MY MUMMY!?!?!
TRUMPET GAG: Gonzo gives Robin the opportunity to blow the trumpet, but Robin can't blow into it hard enough. He instead uses a kazoo.
Kermit comes onstage, dressed in attire suitable for the 1400s/1500s.
Kermit: Thank you. Hi ho and welcome again to The Muppet Show! Our guest star tonight is that alluring actress and dancer of Broadway and film, Miss Ann Reinking! And tonight, with Ann, we're going to tell the story of "Romeo and Juliet."
Scooter: Ummm, Kermit?
Kermit: What's the matter, Scooter?
Scooter: We might have a small issue involving "Romeo and Juliet."
Kermit: Issue? What issue?
Scooter: Well....how do I put this nicely......
Kermit: Scooter, I can take anything lightly. Now tell me.
Scooter:.....We couldn't get the scenery for "Romeo and Juliet."
Kermit: WHAT!?!?!?!?! WHAT DO YOU MEAN WE COULDN'T GET THE SCENERY!!?!?
Scooter: Beauregard bought the wrong scenery. I told him he had to get a setting for "1500's Verona, Italy."
Kermit: And what'd he get?
The curtain opens for the opening number, which looks like New York City. (And very bright lights)
MUSICAL NUMBER: On Broadway, sung by Scooter, Kermit, Gonzo, Fozzie, and male whatnots as they also try to do the opening scene to "Romeo and Juliet." During the song, from offstage, Floyd compliments, saying "Now that's MY kind of Shakespeare." and chuckles.
Statler and Waldorf are wearing sunglasses to protect themselves from the bright lights.
Waldorf: Were those bright lights bright enough for you?
Statler: Nope. They still seem pretty dim. These guys weren't the brightest I've ever seen.
Miss Piggy is rushing to Kermit, in her Juliet attire.
Miss Piggy: Kermie! Kermie! Kermie!
Kermit: What is it, Miss Piggy?
Miss Piggy: When is the balcony scene?
Kermit: The second act, but at this rate, I don't where we are in this show anymore.
Miss Piggy: Why is that, mon capitan?
Kermit: Beauregard messed up on the scenery.
Miss Piggy: I'll be right back......-goes off, karate chops Beauregard from off screen, then comes back-
Kermit: Piggy! Do you always have to result your ways to violence?
Miss Piggy: Why? Do you want one, too, buster?
Kermit: -gulp- No thanks. -goes onstage-
Kermit: Okay, so we officially don't have a legitimate scenery for "Romeo and Juliet." But that
isn't going stop us from doing our version of this timeless tragedy. And now, the party scene in "Romeo and Juliet," featuring our guest star, Miss Ann Reinking as Juliet.............
Miss Piggy: WHAT!?!!??! VOUS SAID MOI COULD BE JULIET!!!!!!
Kermit: But, Piggy.........
Miss Piggy: HIYA! -karate chops Kermit off the stage-
SKETCH/MUSICAL NUMBER: "The party scene (the scene where Romeo and Juliet first meet)" takes place in a 1930's nightclub, with Ann Reinking as Juliet, a lead dancer at the club, and three Mutations dancing with her. Sweetums is Ann's Romeo. Ann sings All That Jazz while dancing.
Waldorf: Oh that Ann Reinking is a fine dancer and singer, isn't she?
Statler: She was multitasking? I didn't even pay attention to the first three minutes of this sketch.
Kermit: Excellent job, Ann. Excellent job.
Ann: Thank you, Kermit. Hey, don't take this personally, but I really wanna play Juliet the rest of the show. If it's okay with you, of course.
Kermit: Well of course......
Miss Piggy: -butting in- NOT!
Ann: Oh, I almost forgot about Miss Piggy. How are you?
Miss Piggy: Don't talk to me, Reinking! I know what you want! My frog!
Ann: Actually, I was just thinking that YOU should play Juliet the rest of the show.
Miss Piggy: I......I........Oh....I....
Ann: Unless you want me to......
Miss Piggy: NO NO NO! I'll do it! Merci bocoup, Ann. No hard feelings?
Ann: None. -goes into her dressing room-
Kermit: Well...you two are becoming fast friends.
Miss Piggy: And fast enemies, too, frog.
The setting for today's Newflash takes place in a prehistoric cave.
Prehistoric Newsman: Ooga Ooga wug wug. Rog rog brock aag aag roo. Eer plo plo nill, goris dora, ooga hug frug. Yala yala bhor reck reck blur......
Newsman: I had an ancestor? Since when?
Prehistoric Newsman: Since this! -hits Newsman with giant rock-
UK SKETCH: MUSICAL NUMBER: Scooter, in 14/1500's attire, sings What Is A Youth? (Love Theme from "Romeo and Juliet" (The 1968 movie) )
Ann's dressing room
Ann is busy putting on makeup, when there's a knock on the door.
Ann: Come in.
Beauregard enters, upset.
Ann: Aww, Beau, what's the matter?
Beauregard: Mr. Bossman doesn't like the scenery I bought for the play. He says I messed it up.
Ann: Beau, it's fine. It might not be "Romeo and Juliet" but I still appreciate your effort.
Beauregard: Effort? What effort? -crying-
Ann: Okay, I think it's the best scenery for "Romeo and Juliet" ever.
Beauregard: -stops crying- Really?
Beauregard: Wow! You're the first person that's said that to me tonight uhhh uhhh....
Beauregard: Ann? Ann what?
Ann: Ann Reinking.
Beauregard: Ann Reinking? What's a Reinking?
Ann: Ohh boy. Hey listen, can you do me a favor Beau.
Beauregard: Sure. What favor?
Ann: How would you like to play Romeo in the balcony scene?
Beauregard: Who's Romeo? What balcony scene?
Ann: Mmmm, he might not be bright, but anything's better than getting karate chopped by Miss Piggy.
VET'S HOSPITAL: An Artist whatnot is the patient in Vet's Hospital. However, the lighting keeps changing during the sketch, turning it from black and white, to all sorts of different colors.
Statler: This show is making me color blind!
Waldorf: What? The show JUST made you color blind? It's been making me blind for years!
Kermit: Rowlf, what happened with the lighting?
Rowlf: I don't know. Maybe it was a Rainbow Connection! -laughs, along with Janice and Miss Piggy-
Ann: Kermit, I'm ready for the balcony scene.
Kermit: Oh good. Have you chosen your -thinking it's going to be him- dashing Romeo yet?
Ann: I have. And it's not you.
Kermit: Oh....then who is it?
Beauregard: What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east and Juliet is the sun....
Kermit: Oh no.....
Ann: Oh yes. I've made my mind up. C'mon, Beau.
Beauregard: Coming, nice lady!
Kermit: Uhh...and now, the famous balcony scene from "Romeo and Juliet," performed by....-shudders- Beauregard......and our guest star, Miss Ann Reinking! YAAAAAAY!
SKETCH: Ann and Beauregard perform the balcony scene from "Romeo and Juliet," in a setting similar to the balcony scene in "West Side Story." Even Beauregard, keeps messing up along the way, Ann does help him out along the way the best she could. The two then sing Tonight (from West Side Story)
Kermit: And even though Romeo and Juliet are up in a better world professing their love....somehow someday somewhere......
Ann: -comes onstage- Kermit! You spoiled the ending!
Kermit: Oh, sorry, Ann. I didn't realize it. -back to audience- Before we go, everyone, let us once again thank our guest star, the talented Miss Ann Reinking! YAAAAAAAY!!!!
Ann: Thank you, thank you.
Beauregard: -rushes onstage- Ooooh! Oooh! I finally know your name, lady.
Ann: Okay, Beau. What's my name?
Ann: Oh, Beauregard.
Kermit: Okay, we'll see you next time on the Muppet Show!
(Goodnights: Kermit, Beauregard, Miss Piggy, Scooter, the Artist Whatnot (from Vet's Hospital), and Rowlf)
Waldorf: When will we ever FINALLY leave this show?
Statler: How else?
Both: -singing- Somehow! Someday! Somewhere!
Unfortunately, I had to rush the last few parts, but overall, this was pretty good. And I LOVED including Beauregard in this one.
that was great episode
who perform these characters
Artist whatnot from Vet's Hospital
Both are performed by Jerry Nelson.
Awsome! Do you think you could make one involving Zoot?
That has to depend on the celebrity. Any in particular?
I dunno, Trisha Yearwood? Madonna? Lady Gaga? Which ever works.
Sorry about that.
