    I like "We're Marley and Marley" from MCC. I doubt those two will ever die, but if they do they will return as ghosts to continue heckling! The perfect part for them, even if it doesn't follow the original CC!

    Game Comment

    I have a muppet game and it's The Muppets: On With The Show! and after kermit's banjo bayo seranade :)

    S: "There's nothing like good music."

    W: "And that was nothing like good music"

    I just like to play that comment.
  6. Some Statler & Waldorf quotes that I like:

    From Muppet*Vision 3D:

    Fozzie: How did you get here?
    Waldorf: We entered a contest.
    Statler: Yeah! We lost!

    From The Muppet Show with Dudley Moore:

    (after "She Loves You")
    Waldorf: Seeing a number like that always makes me nostalgic.
    Statler: Oh, yeah? Nostalgic for what?
    Waldorf: D.D.T.

    (during closing theme)
    Statler: So, they blew up half the theater.
    Waldorf: Well, at least they blew up the right half.
    Both: THEIRS!

    From The Muppet Show with Kenny Rogers:

    (during the theme song)
    Both (singing): Why don't they make things funny?

    (during closing theme)
    Waldorf: (notices Statler wearing a hardhat) What's the hardhat for?
    Statler: I wanna be ready in case they start throwing pigs at us again!

    From The Muppet Show with Paul Simon:

    (after "Baby Driver")
    Waldorf: Something should be done about those baby drivers.
    Statler: Do you think they should be booked?
    Waldorf: No! Burped!

    From The Muppet Show with Joel Grey:

    (after "Wilkommen")
    Waldorf: Another star in the tradition of the late great Boris Klinger.
    Statler: Boris Klinger? Why you old fool! Boris Klinger was the worst music hall act to ever step onto the stage!
    Waldorf: In your opinion maybe, but more than 2,000 people attended his final performance.
    Statler: Yes, yes. Half of them brought the tar and the rest brought the feathers!

    From The Muppet Show with Bob Hope:

    (during closing theme)
    Waldorf: Doesn't Bob Hope usually sing "Thanks for the Memories"?
    Statler: Why would he want to remember this?

    I might post more some other time.

    Bye now.

    YEyeyeyeyeyyeyeye for Statler and Waldorf yeyeyyeyeyeye!!!

    :boo: !
    :sleep: !

    It was rather funny... At my Gym (Gymnasie means College-ish in danish, but not quite.. um...) I saw a Statler and Waldorf - um something on the noticeboard! It was in german, but I'll try and recall it and translate it:

    Statler: I feel old...

    Waldorf: You can still feel?

    ... ish?
  18. Fozzie Bear

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    Go ahead. That's Statler and Waldorf!!
  19. Well, by request, I will now post some of my favorite S&W comments from the "From the Balcony" spots:

    From the test show:

    W: Each week, we'll be telling you what to see and what to avoid.
    S: Avoid Paris Hilton!
    W: I stayed there once.
    S: Who hasn't?

    From Episode 1:

    S: "War of the Worlds" is this summer's "E.T.". Well, except instead of enjoying Reese's Pieces, the aliens enjoy insinerating all of humanity.

    (after hearing "You have nothing to worry about" in the "War of the Worlds" trailer)
    S: Uh, oh. When someone says that, start worrying.

    (after previewing "Bewitched")
    S: Obviously, "Bewitched" is pure fantasy.
    W: Why? Because witches don't exist?
    S: No! Because a guy like Will Ferrell could NEVER get a woman like Nicole Kidman!

    S: Look for Will next in the big screen version of "I Dream of Jeannie", where he'll ask Jeannie to make "Bewitched" disappear!

    From Episode 2:

    S: Did you hear about Sylvester Stallone making that new "Rambo" movie?
    W: No, I didn't hear that.
    S: Well, he tried to get on a plane with the script, but he was mauled by bomb-sniffing dogs!

    S: That Johnny Depp is everywhere! What's he got that I haven't, besides youth, good looks, virility, fame, wealth...
    W: ...functioning kidney, gallbladder, hip...
    S: Alright! Alright! Alright!

    From Episode 3:

    S: If I wanted to see outlandish stories about the military, I'd turn on Fox News.

    (after previewing "Stealth")
    S: In "Stealth", Jamie Fox does what many academy award-winning have done with their follow-up films.
    W: You mean, he stretches further as an actor?
    S: No, he cashes in!
    (They laugh.)
    W: Wait. If this plane was really super-intelligent, why did it choose this screenplay?
    (They laugh.)
    S: I even heard Jamie Fox almost walked off the set.
    W: Why?
    S: He was mad that the plane had a bigger hanger.
    (They laugh)

    (after previewing "The Island")
    W: This is one of the movies that would have me sitting on the edge of my seat right from the beginning.
    S: Because of the suspense?
    W: No, because I can't wait to leave!

    From Episode 4:

    (after previewing "Duece Bigalow: European Jiggalo")
    W: Next year, look for part 3, entitled "Duece Bigalow: Straight-to-video Jiggalo"!

    (after previewing "The Dukes of Hazzard")
    W: Do you think people will protest this movie?
    S: Because there's a confederate flag on top of the car?
    W: No, because Jessica Simpson has a speaking part.

    From Episode 5:

    W: Frankly, I can't believe this show is still on the air! I thought we'd be cancelled by now.
    S: Or at least they would've replaced you with Kelly Ripa.

    S: In "Red Eye", Rachel Nick Adams boards an airplane and finds a terrifying surprise.
    W: Yeah. The in-flight movie is "The Island"!

    (after previewing "Red Eye")
    S: Rachel Nick Adams is really on a hot streak. First, there was "Mean Girls" and then "The Notebook" and "Wedding Crashers".
    W: If she wasn't on the verge of stardom, "Red Eye" would be a one-way flight direct to the video store.

    this has probably already been quoted, but

    Waldorf: what?, I slept through the whole thing
    Statler: well, you didn't miss much
