Don't worry Beau, there's already some great dialogue planned for my next story... but we'll get to that some other time. . Meanwhile, I'll just... post the other deleted scene! This one comes... actually, this one is kind of self-explanatory. Was cut for length issues. Ready? Here we go! Deleted Scene 2 Kermit got up and went to the theater very early Saturday morning, just like he had told the others he would. He wanted some time alone in the theater, just to go over a few things. The others had not been worried or surprised at this decision. It was opening night. He started with the stage. The set was very elaborate. It had been built on wheels, so that any one of three different locations could be used simply by turning the entire set to the correct scene. In the center of the set was a weeping willow that could be seen in almost every act. Kermit turned the set a little, then turned it back. He walked over and sat down under the weeping willow. The week had practically been solid rehearsals. Whatever time had been left was spent working out all sorts of issues, making last-minute changes, and talking to the press. Kermit sighed. The press. The questions never seemed to end. They had "usual" questions, like "What exactly is the status of your relationship with Miss Piggy? And do you date any other women?" Sometimes Kermit felt like even he didn't know the truth, so he answered those questions differently every time. Then there were the general "pre-show" questions, like "How long have you been working on this show? Do you think it will do well with any particular audience? Will it do well in general?" Those questions were fairly easy, especially since Kermit had been answering them for as long as he had been in show business. But there were new questions, too. Questions like, "Is it true that The Muppet Theater has been having financial issues? What about security problems? What about the rumors that a police officer was murdered in the theater? Do you feel responsable for that? What do you have to say to that officer's family? Is your theater dangerous?" Kermit had tried to be honest, and straighten out the rumors, but it was tiring. He had started telling reporters that, so long as Crazy Harry, The Great Gonzo, some monsters, and "a certain pig" were on the cast list, The Muppet Theater would always be somewhat dangerous. But there was no time to think about that now. It was opening night. The other Muppets would be getting there soon. Kermit got up and continued to examine the rest of the theater.
