    It was another typical day at the 3976th ½… typical that is until something happened that fateful day; we open in Vic Romano’s office where MrsPepper was going over some ideas with him.

    MRSPEPPER: (Reading over a paper) … And this is the new thread killing technique developed at the 001st.

    VIC ROMANO: But will it work for us?

    MRSPEPPER: Oh I’m sure it will, believe me if Number One says it’ll work…

    Just then there was a bang at the door.

    VIC ROMANO: Who could that be?

    MRSPEPPER: I’m not sure, but I better find out…

    With that MrsPepper walked out of Vic’s office and to the front door where she was then met with Doc Hopper, Nicky Holiday, Long John Silver, Ed Singer, Dr. Hugo Krassman, and Rachel Bitterman.

    MrsPepper was startled to find the villains of the Muppet movies on the doorstep of the 3976th ½ T*K*O, what were they doing there? What did they want? Your guess is as good as ours!

    MRSPEPPER: Um… can I help you?

    DOC HOPPER: Where’s d’frog?

    K. EDGAR SINGER: Oh forget the frog, WHERE’S THE ALIENS?

    LONG JOHN SILVER: I don’t give a **** about either, where’s the bloody treasure?


    NICKY HOLIDAY: I was so close to having my sister’s Baseball Diamond in my red heads…

    BEAUREGARD: (Interrupts) What color are your hands now?

    MRSPEPPER: BEAU! (Back to the villains) What brings you here?

    The villains didn’t say anything; they simply grabbed MrsPepper and Beauregard and raced to the café, bringing Vic Romano, ThePrawnCracker, TogetherAgain, Vibs, and even Father Marty with them. Moments later the café was divided: MrsPepper, Vic, Prawnie, Toga, Vibs, and Beau against the Muppet movie villains.

    MRSPEPPER: What is all this?

    RACHEL BITTERMAN: On account of you being on the side of those stupid muffets, we challenge you all to a dodge ball game!

    Off to the side were AnythingMuppet, Judge RedBoobergurl, Officers ReneeLouvier and Furryredmonster, Dingo on parole, and the President of the 3976th, all eating hotdogs and popcorn? Just then Father Marty stepped in the middle of the court to lay down the ground rules.

    FATHER MARTY: Okay, now then, let’s have a clean match, I can’t stand the sight of blood… oh and uh, may the Lord bless and keep you all during this time of… well, not “friendly” competition… but competition nonetheless. Okay. Bless one and all.

    With that Father Marty left the court and blew his whistle to announce round one in which the villains all in unison pelted our heroes with dodgeballs.

    VIC ROMANO: Seven against six, this isn’t fair!

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: I don’t even understand what’s going on here, why are they attacking us?

    MRSPEPPER: Because the Muppets are our friends, and because of that…

    MrsPepper couldn’t finish her statement because at that time Doc Hopper threw his wooden cutout of Kermit the Frog right at her head. Before the others could do anything, Long John Silver started throwing crabs at everyone, one of which hit Prawnie in the face.

    CRAB: You know, now that I’m divorced I’m broke and need more money… you have an idea for a new blockbuster for me?

    Before Prawnie could answer, Dr. Mr. Krassman hit him in the face with a Biology book, meanwhile in the audience.

    OFFICER FURRYREDMONSTER: I really think we should place all of these hood ornaments under arrest!


    DINGO: its too bad Hacker was executed; he would’ve loved to see this!

    3976TH PRESIDENT: Oh will you guys just shut up? I’m trying to watch the game here!

    Just then Ed Singer pulled a stress ball out of his suit pocket and hurled it at Vibs’s head.

    VIBS: Aw, now I’m REALLY stressed out now-ish!

    ALL: VIBS!

    RACHEL BITTERMAN: Please, that joke was so lame!

    DR. HUGO KRASSMAN: Some of the stunts they’re trying to pull are lame; this isn’t anything like the movies!






    Just then Father Marty blew his whistle.

    FATHER MARTY: Fair enough, it’s time for the half time show anyway.

    With that, the Electric Mayhem was brought out to perform a half time show song.

    THE ELECTRIC MAYHEM: (Singing) Half time show! Half time show! Yeah yeah! No no! Half time show!


    FLOYD PEPPER: Hey man, chill out!


    JANICE: Fer shure.

    *Commercial Break*

    By this time our poor heroes were beat to the bone.

    VIC ROMANO: It’s no use, they’re too darn strong!

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: They’ve got a bigger variety of ammo than we do…


    DOC HOPPER: Hey, what’s the hold up here? We’d like to finish this game sometime today!

    DR. HUGO KRASSMAN: Oh, why don’t we just call the game, I’ve got to get tomorrow’s Biology lessons prepared!

    RACHEL BITTERMAN: Are you nuts? We can’t back out now, look they’re already ready to give up… just as I had

    NICKY HOLIDAY: Just like YOU planned?! Excuse me dear lady, but I do believe this whole thing was MY idea!

    DOC HOPPER: Now wait just a minute, I was the first villain in the world of Muppet movies, and if I remember correctly this was all my idea!

    As Doc, Nicky, and Bitterman continued their argument, Dr. Mr. Krassman dropped his ammo and left the building, meanwhile Long John Silver had quietly snuck into MrsPepper’s office and discovered a very small company safe in her private lunch parlor, he found a small piece of paper that had been slipped underneath the safe that read “In case of emergency, see D’Snowth for combination”. Meanwhile, back in the café…




    OFFICER RENEELOUVIER: Who do you thinks going to win?

    OFFICER FURRYREDMONSTER: I’ve got ten dollars that says our guys will win!

    OFFICER RENEELOUVIER: I mean who do you thinks going to win this argument?

    ANYTHINGMUPPET: Boy, I sure could use some more popcorn!



    OFFICER FURRYREDMONSTER: Why don’t you both shut up before we throw you in the heater?


    Back to the argument…




    K. EDGAR SINGER: ENOUGH ALREADY! This argument is wasting everybody’s time!

    DOC HOPPER, NICKY HOLIDAY, and RACHEL BITTERMAN: You keep out of this!

    K. EDGAR SINGER: (Sighs) I’ve had it! I’ve had it! I’m going home!

    With that, Singer left the building as well while Long John walked back into the café.

    LONG JOHN SILVER: Where’s D’Snowth?

    MRSPEPPER: Not here anymore luckily, why?

    LONG JOHN SILVER: I need the combination to the safe so I can get my hands on the treasure!

    MRSPEPPER: Oh shoot, I forgot to get the combination from him before he was fired…

    Suddenly MrsPepper was hit in the side of the head with an actual dodge ball thrown by Miss Bitterman.

    MRSPEPPER: (Snaps) Alright, that’s it, I’ve had it! There must be SOMETHING we can use against them!

    Just then Beauregard walked out of the kitchen with a huge pot of Custodian’s Surprise.

    BEAUREGARD: Soup’s on!

    VIC ROMANO: That’s it!

    With that, MrsPepper, Vic, and Prawnie grabbed the pot of Custodian’s Surprise and doused the remaining villains with the gooey, sticky substance.

    BEAUREGARD: You know, I’m really getting sick of you people using my cooking for everything other than the purposes of eating!

    RACHEL BITTERMAN: Oh my… oh, what IS this crap?

    NICKY HOLIDAY: My socks! My brand new socks… RUINED!

    DOC HOPPER: Suddenly I have no appetite!

    Yes the villains couldn’t budge as the surprise was working like a bottle of school glue.

    FATHER MARTY: Well, I guess I can safely say “game called on account of soup”!

    VIC ROMANO: (Correcting him) Surprise.

    FATHER MARTY: (Without missing a beat) Yes I am, this certain has been one surprising game of dodge ball.

    Vic shook his head as MrsPepper chuckled in relief.

    *Commercial Break*

    Later that evening after everything was cleaned up MrsPepper walked into the lounge where everyone else had gathered around the TV set.

    MRSPEPPER: What’s all the huh-bub?

    No one answered, but Vic pointed to the screen, signalling for MrsPepper to walk over to see what was going on. The screen revealed the exterior of a correctional facility in Florida.

    ANNOUNCER: an un-identified wimpy, greasy looking guy who was constantly heard shouting “I’ll get MrsPepper if it’s the last thing I do, I want my pen” has just made an escape attempt!…

    Everyone then turned towards MrsPepper.

    MRSPEPPER: Well, looks like I’ll simply have to file another restraining order.

    VIC ROMANO: You already filed one against that greasy guy?

    MRSPEPPER: No, I filed one against D’Snowth, after what that little weasel did to me, I don’t want him within three feet of my buffer zone!

    So MrsPepper walked out of the building for the night.

    FATHER MARTY: What in Heaven’s name did D’Snowth do to MrsPepper that would cause her to file a restraining order against him?

    THEPRAWNCRACKER: We don’t know.

    VIC ROMANO: And we never will.

    This was great!!! Dodgeball! Such an awesome sport (and an awesome movie) and all the villains! It was just hilarity! Great to see TKO episodes back up now that you're back Snowthy.

    Yeah, it's my favorite movie, too!

    Well Father Marty may not ever know the situation between you and Mrs.Pepper D'Snowth, but you can be sure he's remembering you both in prayer leaving you in the hands of God who knows all things and loves you both dearly.:halo:

    And he also loves his role in this episode as a dodgeball tournament referee.
    And also the cameo of the Electric Mayhem. Mrs.Pepper must have been delighted to see her husband performing with his group. :)

    Remind me of a really early episode where MrsPepper tries to make sure the 3976th 1/2 is in tip-top shape for when Floyd was coming for a visit... and then everyone gagged me and tied me up and left me in the corner when I was left in charge while she brought him over.
  6. MrsPepper

    BWAHAHA! I loved this! It was hilarious! I loved how I kept being hit by stuff... really great! Also it was a great idea to have T*K*O vs. the villains, with all of the recurring characters eating popcorn and watching.
    The joke at the end was funny, but sort of unrelated to the rest of the episode, so that sort of surprised me.
    REALLY great exchanges with our two officers, those made me smile big time.
    Nice EM cameo appearance.

    Overall, great job! :D One of the funniest ones we've done, I'd say.

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    But still somewhat related to the extent that Greasy Guy is a villain wanting his revenge against you, whereas the Muppet movies villains wanted revenge against the whole company.
  8. MrsPepper

    MrsPepper Active Member

    Yeah, true. Just the last 3 lines referred to what happened in another episode.

    I still loved it. :flirt:

    Awesome. I think the movie "Dodgeball" was horrible, but the game is okay.

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Aw well, I still like it, Officer.:halo:

  12. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well I'm glad you all liked this episode... because I'm afraid most of you all will probably hate the next episode.

    theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    *blink* ...Nah. ;)
  14. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well, I guess we'll just have to wait till next month to find out.

  19. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Ha! Bitterbuns was so funny in this! Still my favorite Muppet villian of all. A great all-cast episode! Nice lines from the reoccuring characters, and of course I always adore an episode where my Surprise makes itself usefull!
  20. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Yeah, why just before I was fired I had rolled some of that stuff up and put it in the freezer, and they came out just like little rubber bouncy balls! The neighborhood dog didn't want to play fetch with them though...
