    MRSPEPPER: (Exits office and blows air horn) What the heck is going on here?

    Vic Romano and D’Snowth both babbled to MrsPepper, who simply blew the air horn again.

    MRSPEPPER: Look at you two, you’re acting like little kids! We need to settle this dispute like adults!

    D’SNOWTH: You mean we get to be on a trashy talk show?

    MRSPEPPER: That’s not a bad idea!

    ANNOUNCER: Live, from Muppet Theatre, it’s The Johnny Fiama Show, with our host with most, who also has a monkey body guard, Johnny Fiama!

    JOHNNY FIAMA: Thank you, thank you very much! Good evening everybody, I am Johnny Fiama, and the little monkey sitting on the couch is my monkey body guard, Sal Manilla!

    SAL MANILLA: (Scarfing down a canola) Hiya!

    JOHNNY FIAMA: Our guests for tonight are a couple of thread killers, who hang around the Muppet Central forums killing threads. Ladies and gentlemen, say “Hello” to Vic Romano and D’Snowth. (Cheers) Ugh guys, that’s my monkey body guard, Sal.

    SAL MANILLA: Hi there! Oh, would you care for a canola?

    VIC ROMANO: Ugh, no thank you!

    JOHNNY FIAMA: Alright, I received a very reliable tip about these two’s little ordeal. We will now here from Vic Romano…

    D’SNOWTH: Can I go next?

    SAL MANILLA: (Eating another canola) Oh sure you can, but I bet my money on him.

    VIC ROMANO: Well, it all started this morning…(Flashbacks) I was reporting to D’Snowth’s office as usual, I needed the files to hand out to the others so they kill the right threads.

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: Good morning, friend D’Snowth!

    D’SNOWTH IN FLASHBACK: (Depicted as a revolting fat slob with tattoos) Yeah, what happened? (Eats a pencil)

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: (Frightened) D’Snowth?!

    D’SNOWTH IN FLASHBACK: (Sucking rubber bands like spaghetti) I suppose house-boy wants his files?

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: Why yes D’Snowth, that’s what I’m…

    D’SNOWTH IN FLASHBACK: (Slaps files in Vic’s face) Here and I hope ya choke on ‘em!

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: Why thank you D’Snowth! Oh, is there anything you should fill me in on?

    D’SNOWTH IN FLASHBACK: Get outta my life you nitwit!

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: (Frightened) Yes D’Snowth! Right away D’Snowth!

    VIC ROMANO: (Narrating) I no sooner had finished handing out all of the files to the thread killers, when I discovered That Announcer wasn’t in. D’Snowth was supposed to fill me in on this, so I had a talking with him.

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: Dearest D’Snowth, why did you not inform me of That Announcer’s sick day?

    D’SNOWTH IN FLASHBACK: (Hops onto desk revealing he’s in his underwear) Hey listen punk, I could care less about your thoughts about That Announcer, so why don’t you just go back to your little sissy weekly visuals?

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: “Sissy”?! Why you dirty little pouch-ed rodent!

    VIC ROMANO: (Narrating) I had never been so insulted in my life, so I punched him in the face… but that didn’t work as he kicked my in the gut. So then we broken out into a full-scale fight…complete with the same old dust cloud we’ve used many times before! (End Flashback) And that’s what REALLY happened. The end.

    D’Snowth started laughing hysterically. Sal didn’t understand what was going on, so he joined the laughter, pretty soon the audience did as well.

    JOHNNY FIAMA: (Chuckles) Oh well, before we go to the break, does anyone in the audience have a question for our first guest?... Yes, you sir!

    ERINE81981: Describe that tattoo you said he had that said “I Heart Elizabeth Montgomery”.

    VIC ROMANO: (Nervous) Ugh, I have no comment at this time.

    SAL MANILLA: I do! I was right on his stomach, and it read “I Heart Elizabeth Montgomery”. The heart of course was big and red, while the letters were green. I once wanted to get myself a tattoo that read “I Heart Johnny Fiama”, but I’m not that kind of monkey, then…

    JOHNNY FIAMA: (Interrupting) Alright, alright Sal, calm down. We’ll be right back after these messages, but first, I would to say that my new book, “For Johnny’s Eyes Only” will be out this spring, along with the new “Work Out with Johnny” DVD series, and the “Adventures of Johnny Fiama” comic books.

    SAL MANILLA: Oh, and don’t forget…

    JOHNNY FIAMA: Oh yeah, and Sal’s new CD, “Monkey Love” will be due this holiday season. (Back to the point) These are our guests Vic Romano and D’Snowth folks, will be back with more of The Johnny Fiama Show right after these commercials, don’t go anywhere!

    Commercial Break

    The Johnny Fiama Show was still on its break. Sal was talking with D’Snowth while the cameras were off.

    SAL MANILLA: Hey, if you become a big star after this, can I have your autograph?

    MrsPepper, TogetherAgain, and Vibs were sitting in the first row of the audience, talking about how Vic and D’Snowth were making fools of themselves.

    MRSPEPPER: Alright, you heard the man, we’re talking about how Vic and D’Snowth are making fools of themselves!

    TOGHETHERAGAIN: Yeah, how can they start WWIII over a silly little thing about That Announcer taking a sick day?

    VIBS: Boys will be boys. (Beat)

    Instead of MrsPepper and TogetherAgain’s usual reactions…

    MRSPEPPER: Yeah.

    TOGETHERAGAIN: That is so true. It makes me proud to be a girl.

    VIBS: You said it, girlfriend!


    JOHNNY FIAMA: Hey, welcome back to The Johnny Fiama Show! I just wanted to point out that the show is NOT a Letterman rip-off, as someone did comment on earlier. Were here with thread killers, Vic Romano and D’Snowth, once good friends who now hate each other’s guts. We just heard Vic’s side of the story, we will now here from the kid with the glasses, Demount.

    D’SNOWTH: That’s D’Snowth, Johnny.

    JOHNNY FIAMA: Whatever.

    D’SNOWTH: Well, let me start off by saying, I’m glad you’re finally allowing some truth on this show! (Audience oohs) And second… (Looks to camera) Hi mom, hi dad, hi Tommie, hi David!

    JOHNNY FIAMA: Ugh, can we get back to your story?

    D’SNOWTH: Oh yeah? Well Johnny, what really happened is… (Cue Flashback) I was busy filing my reports for our C.E.O., MrsPepper, for a love to please her. It was my duty to hand out the daily reports to Vic, who is chief thread killer. I receive an intercom buzz from MrsPepper that our vice thread killer, That Announcer called in sick. Seeing as MrsPepper and I were the only one’s who really needed to know that, I didn’t really have to say anything to Vic, but…

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: (Depicted as a giant rat/humanoid) Hey ya little runt, where’s those bleep files, you bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep! (He really actually IS saying “bleep”).

    D’SNOWTH IN FLASHBACK: Oh Vic, I wish you wouldn’t call me a bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep. (Nervously) Here are the daily files you need sir.

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: (Snatches files) You’re so little and I’m so big, I could swat ya like a fly! (Does so) And I better not see ya ugly mug again!

    D’SNOWTH: (Narrating) With that, Vic busted down the door, and no sooner had he left, then he ran back into my office, and tackled me!

    D’Snowth describes the ordeal as Vic literally tackling him, and why he’s on the floor, pumling him.

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: (Pumling D’Snowth) You little idiot, where the bleep is That Announcer?!

    D’SNOWTH IN FLASHBACK: (Frightened) He called in sick!

    VIC ROMANO IN FLASHBACK: Why didn’t you tell me you bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep bleep?!

    D’SNOWTH: (Narrating) I did the only thing I could, so I socked him one, and then…

    D’Snowth and Vic literally get into each other’s face and start yelling. As D’Snowth’s flashback ended, the two actually were in each other’s faces yelling. Johnny then called for another commercial break. Sal walked over to the arguing thread killers.

    SAL MANILLA: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Save it for the camera! You guys are awesome, you two should be on Springer!

    MrsPepper, TogetherAgain, and Vibs were all staring at Vic and D’Snowth with disappointed faces.

    JOHNNY FIAMA: Alright, were back. Before we hear from the audience, I just wanted to point out that the new Men of Muppets Tonight calendar will be on sale next month. I don’t want to brag or nothin’, but I am Mr. April, and half of May. And now, we will hear from the audience… yes ma’am, what do you have to say to out guests?

    MRSPEPPER: I just wanted to say you two sound like a couple of kids up there! Those are possibly the most childish flashbacks I ever watched! Why don’t you two just forget about the whole thing, forgive each other, and move on so we can get back to killing threads?

    Vic and D’Snowth just sat their, as they started looking ‘down’.

    JOHNNY FIAMA: We’ll be right back after these messages.

    As the make up people starting fixing up the two…

    D’SNOWTH: Vic… I’m sorry I told you to mind your own business.

    VIC ROMANO: Yeah? Well, I’m sorry I over reacted, I guess I really should’ve asked first.

    BOTH: Let’s be friends again.

    SAL MANILLA: (Starts crying) Aw, these moments are so beautiful! You guys should have your own shows!

    JOHNNY FIAMA: Welcome back to the show, were here with Vic Romano and Dipole. Vic, D’Towel, before we end this show, do you have any last comments?

    BOTH: We decided to be friends again.

    The audience then got up and left.

    ERINE81981: This is bad television.

    JOHNNY FIAMA: You idiots, you ruined my Letterman rip-off! Get off of my set now!

    So the thread killers exited the building.

    SAL MANILLA: Hey wait, what about my autographs?!

    Commercial Break.

    Back at the 3976th ½…

    MRSPEPPER: (Happily sighs) Peace and quiet.




    THE END​

    Wow, the only episode in history to not have any viewers what-so-ever!!!

    Does this mean we won't be coming back for a third season?
  3. TogetherAgain

    TogetherAgain Well-Known Member

    Well I thought it was good. Especially how Mrs.Pepper, Vibs and I were proud to be girls... and then at the end, Vibs and I started fighting. That was funny.
  4. MrsPepper

    MrsPepper Active Member

    Yes. There was some serious imbalance of the male and female hormones for awhile... since Vibs was only recurring, and we didn't have Toga. ^^ Girl power!

    I liked this one, DS. With all due respect, it's not one of your better examples of the story flowing; it seemed a little haphazard, especially at the beginning. But I thought it was hilarious. Hopefully you don't mind my critiquing.

    I've been thinking, you do think, after this season, that we should downgrade to periodical tv specials, sort of like the Muppets? Maybe a television movie... but with our audience (WHY are they gone??? TKO is good! Good I saaaay. We killed our own series! What a paradox) I don't think we could do another succesful season.
  5. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Yeah, well. you and Vibs are friends, but it's not exactly a perfect relationship.:smirk:

    Oh snap, MrsPepper Ziffeld me!
  6. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I mean whatever happened to page after page of good times? The only ones who view anymore are you, me, TogetherAgain, Prawnie, FurryRed, and occasionally Beauregard. Where's Vibs? Vic, I can understand, he's swamped right now. You know what I think? I think it's because (no offense here), but I noticed, people were excited before thee new season began, but it seems like once they found out KermieBaby47 actually got replaced by TogetherAgain, that might have disappointed them since in last season's finale we made remarks of about "how could we ever replace him?" And I think, another thing too, this season has WAY to many stories with off-topic plots (meaning their about everything but thread killing).
    My third view: The Moppet Family is killing us!
    Fourth thought: No TA to make colorful editorial comments.

    But seriously, I was looking forward to maybe possibly at least four good seasons (like most succesful shows these days)

    I would have responded earlier, but I was off at a Christmas concert, and then me and my family went out to dinner with my best friend and his family where we exchanged early Christmas gifts. Very good story, I love it when a TV show does a Rashomon spoof.

    So I guess the ratings aren't really dropping after, I guess they're holding pretty steady.

    Oh wow, very cool ratings check. Good to know our official stats.

    And I promise I WILL upsate the site soon! I'm getting really far behind. Nearly holidays now..

    *Waits* Are we there yet?
  11. MrsPepper

    MrsPepper Active Member

    No, not for awhile unfortunately. **pouts** Worst holiday schedule ever.
  12. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    Well at least give us an in-flight movie, or something to keep us amused while we skive off our duties! oops....

    theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    Here I am! Here I am! Sorry Snowthergeist! I was gone all weekend! But wow! I loved this one! Great flashbacks! And MrsP., Vibs, and Toga were awesome! :D
  14. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Here I am Beau-re-bear to tell you jokes both old and...wait..is that my line?

    Ok, ok, ok. I'm sorry I didn't reply before!

    I have just been...busy. Very busy. Also, Vibs hardly gets time to visit MC any more, hardly even time to play Vibs and Viq in MopFam, but I keep her updated on T.K.O.

    I think the rating dropping may be to do with the lack of structure this season, (not critizing, just trying to help). Many of the episodes have been flash-backish, and also not all the characters have had reg. roles. Hmm...I don't know. Maybe we gotta go out and kill more threads and get some attention. :p
  15. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    No Beau, I know where you're coming from, too many episodes this season aren't even centered around any time of thread killings or life at T*K*O what-so-ever. I'm working hard at fixing that!
    So Vibs is aware that she's now a regular and no longer a recurring character?
  16. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    No problem! I don't know about Vibs..hmmm....I think she's just busy ala Vic.
