    <runs in, very much out of breath>

    ....ok.....I... read.... up to.... um.... Jerry Stinger? Yeah, Jerry Stinger, with Beaker meep meep and... I love what I've read, love every inch of what I've read, and I can't wait to read more, and I would read more, except... it's late, and I have to teach tomorrow morning... and I have my own stuff to write, so... But Beau, I wanted to tell you, I have FINALLY started reading this excellent, wonderful script, and I keep laughing and laughing and.... <collapses>

    Ain't it just amazing what insomnia does to me? Now I've read all that's been posted, I love it, and I'm ever so impatiently waiting for more. As usual.

    bEau I just want t comment, i can't remember if I have or not. These scrips are amazing, and you and everyone who wrote them deserve 10 gold stars each. But it's taking me a while to read through them so i'm a little behind! :concern: So I don't have alot of specific things to comment on just yet.

    Sorry for the spelling errors.. I don't feel like fixing 'em.

    No problem with the spellings, Pepper, thanks for commenting!

    I thought of you while I was posting, cause there's a whole bunch of Sal in there!!!

    Oh, you though of me, eh? Excellent. Though this Sal is much funnier than my version is!
    So, yay, I'm FINALLY up to date! I LOVE the bits with Sal and Johnny, i can't get enough of those two. They crack me up.
    So, here's the verdict, with as much constructive critism that I can pack into one post! ;)

    Parts I liked:
    The Jerry Stinger bit with the meeping - that was just good clean fun, in my opinion, as Beaker is just being misinterpreted, and Jerry Springer has a history of taking things way out of control. Compared to some other references, this one is very mild.
    Piggy exchange with the sandwhich - that was gold. Complete mayhem, I loved it.
    The courtroom - love the fact that it was sung! Made me laugh. THough I will admit I couldn't follow it very well.
    Mahna Mahna - YES. That was just awesome.
    Kermit and Fozzie - really cute, touching song between them. :) Fozzie and Kerm haven't had many good "best friends" type moments recently.
    Johnny and Sal - Kinda didn't get the bit with the typewriter, but the lines between these two were so much fun. I LOVE these guys!! The thug part, and the hatbox part, were particularily funny for me.

    Parts I didn't like:
    Prison scene- WHAT is OJ simpson doing in a muppet movie?!? I mean, Winona Ryder as a reference isn't so bad, as I think her sentence was for shoplifting, but that was way too far. Also, the rest of the scene doesn't make a whole lot of sense at all.
    Robin cameo - Um, what is Robin doing in a dark alley, acting as the middle man between Johnny Fiama and some gangsters?! I didn't understand that at all! I mean, yeah sure, it's fun to throw muppets in to get some cameos, but it just doesn't make sense.
    Hoawrd the Pig - (and the exchange between Gonzo and Rizzo immediately afterwards) - I'm not gonna lie, I laughed out loud so much reading that. But I think it's a bit gratuitous, and shouldn't really be in there.
    Kermit - it seems like Kermit is the only muppet who can make things happen, but he's stuck in jail! Everyone else seems a bit useless, like their scenes are just excuses to make really funny exchanges (though that has been acheived), but nothing is advancing.

    In retrospect,i agree with you. At the time I wrote it, I had no idea abotu O.J. but Scoot said it t'would be funny.

    Robin..ok, I must admit, I thought it was hilarious that he was acting between J and S and gangsters... :p

    H. the Pig...hmm..agreed. but...I did snigger...

    And, hmm...you are right. Most of these scenes would have hit the cutting room florr...but, there's action coming soon!!!
