    I like the "Muppets All Purpose Tenderizer" bit that Bunsen does. Very funny!

    "Alright, who's the smarty-pants who tenderized the table?! I MEAN IT!!!!"

    That gets me every time!

    Kermit: "Kermit de Frog here!" (emphases on "de")
    Piggy: "Hai-ya!", when she karate-chops someone
    Robin: "Nobody ever notices me"

    Watched the Spike Milligan TMS episode last night - I had completely forgotten how funny it is in the sketch where Lew Zealand, offstage, asks Spike, "Can we have our chicken back?" Which, of course, launches a few minutes of nuttiness with Lew and Spike onstage together.

    (And while he technically isn't a Muppet, I like the way Spike says "Lewwwwww Zealand" in the same sketch.)

    The Muppet Show season 4 with Dyan Cannon. When everyone refers to to Kermit as Foo Foo's ( Piggy's dog) da da. LOL! Gonzo: Well Kermit can't you do something? After all your the dogs da da. Kermit- I AM NOT THE DOGS DA DAAAAAA!!! LOL!

    That's one of my favourites, too. I also smile at the thought of an annoyed Kermit mocking Piggy's "oo-dee-boo-boo-boo" baby-talk to Foo Foo during the first onstage sequence after the opening theme.

    Piggy got a great line at the end, too, when Janice came onstage looking for Floyd (who mistreated Foo Foo earlier in the episode). Sweetly: "Oh, don't worry about Floyd..." Menacingly, to the camera: "He can breathe through the keyhole!"

    Sam has some fantastic one liners! Like when he's censering the show;

    "Disgusting! Get away!"
    "I send it to a very important person!"
    "None of your business."
    "A rat! And what is a rat doing in a legitimet theatre?"
    "You let a rat touch your food!?"
    "RAT! I am talking to you! I am making a citizens rat arrest! OUT!"

    The Muppet Show Season 5 when Piggy plants yet another story in the paper about Kermit and her being secretly married in Vegas.

    Kermit- THAT'S A BALD FACE LIE PIGGY! I WILL NOT STAND AROUND WHILE YOU DO DUMB THINGS LIKE THAT PIGGY! YOU HAVE DONE THAT TO ME TOO MANY TIMES PIGGY! I WILL NOT STAND FOR IT, I WILL NOT STAND FOR IT!

    Piggy- Well what are you going to do?

    Kermit- I'LL TELL YOU WHAT I'M GOING TO DO PIGGY, I'M GOING TO FIRE YOU PIGGY, PIGGY, YOU'RE FIRED PIGGY, YOU'RE FIRED FIRED!!!

    I can only imagine the fun Jim and Frank had during that scene. LOL!

    Sam during "Sam's Song" cracks me up!

    "Ugh, this show is disgusting! Get away! Get away! I am going to write to someone important and put a stop to it!"
    "That is not my song! I do not have a song!"
    "Don't whistle!"
    "There is a thing whistling here!"
    "There is a lump playing harmonica!"

    The Muppet Show Season 3 -Lynn Redgrave "Kermit stars as Robin Hood."

    Newsman as the "Town Crier" :news: - "Five o'clock and all's well, Five o'clock and all's well! Except that Maid Marian has been kidnapped, the sheriff's up to no good, the dog is stealing the cheese, Kermit's mad at Piggy and it's really only 4:30." LOL! And then a pot falls on his head. XD

    Its not a Muppet, but it is said.

    "Help. Help. This is a serious cry for help."

    This line used to really annoy me as a kid, because he didn't sound at all worried about being lost in the swamp, but watching it as a grown up the completely dead-pan delivery of that cry for help is really fun. Its one of those lines that I sometimes get stuck in my head during normal everyday life which then makes me fancy watching the whole movie again just to hear it said properly.

    I am so glad to know that I am not certifiably -crazy- for getting lines stuck in my head. You always hear about music getting in people's heads but, like you, I get lines stuck in my head.
    For example, I always get Convincing John's, "Moooookeeeey" stuck in my head from the Poobah episode of Fraggle Rock. Same with Rock Hockey Hannah's "Ahahahaha Thaaaat is a quitter's reeeeaaasoonnn...." Her strange sing-song manner is just an earworm!

    I guess it goes to show you audio is audio.

    The Muppet Show Season 5- Loretta Swit

    Loretta- Aw, so come on now, let's sing a nice, warm, lovely together song
    Kermit- I hate sappy songs like that
    Loretta-Alright then, why don't you two just kiss and make up?
    Kermit- Well let's sing the sappy song. (For someone who sings Rainbow Connection he's got a lotta nerve! LOL!)
    Piggy-You don't make it easy, Frog! :):mad: LOL!!!

    Anything Red says to Gobo is probably hilarious. What I did finally get her puns to the way she says the "chandelier". Anything Boober says can be funny too. But the song, "I'm a Little Stewpot from the similar song of the remmembering song from Youtube even though I will see the whole "Boober Gorg episode today I guess and Red's "uh-oh!" are hilarious. Hahahahahaha!
