    TMS- Season 2 during the song "Pig Calypso"

    Piggy- Kermie is the reason why I have this twinkle in my eye. Kermie, Kermie shy and cute, How I love that handsome brute.

    Kermit- The frog has come to have his say, the pig will never get her way. Bib and napkin, knife and fork is the only way that I'll touch pork. LOL!!!

    I heard that song and it always cracks me up. The last part that Kermit did when ther last lines were, "bib and napkin, knife and fork is the only way that I'll touch pork." was hilarious even with her karate chop, the pigs oinked at her, and she probably said, Oink, oink yourself." That song really made my day.

    For some reason, this has been tickling me lately, even though I can't even identify which episode of TMS it comes from and why exactly it happened.

    There's a baby in Statler and Waldorf's box (one of their grandsons?) and Waldorf says: "I don't think this show is suitable for children!" To which the baby replies: "I don't think this show is suitable for ANYBODY!" And they all laugh.

    I usually don't like baby-talk as a comic device but man, that one cracks me up.

    The baby is from The Baby Band.

    One of the my favorite quotes is from the ep with Steve Martin

    (after an act of :sleep: :boo:)
    :attitude::Yes! Yes! That's so wonderful!
    :):I'm glad you enjoy that act, Sam.
    :attitude::It's good old-fashion entertainment. With that act, the Muppet Show finally turn the corner and become a normal, decent, moral program. What's next?
    ;):Marvin Suggs and his All Food Glee Club.
    :attitude::For one brief moment, there was light at the end of the tunel.

    Besides, I love Marvin Suggs. His voice never failes to make me laugh.

    I love any time Piggy uses the phrase "my frog." As in, "You can't hurt my frog!" or "My frog turned on me."

    And I just watched TMTM and remembered another favorite Piggy line. "Oh, dear lord. Not jogging." :)

    "I SPY because I CARE!"
    "Well, I care too!"
    "Well WHY don't you say so?!"
    "I just did!"
    "ALL RIGHT!"

    I just love that whole exchange, beginning to end. Poor Gregory Hines just wanted his skates back. :)

    That was just one of the most hilarious Muppet arguments I've ever heard! "NOT WITHOUT A FORKLIFT I CAN'T!!!!" Lolol, Kermit tests the limits when he gets angry. :)

    Because it's the 4th of July, I'm thinking of the Hal Linden episode of TMS (because Statler and Waldorf were running the show and had a production number that inadvertently mixed up the 4th of July and Christmas) and remembering one of my favourite Gonzo lines from that fifth-season episode...

    It comes just after Hal Linden and Robin sing this lovely, tender little song along the lines of "If I Ruled The World." Cue applause; then cue Gonzo (complete with his trademark "WHOMP!" entrance sound-effect): "If *I* ruled the world, CLOTHING would be EDIBLE!" Exit Gonzo, running offstage, cackling maniacally as only Gonzo can.

    I don't know if the Muppet writers slipped that in as a double-entendre, but it's funny as all get-out no matter how you slice it.
