Your Favorite Romantic Muppet Moment

    Hola, everybody!

    I know I'm kinda new to this forum, and I hope nobody minds if I start a thread:
    What are some of the most romantic scenes, in your opinion, that the Muppets have done?

    ...well, if you've read many of my posts so far, then you know that flip-dee-doo I've got quite a few (or at least a few) scenes that I like. Here's one:

    In MTI, when Captain Smollet and Benjamina Gunn [maybe I misspelled their names] reunite, Benjamina, who can hardly breathe due to excitement, squeals, "Smolly, can it be you?" And Captain Smollet says, in the calmest, Kermitiest, but most lovingly way, "Benjamina..."
    :flirt:
    I love that one!

    Well, if humans count, Maria and Luis' wedding. If not ... Kermit and Piggy's in MTM. Also, when Gobo is down with the Pebble Pox and Red is getting frustrated caring for him, I somehow find that to be a very romantic moment.

    "Love in a Laundromat." Gonzo and Camilla get all snuggly in Disney's Laundry Land.

    Maybe they could double date with Boober and... hmm?

    :excited::mad:: U R right, Maria + Luis wedding is so romantic--seeing as how we can hear their thoughts, I think there were lots of confused kids out there...

    WhiteRabbit-- I coudn't agree with you more! Janice and Floyd are just the SWEETEST! Everything they do is so
    "awe-inspiring. It make you want to go, 'Aww...' "" --:attitude: the eagle

    I've got to say it is pretty romantic at the end of MTM, as the show is going on and we see backstage, as Ronnie and Jenny are holding hands... Yo se (I think).. I feel that they were both were in love and didn't want to say it...I don't know, perhaps it was since they were only two humans in room (in wedding-like garb, ya must admit)...but ANYTIME anyone is holding hands...

    Boober and Mokey are really sweet together! I read on Muppet Wiki that it was Gobo who loved her...but, no offense to the writer of the article, it's just that I think I have some doubts...

    Also, what does it mean to "ship" something? Sorry I don't know.

    As I recall, it started with the Pokemon franchise, with Rocketshipping, since the hybrid of "Rocket" and "relationships" seem to go together rather well. A whole informal industry sprang up to "ship" just about everyone from then on out, LOL.

    Cool! Thanks to you two, I know a new word!:D
    Now, where to use it first...?

    Okay, here's one of my favorites:
    At the end of "Mokey's Funeral," Boober apologizes to Mokey and says he really liked her poetry. Later, the two take a ride in The White Bird, and Boober rows while Mokey recites the poem that was scorned before. Also, in the shadowy foreground, you can see Gobo with his arm around Red.

    This is one of the reasons, besides "Ragtime Queen," that I love the episode so much! :3 :flirt:

    My favorite romantic scene in the Muppet Show is where Miss Piggy and Kermit are bicycling together . . . I can't remember what movie or episode that was in . . . any ideas?

    For me nothing beats the entire wedding at the end of Muppets Take Manhattan. I even used to use the lyrics from that scene when I played with my Barbie dolls, lol.

    Got it!

    "...and there's the slightest possible chance that somebody might get killed. So if anyone wants out, they should say so now."

    ...
    "I'm out."
    "I got a dental appointment"

    "You see it's like this, kermit, i gotta go to work all day...":flirt::flirt:

    Maybe not quite romantic, but one of the moments in Letters to Santa I really loved was when Beaker was dancing with his girlfriend, and Bunsen approaches and asks, "May I cut in?" - and begins dancing with Beaker. Such a sweet moment.

    Thanks so much! :) And it must be:

    I love how Beaker has that little picture of Bunsen in his pad in Beaker's Ballad. Sweet touch.

    Gosh there are so many romantic moments I love; mostly because I am a romantic at heart myself

    Ones that people have posted:
    LOVED when Smollet and Benjamina meet and later on when they argue-very romantic even though Benjamina smacks Smollet into next week-LOVE how smollet puts his arm in front of her when Long John Silver comes around and how he tells her not to listen to Long John while hanging off the cliff

    MTM- definitely romantic. I will have an instrumental version of "He"ll make me happy" playing when I'm walking down the aisle at my own wedding, but first I have start dating again and find my guy, lol

    Great Muppet Caper bike scene- also very sweet; I also love the jail scene between Kermit and Piggy, hilarious and romantic at the same time, that's muppet magic right there folks!

    Other ones
    I love a few scenes in It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie when Kermit realizes he still hasn't seen what Piggy is like in teh Kermit-less world. The way he says her name and looks up, and later when he tries to take her out and how upset he gets when she starts crying after kicking him out- very touching moment.

    I also liked in LTS when Kermit said that it wasn't that he didn't want to spend the holidays with Piggy when wouldn't leave for their vacation-it's not too often that you hear that Kermit actually wants to spend time with Piggy; totally ticked that there wasn't any other romantic scenes between them in the movie.

    Red and Gobo
    I loved when Red kissed Gobo after getting her an umbrella from Doc's workshop during the PipeBangers episode. Also how they always challenge each other, definitely romantic tension between those two

    There is probably like a hundred more I could think of but I probably need to shower and go to bed so I can get up early for work tomorrow, lol. Oh well, more romance for another day...
