    Not all deleted scenes were released. Maybe someday.

    I also wanted to see why Kermie and Miss Piggy broke up.

    You aren't the only one! I read about it in the novel, and I wanted to see it acted out, but they hardly showed it!

    Well, the setting takes place after TMTM in the house Piggy built, and Miss Piggy has that pic of her and Kermit in the wedding scene from the movie. Miss Piggy runs up to Kermit, and says, "Oh Kermie, I'm so happy! Let's share our happiness with the world's top 10 news publications!" Piggy swings the door open, peeps ask questions, and Kermit slams the door. "Piggy, what are you talking about?" Miss Piggy shows Kermit the picture. "Look, our first picture as a married couple!" Kermit, of course, gets all touchy. "Piggy for the last time, we are not-" And then he thought about it. The person who played the minister was a real minister, so they were really married! "Piggy, tell me you didn't!" Piggy ignored him. "Piggy, that's it! I'm tired of you pulling dumb stunts like this all the time, you're supposed to ask someone before you marry them! You're fired Piggy! fired! FIRED!" Then Piggy gets all sensitive. "But, you can't fire me, I'm your wife!" Then this is the part where I cried. "Piggy, you will never ever EVER be my wife!" Miss Piggy fell silent, tore the picture in two, and ran out of the house.

    *Bows* I'll be in my trailer.

    Well this was a daily occurrence on The Muppet Show. Lol! I think I saw part of that scene in the blooper reel. Hey they get back together though! Kissy and all! :)

    Yes, and the way Piggy acted in the movie, I was worried that they'd never be "together again"!

    so, the movie was kind of confirming that they really were married then.

    i wonder why they decided to redo it this way. maybe they didn't want there to be such a clear cut confirmation of their marriage in the final cut

    I was shocked at Kermit's dialogue myself. Lol! Especially saying he missed and needed her. And in his own way said he loved her. He was so shy but it was cute!
  11. Pinkflower7783

    Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    I dont either because I thought that wedding was just for MTM.
  12. zoebell

    zoebell Well-Known Member

    yeah, and it kinda makes things more confusing actually...because after MTM, kermit and piggy were always going back and forth in "real life" on their talk show appearances and stuff about whether they were married or not. but then if they have them play their "real selves" in this movie and simultaneously confirm that the marriage within the movie WAS real...that is really, really meta

    i think that's going too far with the meta stuff
  13. Pinkflower7783

    Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    To me I think all that stuff was just for the movies. In real life, it's obvious their not married but as Kermit says they are indeed together. Like I said I'll take it! LOL!

    miss kermie Well-Known Member

    I know, I'm getting confused as to which one's the real life, and which one's just fantasy!
  15. Pinkflower7783

    Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    You know at first I thought the wedding in MTM was real but it's obvious at least to me that it was only for that movie and played no part in real life. Like I said before in a few posts...Kermit and Piggy are like Mickey and Minnie Mouse to me they aren't married to the public but techincially by the studios standards they're infact married.

    The book version of the movie has a photo of Gonzo talking to Kermit in the wedding scene and the text says he reveals that the guy really was a minister and they're really married. They might have planned that originally but then opted to make the ending more ambiguous instead.
  17. Pinkflower7783

    Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    Yes he was a real minister but again it was only for the movie...I don't feel it had anything to do with their real lives.

    This is so confusing!!! LOL I wish they'd make up their minds!
  19. Pinkflower7783

    Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    IMO its clear in real life they aren't married.
  20. zoebell

    zoebell Well-Known Member

    i agree with the ending they chose for MTM, because it really does make for a lovely, happily-ever-after ending shot, at least for the film.

    and whether the wedding was "real" or not, the scene and the ending itself basically cemented kermit and piggy together forever in the eyes of audiences, and that had to have been the intent, don't you think? i mean, from that point on they kind of are the equivalent of mickey/minnie or something
