Quotes:
From "The Muppet Show: Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge (#3.1)" (1978)
Rowlf: Okay, what happens now?
Fozzie: Oh, now comes the funny part.
[exits]
Rowlf: Well, leaving the stage is funnier than a lot of things the bear does.
Fozzie: [enters holding a fish] Okay, now ask me what I'm carrying the fish for.
Rowlf: Oh, Fozzie, what are you carrying the fish for?
Fozzie: Oh, just for the halibut.
Rowlf: You were better off leaving the stage.
