It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie (2002) (TV)
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog: Muppet movies are always the best.
Kermit: You mean that?
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog: FOR ME TO POOP ON!

[In a parody of 'Moulin Rouge.']
Robin: I'm the Green Fairy.
Kermit: But what are you doing in my drink?
Fozzie: The backstroke.

Daniel: I know that Bitterman changed the contract.
Kermit: Wha- how do you know THAT? Oh, wait a second, you don't run one of those Muppet Internet fan sites, do ya?

Kermit: [whispers] Psst, come close.
[Daniel leans foreward and Kermit shouts]
Kermit: I wish I had never been born!

Kermit: I wish I've never been born!

Kermit: We're going to get you that money.
Rachel Bitterman: Yeah, when pigs fly.
[Miss Piggy suddeny comes flying by, dangling from the "five golden rings"]
Rachel Bitterman: For the record, I consider that flying pig to be a coincidence and not a sign from God!

Kermit: [watching Rizzo the Rat on "Fear Factor"] How can NBC live with themselves?

The Great Gonzo: Hmmm. Let's see. Shiny nose, laughing and calling names... I got it! Meet the new star of our show: Frosty the Snow-Rat!
Kermit: Gee Gonzo, I thought you would have gone with Rizzo the Red-Nosed Rat-Deer.
The Great Gonzo: Well, sure, if you want to go for the obvious.

Kermit: Uh, merry Christmas. I can see you really like cats.
Miss Piggy: Doesn't everyone?

Kermit: [as Miss Piggy is advertising over the phone] Piggy, what are you doing? You're not Jamaican.
Miss Piggy: Yeah, well I'm not psychic either.

Kermit: The park! It's back! I'm back! And I've got spit in my eye, but I don't care, because I'm back, thanks to you, Daniel!

Kermit: W-who are you? You look like some sort of ice cream man from 'Hello, Dolly!'

Daniel: I know. We'll alert the press. We'll start a media frenzy...
Kermit: It's no use. Bitterman owns the papers, she owns the television stations, and three-quarters of the internet.
Daniel: How can one person own so much?
Kermit: Corporate synergy. It's out of control.
[Kermit crosses his legs, exposing an NBC logo under his flipper]

Kermit: Well, he's acting a little strange, but gee, it's good to know Fozzie turned out basically okay.
Daniel: Yeah, if being a pickpocket is okay.
Kermit: What?
[looks down and realizes]
Kermit: He took my wallet! Unbelievable!
Daniel: And you don't even have pockets. Even more unbelievable.

The Great Gonzo: This is Luc Fromage. He works with Cirque Du Soilet.
Luc Fromage: Behold, I give you my theatrical masterpiece!
Kermit: "Cirque Du So Lame?" Luc, I don't think it would be nice to have the word "lame" in our show.
Luc Fromage: It is not "lame"! It's "lah-mehy"!

Kermit: Ms. Bitterman, you can take the Muppet Theatre, but you'll never take the theatre in our hearts!
Rachel Bitterman: Well, that's good, because I don't want the theatre in your hearts; I want the theatre that exists in reality!

Kermit: [reading a sign in the park] "Thank you, Kermit, for all you have done for the lovers, the dreamers and you."
[groans]
Kermit: Dreams. Bitterman's right. I ruined everyone's lives with my ridiculous dreams.

Kermit: Can we make enough money?
Dr. Honeydew: Yes... I mean, no... I mean, yes...
[Opens window where Beeker's hand is caught]
Dr. Honeydew: Beaker, do you have my wax pencil? Oh, never mind, here it is.
[Closes window on Beeker's hand again]
Dr. Honeydew: Yes, if we fill 1,900 seats...
Kermit: But that's impossible!
Dr. Honeydew: Or not pay anyone 'til New Year's.
Kermit: Oh, that's not so bad.
Dr. Honeydew: ...of next year.

Pepe: That.

Kermit: You know what you are, Gonzo?
Gonzo: What?
Kermit: Distinct.

Gonzo: Well, it's just that I'm sick and tired of being a one-of-a-kind freak, that's all.

Miss Piggy: Because, I've got a story, I've got a story! Oh! I need to change! Something that says journalistic integrity.

Kermit: [on spy gadgets] Ahah. The old rubber ducky with invisibility-spray trick. Check.

Kermit: Okay, guys. It's up to us. We have to save Gonzo from a whole army of government agents.
Fozzie: Well, I have a joke book.
Animal: Drumsticks, drumsticks!
Pepe: I have some loose jello, okay.
Kermit: Okay. Well that settles that.

[Gonzo appears on live TV]
Clifford: Hey, you better get down there, Kerm.
Kermit: Relax. No one is going anywhere, okay?
Gonzo: [on TV] You see, I was contacted through my breakfast cereal, and then it was confirmed to me by the Cosmic Fish that I am definitely from outer space.
Rizzo: So you want to go now, or wait for the commercial?
Kermit: Now.

Kermit: What is he doing up there?
Rizzo: His breakfast cereal told him to sit up there.

Miss Piggy: I love it when you take charge.
Fozzie Bear: Hey! We left Bunsen and Beaker back at the gas station.
Kermit: Okay... Well, uh, from THIS point on , no matter what happens, we never forget one of our own.

Kermit: Okay, guys. We've got to get through those doors.
Fozzie Bear: Should we just ask permission from those nice men with the rifles?

Gonzo: Now we can go meet my alien brothers at Cape Doom.
Kermit: Uh, what makes you think that aliens are landing there, Gonzo?
Gonzo: Oh, a sandwich told me.

Kermit: When we pull together, we can do anything.

Kermit: So... you'll write?
Gonzo: Oh, yeah, sure I'll write. There's probably a mailbox every couple of light years.

Kermit: Oh, hey Gonzo! I thought you were performing at a bar mitzvah?
Gonzo: No, I got the Electric Mayhem to cover for me.
Dr.Teeth: Shalom!

Gonzo: What a great day.
Kermit: Mm-hmm.
Gonzo: That was probably the best day of my whole life. There's just one thing I still don't understand.
Kermit: What's that, Gonzo?
Gonzo: Why did they ask me to build a jacuzzi?
Rizzo, Pepe: [snickering]

Kermit: [after the 'Door in a Jar' forms but the door is too small] Gee, that's disappointing.
Miss Piggy: Perfect. Somebody knock and see if Barbie's home.

Kermit the Frog: Me? In love with a pig? Wait 'til I tell the guys in marketing.

Policeman: [dismissing his suspicion after a moment] Nahhhhh!

Fozzie Bear: Hey, Kermit. Can our friends watch the show from backstage?
Kermit the Frog: What? No! No, they cannot watch the show from backstage. That's it! That's what's been missing from the show! That's what we need! More frogs and dogs and bears and chickens and... and whatever! You're not gonna watch the show, you're gonna be in the show! Come on, everyone!

Kermit the Frog: Why don't you try something like: Ocean Breeze Soap will get you clean.
Jill the Frog: You mean just say what the product does?
Gil the Frog: No one's ever tried that before.

Kermit the Frog: What's going on here?
Scooter: Well... uh... we just got job offers. Uh... right guys?
[everyone lies with ad libs, "yeah", "sure", "job offers"]
Kermit the Frog: That's great. But why do you all look so sad?
Scooter: Well, it's just... they're kind of... out of town job offers. Right guys?
[more ad libs with "yes", "out of town", etc]
Gonzo: What job did I get?
Scooter: Gonzo! Shut up!

Kermit the Frog: [whispering] Piggy, I thought Gonzo was gonna play the minister.
Miss Piggy: [laughs]
The Minister: [singing] Do you, Piggy, take this frog to be your lawful wedded husband? Do you?
Miss Piggy: [singing] I do.
The Minister: [singing] Do you, Froggie, take this pig to be your lawful wedded wife until you die?
Kermit the Frog: [hesitantly singing] Well... I...
The Minister: [singing] Do you?

Miss Piggy: None of your beeswax!
Kermit the Frog: Hey have you been spying on me?
Roller Skater: I'll unlace them, while you fight. It's no trouble.
Kermit the Frog: Piggy! Have you been spying on me?
Miss Piggy: Maybe spying on vous and that certain young girl of the opposite gender.

Roller Skater: What show?
Miss Piggy: Well if she is just a friend then what about the... the huggies?
Kermit the Frog: What?
Roller Skater: [shocked] The Huggies! You gave Jenny the huggies?
Miss Piggy: You know maybe, maybe Kermit, maybe it would have been better if we had never have met. Then, then you and Jenny would not be tormented by my presence.
[sobbing]

Roller Skater: See what the huggies'll getcha?

Jack Black: [Inside car trunk] Get me out of here!

Kermit the Frog: [singing] Was there more I could have said?/Now they're only pictures in my head/That's why my green is feeling gray/Even frogs have rainy days

Kermit the Frog: Listen everybody, we've got nothing to be ashamed of. And you know why? Well because, thanks to Walter here we tried. And if we failed, we failed together and to me that's not failing at all. And I don't care what anybody says, I don't care if no one believes in us because... I believe. I believe in you. And you. And you. You know what's important isn't this building or name, it's each other. So I say fine, let's just start from the bottom and work our way back up to the top. Let's all walk out through these doors with our heads held up high, as a family because that's what we are.

Walter: But Kermit, you have to try! The Muppets are AMAZING! You give people the greatest gift that can ever be given!
Kermit the Frog: Children?
Walter: No, the OTHER gift.
Kermit the Frog: Ice cream?
Walter: No, no, after that...
Kermit the Frog: Laughter?

Kermit: Well, all families start to come together.
Robin: We always get together at Christmas.
Kermit: Yeah, life would just pass in a blur if it weren't for times like this.

Kermit the Frog: Oh, Fozzie, that's terrible!
Fozzie Bear: [tasting it] Yeah, you're right... needs more sugar.

Kermit the Frog: And our demonstration will also include a little song from Miss Piggy...
Miss Piggy: [irritably clearing throat] Little?
Kermit the Frog: Little? Did I say little? I meant to say it's a huge, showstopping, major song from Miss Piggy?
Miss Piggy: [sweetly] That's more like it.

Kermit the Frog: We invited some of the most distinct scientists to come and work here. Unfortunately, none of them showed up.

Kermit the Frog: [talking about the show] It's going to be a swell demonstration, and at no time will we be stooping to any cheap 3D tricks.
[Fozzie Bear enters]
Fozzie Bear: Did you say "cheap 3D tricks"?
Kermit the Frog: Uh...
[Fozzie blows a party streamer horn in the audience's direction]

Rat #2: Our assets are frozen!
Ebenezer Scrooge: How would the bookkeeping staff like to be suddenly... UNEMPLOYED?
Rats: [singing] HEAT WAVE. This is my island in the sun...

Ebenezer Scrooge: Bob Cratchit, I've had my fill of this.
Miss Piggy: And I have had my fill of you, Mr. Scrooge.
Ebenezer Scrooge: And therefore, Bob Cratchit...
Miss Piggy: And therefore, you can leave this house at once.
Ebenezer Scrooge: And therefore, I'm about to raise your salary!
Miss Piggy: Ooh, and I am about to raise you right off the pavement...! Pardon?
Kermit the Frog: Pardon?

Kermit the Frog: It's all right, children. Life is made up of meetings and partings. That is the way of it. I am sure that we shall never forget Tiny Tim, or this first parting that there was among us.

Ebenezer Scrooge: I'll see you tomorrow morning at 8.
Rats: [whispering] Ask him, ask him.
Kermit the Frog: Tomorrow's Christmas, sir.
Ebenezer Scrooge: 8:30, then.
Kermit the Frog: Uh, if you please Mr. Scrooge, half an hour off hardly seems customary for Christmas Day.
Rats: No, no.
Ebenezer Scrooge: How much time off *is* customary?
Kermit the Frog: Why, uh... The whole day.
Rats: Yeah, yeah!
Ebenezer Scrooge: The *entire* day?
Rats: No, no. That's the frog's idea...

Kermit the Frog: If you please sir, why open the office tomorrow? Other businesses will be closed; there'll be no one to do business with. It'll waste a lot of expensive coal for the fire!
Rats: Yeah!
Ebenezer Scrooge: It's a poor excuse for picking a man's pocket every December the 25th. But as I seem to be the only man who knows that... take the day off.

Ebenezer Scrooge: Let us deal with the eviction notices for tomorrow, Mr. Cratchit.
Kermit the Frog: Uh, tomorrow's Christmas, sir.
Ebenezer Scrooge: Very well. You may gift wrap them.

Crow: No, I see one right here!

Kermit the Frog as "Scarecrow": [to Wizard of Oz] Hello there, Mr. Oz. By any chance are you related to Frank Oz?

Quentin Tarantino: And then... just as Dorothy and the wicked witch charge at each other, BAM, blowout fight scene! The gals whip out these huge samurai swords, and they just TEAR IT UP! I'm talking kung-fu! I'm talking walking on walls! I'm talking explosions everywhere!
[imitating explosions]
Quentin Tarantino: Psshh. Psshh. Psshh! I'm talking Oz in flames! Burn baby burn! You digging it?
Kermit the Frog: Sounds, um, a bit violent for a family film.
Quentin Tarantino: Okay fine. We pull back on the violence. Pull back on the explosions. Pull back on the burn baby burn. Alright... ya' know. Less kung-fu. But instead, are you ready? Ya ready?
Kermit the Frog: Yeah, yeah!
Quentin Tarantino: Morphing.
Kermit the Frog: Morphing?
Quentin Tarantino: Morphing. Crazy morphing! We're talking Piggy turning into Gonzo, mutating into Scooter. Scooter turning in to a big, busty vampire vixen who explodes in a sea of crimson blood! Hahahahaha. All done in the classic Japanese anime style. You know, for the kids.
Kermit the Frog: Um, yeah. Sounds... expensive.
Quentin Tarantino: Think, think, think, think, think. I can work with this. Think, think, think
[snaps fingers]
Quentin Tarantino: I got it!
[climbing on the table]
Quentin Tarantino: Dorothy... big bad Dorothy goes to kick the witch, are ya ready for this... are ya ready?
Kermit the Frog: Yeah.
Quentin Tarantino: ...In the face!
Kermit the Frog: Hmmm... oh. Now that we can afford
Quentin Tarantino: [hits the table with joy] YES!

Dorothy: [referring to the Tin Thing] You think he's stuck?
Scarecrow: Do you think he needs our help?
Toto: You think he can check my e-mails?

Scarecrow: You know, I'd give my stuffed flipper for only half of your brain.
Tin Thing: Take it from me, brains don't make you happy.

Dorothy: We're on our way to see the Wizard of Oz, and he's gonna make me a famous singer.
Scarecrow: Yeah, and he's gonna give me a brain.
Toto: Si, and he'll probably going to give me lots of moneys, okay.


The Muppets at Walt Disney World (1990) (TV)
Kermit: We're both members of FASA - Fictional Animal Stars of America.

Young Girl: My mother always told me you should never give up on a dream.
Kermit: Didn't your mother tell you not to talk to strange frogs?
Young Girl: There's a song she taught me that has a message for you.
Kermit: Now you're gonna sing me a song?

Kermit: Miss Piggy, how are we going to explain this to Big Bird?

Mickey Mouse: Well, you know what we always say: "When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true."
Kermit: Actually, what we say is: "Someday, you'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers, and you."
Floyd: Uh-oh. They're starting to argue philosophy.

Miss Piggy: Kermit, this is a stinkin' bog!

Hey Cinderella! (1969) (TV)
Cinderella: Wow! That carriage ride was fast! How did you get that thing to run like that?
Kermit the Frog: Oh, it's pretty simple. All you have to do is dangle a radish in front of him.
[turns to the monster]
Kermit the Frog: Radish! Radish!

Prince Arthur Charming: Hey, that's the slipper! Hey, where did you find it?
Kermit the Frog: Well if that dog wants to stay healthy, he'd better stop burying slippers in Splurge's raddish patch. The big fellow wasn't happy.

Cinderella: Oh Arthur, I still can't believe it!
Prince Arthur Charming: Now what can't you believe?
Cinderella: That all our troubles are over and we're going to live happily ever after.
Kermit the Frog: [to the audience] Ah, I could have solved this whole thing months ago, but who listens to a frog?

Kermit the Frog: What you want is a girl who doesn't know you. And that's impossible, so why don't you just give up and go back to your gardening?
Prince Arthur Charming: What's the point? I'm a terrible gardener. The only things that grow in this mud are the gerraniums, and they were planted by the people we rented this castle from.
Kermit the Frog: Aw, don't sell yourself short. Those tangerines over there don't look so bad. A little small maybe, but...
Prince Arthur Charming: Those are pumpkins.
Kermit the Frog: Uh huh. You know something?
Prince Arthur Charming: What?
Kermit the Frog: It's lucky you're a prince because you'd never make it as a gardener.

Miss Piggy: Oh, Mayor Bloomberg! Take me to the front of this line.
Michael Bloomberg: Sorry, Miss Piggy, but that would be rude, and one thing New York is known for is niceness.

Kermit the Frog: Oh, thank you, Piggy.
