Quotes:
From "The Muppet Show: The Stars of Star Wars (#4.17)" (1980)
The Newsman: Here's a bulletin from the Muppet Newsroom. The spaceship Swine Trek is about to make a soft landing on a distant planet. In other planetary news, Venus is about to make a hard landing on the Muppet Newsroom. That doesn't make sense.
[suddenly, the Venus de Milo falls down on top of the Newsman's desk]
