Quotes:
The Newsman:Copenhagen, Denmark. Dr. Felix Ogelbaum says that after thirty years' concentrated research, he has discovered the cure for the common cold. Our Muppet cameras are on the scene, and we'll speak with Dr. Ogelbaum about this great medical breakthrough.

The Newsman:Dr. Ogelbaum?
Dr. Felix Ogelbaum:Yeah? Yeah, I am Felix Ogelbaum in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The Newsman:Yes, Dr. Ogelbaum, can you tell us about this cure?
Dr. Felix Ogelbaum:Yeah, of course. It was right under our noses. Do you believe that? I am so excited. First, you stay away from sick people. That's very important.

The Newsman:And this will cure the common cold?
Dr. Felix Ogelbaum:Positively.
[suddenly sneezes]
Dr. Felix Ogelbaum:And then again, maybe not...
