Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Dark? [1.02] edit

[after the chase of the slime monster]

Kermit: [sighs] [opens the fence board to check] I think we lost it. [closes it] [sees someone in a ghost costume which makes 11 of the kids] Hey, wait a minute. 1, 2, 3... that's funny. How many of us were there when we started the story?
Gonzo: 10. Why?
Kermit: 10? Why, uh, [points at someone in a ghost costume] I think we picked up a stray.
Gonzo: [removes the sheet and it turns out to be the slime monster]
Slime Monster: [growls]
Kids: Slime monster!
Gonzo: Let's get outta here! Help!

[in the haunted house]

Skeeter: [comes out of the sheet] Are you sure you saw the slime monster in that closet, Gonzo?
Gonzo: [comes out of the sheet] I don't know. Maybe it was my imagination.
Fozzie:: [comes out of the sheet] That's right. That's all it was. There aren't any slime monsters around here, uh, are there?
Slime monster: [comes out of the sheet, roars]
Fozzie: That's good. For a minute there, I was getting worried. [gives a shocked look] Slime monster!
Kids: [run away] Slime monster!
Animal: Monster! Aah!
Beaker: Slime monster!

Fozzie: [to the slime monster] When does a ghost need a license?
Slime Monster: [scratches it's head] [blubbers, "I don't know"]
Fozzie: During haunting season! [laughs nervously] Pretty funny, huh?
Slime Monster: [roars]

Raiders of the Lost Muppet [1.04] edit

Gonzo: Let's synchronize our watches.
Scooter: We don't have any watches.
Gonzo: That's okay, I don't know what synchronize means anyway.

Fozzie: This fantasy is rated PG. We're under age.

Skeeter: Rowlf can pick up the scent.
Rowlf: I didn't know anybody dropped it.

Close Encounters of the Frog Kind [1.09] edit

Kermit: They don't call me the fastest gum in the west for nothing, ya know.

Piggy: [reading to Robin] And so Piggy followed the little tadpole down its tadpole hole. (as herself) Oh, I'm falling!
Gonzo: Hold everything! You're not telling the story right, Piggy. The pictures show Alice chasing a white rabbit down a rabbit hole not a tadpole hole.
Piggy: I say it's a tadpole and he went down a tadpole hole and if you don't want to wind up stuffed in a weirdo hole you better keep quiet!

Piggy: (about Robin) He's adorable, just like his Uncle Kermie.
Kermit: Uncle Kermie? I never asked to be an uncle.
Skeeter: Kermit! Nobody asks to be an uncle. Your big sister had babies, that makes you an uncle, and the babies are your nieces and nephews.
Kermit: Oh, that's different.

Gonzo's Video Show [1.10] edit

Gonzo: [trying to adjust video camera] Hey, stay in focus. You're fuzzy.

Piggy: And I'm going to be the producer.
Kermit: Gee, what do producers do, Piggy?
Piggy: THEY FIRE DIRECTORS! (lunges at Gonzo)

[after the Muppets decide to make a Star Wars movie]
Fozzie: Oh, I know who I can play! [grabs two belts] I could play Whewbacca the Cookie!
Kermit: Um, that's Chewbacca the Wookie, Fozzie.
Fozzie: That's what I said, Cuchacca the Bookie.
Kermit: Oh Gee.

Fozzie's Last Laugh [2.03] edit

Piggy: Scooter, if you had ten hot dogs and Skeeter took three of them, what would you have?
Fozzie: He'd have a tummy ache. Get it? Ha ha. Wokka wokka wokka.

Piggy: If you have to tell jokes then tell them to the wall.
Fozzie: Okay, hey wall, why did the man put a sweater on his hot dog? Because it was a chili dog. Wokka wokka wokka.

Fozzie: What's the difference between an orange?
Nanny: Go ahead, Fozzie, finish the joke.
Fozzie: It *is* finished. *That's* the joke.

Fozzie has given up on comedy and now taken a job as a door-to-door salesman
Piggy: Who is it?
Fozzie: Door-to-door salesman.
Piggy: Is this anything funny?
Fozzie: Not at all, M'aam. These are unique encyclopedias.
Piggy: OK, come on in.
Fozzie: These encyclopedia are where you open it up, the subject comes to you! Look at "P", a parrot!
Parrot appears
Piggy: Neat! How about "O"?
Fozzie: Careful, because you may get the...water appears...ocean!
