[Miss Piggy runs past Statler and Waldorf]
Statler: Is breakfast over?
Waldorf: No, why?
Statler: Because I think the bacon just ran out.
Pepe: [comes to the table] The raspberry flapovers will be out in a moment.
Robin: Hey, Uncle Kermit, what will you do now that you're on vacation?
Kermit: Well, Robin, once I get those housepainters started, l'm gonna kick back and relax.
Pepe: Kermit? When will you fix the oven, okay?
Kermit: [confused] What's wrong with the oven?
[An explosion is heard in the kitchen. Everyone on the table react to that sound.]
Pepe: That.
Swedish Chef: Yurski burski popovers kaboofed!
Kermit: Yeah... I'll put it on the top of my list...
Pepe: There is a menu correction, okay? We will now be serving bologna sandwiches. [everyone makes disappointed sounds. Swedish Chef says something to Pepe] But no bread.
[Everyone makes a disgusted noise and leaves the table]

[Kermit see Gonzo coming downstairs looking dejected]
Kermit: Hey, Gonzo, aren't you performing at that Bar Mitzvah today?
Gonzo: Nah. Electric Mayhem's covering for me.
Kermit: [concerned] But, Gonzo, you never miss the chance to get shot out of a cannon. Something wrong?
Gonzo: No. [beat] It's just that I'm sick and tired of being a one-of-a-kind freak, that's all.
Kermit: Gonzo, you are 'not a one-of-a-kind freak! You're a... [falters]
Gonzo: [annoyed] A whatever?
Kermit: Well... yeah!
Gonzo: You see?! See what I mean? I don't even know where I came from, or who I am!
Clifford: Yo, Kerm.
Kermit: Hmm?
Clifford: You weren't expecting some house painters, were you?
Kermit: Yeah, why?
Clifford: They're just driving away.
Kermit: What?!
Clifford: Animal bit one of them!
Kermit: Oh no! [The car engine of the house painters truck starts] Wait, guys! Don't let them go! [turns to Gonzo] You know what I think you are, Gonzo?
Gonzo: What?
Kermit: Distinct. [turns to run to the door to try and stop the painters] Wait, guys! He didn't mean it! He's just a musician!
Animal: Musician! Musician! Musician!
[Gonzo looks over at photos of the Muppets with their respective family members, before coming to photo of himself, alone]
Gonzo: [depressed] Distinct, huh? More like extinct...

Gonzo: [excited] Hey, guys! The Cosmic Fish have spoken to me: I'M FROM OUTER SPACE!
Rizzo: [not listening] Yeah, yeah, that's great - Pepe, are you in or out?
Pepe: I'm in.

Gonzo: Remember guys, I built this new Jacuzzi for my alien family, so no eating in the spa.
Rizzo: [guiltily] We gotta tell him the truth, Pepe.
Pepe: You tell him, and I will smack you. I will smack you like a bad, bad donkey, okay?

Johnny: Sal.
Sal: Yeah, Johnny?
Johnny: There are no cannolis!
Sal: Yeah, [holds up a slice of cake] but try this cake, this is a beauty!
Johnny: That is nice! Would you... [sees Gonzo, panics;] Gonzo, Gonzo!
[Sal and Johnny turn away as Gonzo approaches]
Gonzo: Go easy on the buffet, fellas, I just want... [stops, seeing the cake cut] Who cut the cake? Who cut the cake?! Who cut it?!
Johnny [feigning outrage] Oh, look at that!
Sal: [feigning outrage] Who cut this cake?!
Johnny: That's awful! They would've done...! [walks off with Sal]
Gonzo: The guests of honor aren't even here yet!
Fozzie: Hey, great party!
Gonzo: [sighs] Yeah... [looks up at the sky] I just wish they'd get here.
Sal: [in the background] Hey, you! Did you cut Gonzo's cake?!

Pepe: You said you going to tell him, okay?
Rizzo: Pepe, the Jacuzzi thing was your idea, and you have to tell him!
Pepe: [beat] Si, I will tell him, okay?

[Gonzo appears on TV]
Clifford: 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 it was confirmed by the Cosmic Fish that I am from outer space.
Rizzo: [to Kermit] So, you wanna go now, or wait for the commercial?
Kermit: ...Now. [gets off the couch]

Kermit: Listen, aren't you taking this alien thing a little too far?
Gonzo: Kermit, I realize that it may be hard for you to accept me as an alien... But I didn't choose to be one. And, well, I've always had alien tendencies - this just makes sense to me!

Miss Piggy: [to the agents taking Gonzo and Rizzo away] Hey, studmuffin, hold it!
Agent Barker: [to the other agent] I'll deal with her.
Miss Piggy: [sarcastically] Oh, you'll deal with me? Look, chumpo, I'm just trying to get a story.
Agent Barker: How about this story? It's about a big bad wolf and a little pig.
Miss Piggy: No, that's three pigs.
Agent Barker: [menacingly] Not in this version.
Miss Piggy: [frowns] Wait a minute, you're not part of an alien-protection agency! Who are you? Where are you taking Gonzo?!

[A stand off between Miss Piggy and Agent Barker]
Agent Barker: Black belt, third degree.
Miss Piggy: Platinum belt, with an unlimited line of credit.
Agent Barker: [grins] I like this party!

[Later, on the set of UFO Mania Live]
Agent Barker: [tied up] ...And that's all I know!
Miss Piggy: So, let me get this straight: This government agency, C.O.V.N.E.T., has abducted Gonzo, and taken him to its top-secret facility?
Agent Barker: Yes, Miss Piggy!
Miss Piggy: Well, thank you, darling. You've been most helpful. [excited] At last! [knocks over Barker] A real story! Intrigue, danger, new outfits, and it's mine, mine, mine! All mine! [runs off, then comes back, looking directly into the camera] Oh, please, you think Ted Koppel never gets excited?

Miss Piggy: Listen, everyone, listen. I've got great news! Gonzo has been kidnapped by the government, and it could be a life-threatening situation!
[Everyone gasps in horror]
Kermit: How can that be "great news"?!
Miss Piggy: Because... I've got the story! I've got the story! [gasps] I need to change! [runs up the stairs] Something that says, "Journalistic integrity"! Oh, I've gotta pee!
Kermit: Oh, brother!
Fozzie: What are we gonna do?
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 Jell-O, okay? [holds it up and wiggles it]
Kermit: ...Okay, well, that settles that. In circumstances like this, there's only one place to turn...

[Rizzo is in a rat maze in a laboratory with other rats]
Buba: [to Rizzo] Hey, buddy. Watch out for those red coicles.
Rizzo: What red circles? I don't see any... [is all of a sudden electrocuted and is launched into the air]
Buba: Nobody ever listens...

Rizzo: All right, that does it - We're busting out of this joint, boys!
Bubba: Even if we got over the wall, we couldn't turn the doorknob.
Rizzo: Who needs doorknobs? [lifts up his "Mice Girls" poster to reveal a hole, while the other rats gape in shock]

Kermit: We gotta get through that door.
Fozzie: Should we just ask permission from those nice men with the rifles?
Kermit: [exasperated] Fozzie, those are the bad guys!

[Everyone falls into a pile after becoming invisible]
Pepe: Come on, Kermit. I will help you up, okay. [beat] Why, Kermit, you're so soft and plump...
Miss Piggy: [threateningly] You got one second to get your hands off me, shrimp.
Pepe: [mortified] Sorry, Piggy!

Dr. Van Neuter: Let's see here... Have you ever experienced any achiness in your tentacles?
Gonzo: I don't have tentacles!
Dr. Van Neuter: Good, no achy tentacles, good... Head ever come off?
Gonzo: No, I don't think so.
Dr. Van Neuter: Good, good, good. Any gingivitis?
Gonzo: No.
Dr. Van Neuter: Great. What about problems with that beaky thing you've got there? Itching, swelling, flaking?
Gonzo: Well, some flaking a couple years ago-
Dr. Van Neuter: [throws away clipboard] Oh, who cares? It's showtime!

[The Muppets try to escape using the "Door in a Jar", but it only creates a door too small for them to get through]
Kermit: Gee, that's disappointing...
Miss Piggy: [sarcastic] Perfect. Somebody knock and see if Barbie's home.
Pepe: Works for me. Adios! [uses the door]
Rizzo: What?! [runs after him, but is unable to open the door] Oh, I cannot believe that little shrimp left us behind!
[Pepe opens up a larger door next to them]
Pepe: I am not a shrimp - I am a king prawn!

Singer: [to himself] Where is he?
Agent Rentro: I didn't overhear anything...
Singer: [looks up] Did I ask you if you overheard anything?
Agent Rentro: [guilty] No, sir.
Singer: Because if you did overhear anything, l'm sure you would tell me.
Agent Rentro: Yes, sir.
Singer: Or do I have to remind you of Mr. Jumbo's Circus Town and Wild Animal Revue? [Rentro looks afraid] [angrily] Where's he going?! [Rentro stays silent] Oh, look; Sunday's half price at the petting zoo...!
Agent Rentro: Okay, okay! They're going to Cape Doom!
Singer: Good, good. Get me the Subatomic Neutro-Destabilizer. [Rentro looks at him blankly] The Subatomic Neutro... [gives up] Oh, the really big gun.
Agent Rentro: The really big gun! Yes, sir! The really big gun... [retrieves it from a secret compartment, and hands it to Singer] Really big gun.
Singer: [holds out hand] Clip.
Agent Rentro: [hands it to him] Clip!
[Singer loads the gun]
Singer: Let's head for my car.
Agent Rentro: [stops] Oh. Problem there, sir. [Singer stops] Remember those parking tickets you asked me to take care of for you? And I said that-
Singer: Oh, just say it.
Agent Rentro ...Car's impounded. [Singer glares at him] Oh, we can take my company car!
Singer: ...Fine.
Agent Rentro: Great!

[After Singer's gun fails to fire at Gonzo and his family]
Kermit: [relieved] That was close!
Agent Rentro: Not as close as you think, my friend. [holds up gun clip] [imitating gun:] "Please load weapon"!

Gonzo: What a great day! That was probably the best day of my whole life! [pause] But, there's one' thing I don't understand.
Kermit: What's that, Gonzo?
Gonzo: Why did they ask me to build a Jacuzzi?
[Pepe chuckles]
