  • [Kermit is sitting on a bench - a man and his daughter walk by] 

    Girl : Look, Dad. There's a bear.

    Father : No, Christine, that's a frog. Bears wear hats.

  • Pops : Hey, how're you guys fixin' to pay?

    Kermit : What are our choices?

    Pops : A: Credit card; B: Cash; C: Sneak out in the middle of the night.

    Fozzie : We'll take C.

    Pops : Very popular choice.

  • Pops : [banging on bathroom door]  Hey! What's goin' on in there? Lotta folks out here need to use the restroom!

    Kermit : Well, we're developing these pictures, we'll be out as soon as we finish. We're trying to catch a jewel thief.

    Fozzie : A jewel thief!

    Pops : Well, catch him in another room, people are dancing up and down on one leg out here!

  • Kermit : How are we supposed to cut through the bars if nobody brought stuff to cut with?

    Floyd : I brought some hot mustard, maybe that will eat through the bars.

  • [going over the checklist] 

    Fozzie : Peanut butter?

    Floyd : Animal ate it.

    Animal : Sorry!

  • Fozzie : [sighs]  It was nice of the Chronicle to pay for our flight home.

    Pops : Yeah, but a man should be treated better than his luggage.

    Scooter : Yeah, well, my luggage was sucked out the door. Luckily my radio is frozen to my wrist.

  • [Pops is driving the bus with Electric Mayhem in back] 

    Pops : [to Kermit and friends who want to get on the bus]  You'll have to sit in the front seat, the back's been quarantined.

  • Kermit : Excuse me.

    Pops : [awakes from his nap abruptly]  What?

    Kermit : We'd like a room.

    Pops : Really?

    Kermit : Yeah, we'd like to check in.

    Pops : Somebody's checking in!

    [dings his service bell] 

    Happiness Hotel Guests : [emerging from their rooms]  SOMEBODY'S CHECKING IN?

  • Pops : [after Beauregard crashes his cab into the Happiness Hotel]  You can never find a cab when you need one.

  • Kermit : Now, we're about to embark on a potentially dangerous mission. There could be physical violence, there could be gunplay, and there is the slightest chance that somebody might even get killed. So if anybody wants out, now is the time to say it.

    Floyd : I'm out.

    Rowlf : Me too.

    Dr. Bunsen Honeydew : Ditto.

    Beaker : Meep meep.

    Zoot : Hey, don't we have a gig around here, or something, or somewhere?

    Pops : Sorry, I got a dental appointment.

    Janice : It's like this, Kermit, I have to go to work all day...

    [everyone starts talking at once] 

    Fozzie : [shouting]  Hold it!

    [everyone stops talking] 

    Fozzie : Shame on you! I thought we were in this thing together. I'm just as scared as you are, but this has to be done! We don't want the bad guys to win. We gotta do this f-f-for justice! For freedom! For honesty!

  • Fozzie : [shouting]  Hold it!

    Fozzie : [the room grows quiet]  Sha-ame on you! I thought we were in this thing together. I'm just as scared as you are, but this has to be done! We don't want the bad guys to win. We gotta do this,. for- for- for justice! For freedom! For honesty!

    Scooter : Boy, do I feel ashamed.

    Pops : Me, too. I feel like two cents.

    Rowlf : I'm back in.

    Dr. Bunsen Honeydew : You can count on me!

    Floyd : [with a mix of sarcasm and sincerity]  Oh, hey, I was only joking. Yeah, it'll be a lot of fun to go out there and risk our lives.

    Dr. Teeth : [everybody says "Yeah"]  All for one, and one for all.

    Janice : Yeah!

    Sam the Eagle : At times like this, I am proud to be an American.

    [Sam harrumphs as he leaves the doorway]
