Kermit: I'm pretty sure that includes monsters. -gives list back to him-
Beautiful Day Monster: Well, the list doesn't say so, bub!
Kermit: Will you get off the stage?!?! -Beautiful Day Monster leaves stage- Uhhh, sorry about that folks. Anyways, our guest star tonight is that lovely and talented star of movies, stage, and television, Michele Lee!
Kermit: Yes. But first......it's time for a coffee break!
MUSICAL NUMBER: Coffee Break (from How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying) (in the style of the 2011 revival), lead by Floyd and Miss Piggy as they are fighting over the last cup of coffee, backed up by whatnots in business attire. There's also a tango part Floyd and Miss Piggy, unwillingly, dance to. In the end, Miss Piggy pushes Floyd off the coffee machine and grabs the last cup of coffee.
Statler: You know, I could really go for some coffee myself right now.
Waldorf: Why is that?
Statler: To keep me from sleeping through this show.
Kermit: Okay, nice job, everyone.
Miss Piggy and Floyd enter, bickering.
Kermit: Oh no...not again. -to the bickering Miss Piggy and Floyd- STOP IT!!! Now, Floyd, Piggy, what's the matter this?
Miss Piggy: Floyd lied to me, Kermit! This isn't coffee!
Floyd: Get a grip, woman, it's just a number!
Miss Piggy: It's WATER! HOT WATER!
Floyd: So what? Hot water....you need it with coffee, Piggylocks. -laughs-
Miss Piggy throws the water at Floyd.
Floyd: -angrily blinks- That.....burned. -walks off-
Miss Piggy: Kermie, I want that Beatles Wannabe fired! FIRED! Moi has been FED UP with him and his snarky comments.

Kermit: -gasp- Fozzie, I thought I was the producer of this show.
Fozzie: You are? Since when?
Gonzo: -rushes over to Kermit- Hey, Kermit! Will you sign this petition?
Kermit: Don't tell me....
Fozzie: You can tell me, Gonzo. What is it for?

Michele: One at a time, one at a time.
Miss Piggy: Ha! Moi got here first.
Floyd: That's 'cause you were running too slow. I, on the over hand, was walkin' fast.
Michele: Is this about your stupid petitions to get each other fired?
Floyd and Miss Piggy: Yes! I mean....no!
Michele: Have some maturity, you two. I mean, c'mon, a petition?
Miss Piggy: Better than fighting, must vous agree, Michele?
Michele: Yes, I do agree, Miss Piggy.

Miss Piggy: Ah ah ah, boys don't hit girls......chicken.
Floyd: Look who's talkin, you hog.
Miss Piggy: OH YEAH?!!??!?!!
Michele: Okay, break it up! You two are acting like a married couple right now.
Miss Piggy and Floyd: Marry him/her!?!?
Michele: Guys, you two shouldn't be fighting over something like this. Are you two friends at all?
Miss Piggy and Floyd: No!
Miss Piggy and Floyd: Yeah....kinda.
Miss Piggy: Well....Floyd did help moi give advice for writing angry fan letters.
Floyd: Yeah, and they all kept their mouths shut after those letters. And Piggy here did help make arrangements for me and my main squeeze to get into that fancy Italian restaurant just a few months ago.
Miss Piggy: Moi never asked you, but how was it?
Floyd: Let's just say.......Lady and The Tramp would be proud of us.

Kermit: Oh thank goodness.
Floyd: All you gotta do now, man, is sit back, relax......and sign this document stating that "Me and Miss Piggy shall prevent any further arguments from this moment on."
Kermit: Yeesh. So many documents on this show tonight. -signs document- There, now I gotta go introduce Michele for her final number. -leaves-

Crazy Harry: -rushes onstage- I'll say!
Miss Piggy: Don't you dare! HIYAAAA! -karate chops Crazy Harry- Take that, weirdo.

Sam: Sick and weird....it wasn't like it used to be. Calm and peaceful and patriotic....now it's infested with weirdos like yourselves.
Sam: And I specifically request a patriotic closing number for tonight's show.
Kermit: I wish I could do that, Sam, but I promised Ann-Margret the closing number.
Sam: Anne Margaret?
Kermit: Yeah. Ann-Margret.
Sam: Oh...well that's perfectly fine. She is a very patriotic lady like herself.
Kermit: I'm sure she is, Sam.
Sam: In fact, I've known Anne Margaret for years.
Kermit: YOU know Ann-Margret?
Sam: Of course. We used to talk about politics all the time in the community center.
Kermit: Ummm....and how long ago was this?
Sam: Years ago, Kermit. Years ago.
Kermit: Now listen, I have to go introduce Ann-Margret for her first number.

Kermit: Excellent job out there, Ann-Margret.
Ann-Margret: Thank you, Kermit.
Sam: What did I just watch?
Kermit: Ann-Margret, Sam.
Sam: But YOU, sir, said Anne Margaret. This, my good man, is NOT Anne Margaret.
Ann-Margret: But, Sam, I AM Ann-Margret.
Sam: You are not Anne Margaret! You are an abomination to America, with their sultry blues numbers and tight dresses. Humph!
Ann-Margret: Did you have any idea what he just said, Kermit?
Kermit: Do you want me to get Miss Piggy to karate chop him?
Ann-Margret: It's fine.

Miss Piggy: Awww, merci bocoup, Ann-Margret. Listen, moi happened to hear about your situation with Sam.
Ann-Margret: Yeah. Is there really another woman named "Anne Margaret" on this show?
Miss Piggy: Unfortunately yes, and she's not the brightest "Anne Margaret" either.
Ann-Margret: What is she? A showgirl? A monster? A pig?
Miss Piggy: Ahem. Moi is the only pig female on this show.
Ann-Margret: What about Annie Sue? She's a pig, and she's female.
Miss Piggy: Oh forget her. She's not worthy enough to meet a super celebrity like yourself.
Ann-Margret: But what about "Anne Margaret?"
Miss Piggy: What about vous, Ann-Margret?
Ann-Margret: I really have to meet this "Anne Margaret" woman. And fast.
Miss Piggy: Why's that?
Ann-Margret: So I can prove that I'm the only here.
MUSICAL NUMBER: I'm Still Here (from "Follies"), sung by Ann-Margret and Miss Piggy
SWEDISH CHEF: Anne Margaret (the old lady) assists The Swedish Chef, but says he's doing everything wrong.
Sam: Ahhh. Now with that abomination who calls herself "Anne Margaret" has gone, we shall now continue with Anne Margaret's patriotic closing number.
Kermit: Well....I guess. I mean, I did promise it to you.
Anne Margaret: I'm doing a number?
Sam: Yes, you are, Anne. Now go! Go! Go onstage! -Anne Margaret goes onstage-
Kermit: Oh where's Ann-Margret?
Kermit: Now I mean..."Ann-Margret." "Viva Las Vegas," "Bye Bye Birdie," you've never heard of Ann-Margret, Sam?
Sam: I do not know of this other Ann-Margret you speak of.
Kermit: SHE'S OUR GUEST STAR!!!!!!
Sam: Yelling is something I will NOT tolerate. Introduce the closing number.
Kermit: I will! -goes onstage-
Kermit: -sigh- And now, ladies and gentlemen, the lady who is not really our guest star but SOME people presume she is.......
Sam: She IS our guest star.
Kermit: Mrs. Anne Margaret.
MUSICAL NUMBER: America, The Beautiful, sung by Mrs. Anne Margaret. The REAL Ann-Margret then pops out and counters it by singing Bye Bye Birdie.
Kermit: Well folks, I think tonight was a VERY confusing night for a lot of us, if you know what I mean. But before we go, let us say thank you to our guest star, ladies and gentlemen, the REAL Ann-Margret! YAAAAAAAAAY!
Ann-Margret: Kermit, thank you so much. I hope no there was real confusion on tonight's show.
Kermit: As long as there's no two Kermits, we're perfectly safe, Ann-Margret.
Karmit (a random old frog): Wait....my name is Kermit.
Ann-Margret: Oh no......not again.
Kermit: Uhhh, we'll see you next time on The Muppet Show!
(Goodnights: Kermit, Karmit, Miss Piggy, Sam Eagle, Mrs. Anne Margaret and two of The Gills Brothers)

Kermit: Yes. But first, a song that probably describes Miss Piggy's love for fashion pretty well....
MUSICAL NUMBER: Shop Around, lead by Miss Piggy, backed up by three Paris model-esque whatnots, in a Paris setting. Throughout the song, Miss Piggy changes into different outfits and types, including a princess outfit, a swimsuit, a cowgirl outfit, and, by the end of the song, a punk rock 'n' roll outfit.

Kermit: Piggy, you look fine.
Miss Piggy: No....I look like I just came from a horror movie.
Uncle Deadly: -passing by- Then what do I look like? Huh? -leaves-
Miss Piggy: Weirdo! Humph.
Pat: Miss Piggy, what's the matter?
Miss Piggy: My outfit....I look.....-notices Pat's outfit, whom looks like a 1920's flapper-....amazing.
Pat: I wish I had your outfit on right now, Miss Piggy.
Miss Piggy: -gasp- Really? Err....I mean, yes. Moi does look amazing.
Pat: Yeah, you do. I'm not really diggin' this flapper outfit right. But, hey, I can deal with it.
Kermit: Oh, Pat, are you ready for your number?
Pat: I guess so, Kermit. Whenever you're ready, I am.
Pat and Kermit then head onstage, leaving Miss Piggy by herself to think.
Miss Piggy: Hmmm....maybe moi should consider something from this. Benefit. Hmmmm.
Miss Piggy then reads something in the newspaper that was left there by Kermit and then dials a number on a nearby telephone.

Circus Monkey: Hey, get back here! I still need to show my power to break glass using my voice. -runs after Fozzie-
Kermit: I better go find some ear plugs before the circus monkey starts to sing opera selections. Scooter!
Scooter rushes in, wearing an outfit that is very similar to Miss Piggy's punk rock 'n' roll outfit.
Scooter: Yes, boss?
Kermit: -widens eyes- Scooter, what are you wearing?
Scooter: Oh, it's the latest fashion craze.
Kermit: You? Fashion crazes? That's something Miss Piggy would be worrying about.
Scooter: But this fashion IS by Miss Piggy.
Scooter: Yeah, everybody's wearing them. She calls it "Piggy Rock 'n' Roll."
Kermit: Uhh....Ahem. Anyways, Scooter, will you get me some earplugs before the monkey starts to............

Kermit: Yes, saying that crazy is our popular word of the day. What am I to do?

Waldorf: I'm not sure. Maybe next, they'll make an outfit created by cows.
Cow: Mooooo! That's not funny! -hits Statler and Waldorf with tail, which makes them fall off the balcony- Well, c'mon! Hit me with your best shot! Don't be chickens!
Well, here you go, Greengables95! I hope you enjoyed this outline. And I hope the rest of you did, too!

Although, Gonzo's thrown into the orchestra before the song ends. "Long Tall Sally" then falls for Animal, but Animal runs off the stage.
Waldorf: Maybe Sally doesn't like her men short.

Scooter: Well they both can't do it.
Kermit: Wait a minute! Maybe they can.
Scooter: Or maybe they can.
Mitna: -coming backstage- Ooooooh I'm too clammed up. I'm too stuffed. -burp- -leaves-
Kermit: Uhhh Scooter will you go introduce Dolly Parton while I go see if I can talk to Lubbock Lou and Dr. Teeth about doing the closing number together?
Scooter: It would be my honor, boss. -goes onstage-
Scooter: Ladies and gentlemen, it is now my honor to introduce our guest star, the lovely and talented Miss Dolly Parton!
Kermit: -offstage- Scooter.
Kermit: -offstage- Yay.

MUSICAL NUMBER: Love Is Like A Butterfly, sung by Dolly, in a spring meadow setting, surrounded by butterflies.
Butterflies surround the balcony
Statler: Look at these butterflies. There's too many of them.
Waldorf: I know. I think I have a few of them in my stomach.
PIGS IN SPACE: Dr. Julius Strangepork finds an old record player on board the Swinetrek. It turns out that whatever song it plays, someone sings along to it, no matter how bad the song is (or how much First Mate Piggy detests it).
UK SKETCH: MUSICAL NUMBER: Somewhere (from West Side Story), sung by Robin on top of a cloud.
BACKSTAGE (Dolly's Dressing Room):
Dolly is fixing her hair, when there's a knock at the door.
Dolly: Come in, sugar.
Enter Floyd and Janice.
Janice: Hi, Dolly!
Dolly: Floyd, Janice, what can I do for y'all?
Floyd: We kinda have a situation on our hands right now.
Dolly: What situation?
Janice: Like Kermit promised that our band would do the closing number with you....
Floyd: But then he gave it to Lubbock Lou and his Jughuggers. Now he wants both bands to the closing number together.
Dolly: And what do you think of that situation, Floyd?
Floyd: We asked first. We deserve to sing with you.
Enter Slim Wilson and Lou.
Slim Wilson: Nu uh, hippie boy. We asked first.
Floyd: Oh yeah!
Slim Wilson: Yeah!
Floyd: OH YEAH!
Slim Wilson: YEAH!
Dolly: Fellas, fellas, let's not start any fightin' here. Any update, Lou?
Lou: Their band leader and our band leader, Lubbock Lou, are in negotiations right now.
Janice: When will we like hear a response?
Lou: I don't know. All I heard was.......no.
Dolly: Oh come on, I think it'd be fun to have two bands perform together.
Slim Wilson: Not for us.
Dolly: Come on. It's not about force to bring you guys together. It's the music that always brings people together. Even rivals.
Floyd: Dolly's got a point there. What was the real reason we joined our respective bands in the first place?
Slim Wilson: To make music, that's what.
Floyd: Right. Maybe it is time we bring our bands together.
Slim Wilson: Maybe it is time.
MUSICAL NUMBER: In The Ghetto, sung by Dolly, accompanied by Floyd, Janice, Slim Wilson and Lou.
MUPPET LABS: Bunsen has invented a wristwatch time machine, which can also make items from the past appear. A dinosaur then appears and chases after Beaker.

Kermit: Uhhh somebody get that dinosaur out of the theater!
Bunsen: Don't worry, Kermit, I will take care of it.
Beaker: Mee mee mee! Mee mee mee!!!!
Dr. Teeth: Okay, my little green friend, Lubbock Lou and I have come to an agreement on Dolly Parton's closing number.
Kermit: Oh good.
Lubbock Lou: We have decided that the Electric Mayhem take the number after all.
Kermit: What? No, I asked if you two do it together.
Dr. Teeth: Lubbock Lou doesn't even know who Dolly Parton is. Come to think of it, neither does Zoot.
Zoot: Huh? Who are we playing with?
Dr. Teeth: Janis Joplin. She's come back from the dead.
Dr. Teeth: Positive.
Kermit: Look, at this point, I don't really care who's doing Dolly Parton's closing number, JUST SOMEBODY GET ON STAGE BEFORE I FLIP OUT!
Lubbock Lou: You already are.....
Kermit: It is now my privilege to introduce a first on The Muppet Show. A collaboration between our own Dr. Teeth and The Electric Mayhem and Lubbock Lou and his Jughuggers, along with our guest star, Miss Dolly Parton! YAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
MUSICAL NUMBER: All I Can Do, sung by Dolly, accompanied and backed up by The Electric Mayhem and Lubbock Lou and his Jughuggers.
Kermit: Well folks, we sure had a rousing time here tonight. Rock and country really can go together....even if it means threatening to fire them. But before we go, let us thank our guest star, again Miss Dolly Parton! YAAAAAAAAY!
Dolly: Kermit, thank you ever so ever for havin' me on the show. It was really swell.
Animal: -runs onstage- Dolly! Dolly! Dolly!
Dolly: Awww, Animal, you're quite an affectionate one there.
Animal: Animal like Dolly more than Sally!
Dolly: Who's Sally?
Gonzo: You mean you've never met Long Tall Sally?
Kermit: No! No! Don't bring her out! We'll see you next time on The Muppet Show!
(Goodnights: Kermit, Gonzo, Animal, Floyd, Janice, Slim Wilson, Lou, Lubbock Lou, Zeke and Zoot)
Waldorf is coughing.
Statler: Do you still have butterflies in your stomach from that last number.
Waldorf: It's all I can do to get them out! -coughs out butterfly-
Butterfly: Pick on a stomach your own size, my friend!
Ehhh this one wasn't too good. I tried, though. But I did hope you enjoyed it.
Luv them! luv the Janis Joplen part.
People kept on askin' me if I was dressed up as Janis Joplen for Halloween....
What did you dress up for for Halloween?

Ohhhh. I understand.

Scooter: Oh, Jerry! Jerry Orbach! 15 seconds till curtain, Mr. Orbach!
Jerry: Scooter, are there any extra matches around here?
Scooter: For what?
Jerry: Well a friend here got me this really nice candle, but I don't have anything to light it with.
Crazy Harry: -running in- Did anyone say to light the fire?!?!? -explosion-
Jerry: Well, on a good note, at least my candle's burning.
The candle then goes out again.
Scooter: Shall I find you a match?
Jerry: Be my guest. Bring on the razzle dazzle.
TRUMPET GAG: Gonzo's trumpet sounds like the locking of a prison cell.
Gonzo: Okay, so I had it coming!
Kermit: Thank you, thank you and welcome again to The Muppet Show! Hey, tonight's going to be a fantastic show because our guest star is one of the most talented stars of Broadway, including shows like "Promises, Promises" and "Chicago," Mr. Jerry Orbach!
Statler: Promises, promises, frog!
Waldorf: Yeah, bring out Jerry Orbach or we'll be heading to Chicago!
Kermit: But fellas, Jerry's not in the opening number.
Statler: So, what's the opening number?
OPENING NUMBER: I Wanna Be Like You (from The Jungle Book), sung by Quongo the Wild Mountain Gorilla singing to a boyish like whatnot, backed up by a group of monkeys.
Statler: Yeesh, that number was so bad I think this show has officially gone bananas!
Waldorf: Then why do we keep slipping back to it? We would've slipped outta here minutes ago!
Kermit: Okay, monkeys, nice job, nice job.
Random Monkey: I'll say. The audience went ape on us! -goes off-
Kermit: And it's only the beginning of the show.........
Miss Piggy: Kermie! Kermie! Kermie!
Kermit: Yes, Piggy?
Miss Piggy: Moi has a concern....
Miss Piggy: The number moi is going to be doing with the rest of the girls this evening.
Kermit: Cell Block Tango?
Miss Piggy: We don't like it.
Kermit: Why not?
Miss Piggy: The song is about being a ruthless, murderous, criminal......which moi is NOT!
Kermit: Piggy, that's something Sam would say, not you.
Miss Piggy: What?!?! Are you calling moi a dirty criminal!?!?!
Kermit: No, I didn't like......
Miss Piggy: HIIIIIYAAAAAAAAAA! -misses karate chopping Kermit, but karate chops Sam the Eagle, whom was passing by-
Kermit: -terrified- Speaking of the eagle, I think you just knocked it out. -goes onstage-

MUSICAL NUMBER: All I Care About (Is Love) (from Chicago), sung by Jerry, backed up by a group of chorus girls (which also includes Janice and Annie Sue).
Waldorf: You know what all I care about is?
Waldorf: Leaving this show!
Kermit: Excellent job out there, ladies. Excellent job. And you too, Jerry!
Jerry: Thank you, Kermit. You know, I couldn't help but overhear a bit earlier over the fact that you want to do the Cell Block Tango as your closing number?
Kermit: Well I was supposed to.......but then Miss Piggy and the other girls didn't wanna do it.
Jerry: Why not? I think it'd be great!
Kermit: She said the number would make her look like.......-gulp-......a criminal.
Jerry: Listen, if she's so concerned about getting her reputation destroyed, why don't us guys do it?
Kermit: But the number was written for girls, Jerry.
Jerry: And if women could sing "There's Nothing Like A Dame," would they?
Jerry: Take my advice, Kermit. It'll be just as fun having us guys do the number as the girls. -goes into dressing room-
Kermit: By fun, we get mauled by the "Women's Association of America" later.
BEAR ON PATROL: Patrol Bear arrests Crazy Harry for blowing up a park statue. Patrol Bear states "He probably needs to visit a shrink," but the Police Chief counters by saying "He needs a year in the pen." (*To quote "Gee, Officer Kurpke"). Crazy Harry then blows up the police station.
UK SKETCH: MUSICAL NUMBER: Row, Row, Row Your Boat, performed by Chickens on piano. They then do it as a round.
BACKSTAGE (Jerry's dressing room):
Jerry is reading a newspaper when there's a knock on the door.
Jerry: The door is open.
Gonzo: Well it didn't say it was open. So I'm coming in anyways.
Jerry: Ah, Gonzo! Good to see ya! How've you been?
Gonzo: Terrific! I just heard that the guys are now doing the Cell Block Tango?
Jerry: That's what Kermit said.
Gonzo: Well, I wanna be in it!
Jerry: Well, that's great to hear, Gonzo.
Gonzo: Is it too late for me to sign up?
Jerry: -takes out clipboard- Nope. There's still plenty of room. Just me.....and Kermit.
Jerry: We're still pretty low on guys. We're halfway there. Do you know any other guys who'd wanna do the number?
Gonzo: Nope, but you know what would be even greater about the number?
Jerry: What's that?
Gonzo: If I tangoed with a jail cell pole at my part! I mean, it IS the Cell Block Tango after all.
Jerry: What is there left to say except....what's for me to care about?
VET'S HOSPITAL: Crazy Harry is the patient in Vet's Hospital. Nurse Piggy stated that Crazy Harry is here to visit the shrink, in which Dr. Bob replies "Shrink? His head?"
Statler: After watching that, I think I need to visit a shrink.
Waldorf: To shrink our heads, too?
Statler: No, to shrink my memory of this show!
Miss Piggy: Kermie! I hear your Cell Block Tango is going pretty well.
Kermit: Very, Piggy. In fact, our guest star is even doing the number with us.
Miss Piggy: Jerry? Him? Ha! Don't make moi laugh, Kermit.
Kermit: But you almost did, Piggy.
Miss Piggy: Well well...who else is doing the number?
Kermit: -checks clipboard- Umm....Fozzie?
Kermit: You said you were doing the Cell Block Tango, right?
Fozzie: Oh yeah yeah yeah! Hey, where's my costume?
Kermit: You're wearing it.
Fozzie: You mean we're going out on stage naked?
Kermit: No! Fozzie!
Floyd: -passing by- No one told us anything about nudity in this number.
Miss Piggy: You mean you guys are going out onstage naked?
Kermit: WILL YOU ALL BE QUIET!?!??!?! Nobody is going to the number naked!
Gonzo: -comes in, naked- Can I do it naked?
All but Gonzo: -covering their eyes- Gaaaaaaah!
Kermit: Gonzo! Please! Put some clothes on!
Floyd: Yeah, man. My eyes are burning just looking at you.
Fozzie: I think I can feel it, too.
Miss Piggy: Ummm hello? What about moi?
Floyd: What about you? Aren't your eyes burning?
Gonzo: Hey, how come my eyes aren't burning?
Kermit: Okay, can we please stop talking about this and get on stage! -Floyd and Fozzie head onstage, while Miss Piggy goes off- And Gonzo.....please put some clothes on! Scooter!
Scooter: Uh yes, chief?
Kermit: Will you introduce the number for us?
Kermit: And Scooter, one more thing?
Kermit:.......Make sure Gonzo puts some clothes on. -goes onstage-

Jerry: Ah, thank you, Kermit. Now that wasn't too bad performing the Cell Block Tango now was it?
Kermit: Actually not at all.
Miss Piggy: Oh Kermie! You looked so precious as a criminal up there!
Kermit: Uhhh...thank you, Piggy.
Miss Piggy: And don't worry. If there's ever any woman named Wilma that comes into your life.....I'll make sure to kill her for you.
Jerry: Now that's threatening.
Kermit: Yeesh. We'll see you next time on The Muppet Show!
(Goodnights: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Floyd, Scooter, Beaker and Crazy Harry)
