The Great Muppet Caper Minute 21 – We’ll Be Luncheoning

Miss Piggy is given plot exposition by Lady Holiday.

NOTES AND RESEARCH

Good at sitting?

Are you quite under control

  • Love the look by Lady Holiday
  • Piggy can’t stop shaking

I’ll be Luncheoning with my brother Nicky

Nicky

  • 2nd in command
  • Irresponsible parrisite
  • Squandered his half of the inheritance
  • Categorically low prospects
  • Not grateful
  • Gambles
  • Incurs bad debts using her charge accounts
  • Eats her food
  • Borrows her cars without her permission
  • Not to be trusted
  • Would not put it past him to steal her most valuable and largest jewel; the fabulous Baseball Diamond
  • Bowties are always crooked

The “plot exposition” line is delivered matter of factly, not comedically; which I love!

Tasks

  • Answer Phone
  • Straighten up office

Should Lady Holiday sweat?
