Kermit and Piggy continue dancing

Fozzie dumping sugar into…. Water?

  • Disgusting liquid on fur
  • Think the women he told about it cares?

Lady Holiday afraid her jewels are going to be stolen

“Thieves aren’t breathing down your neck”

  • Foreshadowing

Nicky sneaks out

  • Different color socks
  • Who is he unlocking the door for!!??

Feels like an old fashioned camera movement… the pan and zoom on zany action
