Minute 49 – One of Ron Weasley’s Brothers – The Great Muppet Caper

The small song and dance turns into a huge theatrical number as “The First Time it Happens” continues while Nicky and Lady Holiday watch on.


“The First Time It Happens”

And for each new moment that it lasts

How sweet it is

Miss Piggy & Kermit:

The first time together

How simple, how rare

Miss Piggy:

And just when you thought

You’d forgot how to care


And though you feel much more

Than you’d dare to show


The first time it happens

You know…

The first time you see her

No magical change

No angels appearing

No dreams to arrange


Strong frog arms

Fozzie watching dreamily in background occasionally… nice touch

Piggy having a great time; goes off twirling; becomes the center of attention

Kermit goes into the table to talk to Fozzie

  • “She’s great”
  • Had to cut to Fozzie to break Kermit and Piggy apart

Nicky mesmerized

Lady Holiday bored? Impatient?

Why are they event there together? Weird place for a brother sister. Especially when they are not even having fun.
