Minute 94 – Serving Up a Look – The Great Muppet Caper

The Muppets foil the heist, but Nicky gets one last word.

NOTES AND RESEARCH

The Music… very 80’s

Piggy knocks them out

  • Kermit helps a little

Animal – bye, bye

Policeman misses door handle

One last moment

  • “We could have had the world on a silver platter.
  • That silver’s turned to iron bars, Nicky.
  • “You’re wrong. He’s right.”

From Tough Pigs early script:

Nicky keeps the “Kermit and Fozzie are twins” joke going in the final scene, telling Kermit, “You’ll never take me alive, Fozzie!”

Once Nicky is arrested, Lady Holiday arrives, upset that nobody called her for the big climactic scene.  Successful, Kermit says that the Daily Chronicle will roll out the red carpet for them. Lady Holiday gets in on the joke and quips, “What color is the carpet now?”
