Muppets From Space

The film that answers the immortal question: what species is Gonzo? Kermit the Frog's curly-nosed friend feels alone in the world. When his breakfast cereal starts spelling out questions and he hears voices, Gonzo is convinced he must be from outer space, and his alien brothers are coming to earth. Of course, there are evil scientists (led by Jeffrey Tambor) who kidnap Gonzo to learn his secrets (like "What do you do with a nose like that?"). The usual brand of merriment from the gang is in good order, especially in the opening scene when the Muppets start the morning under one roof. It's not as memorable as earlier films, but nevertheless the joy and sly humor will warm most souls age 5 and up. Human cameos include Ray Liotta, Rob Schneider, Josh Charles, Andie MacDowell, David Arquette, and F. Murray Abraham (as Noah, no less). --Doug Thomas

[Miss Piggy runs past Statler and Waldorf]

Statler:
Is breakfast over?

Waldorf:
No, why?

Statler:
Because I think the bacon just ran out.

Pepe:
[comes to the table] The raspberry flap overs will be out in a moment.

Robin:
Hey, Uncle Kermit, what will you do now that you're on vacation?

Kermit:
Well, Robin, once I get those house painters started, l'm gonna kick back and relax.

Pepe:
Kermit? When will you fix the oven, okay?

Kermit:
[confused] What's wrong with the oven? [An explosion is heard in the kitchen. Everyone on the table react to that sound.]

Pepe:
That.

Swedish Chef:
Yurski burski popovers kaboofed!

Kermit:
Yeah... I'll put it on the top of my list...

Pepe:
There is a menu correction, okay? We will now be serving bologna sandwiches. [everyone makes disappointed sounds. Swedish Chef says something to Pepe] But no bread. [Everyone makes a disgusted noise and leaves the table]

[Kermit sees Gonzo coming downstairs looking dejected]

Kermit:
Hey, Gonzo, aren't you performing at that Bar Mitzvah today?

Gonzo:
Nah. Electric Mayhem's covering for me.

Kermit:
[concerned] But, Gonzo, you never miss the chance to get shot out of a cannon. Something wrong?

Gonzo:
No. [beat] It's just that I'm sick and tired of being a one-of-a-kind freak, that's all.

Kermit:
Gonzo, you are 'not a one-of-a-kind freak! You're a... [falters]

Gonzo:
[annoyed] A whatever?

Kermit:
Well... yeah!

Gonzo:
You see?! See what I mean? I don't even know where I came from, or who I am!

Clifford:
Yo, Kerm.

Kermit:
Hmm?

Clifford:
You weren't expecting some house painters, were you?

Kermit:
Yeah, why?

Clifford:
They're just driving away.

Kermit:
What?!

Clifford:
Animal bit one of them!

Kermit:
Oh no! [The car engine of the house painters truck starts] Wait, guys! Don't let them go! [turns to Gonzo] You know what I think you are, Gonzo?

Gonzo:
What?

Kermit:
Distinct. [turns to run to the door to try and stop the painters] Wait, guys! He didn't mean it! He's just a musician!

Animal:
Musician! Musician! Musician! [Gonzo looks over at photos of the Muppets with their respective family members, before coming to photo of himself, alone]

Gonzo:
[depressed] Distinct, huh? More like extinct... [pours the alphabet cereal in the bowl, but spills a little bit on the table] Oops. [looks at the letters spinning around, then making the words, saying, "Watch The Sky"] "Watch the sky"? Hey! Hey! Rizzo, come here. I think my Kap'n Alphabet is sending me a message.

Rizzo:
[While holding a plate with bologna] I know what you mean. I had some guacamole and it's still taking to me.

Gonzo:
No. No. Really. Look. Look. I'm not kidding. [looking at the letter cereals] It was there just a second ago. I swear, Rizzo. It said, "Watch the sky."

Rizzo:
Are you sure it didn't say "You need help?"

Gonzo:
But, but...

Rizzo:
Maybe you and your cereal would like to be alone. [takes the plate of ] Oh, hey! ? My bologna has a first name, it's O-S-C-A-R...?

Gonzo:
[he pours the cereal the bowl with letters, then grabbing a telescope] Cool. Huh? [he looks at the letters, then making the words, saying, "R U There"] "Are you there?" [calling out] RIZZOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Miss Piggy:
[to the agents taking Gonzo and Rizzo away] Hey, studmuffin, hold it!

Agent Barker:
[to the other agent] I'll deal with her.

Miss Piggy:
[sarcastically] Oh, ha-ha you'll deal with moi? Look, chumpo, I'm just trying to get a story okay.

Agent Barker:
How about this story? It's about a big bad wolf and a little pig.

Miss Piggy:
No, that's three pigs okay.

Agent Barker:
[menacingly] Not in this version.

Miss Piggy:
[frowns] Hey, Wait a minute, you're not part of an alien-protection agency! Who are you? Where are you taking Gonzo?! [He grabs her arm] hey! [A stand off between Miss Piggy and Agent Barker] Hi-yah!
