(TRANSCRIPT)

Kermit is pestered by Lew Zealand, who wants to audition his boomerang fish act: "I throw the fish in the air... they sail away... and then they come back to me!" Meanwhile, Miss Piggy plans the closing comedy sketch -- a wedding "sketch" starring her as the bride and Kermit as the groom. Secretly, she books a real minister, and Scooter fools Kermit into signing the marriage license.

Kermit attempts to hide in Statler and Waldorf's box, offering them tickets for next week's show. The two hecklers, less than willing to oblige, throw Kermit out of the balcony.

Notes

  • After "You're Always Welcome at Our House",The Swedish Chef shows Gladys the wedding cake that he's made. The cake is topped with figures of Kermit and Piggy as the groom and bride. The figures were actually commercially available PVC toys, repainted in new clothes; Miss Piggy was made by German company Schleich, the Kermit figure is a pencil topper from the United Kingdom (company unknown).
