- While reading the script for John Denver & the Muppets: A Christmas Together, Kermit recites, "a Christmas message from all of us to all of you: peace on Earth, goodwill toward men." Piggy stops to object about the omission of women from the statement. Denver's defense is that they took it from the Bible. Piggy counters, "the Bible is filled with women. This one begat that one and that one begat the other one... from all the begating that went on, it's quite obvious there was a great deal of goodwill toward women."
