- Beaker (likely) flipping Scrooge the bird after the "surplus population" line.
- The book-keeping Rats who work for Scrooge, immediately after complaining to Scrooge about how cold it is:
Ebenezer Scrooge: How would the bookkeepers like to be suddenly...UNEMPLOYED?!
Rats: [suddenly wearing tropical outfits] HEAT WAVE! [singing] Oi! This is my island in the sun... Oi, oi!
- As well as this line when the bookkeeping Rats applaud Fred
Scrooge: And how does one celebrate Christmas ON THE UNEMPLOYMENT LINE?!?
- Most of the scenes with Gonzo and Rizzo tend to leave audiences roaring in laughter.
Rizzo: "Hey, light the lamp, not the rat, light the lamp nottherat! What are you doing?! Put me out, put me out putmeout!"
Gonzo: "Ah, er, um—" *spots a bucket of icy water* "Rizzo!"
Rizzo: "WHAT?!" *Gonzo pushes him off the lamp.* "AAAAAAAA—" *Rizzo splash-lands in the bucket.* "Th-thank you."
Gonzo: "You're welcome." *Rizzo defeatedly sinks back into the water.*
- Another one with Gonzo and Rizzo, with Rizzo about to jump off the top of a gate:
Rizzo: God save my little broken body. AAAAAAAAAAAA— [thud] ]glares at Gonzo, who was supposed to catch him]
Rizzo: Ugh... ooh, ooh, wait second—I forgot my jellybeans! [slips between the bars of the fence]
Gonzo: ...you can fit through those bars?
Gonzo: You are such an idiot.
- Right before that...
Rizzo: Jelly bean? I had 'em in my pocket all along.
- Rizzo expresses concern that part of this film could be too scary for kids. Gonzo replies cheerily, "Nah, it's all right, this is culture!"
- What can I say, I love puns:
Scrooge: You're a little absent-minded, Spirit.
Christmas Present: No, I'm a large absent-minded Spirit!
- That comes directly from the Dickens story.
- And I love that Statler and Waldorf, er, the Marleys are happy to heckle Dickens' writing itself.
Scrooge: Yes. There's more gravy than of grave about you.
Robert Marley: More gravy than of grave?
Jacob Marley: What a terrible pun. Where'd you get those jokes?
- But wouldn't their continuous heckling of Fozzie prove that you shouldn't leave comedy to the bears?
- Scrooge visiting the Cratchits at the end and Miss Piggy's brilliant double take.
Scrooge: Therefore I am about to raise your salary.
Emily/Miss Piggy: OOOHH! And I am about to raise you right off the pavement...pardon?
- When the Ghost Of Christmas Present takes Scrooge to his nephew Fred's house, Rizzo takes notice of a bowl of fruit and starts eating. Soon...
Gonzo: You know, that's wax.
Rizzo: Oh, yeah... I wondered about the texture... [starts spitting]
- This hilarious Call Back when Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Past visit Fezziwig's annual Christmas ball.
Fezziwig/Fozzie: At this time, it's a tradition for me to make a little speech.
Jacob Marley/Statler: And it's a tradition of ours to take a little nap!
Fezziwig/Fozzie: [as everyone laughs] Pay no attention to them! [takes out a paper] Here is the speech; "Thank you all, and Merry Christmas!"
Jacob/Statler: That was the speech?
Robert Marley/Waldorf: It was dumb!
Jacob/Statler: It was obvious!
Robert/Waldorf: It was pointless!
Jacob/Statler: It was...short.
Marleys: I loved it!
- Fezziwig is called Fozziwig in this adaptation.
- The factory Fozziwig runs is a rubber chicken factory.
- Gonzo uses Rizzo to wipe the soot off a window, to which Rizzo says "Thank you for making me a part of this."
- The part where Gonzo gets knocked off a carriage, and Rizzo's all concerned for him before he wakes up and continues his narration has this troper and her mother rolling every time we watch it.
Rizzo: Gonzo speak to me! I mean uh... Mr. Dickens! Charlie! Are ya hurt?
Gonzo: [sits up] To say that Scrooge was not startled would be untrue. Still, the moment had passed and the world was as it should be.
Rizzo: He ain't hurt. Didn't even break his concentration!
- During the Christmas past section, Gonzo and Rizzo are watching a lonely looking young Scrooge.
Rizzo: [sighs] Rats don't understand these things.
Gonzo: You were never a lonely child?
Rizzo: I had twelve hundred and seventy four brothers and sisters!
Gonzo: Geesh, rats don't understand these things.
- Sam the Eagle stands in as young Scrooge's mentor, hammering in the concept of penny pinching to exclusion of all else. He ends with this gem:
Sam: It is the American Way!
Gonzo: Um, Sam? *whisper whisper whisper*
Sam: ...it is the British Way!
- Emily Cratchit's inability to tell her own daughters apart after Belinda catches her scarfing down the roasted chestnuts:
Belinda: Mother mother mother! I thought you said we couldn't eat the chestnuts until Father and Tiny Tim get home.
Miss Piggy/Emily: I wasn't eating them, I was merely checking them. It's a chef's thing dear. And do not shout Bettina.
Belinda: I'm Belinda!
Bettina: [pops into frame] I'm Bettina!
Miss Piggy/Emily: Of course you are... [looks back and forth at twins before settling on Belinda] ..uh.. uh.. Bettina?
Miss Piggy/Emily: Whatever.
Both Girls: Hmph!
- Statler and Waldorf playing the two Marley brothers.
Scrooge: Haunted? I've already had enough!
- An outtake for, of all things, The Cratchets mourning Tiny Tim:
Kermit/Bob: I'm sure none of us will ever forget Timy Tim, for this first passing that was among us?
Bettina (or Belinda): Can I have his dinner?
- It's also funny to note that there's not a single female voice in the entire Cratchet Family: Frank Oz, Dave Goelz, and Steve Whitmire supplied the voices for Piggy, Bettina, and Belinda, respectively. One of Bettina's lines even sounds just like Gonzo.
- Fozzie attempting to get everyones attention during the christmas past scene but no luck. Then Animal walks up, looks at the camera and shouts "QUUIIIIIIEEEEEEETTT!!!!!"
- After dragged through the woods by the Ghost of Christmas Past Gonzo and Rizzo safely land...right in front of a cat.
Rizzo: (sighing in relief) Safe at last.
Cat: (behind him) meows
Rizzo: (turns around, sees the cat, then turns back to the camera and shakes his head) No. (is then chased by the cat)
