Funny: The Muppets Take Manhattan
  • Poor Gonzo, he didn't even get to go through the ring of fire.
  • When Piggy slammed the amnesiac Kermit into a wall, and that's what gets his memory back!
    • Before that, the amnesiac Kermit laughs at the idea of him and Miss Piggy being in a relationship.
    Kermit: Me? In love with a pig? Wait 'til I tell the guys in marketing! Ha ha! Maybe you expected me to go HOG-wild? Perhaps you could bring home the BACON! Ahhh... the sounds of love, SU-EEEEE! Oink, oink!
  • Animal, as always.
  • When Joan Rivers gives Miss Piggy a makeover in the store, and goes way overboard, and even when she is fired, they both still can't stop laughing.
  • It's just nutty how the Sesame Street gang kept making cameos throughout the film!
    • If by "throughout the film", you mean just the ending...
  • Rats in the Kitchen!
    • One of them putting butter on his feet and acting like he's ice skating on the stove.
  • Kermit's Traveling Salesman Montage, which involves Kermit putting on goofy disguises and then trying to talk hip.
  • The "Whisper Campaign" that rats disrupt by letting themselves be seen, causing everyone to scream and panic.
  • Janice's Seven Minute Lull moment is hysterical.
  • One of the slogans for the soap that one of the frog marketing guys comes up with, "'Ocean Breeze Soap'...For People Who Don't Want To Stink!"
    • Then there's Kermit's idea of a slogan; "Ocean Breeze Soap will get you clean." It's hailed as Crazy Enough to Work for actually stating what the product does.
    • His options on the first two ideas: "I don't like it." and "Seems awful long."
  • Kermit & Piggy's argument in Central Park about "The Huggies!"note 
  • The Muppets becoming babies in Piggy's imagination. Baby Kermit falling off the rocking horse especially.
  • Real-life Mayor of NYC Ed Koch's cameo
    Gonzo: Mr. Mayor, Mr. Mayor! I'm looking for a frog who can sing and dance!
    Ed: He can also balance the budget, I'll hire him!
  • This scene:
    Statler: Well, Waldorf, they finally made it to Broadway.
    Waldorf: Yes, and I already bought tickets.
    Statler: Are they good seats?
    Waldorf: Sure are. They're on the next train out of town!
    Both: DO-HO-HO-HO-HO!
