Tear Jerker: The Muppet Movie
Gonzo's song "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" in the desert
Kermit's epiphany immediately afterward: "Well then...I was lying when I said I never promised anybody anything. I promised me."
The final film appearance of Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, who died shortly after filming, and to whom the film is dedicated.
Kermit literally put his life on the line to rescue Miss Piggy, and how does she repay him? By running off the instant her agent calls with a hot tip on a job. It's so depressing that the film itself falls apart as the only possible segue.
