      • Fozzie: Kermit! Hey, you can't do the show without me.
        Kermit: Well, Fozzie, what choice have I got?
        Fozzie: But a Muppet Show without Fozzie Bear? It's like Gilbert without Sullivan. Ham without cheese. Poca without Hontas!
        Kermit: Poca without Hontas?!
        Fozzie: Yeah.
        Kermit: What's a Poca?
        (a pair of Polka dancers dance in)
        Kermit: I know, I know! That's a Polka! Will you guys get outta here?!
