fast enough . . .]
> [E. walks in with pot and plops it on B.´s head]
> E: Here Bert, try this on!
> B: Hey, hey, Ernie, what are you doing? Get that pot off my head! Why?
> E: Well haa, ya see Bert, a little while ago, I dropped and broke the
> cookie jar.
> B: Oh, Ernie, you didn´t!
> E: Mmm hmmm.
B: Oh well, all right, so you broke the cookie jar, but what´s it gotta do
with that pot there, huh?
E: Well you see, I had to put the cookies somewhere...
E: Bert, um... just a second. I... I... I´ll show you, Bert.
B: [looks at camera] I don´t understand.
E: [brings in sugar bowl with cookies] See, I broke the cookie jar and so I
had to put the cookies in the sugar bowl, see? [takes a taste of one]
B: Well... yeah, Ernie, but but if you put the cookies in the sugar bowl,
then where´d ya put the sugar?
E: Well, I´ll show you, Bert! [famous Ernie hmm] Hmm hmm hmm [leaves with
bowl and Bert looks at camera]
B: Ya show me. [does the famous head tilt]
E: Ok, well you see, I put the sugar in the flower pot here.
B: In the flower pot?! Oh great... just great. Well _where´d_ you put the
flower that was growing there, huh?
E: Oh I´ll show you, Bert! [takes away the pot]
B: Ya gonna show me again... I don´t get this.
E: [brings in milk bottle and flower] Ya see, I had to plant this flower here
into this milk bottle, see... nicely planted, I watered it and everthing.
B: [Looking very stunned] [E. looks straight into camera all proud, shaking
his head about his nose] ERNIE!!!! [Shaking head]
[ Muppets Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
E: [Calmly] Hmm?
B: Well now WHERE is the milk?!
E: Oh, I´ll show you, Bert.
B: [E. leaves] Ya gonna show me where the milk is too. Oh Ernie, I ...
[looks at E. returning with a root beer bottle.. stunned]
E: See I put the milk into the, uh, soda bottle
B: [Gets close to E. in quiet voice gradually getting louder] Ernie... I´m
trying to be patient, but __where__ is the soda??
E: Oh just a second, Bert, I´ll show you... [calmly as usual, Bert getting
more stunned and irritated gives out his famous]
E: [Brings in the soda-filled fishbowl] It wasn´t easy, but I put the soda in
the [straining] mmm fishbowl
B: In the fishbowl?! Ernie, this is CRAZY!! Now where are the fish?!?
E: Oh... well, I´ll show you, Bert. [even calmer than before]
B: [stares into camera as E. leaves for a few seconds and ...] Ooohhhh,
Ernie, what are you doing now? [Mouth wider than ever in shock]
E: Oh, I gotta carry it out here, Bert... I put the fish in... to... the
cowboy hat, ya see.
B: [looks down into hat as fish squirts water in B.´s face] Oh, no... Eeeyah!
[wipes faces stands there with mouth firmly closed very angry]
E: [points calmly at fish in hat] Take it easy there, fella.
B: [angrily] Ernie, Ernie, that is MY cowboy hat...
E: Yeah, so? [VERY calmly]
B: But ya, you but the fish in it, Now what am I gonna do when I wanna play
E: Oh, umm, well [reaches for pot and puts it on B.´s head] Ride em cowboy,
Bert! [pats Bert on back] [E.´s patented laugh] Keheeheeheehee
[End music begins with Bert standing there as usual, and Ernie leaving.
There was one neat trick done in it, at the end when Ernie put the pot
on Bert´s head (probably at the beginning.. which I didn´t see). You
know how Ernie´s hands are real and the person´s arm go in at his
elbows, which are always below the counter/stage, but to get the pot
on the head, the hand person, had to make a quick .. nicely-done move
behind Bert and up with the pot.. with Elbow behind Bert so Ernie´s
hand is up in the air with nothing showing.
