Cold open

Clifford walks down the hall, encountering Johnny singing "Rags to Riches", surrounded by Tony Bennett memorabilia.
Clifford Johnny! What you doin' in the green room?
Johnny Oh, Clifford! I'm so glad you stopped in. Listen, in honor of Tony being on the show, I thought I'd bring in a few of my collectibles from home.
Clifford You brought in all this yourself?
Johnny Oh, you better believe it, kid. (laughs)
Sal (carrying a box) I got the last one here, Johnny.
Johnny Oh, thank you, Sal. Listen, put it over there, huh, pal?
Sal Okay.
Johnny Great. Look, Clifford, I got every album Tony ever made, including this very rare, Sergeant Tony's Lonely Hearts Club Gang, which, by the way, came out a week before the one with those other guys.
Clifford The Beatles?
Johnny ... Whatever. Anyway, look, I got the Tony Bennett lunchbox, huh? And then, and then I got the Tony Bennett action figure with kung-fu grip. And then, I got a full case of his canned pasta, Rig-a-Tony Bennett!
Sal You want I should open a can, Johnny?
Johnny Sal. Is it New Year's?
Sal No. Sorry, Johnny.
Clifford Uh, listen, well, I gotta go. You guys are startin' to scare me.
Johnny Oh no, Clifford, wait, hold, hold ––
Clifford Word, word?
Johnny You have not yet seen the piece of resistance. Sal, the curtain!
Sal Whoa! Here we go ...
Johnny Watch this...
Sal pulls back a red curtain to reveal a Tony Bennett statue in a glass case.
Sal Ta-dum!
Johnny Huh? Yes, to the untrained eye, it would appear that I have Tony Bennett locked in this here case. But, in truth, it is a fully operational automated Tony Bennett, of which I got the only one ever made, watch this.
He switches it on. The automa-Tony sings "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" as a film of a cable car is projected behind him.
Clifford Wow! That's amazing!
Sal Yeah.
Johnny Yeah, yeah, I know. And, and he'll even tell your fortune.
He presses a button.
Tony Beware of falling cows.
Clifford What kinda stupid fortune is that?
A cow falls on him.
Cow (JN) That kind.
Johnny and Sal glance at each other.

Theme

Kermit opens the doors to the Muppet Theater.
Kermit It's Muppets Tonight, with our very special guest star, Tony Bennett!
He is immediately trampled by theater patrons. Clifford sings the theme song while wandering through the dressing room to the control room to the stage, as Jowls whistles. Clifford reaches the stage, goes to a wall and throws a switch which lights up the show's title.


Opening number

Open on the house band.
A. Ligator And now, here's the host of our show, C'lifford!
Clifford comes onstage to applause.
Clifford Hey! What's up, what's up! Welcome to Muppets Tonight, the show that has something for every man, woman and child.
Rizzo Hey, what about my people?
Clifford Oh yeah, how could I forget our always-important rat population?
Rizzo Thank you. Haha.
Clifford Any hue, tonight's special guest is one of the great singers of this or any other generation, Mr. Tony Bennett!
Applause. Tony stands on stage with Kermit.
Kermit Oh, thank you. Thank you very much. Ahh!
Tony How about that? It gets 'em.
Kermit Yeah. Whoo.
Tony Thank you. Hey Kermit, have you ever sung "Firefly" before?
Kermit Well, I can't say that I have, Tony, but you know, I've certainly eaten a few. (Tony laughs) They're a good, light snack. (chuckles)
The band starts playing.
Tony Oh boy. Hey, come on, let's do this.
Kermit Okay, you start it off, okay?
Tony Alright.
They sing "Firefly". Spamela emerges dressed as one, attracting Andy and Randy. When they try to touch her, sparks fly and her tail-bulb starts to short.
Randy I can fix it.
Andy I can help you.
POP! Spamela shrieks. Nigel, Eugene and Rizzo watch from the control room.
Nigel Oh, good grief. Spamela's smoking.
Rizzo Haha, is she ever!
Nigel No, no, somebody get a fire extinguisher!
Rizzo (scrambling) Fire extinguisher, yeah...
Onstage, Tony and Kermit finish the duet, while Andy fires a fire extinguisher at Spamela. Andy and Randy touch her behind, and get electrocuted. Switch to the nursing home.
Statler What's that famous song Tony Bennett sings?
Waldorf "I Left My Heart in San Francisco".
Statler Big deal! I left my teeth in Minneapolis.
They chuckle.


NYPD Green

Crime scene, night. Kermit and Gary approach the scene as the theme music plays.
A. Ligator And now for tonight's exciting episode of NYPD Green.
Kermit Did you see where he went?
Gary Nah. Nah, I think we lost him.
Kermit Aw, I can't believe we let that filthy dirtbag get away.
Censor (LCR) Excuse me. Excuse me.
Kermit Uh, who are you?
Censor (LCR) I'm the network censor, and you cannot call someone a "filthy dirtbag" on a family show.
The frogs laugh sheepishly.
Kermit Oh –– Oh, no, no, no.
Gary No, no –– you, you misunderstood.
Kermit (picks up a dirt bag) Yeah, you see, we were actually talking about an actual filthy bag of dirt here that was stolen.
Gary Yeah.
Censor (LCR) Oh... Sorry. Please continue. (exits)
Kermit Okay. Uh, where were we? Uh ... oh, I think it's your line. (takes his place)
Gary My line. Yes. Yes.
Kermit Yep yep yep. Ahem.
Gary Uh, I swear, Detective Amphibowitz, I will not rest until we catch that slimy scuzzball.
Censor (LCR) Stop! Stop! You cannot say "slimy scuzzball".
Kermit Oh, no. You misunderstood again.
Gary Yeah, no no, you see, the guy that stole the filthy dirtbag is actually a slimy scuzzball.
Kermit That's right, that's right. Uh, Scuzz, could you come in here for a second please?
The scuzzball rolls into view, disgusting the censor.
Scuzzball (JN) That's right, lady. I'm a scuzzball. I live under the couch. The cat coughed me up. You got a problem with that?
Censor (LCR) No, that's fine. I'm sorry. (the scuzzball rolls away) Uh ... carry on.
She walks over to a vampire kissing a fish.
Vampire (DG) Ah-ah-ah. Oh, my little baby. Mwah. Mwah.
Censor (LCR) I suppose this is a bloodsucking bass-kisser?
Kermit No, that's Don, the prop guy.
Gary Wow, lady, you got a filthy mind on you.
Kermit Come on, Gary, let's just flip off the camera.
Censor (LCR) What?
He walks to the camera and shuts it off.


Gonzo's stunt

Main stage. Applause.
Clifford Yeah. Give it up. Heh heh heh. And now, Muppets Tonight nervously presents Gonzo the Great and his misguided missiles of death!
Applause. The house band plays a fanfare as Gonzo slides in and bumps into Clifford.
Gonzo Thank you, Clifford! Whoa! ... Hey! Good evening, danger lovers. Tonight, I, the great Gonzo, will attach myself to this intercontinental ballistic missile, and ski-jump over eight, live, free-range chickens!
Chickens (clucking)
Clifford Yo, yo Gonzo. Why do you need a rocket just to jump over chickens?
Gonzo I give up, Clifford. Why do you need a rocket just to jump over chickens?
Clifford No, man, it's not a joke!
Clifford You're telling me! You should see my insurance premiums!
The chickens laugh at his joke. Clifford walks off, and Gonzo gets into place.
Gonzo Chickens... a little Wagner, please.
They cluck "Ride of the Valkyries".
Gonzo Okay Camilla, let 'er rip! Ha ha!
Camilla presses a button and launches the missile. Gonzo sails out of the auditorium, through the backstage doors, and past Rizzo's desk.
Rizzo Bet you won't see that on Friends. Heh.
Gonzo shoots into the elevator, and the door closes. The door opens at the lobby, and Gonzo shoots out of the elevator past Bobo.
Bobo Have a good day, sir.
Back at the control room...
Nigel Yes, and everything's going smoothly, team. Gonzo cleared those chickens with about 18,000 miles to spare. (laughs) And that leaves us with... nothing. (does a take) Nothing?!? There's nothing on stage! Quick quick quick! (scrambles to the control panel) Cue The Johnny Fiama Show! Get out of the way!

Backstage / Johnny Fiama Show

Rizzo (into earpiece) Cue Johnny Fiama.
Clifford Oh, man, did you see that? Did you see that?
Rizzo Yeah.
Clifford That was great! Did you see Gonzo take off?
Rizzo Oh, yeah.
Clifford Well, where'd he land?
Rizzo Uh, well, technically, chief, he –– he hasn't.
Clifford Say what?
Rizzo Uh-uh.
Clifford Well where's he at, then?
He walks over to Dr. Bunsen and Beaker operating a radar.
Bunsen Well, Clifford, we're tracking Gonzo right now, and according to our calculations, he has just passed over Perth, and is now somewhere near Rapid City, South Dakota.
Clifford Heh heh. Well alright!
Meanwhile, Gonzo zooms past Mount Rushmore.
Gonzo Hello, Mr. President!
Washington That was cool.
Jefferson Whoa, that guy can fly fast and stuff.
Roosevelt Heh heh. You said "Fly." Heh heh, heh heh.
Lincoln Huh huh. Shut up, rockhead.
They all laugh like Beavis and Butt-head. Meanwhile, back at the radar...
Bunsen Now he's over Turkey. Now he's over Greece. Now he's overeaten. (laughs) I made a funny.
A bell dings.
Clifford Yo, Dr. Dew. What does that bell mean?
Bunsen I think that means that Gonzo has reached the apogee of his trajectory.
Lew Zealand (opens a microwave) Nope. That means... my popcorn is done! (laughs, walks away)
Clifford While you guys keep an eye on Gonzo, I'ma go and check out the Johnny Fiama talk show. Hope he's not doing a Letterman ripoff.
Rizzo Nahh. He would never do that.
Switch to the show, which is indeed a ripoff. Johnny reads from a list, "Top Ten Reasons Chicks Dig Me", while Sal sits on the guest couch with a plate of cannoli.
Johnny Number 2... (reads) My monkey bodyguard is there to flick away the flies. (laughs)
Rimshot.
Sal Aw ... (laughs)
Johnny And the number 1 reason chicks dig me... (drumroll; he reads) I still cry when Bambi's mother buys the farm!
He and Sal laugh. Applause.
Johnny Okay, alright, thank you, Sal. We're moving on, huh? And now it's time to, to bring out my first guest. I tell ya, I am so excited. Uh, let me explain. Tony Bennett is my all-time favorite idol. I am so nervous. We've never met. Uh, the man –– he loves a marinara with linguini, like I do. So, let's bring him out. I'm very excited. Very nervous. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Tony Bennett!
The band plays a refrain from "I Left My Heart..." as Tony enters, shakes Johnny's hand and sits on the couch.
Johnny Oh, my ...
Tony Great to finally meet you, Johnny.
Johnny (clams up)
Tony Is he okay, Sal?
Sal Yeah, yeah. He's just scared out of his gourd to meet you. Want a cannoli?
Tony Uh, no. No, thanks.
Sal Eh, suit yourself.
Tony Johnny, maybe you and I should just sing a song and--
Johnny Uh, song?
Tony Yeah, come on.
Johnny Now?
Tony stands up as the band begins to play.
Tony Yeah, now.
Sal Yeah, come on, Johnny.
Tony We'll have fun.
Tony and Johnny take center stage. They try to get through a duet of "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off", but Johnny stammers all the way through, ultimately fainting.
Tony Ha! I guess we'll call the whole thing off. Hey, Sal, save me a cannoli.
Sal (mouth full) Yeah, sure. Oops. I--I finished them all.
Music button.

The Tubmans of Porksmith

The dining room. Howard eats a piece of cake, while Carter approaches with a tape measure.
A. Ligator And now, the continuing saga of America's oldest and fattest family, The Tubmans of Porksmith.
Howard Carter?
Carter Yes?
Howard I believe these trousers need to be let out again.
Carter (grunts) For the seventeenth time this year, sir, you must learn to control your lust for dessert!
Howard Mmm! Dessert. Well, that reminds me. There's a colonial rum cake I've put away. We'll celebrate the letting out of my pants! What say you?
A band of robbers enter and stick 'em up.
Robber (AT) (a la Edward G. Robinson) Alright, you fine New England gentlemen, this is a robbery, see! Meh!
Howard Please! Please! Take anything! I abhor violence!
Robber (DM) Hey, shut yer trap. We want your gold and your jewels, and your ––
Robber (AT) Hey! Look what we have here. It's a safe.
Howard No –– please! Don't open that! I beg of you, take anything but that!
He opens the safe and finds ...
Robber (AT) A colonial rum cake?
Robber (DM) What sort of a Yankee Doodle dummy puts a cake in a safe?
Robber (AT) Oh, well, let's have a piece, huh?
Robber (DM) Yeah.
Howard Oh no you don't!
Robbers Huh?
Howard I told you not to touch that!
He beats up the robbers, who flee.
Howard Don't touch my rum cake! Don't you dare touch my rum cake! No, no, no, no, don't –– leave! Well, that's a shame. I was going to ask them to stay for a cup of tea.
Carter I'll have a cup of tea, sir.
Howard Oh, excellent.
Carter And I wouldn't mind a slice of that colonial rum cake.
Carter walks toward the safe; Howard knocks him down and guards the safe.
Howard Huh? Not with my rum cake, you don't, mister! Don't you try it.
Fade to black.

Carl

Main stage. Applause.
Clifford Yeah. Welcome back to Muppets Tonight. Let's give a big welcome to an act that I know you'll like: the musical stylings of Carl, the big mean bunny.
Applause. Carl, wearing bunny ears and carrying a violin, enters to a band fanfare.
Clifford Give it up. Give it up. –– Wait a minute. You're not a bunny.
Carl No. But I'm big and mean. Oh! What's on your tie?
He points to Clifford's tie with the violin bow, then whacks Clifford in the nose.
Carl Ha ha! Thank you.
He starts playing out of tune. Meanwhile, back in the control room...
Rizzo Uh, any news from Gonzo yet?
Bunsen Not yet. According to our calculations, he's somewhere in New York City.
Muppets (gasp) New York City?

At the Bar

Mr. Callahan enters through the doors.
Polly Lobster β™ͺ If ya want my body, and ya think I'm sexy β€” Oh! Hi, Mr. Callahan. How ya doin'? Uh, you want the usual? No? Well, let me mix you up something I call ... my Sergio Surprise!
He hands Mr. C a bubbling drink, when a green creature pops out of it and snarls.
Polly Lobster Who's that? Oh, that's Sergio. He's the surprise! Uh –– what, you don't want any? Oh. Sergio! I tried to warn you, keep your head down until after, AFTER they drink you! THEN you go nuts! (shoves him away) Alright mister, get outta here ... uh, what? What's that, Mr. C? Oh, Clueless? Yeah, he's in the back. I'll call him. CLUELESS!
Clueless comes out to applause.
Clueless Morgan Yeah, Polly, what is –– huh? (bows) Oh, thank you. Heh heh. Thank you. (does a take, inspects Mr. C) Oh, Mr. Callahan, now you've crossed a line. With those kinda stretch marks, you really gotta wear a one piece.
Polly Lobster Uh, say Clueless, what's new with you and the missus?
Clueless Morgan Oh, not much. Uh, but we're expecting a blessed event.
Polly Lobster (gasp) You're kiddin'! You're gonna have a baby?
Clueless Morgan Oh, no, they're moving a mouth-watering, lip-smacking junkyard in next door, and uh, if that's not a blessed event, I don't know what is.
Polly Lobster (bursts out laughing)
Clueless Morgan "I don't know what is."
Polly Lobster You already did the punchline. Heh heh heh.
Clueless Morgan Oh, really? (Polly gives him a look) –– Paul?
The pianist plays, and Polly and Morgan sing "Home on the Range", when they're trampled by a buffalo. Polly gets up.
Polly Lobster Ooh. That's gonna hurt in the morning.


Backstage / "Boulevard of Broken Dreams"

Sal assists Johnny in packing up his Tony memorabilia.
Johnny Aw, Salley, I can't believe I passed out in front of Tony Bennett.
Sal (shrugs) Eh.
Johnny "Eh?" Like that's not a big thing or somethin'? Tonight was the single most embarrassing moment of my life!
Sal Yeah, what about that time that you ralphed all over the Japanese prime minister?
Johnny That wasn't me. That was George Bush. Why do you always confuse us?
Sal I'm sorry, Mr. Presid-- I mean, Johnny.
Johnny Alright. Pack, huh? (Sal resumes) I can only hope that not too many people saw what happened tonight.
Sal Well, if that's what you're hoping, Johnny, then you shouldn't look at today's Variety. See?
Johnny Huh?
Sal holds up the magazine, which has the headline "RATINGS RISE AS FIAMMA [sic] FALLS".
Johnny No, Sal, I shouldn't look at that.
Sal So, uh, what DO you want I should do then, Johnny?
Johnny Nothing. All right? Nothing. I just want to be alone now, huh?
Sal You want me to help you be alone?
Johnny No, Sal! Just go, huh? Go.
Sal ... Sorry, Johnny. (walks away) I was, uh... just uh, trying to help.
Sad piano music plays as Sal exits. He walks through a dark room, illuminated by the light shining through a Venetian blind. He remembers Johnny, who appears in balloons ...
Johnny (in left balloon) No, Sal. Get out! Out! (in right balloon) Sal, would you get off of the dashboard, huh?
The balloon disappears, then reappears again as Sal looks away.
Johnny (in right balloon) Sal, stop-- I'm over here, you stupid monkey. (Sal looks) Sal, stop groomin' me.
Johnny (in left balloon) What do you mean you voted for Dukakis?
Sal continues walking, now outside, dressed in a trench coat, as the voice of Tony sings "Boulevard of Broken Dreams". He looks through the window at the control room, where Clifford and the other Muppets are whooping it up, as it starts to rain outside. Sal continues through an alley, where the cats and dogs are loud. He catches a piece of newspaper blown by the wind, then tries to walk against the wind, but gets knocked over. He walks down the hall, then opens a door to reveal Tony singing.
Tony Sal, what is it?
Sal Hey, Tony. Say, are you looking for something like a, like a new personal assistant or bodyguard or something?
Tony But Sal, you're Johnny's monkey.
Sal Yeah, not anymore. Johnny hates me now. I guess, to –– to him, I'm... I'm just a chump-anzee! (sobs on Tony)
Tony Hey, Sal. Hey, Sal-- the suit. Monkey tears don't come out.
Sal I'm sorry. The point is, Tony, I gotta find some way to get back into Johnny's good graces.
Tony Well come on, Sal. Between the two of us, I'm sure we can think of something.
Sal Yeah. (thinks with Tony) Hmm.
Angle on a clock. The time elapses from 8:40 to 8:55.
Tony I swear, I can't think of anything.
Sal Me neither.
Tony I feel like that robot Tony that you've got in the case.
Sal Hey, wait a minute. That gives me an idea!
A bell dings as they perk up.

Backstage / Closing number

Johnny sets down another memorabilia box.
Johnny Ah. Well, that'll be the last of it. ... Oh. (walks over to Robot Tony) Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony. I could always sing with you, Automaton Tony. But with the real Tony, I'm the mameluke of the year. Oh, well, pal, how about one for old time's sake, huh?
He presses the red button. Music starts to play, and Tony comes alive. Johnny and Tony sing a duet of "Shaking the Blues Away", and Tony steps out of the box and walks over to Johnny.
Johnny (stammering) It's you! It's really you!
Tony That's right, Johnny. I knew we could sing together.
Johnny Yeh ... you mean I'm singing with the real Tony?
Tony Come on, Johnny! Let's take it home!
The house band backs them up as they finish the duet in an alley.
Tony Shake 'em.
Johnny (shakes) I'm goin', Tone.
Tony Shake 'em.
Johnny (shakes) Watch me, babe.
Tony Shake 'em. That's it.
Both (big finish)

β™ͺ Don't break 'em...
β™ͺ Shakin' all your blues away!

Tony (scats)
Applause.
Johnny Ah, yeah. Yeah. Thank you so much. Thank you, Tony.
Tony Oh, don't thank me, Johnny. It was Sal who put all this together.
Johnny Sal?
He looks behind him and sees the sad monkey.
Johnny Sal, come up here, you little goofball. Come here. Come here. (Sal approaches him) Come here. Give me a hug. Huh? Come here. Come on.
Sal sobs as Johnny hugs him.
Johnny It's alright. Who's my little stinky monkey?
Sal (sniffles) I am. I am, Johnny.
Johnny Yeah. That's right. That's right. Thank you, Sal. It was very, very, very sweet of you.
Sal Aw, it was nothing, Johnny. Y'know, it was just that, when you couldn't sing with Tony, you looked –– you looked so pathetic and so pitiful, and I just thought--
Johnny Alright, okay, okay, thank you, Sal.
Tony Hey, it's so good to see you guys back together.
Sal Thanks, Tony.
Johnny It's because of you, Tony.
Sal Yeah.
Johnny Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Tony Bennett, huh!
Applause.
Sal Yeah. Yeah. You better clap!
Johnny Isn't he wonderful?
Sal Yeah. You all clap.
Switch to the nursing home.
Waldorf Thank goodness this show's almost over.
Statler So what happened to that blue freak on the missile?
BOOM! Gonzo and the missile land inches away from them.
Waldorf Whoa! Is he all right?
Statler I dunno. I'll check his pulse.
Waldorf If he's got one, I'll split it with you.
They chuckle. Gonzo gets up, dazed.
Gonzo Did I clear the chickens? (faints)
They chuckle.

Epilogue

After hours, Tony is trapped in the box. Beauregard glances at him.
Tony I'm the real Tony Bennett. You put the wrong guy in here, fellas! Come on, anybody! Get me out of here. Anybody.
Beauregard Boy. Sure is realistic.
He turns off the light and walks away as Tony tries to escape.
Tony Come on, let me out of here. Let me out.
The credits roll, with outtakes from "The Johnny Fiama Show" and Gonzo's stunt.
