- '' Next time''?

What makes you think

there will be a next time?

If there isn't,

it will be a real short movie.

The only reason I hired you two jerks

was because your old man was my friend.

- Dad spoke well of you too.

- I'm as sentimental as the next guy.

That's why I don't want him

to hear this. You're fired.

- Take that thing off the ceiling.

- Yeah, but Mr. Tarkanian--

- Gonzo.

- Check.

Won't you listen to reason, sir?

I'm not listening to anything,

and I'm not giving you your job back.

I don't want you to give us anything.

We just want to go to England

and talk to Lady Holiday...

the woman who was robbed.

We'll catch those jewel thieves for you.

All you have to do

is pay our way to London.

Is that all I have to do?

We could use some new luggage

for the trip.

Luggage? Look, beat it.

I have a deadline to meet.

- But how will we get to London?

- I'll tell you what, Fozzie.

Since you're such an investigative

reporter, you figure it out.

I'm Fozzie.

Oh, yeah, the hat.

Stop the presses!

Why? What happened?

I don't know.

I've always wanted to say that.

Boy, it must be 50 below in here.

You're lucky.

You have fur.

No, you're the one with the fur.

Turn on your light and see for yourself.

Oh, yeah.

I keep mixing us up.

I think I'll read for a while.

I wish I had a book.

Can you reach the call button?

- I'm hungry.

- They don't serve food in ninth class.

What? Twelve dollars,

and you don't even get a meal?

Could you guys keep it down?

I'm trying to watch the movie.

- Somebody's coming.

- Maybe they're bringing hamburgers.

- All out for England.

- Great. The plane is landing.

The plane?

No, the plane lands in Italy.

- You land in England.

- What?

What's happening?


For once the forecast was right.
