Ron guest stars on "The Muppet Show." The scene opens with Ron Burgundy in a leather jacket sitting on some bleachers. He is surrounded by Fozzie, Gonzo, and Rizzo the Rat.
Hey, I wanna hear about what Ron did at the beach.
It was nothin'.
Sure, nothin' Burgundy. Right.
C'mon. Tell us about the girl.
Cut to a scene at a lunch table with Miss Piggy surrounded by Camilla, Olivia Newton-John, and Janice.
What did you do this summer, Miss Piggy?
I spent most of it at the beach. I met a human.
You went all the way to the beach for some human?
This human was special.
There ain't no such thing. I should know.
He was really romantic and he had a great mustache.
Cut back to Ron and the guys on the bleachers.
C'mon, man. Tell us.
Oh, boys, the snout on this girl. But you don't want to hear about that.
Are you kidding me?
Alright, I'll tell you.
They break into a rousing rendition of "Summer Love" replacing every "girl" with "pig" and every "boy" with "human." We pick up with the last verse. Ron and Miss Piggy have their backs to each other but are unaware of each other's presence. It's more for stage effect.
It turned colder, that's where it ends
So, I told her, we'd still be friends
Then we made, our true love vow
She was a pig, the size of a cow
Summer breeze between two species but, oh, those summer nights
Tell me more, tell me more
Ron and Miss Piggy look sad as the girls and guys look on. The screen fades to black.
