The Movie: The Muppet Movie, 1979 (Jack Burns and Jerry Juhl, screenwriters; Jim Henson, dir.; music and lyrics by Paul Williams and Kenny Ascher)
Who says it: Jim Henson as Kermit the Frog
The context: This is the first line of the movie’s big finale, after the Muppets have made it to Hollywood and realized their dreams.
How to use it: Use your imagination.
From almost the first day of this theme, I knew that this quotation would end it.
Life’s like a movie,
Write your own ending
Keep believing, keep pretending
We did just what we set out to do –
Thanks to the lovers
