"While it was a defining moment for the character [Fozzie] , it nearly didn’t make it before the cameras. It had been written quickly— "We sent the material down on the floor just a few minutes before they were gonna tape it," recall Juhl —and taped toward the end of the day when Jim and Oz had little time to rehearse. After reading through it once, Jim and Oz put Kermit and Fozzie on their arms, and the complicated sketch in one remarkable take. "They just played the hell out of it," said Juhl admiringly, "and suddenly Fozzie was wonderful. I remember that moment and saying ‘Now there’s a character there!’” - Jim Henson: the Biography
mike did a good thing for once!
Just got back from the WIA Panel… I am going to write a very complex and detailed version of this tommorrow. Right now I am tired, and filled with so much ecxitement, I can’t believe either.
Something I really liked in “Giant Woman” was in the beginning when Garnet returned from wherever she was, Steven asked if she brought anything for him and she hands him a rock. Which is a very little kid-parent thing to do. And he’s SO excited about the rock. Its really cute.
But then after that, right before they leave, Steven gently places the rock on the floor and looks at it for a second before being content that its safe there, and then he runs off to join them. Its easy to overlook because it happens quickly and the viewer focus is likely on Pearl and Amethyst. But its too sweet to ignore.
The rock is important to Steven, its a gift from someone he loves and he appreciates it. He could’ve dropped it, or thrown it, when something more exciting like going on a mission came along, but he gently places it on the ground because its important to him. It’s not “just a rock.” Its really sweet and, I think, a nice subtle action that adds to Steven’s overall character.
"You pick up a job to buy a house, or raise kids or to… impress your dad. You work away your life and what does it get you?"
"Smiles in faces?"
"No. You get cash. Cash that can’t buy back what the job takes. Not if you rode every seahorse in the world."
