-   It's true that 'Miss Piggy' (qv) and I have been a couple for a long time. In fact, we're the longest-running interspecies couple in Hollywood.

-   Always be happy. When people are in a bad mood, the last thing they want to do is hang around happy people.

-   Dreams are how we figure out where we want to go. Life is how we get there.

-   I have a dream too. But it's about singing and dancing and making people happy. That's the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with. And I found a whole bunch of people who have the same dream, and that kind of makes us like a family.

-   It doesn't matter if you're a frog or a pig or a bear or even a person. It doesn't matter if you're a big fish in a little pond or a small fish in a big pond - you're you and you matter.

-   [when confronted by Miss Piggy on _"The Jonathan Ross Show" (2011)_ (qv) with photos of Lady Gaga kissing Kermit at the MTV Video Music Awards] I'm not sure that's actually me. I think that's a turtle in a suit!

-   [favorite celebrities he's met] I loved meeting 'Roy Rogers (I)' (qv) and 'Dale Evans (I)' (qv), because they were from the kind of old school Hollywood days, very sweet people. 'Bob Hope (I)' (qv) was great, you know, all those people.

-   [on traveling, as a frog] Well, it can be tough. I've been doing a lot of travel promoting our movie. And, well, you might think I would be first class? I don't even make coach, I end up in cargo. Some things never change. I felt really bad about it, until I looked over in the next kennel, and there was 'Charlie Sheen' (qv)!

-   I am an Amphibian-American, and proud of it.

-   [on the most important acting advice he's ever received] 'Michael Caine (I)' (qv) taught me never to blink.

-   [on the acting role he most regretted not getting] Yeah, Yoda. That was a big one. Big miscalculation on my part. I didn't have the ears for it. It was very strange. I was the right color, wrong ears.

-   [on how he keeps his youthful appearance] I always chalk it up to good clean swamp living. I do yoga. I meditate. If you go into the swamp, you'll see frogs sitting on logs, just staring into the water. It's very relaxing. I can do that all day.
