Grover Talks To Himself
skit starring Grover (Frank Oz) and Grover and ...
Grover: Hello there! This your old pal, loveable, furry old Grover. Nobody else.
[Suddenly a sound like a guitar chord is heard, and an exact duplicate of Grover appears at the right of the screen, as well as a vertical line between them.]
Grover #1 [in a low voice to himself]: Hmm, I wonder who that could be? He looks strangely familiar. I will ask him.
[to the second Grover]: Pardon me, sir. I do not know how to say this, but ... um ... are you not me?
Grover #2: Yes indeed, I do believe I am you.
Grover #1: This is very confusing. Now there are two Grovers. One ...
Grover #2: ... and two!
[The chord is heard again, and a third Grover appears in the upper left corner, along with a line separating him from Grover #1, who stands directly below.]
Grover #1: Oh, boy.
Grover #3: Hello, everybodeeeee!
Grover #1: Now there are three Grovers! One ...
Grover #2: ... two ...
Grover #3: ... and three!
[The chord is heard again, and a fourth Grover appears in the upper right corner, directly above Grover #2.
A line has appeared between him and the second Grover. In short, each of them appears to be in a little box.]
Grover #1: I do not believe this!
Grover #2: Neither do I!
Grover #3: Nor I!
Grover #4: Believe it, believe it! I am here.
Grover #1: That is four Grovers! One...
Grover #2: ...two...
Grover #3: ...three...
Grover #4: ...and four!
Grover #1: Aaaaahhhh! All right, all right, you guys! Now, enough is enough. There are just too many of me.
Grover #4 [in a stiff, offended voice]: Well, if that is the way you feel about it, Grover.
[The chord plays, and he vanishes, along with the line separating him from Grover #2.]
Grover #1: Thank goodness! You know, you can have too much of a good thing.
One of me went away. And four take away one is three.
Grover #3: Excuse me, I think I hear our mommy calling me now. Bye-bye.
[The chord is heard again, and he vanishes, along with the line separating him from Grover #1.
Now only the first two Grovers are left, with a vertical line between them.]
Grover #1: Well, that is even better! Three take away one is two.
Grover #2: Yes.
Grover #1: Yes.
Grover #2: No.
Grover #1: No?
Grover #2: Excuse me, Iím getting tired of this. Bye-bye.
[The chord sounds, and the second Grover and the line disappear.]
Grover: At last! Two take away one is one.
[He gives a deep, happy sigh of immense relief.]
One again! And now at last there is only loveable, furry old Grover. Nobody else.
[The other three Grovers and their lines suddenly reappear in rapid succession, this time with a series of little beeps. They all wave at the first Grover.]
Grover #2: Bye-bye!
Grover #3: Bye-bye!
Grover #4: Adios, Grover!
[The three of them and their lines disappear, leaving the original Grover standing there in bewilderment.]
Grover: I am so confused ...
