The two Muppets who have cameos in nearly every Muppet production involving Kermit or Fozzie, Statler and Waldorf were named after two hotels of the same names in New York City. They are always there to add their witty commentary to what's going on, and are beloved by Muppet fans everywhere for their heckling. Below are a few of their heckles over the years:

Statler: This show is off to a fast start.
Waldorf: Good, maybe it'll end quicker!

Waldorf: There's something wrong with this TV!
Statler: What's that?
Waldorf: It's on!

Statler: Why do we need a VCR you can program seven years in advance?
Waldorf: So we don't miss any great shows that are on after we're dead.

Statler: There's a lot to be said about this program.
Waldorf: Too bad you can't say it on a family show!

Statler: That bit was breathtaking!
Waldorf: Careful, you may not have many left.
(both laugh)
Statler: Nurse! My medication! Get my nitro glycerine!

Clifford: Welcome to "Muppets Tonight!", the show that has people all over the country saying...
Both: Where's the remote!?

Waldorf: You know, they are calling this show a runaway hit.
Statler: Yeah, when ever it comes on, you wanna run away!

Statler: You know, this show really improves with age!
Waldorf: Why? Because the jokes get better?
Statler: No! Because my hearing gets worse!

Statler: That was quite a program! I would have only changed one thing!
Waldorf: What's that?
Statler: The channel!

Statler: What's the name of that famous song Tony Bennett sings?
Waldorf: "I Left My Heart In San Francisco."
Statler: Big deal! I left my teeth in Minneapolis!

Waldorf: Thank goodness this show is almost over.
Statler: So what happened to that blue freak on the missile? a large crash is heard
Waldorf: Woah! Is he all right?
Statler: I don't know, I'll check his pulse.
Waldorf: If he's got one, I'll split it with 'ya!

Statler: I've got an incredible discovery.
Waldorf: And what's that?
Statler: When you watch this show...
Both: ...it hurts!

Statler: And there you go, there's nothing like good comedy.
Waldorf: Nothing like it on this show!

Statler: Shakespeare would have hated that!
Waldorf: You should know, you dated his sister!
both laugh
Statler: Boy, was she ugly.

Statler: What would you do if you were a rich man?
Waldorf: I'd buy the network and cancel this show!
