Kermit is a bit on edge whenever his current girlfriend, Denise, and his ex-lady love, Miss Piggy are in close proximity. He doesn’t want worlds to collide. But collide they do. Denise can’t help but introduce herself to Up Late guest Kristin Chenoweth while she’s chatting with Piggy. Kermit eventually shuffles his rambling girlfriend away, but the damage has been done.

With Denise’s birthday coming up fast, Kermit is on the hunt for the perfect gift. Every suggestion he fields from the staff is less-than-ideal. Kermit ends up at Color Me Mine where he hopes to create a truly personal present. Scooter offers some constructive criticism on all artistic decisions.

Kermit rattles off some of Denise’s likes. They include Georgia Bulldogs football, black and white photography and putting ketchup on just about everything. It’s off to the mall! Then it’s not. Kermit has an important meeting with the head of the network. No problem. Piggy offers to pick up the gift for him.

In reality, she made sure the box plays “You Are the Sunshine of My Life,” which happens to be her song with Kermit. That’s what you get when you ask your ex to buy a gift for your new pig.
