[describing how his puppets' personalities are reflections of his own]

Paul Berthalet:
I am Carrot Top: confident, clever, capable of running his life and yours, and everybody else's; and I'm Golo the Giant: cowardly, stupid, longing to be loved, clumsy and in need of comforting; and I'm Marguerite too: vain, jealous, obsessed with self, looking at my face in the mirror - are my teeth nice? Is my hair growing thin? And I'm Reynaldo: the thief, the opportunist, full of compromise and lies like any other man. I have in me all these things.

Transcript:
I am the puppets!
I'm Carrot Top: Confident, clever,
capable of running his life and yours
and everybody else's.
And I'm Golo the Giant:
Cowardly, stupid,
longing to be loved, clumsy,
and in need of comforting.
And I'm Marguerite, too:
Vain, jealous, obsessed with self,
looking at my face in the mirror.
Are my teeth nice?
Is my hair growing thin?
And I'm Reynardo
the thief, the opportunist,
full of compromise and lies.
Like any other man, I have in me
all these things,
all of these and
as many more again.
Must I make a new puppet
for the small part of me
you've managed to see?
The monster?
The angry man?
The frustrated dancer, clumping along
with a leg anchored to the ground,
and a heart anchored to...
but you don't have to understand me
or even like me.
This is business.
