For an English speaker to respond to an accusation of pretentiousness with the French word "moi," is, by its very nature, pretentious.

I think this originated with Miss Piggy.

I could see Miss P emoting that, with an offended look and a grand swish of her golden locks.

A petulant contributor to the Muppet Wiki, however, feels strongly that the phrase never left her porcine lips:

I do know that those two words were exclaimed by Sybil Fawlty to a customer, in the Fawlty Towers episode "The Psychiatrist":

According to Wikipedia:

  • Miss Piggy first appeared in 1974 -- not that I can confirm when, if ever, she uttered the line.
  • Fawlty Towers "The Psychiatrist" ran in Season 2, back in 1979.

If anyone can shed additional light, kindly share.
