"Anything You Can Do" is a duet in which both the performers brag about their abilities and claim to be able to do everything "better". It was originally written for a man and a woman in Annie Get Your Gun; that version was performed on Broadway by Ethel Merman. The song in this form can be considered a feminist anthem, with the woman challenging the man in abilities which include hunting, digging, bartering, drinking, and horseriding. The song has been performed by the Muppets on several occasions.

Sam and Friends

  • Kermit performed a parody of "Anything You Can Do" with prerecorded footage of himself on Sam and Friends. An excerpt of the revised lyrics follows:
Kermit 1: I can be on TV, where the people see me.
Kermit 2:I can be in person, and without rehearsin'.
Kermit 1: Lots of people know my face.
Kermit 2: That face there?
Kermit 1: Yes.
Kermit: I don't care."

The Muppet Show

  • performed by Ethel Merman and Miss Piggy on episode 122. An excerpt of "Anything You Can Do" is sung in the Ethel Merman medley, during which the two divas battle it out for the top spot. When Piggy claims "I can sing anything higher than you," Merman contests. But Piggy eventually hits a note so high and loud that Merman gives up, admitting "Yes, you can."
  • performed by Gonzo and Floyd Pepper, as rival knights in episode 305. An excerpt of the song was used during another medley, the Camelot sequence that served as the episode's closing number.

Worthy Deeds (Done Dirt Cheap)



"I see you are back for more, <name>. Don't get cocky. Just because you've vanquished some weaklings doesn't mean you're respected. Prove your worth to me and conquer the same creatures I have. Then maybe you'll earn a reputation... even a song."
Accept: "Anything you can do, I can do better."
Reject: "I hate show tunes."

Reward Dialogue

"Perhaps I misjudged you, human. Despite the odds, you've prevailed. But there is one more thing you must do. Seek me when you are ready to take the final step. I can hear your tune already...."


Cold as Ice


The first two bosses are located in Jaga Moraine, Avarr the Fallen is in the top left corner up a hill following a path of enemy bone minions and Whiteout is closer to the north and middle area up a circular hill surounded by Avalanches and Ice Elementals. You will find the Fragment of Antiquities is in the very north-west corner of the Sepulchre of Dragrimmar, Level 1. Be sure to obtain the actual quest for the dungeon as well (from the dwarf just outside it), or you won't be able to proceed past the first room.


  • Be careful when approaching Whiteout; a single large snowball will spawn at the top of hill and begin rolling towards you. Move your party out of the way to avoid the snowball, and then proceed to Whiteout.
  • Doing this quest together with Flames of the Bear Spirit makes it easier, since Egil Fireteller will join you.
  • The boss, Remnant of Antiquities, located on the second level of the dungeon does not count toward this quest.


  • "Anything You Can Do" is a song written by Irving Berlin used in the 1946 musical "Annie Get Your Gun". This song consists of two singers, one male and one female, attempting to out-do each other with increasingly complex things, its most notable lines being "Anything you can do I can do better; I can do anything better than you", which are referenced in the Accept/Reject options.
