BARRY Wow. That's amazing. Why do we do that? JOCK...that's pollen power, Kid. More pollen, more flowers, more nectar, more honey for us. BARRY Cool. The Jock WINKS at rejoins the other jocks in the sky. They swoop in over a pond, kissing the surface. We see their image reflected in the water; they're really moving. They fly over a fountain. BUZZ I'm picking up a lot of bright yellow, could be daisies. Don't we need th Copy that visual. We see what appear to be yellow ffowers on a green field. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 24. They go into a deep bank and dive. BUZZ Hold on, one of these flowers seems to be on the move. SPLITZ Say again...Are you flower? BUZZ Affirmative. SEQ. 900-"TENNIS GAME" The pollen jocks land. It is a tennis court with dozens of tennis balls. A COUPLE, VANESSA and KEN, plays tennis. The bees land right in the midst of a group of balls. KEN (0.C) That was other bees start walking around amongst the immense, yellow globes. SPLITZ This is the coolest, What is it? They stop at a BALL on a white line and look up at it. JACKSON I don't know, but I'm loving this color. SPLITZ (smelling tennis ball) Sc flower. But 1 like it JACKSON Yeah, fuzzy. BUZZ Chemical-y. JACKSON Careful, guys, it's a little grabby.

Each time it BOUNCES, the other bees cringe and GASP. ANGLE ON: Barry, terrified. Pure dumb luck, he's not getting squished. BARRY (with each bounce) Very close...Gonna Hurt...Mamma's little b out of position, rookie. ANGLE ON: Vanessa serving, We see Barry and the ball up against the racket as she brings it back. She tosses the ball into the air, Barry's eyes widen, The ball is STRUCK, and the rally is on, KEN Coming in at you the ball back. Barry feels the g-forces.

JACKSON I think he knows. BARRY (0.S) What is this?! Vanessa HITS a high arcing lob. Ken waits, poised for the retun. We see Barry having trouble maneuvering the ball from fatigue. KEN (overly confident) Match point! He has a killer look in his eyes. He's going to hit the ultimate overhead smash. KEN (CONTD) You can just start packing up Honey, because I believe you're about to eat it! ANGLE ON: Pollen Jocks. JACKSON Ahem! Ken is distracted He misses badly, The ball rockets into oblivion. Barry is still hanging on, ANGLE ON: Ken, berating himself, KEN (CONTD) Oh, you cannot be serious. We hear the ball WHISTLING, and Barry SCREAMING. "Bee Movie" JS REVISIC Yowser!!

He's going to sting me! The car SWERVES around the road. Barry flies into the back, where the slobbery dog SNAPS at gross, fying SPITTLE. MOTHER Nobody move. If you don't move, he won't sting you. Freeze! Everyone in the car freezes. Barry freezes. They stare at each other, eyes going back and forth, waiting to see who will make the bfinked!

Come To A Stop: Some or many of you may recall the 'Rainbow Math' post which calculates how many gs Rainbow Dash pulls while turning on a dime to save Rarity and the Wonderbolts in the episode Sonic Rainboom While not incorrect, the original post only accounts for vertical acceleration (against gravity) and not the horizontal: meaning she would just come to a stop. This means that her radial (turning) acceleration direction. The actual acceleration is just an average, externally viewed rate at which she changes speed is actually different and that the vertical acceleration is only a component thereof 3) g force is an acceleration relive to gravity (9.81 m/s 2), meaning all the acceleration that Dash actually FEELS during her insane turn is relative to gravity being the only force acting on her.
