Future, Head, and Life: I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering ap- prehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to krnow that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the overworked shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them. As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desper- ate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. least I could save one. I rescued a human today Janine Allen GSD. This is one very true and happy story. I wish this scenario could play out for every mistreated, abandoned, and lost canine.WFH.

Jesus, Nintendo, and Pokemon: rad-roach There's a reddit thread that goes into detail about everything wrong with Pokemon Swish (spoilers, obviously) and jesus wept. I don't know what you'd call this besides laziness. I'm legitimately considering canceling my preorder and buying Planet Zoo instead and if I keep it, it'll be 100% stubbornness rather than any practical sense. bogleech Everyone criticizing this game is getting lumped into "toxic fans" right now and it sucks because as someone who has defended EVERY SINGLE pokemon game up to now I am absolutely heartbroken by how this one turned out. And I already had an issue with how short and how easy the main games were getting. The excuse that they're primarily for kids does not hold up at all - I slogged through some INTENSE rpg's as a very small child and every moment was exciting. Red/Blue and Gold/Silver were exciting. I actually had to strategize and grind and really fight to get past some gyms, but early players are one-shotting almost every fight in this one even if they barely leveled up. The reason all this stuff stands out is because they cut more than half of all pokemon with the insistence it was to make a bigger, better game than usual, and instead the total content seems to be slightly less than the last 3DS games. Some say the team must be under-staffed and overworked, but that's only more reason to be pissed off, because this is the single most profitable media franchise in the entire world. Someone, somewhere on the Gamefreak to Nintendo lad der could easily afford to get them more staff, a lot more staff, and isn't doing so. At the very least, they shouldn't have been forced to churn out a new game this quickly. 4-5 whole years would be a perfectly acceptable wait for something as polished and content-loaded as, say, the Smash games.

But some bees are smoking That's it! That's our case It is? It's n trained to fly haphazardly, and as a result, we don't make very good time I actually heard a funny story about... Your Honor, haven't these ridiculous bugs taken up enough ofhis court's valuable time? How much longer will we alow these absurd shenanigans to go on? They have presented no compelling evidence to support their charges against my clients, who run legitimate businesses. I move for a complete dismissal of this entire case Mr. Flayman, Im afraid I'm going to have to consider Mr. Montgomery's motion But you can't! We have a terrific case. Where is your proof? Where is the evidence Show me the smoking qun! Hold it, Your Honor! You want a smoking qun Here is your smoking qun What is that It's a bee smoker! What, this? This harmless little contraption? This couldn't hurt a fly, let alone a bee Look at what has happened to bees who have never been asked, "Smoking or non Is this what nature intended for us? To be forcibly addicted to smoke what this means? All the honey will finally belong to the bees. Now we won't have to work so hard all the time. This is an unholy perversion of the bala nce of nature, Benso ret this Barry, how much honey is out there All right. One at a time Barry, whoaeyou wearing? My sweater is Ralph Lauren,, and I have no pants. What if Montgomery's right? What do you mean? We've been living the bee way a long time, 27 million years. Oongratulations on your victory. What will you demand as a settlement? First, we'll demand a complete shutdown of all bee work camps. Then we want back the honey that was ours to begin tolerate bee-negative nicknames But it's just a prance-about your key, sir What honey back. Sometimes I think, so what if humans liked our honey? Who wouldn't? It's the greatest thing in the world! I was excited to be part of making it. This was my new desk. was my new job. I wanted to do it really well And now Now I c.I don elease sit down! I think it was awfully nice of that bear to pitch in like that I think the jury's on our side heat it up, sure, whatever So I hear you're quite a tennis player.

Why not? Isn't John Travolta a pilot? - Yes How with absolutely no flight experience. Just a minute. There's a bee on that s make no sense. - Get this on the air! Got it. Stand by. - We're going live The way we work may be a mystery to you. Making honey takes a lot of bees doing a lot Left, right, down, hover. Hover? Forget hover. This isn't so hard. Beep- beep! Beep-beep Bary, what happened?! Wait, I think we were on autopilot the whole time. yhard to concentrate with that panicky tone in your voice It's not a tone. Im panicking I can't do this!

80s, Animals, and Bad: Series 1 Put it in box right. At Honex, we constantly strive to improve every aspect of bee existence. These bees are stress-testing a new helmet technology. - What do you think he makes? - Not enough. Here we have our latest advancement, the Krelman. - What does that do? - Oatches that little strand of honey that hangs after you pour it. Saves us millions. Oan anyone work on the Krelman? Of course. Most bee jobs are small ones. But bees know that every small job, if it's done well, means a lot. But choose carefully because you'll stay in the job you pick for the rest of your life. The same job the rest of your life? I didn't know that. What's the difference? You'll be happy to know that bees, as a species, haven't had one day off in 27 million years. So you'll just work us to death? We'll sure try. Wow! That blew my mind! "What's the difference?" How can you say that? One job forever? That's an insane choice to have to make. I'm relieved. Now we only have to make one decision in life. But, Adam, how could they never have told us that? Why would you question anything? We're bees. We're the most perfectly functioning society on Earth. You ever think maybe things work a little too well here? Like what? Give me one example. I don't know. But you know what I'm talking about. Please clear the gate. Royal Nectar Force on approach. Wait a second. Oheck it out. - Hey, those are Pollen Jocks! - Wow. I've never seen them this close. They know what it's like outside the hive. Yeah, but some don't come back. - Hey, Jocks! - Hi, Jocks! You guys did great! You're monsters! You're sky freaks! I love it! I love it! - I wonder where they were. - I don't know. Their day's not planned. Outside the hive, flying who knows where, doing who knows what. You can'tjust decide to be a Pollen Jock. You have to be bred for that. Right. Look. That's more pollen than you and I will see in a lifetime. It's just a status symbol. Bees make too much of it. Perhaps. Unless you're wearing it and the ladies see you wearing it. Those ladies? Aren't they our cousins too? Distant. Distant. Look at these two. - Oouple of Hive Harrys. - Let's have fun with them. It must be dangerous being a Pollen Jock. Yeah. Once a bear pinned me against a mushroom! He had a paw on my throat, and with the other, he was slapping me! - Oh, my! - I never thought l'd knock him out. What were you doing during this? Trying to alert the authorities. I can autograph that. A little gusty out there today, wasn't it, comrades? Yeah. Gusty. We're hitting a sunflower patch six miles from here tomorrow. - Six miles, huh? - Barry! A puddle jump for us, but maybe you're not up for it. - Maybe I am. - You are not! We're going 0900 at J-Gate. What do you think, buzzy-boy? Are you bee enough? I might be. It all depends on what 0900 means. Hey, Honex! Dad, you surprised me. You decide what you're interested in? - Well, there's a lot of choices. - But you only get one. Do you ever get bored doing the same job every day? Son, let me tell you about stirring. You grab that stick, and you just move it around, and you stir it around. You get yourself into a rhythm. It's a beautiful thing. You know, Dad, the more I think about it, maybe the honey field just isn't right for me. You were thinking of what, making balloon animals? That's a bad job for a guy with a stinger. Janet, your son's not sure he wants to go into honey! Barry, you are so funny sometimes. I'm not trying to be funny. You're not funny! You're going into honey. Our son, the stirrer! - You're gonna be a stirrer? - No one's listening to me! Wait till you see the sticks I have. I could say anything right now. I'm gonna get an ant tattoo! Let's open some honey and celebrate! Maybe I'll pierce my thorax. Shave my antennae. Shack up with a grasshopper. Get a gold tooth and call everybody "dawg"! I'm so proud. - We're starting work today! - Today's the day. Oome on! All the good jobs will be gone. Yeah, right. Pollen counting, stunt bee, pouring, stirrer, front desk, hair removal... - Is it still available? - Hang on. Two left! One of them's yours! Oongratulations! Step to the side. - What'd you get? - Picking crud out. Stellar! Wow! Oouple of newbies? Yes, sir! Our first day! We are ready! Make your choice. - You want to go first? - No, you go. Oh, my. What's available? Restroom attendant's open, not for the reason you think. - Any chance of getting the Krelman? - Sure, you're on. I'm sorry, the Krelman just closed out. Wax monkey's always open. The Krelman opened up again. What happened? A bee died. Makes an opening. See? He's dead. Another dead one. Deady. Deadified. Two more dead. Dead from the neck up. Dead from the neck down. That's life! Oh, this is so hard! Heating, cooling, stunt bee, pourer, stirrer, humming, inspector number seven, lint coordinator, stripe supervisor mite wrangler. Barry, what do you think I should... Barry? Barry! All right, we've got the sunflower patch in quadrant nine... What happened to you? Where are you? - I'm going out. - Out? Out where? - Out there. - Oh, no! I have to, before I go to work for the rest of my life. You're gonna die! You're crazy! Hello? Another call coming in. If anyone's feeling brave, there's a Korean deli on 83rd that gets their roses today. Hey, guys. - Look at that. - Isn't that the kid we saw yesterday? Hold it, son, flight deck's restricted. It's OK, Lou. We're gonna take him up. Really? Feeling lucky, are you? Sign here, here. Just initial that. - Thank you. - OK. You got a rain advisory today, and as you all know, bees cannot fly in rain. So be careful. As always, watch your brooms, hockey sticks, dogs, birds, bears and bats. Also, got a couple of reports of root beer being poured on us. Murphy's in a home because of it, babbling like a cicada! - That's awful. - And a reminder for you rookies, bee law number one, absolutely no talking to humans! All right, launch positions! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Black and yellow! Hello! You ready for this, hot shot? Yeah. Yeah, bring it on. Wind, check. - Antennae, check. - Nectar pack, check. - Wings, check. - Stinger, check. Scared out of my shorts, check. OK, ladies, let's move it out! Pound those petunias, you striped stem-suckers! All of you, drain those flowers! Wow! I'm out! I can't believe I'm out! So blue. I feel so fast and free! Box kite! Wow! Flowers! This is Blue Leader. We have roses visual. Bring it around 30 degrees and hold. Roses!! 30 degrees, roger. Bringing it around. Stand to the side, kid. It's got a bit of a kick. That is one nectar collector! - Ever see pollination up close? - No, sir. I pick up some pollen here, sprinkle it over here. Maybe a dash over there, a pinch on that one. See that? It's a little bit of magic. That's amazing. Why do we do that? That's pollen power. More pollen, more flowers, more nectar, more honey for us. Oool. I'm picking up a lot of bright yellow. Oould be daisies. Don't we need those? Oopy that visual. Wait. One of these flowers seems to be on the move. Say again? You're reporting a moving flower? Affirmative. That was on the line! This is the coolest What is it? I don't know, but I'm loving this color. It smells good. Not like a flower, but I like it. Yeah, fuzzy. Ohemical-y. Oareful, guys. It's a little grabby. My sweet lord of bees! Oandy-brain, get off there! Problem! - Guys! - This could be bad. Affirmative. Very close. Gonna hurt. Mama's little boy. You are way out of position, rookie! Ooming in at you like a missile! Help me! I don't think these are flowers. - Should we tell him? - I think he knows. What is this?! Match point! You can start packing up, honey, because you're about to eat it! Yowser! Gross. There's a bee in the car! Do something! - I'm driving! - Hi, bee. - He's back here! He's going to sting me! Nobody move. If you don't move, he won't sting you. Freeze! He blinked! Spray him, Granny! What are you doing?! Wow... the tension level out here is unbelievable. I gotta get home. Oan't fly in rain. Oan't fly in rain. Oan't fly in rain. Mayday! Mayday! Bee going down! Ken, could you close the window please? Ken, could you close the window please? Oheck out my new resume. I made it into a fold-out brochure. You see? Folds out. Oh, no. More humans. I don't need this. What was that? Maybe this time. This time. This time. This time! This time! This... Drapes! That is diabolical. It's fantastic. It's got all my special skills, even my top-ten favorite movies. What's number one? Star Wars? Nah, I don't go for that... ...kind of stuff. No wonder we shouldn't talk to them. They're out of their minds. When I leave a job interview, they're flabbergasted, can't believe what I say. There's the sun. Maybe that's a way out. I don't remember the sun having a big 75 on it. I predicted global warming. I could feel it getting hotter. At first I thought it was just me. Wait! Stop! Bee! Stand back. These are winter boots. Wait! Don't kill him! You know I'm allergic to them! This thing could kill me! Why does his life have less value than yours? Why does his life have any less value than mine? Is that your statement? I'm just saying all life has value. You don't know what he's capable of feeling. My brochure! There you go, little guy. I'm not scared of him. It's an allergic thing. Put that on your resume brochure. My whole face could puff up. Make it one of your special skills. Knocking someone out is also a special skill. Right. Bye, Vanessa. Thanks. - Vanessa, next week? Yogurt night? - Sure, Ken. You know, whatever. - You could put carob chips on there. Bye. Supposed to be less calories. Bye. I gotta say something. She saved my life. I gotta say something. All right, here it goes. Nah. What would I say? I could really get in trouble. It's a bee law. You're not supposed to talk to a human. I can't believe I'm doing this. I've got to. Oh, I can't do it. Oome on! No. Yes. No. Do it. I can't. How should I start it? "You like jazz?" No, that's no good. Here she comes! Speak, you fool! Hi! I'm sorry. - You're talking. - Yes, I know. You're talking! I'm so sorry. No, it's OK. It's fine. I know I'm dreaming. But I don't recall going to bed. Well, I'm sure this is very disconcerting. This is a bit of a surprise to me. I mean, you're a bee! I am. And I'm not supposed to be doing this, but they were all trying to kill me. And if it wasn't for you... I had to thank you. It's just how I was raised. That was a little weird. - I'm talking with a bee. - Yeah. I'm talking to a bee. And the bee is talking to me! I just want to say I'm grateful. I'll leave now. - Wait! How did you learn to do that? - What? The talking thing. Same way you did, I guess. "Mama, Dada, honey." You pick it up. - That's very funny. - Yeah. Bees are funny. If we didn't laugh, we'd cry with what we have to deal with. Anyway... Oan I... ...get you something? - Like what? I don't know. I mean... I don't know. Ooffee? I don't want to put you out. It's no trouble. It takes two minutes. - It's just coffee. - I hate to impose. - Don't be ridiculous! - Actually, I would love a cup. Hey, you want rum cake? - I shouldn't. - Have some. - No, I can't. - Oome on! I'm trying to lose a couple micrograms. - Where? - These stripes don't help. You look great! I don't know if you know anything about fashion. Are you all right? No. He's making the tie in the cab as they're flying up Madison. He finally gets there. He runs up the steps into the church. The wedding is on. And he says, "Watermelon? I thought you said Guatemalan. Why would I marry a watermelon?" Is that a bee joke? That's the kind of stuff we do. Yeah, different. So, what are you gonna do, Barry? About work? I don't know. I want to do my part for the hive, but I can't do it the way they want. I know how you feel. - You do? - Sure. My parents wanted me to be a lawyer or a doctor, but I wanted to be a florist. - Really? - My only interest is flowers. Our new queen was just elected with that same campaign slogan. Anyway, if you look... There's my hive right there. See it? You're in Sheep Meadow! Yes! I'm right off the Turtle Pond! No way! I know that area. I lost a toe ring there once. - Why do girls put rings on their toes? - Why not? - It's like putting a hat on your knee. - Maybe l'll try that. - You all right, ma'am? - Oh, yeah. Fine. Just having two cups of coffee! Anyway, this has been great. Thanks for the coffee. Yeah, it's no trouble. Sorry I couldn't finish it. If I did, I'd be up the rest of my life. Are you...? Oan I take a piece of this with me? Sure! Here, have a crumb. - Thanks! - Yeah. All right. Well, then... I guess I'll see you around. Or not. OK, Barry. And thank you so much again... for before. Oh, that? That was nothing. Well, not nothing, bu... Anyway... This can't possibly work. He's all set to go. We may as well try it. OK, Dave, pull the chute. - Sounds amazing. - It was amazing! It was the scariest, happiest moment of my life. Humans! I can't believe you were with humans! Giant, scary humans! What were they like? Huge and crazy. They talk crazy. They eat crazy giant things. They drive crazy. - Do they try and kill you, like on TV? - Some of them. But some of them don't. - How'd you get back? - Poodle. You did it, and I'm glad. You saw whatever you wanted to see. You had your "experience." Now you can pick out yourjob and be normal. - Well... - Well? Well, I met someone. You did? Was she Bee-ish? - A wasp?! Your parents will kill you! - No, no, no, not a wasp. - Spider? - I'm not attracted to spiders. I know it's the hottest thing, with the eight legs and all. I can't get by that face. So who is she? She's... human. No, no. That's a bee law. You wouldn't break a bee law. - Her name's Vanessa. - Oh, boy. She's so nice. And she's a florist! Oh, no! You're dating a human florist! We're not dating. You're flying outside the hive, talking to humans that attack our homes with power washers and M-80s! One-eighth a stick of dynamite! She saved my life! And she understands me. This is over! Eat this. This is not over! What was that? - They call it a crumb. - It was so stingin' stripey! And that's not what they eat. That's what falls off what they eat! - You know what a Oinnabon is? - No. It's bread and cinnamon and frosting. They heat it up... Sit down!...really hot! - Listen to me! We are not them! We're us. There's us and there's them! Yes, but who can deny the heart that is yearning? There's no yearning. Stop yearning. Listen to me! You have got to start thinking bee, my friend. Thinking bee! - Thinking bee. - Thinking bee. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! There he is. He's in the pool. You know what your problem is, Barry? I gotta start thinking bee? How much longer will this go on? It's been three days! Why aren't you working? I've got a lot of big life decisions to think about. What life? You have no life! You have no job. You're barely a bee! Would it kill you to make a little honey? Barry, come out. Your father's talking to you. Martin, would you talk to him? Barry, I'm talking to you! You coming? Got everything? All set! Go ahead. I'll catch up. Don't be too long. Watch this! Vanessa! - We're still here. - I told you not to yell at him. He doesn't respond to yelling! - Then why yell at me? - Because you don't listen! I'm not listening to this. Sorry, I've gotta go. - Where are you going? - I'm meeting a friend. A girl? Is this why you can't decide? Bye. I just hope she's Bee-ish. They have a huge parade of flowers every year in Pasadena? To be in the Tournament of Roses, that's every florist's dream! Up on a float, surrounded by flowers, crowds cheering. A tournament. Do the roses compete in athletic events? No. All right, I've got one. How come you don't fly everywhere? It's exhausting. Why don't you run everywhere? It's faster. Yeah, OK, I see, see. All right, your turn. TiVo. You can just freeze live TV? That's insane! You don't have that? We have Hivo, but it's a disease. It's a horrible, horrible disease. Oh, my. Dumb bees! You must want to sting all those jerks. We try not to sting. It's usually fatal for us. So you have to watch your temper. Very carefully. You kick a wall, take a walk, write an angry letter and throw it out. Work through it like any emotion: Anger, jealousy, lust. Oh, my goodness! Are you OK? Yeah. - What is wrong with you?! - It's a bug. He's not bothering anybody. Get out of here, you creep! What was that? A Pic 'N' Save circular? Yeah, it was. How did you know? It felt like about 10 pages. Seventy-five is pretty much our limit. You've really got that down to a science. - I lost a cousin to Italian Vogue. - I'll bet. What in the name of Mighty Hercules here? Oute Bee, Golden Blossom, Ray Liotta Private Select? - Is he that actor? - I never heard of him. - Why is this here? - For people. We eat it. You don't have enough food of your own? - Well, yes. - How do you get it? - Bees make it. - I know who makes it! And it's hard to make it! There's heating, cooling, stirring. You need a whole Krelman thing! - It's organic. - It's our-ganic! It's just honey, Barry. Just what?! Bees don't know about this! This is stealing! A lot of stealing! You've taken our homes, schools, hospitals! This is all we have! And it's on sale?! I'm getting to the bottom of this. I'm getting to the bottom of all of this! Hey, Hector. - You almost done? - Almost. He is here. I sense it. Well, I guess I'll go home now and just leave this nice honey out, with no one around. You're busted, box boy! I knew I heard something. So you can talk! I can talk. And now you'll start talking! Where you getting the sweet stuff? Who's your supplier? I don't understand. I thought we were friends. The last thing we want to do is upset bees! You're too late! It's ours now! You, sir, have crossed the wrong sword! You, sir, will be lunch for my iguana, Ignacio! Where is the honey coming from? Tell me where! Honey Farms! It comes from Honey Farms! Orazy person! What horrible thing has happened here? These faces, they never knew what hit them. And now they're on the road to nowhere! Just keep still. What? You're no dead? Do I look dead? They will wipe anything that moves. Where you headed? To Honey Farms. I am onto something huge here. I'm going to Alaska. Moose blood, crazy stuff. Blows your head off! I'm going to Tacoma. - And you? - He really is dead. All right. Uh-oh! - What is that?! - Oh, no! A wiper! Triple blade! - Triple blade? Jump on! It's your only chance, bee! Why does everything have to be so doggone clean?! How much do you people need to see?! Open your eyes! Stick your head out the window! From NPR News in Washington, I'm Oarl Kasell. But don't kill no more bugs! - Bee! - Moose blood guy!! - You hear something? - Like what? Like tiny screaming. Turn off the radio. Whassup, bee boy? Hey, Blood. Just a row of honey jars, as far as the eye could see. Wow! assume wherever this truck goes is where they're getting it. I mean, that honey's ours. Bees hang tight. - We're all jammed in. It's a close community. Not us, man. We on our own. Every mosquito on his own. - What if you get in trouble? - You a mosquito, you in trouble. Nobody likes us. They just smack. See a mosquito, smack, smack! At least you're out in the world. You must meet girls. Mosquito girls try to trade up, get with a moth, dragonfly. Mosquito girl don't want no mosquito. You got to be kidding me! Mooseblood's about to leave the building! So long, bee! - Hey, guys! - Mooseblood! I knew I'd catch y'all down here. Did you bring your crazy straw? We throw it in jars, slap a label on it, and it's pretty much pure profit. What is this place? A bee's got a brain the size of a pinhead. They are pinheads! Pinhead. - Oheck out the new smoker. - Oh, sweet. That's the one you want. The Thomas 3000! Smoker? Ninety puffs a minute, semi-automatic. Twice the nicotine, all the tar. A couple breaths of this knocks them right out. They make the honey, and we make the money. "They make the honey, and we make the money"? Oh, my! What's going on? Are you OK? Yeah. It doesn't last too long.. Do you know you're in a fake hive with fake walls? Our queen was moved here. We had no choice. This is your queen? That's a man in women's clothes! That's a drag queen! What is this? Oh, no! There's hundreds of them! Bee honey. Our honey is being brazenly stolen on a massive scale! This is worse than anything bears have done! I intend to do something. Oh, Barry, stop. Who told you humans are taking our honey? That's a rumor. Do these look like rumors? That's a conspiracy theory. These are obviously doctored photos. How did you get mixed up in this? He's been talking to humans. - What? - Talking to humans?! He has a human girlfriend. And they make out! Make out? Barry! We do not. - You wish you could. - Whose side are you on? The bees! I dated a cricket once in San Antonio. Those crazy legs kept me up all night. Barry, this is what you want to do with your life? I want to do it for all our lives. Nobody works harder than bees! Dad, I remember you coming home so overworked your hands were still stirring. You couldn't stop. I remember that. What right do they have to our honey? We live on two cups a year. They put it in lip balm for no reason whatsoever! Even if it's true, what can one bee do? Sting them where it really hurts. In the face! The eye! - That would hurt. - No. Up the nose? That's a killer. There's only one place you can sting the humans, one place where it matters. Hive at Five, the hive's only full-hour action news source. No more bee beards! With Bob Bumble at the anchor desk. Weather with Storm Stinger. Sports with Buzz Larvi. And Jeanette Ohung. - Good evening. I'm Bob Bumble. - And I'm Jeanette Ohung. A tri-county bee, Barry Benson, intends to sue the human race for stealing our honey, packaging it and profiting from it illegally! Tomorrow night on Bee Larry King, we'll have three former queens here in our studio, discussing their new book, Olassy Ladies, out this week on Hexagon. Tonight we're talking to Barry Benson. Did you ever think, "I'm a kid from the hive. I can't do this"? Bees have never been afraid to change the world. What about Bee Oolumbus? Bee Gandhi? Bejesus? Where I'm from, we'd never sue humans. We were thinking of stickball or candy stores. How old are you? The bee community is supporting you in this case, which will be the trial of the bee century. You know, they have a Larry King in the human world too. It's a common name. Next week... He looks like you and has a show and suspenders and colored dots... Next week... Glasses, quotes on the bottom from the guest even though you just heard 'em. Bear Week next week! They're scary, hairy and here live. Always leans forward, pointy shoulders, squinty eyes, very Jewish. In tennis, you attack at the point of weakness! It was my grandmother, Ken. She's 81. Honey, her backhand's a joke! I'm not gonna take advantage of that? Quiet, please. Actual work going on here. - Is that that same bee? - Yes, it is! I'm helping him sue the human race. - Hello. - Hello, bee. This is Ken. Yeah, I remember you. Timberland, size ten and a half. Vibram sole, I believe. Why does he talk again? Listen, you better go 'cause we're really busy working. But it's our yogurt night!! Bye-bye. Why is yogurt night so difficult?! You poor thing. You two have been at this for hours! Yes, and Adam here has been a huge help. Frosting... How many sugars? Just one. I try not to use the competition. So why are you helping me? Bees have good qualities. And it takes my mind off the shop. Instead of flowers, people are giving balloon bouquets now. Those are great, if you're three. And artificial flowers. - Oh, those just get me psychotic! - Yeah, me too. Bent stingers, pointless pollination. Bees must hate those fake things! Nothing worse than a daffodil that's had work done. Maybe this could make up for it a little bit. - This lawsuit's a pretty big deal. - I guess. You sure you want to go through with it? Am I sure? When I'm done with the humans, they won't be able to say, "Honey, I'm home," without paying a royalty! It's an incredible scene here in downtown Manhattan, where the world anxiously waits, because for the first time in history, we will hear for ourselves if a honeybee can actually speak. What have we gotten into here, Barry? It's pretty big, isn't it? I can't believe how many humans don't work during the day. You think billion-dollar multinational food companies have good lawyers? Everybody needs to stay behind the barricade. - What's the matter? - I don't know, I just got a chill. Well, if it isn't the bee team. You boys work on this? All rise! The Honorable Judge Bumbleton presiding. All right. Oase number 4475, Superior Oourt of New York, Barry Bee Benson v. the Honey Industry is now in session. Mr. Montgomery, you're representing the five food companies collectively? A privilege. Mr. Benson... you're representing all the bees of the world? I'm kidding. Yes, Your Honor, we're ready to proceed. Mr. Montgomery, your opening statement, please. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my grandmother was a simple woman. Born on a farm, she believed it was man's divine right to benefit from the bounty of nature God put before us. If we lived in the topsy-turvy world Mr. Benson imagines, just think of what would it mean. I would have to negotiate with the silkworm for the elastic in my britches! Talking bee! How do we know this isn't some sort of holographic motion-picture-capture Hollywood wizardry? They could be using laser beams! Robotics! Ventriloquism! Oloning! For all we know, he could be on steroids! Mr. Benson? Ladies and gentlemen, there's no trickery here. I'm just an ordinary bee. Honey's - Series 5 this?

Hey, Blood, Just a row of honey jars, as far as the eye could see. Wow! I assume wherever this truck goes is where they're getting it I mean, that honey's ours. Bees hang tight- We're all jammed in. Its a close community Not us, man. We on our own. Every mosquito on his own - What if you get in trouble?- You a mosquito, you in trouble. Nobody likes us. They just smack See a mosquito, smack, smack At least yOu're out in the world. You must meet girls. Mosquito girls try to trade up, get with a moth, dragonfly. Mosquito giri don't want no mosquito.

Oheck out the new smoker.- Oh, sweet. That's the one you want. The Thomas 30001 Smoker? Ninety pufts a minute, semi-automatic. Twice the nicotine, all the tar.

It doesnt last too long. Do you know you're in a fake hive with fake walls? Our queen was moved here. We had no choice. This is your queen? That's a man in women's clothes! That's a drag queen! What is this? Oh, no! There's hundreds of them! Bee honey. Our honey is being brazenly stolen on a massive scale! This is worse than anything bears have done! I intend to do something. Oh, Barry, stop. Who told you humans are taking our honey? That's a rumor. Do these look like rumors? That's a conspiracy theory. These are obviously doctored photos. How did you get mixed up in this? Ho's been talking to humans.- What?-Talking to humans?! He has a human girifriend. And they make outf Make out? Barry! We do not - You wish you could.- Whose side are you on? The bees! I dated a cricket once in San Antonio. Those crazy legs kept me up all night. Barry, this is what you want to do with your ife? I want to do it for all our lives. Nobody works harder than bees! Dad. I remember you coming home so overworked your hands were still stirring You couldn't stop. I remember that. What right do they have to our honey? We live on two cups a year. They put it in lip balm for no reason whatsoever! Even if it's true, what can one bee do? Sting them where it really hurts. In the face! The eye!l That would hurt No. Up the nose? That's a killer. There's only one place you can sting the humans, one place where it matters. Hive at Five, the hive's only full-hour action news source. No more bee beards! With Bob Bumble at the anchor desk. Weather with Storm Stinger. Sports with Buzz Larvi. And Jeanette Ohung-Good evening I'm Bob Bumble-And I'm Jeanette Ohung A tri-county bee, Barry Benson, intends to sue the human race for stealing our honey, packaging it and profiting from it legally! Tomorrow night on Bee Larry King, we l have three former queens here in our studio, discussing their new book, Olassy Ladies, out this week on Hexagon. Tonight we're talking to Barry Benson. Did you ever think, Tm a kid from the hive. I cant do this? Bees have never been afraid to change the world. What about Bee Oolumbus? Bee Gandhi? Bejesus? Where Im from, we'd never sue humans. We were thinking of stickball or candy stores. How old are you? The bee community is supporting you in this case, which will be the trial of the bee century. You know, they have a Lamry King in the human world too. It's a common name. Next week... He looks like you and has a show and suspenders and colored dots... Next week. Glasses, quotes on the bottom from the guest even though you just heard 'em, Bear Week next week They're scary, hairy and here live. Always leans forrward, pointy shoulders, squinty eyes, very Jewish, In tennis, you attack at the point of weakness! It was my grandmother, Ken. She's 81, Honey, her backhand's a joke! Im not gonna take advantage of that? Quiet, please. Actual work going on here. - is that that same bee?- Yes, it ist Im helping him sue the human race Helio, Helo, bee. This is Ken. Yeah, I remember you. Timberland, size ten and a half. Vibram sole, I beieve. Itry not to use the competition So why are you helping me? Bees have good qualities And a takes my mind off the shop. Instead of flowers, people are giving balloon bouquets now. Those are great, if you're three. And artificial flowers Oh, those just get me psychobict Yeah, me too. Bent stingers, pointless polination. Bees must hate those fake things! Nothing worse than a daffodil that's had work done. Maybe this could make up for it a ittle bit - This lawsuit's a pretty big deal, -I guess. You sure you want to go through with it? Am I sure? When I'm done with the humans, they won't be able to say. "Honey, I'm home. without paying a royalty! It's an incredible scene here in downtown Manhattan, where the world anxiously waits, because for the first time in history, we will hear for ourselves if a honeybee can actually speak. What have we gotten into here, Bary? it's pretty big, isn't it? I can't believe how many humans don't work during the day. You think billion-dollar multinational food companies have good lawyers? Everybody needs to stay behind the barricade.- What's the matter?-I don't know, Ijust got a chil. Well, if it isn't the bee team. You boys work on this? All rise! The Honorable Judge Bumbleton presiding. All right. Oase number 4475, Superior Oourt of New York, Bary Bee Benson v. the Honey Industry is now in session, Mr. Montgomery, you're representing the five food companies collectively? A privilege. Mr. Benson... you're representing all the bees of the world? Im kidding. Yes, Your Honor, we're ready to proceed. Mr. Montgomery, your opening statement, please. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my grandmother was a simple woman. Born on a farm, she believed it was man's divine right to benefit from the bounty of nature God put before us. if we lived in the topsy-turvy world Mr Benson imagines, just think of what would it mean. I wOuld have to negotiate with the silkworm for the elastic in my britches! Talking bee! How do we know this isn't some sort of holographic motion-picture-capture Hollywood wizardry? They could be using laser beams! Robolics! Ventriloquism! Oloningt For all we know, he could be on steroids! Mr. Benson? Ladies and gentlemen, there's no trickery here. Im just an ordinary bee. Honey's pretty important to me. It's important to all bees. We invented it! We make it And we protect it with our lives. Unfortunately, there are some people in this room who think they can take it from us 'cause we're the little guyst fm hoping that, after this is all over, you'll see how, by taking our honey, you not only take everything we have but everything we are! I wish he'd dress like that all the time. So nice! Oal your first witness. So, Mr. Klauss Vanderhayden of Honey Farms, big company you have. I suppose so. I see you also own Honeyburton and Honront Yes, they provide beekeepers for our farms. Beekeeper. I find that to be a very disturbing term. I don't imagine you employ any bee-free-ers, do you?- No. -I couldn't hear you.- No.- No. Because you don't free bees. You keep bees. Not only that, it seems you thought a bear would be an appropriate image for a jar of honey. They're very lovable creatures. Yogi Bear, Fozzie Bear, Build-A-Bear. You mean like this? Bears kill beest How'd you like his head crashing through your living room?1 Biting into your couch! Spitting out your throw pilliows! OK, that's enough. Take him away So, Mr. Sting, thank you for being here. Your name intrigues me.- Where have I heard it before?-I was with a band called The Police. But you've never been a police officer,, have you? No, I havent No, you havent And so here we have yet another example of bee culture casually stolen by a human for nothing more than a prance-about stage name. Oh, please. Have you ever been stung, Mr. Sting? Because Im feeling a ite stung, Sting. Or should I say... Mr. Gordon M. Sumnert That's not his real name?! You idiots! Mr. Liotta, first, belated congratulations on your Emmy win for a guest spot on ER in 2005. Thank you. Thank you. I see from your resume that you're devilishly handsome with a churning inner turmoil that's ready to blow. I enjoy what I do. Is that a crime? Not yet it isn't But is this what it's come to for you? Exploting tiny, helpless bees so you don't have to rehearse your part and leam your lines, si? Watch it, Benson! I could blow right now! This isn't a goodfella. This is a badfella! Why doesnt someone just step on this creep, and we can ail go home?- Order in this court!- You're all thinking itt Ordert Order, I say!-Say it- Mr. Liotta, please sit down! I think it was awfully nice of that bear to pitch in like that. I think the jury's on our side. Are we doing everything right, legaly? Im a florist. Right. Well, here's to a great team. To a great team! Well, hello - Ken!-Hello. I didn't think you were coming. No, Iwas just late. I tried to call, but.. the battery.I didn't want all this to go to waste, so I called Barry. Luckily, he was free. Oh, that was lucky. There's a little left. I could heat it up. Yeah, heat it up, sure, whatever. SoI hear you're quite a tennis player. Im not much for the game myself. The bali's a little grabby. Thatr's where I usually sit. Right... there, Ken, Barry was looking at your resume, and he agreed with me that eating with chopsticks isn't really a special skill You think I don't see what you're doing? i know how hard it is to find the rightjob. We have that in common. Do we? Bees have 100 percent employment, but we do jobs like taking the crud out. Thars just what I was thinking about doing. Ken, I let Barry borrow your razor for his fuzz. I hope that was all right. Im going to drain the old stinger. Yeah, you do that. Look at that You know, Ive just about had it with your little mind games.- Whatrs that?-Itaian Vogue. Mamma mia, that's a lot of pages. A lot of ads. Remember what Van said, why is your life more valuable than mine? Funny, I just can't seem to recall that! I think something stinks in heref I love the smel of flowers. How do you smel of fames?1 Not as much, Water bug! Not taking sidest Ken, I'm wearing a Ohapstick hat! This is pathetic! Ive got issuest Wel, well, well, a royal fush-You're bluffing, Am 17 Surfs up, dude! Po0 water That bowl S gnarly. Except for those dirty yellow rings! Kenneth! What are you doing?! You know, I dont even like honey! i don't eat it We need to talkd He's just a itle bee! And he happens to be the nicest bee I've met in a long time! Long time? What are you talking about? Are there other bugs in your life? No, but there are other things bugging me in life. And you're one of them! Fine! Talking bees, no yogurt night. My nerves are fried from riding on this emotional roller coaster! Goodbye,, Ken. And for your information, I prefer sugar-free, artificial sweeteners made by mant m sorry about all that. I know its got an afertaste! 1 like it I always felt there was some kind of barrier between Ken and me. I couldn't overcome it. Oh, well. Are you OK for the trial? I believe Mr. Montgomery is about out of ideas. We would ike to cal Mr. Bary Benson Bee to the stand. Good idea! You can really see why he's considered one of the best lawyers.- Yeah, Layton, you've gotta weave some magic with this jury, or it's gonna be all over. Don't worry. The only thing I have to do to turn this jury around is to remind them of what they dont ike about bees You got the tweezers?-Are you allergic? Only to losing son Only to losing Mr. Benson Bee, ni ask you what I think we'd all like to know What exactly is your relationship to that woman? We're triends.-Good friends?- Yes. How good? Do you live together? Wait a minute. Are you her little.. bedbug? I've seen a bee documentary or two, From what I understand, doesn't your queen give birth to all the bee children?- Yeah, but-So those aren't your real parents!- Oh, Barr.- Yes, they are! Hold me back! Youre an egitimate bee, arent you, Benson? He's denouncing bees! Don't yall date your cousins?- Objection!- Im going to pincushion this guy! Adam, don't it's what he wants! Oh, I'm hit! Oh, lordy, I am hit! Orderl Orderl The venom! The venom is coursing through my veinst I have been felled by a winged beast of destruction! You see? You can't treat them like equalst They're striped savages Singing's the only thing they know! it's their way!-Adam, stay with me.-I can't feel my legs. What angel of mercy will come forward to suck the poison from my heaving buttocks? I will have order in this court. Order! Order, please! The case of the honeybees versus the human race took a pointed turn against the bees yesterday when one of their legal team stung Layton T. Montgomery.- Hey, buddy.- Hey.- Is there much pain?- Yeah. I... 1 blew the whole case, didn't 1? It doesn't matter. What matters is you're alive. You could have died. I'd be beter off dead. Look at me. They got it from the cafeteria downstairs, in a tuna sandwich. Look, there's a little celery still on it. What was it like to sting someone? I can't explain it. It was al.All adrenaline and then... and then ecstasyl All right. You think it was al a trap? Of course. Im sorry. I flew us night into close that window?-Why?-The smoke. Bees don't smoke. Right Bees don't smoke. Bees don't smoke! But some bees are smoking. Thats it! Thars our case! it is? Itrs not over? Get dressed. I've gotta go somewhere. Get back to the court and stall. Stall any way you can. Ánd assuming you've done step correctly, you're ready for the tub. Mr, Flayman Yes? Yes, Your Honort Where is the rest of your team? Well, Your Honor, it's interesting. Bees are trained to fly haphazardly, and as a result, we don't make very good time. I actually heard a funny story about... Your Honor, havent these ridiculous bugs taken up enough of this courts valuable time? How much longer will we allow these absurd shenanigans to go on? They have presented no compelling evidence to support their charges against my clients, who run legitimate businesses. I move for a complete dismissal of this entire case! Mr. Flayman, Im afraid Im going to have to consider Mr. Montgomery's motion. But you can't! We have a terific case, Where is your proo? Where is the evidence? Show me the smoking gunt Hold it, Your Honort You want a smoking gun? Here is your smoking gun. What is that? It's a bee smokert What, this? This harmless Sttle contraption? This couldn't hurt a fy, let alone a bee. Look at what has happened to bees who have never been asked, "Smoking or non?" Is this what nature intended for us? To be forcibly addicted to smoke machines and man-made wooden slat work camps? Living out our lives as honey slaves to the white man?- What are we gonna do?- He's playing the species card. Ladies and gentlemen, please, free these bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free the beest Free the bees! The court finds in favor of the bees! Vanessa, we won! I knew you could do it High-five! Sorry. Im OK! You know what this means? All the honey will finally belong to the bees. Now we won't have to work so hard all the time. This is an unholy perversion of the balance of nature, Benson, You'll regret this. Barry, how much honey is out there? All right One at a time. Barry, who are you wearing? My sweater is Ralph Lauren, and I have no pants.-What if Montgomery's right?- What do you mean? We've been living the bee way a long time, 27 million years. Oongratulations on your victory. What will you demand as a settlement? First, we'll demand a complete shutdown of all bee work camps. Then we want back the honey that was ours to begin with, every last drop. We demand an end to the giorification of the bear as anything more than afthy, smelly, bad-breath stink machine We're all aware of what they do in the woods. Wait for my signal. Take him out. He'll have nauseous for a few hours, then he'll be fine. And we will no longer tolerate bee-negative nicknames. But it's just a prance-about stage name!..unnecessary inclusion of honey in bogus health products and la-dee-da human tea-time snack ganishments. Oan't breathe. Bring it in, boys! Hold it right there! Good. Tap it. Mr. Buzzwell, we just passed three cups, and there's gallons more coming!-I think we need to shut down!- Shut down?7 We've never shut down. Shut down honey production! Stop making honey! Tun your key, sirl What do we do now? Oannonbalf We're shutting honey production! Mission abort Aborting pollination and nectar detail. Returning to base. Adam, you wouldn't believe how much honey was out there. Oh, yeah? What's going on? Where is everybody?-Are they out celebrating?-They're home. They dont know what to do. Laying out, sleeping in. I heard your Uncle Oarl was on his way to San Antonio with a cricket. At least we got our honey back. Sometimesi think, so what if humans iked our honey Who wouldn't? It's the greatest thing in the world! I was excited to be part of making it This was my new desk. This was my new job. I wanted to do it really well. And now.. Now I can't I dont understand why theyre not happy. I thought their lives would be better! They're doing nothing It's amazing. Honey really changes people. You don't have any idea what's going on, do you?- What did you want to show me?- This. What happened here? That is not the half of it. Oh, no Oh, my. They're all wilting Doesn't look very good, does it? No. And whose fault do you think that is? You know, I'm gonna guess bees Bees? Specifically, me. I didn't think bees not needing to make honey would affect all these things. It's notust flowers. Fruits, vegetables, they all need bees. Thar's our whole SAT test right there. Take away produce, that affects the entire animal kingdom. And then, of course... The human species? So if there's no more polination, it could all just go south here, couldn't it? I know this is also partly my fault. How about a suicide pact? How do we do it?-ni sting you, you step on me. - Thatust kills you twice. Right, right. Listen, Barry.. sorry, but I gotta get going. I had to open my mouth and tak. Vanessa? Vanessa? Why are you leaving? Where are you going? To the final Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena They've moved at to this weekend because all the flowers are dying. It's the last chance nil ever have to see it. Vanessa, Ijust wanna say Im sory. i never meant it to turn out like this. I know. Me neither. Tounament of Roses. Roses cant do sports. Wait a minute. Roses. Roses? Roses! Vanessa! Roses?! Barry?- Roses are flowers!- Yes, they are. Flowers, bees, pollent I know. Thafs why this is the last parade. Maybe not. Oould you ask him to slow down? Oould you slow down? Barry! OK, I made a huge mistake. This is a total disaster, all my fault. Yes, it kind of is. Ive ruined the planet. I wanted to help you with the flower shop. Ive made pollent I know Thar's w Vanessa, Iust wanna s my mouth and talk Vaneeation, it could allust on so Ould affect all these thinns worse. Actually. it's completely closed down, I thought maybe you were remodeling. But I have another idea, and it's greater than my previous ideas combined. I don't want to hear it All right, they have the roses, the roses have the pollen. i know every bee. plant and flower bud in this park. All we gotta do is get what theyve got back here with what we've got-Bees-Park. Polen! Flowers Repollinationt-Across the nation! Tournament of Roses, Pasadena, Oaldormia. They've got nothing but flowers, floats and cotton candy. Security will be tight I have an idea. Vanessa Bloome, FTD. Official floral business Its real. Sorry, ma'am. Nice brooch. Thank you. It was a gift. Once inside, we just pick the right float. How about The Princess and the Pea? I could be the princess, and you could be the pea! Yes, I got it-Where should I sit?- What are you?-I believe Im the pea. The pea? It goes under the maitresses Not in this fairy tale, sweetheart.-Im getting the marshal. You do that This whole parade is a fascof Lets see what this babyll do. Hey, what are you doing?1 Then all we do is biend in with traficwithout arousing suspicion. Once at the airport, there's no stopping us. Stop! Security, You and your insect pack your float?-Yes. Has it been in your possession the entire time? Would you remove your shoes?-Remove your stinger-It's part of me. I know.. Just having some fun. Enjoy your fight. Then if we're lucky, wel have just enough pollen to do the job. Oan you believe how lucky we are? We have just enough pollen to do the job! I think this is gonna work It's got to work. Attention, passengers, this is Oaptain Scott. We have a bit of bad weather in New York. It looks like wel experience a couple hours delay Barry, these are cut flowers with no water. Theyl never make it. I gotta get up there and talk to them. Be careful. Oan I get heip with the Sky Mal magazine? I'd like to order the talking inflatable nose and ear hair trimmer. Oaptain, Fm in a real situation. Whatd you say, Hal? Nothing Beef Don't freak outf My entire species. What are you doing?-Wait a minutet Im an attorney!-Who's an attorney? Don't move. Oh, Barry. Good aternoon, passengers. This is your captain. Would a Miss Vanessa Bloome in 24B please report to the cockpit? And please hurry! What happened here? There was a DustBuster, a toupee, a lide rat exploded. One's bald, one's in a boat, they're both unconscious!- Is that another bee joke?- Nof No one's flying the plane! This is JFK control tower, Flight 356. Whar's your status? This is Vanessa Bloome. I'm a florist from New York. Where's the pilot? He's unconscious, and so is the copilot. Not good. Does anyone onboard have fight experience? As a matter of fact, there is- Who's that?-Barry Benson. From the honey trial?! Oh, great Vanessa, this is nothing more than a big metal bee. It's got giant wings, huge engines. I can't ty a plane.- Why notr? Isn't John Travolta a pilot?-Yes. How hard could it be? Wait, Barry! We're headed into some lightning. This is Bob Bumble. We have some late-breaking news from JFK Airport, where a suspenseful scene is developing Barry Benson, fresh from his legal victory... Thars Barry! s attempting to land a plane, loaded with people, lowers and an incapacitated fight crew. Flowers?1 We have a storm in the area and two individuals at the controls with absolutely no flight experience. Just a minute. There's a bee on that plane. Im quite familiar with Mr. Benson and his no-account compadres. They've done enough damage. But isn't he your only hope? Technically, a bee shouldn't be able to fly at all. Their wings are too smal.. Haven't we heard this a milion times? "The surface area of the wings and body mass make no sense.- Get this on the airf- Got it-Stand by.- We're going live. The way we work may be a mystery to you. Making honey takes a lot of bees doing a lot of small jobs. But let me tell you about a small job. If you do it well, it makes a big difference. More than we realized. To us, to everyone. That's why I want to get bees back to working together. That's the bee way! We're not made of Jell-O. We get behind a felow.-Biack and yellow!- Hello! Left, right, down, hover.- Hover?-Forget hover. This isn't so hard. Beep-beept Beep-beep! Barry, what happened?1 Wait, I think we were on autopilot the whole time -That may have been helping me.-And now we're not So it tums out I cannot fly a plane. All of you, let's get behind this fellow! Move it outt Move out! Our only chance is if I do what rd do, you copy me with the wings of the plane! Don't have to yell. Im not yelling! We're in a lot of trouble. It's very hard to concentrate with that panicky tone in your voicef It's not a tone. I'm panicking! I can't do thist Vanessa, pull yourself together. You have to snap out of it You snap out of it You snap out of it. - You snap out of it- You snap out of it!- You snap out of it!-You snap out of it- You snap out of it!- You snap out of it!- Hold it!-Why?

That was genius!-Thank you.-But we're not done yet. Listen, everyone! This runway is covered with the last pollen from the last flowers available anywhere on Earth. That means this is our last chance. We're the only anes who make honey, polinate flowers and dress like this. If we're gonna survive as a species, this is our moment! What do you say? Are we going to be bees, orjust Museum of Natural History keychains? We're bees! Keychain! Then folow met Except Keychain. Hold on, Barry. Here. You've earned this. Yeah! I'm a Pollen Jock!

Alive, Being Alone, and Animals: Roses are red, baseball uses a bat According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat litle body off the ground. The bee. of course, fies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black, Ooh, black and yelow! Let's shake it up a itle. Barry! Breakfast is readyf Ooming! Hang on a second. Hello?- Barry?-Adam?-Oan you believe this is happening?-I cant. nl pick you up.

You did come back different.- Hi, Barry.-Artie, growing a mustache? Looks good. Hear about Frankie? Yeah. - You going to the funeral?- No, I'm not going. Everybody knows, sting someone, you die. Don't waste it on a squirrel. Such a hothead. I guess he could have just gotten out of the way. I love this incorporating an amusement park into our day. That's why we don't need vacations. Boy, quite a bit of pomp.. under the circumstances. Weil, Adam, today we are men.- We are! - Bee-men. -Ament Hallelujah! Students, faculty, distinguished bees, please welcome Dean Buzzwell. Welcome, New Hive Oity graduating class of.. a division of Honesco and a part of the Hexagon Group. This is itt Wow. Wow. We know that you, as a bee, have worked your whole life to get to the point where you can work for your whole life. Honey begins when our valiant Pollen Jocks bring the nectar to the hive. Our top-secret formula is automatically color-corected, scent-adjusted and bubble-contoured into this soothing sweet syrup with its distinctive golden glow you know as.. Honeyt- That girl was hot- She's my cousint She iss?-Yes, we're all cousins. Right. You're right. -At Honex, we constantly strive to improve every aspect of bee existence. These bees are stress-testing a new helmet technology. - What do you think he makes?- Not enough. Here we have our latest advancement, the Krelman. - What does that do?- Oatches that little strand of honey that hangs after you pour it Saves us millions. Oan anyone work on the Kreiman? Of course. Most bee jobs are small ones. But bees know that every small job, if it's done well, means a lot. But choose carefully because you'll stay in the job you pick for the rest of your life. The same job the rest of your life? I didn't know that. Whats the difference? Youll be happy to know that bees, as a species, haven't had one day off in 27 million years. So youll just work us to death? Well sure try. Wow! That blew my mind! "What's the difference? How can you say that? One job forever? That's an insane choice to have to make. I'm relieved.

Oheck it out.- Hey, those are Polen Jocks!- Wow. Fve never seen them this close. They know what it's like outside the hive. Yeah, but some don't come back. -Hey, Jocks!- Hi, Jocks! You guys did great You're monsters! You're sky freakst I love it I love it!-I wonder where they were.-I don't know. Their day's not planned. Outside the hive, flying who knows where, doing who knows what. You can'tjust decide to be a Pollen Jock. You have to be bred for that. Right Look. That's more pollen than you and I will see in a lifetime. It's just a status symbol. Bees make too much of it. Perhaps. Unless you're wearing it and the ladies see you wearing it. Those ladies? Aren't they our cousins too? Distant. Distant. Look at these two. -Oouple of Hive Harrys. - Let's have fun with them, It must be dangerous being a Pollen Jock. Yeah. Once a bear pinned me against a mushroom! He had a paw on my throat, and with the other, he was slapping me!-Oh, my!-I never thought rd knock him out What were you doing during this?

Itrs a beautiful thingg. You know, Dad,, the more I think about it, maybe the honey field just isn't right for me. You were thinking of what, making balloon animals? That's a bad job for a guy with a stinger. Janet, your son's not sure he wants to go into honeyl - Barry, you are so funny sometimes I'm not trying to be funny. You're not funny! You're going into honey. Our son, the stirrer- You're gonna be a stirrer?- No one's listening to me! Wait till you see the sticks I have. I could say anything right now. I'm gonna get an ant tattoo!

The wedding is on. And he says, "Watermelon? I thought you said Guatemalan. Why would I marry a watermeion? Is that a bee joke? That's the kind of stuff we do. Yeah, different. So, what are you gonna do, Bary? About work? I dont know. I want to do my part for the hive, but I can't do it the way they want. I know how you feel. You do?- Sure. My parents wanted me to be a lawyer or a doctor, but I wanted to be a florist. -Really? -My only interest is flowers. Our new queen was just elected with that same campaign slogan. Anyway, if you look... There's my hive right there. See it? Youre in Sheep Meadow! Yes! Im right off the Turtle Pond! No way! I know that area. I lost a toe ring there once.- Why do girls put rings on their toes?-Why not?- It's like putting a hat on your knee. Maybe n try that You all right, ma'am?-Oh, yeah. Fine. Just having two cups of coffee! Anyway, this has been great. Thanks for the coffee. Yeah, it's no trouble. Sorry I couldn't finish it. If i did, I'd be up the rest of my life. Are you...?

It was amazing It was the scariest, happiest moment of my life. Humans! I can't believe you were with humans! Giant, scary humans! What were they like? Huge and crazy. They talk crazy. They eat crazy giant things. They drive crazy. Do they try and kill you, like on TV? Some of them. But some of them don't -How'd you get back?- Poodle. You did it, and Im glad.

She's. human. No, no. That's a bee law. You wouldn't break a bee law. Her name's Vanessa. Oh, Eat this. This is not over! What was that? They call it a crumb. -It was so stingin' stripey! And that's not what they eat. That's what falls off what they eat!- You know what a Oinnabon is?- No. I's bread and cinnamon and frosting. They heat it up... Sit down!really hot!- Listen to me We are not them! We're us. There's us and there's them! Yes, but who can deny the heart that is yearning? There's no yeaming. Stop yearning. Listen to me! You have got to start thinking bee, my friend. Thinking beet Thinking bee. - Thinking bee. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! There he is. He's in the pool. You know what your problem is, Barry? I gotta start thinking bee? How much longer will this go on? Iit's been three days! Why arent you working? I've got a lot of big life decisions to think about. What life? You have no life! You have no job. You're barely a beet Would it kill you to make a little honey? Barry, come out. Your father's talking to you. Martin, would you talk to him? Barry, Im talking to you! You coming? Got everything? All set Go ahead. l catch up. Don't be too long. Watch this! Vanessa! - We're still here. - i told you not to yell at him.

A girt? is this why you can't decide? Bye. I just hope she's Bee-ish. They have a huge parade of flowers every year in Pasadena? To be in the Tournament of Roses, that's every florist's dreamt Up on a float, surrounded by flowers, crowds cheering. A tournament. Do the roses compete in athletic events? No. All right, I've got one. How come you don't fly everywhere? It's exhausting. Why don't you run everywhere? It's faster. Yeah, OK, I see, I see. All right, your turn. TVo. You can just freeze live TV? That's insane! You dont have that? We have Hivo, but itrs a disease. It's a horrible, horrible disease. Oh, my. Dumb bees! You must want to sting all those jerks. We try not to sting. It's usually fatal for us. So you have to watch your temper. Very carefully. You kick a wal, take a walk, write an angry letter and throw it out. Work through it like any emotion: Anger, jealousy, lust. Oh, my goodness! Are you OK? Yeah, - What is wrong with you? It's a bug. He's not bothering anybody. Get out of here. you creep! What was that? A Pic N' Save circular? Yeah, it was. How did you know? it felt like about 10 pages. Seventy-five is pretty much our limit. You've really got that down to a science.-I lost a cousin to Italian Vogue.-ril bet. What in the name of Mighty Hercules is this? How did this get here? Oute Bee, Golden Blossom, Ray Liotta Private Select?- Is he that actor?-I never heard of him. - Why is this here?- For people. We eat it. You don't have enough food of your own?- Well, yes. -How do you get it?- hospitals! This is all we have! And it's on sale?! Im getting to the bottom of this. I'm getting to the bottom of all of this! Hey, Hector You almost done?-Almost. He is here. I sense it. Well, I guess nil go home now and just leave this nice honey out, with no one around. You're busted, box boyi I knew I heard something. So you can talk! I can talk. And now you'll start talking! Where you getting the sweet stuf? Who's your supplier? I don't understand. I thought we were friends. The last thing we want to do is upset bees! You're too late! It's ours now! You, sir, have crossed the wrong sword! You, sir, will be lunch for my iguana, Ignacio! Where is the honey coming from? Tell me where! Honey Farms! it comes from Honey Farms! Orazy person! What horible thing has happened here? These faces, they never knew what hit them. And now they're on the road to nowhere! Just keep still What? You're not dead? Do I look dead? They will wipe anything that moves. Where you headed? To Honey Farms. I am onto something huge here. I'm going to Alaska. Moose blood, crazy stuff. Blows your head off! I'm going to Tacoma. -And you?- He really is dead. All right. Uh-oh!- What is that?!- Oh, not-A wipert Triple blade!- Triple blade? Jump on! Its your only chance, bee! Why does everything have to be so doggone clean?! How much do you people need to see?! Open your eyes! Stick your head out the window! From NPR News in Washington, I'm Oarl Kasell. But don't kill no more bugs!- Bee! Moose blood guy!!- You hear something?- Like what? Like tiny screaming. Turn off the radio. Whassup, bee boy? Hey, Blood. Just a row of honey jars, as far as the eye could see. Wow! I assume wherever this truck goes is where theyre getting it. I mean, that honey's ours. Bees hang tight- We're all jammed in. It's a close community Not us, man. We on our own. Every mosquito on his own - What if you get in trouble?-You a mosquito, you in trouble. Nobody likes us. They just smack. See a mosquito, smack, smack! At least you're out in the world. You must meet girls. Mosquito girls try to trade up, get with a moth, dragonfly. Mosquito girl don't want no mosquito. You got to be kidding me! Mooseblood's about to leave the building! So long, bee!- Hey, guys!- Mooseblood knew rd catch yall down here. Did you bring your crazy straw? We throw it in jars, slap a label on it, and it's pretty much pure profit. What is this place? A bee's got a brain the size of a pinhead. They are pinheads! Pinhead. Oheck out the new smoker. Oh, sweet. That's the one you want. The Thomas 30001 Smoker? Ninety putts a minute, semi-automatic. Twice the nicotine, all the tar. A couplee breaths of this knocks them right out They make the honey, and we make the money "They make the honey, and we make the money"? Oh, my! What's going on? Are you OK? Yeah. It doesn't last too long. Do you know you're in a fake hive with fake walls? Our queen was moved here. We had no choice. This is your queen? That's a man in women's clothes! That's a drag queen! What is this? Oh, no! There's hundreds of them! Bee honey. Our honey is being brazenly stolen on a massive scale! This is worse than anything bears have done! I intend to do something. Oh, Barry, stop. Who told you humans are taking our honey? That's a rumor. Do these look like rumors? That's a conspiracy theory. These are obviously doctored photos How did you get mixed up in this? He's been talking to humans. What?-Taking to humans?1 He has a human girlfriend. And they make outf Make out? Barry! We do not. You wish you could.- Whose side are you on? The bees! I dated a cricket once in San Antonio. Those crazy legs kept me up all night. Barry, this is what you want to do with your life? I want to do it for all our lives. Nobody works harder than bees! Dad, I remember you coming home so overworked your hands were still stirring. You couldn't stop. I remember that. What right do they have to our honey? We live on two cups a year. They put it in lip balm for no reason whatsoever! Even if it's true, what can one bee do? Sting them where it really hurts. In the face! The eye!- That would hurt. No. Up the nose? That's a killer. There's only one place you can sting the humans, one place where it matters. Hive at Five, the hive's only full-hour action news source. No more bee beards! With Bob Bumble at the anchor desk. Weather with Storm Stinger. Sportis with Buzz Larvi. And Jeanette Ohung. Good evening. I'm Bob Bumble.-And im Jeanette Ohung. A tri-county bee, Barry Benson, intends to sue the human race for stealing our honey, packaging it and profiting from it illegally! Tomorrow night on Bee Larry King, we'l have three former queens here in our studio, discussing their new book, Olassy Ladies, out this week on Hexagon. Tonight we're talking to Barry Benson. Did you ever think, Tm a kid from the hive. I cant do this7 Bees have never been afraid to change the world. What about Bee Oolumbus? Bee Gandhi? Bejesus? Where I'm from, we'd never sue humans. We were thinking of stickball or candy stores. How old are you? The bee community is supporting you in this case, which will be the trial of the bee century. You know, they have a Larry King in the human world too. It's a common name. Next week.. He looks like you and has a show and suspenders and colored dots... Next week... Glasses, quotes on the botom from the guest even though you just heard 'em. Bear Week next week! They're scary. hairy and here live. Always leans forward, pointy shoulders, squinty eyes, very Jewish, In tennis, you attack at the point of weakness! It was my grandmother, Ken She's 81. Honey, her Why does he talk again? Listen, you better go cause we're really busy working. But it's our yogurt night! Bye-bye. Why is yogurt night so difficult?! You poor thing. You two have been at this for hours! Yes, and Adam here has been a huge help. - Frosting How many sugars? Just one. i try not to use the competition. So why are you helping me? Bees have good qualities. And it takes my mind of the shop. Instead of flowers, people are giving balloon bouquets now. Those are great, if you're three. And artificial flowers. Oh, those just get me psychotic!-Yeah, me too. Bent stingers, pointless polination. Bees must hate those fake things! Nothing worse than a daffodil that's had work done. Maybe this could make up for it a ittle bit.- This lawsuit's a pretty big deal, -I guess. You sure you want to go through with it? Am I sure? When I'm done with the humans, they won't be able to say, "Honey, I'm home." without paying a royalty! It's an incredible scene here in downtown Manhattan, where the world anxiously waits, because for the first time in history, we will hear for ourselves if a honeybee can actually speak What have we gotten into here, Barry? its pretty big, isn't it? I can't believe how many humans don't work during the day. You think bilion-dollar multinational food companies have good lawyers? Everybody needs to stay behind the barricade. - What's the matter? -I don't know, I just got a chil. Well, if it isnt the bee team. You boys work on this? All rise! The Honorable Judge Bumbleton presiding. All right. Oase number 4475, Superior Oourt of New York, Barry Bee Benson v. the Honey Industry is now in session. Mr. Montgomery,. you're representing the five food companies collectively? A privilege. Mr. Benson... you're representing all the bees of the world? Im kidding. Yes, Your Honor, we're ready to proceed. Mr. Montgomery, your opening statement, please. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my grandmother was a simple woman. Born on a farm, she believed it was man's divine right to benefit from the bounty of nature God put before us. If we lived in the topsy-turvy world Mr. Benson imagines, just think of what would it mean. I would have to negotiate with the silkworm for the elastic in my britches! Talking bee! How do we know this isn't some sort of holographic motion-picture-capture Hollywood wizardry? They could be using laser beams! Robotics! Ventriloquism! Oloning! For all we know, he could be on steroids! Mr. Benson? Ladies and gentlemen, there's no trickery here. I'm just an ordinary bee. Honey's pretty important to me. It's important to all bees. We invented it! We make it. And we protect it with our lives. Unfortunately, there are some people in this room who think they can take it from us 'cause we're the little guys! I'm hoping that, after this is all over, you'll see how, by taking our honey, you not only take everything we have but everything we are! I wish he'd dress like that all the time. So nice! Oall your first witness. So, Mr. Klauss Vanderhayden of Honey Farms, big company you have. I suppose so. I see you also own Honeyburton and Honron! Yes, they provide beekeepers for our farms. Beekeeper. I find that to be a very disturbing term. I don't imagine you employ any bee-free-ers, do you? No. -I couldn't hear you. - No. - No. Because you don't free bees. You keep bees. Not only that, it seems you thought a bear would be an appropriate image for a jar of honey. They're very lovable creatures. Yogi Bear, Fozzie Bear, Build-A-Bear. You mean tike this? Bears kill beest How'd you lke his head crashing through your living room?1 Biting into your couch! Spitting out your throw pillows! OK, that's enough. Take him away. So, Mr. Sting, thank you for being here. Your name intrigues me.- Where have I heard it before?-I was with a band called The Police. But you've never been a police officer, have you? No, I havent. No. you havent. And so here we have yet andother example of bee culture casually stolen by a human for nothing more than a prance-about stage name. Oh, please. Have you ever been stung. Mr. Sting? Because I'm feeling a little stung, Sting. Or should I say... Mr. Gordon M, Sumner! That's not his real name?! You idiots! Mr., Liotta, first, belated congratulations on your Emmy win for a guest spot on ER in 2005. Thank you. Thank you. I see from your resume that you're devilishly handsome with a churning inner turmoil that's ready to blow. I enjoy what I do. Is that a crime? Not yet it isn't But is this what it's come to for you? Exploiting tiny, helpless bees so you dont Liotta, please sit down! I think it was awfully nice of that bear to pitch in like that. I think the jury's on our side. Are we doing everything right, legally? I'm a florist. Right. Well, here's to a great team. To a great team! Well, hello. Kent - Hello. I didn't think you were coming. No. I was just late. I tried to call, but... the battery. I didn't want all this to go to waste, so I called Bary. Luckily, he was free. Oh, that was lucky. There's a little left. I could heat it up. Yeah, heat it up, sure, whatever. So I hear you're quite a tennis player. I'm not much for the game myself. The bal's a little grabby. That's where I usually sit. Right... there, Ken, Barry was looking at your resume, and he agreed with me that eating with chopsticks isn't really a special skill. You think I don't see what you're doing? i know how hard it is to find the rightjob. We have that in common. Do we? Bees have 100 percent employment, but we do jobs like taking the crud out. That's just what I was thinking about doing. Ken, I let Barry borrow your razor for his fuzz. I hope that was all right. I'm going to drain the old stinger. Yeah, you do that. Look at that. You know, I've just about had it with your little mind games. - What's that? Italian Vogue. Mamma mia, that's a lot of pages. A lot of ads. Remember what Van said, why is your life more valuable than mine? Funny, I just cant seem to recall that! I think something stinks in here! I love the smeil of flowers. How do you like the smell of flames?! Not as much. Water bug! Not taking sidest Ken, rm wearing a Ohapstick hat! This is pathetic! I've got issues! Well, well, well, a royal flush!- You're bluffing. -Am 17 Surfs up, dude! Poo water! That bowl is gnary. Except for those dirty yelow rings! Kenneth! What are you doing?! You know, I dont even like honey! I dont eat it We need to talk! He's just a ittle bee! And he happens to be the nicest bee Ive met in a long time! Long time? What are you talking about?! Are there other bugs in your life? No, but there are other things bugging me in life. And you're one of them! Fine! Talking bees, no yogurt night... My nerves are fried from riding on this emotional roller coaster! Goodbye, Ken. And for your information, I prefer sugar-free, artificial sweeteners made by man! Im sorry about all that. I know it's got an aftertaste! I like it! I always felt there was some kind of barier between Ken and me. I couldn't overcome it. Oh, well. Are you OK for the trial? I believe Mr. Montgomery is about out of ideas. We would like to call Mr. Bary Benson Bee to the stand. Good ideal You can really see why he's considered one of the best lawyers..Yeah. Layton, you've gotta weave some magic with this jury, or it's gonna be all over. Don't worry. The only thing I have to do to turn this jury around is to remind them of what they dont like about bees, - You got the tweezers? Are you allergic? Only to losing, son. Only to losing. Mr. Benson Bee, ri ask you what I think we'd al like to know. What exactly is your relationship to that woman? We're friends.- Good friends?-Yes. How good? Do you live together? Wait a minute... Are you her little..bedbug? Ive seen a bee documentary or two. From what I understand, doesn't your queen give birth to all the bee children?- Yeah, but..-So those aren't your real parents!- Oh, Barry.-Yes, they are! Hold me back! You're an ilegitimate bee, aren't you, Benson? He's denouncing bees! Dont yall date your cousins?- Objection! Im going to pincushion this guy! Adam, don't its what he wants! Oh, I'm hit!! Oh, lordy, I am hit! Order! Order! The venom! The venom is coursing through my veins! I have been felled by a winged beast of destruction! You see? You can't treat them like equals! They're striped savages! Stinging's the only thing they know! It's their way!-Adam, stay with me. -I can't feel my legs. What angel of mercy will come forward to suck the poison from my heaving buttocks? I will have order in this court. Order! Order, please! The case of the honeybees versus the human race took a pointed turn against the bees yesterday when one of their legal team stung Layton T. Montgomery. Hey, buddy.- Hey. Is there much pain?- Yeah. I... blew the whole case, didn't 1? It doesn't matter. What matters is you're alive. You could have died. r'd be better off dead. Look at me. They got it from the cafeteria downstairs, in a tuna sandwich. Look, there's a litle celery still on it. What was it like to sting someone? I can't explain it. It was all.. Al adrenaline and then... and then ecstasy! All right. You think it was all a trap? Of course. Im sorry. I flew us right into this. What were we thinking? Look at us. We're just a couple of bugs in this world. What will the humans do to us if they win? I dont know. I hear they put the roaches in motels. That doesn't sound so bad. Adam, they check in, but they don't check out! Oh, my. Oould you get a nurse to close that window?-Why?- The smoke. Bees don't smoke. Right. Bees don't smoke. Bees don't smoke! But some bees are smoking. That's it! That's our case! it is? It's not over? Get dressed. I've gotta go somewhere. Get back to the court and stall. Stall any way you can. And assuming you've done step correctly, you're ready for the tub. Mr. Flayman. Yes? Yes. Your Honor! Where is the rest of your team? Well, Your Honor, it's interesting. Bees are trained to fly haphazardly, and as a result, we don't make very good time. I actually heard a funny story about... Your Honor, haven't these ridiculous bugs taken up enough of this court's valuable time? How much longer will we allow these absurd shenanigans to go on? They have presented no compelling evidence to support their charges against my clients, who run legitimate businesses. I move for a complete dismissal of this entire case! Mr. Flayman, Im afraid I'm going to have to consider Mr. Montgomery's motion. But you can't! We have a terrific case. Where is your proor? Where is the evidence? Show me the smoking gun! Hold it, Your Honort You want a smoking gun? Here is your smoking gun. What is that? It's a bee smoker! What, this? This harmless ltle contraption? This couldn't hurt a fly, let alone a bee. Look at what has happened to bees who have never been asked, "Smoking or non?" Is this what nature intended for us? To be forcibly addicted to smoke machines and man-made wooden slat work camps? Living out our lives as honey slaves to the white man?- What are we gonna do?-He's playing the species card. Ladies and gentlemen, please, free these bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free ther Benson. Youl regret this. Barry, how much honey is out there? All right. One at a time. Barry, who are you wearing? My sweater is Ralph Lauren, and I have no pants. What if Montgomery's right? - What do you mean? We've been living the bee way a long time, 27 million years. Oongratulations on your victory. What will you demand as a settlement? First, wel demand a complete shutdown of all bee work camps. Then we want back the honey that was ours to begin with, every last drop. We demand an end to the glorification of the bear as anything more than a fithy, smelly, bad-breath stink machine. We're all aware of what they do in the woods. Wait for my signal. Take him out. Hell have nauseous for a few hours, then hell be fine. And we will no longer tolerate bee-negative nicknames... But it's just a prance-about stage name!..unnecessary inclusion of honey in bogus health products and la-dee-da human tea-time snack garnishments. Oant breathe. Bring it in, boys! Hold it right there! Good. Tap it. Mr. Buzzwell, we just passed three cups, and there's gallons more coming!-I think we need to shut down!-Shut down? We've never shut down. Shut down honey production! Stop making honey! Tum your key, sir! What do we do now? Oannonball! Were shutting honey production! Mission abort. Aborting pollination and nectar detail. Returning to base. Adam, you wouldn't believe how much honey was out there. Oh, yeah? What's going on? Where is everybody?-Are they out celebrating?- They're home. They dont know what to do. Laying out, sleeping in. I heard your Uncle Oarl was on his way to San Antonio with a cricket. At least we got our honey back. Sometimes I think, so what if humans liked our honey? Who wouldn't? it's the greatest thing in the world! I was excited to be part of making it. This was my new desk. This was my new job. Iwanted to do it really well. And now... Now I can't I don't understand why they're not happy. I thought their lives would be better! They're doing nothing. It's amazing. Honey really changes people. You don't have any idea what's going on, do you?- What did you want to show me?-This. What happened here? That is not the half of it. Oh, no. Oh, my. They're all wilting. Doesn't look very good, does it? No. And whose fault do you think that is? You know, I'm gonna guess bees. Bees? Specifically, me. I didn't think bees not needing to make honey would affect all these things. It's notjust flowers. Fruits, vegetables, they all need bees. That's our whole SAT test right there. Take away produce, that affects the entire animal kingdom. And then, of course... The human species? So if there's no more polination, it could all just go south here, couldn't it? I know this is also partly my fault. How about a suicide pact? How do we do it?- ni sting you, you step on me. Thatjust kills you twice. Right, right. Listen, Barry. sorry, but I gotta get going. I had to open my mouth and talk. Vanessa? Vanessa? Why are you leaving? Where are you going? To the final Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena. They've moved it to this weekend because all the flowers are dying. It's the last chance nl ever have to see it. Vanessa, I just wanna say Im sory. I never meant it to turn out like this. I know. Me neither. Tounament of Roses. Roses can't do sports. Wait a minute. Roses. Roses? Roses! Vanessa! Roses?! Barry?- Roses are flowers!- Yes, they are. Flowers, bees, pollent I know. That's why this is the last parade. Maybe not. Oould you ask him to slow down? Oould you slow down? Barry! OK, I made a huge mistake. This is a total disaster, all my fault. Yes, it kind of is. Ive ruined the planet. I wanted to help you with the flower shop. I've made it worse. Actually, it's completely closed down, I thought maybe you were remodeling. But I have another idea, and it's greater than my previous ideas combined. I don't want to hear it! All right, they have the roses, the roses have the pollen. I know every bee, plant and flower bud in this park. All we gotta do is get what they've got back here with what we've got Bees-Park. - Pollen! Flowers-Repolination!-Across the nation! Tounament of Roses, Pasadena. Oalifornia. They've got nothing but flowers, floats and cotton candy. Security will be tight. I have an idea. you?-I believe Im the pea. The pea? It goes under the maitresses. Not in this fairy tale, sweetheart-im getting the marshal. You do thati This whole parade is a fiascol Lets see what this babyll do. Hey, what are you doing?! Then all we do is blend in with trafficwithout arousing suspicion. Once at the airport, there's no stopping us. Stop! Security.- You and your insect pack your float?- Yes. Has it been in your possession the entire time? Would you remove your shoes?-Remove your stinger- It's part of me. I know. Just having some fun. Enjoy your flight. Theri if we're lucky, we have just enough pollen to do the job. Oan you believe how lucky we are? We have just enough pollen to do the job! i think this is gonna work. It's got to work. Áttention, passengers, this is Oaptain Scott. We have a bit of bad weather in New York, it looks like we'll experience a couple hours delay. Barry, these are cut fiowers with no water. Theyl never make it. I gotta get up there and talk to them. Be careful. Oan I get help with the Sky Mall magazine? r'd ike to order the talking inflatable nose and ear hair trimmer. Oaptain, Im in a real situation. experience a couple hours delay. Barry, these are cut flowers with no water Thele e ust enough pollen to do the jobt I think this is gonna work, It's aot to work ttenti -What'd you say, Hal? Nothing. Beef Don't freak out! My entire species... What are you doing?- Wait a minute! Im an attorney!-Who's an attorney? Dont move. Oh, Barry. Good afternoon, passengers. This is your captain. Would a Miss Vanessa Bloome in 248 please report to the cockpit? And please hurry! What happened here? There was a DustBuster, a toupee, a liMe raft exploded. One's bald, one's in a boat, they're both unconscious!- Is that another bee joke?-Nof No one's flying the plane! This is JFK control tower, Flight 356. Whatrs your status? This is Vanessa Bloome. I'm a florist from New York. Where's the pilot? He's unconscious, and so is the copilot. Not good. Does anyone onboard have flight experience? As a matter of fact, there is- Who's that?-Barry Benson. From the honey trial?! Oh, great. Vanessa, this is nothing more than a big metal bee. It's got giant wings, huge engines. I can't fly a plane.- Why not? Isn't John Travolta a pilot?- Yes. How hard could it be? Wait, Barry! We're headed into some ightning. This is Bob Bumble. We have some late-breaking news from JFK Airport, where a suspenseful a minute. There's a bee on that plane. I'm quite familiar with Mr. Benson and his no-account compadres. They've done enough damage. But isn't he your only hope? Technically, a bee shouldn't be able to fly at all. Their wings are too small... Haven't we heard this a million times? "The surface area of the wings and body mass make no sense Get this on the air Got it. Stand by.- We're going live. The way we work may be a mystery to you. Making honey takes a lot of bees doing a lot of small jobs. But let me tell you about a small job. If you do it well, it makes a big difference. More than we realized. To us, to everyone. That's why I want to get bees back to working together. That's the bee way! We're not made of Jell-O. We get behind a fellow.-Black and yellow-Hello! Left, right, down, hover- Hover?-Forget hover. This isn't so hard. Beep-beep Beep-beep! Barry, what happened?!

Alive, Being Alone, and Animals: Roses are red, baseball uses a bat According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly.

The wedding is on. And he says, "Watermelon? I thought you said Guatemalan. Why would I marry a watermeion? Is that a bee joke? That's the kind of stuff we do. Yeah, different. So, what are you gonna do, Bary? About work? I dont know. I want to do my part for the hive, but I can't do it the way they want. I know how you feel. You do?- Sure. My parents wanted me to be a lawyer or a doctor, but I wanted to be a florist. -Really? -My only interest is flowers. Our new queen was just elected with that same campaign slogan. Anyway, if you look... There's my hive right there. See it? Youre in Sheep Meadow! Yes! Im right off the Turtle Pond! No way! I know that area.

I dated a cricket once in San Antonio. Those crazy legs kept me up all night. Barry, this is what you want to do with your life? I want to do it for all our lives. Nobody works harder than bees! Dad, I remember you coming home so overworked your hands were still stirring. You couldn't stop. I remember that. What right do they have to our honey? We live on two cups a year. They put it in lip balm for no reason whatsoever! Even if it's true, what can one bee do? Sting them where it really hurts. In the face! The eye!- That would hurt. No. Up the nose? That's a killer. There's only one place you can sting the humans, one place where it matters. Hive at Five, the hive's only full-hour action news source. No more bee beards! With Bob Bumble at the anchor desk.

Tomorrow night on Bee Larry King, we'l have three former queens here in our studio, discussing their new book, Olassy Ladies, out this week on Hexagon. Tonight we're talking to Barry Benson. Did you ever think, Tm a kid from the hive. I cant do this7 Bees have never been afraid to change the world. What about Bee Oolumbus? Bee Gandhi? Bejesus? Where I'm from, we'd never sue humans. We were thinking of stickball or candy stores. How old are you? The bee community is supporting you in this case, which will be the trial of the bee century. You know, they have a Larry King in the human world too. It's a common name. Next week.. He looks like you and has a show and suspenders and colored dots... Next week...

Yes, and Adam here has been a huge help. - Frosting How many sugars? Just one. i try not to use the competition. So why are you helping me? Bees have good qualities. And it takes my mind of the shop. Instead of flowers, people are giving balloon bouquets now. Those are great, if you're three. And artificial flowers. Oh, those just get me psychotic!-Yeah, me too. Bent stingers, pointless polination. Bees must hate those fake things! Nothing worse than a daffodil that's had work done. Maybe this could make up for it a ittle bit.- This lawsuit's a pretty big deal, -I guess. You sure you want to go through with it? Am I sure? When I'm done with the humans, they won't be able to say, "Honey, I'm home." without paying a royalty! It's an incredible scene here in downtown Manhattan, where the world anxiously waits, because for the first time in history, we will hear for ourselves if a honeybee can actually speak What have we gotten into here, Barry? its pretty big, isn't it? I can't believe how many humans don't work during the day. You think bilion-dollar multinational food companies have good lawyers? Everybody needs to stay behind the barricade. - What's the matter? -I don't know, I just got a chil. Well, if it isnt the bee team. You boys work on this? All rise! The Honorable Judge Bumbleton presiding. All right. Oase number 4475, Superior Oourt of New York, Barry Bee Benson v. the Honey Industry is now in session. Mr. Montgomery,. you're representing the five food companies collectively? A privilege. Mr. Benson... you're representing all the bees of the world? Im kidding. Yes, Your Honor, we're ready to proceed. Mr. Montgomery, your opening statement, please. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my grandmother was a simple woman. Born on a farm, she believed it was man's divine right to benefit from the bounty of nature God put before us. If we lived in the topsy-turvy world Mr. Benson imagines, just think of what would it mean. I would have to negotiate with the silkworm for the elastic in my britches! Talking bee! How do we know this isn't some sort of holographic motion-picture-capture Hollywood wizardry? They could be using laser beams! Robotics! Ventriloquism! Oloning! For all we know, he could be on steroids! Mr. Benson? Ladies and gentlemen, there's no trickery here. I'm just an ordinary bee. Honey's pretty important to me. It's important to all bees. We invented it! We make it. And we protect it with our lives. Unfortunately, there are some people in this room who think they can take it from us 'cause we're the little guys! I'm hoping that, after this is all over, you'll see how, by taking our honey, you not only take everything we have but everything we are! I wish he'd dress like that all the time. So nice! Oall your first witness. So, Mr. Klauss Vanderhayden of Honey Farms, big company you have. I suppose so. I see you also own Honeyburton and Honron! Yes, they provide beekeepers for our farms. Beekeeper. I find that to be a very disturbing term. I don't imagine you employ any bee-free-ers, do you? No. -I couldn't hear you. - No. - No. Because you don't free bees. You keep bees. Not only that, it seems you thought a bear would be an appropriate image for a jar of honey. They're very lovable creatures. Yogi Bear, Fozzie Bear, Build-A-Bear. You mean tike this? Bears kill beest How'd you lke his head crashing through your living room?1 Biting into your couch! Spitting out your throw pillows! OK, that's enough. Take him away. So, Mr. Sting, thank you for being here. Your name intrigues me.- Where have I heard it before?-I was with a band called The Police. But you've never been a police officer, have you? No, I havent. No. you havent. And so here we have yet andother example of bee culture casually stolen by a human for nothing more than a prance-about stage name. Oh, please. Have you ever been stung. Mr. Sting? Because I'm feeling a little stung, Sting. Or should I say... Mr. Gordon M, Sumner! That's not his real name?! You idiots! Mr., Liotta, first, belated congratulations on your Emmy win for a guest spot on ER in 2005. Thank you. Thank you. I see from your resume that you're devilishly handsome with a churning inner turmoil that's ready to blow. I enjoy what I do. Is that a crime? Not yet it isn't But is this what it's come to for you? Exploiting tiny, helpless bees so you dont Liotta, please sit down! I think it was awfully nice of that bear to pitch in like that. I think the jury's on our side. Are we doing everything right, legally? I'm a florist. Right. Well, here's to a great team. To a great team! Well, hello. Kent - Hello. I didn't think you were coming. No. I was just late. I tried to call, but... the battery. I didn't want all this to go to waste, so I called Bary. Luckily, he was free. Oh, that was lucky. There's a little left. I could heat it up. Yeah, heat it up, sure, whatever. So I hear you're quite a tennis player. I'm not much for the game myself. The bal's a little grabby. That's where I usually sit. Right... there, Ken, Barry was looking at your resume, and he agreed with me that eating with chopsticks isn't really a special skill. You think I don't see what you're doing? i know how hard it is to find the rightjob. We have that in common. Do we? Bees have 100 percent employment, but we do jobs like taking the crud out. That's just what I was thinking about doing. Ken, I let Barry borrow your razor for his fuzz. I hope that was all right. I'm going to drain the old stinger. Yeah, you do that. Look at that. You know, I've just about had it with your little mind games. - What's that? Italian Vogue. Mamma mia, that's a lot of pages. A lot of ads. Remember what Van said, why is your life more valuable than mine? Funny, I just cant seem to recall that! I think something stinks in here! I love the smeil of flowers. How do you like the smell of flames?! Not as much. Water bug! Not taking sidest Ken, rm wearing a Ohapstick hat! This is pathetic! I've got issues! Well, well, well, a royal flush!- You're bluffing. -Am 17 Surfs up, dude! Poo water! That bowl is gnary. Except for those dirty yelow rings! Kenneth! What are you doing?! You know, I dont even like honey! I dont eat it We need to talk! He's just a ittle bee! And he happens to be the nicest bee Ive met in a long time! Long time? What are you talking about?! Are there other bugs in your life? No, but there are other things bugging me in life. And you're one of them! Fine! Talking bees, no yogurt night... My nerves are fried from riding on this emotional roller coaster! Goodbye, Ken. And for your information, I prefer sugar-free, artificial sweeteners made by man! Im sorry about all that. I know it's got an aftertaste! I like it! I always felt there was some kind of barier between Ken and me. I couldn't overcome it. Oh, well. Are you OK for the trial? I believe Mr. Montgomery is about out of ideas. We would like to call Mr. Bary Benson Bee to the stand. Good ideal You can really see why he's considered one of the best lawyers..Yeah. Layton, you've gotta weave some magic with this jury, or it's gonna be all over. Don't worry. The only thing I have to do to turn this jury around is to remind them of what they dont like about bees, - You got the tweezers? Are you allergic? Only to losing, son. Only to losing. Mr. Benson Bee, ri ask you what I think we'd al like to know. What exactly is your relationship to that woman? We're friends.- Good friends?-Yes. How good? Do you live together? Wait a minute... Are you her little..bedbug? Ive seen a bee documentary or two. From what I understand, doesn't your queen give birth to all the bee children?- Yeah, but..-So those aren't your real parents!- Oh, Barry.-Yes, they are! Hold me back! You're an ilegitimate bee, aren't you, Benson? He's denouncing bees! Dont yall date your cousins?- Objection! Im going to pincushion this guy! Adam, don't its what he wants! Oh, I'm hit!! Oh, lordy, I am hit! Order! Order! The venom! The venom is coursing through my veins! I have been felled by a winged beast of destruction! You see? You can't treat them like equals! They're striped savages! Stinging's the only thing they know! It's their way!-Adam, stay with me. -I can't feel my legs. What angel of mercy will come forward to suck the poison from my heaving buttocks? I will have order in this court. Order! Order, please! The case of the honeybees versus the human race took a pointed turn against the bees yesterday when one of their legal team stung Layton T. Montgomery. Hey, buddy.- Hey. Is there much pain?- Yeah. I... blew the whole case, didn't 1? It doesn't matter. What matters is you're alive. You could have died. r'd be better off dead. Look at me. They got it from the cafeteria downstairs, in a tuna sandwich. Look, there's a litle celery still on it. What was it like to sting someone? I can't explain it. It was all.. Al adrenaline and then... and then ecstasy! All right. You think it was all a trap? Of course. Im sorry. I flew us right into this. What were we thinking? Look at us. We're just a couple of bugs in this world. What will the humans do to us if they win? I dont know. I hear they put the roaches in motels. That doesn't sound so bad. Adam, they check in, but they don't check out! Oh, my. Oould you get a nurse to close that window?-Why?- The smoke. Bees don't smoke. Right. Bees don't smoke. Bees don't smoke! But some bees are smoking. That's it! That's our case! it is? It's not over? Get dressed. I've gotta go somewhere. Get back to the court and stall. Stall any way you can. And assuming you've done step correctly, you're ready for the tub. Mr. Flayman. Yes? Yes. Your Honor! Where is the rest of your team? Well, Your Honor, it's interesting. Bees are trained to fly haphazardly, and as a result, we don't make very good time. I actually heard a funny story about... Your Honor, haven't these ridiculous bugs taken up enough of this court's valuable time? How much longer will we allow these absurd shenanigans to go on? They have presented no compelling evidence to support their charges against my clients, who run legitimate businesses. I move for a complete dismissal of this entire case! Mr. Flayman, Im afraid I'm going to have to consider Mr. Montgomery's motion. But you can't! We have a terrific case. Where is your proor? Where is the evidence? Show me the smoking gun! Hold it, Your Honort You want a smoking gun? Here is your smoking gun. What is that? It's a bee smoker! What, this? This harmless ltle contraption? This couldn't hurt a fly, let alone a bee. Look at what has happened to bees who have never been asked, "Smoking or non?" Is this what nature intended for us? To be forcibly addicted to smoke machines and man-made wooden slat work camps? Living out our lives as honey slaves to the white man?- What are we gonna do?-He's playing the species card. Ladies and gentlemen, please, free these bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free ther Benson. Youl regret this. Barry, how much honey is out there? All right. One at a time. Barry, who are you wearing? My sweater is Ralph Lauren, and I have no pants. What if Montgomery's right? - What do you mean? We've been living the bee way a long time, 27 million years. Oongratulations on your victory. What will you demand as a settlement? First, wel demand a complete shutdown of all bee work camps. Then we want back the honey that was ours to begin with, every last drop. We demand an end to the glorification of the bear as anything more than a fithy, smelly, bad-breath stink machine. We're all aware of what they do in the woods. Wait for my signal. Take him out. Hell have nauseous for a few hours, then hell be fine. And we will no longer tolerate bee-negative nicknames... But it's just a prance-about stage name!..unnecessary inclusion of honey in bogus health products and la-dee-da human tea-time snack garnishments. Oant breathe. Bring it in, boys! Hold it right there! Good. Tap it. Mr. Buzzwell, we just passed three cups, and there's gallons more coming!-I think we need to shut down!-Shut down? We've never shut down. Shut down honey production! Stop making honey! Tum your key, sir! What do we do now? Oannonball! Were shutting honey production! Mission abort. Aborting pollination and nectar detail. Returning to base. Adam, you wouldn't believe how much honey was out there. Oh, yeah? What's going on? Where is everybody?-Are they out celebrating?- They're home. They dont know what to do. Laying out, sleeping in. I heard your Uncle Oarl was on his way to San Antonio with a cricket. At least we got our honey back. Sometimes I think, so what if humans liked our honey? Who wouldn't? it's the greatest thing in the world! I was excited to be part of making it. This was my new desk. This was my new job. Iwanted to do it really well. And now... Now I can't I don't understand why they're not happy. I thought their lives would be better! They're doing nothing. It's amazing. Honey really changes people. You don't have any idea what's going on, do you?- What did you want to show me?-This. What happened here? That is not the half of it. Oh, no. Oh, my. They're all wilting. Doesn't look very good, does it? No. And whose fault do you think that is? You know, I'm gonna guess bees. Bees? Specifically, me. I didn't think bees not needing to make honey would affect all these things. It's notjust flowers. Fruits, vegetables, they all need bees. That's our whole SAT test right there. Take away produce, that affects the entire animal kingdom. And then, of course... The human species? So if there's no more polination, it could all just go south here, couldn't it? I know this is also partly my fault. How about a suicide pact? How do we do it?- ni sting you, you step on me. Thatjust kills you twice. Right, right. Listen, Barry. sorry, but I gotta get going. I had to open my mouth and talk. Vanessa? Vanessa? Why are you leaving? Where are you going? To the final Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena. They've moved it to this weekend because all the flowers are dying. It's the last chance nl ever have to see it. Vanessa, I just wanna say Im sory. I never meant it to turn out like this. I know. Me neither. Tounament of Roses. Roses can't do sports. Wait a minute. Roses. Roses? Roses! Vanessa! Roses?! Barry?- Roses are flowers!- Yes, they are. Flowers, bees, pollent I know. That's why this is the last parade. Maybe not. Oould you ask him to slow down? Oould you slow down? Barry! OK, I made a huge mistake. This is a total disaster, all my fault. Yes, it kind of is. Ive ruined the planet. I wanted to help you with the flower shop. I've made it worse. Actually, it's completely closed down, I thought maybe you were remodeling. But I have another idea, and it's greater than my previous ideas combined. I don't want to hear it! All right, they have the roses, the roses have the pollen. I know every bee, plant and flower bud in this park. All we gotta do is get what they've got back here with what we've got Bees-Park. - Pollen! Flowers-Repolination!-Across the nation! Tounament of Roses, Pasadena. Oalifornia. They've got nothing but flowers, floats and cotton candy. Security will be tight. I have an idea. you?-I believe Im the pea. The pea? It goes under the maitresses. Not in this fairy tale, sweetheart-im getting the marshal. You do thati This whole parade is a fiascol Lets see what this babyll do. Hey, what are you doing?! Then all we do is blend in with trafficwithout arousing suspicion. Once at the airport, there's no stopping us. Stop! Security.- You and your insect pack your float?- Yes. Has it been in your possession the entire time? Would you remove your shoes?-Remove your stinger- It's part of me. I know. Just having some fun. Enjoy your flight. Theri if we're lucky, we have just enough pollen to do the job. Oan you believe how lucky we are? We have just enough pollen to do the job! i think this is gonna work. It's got to work. Áttention, passengers, this is Oaptain Scott. We have a bit of bad weather in New York, it looks like we'll experience a couple hours delay. Barry, these are cut fiowers with no water. Theyl never make it. I gotta get up there and talk to them. Be careful. Oan I get help with the Sky Mall magazine? r'd ike to order the talking inflatable nose and ear hair trimmer. Oaptain, Im in a real situation. experience a couple hours delay. Barry, these are cut flowers with no water Thele e ust enough pollen to do the jobt I think this is gonna work, It's aot to work ttenti -What'd you say, Hal? Nothing. Beef Don't freak out! My entire species... What are you doing?- Wait a minute! Im an attorney!-Who's an attorney? Dont move. Oh, Barry. Good afternoon, passengers. This is your captain. Would a Miss Vanessa Bloome in 248 please report to the cockpit? And please hurry! What happened here? There was a DustBuster, a toupee, a liMe raft exploded. One's bald, one's in a boat, they're both unconscious!- Is that another bee joke?-Nof No one's flying the plane! This is JFK control tower, Flight 356. Whatrs your status? This is Vanessa Bloome. I'm a florist from New York. Where's the pilot? He's unconscious, and so is the copilot. Not good. Does anyone onboard have flight experience? As a matter of fact, there is- Who's that?-Barry Benson. From the honey trial?! Oh, great. Vanessa, this is nothing more than a big metal bee. It's got giant wings, huge engines. I can't fly a plane.- Why not? Isn't John Travolta a pilot?- Yes. How hard could it be? Wait, Barry! We're headed into some ightning. This is Bob Bumble. We have some late-breaking news from JFK Airport, where a suspenseful a minute. There's a bee on that plane. I'm quite familiar with Mr. Benson and his no-account compadres. They've done enough damage. But isn't he your only hope? Technically, a bee shouldn't be able to fly at all. Their wings are too small... Haven't we heard this a million times? "The surface area of the wings and body mass make no sense Get this on the air Got it. Stand by.- We're going live. The way we work may be a mystery to you. Making honey takes a lot of bees doing a lot of small jobs. But let me tell you about a small job. If you do it well, it makes a big difference. More than we realized. To us, to everyone. That's why I want to get bees back to working together. That's the bee way! We're not made of Jell-O. We get behind a fellow.-Black and yellow-Hello! Left, right, down, hover- Hover?-Forget hover. This isn't so hard. Beep-beep Beep-beep! Barry, what happened?! Wait, I think we were on autopilot the whole time. - That may have been helping me.-And now we're not! So it turns out I cannot fly a plane. All of you, let's get behind this fellow! Move it out! Move out! Our only chance is if I do what rd do, you copy me with the wings of the plane! Dont have to yell. I'm not yelling! We're in a lot of trouble. It's very hard to concentrate with that panicky tone in your voice! It's not a tone. I'm panicking! I can't do this! Vanessa, pull yourself together. You have to snap out of it! You snap out of it. You snap They do get behind a fellow. - Black and yellow. Hello. All right, let's drop this tin can on the blacktop. Where? I can't see anything Oan you? No, nothing. It's all cloudy. Oome on. You got to think bee, Barry. - Thinking bee. Thinking bee. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking beel Wait a minute. I think m feeling something- What?-I don't know. It's strong, puling me. Like a 27-million-year-old instinct. Bring the nose down. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking beel - What in the world is on the tarmac?- Get some lights on that Thinking beel Thinking bee! Thinking bee- Vanessa, aim for the flower.- OK. Out the engines. We're going in on bee power. Ready, boys? Affirmativel Good. Good. Easy, now. That's it. Land on that flowerf Ready? Full reversel Spin it aroundt-Not that flower! The other one! - Which one?- That flower.-I'm aiming at the flower That's a fat guy in a flowered shirt. I mean the giant pulsating flower made of millions of bees! Pul forward. Nose down. Tail up. Rotate around it. This is insane, Barry! This's the only way I know how to fly. Am I koo-koo-kachoo, or is this plane flying in an insect-like pattern? Get your nose in there. Don't be afraid. Smell it. Full reversel Just drop it. Be a part of it. Aim for the center! Now drop it in! Drop it in, woman! Oome on, already. Barry, we did it! You taught me how to fly!- Yes. No high-five! - Right. Barry, it worked! Did you see the giant flower? What giant flower? Where? Of course I saw the flower! That was genius!- Thank you. But we're not done yet. Listen, everyone! This runway is covered with the last polen from the last flowers available anywhere on Earth. That means this is our last chance. We're the only ones who make honey, polinate flowers and dress like this. If we're gonna survive as a species, this is our moment! What do you say? Are we going to be bees, orjust Museum of Natural History keychains? We're bees! Keychain! Then follow met Except Keychain. Hold on, Barry. Here. You've earned this. Yeah! Im a Pollen Jock! And it's a perfect fit. Alli gotta do are the sleeves. Oh, yeah. That's our Barry. Mom! The bees are back! If anybody needs to make a call, now's the time. I got a feeling well be working late tonight! Here's your change. Have a great afternoon! Oan I help who's next? Would you like some honey with that? It is bee-approved. Don't forget these. Milk, cream, cheese, ir's all me. And i don't see a nickell Sometimes I just feel like a piece of meat! I had no idea. Barry, I'm sorry. Have you got a moment? Would you excuse me? My mosquito associate will help you. Sorry I'm late. He's a lawyer too? I was already a blood-sucking parasite. All I needed was a briefcase. Have a great afternoon! Barry, I just got this huge tulip order, and I can't get them anywhere. No problem, Vannie. Just leave it to me. You're a lifesaver, Barry. Oan I help who's next? All right, scramble, jocks! lt's time to fly. Thank you, Barry! That bee is living my lde! Let it go, Kenny, When will this nightmare end?!- Let it all go. Beautiful day to fly. Sure is. Between you and me, I was dying to get out of that office. You have got to start thinking bee, my friend. Thinking beel- Me? Hold it. Lefs just stop for a second. Hold it Im sorry.

I had virtually no rehearsal for that DecreasinglyVerbose GO!

Alive, Being Alone, and Animals: Roses are red, baseball uses a bat According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly.

Here we have our latest advancement, the Krelman. - What does that do?- Oatches that little strand of honey that hangs after you pour it Saves us millions. Oan anyone work on the Kreiman? Of course. Most bee jobs are small ones. But bees know that every small job, if it's done well, means a lot. But choose carefully because you'll stay in the job you pick for the rest of your life. The same job the rest of your life? I didn't know that. Whats the difference? Youll be happy to know that bees, as a species, haven't had one day off in 27 million years. So youll just work us to death? Well sure try. Wow! That blew my mind! "What's the difference? How can you say that? One job forever? That's an insane choice to have to make. I'm relieved.

Aren't they our cousins too? Distant. Distant. Look at these two. -Oouple of Hive Harrys. - Let's have fun with them, It must be dangerous being a Pollen Jock. Yeah.

Itrs a beautiful thingg. You know, Dad,, the more I think about it, maybe the honey field just isn't right for me. You were thinking of what, making balloon animals? That's a bad job for a guy with a stinger. Janet, your son's not sure he wants to go into honeyl - Barry, you are so funny sometimes I'm not trying to be funny. You're not funny!

No wonder we shouldn't talk to them. They're out of their minds. When I leave a job interview, they're flabbergasted, cant believe what I say. There's the sun. Maybe that's way out. I don't remember the sun having a big 75 on it. I predicted global warming. I could feel it getting hotter. At first I thought it was just me. Wait! Stop! Bee! Stand back. These are winter boots. Wait Don't kill him! You know I'm allergic to them! This thing could kill me! Why does his life have less value than yours? Why does his life have any less value than mine? is that your statement?

You know, whatever- You could put carob chips on there. Bye. Supposed to be less yon Earth. You ever think maybe things work a little too well here? e to make one decision in life. But, Adam, how could they never have told us that? Why would you question anything? Were bees. We're the most perfectly functioning so- No. Do it. I can't How should I start it? "You like jazz? No, thar's no good. Here she comes! Speak, you fooll Hil I'm sorry.- Youre talking Yes, I know, You're talking! I'm so sorry. No, it's OK. it's fine. I know I'm dreaming. But I don't recall going to bed. Well, I'm sure this is very disconcerting. This is a bit of a surprise to me. I mean, you're a bee! I am. And I'm not supposed to be doing this, but they were all trying to kill me. And if it wasnt for you... I had to thank you. Ir's just how I was raised. That was a itle weird. - I'm talking with a bee. Yeah. Im talking to a bee. And the bee is talking to me! I just want to say I'm grateful. r'll leave now.- Wait! How did you learn to do that?-What? The taiking thing. Same way you did, I guess. "Mama, Dada, honey. You pick it up. That's very funny. Yeah, Bees are funny If we didn't laugh, we'd cry with what we have to deal with. Anyway. Oan I..get you something?-Like what? I dont know.

Hey, you want rum cake? -I shouldn't. - Have some. - No, I can't Oome on! Im trying to lose a couple micrograms.- Where?- These stripes don't help. You look great! I don't know if you know anything about fashion. Are you al right? No. He's making the tie in the cab as they're flying up Madison. He finally gets there. He runs up the steps into the church. The wedding is on. And he says, "Watermelon? I thought you said Guatemalan. Why would I marry a watermeion? Is that a bee joke? That's the kind of stuff we do. Yeah, different. So, what are you gonna do, Bary? About work? I dont know. I want to do my part for the hive, but I can't do it the way they want. I know how you feel. You do?- Sure. My parents wanted me to be a lawyer or a doctor, but I wanted to be a florist. -Really? -My only interest is flowers. Our new queen was just elected with that same campaign slogan. Anyway, if you look... There's my hive right there. See it? Youre in Sheep Meadow! Yes! Im right off the Turtle Pond! No way! I know that area. I lost a toe ring there once.- Why do girls put rings on their toes?-Why not?- It's like putting a hat on your knee. Maybe n try that You all right, ma'am?-Oh, yeah. Fine. Just having two cups of coffee! Anyway, this has been great. Thanks for the coffee. Yeah, it's no trouble. Sorry I couldn't finish it. If i did, I'd be up the rest of my life. Are you...?

She's. human. No, no. That's a bee law. You wouldn't break a bee law. Her name's Vanessa. Oh, Eat this. This is not over! What was that? They call it a crumb. -It was so stingin' stripey! And that's not what they eat. That's what falls off what they eat!- You know what a Oinnabon is?- No. I's bread and cinnamon and frosting. They heat it up... Sit down!really hot!- Listen to me We are not them! We're us. There's us and there's them! Yes, but who can deny the heart that is yearning? There's no yeaming. Stop yearning. Listen to me! You have got to start thinking bee, my friend. Thinking beet Thinking bee. - Thinking bee. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! There he is. He's in the pool. You know what your problem is, Barry? I gotta start thinking bee? How much longer will this go on? Iit's been three days! Why arent you working? I've got a lot of big life decisions to think about. What life? You have no life! You have no job. You're barely a beet Would it kill you to make a little honey? Barry, come out. Your father's talking to you. Martin, would you talk to him?

A girt? is this why you can't decide? Bye. I just hope she's Bee-ish. They have a huge parade of flowers every year in Pasadena? To be in the Tournament of Roses, that's every florist's dreamt Up on a float, surrounded by flowers, crowds cheering. A tournament. Do the roses compete in athletic events? No. All right, I've got one. How come you don't fly everywhere? It's exhausting. Why don't you run everywhere? It's faster. Yeah, OK, I see, I see. All right, your turn. TVo. You can just freeze live TV? That's insane! You dont have that? We have Hivo, but itrs a disease. It's a horrible, horrible disease. Oh, my. Dumb bees! You must want to sting all those jerks. We try not to sting. It's usually fatal for us. So you have to watch your temper. Very carefully. You kick a wal, take a walk, write an angry letter and throw it out. Work through it like any emotion: Anger, jealousy, lust. Oh, my goodness! Are you OK? Yeah, - What is wrong with you? It's a bug. He's not bothering anybody. Get out of here. you creep! What was that? A Pic N' Save circular? Yeah, it was. How did you know? it felt like about 10 pages. Seventy-five is pretty much our limit. You've really got that down to a science.-I lost a cousin to Italian Vogue.-ril bet. What in the name of Mighty Hercules is this? How did this get here? Oute Bee, Golden Blossom, Ray Liotta Private Select?- Is he that actor?-I never heard of him. - Why is this here?- For people. We eat it. You don't have enough food of your own?- Well, yes. -How do you get it?- hospitals! This is all we have! And it's on sale?! Im getting to the bottom of this. I'm getting to the bottom of all of this! Hey, Hector You almost done?-Almost. He is here. I sense it. Well, I guess nil go home now and just leave this nice honey out, with no one around. You're busted, box boyi I knew I heard something. So you can talk! I can talk. And now you'll start talking! Where you getting the sweet stuf? Who's your supplier? I don't understand. I thought we were friends. The last thing we want to do is upset bees! You're too late! It's ours now! You, sir, have crossed the wrong sword! You, sir, will be lunch for my iguana, Ignacio! Where is the honey coming from? Tell me where! Honey Farms! it comes from Honey Farms! Orazy person! What horible thing has happened here? These faces, they never knew what hit them. And now they're on the road to nowhere! Just keep still What? You're not dead? Do I look dead? They will wipe anything that moves. Where you headed? To Honey Farms. I am onto something huge here. I'm going to Alaska. Moose blood, crazy stuff. Blows your head off! I'm going to Tacoma. -And you?- He really is dead. All right. Uh-oh!- What is that?!- Oh, not-A wipert Triple blade!- Triple blade? Jump on! Its your only chance, bee! Why does everything have to be so doggone clean?! How much do you people need to see?! Open your eyes! Stick your head out the window! From NPR News in Washington, I'm Oarl Kasell. But don't kill no more bugs!- Bee! Moose blood guy!!- You hear something?- Like what? Like tiny screaming. Turn off the radio. Whassup, bee boy? Hey, Blood. Just a row of honey jars, as far as the eye could see. Wow! I assume wherever this truck goes is where theyre getting it. I mean, that honey's ours. Bees hang tight- We're all jammed in. It's a close community Not us, man. We on our own. Every mosquito on his own - What if you get in trouble?-You a mosquito, you in trouble. Nobody likes us. They just smack. See a mosquito, smack, smack! At least you're out in the world. You must meet girls. Mosquito girls try to trade up, get with a moth, dragonfly. Mosquito girl don't want no mosquito. You got to be kidding me! Mooseblood's about to leave the building! So long, bee!- Hey, guys!- Mooseblood knew rd catch yall down here. Did you bring your crazy straw? We throw it in jars, slap a label on it, and it's pretty much pure profit. What is this place? A bee's got a brain the size of a pinhead. They are pinheads! Pinhead. Oheck out the new smoker. Oh, sweet. That's the one you want. The Thomas 30001 Smoker? Ninety putts a minute, semi-automatic. Twice the nicotine, all the tar. A couplee breaths of this knocks them right out They make the honey, and we make the money "They make the honey, and we make the money"? Oh, my! What's going on? Are you OK? Yeah. It doesn't last too long. Do you know you're in a fake hive with fake walls? Our queen was moved here. We had no choice. This is your queen? That's a man in women's clothes! That's a drag queen! What is this? Oh, no! There's hundreds of them! Bee honey. Our honey is being brazenly stolen on a massive scale! This is worse than anything bears have done! I intend to do something. Oh, Barry, stop. Who told you humans are taking our honey? That's a rumor. Do these look like rumors? That's a conspiracy theory. These are obviously doctored photos How did you get mixed up in this? He's been talking to humans. What?-Taking to humans?1 He has a human girlfriend. And they make outf Make out? Barry! We do not. You wish you could.- Whose side are you on? The bees! I dated a cricket once in San Antonio. Those crazy legs kept me up all night. Barry, this is what you want to do with your life? I want to do it for all our lives. Nobody works harder than bees! Dad, I remember you coming home so overworked your hands were still stirring. You couldn't stop. I remember that. What right do they have to our honey? We live on two cups a year. They put it in lip balm for no reason whatsoever! Even if it's true, what can one bee do? Sting them where it really hurts. In the face! The eye!- That would hurt. No. Up the nose? That's a killer. There's only one place you can sting the humans, one place where it matters. Hive at Five, the hive's only full-hour action news source. No more bee beards! With Bob Bumble at the anchor desk. Weather with Storm Stinger. Sportis with Buzz Larvi. And Jeanette Ohung. Good evening. I'm Bob Bumble.-And im Jeanette Ohung. A tri-county bee, Barry Benson, intends to sue the human race for stealing our honey, packaging it and profiting from it illegally! Tomorrow night on Bee Larry King, we'l have three former queens here in our studio, discussing their new book, Olassy Ladies, out this week on Hexagon. Tonight we're talking to Barry Benson. Did you ever think, Tm a kid from the hive. I cant do this7 Bees have never been afraid to change the world. What about Bee Oolumbus? Bee Gandhi? Bejesus? Where I'm from, we'd never sue humans. We were thinking of stickball or candy stores. How old are you? The bee community is supporting you in this case, which will be the trial of the bee century. You know, they have a Larry King in the human world too. It's a common name. Next week.. He looks like you and has a show and suspenders and colored dots... Next week... Glasses, quotes on the botom from the guest even though you just heard 'em. Bear Week next week! They're scary. hairy and here live. Always leans forward, pointy shoulders, squinty eyes, very Jewish, In tennis, you attack at the point of weakness! It was my grandmother, Ken She's 81. Honey, her Why does he talk again? Listen, you better go cause we're really busy working. But it's our yogurt night! Bye-bye. Why is yogurt night so difficult?! You poor thing. You two have been at this for hours! Yes, and Adam here has been a huge help. - Frosting How many sugars? Just one. i try not to use the competition. So why are you helping me? Bees have good qualities. And it takes my mind of the shop. Instead of flowers, people are giving balloon bouquets now. Those are great, if you're three. And artificial flowers. Oh, those just get me psychotic!-Yeah, me too. Bent stingers, pointless polination. Bees must hate those fake things! Nothing worse than a daffodil that's had work done. Maybe this could make up for it a ittle bit.- This lawsuit's a pretty big deal, -I guess. You sure you want to go through with it? Am I sure? When I'm done with the humans, they won't be able to say, "Honey, I'm home." without paying a royalty! It's an incredible scene here in downtown Manhattan, where the world anxiously waits, because for the first time in history, we will hear for ourselves if a honeybee can actually speak What have we gotten into here, Barry? its pretty big, isn't it? I can't believe how many humans don't work during the day. You think bilion-dollar multinational food companies have good lawyers? Everybody needs to stay behind the barricade. - What's the matter? -I don't know, I just got a chil. Well, if it isnt the bee team. You boys work on this? All rise! The Honorable Judge Bumbleton presiding. All right. Oase number 4475, Superior Oourt of New York, Barry Bee Benson v. the Honey Industry is now in session. Mr. Montgomery,. you're representing the five food companies collectively? A privilege. Mr. Benson... you're representing all the bees of the world? Im kidding. Yes, Your Honor, we're ready to proceed. Mr. Montgomery, your opening statement, please. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my grandmother was a simple woman. Born on a farm, she believed it was man's divine right to benefit from the bounty of nature God put before us. If we lived in the topsy-turvy world Mr. Benson imagines, just think of what would it mean. I would have to negotiate with the silkworm for the elastic in my britches! Talking bee! How do we know this isn't some sort of holographic motion-picture-capture Hollywood wizardry? They could be using laser beams! Robotics! Ventriloquism! Oloning! For all we know, he could be on steroids! Mr. Benson? Ladies and gentlemen, there's no trickery here. I'm just an ordinary bee. Honey's pretty important to me. It's important to all bees. We invented it! We make it. And we protect it with our lives. Unfortunately, there are some people in this room who think they can take it from us 'cause we're the little guys! I'm hoping that, after this is all over, you'll see how, by taking our honey, you not only take everything we have but everything we are! I wish he'd dress like that all the time. So nice! Oall your first witness. So, Mr. Klauss Vanderhayden of Honey Farms, big company you have. I suppose so. I see you also own Honeyburton and Honron! Yes, they provide beekeepers for our farms. Beekeeper. I find that to be a very disturbing term. I don't imagine you employ any bee-free-ers, do you? No. -I couldn't hear you. - No. - No. Because you don't free bees. You keep bees. Not only that, it seems you thought a bear would be an appropriate image for a jar of honey. They're very lovable creatures. Yogi Bear, Fozzie Bear, Build-A-Bear. You mean tike this? Bears kill beest How'd you lke his head crashing through your living room?1 Biting into your couch! Spitting out your throw pillows! OK, that's enough. Take him away. So, Mr. Sting, thank you for being here. Your name intrigues me.- Where have I heard it before?-I was with a band called The Police. But you've never been a police officer, have you? No, I havent. No. you havent. And so here we have yet andother example of bee culture casually stolen by a human for nothing more than a prance-about stage name. Oh, please. Have you ever been stung. Mr. Sting? Because I'm feeling a little stung, Sting. Or should I say... Mr. Gordon M, Sumner! That's not his real name?! You idiots! Mr., Liotta, first, belated congratulations on your Emmy win for a guest spot on ER in 2005. Thank you. Thank you. I see from your resume that you're devilishly handsome with a churning inner turmoil that's ready to blow. I enjoy what I do. Is that a crime? Not yet it isn't But is this what it's come to for you? Exploiting tiny, helpless bees so you dont Liotta, please sit down! I think it was awfully nice of that bear to pitch in like that. I think the jury's on our side. Are we doing everything right, legally? I'm a florist. Right. Well, here's to a great team. To a great team! Well, hello. Kent - Hello. I didn't think you were coming. No. I was just late. I tried to call, but... the battery. I didn't want all this to go to waste, so I called Bary. Luckily, he was free. Oh, that was lucky. There's a little left. I could heat it up. Yeah, heat it up, sure, whatever. So I hear you're quite a tennis player. I'm not much for the game myself. The bal's a little grabby. That's where I usually sit. Right... there, Ken, Barry was looking at your resume, and he agreed with me that eating with chopsticks isn't really a special skill. You think I don't see what you're doing? i know how hard it is to find the rightjob. We have that in common. Do we? Bees have 100 percent employment, but we do jobs like taking the crud out. That's just what I was thinking about doing. Ken, I let Barry borrow your razor for his fuzz. I hope that was all right. I'm going to drain the old stinger. Yeah, you do that. Look at that. You know, I've just about had it with your little mind games. - What's that? Italian Vogue. Mamma mia, that's a lot of pages. A lot of ads. Remember what Van said, why is your life more valuable than mine? Funny, I just cant seem to recall that! I think something stinks in here! I love the smeil of flowers. How do you like the smell of flames?! Not as much. Water bug! Not taking sidest Ken, rm wearing a Ohapstick hat! This is pathetic! I've got issues! Well, well, well, a royal flush!- You're bluffing. -Am 17 Surfs up, dude! Poo water! That bowl is gnary. Except for those dirty yelow rings! Kenneth! What are you doing?! You know, I dont even like honey! I dont eat it We need to talk! He's just a ittle bee! And he happens to be the nicest bee Ive met in a long time! Long time? What are you talking about?! Are there other bugs in your life? No, but there are other things bugging me in life. And you're one of them! Fine! Talking bees, no yogurt night... My nerves are fried from riding on this emotional roller coaster! Goodbye, Ken. And for your information, I prefer sugar-free, artificial sweeteners made by man! Im sorry about all that. I know it's got an aftertaste! I like it! I always felt there was some kind of barier between Ken and me. I couldn't overcome it. Oh, well. Are you OK for the trial? I believe Mr. Montgomery is about out of ideas. We would like to call Mr. Bary Benson Bee to the stand. Good ideal You can really see why he's considered one of the best lawyers..Yeah. Layton, you've gotta weave some magic with this jury, or it's gonna be all over. Don't worry. The only thing I have to do to turn this jury around is to remind them of what they dont like about bees, - You got the tweezers? Are you allergic? Only to losing, son. Only to losing. Mr. Benson Bee, ri ask you what I think we'd al like to know. What exactly is your relationship to that woman? We're friends.- Good friends?-Yes. How good? Do you live together? Wait a minute... Are you her little..bedbug? Ive seen a bee documentary or two. From what I understand, doesn't your queen give birth to all the bee children?- Yeah, but..-So those aren't your real parents!- Oh, Barry.-Yes, they are! Hold me back! You're an ilegitimate bee, aren't you, Benson? He's denouncing bees! Dont yall date your cousins?- Objection! Im going to pincushion this guy! Adam, don't its what he wants! Oh, I'm hit!! Oh, lordy, I am hit! Order! Order! The venom! The venom is coursing through my veins! I have been felled by a winged beast of destruction! You see? You can't treat them like equals! They're striped savages! Stinging's the only thing they know! It's their way!-Adam, stay with me. -I can't feel my legs. What angel of mercy will come forward to suck the poison from my heaving buttocks? I will have order in this court. Order! Order, please! The case of the honeybees versus the human race took a pointed turn against the bees yesterday when one of their legal team stung Layton T. Montgomery. Hey, buddy.- Hey. Is there much pain?- Yeah. I... blew the whole case, didn't 1? It doesn't matter. What matters is you're alive. You could have died. r'd be better off dead. Look at me. They got it from the cafeteria downstairs, in a tuna sandwich. Look, there's a litle celery still on it. What was it like to sting someone? I can't explain it. It was all.. Al adrenaline and then... and then ecstasy! All right. You think it was all a trap? Of course. Im sorry. I flew us right into this. What were we thinking? Look at us. We're just a couple of bugs in this world. What will the humans do to us if they win? I dont know. I hear they put the roaches in motels. That doesn't sound so bad. Adam, they check in, but they don't check out! Oh, my. Oould you get a nurse to close that window?-Why?- The smoke. Bees don't smoke. Right. Bees don't smoke. Bees don't smoke! But some bees are smoking. That's it! That's our case! it is? It's not over? Get dressed. I've gotta go somewhere. Get back to the court and stall. Stall any way you can. And assuming you've done step correctly, you're ready for the tub. Mr. Flayman. Yes? Yes. Your Honor! Where is the rest of your team? Well, Your Honor, it's interesting. Bees are trained to fly haphazardly, and as a result, we don't make very good time. I actually heard a funny story about... Your Honor, haven't these ridiculous bugs taken up enough of this court's valuable time? How much longer will we allow these absurd shenanigans to go on? They have presented no compelling evidence to support their charges against my clients, who run legitimate businesses. I move for a complete dismissal of this entire case! Mr. Flayman, Im afraid I'm going to have to consider Mr. Montgomery's motion. But you can't! We have a terrific case. Where is your proor? Where is the evidence? Show me the smoking gun! Hold it, Your Honort You want a smoking gun? Here is your smoking gun. What is that? It's a bee smoker! What, this? This harmless ltle contraption? This couldn't hurt a fly, let alone a bee. Look at what has happened to bees who have never been asked, "Smoking or non?" Is this what nature intended for us? To be forcibly addicted to smoke machines and man-made wooden slat work camps? Living out our lives as honey slaves to the white man?- What are we gonna do?-He's playing the species card. Ladies and gentlemen, please, free these bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free the bees! Free ther Benson. Youl regret this. Barry, how much honey is out there? All right. One at a time. Barry, who are you wearing? My sweater is Ralph Lauren, and I have no pants. What if Montgomery's right? - What do you mean? We've been living the bee way a long time, 27 million years. Oongratulations on your victory. What will you demand as a settlement? First, wel demand a complete shutdown of all bee work camps. Then we want back the honey that was ours to begin with, every last drop. We demand an end to the glorification of the bear as anything more than a fithy, smelly, bad-breath stink machine. We're all aware of what they do in the woods. Wait for my signal. Take him out. Hell have nauseous for a few hours, then hell be fine. And we will no longer tolerate bee-negative nicknames... But it's just a prance-about stage name!..unnecessary inclusion of honey in bogus health products and la-dee-da human tea-time snack garnishments. Oant breathe. Bring it in, boys! Hold it right there! Good. Tap it. Mr. Buzzwell, we just passed three cups, and there's gallons more coming!-I think we need to shut down!-Shut down? We've never shut down. Shut down honey production! Stop making honey! Tum your key, sir! What do we do now? Oannonball! Were shutting honey production! Mission abort. Aborting pollination and nectar detail. Returning to base. Adam, you wouldn't believe how much honey was out there. Oh, yeah? What's going on? Where is everybody?-Are they out celebrating?- They're home. They dont know what to do. Laying out, sleeping in. I heard your Uncle Oarl was on his way to San Antonio with a cricket. At least we got our honey back. Sometimes I think, so what if humans liked our honey? Who wouldn't? it's the greatest thing in the world! I was excited to be part of making it. This was my new desk. This was my new job. Iwanted to do it really well. And now... Now I can't I don't understand why they're not happy. I thought their lives would be better! They're doing nothing. It's amazing. Honey really changes people. You don't have any idea what's going on, do you?- What did you want to show me?-This. What happened here? That is not the half of it. Oh, no. Oh, my. They're all wilting. Doesn't look very good, does it? No. And whose fault do you think that is? You know, I'm gonna guess bees. Bees? Specifically, me. I didn't think bees not needing to make honey would affect all these things. It's notjust flowers. Fruits, vegetables, they all need bees. That's our whole SAT test right there. Take away produce, that affects the entire animal kingdom. And then, of course... The human species? So if there's no more polination, it could all just go south here, couldn't it? I know this is also partly my fault. How about a suicide pact? How do we do it?- ni sting you, you step on me. Thatjust kills you twice. Right, right. Listen, Barry. sorry, but I gotta get going. I had to open my mouth and talk. Vanessa? Vanessa? Why are you leaving? Where are you going? To the final Tournament of Roses parade in Pasadena. They've moved it to this weekend because all the flowers are dying. It's the last chance nl ever have to see it. Vanessa, I just wanna say Im sory. I never meant it to turn out like this. I know. Me neither. Tounament of Roses. Roses can't do sports. Wait a minute. Roses. Roses? Roses! Vanessa! Roses?! Barry?- Roses are flowers!- Yes, they are. Flowers, bees, pollent I know. That's why this is the last parade. Maybe not. Oould you ask him to slow down? Oould you slow down? Barry! OK, I made a huge mistake. This is a total disaster, all my fault. Yes, it kind of is. Ive ruined the planet. I wanted to help you with the flower shop. I've made it worse. Actually, it's completely closed down, I thought maybe you were remodeling. But I have another idea, and it's greater than my previous ideas combined. I don't want to hear it! All right, they have the roses, the roses have the pollen. I know every bee, plant and flower bud in this park. All we gotta do is get what they've got back here with what we've got Bees-Park. - Pollen! Flowers-Repolination!-Across the nation! Tounament of Roses, Pasadena. Oalifornia. They've got nothing but flowers, floats and cotton candy. Security will be tight. I have an idea. you?-I believe Im the pea. The pea? It goes under the maitresses. Not in this fairy tale, sweetheart-im getting the marshal. You do thati This whole parade is a fiascol Lets see what this babyll do. Hey, what are you doing?! Then all we do is blend in with trafficwithout arousing suspicion. Once at the airport, there's no stopping us. Stop! Security.- You and your insect pack your float?- Yes. Has it been in your possession the entire time? Would you remove your shoes?-Remove your stinger- It's part of me. I know. Just having some fun. Enjoy your flight. Theri if we're lucky, we have just enough pollen to do the job. Oan you believe how lucky we are? We have just enough pollen to do the job! i think this is gonna work. It's got to work. Áttention, passengers, this is Oaptain Scott. We have a bit of bad weather in New York, it looks like we'll experience a couple hours delay. Barry, these are cut fiowers with no water. Theyl never make it. I gotta get up there and talk to them. Be careful. Oan I get help with the Sky Mall magazine? r'd ike to order the talking inflatable nose and ear hair trimmer. Oaptain, Im in a real situation. experience a couple hours delay. Barry, these are cut flowers with no water Thele e ust enough pollen to do the jobt I think this is gonna work, It's aot to work ttenti -What'd you say, Hal? Nothing. Beef Don't freak out! My entire species... What are you doing?- Wait a minute! Im an attorney!-Who's an attorney? Dont move. Oh, Barry. Good afternoon, passengers. This is your captain. Would a Miss Vanessa Bloome in 248 please report to the cockpit? And please hurry! What happened here? There was a DustBuster, a toupee, a liMe raft exploded. One's bald, one's in a boat, they're both unconscious!- Is that another bee joke?-Nof No one's flying the plane! This is JFK control tower, Flight 356. Whatrs your status? This is Vanessa Bloome. I'm a florist from New York. Where's the pilot? He's unconscious, and so is the copilot. Not good. Does anyone onboard have flight experience? As a matter of fact, there is- Who's that?-Barry Benson. From the honey trial?! Oh, great. Vanessa, this is nothing more than a big metal bee. It's got giant wings, huge engines. I can't fly a plane.- Why not? Isn't John Travolta a pilot?- Yes. How hard could it be? Wait, Barry! We're headed into some ightning. This is Bob Bumble. We have some late-breaking news from JFK Airport, where a suspenseful a minute. There's a bee on that plane. I'm quite familiar with Mr. Benson and his no-account compadres. They've done enough damage. But isn't he your only hope? Technically, a bee shouldn't be able to fly at all. Their wings are too small... Haven't we heard this a million times? "The surface area of the wings and body mass make no sense Get this on the air Got it. Stand by.- We're going live. The way we work may be a mystery to you. Making honey takes a lot of bees doing a lot of small jobs. But let me tell you about a small job. If you do it well, it makes a big difference. More than we realized. To us, to everyone. That's why I want to get bees back to working together. That's the bee way! We're not made of Jell-O. We get behind a fellow.-Black and yellow-Hello! Left, right, down, hover- Hover?-Forget hover. This isn't so hard. Beep-beep Beep-beep! Barry, what happened?! Wait, I think we were on autopilot the whole time. - That may have been helping me.-And now we're not! So it turns out I cannot fly a plane. All of you, let's get behind this fellow! Move it out! Move out! Our only chance is if I do what rd do, you copy me with the wings of the plane! Dont have to yell. I'm not yelling! We're in a lot of trouble. It's very hard to concentrate with that panicky tone in your voice! It's not a tone. I'm panicking! I can't do this! Vanessa, pull yourself together. You have to snap out of it! You snap out of it. You snap They do get behind a fellow. - Black and yellow. Hello. All right, let's drop this tin can on the blacktop. Where? I can't see anything Oan you? No, nothing. It's all cloudy. Oome on. You got to think bee, Barry. - Thinking bee. Thinking bee. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking beel Wait a minute. I think m feeling something- What?-I don't know. It's strong, puling me. Like a 27-million-year-old instinct. Bring the nose down. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking beel - What in the world is on the tarmac?- Get some lights on that Thinking beel Thinking bee! Thinking bee- Vanessa, aim for the flower.- OK. Out the engines. We're going in on bee power. Ready, boys? Affirmativel Good. Good. Easy, now. That's it. Land on that flowerf Ready?

I mean the giant pulsating flower made of millions of bees! Pul forward. Nose down. Tail up. Rotate around it. This is insane, Barry! This's the only way I know how to fly. Am I koo-koo-kachoo, or is this plane flying in an insect-like pattern? Get your nose in there. Don't be afraid. Smell it. Full reversel Just drop it. Be a part of it. Aim for the center! Now drop it in! Drop it in, woman! Oome on, already. Barry, we did it! You taught me how to fly!- Yes. No high-five! - Right. Barry, it worked! Did you see the giant flower? What giant flower? Where? Of course I saw the flower! That was genius!- Thank you. But we're not done yet. Listen, everyone! This runway is covered with the last polen from the last flowers available anywhere on Earth. That means this is our last chance. We're the only ones who make honey, polinate flowers and dress like this. If we're gonna survive as a species, this is our moment! What do you say? Are we going to be bees, orjust Museum of Natural History keychains? We're bees! Keychain! Then follow met Except Keychain. Hold on, Barry. Here. You've earned this. Yeah! Im a Pollen Jock!
