CLOSE on a clump of DIRT being passed from hand to hand.


AZTECA, a feisty, cynical, female worker ant, who stands

there, waiting to pass the dirt on. Z is daydreaming behind

her, with clumps of dirt starting to pile up in front of him.


Hello?! Earth to Z! You better snap

out of it, or there's gonna be a lot

of pissed off ants!

Z looks back, and sees the ants behind staring at him angrily.


(snapping out of it)

Sorry Azteca. Here you go, fellas!

Fresh dirt! Alley oop!

(looking at the dirt)

Shouldn't we be wearing gloves? I

mean this dirt is very...dirty.

Doesn't anyone think of hygiene?

(Z's stomach growls)

Boy am I hungry. I'm so hungry I'm

seeing double. It looks like there's

two million ants in here. When's

lunch? Tomorrow, or the day after?



Z, old pal...


SHUT UP!!! It's bad enough there's

a food shortage without you

complaining about it every day.
