Bee Movie

(The guide has been collecting honey into a bottle and she throws it into the crowd on the bus and it is caught by a girl in the back)

That girl was hot.

She's my cousin!

She is?

Yes, we're all cousins.

Right. You're right.

Tour Guide:
At Honex, we constantly strive to improve every aspect of bee existence. These bees are stress-testing a new helmet technology.

(The bus passes by a Bee wearing a helmet who is being smashed into the ground with fly-swatters, newspapers and boots. He lifts a thumbs up but you can hear him groan)

What do you think he makes?

Not enough.

Tour Guide:
Here we have our latest advancement, the Krelman.

(They pass by a turning wheel with Bees standing on pegs, who are each wearing a finger-shaped hat)

Wow, What does that do?

Tour Guide:
Catches that little strand of honey that hangs after you pour it. Saves us millions.

(Intrigued) Can anyone work on the Krelman?

Tour Guide:
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.

(Everyone claps except for Barry)

The same job the rest of your life? I didn't know that.

What's the difference?

Tour Guide:
You'll be happy to know that bees, as a species, haven't had one day off in 27 million years.
