Are you making an offer?

I mean no! I would not!

Havent you heard? The ice is melting!

You see this ground? It's covered in ice

A thousand

years ago it was covered in ice,

A thousand years from now,

it will still be ice!

Say, buddy. not to cast aspersions

on your survival instincts, but,


mammoths pretty much gone extinct?

What are you talking about?

Im talking

about you being the last of your kind!

Ahh! Your breath smells like ants!

Be as that as it may,


the last time you saw another mammoth?

Ah! Don't pay any attention to him Manny

Mammoths can't go extinct,

they are the biggest things on earth!

What about the dinosaurs?

The dinosaurs got cocky!

They made enemies!


some idiot's going down the eviscerator!

Please tell me thats not our cue!

OK, I'm gonna jump on the count of 3!




Don't move a muscle! Were coming up!

What are you doing? Get down from there!

No way! Im going to be

the first to jump off the eviscerator,

And then

you guys are gonna have to start,

showing me some respect!

You jump off this

and the only respect you're gonna get,

I'd think you're afraid of the water,

Ok, Ok! Good thing I know you better!
