Despite our bonded technology

there are 24 rats for

every man, woman,

and child alive today.

In our country alone,

they will destroy

over one billion dollars

worth of property annually

and consume one fifth

of all the food crops

planted in the world.

So why is the war on

the rat being lost?

Because of our total degradation

of the environment and their presence

serves to remind us of

failures we'd rather ignore.

Oh yes, man has made

the barren valleys bloom

but now there are new

deserts of his own creation.

He's learned to make the

rivers run backwards

and move mountains.

But he has ruined the air and even

threatened the oceans with destruction.

This ecosystem that we live in is

a bewildering complexity

of action and reaction.

A delicate balance of nature.

We dare not alter without

first understanding.

Now in considering the environment

and mankind's relation

to it here today.

Let me conclude with an expression,

familiar to all of you I think,

Quite plainly, indeed

"It isn't nice to

fool Mother Nature."

Thank you.

I know we're all grateful to

Doctor Spencer for his time

and for his insights today.

While we're waiting for the buses,

I'd urge you all to take a few minutes

and look around the museum.

Thank you.

Well, they all seem to

be paying attention,

with the exception

of a few I noticed.

You know something?

Your lectures get better

every year Lewis.

Nonsense, you just

didn't listen to them

when I had you in class, that's all.

No, that's not true.

Well, thanks again for letting

me bring the kids here.

It's the only time I get

to see you anymore.

- I know.

- How's Nina?

Well, I don't see her too much

except to talk about

lawyers and child support.

Sorry about that.

I was hoping you two would get

things worked out together.

Yeah, me too.

- See you.

- Thanks a lot.

Bus is leaving.

You better get moving Trudy.

I'll be right with you.

So, where's Liz today?

She was going to cut school

while her parents were gone.

Got to make him forget he's a teacher

by reminding him that he's a man.

Then something they call animal

magnetism is supposed to take over.

Mind if I sit here?

No, not at all Trudy.

You and Trudy doing anything tonight?

I don't know, she's been

acting really weird lately.

Chicks can be weird.

Yeah, I now but she's

up to something.

I just haven't figured

out what it is yet.

Okay, Charlie, we can go.

I thought that that was a

fascinating lecture Mr. Harris.

Well, I'm glad you liked it Trudy.

Especially what he said about

how civilized man has lost touch

with his basic animal self.

I mean, don't you sometimes feel

that there's an animal inside you

just waiting for a chance to escape?

Well, I suppose we all

feel like that sometimes.



I want a department truck and two

crews down here this afternoon.

What are you going to do?

You're in violation of at least

six health department codes.

I'm going to half to

condemn all of this corn.

Come on. It'll be shipped out

of here in a couple of days.

It's a health hazard.

It's infested with rodents.

It's all going to have to

be destroyed immediately.

- All that stuff too?

- All of it.

This corn's going to Africa.

It will help a lot of hungry people.

Are you kidding? This is animal feed.

You can't feed this to human beings.

It's full of steroids.

- There are no steroids in this grain.

- There are steroids in the grain.

It's not going to be

shipped anywhere.

We'll see what my lawyers

have to say about that.

You may get all the

lawyers that you like.

This grain is a threat

to public health.

There isn't a court in the

country that'll back you.

Look, Miss Leonard,

I've got a lot of money

tied up in this inventory.

I could make it worth your while,

if you give us a break.

There will be a department

truck here this afternoon.

Well, guess we'll get down.

Would you mind turning

down the stereo?

We can hear it all

over the neighborhood.

No problem.

Thank you.

Hey, when did Liz say her

parents were going to be back?

I think she said in about a week.

That's good.

The neighbors will be

cooled off by then.

Hey, are you off in the ozone again?

You're not still hung up on

that Mr. Harris are you?

I'm not "hung up."

I just sometimes wonder whether

if I'm missing out on something

by being with Matt.

I mean, he can be so boring.

Mr. Harris is really exciting.


You have your own car,

you're a cheerleader.

What else do you want?

But he's so sophisticated.

He's been to Europe.

He's even been married.

He really understands women.

- Listen to this.

- What are you doing?

Calling his answering machine.

Hello, I'm Paul Harris

and I'm sorry I missed your call.

Is that a voice to die for or what?

At the tone,

please leave your message

and I'll get back to you

as quickly as possible.

Thank you.


Does Matt know about this?

No way.

He's old enough to be your father!

Oh, he is not.

Besides, I bet it would be

great with an older man.

I bet it will never happen.

How much? A month's allowance?

You're on.

Where are you going?

I've got to feed the baby.

Hi sweetie.

Guys, could you turn it down please.

Yeah, I'll get right on it Liz.


Yum yum.

One more.

There we go.

Let's see if Caroline can

eat by herself, okay?

While big sister makes

sure her friends

don't completely destroy
