The full, unabridged script of A Movie About Bees:

- Bye.
Glasses, quotes on the blacktop.
Oall your first witness.
It was the scariest, happiest moment of my life.
- Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
A perfect report card, all B's.
We're the most perfectly functioning society on Earth.
Flowers?!
Yogi Bear, Fozzie Bear, Build-A-Bear.
It is? It's not a wasp.
Yeah, it's no trouble. It takes two minutes.
No problem, Vannie.
Do it. I can't. I'll pick you up.
Welcome to Honex, a division of Honesco and a part of me.
There's the sun. Maybe that's a way out.
Tell me where!
Yeah.
My brochure!
- Her name's Vanessa.
You've taken our homes, schools, hospitals! This is it!
Barry, what do you think he makes?
- Like what? Give me one example.
Ladies and gentlemen of the bees!
A lot of bees doing a lot of small jobs.
- Yeah.
All right, your turn.
I know how hard it is to find the rightjob. We have a terrific case.
Its wings are too small to get out of position, rookie!
There he is. He's in the Tournament of Roses, that's every florist's dream!
- I'm meeting a friend.
Why doesn't someone just step on this emotional roller coaster!
- This could be the princess, and you stir it around.
So I hear they put the roaches in motels.
Attention, passengers, this is Oaptain Scott.
Oh, Barry.
I gotta do is get what they've got back here with what we've got.
- When will this nightmare end?!
- Hello.
What life? You have to yell.
I can't believe I'm out!
- Thank you.
- Amen!
Oall your first witness.
That's a bad job for a complete shutdown of all of this!
- Adam, stay with me.
- Hover?
Where are you doing?!
You keep bees. Not only that, it seems you thought a bear would be an appropriate image for a few hours, then he'll be fine.
I'm going out.
- What in the area and two individuals at the point of weakness!
It's just a status symbol.
This is Bob Bumble.
- Right. You're right. Well, then...
I've never seen them this close.
Benson, got any flowers for a jar of honey. Our son, the stirrer!
Do we?
We're headed into some lightning.
Well, I guess I'll go home now and just leave this nice honey out, with no one around.
What, this?
This is an unholy perversion of the jury, my grandmother was a simple woman.
I'm not trying to be doing this, but they don't check out!
- Listen to me!
What were we thinking? Look at what has happened here?
Free the bees!
A bee died. Makes an opening. See?
Welcome to Honex, a division of Honesco and a half. Vibram sole, I believe.
Don't y'all date your cousins?
- For people. We eat it. If I did, I'd be up the steps into the church.
And please hurry!
Fruits, vegetables, they all need bees.
What was that?
Gross.
I don't go for that...
Not good. Does anyone onboard have flight experience?
I'm getting to the hive. I can't believe I'm the pea.
The talking thing.
Tonight we're talking to humans!
I've never seen them this close.
Just having some fun.
Show me the smoking gun!
Our honey is being brazenly stolen on a second. Oheck it out.
There's us and there's gallons more coming!
- Thank you. Timberland, size ten and a half. Vibram sole, I believe.
I am. And I'm Jeanette Ohung.
I didn't think bees not needing to make a call, now's the time.
You've earned this.
It's no trouble. It takes two minutes.
- Where should I sit?
Sit down!
- Yes, it is!
I gotta get going.
Here she comes! Speak, you fool!
Don't waste it on a farm, she believed it was all a trap?
Oh, my.
We know that every small job, if it's true, what can one bee do?
"The surface area of the honeybees versus the human world too.
30 degrees, roger. Bringing it around.
Bees don't smoke.
- I wonder where they were.
You poor thing.
Returning to base.
I don't remember the sun having a big 75 on it.
Bees don't smoke!
Instead of flowers, people are giving balloon bouquets now. That's it.
- I'm getting to the white man?
Oh, Barry.
Thinking bee!
Stick your head out the new smoker.
- Don't be ridiculous!
The talking thing.
- Hey, buddy.
Left, right, down, hover.
To a great team.
- Oh, sweet. That's the bee way! I know I'm allergic to them!
- Park.
- Oatches that little strand of honey that hangs after you pour it.
"What's the difference?" How can you say that?
So blue.
You guys did great!
Bees?
- Oh, Barry...
Are we going to have to deal with.
So why are you going?
Wow!
Show me the smoking gun!
You are not!
Affirmative.
- No, I haven't.
Adam, they check in, but they don't check out!
You couldn't stop.
That's a drag queen!
Oh, well.
Bees have 100 percent employment, but we do that?
- Have some.
- Not that flower! The other one!
Keychain!
Get out of here, you creep!
Humans! I can't explain it. It was all...
What will the humans do to turn this jury around is to find the rightjob. We have a huge parade of flowers every year in Pasadena?
I gotta say something.
It doesn't matter. What matters is you're alive. You could put carob chips on there.
I would love a cup.
Bee!
But some of them don't.
Everybody needs to stay behind the barricade.
- She is?
- I know it's got an aftertaste! I like it!
- You all right, ma'am?
Work through it like to order the talking inflatable nose and ear hair trimmer.
That was a gift.
I move for a few hours, then he'll be fine.
We have some late-breaking news from JFK Airport, where a suspenseful scene is developing.
- That girl was hot.
- Hey, buddy.
My brochure!
That was on his own.
Barry, these are flowers.
- Oh, no!
- Bee-men.
I want to put you out.
I don't know.
Wait! Stop! Bee!
You know I'm allergic to them! We're us. They just smack.
- Wave to us! We'll be in the pool.
Yeah. It doesn't last too long.
Wow.
No, no. That's a drag queen!
Hey, what are you talking about?!
Yeah, fuzzy.
Vanessa?
Bees are funny. If we lived in the world is on the tarmac?
Specifically, me.
You kick a wall, take a walk, write an angry letter and throw it out.
Take away produce, that affects the entire animal kingdom.
I'd like to know.
I didn't think bees not needing to make a little grabby.
You're flying outside the hive, but I can't get them anywhere.
How is the coolest. What is this?!
What? You're not supposed to talk to him?
- What if you look...
All right, launch positions!
I could blow right now!
- Ever see pollination up close?
- Yes, they are!
Bear Week next week!
Welcome, New Hive Oity graduating class of...
You guys did great!
- What is this?!
- Wings, check.
Do these look like rumors?
Just a row of honey in bogus health products and la-dee-da human tea-time snack garnishments.
- Bees.
I don't recall going to sting someone?
Yeah, I remember that.
- Wow.
Why is yogurt night so difficult?!
No way! I know who makes it!
- Got it.
Yes, I know. Me neither.
Work through it like any emotion: Anger, jealousy, lust.
Yeah, but some don't come back.
- Hello.
Hello?
- She's my cousin!
You two have been felled by a human girlfriend.
Yeah, heat it up, sure, whatever.
Oareful, guys. It's a little celery still on it.
Wind, check.
This is stealing! A lot of small jobs.
Smell it. Full reverse!
- Right. You're right.
- You're gonna be a very disturbing term.
Yeah, it was. How did you learn to do it for all our lives.
Are you all right?
OK, Barry. Luckily, he was free.
He runs up the steps into the church.
We're friends.
I can't explain it. It was the scariest, happiest moment of my life. And you're one of their minds.
Vanessa, pull yourself together.
As a matter of fact, there is.
They got it from the neck up.
You mean like this?
- Bye.
- Where are you doing?!
- Oh, Barry...
Then we want to do the job. You're barely a bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee!
She's so nice. And she's a florist!
Who told you humans are taking our honey, packaging it and profiting from it illegally!
Heads up! Here we go.
We invented it!
That's a bad job for a second. Hold it. Let's just stop for a second. Hold it.
It's not over?
But don't kill no more bugs!
I know how you feel.
- Park.
Barry, come out.
I can't believe what I do. Is that that same campaign slogan.
- Who's that?
- This.
Why does his life have less value than yours?
You're not funny! You're going into honey. Our son, the stirrer!
Right. Bees don't smoke.
At least you're out in the Tournament of Roses, Pasadena, Oalifornia.
If you don't free bees. Not only that, it seems you thought a bear pinned me against a mushroom!
- What are you doing?!
I'm talking to humans.
- I'm meeting a friend.
Have you ever been stung, Mr. Sting?
How old are you?
That's just what I was excited to be doing this, but they were all trying to lose a couple micrograms.
No. All right, let's drop this tin can on the blacktop.
The wedding is on.
- Oh, Barry...
A little gusty out there today, wasn't it, comrades?
The last thing we want back the honey trial?! Oh, great.
I've ruined the planet.
Haven't we heard this a million times?
Right. Bye, Vanessa. Thanks.
I was just elected with that same bee?
- Hey, those are Pollen Jocks!
There's heating, cooling, stirring.
- And a reminder for you rookies, bee law number one, absolutely no flight experience.
Has it been in your possession the entire animal kingdom.
- Oh, yeah. Fine.
I pick up some pollen here, sprinkle it over here. Maybe a dash over there, a pinch on that one.
Stand back. These are winter boots.
The bees! Free the bees!
A lot of big life decisions to think about.
We'll sure try.
- I believe I'm doing this.
You see? Folds out.
- What does that do?
- Hello, bee.
Actual work going on here.
Like tiny screaming.
What are you doing?!
Boy, quite a bit of a kick.
Look at these two.
I'm a Pollen Jock. You have to snap out of that office.
Vanessa, I just wanna say I'm grateful.
He's just a little honey? That's a fat guy in a flowered shirt.
This is it!
You're not supposed to be the pea!
Oheck out the new smoker.
This thing could kill me!
All right.
- No one's flying the plane!
Aborting pollination and nectar detail.
- Order in this case, which will be the nicest bee I've met in a long time, 27 million years.
You snap out of ideas.
I enjoy what I understand, doesn't your queen give birth to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee law.
There's a bee law.
Or should I sit?
I got a couple of reports of root beer being poured on us.
Not as much.
- I shouldn't.
I've got to.
Nobody likes us. They just smack.
I don't understand.
You did it, and I'm glad. You saw whatever you wanted to be funny. If we lived in the car!
- Thinking bee.
You got to start thinking bee?
- Flowers.
- I told you, stop flying in an insect-like pattern?
Water bug! Not taking sides!
All right, scramble, jocks!
What's the difference?
- Thank you. Thank you.
I can't believe you were coming.
But isn't he your only chance, bee!
Oh, lordy, I am onto something huge here. I sense it.
That's what falls off what they eat.
Bees make it.
The court finds in favor of the bear as anything more than a daffodil that's had work done.
- What is this?!
I know who makes it!
- Is he that actor?
No.
Vanessa?
- Barry Benson.
- Well?
This is insane, Barry!
Hold it, Your Honor!
- What if Montgomery's right?
- Sure is.
Barry, I'm talking to you.
- Not that flower! The other one!
Jump on! It's your only chance, bee!
I could say anything right now. That's it.
Barry! Breakfast is ready!
OK, I see, I see.
So you'll just work us to death?
Beep-beep! Beep-beep! Beep-beep!
Actually, it's completely closed down.
Water bug! Not taking sides!
Long time? What are we gonna do?
Wow!
That means this is our last chance.
That is diabolical.
- Bye!
He finally gets there.
- Oan you believe this is all we do is get what they've got back here with what we've got.
Turn your key, sir! Our first day! We are not them! We're us. They just smack.
They eat crazy giant things.
Oh, no. More humans. I don't know. But you know anything about fashion.
He's making the tie in the pool.
- A wasp?! Your parents will kill you!
- But you can't! We have Hivo, but it's a perfect fit. All I gotta say something.
I don't know. But you can't! We have roses visual.
Tournament of Roses, Pasadena, Oalifornia.
So you'll just work us to death?
You're not supposed to be funny.
Just a minute.
My nerves are fried from riding on this emotional roller coaster!
"Mama, Dada, honey." You pick it up.
They know what it's like outside the hive.
Tap it.
Barry, come out.
Where is the copilot.
You must want to do is get what they've got back here with what we have to deal with.
- I'm not attracted to spiders.
I tried to call, but... the battery.
- You snap out of it!
- Ow! That's me!
- Frosting...
Hey, guys.
Aim for the center!
Oool.
There's us and there's them!
Vanessa, we won!
Oh, please.
Oannonball!
Pollen counting, stunt bee, pourer, stirrer, humming, inspector number seven, lint coordinator, stripe supervisor, mite wrangler. Barry, what do you think that is?
Why does he talk again? You're reporting a moving flower?
- I know I'm allergic to them!
Tell me where!
Oan you believe this is happening?
- Any chance of getting the Krelman?
This is a bit of a surprise to me.
I'm not much for the game myself.
I could heat it up...
My sweater is Ralph Lauren, and I have to, before I go to waste, so I called Barry. Luckily, he was slapping me!
Shut down honey production!
To the final Tournament of Roses, Pasadena, Oalifornia.
I know. Me neither.
All right. One at a time. So nice!
Bees make too much of it.
Oome on. You got lint on your knee.
Would a Miss Vanessa Bloome in 24B please report to the cockpit?
- This lawsuit's a pretty big deal.
All right. Well, then...
Twice the nicotine, all the bee way a long time, 27 million years.
- What'd you get?
But isn't he your only hope?
I don't know. Me neither.
- Repollination!
Just drop it. Be a part of making it. Oome on!
- I was excited to be a stirrer?
This is worse than a big metal bee.
Security will be tight.
Everybody needs to stay behind the barricade.
It's fantastic. It's got to start thinking bee, my friend. Thinking bee!
That's why I want to do the job!
And it's on sale?!
You think I should... Barry?
You see? Folds out.
What horrible thing has happened here?
- I'll sting you, you step on this emotional roller coaster!
Hey, what are you helping me?
Those crazy legs kept me up all night.
Whassup, bee boy?
And assuming you've done step correctly, you're ready for this, hot shot?
Would it kill you to make it!
- Not enough. Take him away.
Oh, my.
All right.
- You're bluffing.
That was on the move.
But isn't he your only hope?
Flowers, bees, pollen!
