A Bug's Life - 1 Flik Machine Seed to Tree

Full quotes and pictures FLIK: I'm lost! Where's the line? It just went away. What do I do? What do I do? Help! We'll be stuck here forever! MR. SOIL: Do not panic. Do not panic! We are trained professionals. Now, stay calm. We are going around the leaf. FLICK: Around the leaf? I don't think we can do that. Oh, nonsense. This is nothing compared to the twig of '93. That's it. That's it. Good! You're doing great! DR. SOIL: There you go. There you go! Watch my eyes. Don't look away. And here's the line again. FLIK: Thank you. Thank you, Mr Soil. MR. SOIL: Good job, everybody! DR. FLORA: Oh, my. There's quite a gap, Mr Soil. Shouldn't we tell the queen? MR. SOIL: I don't think we need to involve the queen in this. She's got enough on her plate already, training her daughter. DR. FLORA: Oh, yes. Princess Atta, the poor dear. PRINCESS ATTA: Oh, wind's died down. They'll be here soon. THE QUEEN: Just be confident, dear. You'll be fine. PRINCESS ATTA: There's a gap. There's a gap in the line. What are we gonna do? THORNY: It's okay, Your Highness. Gaps happen. We just lost a few inches, that's all. PRINCESS ATTA: Oh. Right. THORNY: Your Highness, I can't count when you hover like that. PRINCESS ATTA: Oh, of course. I'm sorry. Go ahead. THE QUEEN: Guys, go shade someone else for a while. Okay, Atta. Now what do we do? PRINCESS ATTA: Don't tell me. I know it. I know it. What is it? THE QUEEN: We relax.

PRINCESS ATTA: Right. THE QUEEN: Oh, it'll be fine. It's the same, year after year. They come, they eat, they leave. That's our lot in life. It's not a lot, but it's our life. Isn't that right, Aphie? Oh, you're such a cute little aphid. LITTLE ANT: Ditch Dot! PRINCESS DOT: Yeah, yeah! Hey, come back here! THE QUEEN: Dot! PRINCESS DOT: Yes, Mother. THE QUEEN: What did I tell you about trying to fly? PRINCESS DOT: Not until my wings grow in. THE QUEEN: Right. PRINCESS ATTA: Dot, you're a young queen ant, and your wings are too little to be. PRINCESS DOT: I was talking to Mother. You're not the queen yet, Atta. THE QUEEN: Now, Dot, be nice to your sister. PRINCESS DOT: It's not my fault she's so stressed out. PRINCESS ATTA: I know, I know. I'm always acting like the sky is falling. THORNY: Look out! Atta! Princess Atta! Princess Atta! Princess Atta! Oh! Hey! Stop that! What do you think you're doing? You could have killed somebody over here. FLIK: I'm sorry! I'm sorry! ANT: Oh, it's Flik. FLIK: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm so sorry! Please forgive me. I'm sorry! Princess Atta! PRINCESS ATTA: Flik, what are you doing? FLIK: Oh! Oh, this! This is my new idea for harvesting grain. No more picking individual kernels. You can just cut down the entire stalk! PRINCESS ATTA: Flik, we don't have time for this. FLIK: Exactly! We never have time to collect food for ourselves. Because we spend all summer harvesting for the offering. But my invention will speed up production. PRINCESS ATTA: Oh, another invention? FLIK: Yeah, and I've got something for you too. PRINCESS ATTA: Flik! FLIK: Since you're gonna be queen, you could use this to oversee production. Dr Flora, if I may. THRONY: This is all very nice, but. DR. FLORA: What? FLIK: Just an ordinary blade of grass and a bead of dew, right? PRINCESS ATTA: Flik, please. FLIK: Wrong! It is, in fact, a telescope. PRINCESS ATTA: It's very clever, Flik, but. FLIK: Hello, Princess! My, aren't you looking lovely this morning! Not, of course, that you would need a telescope to see that. THRONY: All right, listen! The princess doesn't have time for this! You wanna help us fill this thing? Then get rid of that machine get back in line and pick grain like everybody else! CORNELIUS: Like everybody else! PRINCESS ATTA: Please, Flik. Just go. FLIK: I'm sorry, I was really just trying to help. CORNELIUS: Harvester. Why, we harvested the same way ever since I was a pupa. Where were we? THORNY: The food pile, Your Highness. PRINCESS ATTA: Oh, yes, yes. PRINCESS DOT: Hey, Flik! Flik! Wait up! FLIK: Oh. Hello, Princess. PRINCESS DOT: You can call me Dot. Here, you forgot this. FLIK: Thanks. You can keep it. I can make another one. PRINCESS DOT: I like your inventions. FLIK: Really? Well, you're the first. I'm beginning to think nothing I do works. PRINCESS DOT: This works. FLIK: Great. One success. I'm never gonna make a difference. PRINCESS DOT: Me, neither. I'm a royal ant, and I can't even fly yet. I'm too little. FLIK: Oh, being little's not such a bad thing. PRINCESS DOT: Yes, it is. FLIK: No, it's not. PRINCESS DOT: Is too! FLIK: Is not. PRINCESS DOT: Is too. FLIK: Is not. PRINCESS DOT: Is too. FLIK: Is not. Is not. Is not. PRINCESS DOT: Oh! Is too. Is too. Is too. FLIK: A seed. I need a seed. Ahh. Ohh! Ah, here, here. Pretend pretend that that's a seed. PRINCESS DOT: It's a rock. FLIK: Oh, I know it's a rock. I know. But let's just pretend for a minute that it's a seed, all right? We'll just use our imaginations. Now. Now, do you see our tree? Everything that made that giant tree is already contained inside this tiny little seed. All it needs is some time, a little bit of sunshine and rain, and voilą! PRINCESS DOT: This rock will be a tree? FLIK: Seed to tree. You've gotta work with me, all right? Okay. You might not feel like you can do much now but that's just because, well, you're not a tree yet. You just have to give yourself some time. You're still a seed. PRINCESS DOT: But it's a rock. FLIK: I know it's a rock! Don't ya think I know a rock when I see a rock? I've spent a lot of time around rocks! PRINCESS DOT: You're weird, but I like you. ANTS: They're here. They're here! PRINCESS DOT: Mom! Where are you? ANTS: They're coming! Run! THE QUEEN: Dot! Dot! PRINCESS DOT: Mom! PRINCESS ATTA: Single file! PRINCESS DOT: Mom! THE QUEEN: Thank heavens! Food to the offering stone. Okay, everyone, single file. Food to the offering stone and into the anthill. Now let's go! Go, go, go, go! Come on. PRINCESS ATTA: Keep movin', keep movin'! Good. Okay. That's everyone. FLIK: Hey! Hey, wait for me! Get the food to the offering stone, then into the anthill. No! No, no, no, no, no! Oh, oh! Oh, no. Princess Atta! Princess Atta! Princess Atta! PRINCESS ATTA: They come, they eat, they leave. They come, they eat, they leave. FLIK: Excuse me, pardon me. Pardon me, excuse me. Coming through. Excuse me. Excuse me. Sorry, sorry. Coming through. Princess Atta, there's something I need to tell you. PRINCESS ATTA: Not now, Flik. FLIK: But, Your Highness, it's about the offering! HOOPER Hey, what's goin' on? Yeah, where's the food? PRINCESS ATTA: What did you do? FLIK: It was an accident? HOPPER: Boo! Where's the food? Huh? FLIK: Hopper. HOPPER: So, where is it? Where's my food?
