2023.05.28 08:27 Beautiful_Let9784 Since last update multiple changes have been made
Feel free to add anything (I'm sure I will miss much) that I do indeed fail to mention.
- Weapons across the board have been nerfed. All of my weapons of choice (plasma, fire or frag, gauss, BFG) are definitely nerfed to frustrating levels.
- The time for the ultimate weapon to charge has been pushed back, for me, by 2 rooms. So, if you are usually seeing your ultimate charge at room 10, it is now room 12 or 13. For me at least. Every time.
- Upgrades during run has targeted primary weapon to not be fully maxed more often. I have yet to have my primary fully maxed during a run since last update. Ive played over 30 times.
- Weapon drops during runs has bottomed (hard to believe that was even possibly, but here we are). I usually would get a weapon drop 2 out of 10-15 tries and sometimes even better with the casual armor drops as well. Since last update both are as scarce as water in the Sahara.
That's what I've seen since update. If this level of change continues I cant see this game being successful past the flash in the pan/wham bam thank you mam like other failed to adapt mobile games before it.
EDIT--seems they must have heard us as the drop rate on weapons has increased remarkably since people have been complaining on Google reviews and here on reddit. Why we must speak out when we see or experience differences in gameplay.
I have had multiple runs with weapon or armor pieces in last 10 runs. We shall see If it tracks back to norm.

2023.05.18 04:10 Surviving_Fallout Awesome Mixes In-Universe versus Real Life
We've all come to love the music that James Gunn and co. brought with the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy, but one thing that I found interesting is the discrepancy between the mixes, especially between Volumes 1 and 2. The soundtrack of all the songs that played in each movie correspond to their movie volume in real life (what you see on music streaming and physical copies), but not necessarily when they're played throughout the movies, taking into account the journeys of the cassettes. As we know, Vol. 1 is:
- Hooked On a Feeling - Blue Swede
- Go All the Way - Raspberries
- Spirit in the Sky - Norman Greenbaum
- Moonage Daydream - David Bowie
- Fooled Around and Fell in Love - Elvin Bishop
- I'm Not in Love - 10cc
- I Want You Back - The Jackson 5
- Come and Get Your Love - Redbone
- Cherry Bomb - The Runaways
- Escape (The Pina Colada Song) - Rupert Holmes
- O-o-h Child - The Five Stairsteps
- Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell
- Electric Light Orchestra– Mr. Blue Sky
- Sweet – Fox On The Run
- Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah– Lake Shore Drive
- Fleetwood Mac– The Chain
- Sam Cooke– Bring It On Home To Me
- Glen Campbell– Southern Nights
- George Harrison– My Sweet Lord
- Looking Glass– Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)
- Jay & The Americans– Come A Little Bit Closer
- Silver – Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang
- Cheap Trick– Surrender
- Cat Stevens– Father And Son
- Parliament– Flash Light
If we follow the events of the first two movies, Awesome Mix Vol 1 is destroyed before we hear Ain't No Mountain... and I Want you Back. We hear these two songs after Quill opens his mom's gift to reveal Vol 2, so in-universe these two songs are on the Vol 2 cassette. In GotG 2, Rocket asks Kraglin if he has any of Quill's old music. Since it's likely that Quill didn't share Awesome Mix Vol 2 with the Ravagers after the events of the first movie, it's safe to say that Come a Little Bit Closer and Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang (which is also played on the ship) are also on Awesome Mix Vol 1.
Ego destroys the Vol 2 cassette before we hear Father and Son, Flash Light, and Surrender; however, we know Quill receives the Zune and the movie shows him playing Father And Son on said device.
With all of this being said, every song – from Father And Son, to Rubberband Man by The Spinners in Infinity War, onto the songs from GotG 3 – most likely isn't on any Awesome Mix Vol 3 album/cassette, unless Quill created a playlist and named it that on the Zune. There's also no guarantee we even heard every in-universe song that was on the first two Volume cassettes, just what the Guardians were playing at that moment in time. We definitely
didn't hear every song on the Zune!
Let me know what you all think and let me know if I missed something!
TLDR; The songs from the in-universe Awesome Mixes don't necessarily correspond to/ match the albums they're on for us in the real world.

2023.05.16 00:29 AGoodenough Longtime customers dealing with constant T4 timeouts, I presume due to a faulty tap or splitter.
We've been longtime customers with Charter Spectrum ever since their merger with our existing ISP at that time, Time Warner Cable, and things have been pretty solid until a few months ago. Our Internet connection constantly goes out on us because of T4 timeouts, which is short for Received Response to Broadcast Maintenance Request, But no Unicast Maintenance opportunities received.
This is an extremely common issue consumers face, often resulting from poor cables, taps or splitters. Yet the wires inside our house, as well as our recently-replaced outdoor wire work perfectly fine and give us more download speeds than we expected after replacing our old equipment with a Technicolor ET2251 modem and Spectrum Advanced WiFi router.
Our equipment will usually timeout on us between the late morning and early evening hours, resulting in our router emitting a slow-flashing red light while the Power and Internet lights on our modem remain a steady blue. Even after having our modem replaced, I still experience this same issue and have to constantly power-cycle our equipment practically every 10-30 minutes.
I've already confirmed that the modem isn't to blame for our issues, nor the lines inside our house after a technician inspected them just fine. I presume the issue may be due to a faulty tap or splitter, as our cable boxes have difficulties picking up our local ABC and CW affiliate 13-WHAM, but I am reluctant to get another technician to replace them as my mother hates when Spectrum labels our lines as "Radioshack lines."
Should I call for another technician to inspect our tap or splitters to see if they're the reason for our T4 timeouts?

2023.05.12 15:53 Bulky-Cardiologist84 if 90 doesn't work can I up to 120
Hey guys the other day I took 60mg codeine and it didn't do anything (wasn't expecting it to) now i wanna try to feel a codeine high the issue is I've only got 13 tablets left and I can't get more and I tend to keep them for pain emergencies (or if anyone in the family gets hurt) so don't want to deplet the box too much.
I was going to try 90 and see what happens but if nothing happens can I take another one? Making the dose 120. I know you can't redose but would this be different?
How long should I wait after taking the 90 to take the 30 to make it 120?
I don't know if I should just wham 120 to begin with as it's my first time trying.

2023.04.19 18:58 anotherlurkercount Son of Stingers XVII
"For you, Benjamin Bee, to you from me." Jaquelyn Wattner (whom was actually born Jolene Garbner) called and began laughing softly strolling back into Dr. Tom's office. The boy would probably end up underground at a research black site inside a week but she had done what she could for him, against all reason. "Foolish naive boy" she said shaking her head as she opened the door. "Asthmatic, bespectacled, and a bit effeminate with a hand eye coordination that gives all the other 4 eyed boys with allergies a bad name."
As she entered the clinic talking to herself she could see the initial shock had worn off at-least one of the receptionists there, an older woman with a kind of no nonsense expression permanently lined in her face, was on the phone. Likely speaking to the police but she held the phone down to her shoulder and said "Sir if you please, we have a situation here and I will be with you when I can, now sit down please." She said her voice starting a little breathless but gaining strength towards the end.
The clinic was small indeed, there were only a few chairs in the waiting area and one door leading to the rest of the building with a large opening beside it for the registration and reception. Walking straight towards the door way, which was still open as she had left it walking out, she could see that poor spanish women wide-eyed and a bit shaky.
"Excuse me, who are you, what is your name?" Prune face demanded leaving the officer on the phone waiting again, maybe he would take the opportunity to just hang up on the old bird.
Reaching back into her early days at the academy she adopted a pained expression and spoke quietly in reply " I-I have to go check on my husband, I think he is dead but I want to double check, I could be wrong. I could be" the last words coming out in a whisper.
Sure enough, she still had something of that skillset left. Sour puss's agitated expression slowly faded into real sympathy and at first seemed to not know what to say. She gave her self a visible shake and then asked "Dead?" Turning her head to Mrs Hernandez and calling her name which at first yielded no response she raised her voice a bit and said "Maria!"
"Yes?" Mrs Hernandez finally responded after a little shudder.
"I thought you two said the man was merely unconscious? Where is Dr Tomoloski, smoking a damned cigarette out back no doubt. Yes, i'm still here hold on a moment please." That last spoken to the officer on the phone.
"Mrs Hernandez if you think you can manage, would you escort Mrs..." She trailed off as she turned back towards Jolene with an expectant look.
"Mrs Wattner....or just Ms Wattner now I suppose" Jolene said letting her face crumple and her gaze drift back to the floor.
"Ah, well um, please take this woman back to her husband. And tell that doctor, investing that title with a hefty amount of scorn, to stop smoking and start settling his patients down."
Mrs Hernandez still a bit wide eyed "Eileen she is-"
"Don't you Eileen me right now Mrs Hernandez, no! Not another word on it. Honestly, you are a grown woman and a nurse get ahold of yourself and act like it. I have the police and these patients to deal with and I don't need you going to pieces like a girl still in college." Her voice had gained strength the longer she'd went on and clearly there was some pre-existing animosity between them. Jolene could use that.
To her credit, the little woman lost the deer in headlights expression to narrow her eyes and draw down her brows at Eileen a moment before rising and saying " Of course Mrs Tomoloski" she said bitterly. Walking up to Jolene she didn't get too close and regarded her warily, nodding her head down the hall.
Still in a phony distraught posture she turned down the hall and waited until she was sure prune face wasn't still watching them before standing straight. "She's probably already directing orders to the cop on the call, poor man. So she's this doc's mother eh?
Mrs Hernandez was walking a couple steps behind, and at first didn't say anything. Merely walked along studying this woman who had taken the children out and then let them go. As they arrived at the exam room the lout was in she finally spoke. "So is he really your husband? I know the boy is yours, a mother's eyes change when they fall on her son, even that one's" She said nodding her had back up the hall.
"He was Maria, was. Trust me when I tell you that this is definitely one circumstance where the less you know the better off you will be. Believe that." Placing her hand on the door she gave the little woman a viperish look that spoke volumes on it's own, especially after the two very different versions she had witnessed this afternoon. "Run along and find the good doctor, I suggest you smoke one too before returning. Go."
The blood drained from her face and she stood still for a moment. Very still. Like a rabbit too afraid to move with a hawk circling overhead. Then wide eyed expression returning she stammered "W-well I uh..."
Jolene half turned from the door and loomed over top of the woman and began to lean in but was relieved to hear a breathless "Yes" that sounded more like "Jess". Mrs Hernandez gave her wide berth as she moved on down the hallway towards the back door talking herserlf. She caught "oh dios mio todos estos americanos estan locos" before her voice cut off as she hustled outside.
Jolene opened the door and took a step in having only a moment before noticing Ted wasn't laying in the corner. WHAM! The door slammed into her and a firm hand gripped her head wrenching her ponytail and pulling her into the room and onto the floor. Instinctively she kicked backwards at his right leg as she hit the ground, sending him toppling on top of her and she lost all of her breath as the air was knocked out of her lungs with the elbow he had landed on her back.
She tried to turn, and couldn't. She wasn't a stranger to martial combat, the training she had received in the military was drilled in so hard, it never left you. She went to spin her legs out and twist herself around to face him but her breathless body couldn't muster the strength. Instead what she accomplished probably looked like a fish trying to swim on land. Feeling him lean back his weight on her butt and legs she cried out in pain as her hair tried to pull the skin off her head.
Ted pulled back on her pony tail as hard as he could with his right hand, the act lifted her head and shoulders off the floor as he sat/knelt on her ass and legs. Her hands reached back and vainly tried to claw his hand free, lifting herself closer backwards to get a grip he grinned as she scrapped. Savoring it only a moment he reached his other hand forward and snapped all of his strength into pushing down forward instead of pulling. Her head smashed into the solid linoleum with a sickening sound. Again he slammed it down and by the third strike he could see the blood splatter beneath, could feel her body go limp under him. Still he brutalized the woman he had lived with for over a decade, the woman he hated more than he had ever hated anyone. And Ted was no stranger to anger.
"Wooo!" he let out excitedly whilst staggering to his feet."Fucking finally, you shut up. You dumb dyke bitch. Oh that was good, was it good for you baby ?" He spat out while actually spitting at her head. Adjusting his clothing straight he leaned out the doorway to see if anyone was coming and his smile returned at the empty hallway. Giving her ass a solid kick on the way, he moved to the window to see how it would come open. "God this fucking headache." Unsure if this was the result of that injection or if the little mexican't wench gave him something while he was out. It hardly should have effected him at all, being meant for that wimpy little boy experiment and not a grown operator like himself.
Reaching into his pocket he pulled out a knife and began slicing at the caulking that seemed to be the only thing holding the bottom window pane in place. It didn't take long, but the seconds stretched out as sweat began to bead on his forehead, the headache growing worse each time he swiveled his head to check the door. Finally it came free and he pushed the window all the way out and lifted himself up to go out it feet first. For one panicked moment he was hung at the waist, he was getting soft around the mid drift with such a prolonged lax assignment, but finally he scraped through and out. He hit the ground with a thud and let out a string of quiet curses as he felt the cold wet on his shoulder where he'd landed at the edge of a puddle.
Wasting no time recovering he got on his feet and began trotting across the vacant grassy lot that sat next to the clinic. Looping around to the parking lot he saw his truck, and with no police cars around it yet. He bolted across the parking lot and made it inside his truck, starting the engine and yanking down the gear into drive jumping over the curb and into the exit lane, giving the truck two great bounces before the tires squealed as he lit out onto the highway. Checking his mirrors he let out a breath. Home free and without having to try and remember the correct protocol to use with local law enforcement.
Reaching into the glove compartment he pulled out his burner flip phone and scrolled down to call the only number in it's contact list.
It rang only once. "Overwatch" the crisp androgynous voice stated.
" BB Watts Bravo, go secure?" he replied.
"Confirmed Bravo, secure."
"Alpha and Charlie are both down and the asset is in the wind. Get me a line to actual, now."
Silence answered him and he started to say something but held his tongue and waited. "Actual here, what the hell is going down there Ted, siterep?" the voice belonged to a man he knew well. Major Hawlton. A vietnam era marine turned spook, not something he had a ever heard of but he somehow didn't doubt it after just one meeting with the man. His voice was impatient and more than a little angry.
"I told you that bitch had gone soft for the kid sir. Looks like she took out Carl and tried to make it look like a bear attack to cover the act, but I caught up to her at their rendezvous. I took her down but the boy manged to escape. Happened at a clinic with several eyeballs there sir, no way to avoid it." He let out all in a rush before the man could voice complaint or question to interrupt.
"Son of a bitch..dammit Ted I can't believe you two let this shit happen. It's a woman and a kid for god sakes man." The major's voice spoke again but quieter as he spoke to someone else in the room. " Activate broken arrow protocol for beeboy and get me the liason on the line." The voice turned back up " I want you talking to that drunk they call sherriff before he does or says anything stupid, do you hear me Ted, you will unscrew this situation before it gets anyworse."
"Negative sir, i'm already on the trail. Give me a day and i'll drag this punk back in."
"Are you tired of living? Maybe we lost the whole team today after all." Hawlton spoke back in a dangerous voice.
"What's the priority here sir, containtment or the asset? I'm already following the route he took out of town and I know the boy and his girlfriend better than anyone else you could put to run the op right?." he rambled out raising the pitch of his voice and adding a bit of pleading into his tone at the end. Silence answered him.
He spoke over his shoulder again and barked "Get a damn team down there within the hour, chopper them in dressed as fed's. Alright Bravo, you want it? You got it. But I had better see some honey on my plate soon or you are going to be there instead, understand?"
"Roger that sir, I'm currently eastbound on state highway 13, they're heading into Indiana. I'll update you soon."

2023.04.14 13:10 House_of_Suns /r/QOTSA Official Band of the Week 15: SCREAMING TREES
You know how your mom never, ever, ever stops talking about how painful and difficult your birth was? How each time she talks about it, it gets longer and more painful and more detailed and more awful? And how that long and difficult experience makes you indebted to her forever? And how when she tells that tale at Thanksgiving every year with three-too-many Chardonnays
in her you feel the bile and anger rise?
What, just me? Goddammit, Freud
, you are ruining my sex life.
This week’s band went through a truly difficult and painful genesis. They strove for success and fought themselves all the way. The band peaked just as they were coming apart, and the breakup was ugly.
There were drugs (a lot more than six). Worse, there was heroin. And no, not the Wonder Woman
kind, that’s spelled differently. There was alcohol. There were binges and mistakes. There was a car crash. Then there was another one. There was a feud with Liam Gallagher. OK, that shit is totally understandable. Wanker.
There were brushes with greatness. Steve Fisk, Chris Cornell, and our ginger savior all played a part.
Birth is a difficult process. I should know, because I gave birth to a kidney stone
once, and I am never letting that fucker forget it.
Today we will take a dive into a painful experience for everyone involved, full of regret and mistakes. But that suffering produced some amazing music, was the bridge between Kyuss and QotSA, and introduced the world to the ashtray-eating, heroin-shooting gargoyle himself, Mark Lanegan.
That’s right: this week’s band is SCREAMING TREES
(Oh yeah, that’s a Facebook link alright.) About Them Screaming Trees
hail from the pacific northwest, that Mecca of Grunge. But what people tend to forget is that this band was old before Grunge was actually a thing. Their first four albums - over half their official discography - dropped between 1986 and 1989, and went largely unnoticed
outside of the local scene.
Sure, if you ask a hard core fan, they will tell you that you don’t know the band unless you have listened to their 1986 debut album Clairvoyance,
if only because Steve Fisk produced it. Even Kim Thayil of Soundgarden
loves the raw power of the album. Much like The Velvet Underground, early Screaming Trees music is more important because of how it influenced artists in the Seattle Scene, rather than the impact of the music itself.
The band - consisting of Lanegan
on vocals, Gary Lee Conner on Guitar, his brother Van Conner on Bass, and Mark Pickerel on drums - signed a record deal with SST (Solid State Tuners, yeah, I looked that one up for you) and quickly released Even If and Especially When
in 1987, Invisible Lantern
in 1988, and Buzz Factory
in 1989. All three albums underwhelmed and brought an end to their contract. The band did cut their teeth on the indie circuit. After a van wreck in Florida in 1989, the band almost collapsed. (Side note: who would have thought anything would be a complete wreck
Though the band had garnered something of a cult following by touring all across the US, the big break eluded them. We know that the Seattle scene was an intimate one, and everyone knew each other. Screaming Trees jumped from SST to legendary Seattle label Sub Pop
for one EP, Change Has Come.
Even though this was a modest success, the band made the decision to seek some formal management and ended up turning to Susan Silver, who managed Soundgarden and was then the wife of Chris Cornell.
Silver - and Cornell - turned out to be exactly what they needed. Things began to turn around when Silver convinced Epic Records to take a gamble on them. Epic was the Sony-owned label that had released Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
They had major acts in their stable, including Culture Club, Wham!, the Clash, Living Color, Ozzy Ozbourne, and of course Pearl Jam. Epic saw the growing music scene in Seattle and, tipped off by Silver, snapped up Screaming Trees.
This was the big time.
This was what they had been working for.
All they had to do was not screw it up.
If you want to dive into their discography, a great place to start is with their fifth album, and the first one on the Epic label, Uncle Anesthesia.
Screaming Trees knew that Epic was their big shot, and that they had to create something great. After dipping a toe in the water with Epic with the EP Something About Today,
they knew that they needed an amazing producer to sharpen them in the studio, just like Steve Fisk had done on their debut.
Cornell and Silver recommended Terry Date, who had produced Louder than Love.
Cornell also volunteered to help produce the album and do backing vocals. Incidentally, Date would go on to produce Soundgarden’s monster album Badmotorfinger
that same year. Uncle Anesthesia
(despite some truly disturbing
album art) went on to actually have a song - Bed of Roses
- chart on the radio. But it was not quite the hit album that anyone in the band had hoped for. Drummer Mark Pickerel called it quits and left the band and was replaced by Barrett Martin. After another van wreck (Seriously? WTF? Twice? Only one guy in the band is named Van) -- this time in Wyoming
-- the band had to cancel a bunch of shows. Lanegan had always been a drinker, but this second wreck pushed him deep into the bottle. Bassist Van Conner temporarily quit the band to tour with Dinosaur Jr.
It seemed like Screaming Trees had missed the free throw. They’d bobbled the ball. They had dropped the pass. They didn’t do the thing. They didn’t sport the sport.
But there was some light at the end of the tunnel. Or, rather, moving pictures. Or maybe both. See, it turns out that the band should really have been thinking of going to the movies instead.
Screaming Trees may not have had the Kool-Aid-Man
-Runs-Through-the-Wall breakout hit they wanted with Uncle Anesthesia.
But what they had after five full albums was credibility.
They were the band that other bands knew and respected. They had a very strong cult following. They had modest airplay and a great record deal.
And with the movie Singles,
their long, protracted and painful journey from scuffling bar band to genuine breakout artist finally occurred. The 1992 love letter from director Cameron Crowe to the Gen X Seattle Music Scene has all kinds of inside jokes in it. Pearl Jam Bassist Jeff Ament let actor Matt Dillon wear his clothes for the authenticity of his character. Chris Cornell wrote an early version of Spoonman
for the film as well as Birth Ritual
Pearl Jam wrote Breath
and State of Love and Trust.
The Smashing Pumpkins wrote Drown
. Alice in Chains and Soundgarden
both had live performances in the film. Crowe knew all about the music scene in Seattle and knew the credibility that Screaming Trees had with all the artists in the film.
And because the soundtrack came out on Epic Records, the label also had a vested interest in the success of their own Grunge artist. The Singles
soundtrack was released in June of 1992, three months before the movie came out. It built massive hype and went platinum. Epic, with Crowe’s blessing, made sure that Screaming Trees got a huge place of prominence in the movie soundtrack. Nearly Lost You,
the single from the forthcoming Screaming Trees album, got heavy radio rotation. Expectations soared.
This was a massive problem
for the band.
Screaming Trees had been all about the struggle. When they finally got national success they just did not know what to do with it. Having finally been born, they were in real danger of being abandoned, much like my aforementioned kidney stone.
It just kind of sits there now. Lazy bastard.
Lanegan’s drinking and the pressure for success made the creation of their sixth studio album, Sweet Oblivion
, a chaotic experience. He would disappear for days during the recording process, come back hung over and make up lyrics on the spot. Half-written songs without titles were workshopped and recorded rather than rehearsed and polished. But somehow the album got made. Sweet Oblivion
dropped in September of 1992 and the strength of the massively hyped Nearly Lost You
drove unprecedented sales. They weren’t playing clubs anymore; they were playing stadiums. But this tour pushed Lanegan out of the bottle and straight towards Heroin. And not ‘heroine’ like Black Widow,
I mean Black Tar heroin.
The punishing tour schedule and equally if not more punishing drug use took an incredible toll on the band. When it came time to try to follow up on Sweet Oblivion
, the mojo was gone. Screaming Trees had never had any problems creatively until this time. Gary Lee Conner called the time after the tour “...one of the darkest periods of my life.” If the pressure to create Sweet Oblivion
had been big, the pressure to follow it up was enormous. To the band, it was like trying to create the follow up to GTA V.
Or Half-Life 2.
We’re talking turn-coal-into-diamonds-in-your-ass
type of pressure. Gary Lee Conner and Mark Lanegan had always collaborated to make the band’s music, but Lanegan was the clear creative force. Conner could not do it on his own, and Lanegan was too busy dancing with his Feel-Good-Hits-Of-The-Summer, if you know what I mean.
It got so bad that Van Conner told Lanegan that he was kicked out of the band, and that they would be seeking a new singer and a new band name. Lanegan somehow convinced Conner to give him one more chance. Screaming Trees went back in to the studio and squeezed out one more album, Dust.
It is a solid recording with some good tracks but it came out in 1996, four years after their last release.
The band toured heavily in support Dust.
At one point in 1996, they were touring with Oasis, and got into it because Liam Gallagher called them ‘Howling Branches’. Somewhat sneakily, Van Conner whacked Gallagher with his bass guitar during an energetic performance. I mean, who doesn’t want to hit Liam Gallagher? That face is just so punchable.
Anyway, here’s Wonderwall.
Looking to augment their live sound, they added ex-Kyuss guitarist Joshua Homme as a touring member. Yes, that’s right: JHo was Alain Johannes before Alain was Alain. Homme was a great hit with the guys in the band and managed to patch some of the cracks between them. But this was temporary at best.
Following the Dust
tour, the band went on extended hiatus. Their deal with Epic had come to an end. They tried to record some new tracks in 1999 but very little came of it. They officially called it quits in 2000.
Mark Lanegan joined QotSA the same year, reuniting with Homme.
Their music, the product of so much conflict, does stand the test of time and is worth a listen.
Screaming Trees fans have been beset with tragedy in the last couple of years, with the sad passing of Mark Lanegan in February of 2022 and Van Conner in January of 2023.
The band now belongs to the ages. If you haven’t already discovered them, now is your chance. Links to QOTSA
Much of Screaming Trees roots (pun 100% intended) are intertwined with that of QotSA. Josh Homme himself was a touring rhythm guitarist for the band from 1996-1998.
Then of course there is the most obvious connection, that being the ever powerful presence of
satan himself Mark Lanegan.
The late, great vocalist toured and recorded with Our Boys
for five of their seven albums, enough to be a full member in his own right. And even if you’re new, and you don't know him by name yet, I can bet that you’re enjoyed that raspy vocal delivery on many a QotSA track without even knowing it.
The other members also have some slight connections to either Josh or his ever changing entourage of musical monarchs. Lead guitarist of ST, Gary Lee Conner, has released music featuring our ginger Elvis. His brother, the late Van Conner, was the first studio bassist for QotSA, and his basswork can be found on both the Kyuss / Queens of the Stone Age
EP and the Gamma Ray
One of the two drummers of Screaming Trees has also been touched by the holy hand of Homme. Barrett Martin was one of the many contributing guest artists on Rated R, providing some percussion, steel drums, and vibraphone as needed on The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret, Better Living Through Chemistry, Lightning Song,
and I Think I Lost My Headache.
This band was truly well entwined with the one we all know so well. I could hardly be-leaf
it! Sorry, im really branching
off with these tree puns. Man, I'm such a sap
for these. I’d come up with more, but I think I'm feeling a bit stumped.
If you made it this far, please, do not downvote the post because of my terrible jokes, I’ll be back on medication to avoid them in the future. At least I will if it stops giving me kidney stones.

The primary meanings of the noun "whammy", of American-English origin, are: – an evil spell or curse, as in the phrase to put the whammy on somebody
, – and a supernatural power bringing bad luck.
This word seems to be derived from the onomatopoeic noun wham
, denoting (the sound produced by) a forceful blow or impact. The earliest occurrences of whammy
found indicate that this word arose in baseball parlance, and in the north-eastern states of Pennsylvania and New York.
The first is from the column Chilly Sauce
, by Charles Joseph ‘Chilly’ Doyle (1884-1959), in the Pittsburgh Gazette Times
of Saturday 14th May 1927where whammy
was used attributively:
And he looks to me like a wish pitcher,” said [Donie] Bush, “besides his remarkable skill he seems to have the faculty of making a batter go after bad balls, even when Aleck is in the hole. I guess he has a ‘whammy’ ball or something. He makes you go after it whether you want to or not.
The second-earliest occurrence of whammy
is from Nize Boys
, by Jimmy Powers, published in the Daily News
of Friday 17th April 1931—the author gave an account of a baseball match between the New York Giants and the Philadelphia team at Baker Bowl, Philadelphia:
Ha, I guess our Giants are pretty good at staving off the old whammy or bad luck ghost, eh? You see this nightmarish Baker bowl is no bigger than your grandmother’s china closet […].
Another early instance is from the column Breezes from the Bushes
, by “Doc” Silva, in the Reading Times
(Reading, Pa) of Friday 2nd September 1932:
Lefty Tezak, former Bird, who has been hurling for the Birdsboro Lions, put the whammy on the West Monocacy club Sunday, allowing three hits and beating them, 6 to 1.
The noun whammy
soon came to be used in the sense of a potent force or attack. The following, for example, is from the column Joe Williams Says
, in The Pittsburgh Press
of Friday 25th February 1938:
To many of the cauliflower savants it seemed as if Joe Louis displayed extraordinary savagery in putting the crusher or whammy on Natie Mann in the recent blood letting at the Garden. DOUBLE WHAMMY
The primary meaning of double whammy
is an evil spell or curse that is more potent than a normal whammy. One of the earliest occurrences suggests that this term originated in boxing. In the column At Random In Sportdom
, by Al Del Greco, in the Bergen Evening Record
(Hackensack, New Jersey) of Friday 29th April 1938:
Every day the dope points to the fact that Joe Louis will knock out Max Schmeling when they meet in the Yankee Stadium, June 22. Max will go into the ring with what Murray Robinson calls a double whammy for Jack Dempsey and Gene Tunney, both former heavyweight champions, have picked Mox to stiffen Joe. Anytime a heavyweight champ puts the whammy on a fighter, he’s done just as sure as shooting. A double whammy is a certain hex.
In early use, double whammy
was especially associated with the American boxer and boxing manager Benjamin ‘Evil Eye’ Finkle (1899-1978), who reputedly hexed his fighters’ opponents; according to Donald Dewey in Ray Arcel: A Boxing Biography
(2012), Finkle explained “that his perennially bloodshot right eye had evil powers that he could direct at will against opposition boxers
Benjamin Finkle appeared in the second-earliest instance of double whammy
; the following is from Ben Evil Eye Finkle and Sam Sobel Sign Famous Presto Peace Pact
, by Everett Clay, published in The Miami Herald
of Wednesday 21st February 1940:
Though no one saw the punch, McAvoy suddenly went into a swirl, rocked convulsively and fell, landing agonizingly in a supine position. The house was in bedlam. No one actually knew what happened. But the “Eye,” held his ground. He looked fixedly at the referee, casting a “Double Whammy” as he later explained, and the official picked up the prostrate form.
One of the earliest occurrences of double whammy
in its current sense of a twofold blow or setback is from The Montgomery Advertiser
of Monday 31st May 1943:
The Cincinnati Reds lost their fifth consecutive Sunday doubleheader today—this time it was the Brooklyn Dodgers who put the double whammy on the Queen City boys by scores of 6 to 0 and 10 to 6 before a crowd of 22,146. INFLUENCE OF LI’L ABNER
Both the terms whammy
and double whammy
were popularized by the American cartoonist Al Capp (Alfred Gerald Caplin – 1909-79) in the comic strip Li’l Abner
(1934-77): the character Evil-Eye Fleegle—said to be based on Benjamin ‘Evil Eye’ Finkle—could paralyze someone with the sheer power of his gaze, single whammy
denoting a look with one eye, and double whammy
a look with both eyes. Evil-Eye Fleegle described his powers in these episodes of Li’l Abner
, published in 1948: https://preview.redd.it/bj5o4bznt3sa1.png?width=906&format=png&auto=webp&s=6f896db4141dadc2bb694ffcdeba46a27d188797 https://preview.redd.it/b3kao3mvt3sa1.png?width=1023&format=png&auto=webp&s=fe2325c2bd27ad280202e95605cf323759532115 Source
2023.03.29 10:00 LongjumpingSpite3342 The A-10 isn't bad (in terms of desert storm)
It has astounded me how people have failed to take into doctrinal considerations when speaking about aircraft weapons systems. This is especially a problem for the A-10 as most of the reason for its "poor" service record was not so much due to the airframe but the tactical and strategic employment of the A-10.
NOTE: I may be the idiot here because i have not checked for other posts defending the A-10. Please do NOT notify me if I'm just repeating stuff (just let me be dumb).

(friendly fire incidents) https://www.af.mil/News/Article-Display/Article/126323/training-communication-key-to-success-for-a-10-pilots/
A MK82 500lb bomb, the smallest in common US inventory at the time of desert storm has a minimum 100% kill radius of 32 METERS.
This only counting the 100% lethality radius, the actual danger radius can extend out to 100 meters. Factoring bombing accuracy issues (for the MK84 1000lb) could result in a deviation of up to 200ft (49 meters). These factors were known to Command from pre war exercises and testing. Bombs would most often be dropped from high altitude either from dives, CCRP using the ground radar. Note this ground radar (on the f-16) could Not distinguish the Vehicle type or had any sort of IFF.
Visual spotting was completely the norm back in the 1990s. Pilots were expect to train with visual spotting and were more than expected to regularly use visual spotting as a final means of target recognition and PID if at all possible. It has been a thing for the past century. However due to the ground fire threat of desert storm only the A-10 is mentioned as having the specific mission type of "Look and See" Given the rest of the more vulnerable aircraft that were less suited for low altitude flight remained at high altitude. This wasn't just of out ground fire concerns either, With the F-16s and F-15s having significantly lower efficiency at lower altitude compared to the A-10 which did not suffer as much at low altitude. Weather you think "Look and see" missions were a tactical error or not has little do with the aircraft flying the sortie. The fact is if an F-15 or F-16 flew similar missions regularly would have likely had similar if not worse performance or not than the A-10.
LGBs in desert storm were relatively rare being only 6.7 percent of weapons employed in desert storm. Only the F-111 and F-117 were configured to carry LGBs at the start of the war. A trivial amount of F-15Es were equipped with pods for LGBs (only 6 pods were available for F-15Es). The F-16s in desert storm were only equipped with the AAQ-13 Nav pod and not the AAQ-14 targeting pod.
A small side note A-10s ended up firing the most AGM-65 mavericks out of any aircraft in desert storm. firing 4,801 AGM-65s of all variety. This accounts to about 90% of all maverick's fired in DS and overall with pretty decent effectiveness. High explosive variants were not widely in service at the time of DS with only 35 of the AGM-65Es being supplied to the USMC. I'm not sure why flying fast=better platform for CAS but in this case i can guess that flying at lower altitudes at slower speeds helped A-10s find and target better than faster F-16s.
So if you aren't familiar with USAF doctrine, Ground troops don't willy nilly call in CAS missions. This is a job for JTACs or Joint Air tactical air controllers. These men are more than familiar with an aircrafts weapons systems and capabilities. They require specific parameters in order to employ and direct aircraft onto targets. One of these key parameters is the danger close range. JTACS typpicaly dont call in stikes that may violate mission parameters.
The 500lb bomb has a danger close radius of 230 meters,
A gbu-12 has a danger close radius of 170 meters,
And the "inaccurate" "friendly killer" "dangerous" GAU-8 has a danger close of 65 meters.
Hell even the apache's and cobras 20mm and 30mm had limits of 75 meters (300M increasing to 85 at 1000M) and 70 meters (at 500m increasing to 75m at 1000m). The M-151 unguided rocket (launched from helicopter) having a danger close zone of 140m (300m) up to 405M (3 kilometers). the M-229 (launched from helicopter) having an accuracy of 145M-410M (300M-3 kilometers respectively). For aircraft launched rockets this was 365m at med alt and 225m at low alt (individual rocket types not given). Funny enough the "less accurate" M61 Vulcan only has a danger close radius of 60m.
However it is to be noted that the M61 is less effective than all above listed weapons and is significantly less capable against armor than the GAU-8. The GAU-8 30mm DU having reportedly 14 times more kinetic energy than an 20mm M61 Vulcan round and more explosive mass (for HE rounds).
So where does this leave us? What do i mean? Wham am i trying to say?
The A-10 In desert storm was one of the most capable CAS aircraft in theater. It is unfair to compare the A-10 to F-111, F-16, and F-15 because The A-10 was often tasked with missions these other aircraft simply did not do. These missions being inherently more hazardous and more prone to human error than other more "planned" missions assigned to strike aircraft. The A-10 is a fundamentally different aircraft than the F-16 and F-15 and should not be judged by the same standard.
The Strike fighters (F-15,F-16, and F-111) could not do The A-10's job of CAS better than it can, on the contrary the A-10 can perform strike missions just as well as the strike fighters can. The A-10s use in close in CAS missions throughout its service life brought it closer to friendly troops than the strike fighters were allowed to go. The nature of its mission set being inherently more prone to blue on blue and blue on green incidents than other mission types.
Most of its friendly fire incidents in desert storm weren't even due to the inaccuracy of its weapons system but more due to misinformation and lack of coordination with command. The most notable Blue on blue incidents occurred in "Kill boxes" where the A10s were more or less allowed to shoot on sight. Again tactical error or not, The A-10 is not responsible for the inherent weaknesses of the mission assignment/type.
But why not the helicopter? Apparently the helicopter is supposed to be better than the A-10. Helicopters for a number of reasons are significantly more vulnerable than the A-10. Helicopters are slow enough to be vulnerable to SACLOS ATGMs and AAMs given the right circumstances. Helicopters generally fly pretty low to the ground exposing them to ground fire and non radar AAA fire for the duration of the mission. These were well known issues with the employment of helicopters and led to the underusage of helicopters (the AH-64 specifically). AH-64s were only assigned 88 missions during desert storm and only flew 652 flights. The A-10 on the other hand is only really vulnerable to automatically guided MANPADs (IR) leading to the A-10 taking over a fair portion of AH-64 duties. The A-10 was more than capable of flying at medium altitude and was considerably faster and more responsive than attack helicopters while retaining loiter time. The A-10 ended up flying over 8000 sorties so comparing the two kind of doesn't make sense.
The issue of cost for the A-10 is also kind of irrelevant in the case of the gulf war. Being cheaper is a nice bonus to have but as the A-10 was more or less the only fixed wing aircraft designed for close in CAS missions it made sense to optimize the A-10 for its role in the future.
I will probably making a similar post responding to Lazerpig's video on the A-10 and for specifically detailing the A-10s in Afghanistan.

I know that they say to keep letting baby eat until they tell you they are full, but that rarely happens. My 13 month old seems to eat so much all of a sudden! She wasn’t even interested until about 11 months. Then WHAM! It’s like Saturday in the Hungry Hungry Caterpillar book. Today she’s eaten one baby yogurt with cheerios, a banana, a waffle, a few beans, a jar of baby plums/pears, a sweet potato granola bar, 7 cheese ravioli with squash, 3 veggie nuggets, one squeeze pouch strawberry, about 20 yogurt bites. We haven’t even had dinner yet. Plus she’s also breastfed. Sometimes I feel like by the time she’s done with one meal it’s time for a snack, and then the next meal…it’s very cute though. And she only weighs 17 lbs somehow. I feel like my new role has become gourmet chef.

2023.03.17 02:04 MurderDroneZ-8 Bee movie
According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway. Because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.” SEQ. 75 - “INTRO TO BARRY” INT. BENSON HOUSE - DAY ANGLE ON: Sneakers on the ground. Camera PANS UP to reveal BARRY BENSON’S BEDROOM ANGLE ON: Barry’s hand flipping through different sweaters in his closet. BARRY Yellow black, yellow black, yellow black, yellow black, yellow black, yellow black...oohh, black and yellow... ANGLE ON: Barry wearing the sweater he picked, looking in the mirror. BARRY (CONT’D) Yeah, let’s shake it up a little. He picks the black and yellow one. He then goes to the sink, takes the top off a CONTAINER OF HONEY, and puts some honey into his hair. He squirts some in his mouth and gargles. Then he takes the lid off the bottle, and rolls some on like deodorant. CUT TO: INT. BENSON HOUSE KITCHEN - CONTINUOUS Barry’s mother, JANET BENSON, yells up at Barry. JANET BENSON Barry, breakfast is ready! CUT TO: "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 1. INT. BARRY’S ROOM - CONTINUOUS BARRY Coming! SFX: Phone RINGING. Barry’s antennae vibrate as they RING like a phone. Barry’s hands are wet. He looks around for a towel. BARRY (CONT’D) Hang on a second! He wipes his hands on his sweater, and pulls his antennae down to his ear and mouth. BARRY (CONT'D) Hello? His best friend, ADAM FLAYMAN, is on the other end. ADAM Barry? BARRY Adam? ADAM Can you believe this is happening? BARRY Can’t believe it. I’ll pick you up. Barry sticks his stinger in a sharpener. SFX: BUZZING AS HIS STINGER IS SHARPENED. He tests the sharpness with his finger. SFX: Bing. BARRY (CONT’D) Looking sharp. ANGLE ON: Barry hovering down the hall, sliding down the staircase bannister. Barry’s mother, JANET BENSON, is in the kitchen. JANET BENSON Barry, why don’t you use the stairs? Your father paid good money for those. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 2. BARRY Sorry, I’m excited. Barry’s father, MARTIN BENSON, ENTERS. He’s reading a NEWSPAPER with the HEADLINE, “Queen gives birth to thousandtuplets: Resting Comfortably.” MARTIN BENSON Here’s the graduate. We’re very proud of you, Son. And a perfect report card, all B’s. JANET BENSON (mushing Barry’s hair) Very proud. BARRY Ma! I’ve got a thing going here. Barry re-adjusts his hair, starts to leave. JANET BENSON You’ve got some lint on your fuzz. She picks it off. BARRY Ow, that’s me! MARTIN BENSON Wave to us. We’ll be in row 118,000. Barry zips off. BARRY Bye! JANET BENSON Barry, I told you, stop flying in the house! CUT TO: SEQ. 750 - DRIVING TO GRADUATION EXT. BEE SUBURB - MORNING A GARAGE DOOR OPENS. Barry drives out in his CAR. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 3. ANGLE ON: Barry’s friend, ADAM FLAYMAN, standing by the curb. He’s reading a NEWSPAPER with the HEADLINE: “Frisbee Hits Hive: Internet Down. Bee-stander: “I heard a sound, and next thing I knew...wham-o!.” Barry drives up, stops in front of Adam. Adam jumps in. BARRY Hey, Adam. ADAM Hey, Barry. (pointing at Barry’s hair) Is that fuzz gel? BARRY A little. It’s a special day. Finally graduating. ADAM I never thought I’d make it. BARRY Yeah, three days of grade school, three days of high school. ADAM Those were so awkward. BARRY Three days of college. I’m glad I took off one day in the middle and just hitchhiked around the hive. ADAM You did come back different. They drive by a bee who’s jogging. ARTIE Hi Barry! BARRY (to a bee pedestrian) Hey Artie, growing a mustache? Looks good. Barry and Adam drive from the suburbs into the city. ADAM Hey, did you hear about Frankie? "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 4. BARRY Yeah. ADAM You going to his funeral? BARRY No, I’m not going to his funeral. Everybody knows you sting someone you die, you don’t waste it on a squirrel. He was such a hot head. ADAM Yeah, I guess he could’ve just gotten out of the way. The DRIVE through a loop de loop. BARRY AND ADAM Whoa...Whooo...wheee!! ADAM I love this incorporating the amusement park right into our regular day. BARRY I guess that’s why they say we don’t need vacations. CUT TO: SEQ. 95 - GRADUATION EXT. GRADUATION CEREMONY - CONTINUOUS Barry and Adam come to a stop. They exit the car, and fly over the crowd to their seats. * BARRY * (re: graduation ceremony) * Boy, quite a bit of pomp...under * the circumstances. * They land in their seats. BARRY (CONT’D) Well Adam, today we are men. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 5. ADAM We are. BARRY Bee-men. ADAM Amen! BARRY Hallelujah. Barry hits Adam’s forehead. Adam goes into the rapture. An announcement comes over the PA. ANNOUNCER (V.O) Students, faculty, distinguished bees...please welcome, Dean Buzzwell. ANGLE ON: DEAN BUZZWELL steps up to the podium. The podium has a sign that reads: “Welcome Graduating Class of:”, with train-station style flipping numbers after it. BUZZWELL Welcome New Hive City graduating class of... The numbers on the podium change to 9:15. BUZZWELL (CONT’D) ...9:15. (he clears his throat) And that concludes our graduation ceremonies. And begins your career at Honex Industries. BARRY Are we going to pick our job today? ADAM I heard it’s just orientation. The rows of chairs change in transformer-like mechanical motion to Universal Studios type tour trams. Buzzwell walks off stage. BARRY (re: trams) Whoa, heads up! Here we go. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 6. SEQ. 125 - “FACTORY” FEMALE VOICE (V.O) Keep your hands and antennas inside the tram at all times. (in Spanish) Dejen las manos y antennas adentro del tram a todos tiempos. BARRY I wonder what it’s going to be like? ADAM A little scary. Barry shakes Adam. BARRY AND ADAM AAHHHH! The tram passes under SIGNS READING: “Honex: A Division of Honesco: A Part of the Hexagon Group.” TRUDY Welcome to Honex, a division of Honesco, and a part of the Hexagon group. BARRY This is it! The Honex doors OPEN, revealing the factory. BARRY (CONT’D) Wow. TRUDY We know that you, as a bee, have worked your whole life to get to the point where you can work for your whole life. Honey begins when our valiant pollen jocks bring the nectar to the hive where our top secret formula is automatically color-corrected, scent adjusted and bubble contoured into this... Trudy GRABS a TEST TUBE OF HONEY from a technician. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 7. TRUDY (CONT’D) ...soothing, sweet syrup with its distinctive golden glow, you all know as... EVERYONE ON THE TRAM (in unison) H-o-n-e-y. Trudy flips the flask into the crowd, and laughs as they all scramble for it. ANGLE ON: A GIRL BEE catching the honey. ADAM (sotto) That girl was hot. BARRY (sotto) She’s my cousin. ADAM She is? BARRY Yes, we’re all cousins. ADAM Right. You’re right. TRUDY At Honex, we also constantly strive to improve every aspect of bee existence. These bees are stress testing a new helmet technology. ANGLE ON: A STUNT BEE in a HELMET getting hit with a NEWSPAPER, then a SHOE, then a FLYSWATTER. He gets up, and gives a “thumb’s up”. The graduate bees APPLAUD. ADAM (re: stunt bee) What do you think he makes? BARRY Not enough. TRUDY And here we have our latest advancement, the Krelman. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 8. BARRY Wow, what does that do? TRUDY Catches that little strand of honey that hangs after you pour it. Saves us millions. ANGLE ON: The Krelman machine. Bees with hand-shaped hats on, rotating around a wheel to catch drips of honey. Adam’s hand shoots up. ADAM Can anyone work on the Krelman? TRUDY Of course. Most bee jobs are small ones. But bees know that every small job, if it’s done well, means a lot. There are over 3000 different bee occupations. But choose carefully, because you’ll stay in the job that you pick for the rest of your life. The bees CHEER. ANGLE ON: Barry’s smile dropping slightly. BARRY The same job for the rest of your life? I didn’t know that. ADAM What’s the difference? TRUDY And you’ll be happy to know that bees as a species haven’t had one day off in 27 million years. BARRY So you’ll just work us to death? TRUDY (laughing) We’ll sure try. Everyone LAUGHS except Barry. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 9. The tram drops down a log-flume type steep drop. Cameras flash, as all the bees throw up their hands. The frame freezes into a snapshot. Barry looks concerned. The tram continues through 2 doors. FORM DISSOLVE TO: SEQ. 175 - “WALKING THE HIVE” INT. HONEX LOBBY ANGLE ON: The log-flume photo, as Barry looks at it. ADAM Wow. That blew my mind. BARRY (annoyed) “What’s the difference?” Adam, how could you say that? One job forever? That’s an insane choice to have to make. ADAM Well, I’m relieved. Now we only have to make one decision in life. BARRY But Adam, how could they never have told us that? ADAM Barry, why would you question anything? We’re bees. We’re the most perfectly functioning society on Earth. They walk by a newspaper stand with A SANDWICH BOARD READING: “Bee Goes Berserk: Stings Seven Then Self.” ANGLE ON: A BEE filling his car’s gas tank from a honey pump. He fills his car some, then takes a swig for himself. NEWSPAPER BEE (to the bee guzzling gas) Hey! Barry and Adam begin to cross the street. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 10. BARRY Yeah but Adam, did you ever think that maybe things work a little too well around here? They stop in the middle of the street. The traffic moves perfectly around them. ADAM Like what? Give me one example. BARRY (thinks) ...I don’t know. But you know what I’m talking about. They walk off. SEQ. 400 - “MEET THE JOCKS” SFX: The SOUND of Pollen Jocks. PAN DOWN from the Honex statue. J-GATE ANNOUNCER Please clear the gate. Royal Nectar Force on approach. Royal Nectar Force on approach. BARRY Wait a second. Check it out. Hey, hey, those are Pollen jocks. ADAM Wow. FOUR PATROL BEES FLY in through the hive’s giant Gothic entrance. The Patrol Bees are wearing fighter pilot helmets with black visors. ADAM (CONT’D) I’ve never seen them this close. BARRY They know what it’s like to go outside the hive. ADAM Yeah, but some of them don’t come back. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 11. The nectar from the pollen jocks is removed from their backpacks, and loaded into trucks on their way to Honex. A SMALL CROWD forms around the Patrol Bees. Each one has a PIT CREW that takes their nectar. Lou Loduca hurries a pit crew along: LOU LODUCA You guys did great! You’re monsters. You’re sky freaks! I love it! I love it! SCHOOL GIRLS are jumping up and down and squealing nearby. BARRY I wonder where those guys have just been? ADAM I don’t know. BARRY Their day’s not planned. Outside the hive, flying who-knows-where, doing who-knows-what. ADAM You can’t just decide one day to be a Pollen Jock. You have to be bred for that. BARRY Right. Pollen Jocks cross in close proximity to Barry and Adam. Some pollen falls off, onto Barry and Adam. BARRY (CONT’D) Look at that. That’s more pollen than you and I will ever see in a lifetime. ADAM (playing with the pollen) It’s just a status symbol. I think bees make too big a deal out of it. BARRY Perhaps, unless you’re wearing it, and the ladies see you wearing it. ANGLE ON: Two girl bees. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 12. ADAM Those ladies? Aren’t they our cousins too? BARRY Distant, distant. ANGLE ON: TWO POLLEN JOCKS. JACKSON Look at these two. SPLITZ Couple of Hive Harrys. JACKSON Let’s have some fun with them. The pollen jocks approach. Barry and Adam continue to talk to the girls. GIRL 1 It must be so dangerous being a pollen jock. BARRY Oh yeah, one time a bear had me pinned up against a mushroom. He had one paw on my throat, and with the other he was slapping me back and forth across the face. GIRL 1 Oh my. BARRY I never thought I’d knock him out. GIRL 2 (to Adam) And what were you doing during all of this? ADAM Obviously I was trying to alert the authorities. The girl swipes some pollen off of Adam with a finger. BARRY (re: pollen) I can autograph that if you want. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 13. JACKSON Little gusty out there today, wasn’t it, comrades? BARRY Yeah. Gusty. BUZZ You know, we’re going to hit a sunflower patch about six miles from here tomorrow. BARRY Six miles, huh? ADAM (whispering) Barry. BUZZ It’s a puddle-jump for us. But maybe you’re not up for it. BARRY Maybe I am. ADAM (whispering louder) You are not! BUZZ We’re going, oh-nine hundred at JGate. ADAM (re: j-gate) Whoa. BUZZ (leaning in, on top of Barry) What do you think, Buzzy Boy? Are you bee enough? BARRY I might be. It all depends on what oh-nine hundred means. CUT TO: SEQ. 450 - “THE BALCONY” "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 14. INT. BENSON HOUSE BALCONY - LATER Barry is standing on the balcony alone, looking out over the city. Martin Benson ENTERS, sneaks up behind Barry and gooses him in his ribs. MARTIN BENSON Honex! BARRY Oh, Dad. You surprised me. MARTIN BENSON (laughing) Have you decided what you’re interested in, Son? BARRY Well, there’s a lot of choices. MARTIN BENSON But you only get one. Martin LAUGHS. BARRY Dad, do you ever get bored doing the same job every day? MARTIN BENSON Son, let me tell you something about stirring. (making the stirring motion) You grab that stick and you just move it around, and you stir it around. You get yourself into a rhythm, it’s a beautiful thing. BARRY You know dad, the more I think about it, maybe the honey field just isn’t right for me. MARTIN BENSON And you were thinking of what, making balloon animals? That’s a bad job for a guy with a stinger. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 15. BARRY Well no... MARTIN BENSON Janet, your son’s not sure he wants to go into honey. JANET BENSON Oh Barry, you are so funny sometimes. BARRY I’m not trying to be funny. MARTIN BENSON You’re not funny, you’re going into honey. Our son, the stirrer. JANET BENSON You’re going to be a stirrer?! BARRY No one’s listening to me. MARTIN BENSON Wait until you see the sticks I have for you. BARRY I can say anything I want right now. I’m going to get an ant tattoo. JANET BENSON Let’s open some fresh honey and celebrate. BARRY Maybe I’ll pierce my thorax! MARTIN BENSON (toasting) To honey! BARRY Shave my antennae! JANET BENSON To honey! "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 16. BARRY Shack up with a grasshopper, get a gold tooth, and start calling everybody “Dawg.” CUT TO: SEQ. 760 - “JOB PLACEMENT” EXT. HONEX LOBBY - CONTINUOUS ANGLE ON: A BEE BUS STOP. One group of bees stands on the pavement, as another group hovers above them. A doubledecker bus pulls up. The hovering bees get on the top level, and the standing bees get on the bottom. Barry and Adam pull up outside of Honex. ADAM I can’t believe we’re starting work today. BARRY Today’s the day. Adam jumps out of the car. ADAM (O.C) Come on. All the good jobs will be gone. BARRY Yeah, right... ANGLE ON: A BOARD READING: “JOB PLACEMENT BOARD”. Buzzwell, the Bee Processor, is at the counter. Another BEE APPLICANT, SANDY SHRIMPKIN is EXITING. SANDY SHRIMPKIN Is it still available? BUZZWELL Hang on. (he looks at changing numbers on the board) Two left. And...one of them’s yours. Congratulations Son, step to the side please. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 17. SANDY SHRIMPKIN Yeah! ADAM (to Sandy, leaving) What did you get? SANDY SHRIMPKIN Picking the crud out. That is stellar! ADAM Wow. BUZZWELL (to Adam and Barry) Couple of newbies? ADAM Yes Sir. Our first day. We are ready. BUZZWELL Well, step up and make your choice. ANGLE ON: A CHART listing the different sectors of Honex. Heating, Cooling, Viscosity, Krelman, Pollen Counting, Stunt Bee, Pouring, Stirrer, Humming, Regurgitating, Front Desk, Hair Removal, Inspector No. 7, Chef, Lint Coordinator, Stripe Supervisor, Antennae-ball polisher, Mite Wrangler, Swatting Counselor, Wax Monkey, Wing Brusher, Hive Keeper, Restroom Attendant. ADAM (to Barry) You want to go first? BARRY No, you go. ADAM Oh my. What’s available? BUZZWELL Restroom attendant is always open, and not for the reason you think. ADAM Any chance of getting on to the Krelman, Sir? BUZZWELL Sure, you’re on. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 18. He plops the KRELMAN HAT onto Adam’s head. ANGLE ON: The job board. THE COLUMNS READ: “OCCUPATION” “POSITIONS AVAILABLE”, and “STATUS”. The middle column has numbers, and the right column has job openings flipping between “open”, “pending”, and “closed”. BUZZWELL (CONT’D) Oh, I’m sorry. The Krelman just closed out. ADAM Oh! He takes the hat off Adam. BUZZWELL Wax Monkey’s always open. The Krelman goes from “Closed” to “Open”. BUZZWELL (CONT’D) And the Krelman just opened up again. ADAM What happened? BUZZWELL Well, whenever a bee dies, that’s an opening. (pointing at the board) See that? He’s dead, dead, another dead one, deady, deadified, two more dead. Dead from the neck up, dead from the neck down. But, that’s life. ANGLE ON: Barry’s disturbed expression. ADAM (feeling pressure to decide) Oh, this is so hard. Heating, cooling, stunt bee, pourer, stirrer, humming, inspector no. 7, lint coordinator, stripe supervisor, antenna-ball polisher, mite wrangler-- Barry, Barry, what do you think I should-- Barry? Barry? "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 19. Barry is gone. CUT TO: SEQ. 775 - “LOU LODUCA SPEECH” EXT. J-GATE - SAME TIME Splitz, Jackson, Buzz, Lou and two other BEES are going through final pre-flight checks. Barry ENTERS. LOU LODUCA Alright, we’ve got the sunflower patch in quadrant nine. Geranium window box on Sutton Place... Barry’s antennae rings, like a phone. ADAM (V.O) What happened to you? Where are you? Barry whispers throughout. BARRY I’m going out. ADAM (V.O) Out? Out where? BARRY Out there. ADAM (V.O) (putting it together) Oh no. BARRY I have to, before I go to work for the rest of my life. ADAM (V.O) You’re going to die! You’re crazy! Hello? BARRY Oh, another call coming in. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 20. ADAM (V.O) You’re cra-- Barry HANGS UP. ANGLE ON: Lou Loduca. LOU LODUCA If anyone’s feeling brave, there’s a Korean Deli on 83rd that gets their roses today. BARRY (timidly) Hey guys. BUZZ Well, look at that. SPLITZ Isn’t that the kid we saw yesterday? LOU LODUCA (to Barry) Hold it son, flight deck’s restricted. JACKSON It’s okay Lou, we’re going to take him up. Splitz and Jackson CHUCKLE. LOU LODUCA Really? Feeling lucky, are ya? A YOUNGER SMALLER BEE THAN BARRY, CHET, runs up with a release waiver for Barry to sign. CHET Sign here. Here. Just initial that. Thank you. LOU LODUCA Okay, you got a rain advisory today and as you all know, bees cannot fly in rain. So be careful. As always, (reading off clipboard) watch your brooms, hockey sticks, dogs, birds, bears, and bats. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 21. Also, I got a couple reports of root beer being poured on us. Murphy’s in a home because of it, just babbling like a cicada. BARRY That’s awful. LOU LODUCA And a reminder for all you rookies, bee law number one, absolutely no talking to humans. Alright, launch positions! The Jocks get into formation, chanting as they move. LOU LODUCA (CONT’D) Black and Yellow! JOCKS Hello! SPLITZ (to Barry) Are you ready for this, hot shot? BARRY Yeah. Yeah, bring it on. Barry NODS, terrified. BUZZ Wind! - CHECK! JOCK #1 Antennae! - CHECK! JOCK #2 Nectar pack! - CHECK! JACKSON Wings! - CHECK! SPLITZ Stinger! - CHECK! BARRY Scared out of my shorts - CHECK. LOU LODUCA Okay ladies, let’s move it out. Everyone FLIPS their goggles down. Pit crew bees CRANK their wings, and remove the starting blocks. We hear loud HUMMING. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 22. LOU LODUCA (CONT'D) LOU LODUCA (CONT’D) Pound those petunia's, you striped stem-suckers! All of you, drain those flowers! A FLIGHT DECK GUY in deep crouch hand-signals them out the archway as the backwash from the bee wings FLUTTERS his jump suit. Barry follows everyone. SEQ. 800 - “FLYING WITH THE JOCKS” The bees climb above tree tops in formation. Barry is euphoric. BARRY Whoa! I’m out! I can’t believe I’m out! So blue. Ha ha ha! (a beat) I feel so fast...and free. (re: kites in the sky) Box kite! Wow! They fly by several bicyclists, and approach a patch of flowers. BARRY (CONT'D) Flowers! SPLITZ This is blue leader. We have roses visual. Bring it around thirty degrees and hold. BARRY (sotto) Roses. JACKSON Thirty degrees, roger, bringing it around. Many pollen jocks break off from the main group. They use their equipment to collect nectar from flowers. Barry flies down to watch the jocks collect the nectar. JOCK Stand to the side kid, it’s got a bit of a kick. The jock fires the gun, and recoils. Barry watches the gun fill up with nectar. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 23. BARRY Oh, that is one Nectar Collector. JOCK You ever see pollination up close? BARRY No, Sir. He takes off, and the excess pollen dust falls causing the flowers to come back to life. JOCK (as he pollinates) I pick some pollen up over here, sprinkle it over here, maybe a dash over there, pinch on that one...see that? It’s a little bit of magic, ain’t it? The FLOWERS PERK UP as he pollinates. BARRY Wow. That’s amazing. Why do we do that? JOCK ...that’s pollen power, Kid. More pollen, more flowers, more nectar, more honey for us. BARRY Cool. The Jock WINKS at Barry. Barry rejoins the other jocks in the sky. They swoop in over a pond, kissing the surface. We see their image reflected in the water; they’re really moving. They fly over a fountain. BUZZ I’m picking up a lot of bright yellow, could be daisies. Don’t we need those? SPLITZ Copy that visual. We see what appear to be yellow flowers on a green field. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 24. They go into a deep bank and dive. BUZZ Hold on, one of these flowers seems to be on the move. SPLITZ Say again...Are you reporting a moving flower? BUZZ Affirmative. SEQ. 900 - “TENNIS GAME” The pollen jocks land. It is a tennis court with dozens of tennis balls. A COUPLE, VANESSA and KEN, plays tennis. The bees land right in the midst of a group of balls. KEN (O.C) That was on the line! The other bees start walking around amongst the immense, yellow globes. SPLITZ This is the coolest. What is it? They stop at a BALL on a white line and look up at it. JACKSON I don’t know, but I’m loving this color. SPLITZ (smelling tennis ball) Smells good. Not like a flower. But I like it. JACKSON Yeah, fuzzy. BUZZ Chemical-y. JACKSON Careful, guys, it’s a little grabby. Barry LANDS on a ball and COLLAPSES. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 25. BARRY Oh my sweet lord of bees. JACKSON Hey, candy brain, get off there! Barry attempts to pulls his legs off, but they stick. BARRY Problem! A tennis shoe and a hand ENTER FRAME. The hand picks up the ball with Barry underneath it. BARRY (CONT'D) Guys! BUZZ This could be bad. JACKSON Affirmative. Vanessa walks back to the service line, BOUNCES the ball. Each time it BOUNCES, the other bees cringe and GASP. ANGLE ON: Barry, terrified. Pure dumb luck, he’s not getting squished. BARRY (with each bounce) Very close...Gonna Hurt...Mamma’s little boy. SPLITZ You are way out of position, rookie. ANGLE ON: Vanessa serving. We see Barry and the ball up against the racket as she brings it back. She tosses the ball into the air; Barry’s eyes widen. The ball is STRUCK, and the rally is on. KEN Coming in at you like a missile! Ken HITS the ball back. Barry feels the g-forces. ANGLE ON: The Pollen Jocks watching Barry pass by them in SLOW MOTION. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 26. BARRY (in slow motion) Help me! JACKSON You know, I don't think these are flowers. SPLITZ Should we tell him? JACKSON I think he knows. BARRY (O.S) What is this?! Vanessa HITS a high arcing lob. Ken waits, poised for the return. We see Barry having trouble maneuvering the ball from fatigue. KEN (overly confident) Match point! ANGLE ON: Ken running up. He has a killer look in his eyes. He’s going to hit the ultimate overhead smash. KEN (CONT'D) You can just start packing up Honey, because I believe you’re about to eat it! ANGLE ON: Pollen Jocks. JACKSON Ahem! Ken is distracted by the jock. KEN What? No! He misses badly. The ball rockets into oblivion. Barry is still hanging on. ANGLE ON: Ken, berating himself. KEN (CONT’D) Oh, you cannot be serious. We hear the ball WHISTLING, and Barry SCREAMING. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 27. BARRY Yowser!!! SEQ. 1000 - “SUV” The ball flies through the air, and lands in the middle of the street. It bounces into the street again, and sticks in the grille of an SUV. INT. CAR ENGINE - CONTINUOUS BARRY’S POV: the grille of the SUV sucks him up. He tumbles through a black tunnel, whirling vanes, and pistons. BARRY AHHHHHHHHHHH!! OHHHH!! EECHHH!! AHHHHHH!! Barry gets chilled by the A/C system, and sees a frozen grasshopper. BARRY (CONT’D) (re: grasshopper) Eww, gross. CUT TO: INT. CAR - CONTINUOUS The car is packed with a typical suburban family: MOTHER, FATHER, eight-year old BOY, LITTLE GIRL in a car seat and a GRANDMOTHER. A big slobbery DOG is behind a grate. Barry pops into the passenger compartment, hitting the Mother’s magazine. MOTHER There’s a bee in the car! They all notice the bee and start SCREAMING. BARRY Aaahhhh! Barry tumbles around the car. We see the faces from his POV. MOTHER Do something! "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 28. FATHER I’m driving! Barry flies by the little girl in her CAR SEAT. She waves hello. LITTLE GIRL Hi, bee. SON He’s back here! He’s going to sting me! The car SWERVES around the road. Barry flies into the back, where the slobbery dog SNAPS at him. Barry deftly avoids the jaws and gross, flying SPITTLE. MOTHER Nobody move. If you don’t move, he won’t sting you. Freeze! Everyone in the car freezes. Barry freezes. They stare at each other, eyes going back and forth, waiting to see who will make the first move. Barry blinks. GRANNY He blinked! Granny pulls out a can of HAIR SPRAY. SON Spray him, Granny! Granny sprays the hair spray everywhere. FATHER What are you doing? GRANNY It’s hair spray! Extra hold! MOTHER Kill it! Barry gets sprayed back by the hair spray, then sucked out of the sunroof. CUT TO: "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 29. EXT. CITY STREET - CONTINUOUS BARRY Wow. The tension level out here is unbelievable. I’ve got to get home. As Barry flies down the street, it starts to RAIN. He nimbly avoids the rain at first. BARRY (CONT’D) Whoa. Whoa! Can’t fly in rain! Can’t fly in rain! Can’t fly in-- A couple of drops hit him, his wings go limp and he starts falling. BARRY (CONT'D) Mayday! Mayday! Bee going down! Barry sees a window ledge and aims for it and just makes it. Shivering and exhausted, he crawls into an open window as it CLOSES. SEQ. 1100 - “VANESSA SAVES BARRY” INT. VANESSA’S APARTMENT - CONTINUOUS Inside the window, Barry SHAKES off the rain like a dog. Vanessa, Ken, Andy, and Anna ENTER the apartment. VANESSA Ken, can you close the window please? KEN Huh? Oh. (to Andy) Hey, check out my new resume. I made it into a fold-out brochure. You see? It folds out. Ken holds up his brochure, with photos of himself, and a resume in the middle. ANGLE ON: Barry hiding behind the curtains, as Ken CLOSES THE WINDOW. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 30. BARRY Oh no, more humans. I don’t need this. Barry HOVERS up into the air and THROWS himself into the glass. BARRY (CONT’D) (dazed) Ow! What was that? He does it again, and then multiple more times. BARRY (CONT'D) Maybe this time...this time, this time, this time, this time, this time, this time, this time. Barry JUMPS onto the drapes. BARRY (CONT'D) (out of breath) Drapes! (then, re: glass) That is diabolical. KEN It’s fantastic. It’s got all my special skills, even my top ten favorite movies. ANDY What’s your number one? Star Wars? KEN Ah, I don’t go for that, (makes Star Wars noises), kind of stuff. ANGLE ON: Barry. BARRY No wonder we’re not supposed to talk to them. They’re out of their minds. KEN When I walk out of a job interview they’re flabbergasted. They can’t believe the things I say. Barry looks around and sees the LIGHT BULB FIXTURE in the middle of the ceiling. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 31. BARRY (re: light bulb) Oh, there’s the sun. Maybe that’s a way out. Barry takes off and heads straight for the light bulb. His POV: The seventy-five watt label grows as he gets closer. BARRY (CONT’D) I don’t remember the sun having a big seventy five on it. Barry HITS the bulb and is KNOCKED SILLY. He falls into a BOWL OF GUACAMOLE. Andy dips his chip in the guacamole, taking Barry with it. ANGLE ON: Ken and Andy. KEN I’ll tell you what. You know what? I predicted global warming. I could feel it getting hotter. At first I thought it was just me. Barry’s POV: Giant human mouth opening. KEN (CONT’D) Wait! Stop! Beeeeeee! ANNA Kill it! Kill it! They all JUMP up from their chairs. Andy looks around for something to use. Ken comes in for the kill with a big TIMBERLAND BOOT on each hand. KEN Stand back. These are winter boots. Vanessa ENTERS, and stops Ken from squashing Barry. VANESSA (grabs Ken’s arm) Wait. Don’t kill him. CLOSE UP: on Barry’s puzzled face. KEN You know I’m allergic to them. This thing could kill me. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 32. VANESSA Why does his life have any less value than yours? She takes a GLASS TUMBLER and places it over Barry. KEN Why does his life have any less value than mine? Is that your statement? VANESSA I’m just saying, all life has value. You don’t know what he’s capable of feeling. Barry looks up through the glass and watches this conversation, astounded. Vanessa RIPS Ken’s resume in half and SLIDES it under the glass. KEN (wistful) My brochure. There’s a moment of eye contact as she carries Barry to the window. She opens it and sets him free. VANESSA There you go, little guy. KEN (O.C) I’m not scared of them. But, you know, it’s an allergic thing. ANDY (O.C) * Hey, why don’t you put that on your * resume-brochure? * KEN (O.C) It’s not funny, my whole face could puff up. ANDY (O.C) Make it one of your “Special Skills.” KEN (O.C) You know, knocking someone out is also a special skill. CUT TO: "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 33. EXT. WINDOWSILL - CONTINUOUS Barry stares over the window frame. He can’t believe what’s just happened. It is still RAINING. DISSOLVE TO: SEQ. 1200 - “BARRY SPEAKS” EXT. WINDOWSILL - LATER Barry is still staring through the window. Inside, everyone’s saying their good-byes. KEN Vanessa, next week? Yogurt night? VANESSA Uh, yeah sure Ken. You know, whatever. KEN You can put carob chips on there. VANESSA Good night. KEN (as he exits) Supposed to be less calories, or something. VANESSA Bye. She shuts the door. Vanessa starts cleaning up. BARRY I’ve got to say something. She saved my life. I’ve got to say something. Alright, here it goes. Barry flies in. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 34. INT. VANESSA’S APARTMENT - CONTINUOUS Barry hides himself on different PRODUCTS placed along the kitchen shelves. He hides on a Bumblebee Tuna can, and a “Greetings From Coney Island” MUSCLE-MAN POSTCARD on the fridge. BARRY (on fridge) What would I say? (landing on a bottle) I could really get in trouble. He stands looking at Vanessa. BARRY (CONT'D) It’s a bee law. You’re not supposed to talk to a human. I can’t believe I’m doing this. I’ve got to. Oh, I can’t do it! Come on! No, yes, no, do it! I can’t. How should I start it? You like jazz? No, that’s no good. Here she comes. Speak, you fool. As Vanessa walks by, Barry takes a DEEP BREATH. BARRY (CONT’D) (cheerful) Umm...hi. Vanessa DROPS A STACK OF DISHES, and HOPS BACK. BARRY (CONT’D) I’m sorry. VANESSA You’re talking. BARRY Yes, I know, I know. VANESSA You’re talking. BARRY I know, I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. VANESSA It’s okay. It’s fine. It’s just, I know I’m dreaming, but I don’t recall going to bed. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 35. BARRY Well, you know I’m sure this is very disconcerting. VANESSA Well yeah. I mean this is a bit of a surprise to me. I mean...you’re a bee. BARRY Yeah, I am a bee, and you know I’m not supposed to be doing this, but they were all trying to kill me and if it wasn’t for you...I mean, I had to thank you. It’s just the way I was raised. Vanessa intentionally JABS her hand with a FORK. VANESSA Ow! BARRY That was a little weird. VANESSA (to herself) I’m talking to a bee. BARRY Yeah. VANESSA I’m talking to a bee. BARRY Anyway... VANESSA And a bee is talking to me... BARRY I just want you to know that I’m grateful, and I’m going to leave now. VANESSA Wait, wait, wait, wait, how did you learn to do that? BARRY What? "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 36. VANESSA The talking thing. BARRY Same way you did, I guess. Mama, Dada, honey, you pick it up. VANESSA That’s very funny. BARRY Yeah. Bees are funny. If we didn’t laugh, we’d cry. With what we have to deal with. Vanessa LAUGHS. BARRY (CONT’D) Anyway. VANESSA Can I, uh, get you something? BARRY Like what? VANESSA I don’t know. I mean, I don’t know. Coffee? BARRY Well, uh, I don’t want to put you out. VANESSA It’s no trouble. BARRY Unless you’re making anyway. VANESSA Oh, it takes two minutes. BARRY Really? VANESSA It’s just coffee. BARRY I hate to impose. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 37. VANESSA Don’t be ridiculous. BARRY Actually, I would love a cup. VANESSA Hey, you want a little rum cake? BARRY I really shouldn’t. VANESSA Have a little rum cake. BARRY No, no, no, I can’t. VANESSA Oh, come on. BARRY You know, I’m trying to lose a couple micrograms here. VANESSA Where? BARRY Well... These stripes don’t help. VANESSA You look great. BARRY I don’t know if you know anything about fashion. Vanessa starts POURING the coffee through an imaginary cup and directly onto the floor. BARRY (CONT'D) Are you alright? VANESSA No. DISSOLVE TO: SEQ. 1300 - “ROOFTOP COFFEE” "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 38. EXT. VANESSA’S ROOF - LATER Barry and Vanessa are drinking coffee on her roof terrace.

BARRY He runs up the steps into the church, the wedding is on... VANESSA Yeah? BARRY ...and he says, watermelon? I thought you said Guatemalan. VANESSA Uh huh? BARRY Why would I marry a watermelon? Barry laughs. Vanessa doesn’t. VANESSA Oh! Is that, uh, a bee joke? BARRY Yeah, that’s the kind of stuff that we do. VANESSA Yeah, different. A BEAT. VANESSA (CONT’D) So anyway...what are you going to do, Barry? "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 39. BARRY About work? I don’t know. I want to do my part for the hive, but I can’t do it the way they want. VANESSA I know how you feel. BARRY You do? VANESSA Sure, my parents wanted me to be a lawyer or doctor, but I wanted to be a florist. BARRY Really? VANESSA My only interest is flowers. BARRY Our new queen was just elected with that same campaign slogan. VANESSA Oh. BARRY Anyway, see there’s my hive, right there. You can see it. VANESSA Oh, you’re in Sheep Meadow. BARRY (excited) Yes! You know the turtle pond? VANESSA Yes? BARRY I’m right off of that. VANESSA Oh, no way. I know that area. Do you know I lost a toe-ring there once? BARRY Really? "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 40. VANESSA Yes. BARRY Why do girls put rings on their toes? VANESSA Why not? BARRY I don’t know. It’s like putting a hat on your knee. VANESSA Really? Okay. A JANITOR in the background changes a LIGHTBULB. To him, it appears that Vanessa is talking to an imaginary friend. JANITOR You all right, ma’am? VANESSA Oh, yeah, fine. Just having two cups of coffee. BARRY Anyway, this has been great. (wiping his mouth) Thanks for the coffee. Barry gazes at Vanessa. VANESSA Oh yeah, it’s no trouble. BARRY Sorry I couldn’t finish it. Vanessa giggles. BARRY (CONT'D) (re: coffee) If I did, I’d be up the rest of my life. Ummm. Can I take a piece of this with me? VANESSA Sure. Here, have a crumb. She takes a CRUMB from the plate and hands it to Barry. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 41. BARRY (a little dreamy) Oh, thanks. VANESSA Yeah. There is an awkward pause. BARRY Alright, well then, I guess I’ll see you around, or not, or... VANESSA Okay Barry. BARRY And thank you so much again, for before. VANESSA Oh that? BARRY Yeah. VANESSA Oh, that was nothing. BARRY Well, not nothing, but, anyway... Vanessa extends her hand, and shakes Barry’s gingerly. The Janitor watches. The lightbulb shorts out. The Janitor FALLS. CUT TO: SEQ. 1400 - “HONEX” INT.

And she’s a florist! ADAM Oh, no. No, no, no! You’re dating a human florist? BARRY We’re not dating. ADAM You’re flying outside the hive.
