Plan:
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,

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

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

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

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

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

the sun having a big seventy five on it. Barry HITS the bulb and is KNOCKED

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

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

think they can take whatever they want from us cause we’re the little guys. And

JUDGE Please, I will have order in this court. Order! Order, please! FADE TO: 
SEQ. 3400 - “ADAM AT HOSPITAL” INT. HOSPITAL - STREET LEVEL ROOM - DAY PRESS 
PERSON #1 (V.O) The case of the honey bees versus the human race took a pointed 
turn against the bees yesterday, when one of their legal team stung Layton T. 
Montgomery. Now here’s Don with the 5-day. A NURSE lets Barry into the room. 
Barry CARRIES a FLOWER. BARRY Thank you. Barry stands over Adam, in a bed. Barry
lays the flower down next to him. The TV is on. BARRY (CONT'D) Hey buddy. ADAM 
Hey. BARRY Is there much pain? Adam has a BEE-SIZED PAINKILLER HONEY BUTTON near
his head that he presses. ADAM (pressing the button) Yeah...I blew the whole 
case, didn’t I? "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 89. BARRY Oh, it doesn’t 
matter. The important thing is you’re alive. You could have died. ADAM I’d be 
better off dead. Look at me. Adam THROWS the blanket off his lap, revealing a 
GREEN SANDWICH SWORD STINGER. ADAM (CONT’D) (voice cracking) They got it from 
the cafeteria, they got it from downstairs. In a tuna sandwich. Look, there’s a 
little celery still on it. BARRY What was it like to sting someone? ADAM I can’t
explain it. It was all adrenaline...and then...ecstasy. Barry looks at Adam. 
BARRY Alright. ADAM You think that was all a trap? BARRY Of course. I’m sorry. I
flew us right into this. What were we thinking? Look at us, we’re just a couple 
of bugs in this world. ADAM What do you think the humans will do to us if they 
win? BARRY I don’t know. ADAM I hear they put the roaches in motels. That 
doesn’t sound so bad. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 90. BARRY Adam, they 
check in, but they don’t check out. Adam GULPS. ADAM Oh my. ANGLE ON: the 
hospital window. We see THREE PEOPLE smoking outside on the sidewalk. The smoke 
drifts in. Adam COUGHS. ADAM (CONT’D) Say, could you get a nurse to close that 
window? BARRY Why? ADAM The smoke. Bees don’t smoke. BARRY Right. Bees don’t 
smoke. Bees don’t smoke! But some bees are smoking. Adam, that’s it! That’s our 
case. Adam starts putting his clothes on. ADAM It is? It’s not over? BARRY No. 
Get up. Get dressed. I’ve got to go somewhere. You get back the court and stall.
Stall anyway you can. CUT TO: SEQ. 3500 - “SMOKING GUN” INT. COURTROOM - THE

JURORS Ooh. ANGLE ON: Montgomery frustrated with Gammil, who’s making a boat 
also. Monty crumples Gammil’s boat, and throws it at him. JUDGE Mr. Flayman? 
ADAM Yes? Yes, Your Honor? JUDGE Where is the rest of your team? ADAM (fumbling 
with his swordstinger) Well, your honor, it’s interesting. You know Bees are 
trained to fly kind of haphazardly and as a result quite often we don’t make 
very good time. I actually once heard a pretty funny story about a bee-- 
MONTGOMERY Your Honor, haven’t these ridiculous bugs taken up enough of this 
court’s valuable time? Montgomery rolls out from behind his table. He’s 
suspended in a LARGE BABY CHAIR with wheels. MONTGOMERY (CONT'D) How much longer
are we going to allow these absurd shenanigans to go on? They have presented no 
compelling evidence to support their charges against my clients who have all run
perfectly legitimate businesses. I move for a complete dismissal of this entire 
case. JUDGE Mr. Flayman, I am afraid I am going to have to consider Mr. 
Montgomery’s motion. "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 92. ADAM But you can’t. 
We have a terrific case. MONTGOMERY Where is your proof? Where is the evidence? 
Show me the smoking gun. Barry bursts through the door. BARRY Hold it, your 
honor. You want a smoking gun? Here is your smoking gun. Vanessa ENTERS, holding
a bee smoker Vanessa slams the beekeeper's SMOKER onto the judge’s bench. JUDGE 
What is that? BARRY It’s a Bee smoker. Montgomery GRABS the smoker. MONTGOMERY 
What, this? This harmless little contraption? This couldn’t hurt a fly, let 
alone a bee. He unintentionally points it towards the bee gallery, KNOCKING THEM
ALL OUT. The jury GASPS. The press SNAPS pictures of them. BARRY Members of the 
jury, look at what has happened to bees who have never been asked, "Smoking or 
Non?" Is this what nature intended for us? To be forcibly addicted to these 
smoke machines in man-made wooden slat work camps? Living out our lives as honey
slaves to the white man? Barry gestures dramatically towards Montgomery's 
racially mixed table. The BLACK LAWYER slowly moves his chair away. GAMMIL What 
are we going to do? "Bee Movie" - JS REVISIONS 8/13/07 93. MONTGOMERY (to Pross)
He's playing the species card. Barry lands on the scale of justice, by the 
judge’s bench. It balances as he lands. BARRY Ladies and gentlemen, please, 
FreeThese-Bees! ANGLE ON: Jury, chanting "Free the bees". JUDGE The court finds 
in favor of the bees. The chaos continues. Barry flies over to Vanessa, with his
hand up for a “high 5”. BARRY Vanessa, we won! VANESSA Yay! I knew you could do 
it. Highfive! She high 5’s Barry, sending him crashing to the table. He bounces 
right back up. VANESSA (CONT'D) Oh, sorry. BARRY Ow!! I’m okay. Vanessa, do you 
know what this means? All the honey is finally going to belong to the bees. Now 
we won’t have to work so hard all the time. Montgomery approaches Barry, 
surrounded by the press. The cameras and microphones go to Montgomery. 
MONTGOMERY (waving a finger) This is an unholy perversion of the balance of 
nature, Benson! You’ll regret this. ANGLE ON: Barry’s ‘deer in headlights’ 
expression, as the press pushes microphones in his face. "Bee Movie" - JS

there? BARRY Alright, alright, one at a time... SARAH Barry, who are you 
wearing? BARRY Uhhh, my sweater is Ralph Lauren, and I have no pants. The Press 
follows Barry as he EXITS. ANGLE ON: Adam and Vanessa. ADAM (putting papers 
away) What if Montgomery’s right? VANESSA What do you mean? ADAM We’ve been 
living the bee way a long time. 27 million years. DISSOLVE TO: SEQ. 3600 -

Then, we want to get back all the honey that was ours to begin with. Every last 
drop. We demand an end to the glorification of the bear as anything more than a 
filthy, smelly, big-headed, bad breath, stink-machine. "Bee Movie" - JS

honey would affect all these other things. VANESSA And it’s not just flowers. 
Fruits, vegetables...they all need bees. BARRY Well, that’s our whole SAT test 
right there. VANESSA So, you take away the produce, that affects the entire 
animal kingdom. And then, of course... BARRY The human species? VANESSA 
(clearing throat) Ahem! BARRY Oh. So, if there’s no more pollination, it could 
all just go south here, couldn’t it? VANESSA And I know this is also partly my

Barry flies up to the wing of the plane, and addresses the bee crowd. BARRY 
(CONT’D) Listen everyone. This runway is covered with the last pollen from the 
last flowers available anywhere on Earth. That means this is our last chance. 
We’re the only ones who make honey, pollinate flowers, and dress like this. If 
we’re going to survive as a species, this is our moment. So what do you all say?
Are we going to be bees, or just Museum of Natural History key chains? BEES 
We’re bees! KEYCHAIN BEE Keychain! BARRY Then follow me... Except Keychain. BUZZ
