A Bug's Life (1998)
[Hopper is about to feed Dot to Thumper]
Flik: Leave her alone!
Hopper: [pause, Hopper walks towards Flik, still holding Dot] You want her?
[Holds out Dot]
Hopper: Go ahead, take her.
[Flik just stands where he is, terrified]
Hopper: No? Then get back in line!
[Flik slowly walks backwards back to where he was before]

Flik: Here, pretend - pretend that that's a seed.
Dot: It's a rock.
Flik: Oh, I know it's a rock, I know. But let's just pretend for a minute that it's a seed, alright? We'll just use our imaginations. Now, now do you see our tree? Everything that made that giant tree is already contained inside this tiny little seed. All it needs is some time, a little bit of sunshine and rain, and voilá!
Dot: This rock will be a tree?
Flik: Seed to tree. You've gotta work with me, here. Alright? Okay. Now, y-you might not feel like you can do much now, but that's just because, well, you're not a tree yet. You just have to give yourself some time. You're still a seed.
Dot: But it's a rock.
Flik: [shouting] I know it's a rock! Don't you think I know a rock when I see a rock? I've spent a lot of time around rocks!
Dot: You're weird, but I like you.

Flik: Oh, great ones! I have been scouting for bugs with your exact talents!
Rosie: A talent scout!
Flik: My colony is in trouble. Grasshoppers are coming. We've been forced to prepare all this food.
Manny: Dinner theater!
Heimlich: Food?
Flik: Please, will you help us?
Fly: Where are they?
Slim: We'll take the job!

Flik: Try not to look like a country bug. Blend. Blend in.

Flik: [has just realized the "warrior bugs" are from the circus] Your Highness! The warriors have called a secret meeting to make plans for circus, uh, *circumventing* the oncoming horde, so they can trapeze - *trap* them with ease!
Princess Atta: Well, shouldn't I come, too?
Flik: No! Ha ha ha! Sorry. No, no, see it's classified in the DMZ, gotta go ASAP, you know, strictly BYOB. Bye!

Flik: They can't know the truth! The truth, you see, is bad! I will be branded with this mistake for the rest of my life! My children's children will walk down the street and people will point and say, "Look, there goes the spawn of Flik the Loser"!

Rosie: Okay, come on everyone. Break a leg.
Flik: Whoa! You're vicious!

Boy Ant #1: My dad says he gives you one hour before you come back to the island crying.
Flik: Does he now?
Boy Ant #2: My dad doesn't think that.
Flik: He doesn't, huh?
Boy Ant #2: Nah, he's betting you're gonna die.

[hanging on to Slim's leg in mid-air]
Flik: You can't go! I'm desperate.
Slim: Really? I couldn't tell.

Flik: I was just trying to help.
Mr. Soil: Then help us; *don't* help us.

Princess Atta: You don't think I've offended the warriors, do you?
Flik: *You*? No!
Princess Atta: Oh, good. Because, you see, when you first brought them here, I'd thought you'd hired a bunch of clowns!
Flik: [voice suddenly higher] You *did*?
[laughs nervously]

Princess Atta: I think I'll go check on the bird.
[exits left, then enters again, embarrassed]
Princess Atta: Bird's *this* way.
Flik: [laughs with dazed expression on his face] Yeah the bird's that way
[turns to the circus bugs, who have knowing smiles on their faces]
Flik: She went the- What?

Francis: Stand back, ye flies! We are the greatest warriors in all Bugdom.
Flik: [from a distance, to himself] Warrior bugs!
Francis: My sword.
[Grabs Slim and brandishes him like a sword]
Slim: [dryly] Swish, swish. Clang, clang.
Francis: Little John.
Heimlich: What ho, Robin! Justice is my sword and truth shall be my quiver.

[Dot gets a rock]
Dot: Pretend it's a seed, okay?
Flik: Thanks, Dot.
Francis: Hey, what's with the rock?
Slim: Must be an ant thing.

Hopper: Where do you get the gall to do this to me?
Flik: You were... you were gonna squish the queen.
[all the ants gasp]
Dot: It's true.
Hopper: I hate it when someone gives away the ending.

Hopper: Let this be a lesson to all you ants! Ideas are very dangerous things! You are mindless, soil-shoving losers, put on this Earth to serve us!
Flik: You're wrong, Hopper. Ants are not meant to serve grasshoppers. I've seen these ants do great things, and year after year they somehow manage to pick food for themselves *and* you. So-so who is the weaker species? Ants don't serve grasshoppers! It's *you* who need *us*! We're a lot stronger than you say we are... And you know it, don't you?

Flik: For the colony, and for oppressed ants everywhere!

Flik: Hopper's afraid of birds!
Francis: [after being vigorously pursued by a bird] And I don't blame him!

Hopper: You think it's over?
Flik: No, no, no! No I-I can explain!
Hopper: All your little stunt did was buy them time.
Flik: No, please! Please, Hopper!
Hopper: I'll get more grasshoppers and be back next season, but you won't.
[suddenly, a bird looms over them]
Hopper: Well, what's this? Another one of your little bird tricks?
Flik: Yep!
Hopper: Are there a bunch of little girls in this one, too? Hello, girls!
[the bird shrieks]
Hopper: Aaaugh!

Flik: Hello kids! Ready to make some grasshoppers cry?
Dot: It's payback time... Blueberry style!
Lead Blueberry Scout: Blueberries rock!

Flik: You can't go! I'm desperate!
Slim: Really? I couldn't tell!
Dot: Hmph.

Cars (2006)
[a scene from "A Bug's Life"]
Voice: Just get in there. Go, go, go, go, go.
Flik Car: Circus Cars? How can you be Circus Cars?
[a Car Version of P.T. Flea shows up]
P.T. Flea Car: These are the Lousiest Circus Cars in the world, and they're *gonna make me rich*.
Mack: Wait a Minute here. They're just using the Same Actor over and over. What kind of a Cut Rate Production is this?

Toy Story 2 (1999)
[deleted scene, on a set of leaves]
Flik the Ant: Isn't this exciting Heimlich. Our first day of shooting.
Heimlich the Caterpillar: Oh yeah yeah. It's so exciting.
Flik the Ant: You know, I can't believe that you talked them into making A Bug's Life 2.
Heimlich the Caterpillar: [laughs] I can hardly believe it also. There's a little tenny tiny thing I forgot to tell you.
Flik the Ant: What's that Heimlich?
Heimlich the Caterpillar: Well you know, it's a 2 Movie, but it's not A Bug's Life 2.
Flik the Ant: Huh, I don't understand, what is it then?
Unknown Offscreen Character: [Camera zooms out] And Action!
[Buzz walking through chops down each of the branches, including the one with Flik and Heimlich on]

It's Tough to Be a Bug (1998)
Flik: Welcome to our show! You know, we've been doing this act for over three hundred million years. And with bugs making up more than 80% of the animal world, we're the biggest cast of them all. Still, you guys just don't seem to see us so that's why we gave you those special bug eyes. Go ahead, put them on. Neat, huh? So, on with the show.
