Hopper: So, where is it? Where's my FOOD?!
Atta: I-Isn't it up there?
Hopper: What?
Atta: The food was sitting in a leaf on top--
Hopper: Excuse me.
Atta: Are you sure it's not up there?
Hopper: Are you saying I'm stupid?
Atta: No.
Hopper: Do I look stupid... to you? Let's just think about the logic, shall we? Let's just think about it for a second. If it was up there, would I be coming down here, to your level, looking for it?! Why am I even talking to you? You're not the queen. You don't smell like the queen.
Queen: She's learning to take over for me, Hopper.
Hopper: Oh, I see! Under new management. So it's your fault.
Atta: No, it wasn't me, it was--
Hopper: Uh-uh-uh. First rule of leadership: Everything is your fault.
Atta: But-But-I--
Hopper: It's a bug-eat-bug world out there, Princess, one of those circle-of-life kind of things. Now, let me tell you how things are supposed to work. The sun grows the food, the ants pick the food, the grasshoppers eat the food--
Molt: And the birds eat the grasshoppers. Hey, like the one that nearly ate you, you 'member? Oh, you shoulda seen it. This blue jay has him halfway down his throat, and Hopper's kickin' and screamin' And I'm scared. I'm not goin' anywhere near, okay? [Hopper approaches Molt] Aw, come on. It's a great story. [Hopper grabs his antennae] Ow! Ow! Ow!
Hopper: [pushes him against a wall] I swear, if I hadn't promised Mother on her deathbed that I wouldn't kill you, I would kill you!
Molt: And believe me, no one appreciates that more than I do.
Hopper: Shut up! I don't want to hear another word out of you while we're on this island. Do you understand me? [Molt whimpers] I said, do you understand me?!
Molt: Well, how can I answer? You said I couldn't say another word. [Hopper enraged is about to punch him] Ah! Remember Ma!
Hopper: [turns and punches another grasshopper; calms down becoming reasonable] Hey, I'm a compassionate insect. There's still a few months till the rains come, so you can all just try again.
Queen: But, Hopper, since it's almost the rainy season, we need this time to gather food for ourselves.
Hopper: Listen, if you don't keep your end of the bargain, then I can't guarantee your safety. And there are insects out there that will take advantage of you. Someone could get hurt. [snaps his fingers and calls out Thumper who scares Dot so she runs away but is caught by Hopper] What's the matter? You scared of grasshoppers?
Flik: Dot!
Hopper: [Hopper picks her up and brings her closer to Thumper] You don't like Thumper? [he brings her up face to face with Thumper and he snarls and growls]
Flik: [Steps forward] Leave her alone!
Hopper: [Turns to Flik] You want her? [Holds Dot above Flik] Go ahead. Take her. [Flik stands down in fear] No? Then get back in line. [Flik goes back in line] It seems to me that you ants are forgetting your place. So let's double the order of food.
Atta: No! But-But--
Hopper: We'll be back at the end of the season, when the last leaf falls. [pulls a skin flake off Molt and lets it slowly drop like a leaf] You ants have a nice summer. Let's ride!
[The grasshoppers all fly away and the entire colony stares at Flik, who chuckles nervously]
