[Trying to get his potion to work] I Zoc, call upon the ancient elements. The wind that blows, rain that falls, fire that burns. Deliver your awesome power and transform my potion. Clacktiel. [Bangs the fire crystals against each other and sees that nothing has happened]
[To Hova] How could I pronounce it wrong? I made it up.
[repeated line] A wizard knows no such word.
[First words to Lucas] Human! Come with us!
This is our enemy. They do not save ants, they kill ants. He very nearly killed me [sighs] or does that not matter to you?
[To Lucas] Calling a human "friend". I thought that impossible, until you came. [Lucas says to him "A wizard knows no such word."] Very true. Here. [He gives to Lucas the potion that will make him big again]. But just wait until you're outside, before you drink it.
Yay, he saved us! Oh, it's so obvious, I was so dumb! Praise the Destroyer! Wake up! He saved himself. The rest of us just... just got in the way.
[the teaser trailer begins as the bell rings for the interview]
Interviewer: Okay, auditioning for The Ant Bully, the role of terrified ant number 1,697.
[takes a cut, lying the quarter on the ground]
Female Ant: Run! Run for your lives! Destroyer is coming! I am terrified! [wailing, throwing the paper]
Interviewer: Thank you.
Male Ant 1: It is destroya. Come with me if you want to leave.
Male Ant 2: Inspecto Petronum!
Interviewer: [chuckling] Wrong movie.
Beetle: Red! Red, I say!
Interviewer: Uh, pardon me.
Bettle: Uh, what?
Interviewer: You're not an ant, are you?
Bettle: I can do red.
Interviewer: I'm sorry. We need a red ant.
Beetle: I can do red!
[cut to the beatboxer ants]
Beatboxer Ant 1: You want me at number 1697! I'm gonna send this destroya straight to heaven!
Beatboxer Ant 2: You better believe that! Eenie-weenie, weenie-uh.
Beetle: Oh, no! The destroya was come to destroy me, because I'm ant, now!
Interviewer: It is me. Did you just paint yourself red?
Beetle: No! [the red paint falls on the quarter] Yes.
Interviewer: Yeah, listen. The movie is called The Ant Bully.
Beetle: What about the bully rule? I can do real me. Watch this. Yo!
Interviewer: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. The bully rule has been cast already.
Beetle: Oh. Do?
[the interviewer clears throat, pointing the hand, then looking up at Lucas from toe to head]
Beetle: Hey, you're just a little kid! Aren't you the cutest thing?
[he begins to step on the red Beetle on the quarter]
Beetle: I'll like the...
[the title card appears]
Beetle: I'm okay!
[he steps on the red bettle and the quarter]
1st Ant: Hey! Hey, what are you doing?
2nd Ant: Yeah, this is sleeping chamber. Go to sleep.
1st Ant: Don't make me come up there!
Zoc: I'm so sorry. But I must have the final ingredient for my potion. Now what's more impotent? Me completing my life's work for the salvation of the colony- which includes you guys- or your sleep?
1st Ant: Sleep I'm going with sleep.
2nd Ant: Yeah, the second one.
Zoc: Well then I will try to be very quiet.
[With his staff, Zoc explodes the rock that he's on which makes some debris fall onto the sleeping ants.]
1st Ant: That's it. I'm coming up there. [A large rock suddenly lands on his head, making him unconscious]
Zoc: [trying to get his potion to work] I Zoc, call upon the elements. The wind that blows, rain that falls, fire that burns. Deliver your awesome power and transform my potion. Clackteil.[bangs fire crystals together but nothing happens, except they just smoke]
Hova: [clapping for Zoc] Yay. That was great, sweetie. I loved the smoke effect. [To spindle] Didn't you Spindle
Zoc: Craznocks. [To fire crystal] Yooouuu... rock. Curse upon your children.
Hova: I don't think rocks have children, honey.
Zoc: [Throws fire crystal to the ground] They won't now.
Hova: Okay, what's the matter?
Zoc: Hova the potion is supposed to change colour. But it's not changing color, It's not changing color. [Grabs two more fire crystals] I call upon the wind, rain et cetera, transform my potion and Clacktiel! [once again nothing happens, just smoke.] URRRRGH!!! [he angrily bangs them against each other a few more time] CLACKTIEL, CLACKTIEL, TICK-CLACKITY-CLACK!!!
Hova: [Has an idea] Oh, maybe you're pronouncing it wrong.
Zoc: How could I pronounce it wrong. I made it up
Hova: Cross my heart. I will not eat you.
Lucas: I said cross your heart, not your butt.
Hova: I just did. See? Did it again. [to herself] Strange custom.
Kreela: What are you doing? Why aren't you grabbing the red ones?
Fugax: Well, it's actually quite simple sugar-lips. I hate the red ones.
Kreela: Well I love the red ones.
Fugax: Hate them.
Kreela: I love them.
Fugax: Hate them.
Kreela: Love them.
Fugax: Hate them.
Kreela: Love them.
Fugax: Believe me, you find me attractive.
Fugax: Oh, how you tease me with that sweet talk. [barks at her slovenly]
Kreela: Oh. You want some sweet talk? [grabs Fugax by the antennas] Cause I'll give you some sweet talk. Now grab a red one before I pull these off.
Fugax: Whoa, I need those.
Zoc: [stops Lucas from going in the ant hill] Hi there. How are you?
Zoc: Okay? That's good. It's good to be okay. Listen, I just want to show you something if that's okay with you. [brings a potion out and shows it to Lucas] You know what this is? This is the potion that will make you big again. I just wanted you to take a good long look at it, because this is the last time you will ever see it.
Lucas: [stammers] Wha- What do you mean?
Zoc: I mean, there is no way I'm ever making you big again. Ever. [serious] You are a threat to every ant in this colony. Especially to Hova.
Lucas: But I would never do anything to hurt her. I just-I-I just want to go home.
Zoc: Well, if I were you, I'd go find help someplace else, because there is nothing for you. [The crystal on Zoc's staff starts to glow] Nothing. [Lucas stumbles backwards while Zoc stares at him sternly].
Hova: [sees Zoc coming in humming happily to himself but doesn't see Lucas] Where's Lucas?
Zoc: Isn't he with you?
Hova: [confused] No.
Zoc: Lucas? Lucas? Huh, that's weird. Well, he's probably off destroying some other poor, unfortunate colony. You know how they are, destroyers.
Hova: Zoc, what did you do?
Zoc: Wha-what did I do?
Hova: Where is he?
Zoc: He's gone. [Hova runs out to look for him but Zoc stops her] He lead you into a trap, Hova.
Hova: There was no trap. He lead us to food, he was trying to protect us from-from...
Zoc: From what, Hova? What?
Hova: From something.
Zoc: [sarcastically] Oh, something. And I was worried it was from nothing. [angrily] He's blinded you, Hova.
Hova: [angrily] No, you are the one that's blind. You are so consumed from your hatred for the humans, you only see what you want to see.
Zoc: Oh, come on.
Hova: [calmly] Zoc, I see a young pupa, a human learning our ways, becoming part of this colony, becoming an ant.
Hova: Listen to yourself, Zoc! A wizard knows no such word! So what are you now? [on the verge of tears] Certainly not the ant I love. [walks away from Zoc]
Zoc: Hova, I did it for you. For the colony.
Hova: You did it for yourself.
Zoc: Hova, I... [hesitates not knowing to say]
Fugax: He won't make it through the night alone.
Kreela: Fugax, your leg's still broken.
Fugax: Yeah, well, I still got five good ones. Very good ones.
Kreela: You know, I think he really was trying to protect us from something. See ya, Zoc. [leaves the room with a heartbroken Zoc]
