[Quillo jumps onto a remote control]

Quillo:
Uh-oh!

[Quillo has turned a THX logo]

Tiger:
What was that?

Stella (disguised as a cat):
That's just the sound of my heart. Can't you hear it? MMMMMMEEEEEOOOOOOOOWWWWWWW.....

Quillo:
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Spike:
This way! This way!

[Bucky and Spike switches the channel to Gladys sleeping. Quillo falls over from the loud logo.]

RJ:
Okay, okay, we're good! Go back to work!

[Ozzie throws a can to Penny, who throws it to Spike, who throws it to Heather.]

Heather:
(to Verne) Here, catch!

[Verne catches the can then throws it to Lou. Lou rolls the can down a transparent paper roll and then Hammy grabs can by can and puts it into the wagon. Penny jumps off of a cupboard with marshmallows stuck on her quills and grabs a cookie box. Lou tries to hold a plate with strawberry gelatin.]

Lou:
Oh, boy. (drops the plate) (gasps)

[Heather catches the plate of gelatin. Hammy was still catching food sliding or rolling down the transparent sheet.]

RJ:
YES! We're gonna make it!

Tiger:
My father: he had an exceptionally flat face. It was so beautiful, he could barely breathe!

Stella:
Fascinating!

[The mountain of food in the wagon has grown in the morning.]

Tiger:
...inside, I have a multi-leveled climby thing with a shag carpet. COME! I'll show you!

Stella:
NO! No! I haven't told you about my life.

RJ:
Good, good! Going great, going great!

[A coffee machine beeps.]

Verne:
(pointing to the coffee machine) What is that?

RJ:
That is what gets the humans out of bed in the morning.

[Verne and RJ turn to the TV where Gladys's bed is empty.]

Everyone:
AAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!

Quillo:
Where'd she go?!

[Gladys comes down the stairs]

Verne:
Get down and stay down!

[Bucky, Quillo, and Spike hide under a magazine, and the rest of the animals run behind the counter.]

Gladys:
(yawns)

Verne:
Move, move!

[Gladys pours the coffee into a cup. The animals, including RJ, scootch up to look closer. Gladys opens up the cabinet and pulls out a box... with a can of Spuddies behind.]

Verne:
Come on! We've gotta go before she comes back!

RJ:
NO! Not without those Spuddies!

Verne:
What?

RJ:
Lou, Penny, back to the TV! Heather, keep an eye on that human!

Heather:
I'm on it, RJ!

Ozzie:
No! Heather, wait!

[Verne begins to feel his tail tingle again.]

Verne:
The tingle! The tingle!!! RJ! The wagon's full! Let's get out of here!

RJ:
Hey Verne, Vincent, this will only take a second!

Verne:
Vincent?

RJ:
WHERE?!?

Verne:
Who's Vincent?

RJ:
Oh. Verne, Vincent, simple slip of the bear. TONGUE! Uh, erm... Just bear with me is what I... meant to say. There's no bear!

[RJ climbs on the bottle rack to get to the Spuddies. Meanwhile, Heather is trying to distract Gladys by copying Ozzie.]

Gladys:
Hmm? Oh!

Heather:
Lights fading, limbs growing co--

[Gladys kicks Heather down the stairs while Ozzie watches in horror.]

Ozzie:
Heather?

[As Gladys walks down the stairs, she realizes that she made herself sick by killing Heather. She runs back upstairs into her room. Ozzie runs towards what seems to be Heather's lifeless body.]

Ozzie:
Oh! Heather!

[Meanwhile, Gladys is talking to the Verminator on the phone.]

Gladys:
There's a dead white rat on my staircase!

[Heather's eyes suddenly opened. It turned out she was playing dead]

Ozzie:
I thought you were dead.

Heather:
I learned from the best, Dad.

Ozzie:
That's my girl.

[RJ is still trying to reach the Spuddies can.]

RJ:
Come to papa!

Ozzie:
We'd better hurry! We don't have much time!

[Verne grabs to RJ's tail.]

Verne:
What's going on, RJ?

RJ:
NOTHING!!!

Verne:
Well then, let's get out of here because we have what we need!

RJ:
No we don't!

Verne:
What are you talking about? We have more than enough!

RJ:
(snaps) Hey, listen! I've got about this long to hand over that wagon load of food to a homicidal bear. And if these Spuddies aren't on the menu, then I WILL BE! Now, let go of my tail!

Verne:
(shocked) What?

RJ:
LET GO!

[RJ finally grabs the Spuddies can, but Verne gets shocked as RJ loses his balance. RJ and Verne falls off of the cabinet dropping the Spuddies can, jalapeno peppers, boxes, and a metal grape punch bowl. RJ lands flat on his belly, and as Verne lands on the kitchen floor, he hides in his shell. Stella (with her stripes nearly revealed) notices the crash but thankfully Tiger doesn't. But the character who also notices is Gladys, who immediately turns around, nearly putting down the phone.]

Stella:
I'm sorry. I've gotta go.

Tiger:
Stella, Stella, where are you going? STELLA!!!

[Gladys rushes down the stairs and sees that her kitchen is a total mess.]

Gladys:
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

[As Stella rushes in, the coal brushes off her fur from the cat door.]

Tiger:
Stella!

Stella:
Look, it's not you. It won't work, Okay? Because I'm a...

Gladys:
SKUUUUUUUUNNNKK!!!

Stella:
Yeah, that. Sorry you have to see this. FIRE IN THE HOLE!

[Moments later, green gas explodes out of Gladys's house. A cork flies out of the chimney. Just then, the Verminator's van appears outside.]

Gladys:
(coughs)

Stella:
(to Tiger) The smell doesn't bother you?

Tiger:
No. This face was bred for beauty. I can't smell a thing.

Stella:
You can't smell...

[RJ turns and looks at Verne then runs out through the cat door.]

Verne:
To the door! Go, go, go, go, go, go!

[Gladys blocks the door without noticing the animals.]

Verne:
Run!

[Suddenly, Dwayne kicks down the other door while wearing a gas mask. The animals (except RJ who is not here) are shocked.]

Dwayne:
Let's party!

[The animals run away.]

Dwayne:
BUNNIES!!!

[Dwayne accidentally traps Gladys's bunny slippers in a net.]

Gladys:
Aah! (falls over)

Tiger:
Flee, my love!

[Dwayne shoots at Stella, but Tiger pushes her out of the way, getting caught in the net.]

Verne:
(to Stella) RUN! (to the rest) That way, outside!

[As Verne, Hammy, Stella, Ozzie, Heather, Penny, Lou, Bucky, Quillo and Spike try to escape the house by going through the glass door they forgot it was shut and the slam into and slide down it. Dwayne finally has the animals where he has them.]

Dwayne:
[to Verne] Buenos dias... reptile.

[Dwayne finally catches the animals in with his net gun.]

NOTE:
This dialogue is 4 minutes and 21 seconds.

RJ:
NOOO! NO!

Lou:
Verne! Are you alright there? Gimme a hand, Oz.

Ozzie:
Oh, sure. Sure.

Penny:
What the heck happened?

RJ:
It's gone! FOOD! (falls into his knees) GONE!

Stella:
What?! How's it gone?

RJ:
Ask... HIM! (points at Verne)

Penny:
Verne?

Verne:
I returned it to its rightful owner.

Lou & Ozzie:
What?!

Heather:
We, like, worked our tails off, y'know? Like a lot! And the food we gathered was well...you know! And you, D'oh forget it!

Ozzie:
Yeah, Verne. What were you thinking? Besides the log was full!

Verne:
Yeah, full of junk.

Lou:
Oh, so what are you trying to say here? That the food we gathered, OUR WAY isn't as good as the food we gathered YOUR WAY?

Verne:
Your way?! You mean HIS way. Can you see RJ just using you?

Penny:
(gasps) Verne, shame on you! RJ wouldn't do that.

Verne:
You've got to trust me on this. Don't you understand that there is something wrong with his guy? My tail tingles every time, I get NEAR HIM!!

Stella:
Oh, so we're supposed to go all hungry, because your butt's vibrating. I'm started to feel that tingle of yours is YOU being jealous.

Verne:
Jealous?! OF HIM?!

Lou:
Yeah! He is embracing the future there, and now you're just holding us back!

Verne:
I've holded your back, all right... from Extinction! (to RJ) You see what you've done here? If they listen to half of stuff of you're telling him, they will be dead within week! You are only interested in taking advantage of them BECAUSE THEY ARE TOO STUPID AND NAIVE TO KNOW ANY BETTER!

Hammy:
(growing solemn) I'm not stupid.

Verne:
(noting the family's reaction) Okay, I didn't mean, uh... I mean... ignorant! To the ways over there. (they being walking away) Come on, you guys, you know I didn't mean it like that. Don't... don't do this. Stella... Ozzie? (stops Hammy) Hammy? You know I didn't... Hammy?

Hammy:
(pushes Verne away) Look, I'm not stupid...

Verne:
Please...
