  • "Sure, it may seem like Mildred's overdoing with this termite, it seems quite defensless, but you never know, termite might be talking sh!t." That is my favorite line ever to exist. Edit: also, "And this ant doesn't have a trapjaw or a stinger. You know what it's weapon is? It fires acid out of its butt. And trust me, if you have butt-acid coming at you, you'd better have an escape plan!" Edit 2: the timestamps are 4:37 and 6:47 Edit 3: the timestamps are respective, like the 4:37 one goes to the first quote, and etc.
