  • [plays the guitar and singing] Little flower, little flower, I like flowers
  • [in a guard's voice] Attention!
  • [to Flip] You're a funny green bee.
  • I've left the hive, Willy, and I'm never, ever coming back.
  • [singing] I wanna sing songs, I wanna be free. I wanna be me, I'm Maya the Bee


  • There's an old bee saying: "Stay in the hive; stay alive."
  • There's an old bee saying: "Don't make clubs with strange bugs."
  • There's an old bee saying: "You can always count on a friend. But I guess I got that one wrong too!"
  • Maya, not so fast! I forgot to tell you the most important bee saying of all: "You should always wait for Willy!"


  • (Get) away from that bee, now!
  • Oh boy, you're so Maya gets grounded. Anymore grounded in you're be a worm.



Maya: Hello? HELLO? [she pokes her head out to see the whole wide world]

Sammy: Sorry KID...I am afraid I have to ask you to leave.

Maya: What? I can't do that. What if...someone sees me???

Sammy: Kid. [he runs away] "What if?" THAT'S STUPID!!! I hate those words.

Maya: Buzz! Buzz!

[The next day...the kid bees sat down on their seats]

Teacher: Don't panic. It's just a classroom!
