** Also, Ray Liotta and Music/{{Sting}} both appear as themselves. The primary purpose of Bee Larry King's one scene interviewing Barry on [=BeeNN=] is lampshading his similarity to the human version.

** Just because the bees stop, there's still the hummingbirds/butterflies/etc to pollinate as well. Losing every bee would still be catastrophic (especially for farming), but bees don't have sole dibs on pollination. In fact, many species don't even need animals at all, relying on the wind alone for pollination, and would be perfectly fine and ordinary.

** The purpose of pollination is reproduction, not maintenance. When the bees in the film stop pollinating, all existing plants died and are revived when the bees sprinkle pollen on them. While no pollination would affect plants over the course of several generations, it could not kill existing plants nor would pollination revive dead plants.

*** On top of that, there's no such thing as a male worker. In a beehive (as well as an anthill and a wasp's nest), all of the grunt work is done by the females. This includes pollinating, which the movie shows male bees doing. Really, the only purpose of a male bee in real life is to mate with the queen, then die.

** "Shack up with a grasshopper". It can mean just being room mates, but...
** The discussion between Barry and Adam about who the girl Barry met is. Apparently, spiders are thought of as very hot due to having eight legs.

** "How about a suicide pact?"
** Barry refers to bees as "honey slaves to the white man," which causes an African-American lawyer in the courtroom to move his chair away from his Caucasian cohorts.

* PlayingGamesAtWork: The director of the Honex Industries can be seen playing a hexagon-shaped TabletopGames/{{Solitaire}} at his computer during Barry's motivational speech at the end. Justified in that at the time, the honey production was shut off and the bees had nothing to do.

* FantasticAesop: The first acts seem to be preaching an aesop against human exploitation of animals, but then flips the message around in the ending act. It's okay to eat honey as long as it comes from sapient bees that give you permission.
