(The episode fades in to an extreme close-up of a chocolate chip cookie; zoom out to Dee Dee eating the cookie; the crumbs slowly fall to the ground; Dee Dee eats another cookie and more crumbs fall to the ground; a stray crumb is loomed over by an ant's shadow)
Dee Dee:*chewing noisily* Cookies! *laughs, then continues eating noisily*
(More ants appear next to the cookie crumbs; Dee Dee picks up another cookie and sees a fire ant on top of it; she screams and drops the cookie; a colony of ants appear at the cookie crumbs at once)
Dee Dee: Icky, icky, icky ants!
(She runs out and returns with her father's golf cleats; zoom out to Dexter in his laboratory; the screen flashes with "DEE-DEE WEARING FATHER'S GOLF CLEATS")
Computer: Dee Dee using father's golf shoes.
(Dexter turns around and watches the action unfold)
Dee Dee: Say your prayers, ants!
Dexter: This is madness.
(He teleports to the kitchen; cut to the kitchen, Dee Dee is still in mid-air, she slowly drops to the ground while her brother appears)
Dexter: Dee Dee, cease this mindless behavior! Have you any thinking of what you are about to do?
Dee Dee: Well, I-
Dexter: QUIET! I am speaking rhetorically. Of course you don't. Allow me to explain the irony of the situation to you: You are about to destroy a highly organized hard-working society, you sub-intellectual lacking broomstick! Ants are a marvel of insect evolution. Ants are-
Dee Dee: Icky.
Dexter: To be respected!
Dee Dee: Icky!
Dee Dee: Icky!
Dee Dee: Icky!
Dexter: Respected! Even though you are undeserving, I have no choice but to further educate you in the superior ways of the tiny titans. I do this not for you, I do it for the ants.
(He and Dee Dee teleport back to the lab)
Dexter: It is here in my astounding laboratory, that you shall gain a newfound respect for the noble denizens of the dirt. For I, Dexter, have used my superior intellects to assemble the world's largest, most amazing ant farm. I call it... Antopia!
(The camera pans up to reveal the entire ant farm)
Dexter: Behold the mighty wonders of the ant kingdom! Observe how they are always on the move.
(Zoom into a few worker ants carrying rocks with their claws)
Dexter: Forever working, forever building, never tiring, ants can lift 50 times their own weight.
(Cut to a line of worker ants; the giant rock from the ceiling falls on one of them; two ants carrying a stretcher run in from the left; they remove the rock from the injured ant and place it in the stretcher)
Dexter: If anyone is injured, the others instantly assist him.
(A security ant comes in from the right and blows a whistle; the line of ants continue moving)
Dexter: ...And keep the line moving!
Security ant: Show's over.
(Cut to outside the ant farm; Dee Dee is seen eating more cookies)
Dexter: Now do you not see how incredible they are?
Dee Dee: See? See food!
(She sticks her tongue out with a chewed-up chocolate chip cookie on the tip)
Dexter: Very well. You leave me no alternative.
(He pushes a red button on his remote; two giant claws come down and pull both Dexter and Dee Dee up)
Dexter: You must learn respect for creatures that are far superior to you.
Dee Dee: Seafood!
Dexter: We will enter the ant world and live amongst them. But in order to do so, we must don...
(Extreme close-up of Dexter's face)
Dexter: The ant pants! Thorax!
(Two ant thoraxes cover Dexter and Dee Dee's torsos)
(The ant abdomen cover Dexter and Dee Dee's legs)
(A set of antennae cover their heads)
Dexter: Activate shrink ray!
(Two lasers shrink Dexter and Dee Dee; they both fall into the ant farm and bump into the walls along the way; they later hit the ground)
Dexter: We made it, Dee Dee! Now we can see firsthand the mysteries of the ants' genius! And with these communicators, we can understand their language.
(A giant light shines in their faces)
Security ant: You there! Why aren't you working?!
Dexter: Uh..., I, uh..., our great admirer, educating sister, you see?
Security ant: Back in line, mindless drones!
(Dexter scratches his head)
Dexter: Yes, sir. Right away, Mr. Ant.
(He grabs Dee Dee and runs off)
Dee Dee: Way to go, Bugster. Now we're both in trouble.
Dexter: Fear not, Dee Dee. All we need to do is conform to their ways, and I am certain they will accept us.
(A giant rock crushes him)
Dee Dee: Psst, Dexter, I'm outta here!
(She leaves; Dexter moves the rock from over him to see the security ant looming over him)
Security ant: Ho ho, I've got a special assignment for you!
Dexter: Oh, boy.
(Fade to Dexter walking down a rocky path with flames surrounding him; he looks at the signs, with the first one reading "Work!", the second one reading "Toil!", and the third one reading "Stop looking at the signs!"; Dexter stops moving and pants; he puts the rock down and one of the ants whips him in the abdomen)
Ant guard: The queen will see you, lazy one!
Dexter: I hope Dee Dee is as miserable as I am.
(Cut to a close-up of Dee Dee's face)
Dee Dee: Okay! A 1, a 2...
(She is dancing with three ants; all of them dance in unison)
Dee Dee: ♫If you wanna dance and have a little fun, stick your legs out front, that's the way it's done. You turn around once so we can see your back, then you go into the kitchen and have a little snack!♫ Hooray!
(Fade to the queen's throne room; Dexter is seen standing in the middle while a group of worker ants all watch; an ant jester bounces by; the ants cheer)
Queen Ant: Well, slave, it appears you haven't been showing much enthusiasm for your job. We cannot tolerate laziness. Perhaps you'd become a bit motivated when saving your life becomes your job!
(The ants cheer; Dee Dee watches from nearby)
Queen Ant: I hereby sentence you to fight to the death! Release Big Red!
(The ants cheer; a giant, muscular ant appears)
Dexter: I am a thinker, not a fighter!
(Big Red tries to grab him, but Dexter runs)
Dexter: Must reverse the shrink ray and return Dee Dee and myself back to normal size!
(Big Red steps on Dexter's back, causing him to drop the remote; Dee Dee gasps and runs; Big Red towers over Dexter laughing menacingly; the ants cheer)
Dexter: May I just say that you are a fine specimen of the genus formicidae?
(Big Red grabs Dexter's head)
Dee Dee: May I have your attention, please? I have a special message for Mr. Big Red!
(Big Red roars; he drops Dexter and stomps over to Dee Dee)
Dee Dee: A 1, a 2... ♫If you wanna dance and have a little fun, stick your legs out front, that's the way it's done. You turn around once so we can see your back, then you go into the kitchen and have a little snack!♫
(Big Red dances along to Dee Dee's song; Dexter picks up the shrink ray remote)
Dexter: Let's get big, Dee Dee!
(He activates the shrink ray and both Dexter and Dee Dee crash out of the ant farm)
Dee Dee: Gee, Dexter, you were right. The ants *she looks at Dexter and frowns* are amazing.
(Dexter is seen stomping on a few ants)
Dexter: Take this, and this, and this! How about that one, and this one, and that one!
