Start Your Week Off Right

It's been a very long time since I've done a "Start Your Week Off Right" post, but I've missed it and want to bring it back.  So, without further ado...

Each Monday I post a quote from Walt Disney, a Disney movie, ride, etc. to keep the Disney spirit going... even on a Monday!

Our latest movie night, which I will post about soon, was A Bug's Life.  So here's a great quote from it as well as some trivia I found via
Flik: Here, pretend - pretend that that's a seed.
Dot: It's a rock.
Flik: Oh, I know it's a rock, I know.  But let's just pretend for a minute that it's a seed, alright?  We'll just use our imaginations.  Now, now do you see our tree?  Everything that made that giant tree is already contained inside this tiny little seed.  All it needs is some time, a little bit of sunshine and rain, and voila!
Dot: This rock will be a tree?
Flik: Seed to tree.  You've gotta work with me here.  Alright?  Okay.  Now, you might not feel like you can do much now, but that's just because, well, you're not a tree yet.  You just have to give yourself some time.  You're still a seed.
Dot: But it's a rock.
Flik: [shouting] I know it's a rock!  Don't you think I know a rock when I see a rock?  I've spent a lot of time around rocks!
Dot: You're weird.  But I like you.

Did you know...

* According to the Nutrition Facts sign on the back, the cookies from the box that that Flea's circus travels in contain an impossible 92 grams of protein per serving.

* The Pizza truck from Toy Story, that appears in every Pixar Film (except The Incredibles), is visible around 25 minutes in, just after the circus scene as the camera pans up.

* When Flik is in the city, a cereal box can be seen over his right shoulder with the first half of the code written on it appearing as "A113", a reference to the animation room at California Arts University where many Pixar artists attended.
