Olive and Xavier dance off on the distance in their best ant attire.

“Pardon the way that I stare
There’s nothing else to compare
The sight of you leaves me weak
There are no words left to speak
But if you feel like I feel
Please let me know that it’s real
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you”

Meanwhile, back in the lab, a mysterious looking insect with long legs carefully slices through the thorax of some poor ant that was probably just out looking for some meat for his hive. Upon closer inspection, there are jars all over the room. These jars are filled with vile, terrible, awful things. They are filled with mandibles, and antennas, and whole ants - or what used to be ants. That poor ant is screaming too loud and the mysterious insect turns the volume up on his radio.

“I love you, baby, and if it’s quite alright
I need you, baby, to warm the lonely night”

Frank Valli floods the whole lab and all of the ears on the dance hall. Xavier whisper to Olive and she laughs. Not a cute breathy laugh- but the hearty kind of laugh that made Xavier fall in love with her. She snorted trying to fill her lungs with air. He looked into her eyes and felt as if he could see the world in that moment.
