Pig: I can't believe that little mosquito has been encased in that amber for sixty millions years. Goat: It's strange, huh? Pig: Yeah. And he's been totally preserved. Goat: That's true. Probably doesn't look much different than he has then. Pig: So being fossilized like that in tree resin is a bit like being immortalized. You're pretty much guaranteed to be around forever. Rat: One step ahead of you. Goat: You can't breathe in resin. Rat: Who cares about breathing when you can be immortal? Pig: Would it be wrong to go through his wallet?
