They have gotten fat. Pretty servants are dropping paper boys into their mouths like grapes. Bear motions for them to stop. He waddles over to the window and looks out. He sighs. He is unfulfilled. Bear turns and a Snow Globe catches his eye. Inside it, he relives the time he and Shark chased Steve down the mountain. It was the last time he was happy. EXT. STEVE'S BACHELOR PAD Steve sits on his stoop. He looks forlorn. He's let himself go. He is staring at a FRAMED PICTURE of himself halfway in Shark's mouth, Bear is giving him bunny ears. Steve sighs, then perks up as Bear and Shark's limo pulls up. Bear, Shark and Steve have a tearful reunion hug. Slow Motion. Steve smiles wistfully as he begins to flee. End slow motion.
