"Top of the food chain."
"Well, on behalf of nature, thank you for doing your part in the circle of life."

Another Walt Disney extravaganza gets a shout-out as Weevil relishes feeding a live rat to a hungry python in biology class. This Tim Rice/Sir Elton John collaboration was an Oscar-nominated hit song, reflecting the main theme of The Lion King, wherein a cub witnesses the murder of his father, the King of the Pride. Really! In a Disney movie! Simba runs away from it all before growing up, finding himself, and assuming the role he was born to. The rat would have been glad to learn that in the greater scheme of things, life goes on. Just not for him.
