Bug forsakes the Hive and leaves it forever in favor of meeting the mysterious Pincer, a bug who lives outside the Hive, deep in his own hole in the ground. But who is Pincer? Friend or foe?

"Kick It Up a Notch" Lyrics (by Darren Criss):
PINCER: Scales and exoskeletons?
Why, they pale in comparison
To a body that is covered up by skin

We get rid of those antennae
Give you hair, and clothes and then I
Add two eyes & and a nose and my boy, that is only
The    be-gin-ing....

BUG: What are you saying?
PINCER: You become a Starship Ranger

Listen, my little friend. We are friends, after all. I used to have my fair share of doubts and fears, and they quite literally almost ate me alive... but NO. I took charge! I pushed it to the limit! So you gotta be strong! Be tough! To coin a phrase, be a man... 

You've gotta 
Kick it up a notch
If you're ever gonna reach your goal
You can't sit around a watch
Your destiny's in your control

Go 'head and kick it up a notch
If your life is at a level too low
There's no attempt that you can botch
When all you gotta do is just give it a go
But then again what do I know?

What I see right there
Is a prisoner
Who's sitting on top of the key

So kick it up a notch
If you're ever wanna be free

BUG: Wow. To be a real Starship Ranger... it'd be the greatest thing in the world!
PINCER: It would, wouldn't it? A bug in a human body. You could be the link between our kind and their's.
BUG: But I---
MOSQUITO BROS: Shhhhhhhh---

All you gotta do is
Kick it up a notch
To dig yourself outta this hole
You wanna have the things they got?
Then you gotta give that dice a roll

Kid, kick it up a notch!
What's the point of less when there is more?
Have a cigar
A glass a' scotch

When opportunity knocks at your door
You let him in and then ya settle the score


Life is short so

Before it's o ----ver

Take a chance and think it through

You'd better
Kick it up a notch
It's the human thing to do....

It's a big, big, universe

So many dimensions
And unanswered questions,
Not to mention, life
What an invention, life

There's no choice involved in what you are given
One mind, one voice, one body to live in


You wanna be a starship ranger
Or is that a dream that you forgot?
You wanna be a starship ranger?
Cause this might be your one and only shot!

PINCER: So here's your choice Bug. You can go on leading your meaningless existence, or you could take everything you've ever wanted. All I ask is that when you befriend the humans, you bring them to me. What do you say?
BUG: I...I...

I think I'll kick it up a notch
I don't care about the queen or the hive 

PINCER: "that's the spirit!"

Kick em all straight in the crotch!

BUG: "yeah!"

BUG & PINCER: who are they to deprive Us of wantin to

[PINCER proceeds to strap BUG into the thingy]


Kick it up a notch

Never give yourself a reason to doubt  
You gotta strike it while it's hot
Cause that's what living is all about

BUG: (same time) I'm gonna be a Starship Ranger!

My dear Bug, it's time the lights went OUT!!!

BUG: Goodbye, Pincer. I love you!
PINCER: Goodbye, Bug. See you on the other side! (Bug is rolled off)
VEETO: I know that we're suckers, but that guy's a sucker!
PINCER: Yes! What a dumbass. Break out the good china-boys. Tonight we dine again!

Kick it up a notch

OH my plan is all about to unfold

Lets put a   twist into this plot!

Bug, go fourth, do everything that I've told ya

When we kick it up a notch

It's blood for us!

 And brains for me!

I'm gonna let this little snot

Be everything he's wanted to be     But only because I know he'll actually

Feed my hunger for flesh

I'll need it warm and fresh
OH, Pincer you're in for a treat

Let's kick it up a notch

So at last
I'll have 
Human meat!!!!
