[ show a bear squat in the woods, as the image dissolves into a similar pose of the bear sitting on a toilet inside of a house ]

Narrator V/O: -- to evolve an fill the void left by humans.

[ show other bears walking through the city wwearing business suits and carrying briefcases ]

Narrator V/O: And, within two weeks, they had established.. Bear City.

Narrator V/O: Although they couldn't talk, the bears went about their lives just like Man had done.

Narrator V/O: Tonight: "Buying a Pack of Smokes."

[ fade up on the exterior of a Chevron gas station, as a Bear in a busniess suit parks his SUV, activates the alarm, and approaches the convenience counter. The Bear grunts at a second bear who's leaving the counter. ]

[ the coutner is manned by a Panda Bear, who acknowledges the Bear's growl by facing the cigarette wall ]

[ the Bear is displeased; the Panda Bear has pointed to the wrong brand of cigarettes. The Bear growls his request again; the Panda Bear still gets it wrong, and the two argue the matter for quite some time - often with arms surrendered in the air - until the Panda Bear finally grabs the correct brand of cigarettes. ]

[ the Bear grabs his pack of cigarettes and pays for them, then gives the Panda Bear a dirty look before exiting the convenience area. The Panda Bear looks at the camera to acknowledge that he thinks the Bear is an idiot, too. ]

Narrator V/O: Thanks for visiting Bear City.

[ dissolve to title card: "Written and Directed by T. Sean Shannon" ]
