Ask for sharing the banana

A minion named Larry finds a banana in his box and attempts to eat it, but his one-eyed co-worker named Darwin notices it and wants him to share it with him, but they fight for the banana after Larry refuses to share. Paul breaks them up until he joins the fight when he sees the banana.

They fight and enter a rocket factory, and the banana's carried away by a trapping claw. The inspector minion releases the banana but accidentally releases the rockets also. The three minions together with the banana escape while the rockets explode behind them.

They then fight again to a canteen where they are joined and chased by numerous minions. During the fight, the banana is squished out of its peel and falls into a hole, much to the minions' disappointment. Lance appears with an apple, and the chase begins all over again.
