Season 1[edit]

Go To School / The Week at Grandma's [1.3][edit]

Mama Bear: Oh dear, you've worked yourself into a tizzy!
Sister Bear: Mama, I don't want to go to school, I want to stay home with you! I could help you make pies!
Papa Bear: Did somebody say "pie"? I've got the apples an' Shift Cars. All I need is someone with pie-making know how.
Mama Bear: I have an easy recipe for pie. You've followed recipes before, Papa!
Papa Bear: Uh, but not for pie.......I can't make pies!
Mama Bear: Well, I've got a photo album to find.
Brother Bear: Why are you getting the photo album out, Mama?
Mama Bear: I was just thinking back to when Sister was as worried about going to kindergarten, as she is about going to third grade.
Sister Bear: I loved kindergarten!
Mama Bear: Well, yes. Once you got there you did.
Sister Bear: Miss Honey Bear was really nice, and that's where I met Lizzie, and they had lots of toys, and...
Mama Bear: [chuckles] Yes, yes. That's right, Sister. But you didn't know all those things before you went, you were very worried.

Brother Bear: Do you know what a synonym is?
Sister Bear: [mistakenly believes Brother said "cinnamon"] Uh-huh. It is my favorite spice. Like synonym toast and synonym rolls.
Brother Bear: [he corrects her] That is "cinnamon". I said "synonyms".

Sister Bear: I don't want to go to kindergarten, Mama. I want to stay here with you!
Mama Bear: Sister, I know new things can sometimes be upsetting. But if we don't try them, we don't grow and learn. That's what kindergarten is all about.
Sister Bear: What if the teacher doesn't like me?
Mama Bear: Why wouldn't she like you? You're a very likeable cub!
Brother Bear: Yeah, well most of the time.
Mama Bear: I know Miss Honey Bear will be happy to have you in her kindergarten class.
Sister Bear: But I can't go tomorrow! I'm too busy.
Mama Bear: (gasps) Too busy?
Sister Bear: I promised Brother I'd make a picture.
Brother Bear: You can make me a picture at kindergarten, Sister. They've got lots of paint, and crayons, and every color you can think of.
Sister Bear: But I want to hear my storybooks!
Mama Bear: They have lots of books at kindergarten, too. With stories you haven't heard before.
Sister Bear: I was going to build something with my blocks.
Papa Bear: They have enough blocks to build a castle at kindergarten. That was one of Brother's things about school.
Brother Bear: There's a tub of blocks bigger than you.
Mama Bear: What do you say, Sister? Can you give kindergarten a try?

Mama Bear: And so, you went with Brother on the bus for your first day of school.

Sister Bear: Is it all right if I sit here?
Lizzie Bruin: Uh-huh!
(when they got to school, back then)
Miss Honey Bear: Welcome to Bear Country School. My name is Miss Honey Bear, and I'm your new kindergarten teacher! Would you like to come inside and meet your new classmates?
(when it was time for recess, back then)
Mama Bear: (gasps)
Sister Bear: Mama! Why are you here?
Mama Bear: Oh, I just thought I would stop by to see how you were doing.
Sister Bear: I'm having fun! Brother was right, they do have lots of paint colors, more than a hundred!
Mama Bear: (chuckles) Is that right?
Sister Bear: And they do have a big tub of blocks, just like Papa said. Lizzie and I built a giant castle!
Mama Bear: Lizzie?
Sister Bear: Uh-huh! She's my new friend!
Lizzie Bruin: New best friend!
Mama Bear: Pleased to meet you, Lizzie!
Lizzie Bruin: Hi, we're having recess!
Mama Bear: And what do you do at recess?
Sister Bear: Um, do you know?
Lizzie Bruin: This is my first one!
Mama Bear: (chuckles) I'll help you get started! Come on over to the swings and I'll push you.
Sister Bear: OK!
Lizzie Bruin: That's a good idea!

Brother Bear: Huh?
Sister Bear: Suitcases?
Mama Bear: So our reservations for Grizzly Mountain Lodge are all set? Thank you so much, see you soon.
Brother Bear: Reservations?
Brother & Sister Bear: We're going on vacation!
Mama Bear: Well, actually, it's a second honeymoon.
Brother Bear: Still sounds like fun.
Sister Bear: Mmmm...especially the honey part.
Papa Bear: I haven't seen these in ages. I wonder if my serve is still......(grunts) Ow!
Brother Bear: Papa, are you okay?
Sister Bear: Maybe you should just let Brother and me play tennis on the honeymoon.
Brother Bear: And you and Mama can keep score.
Mama Bear: Sorry, sweeties, but honeymoons aren't for cubs. Honeymoons are special trips that couples go on after they get married. It's an old tradition.
Papa Bear: Grizzly Mountain Lodge is where Mama and I went on our first honeymoon.
Brother Bear: But, what about us?
Mama Bear: Well, you're going on a special trip of your own.
Brother Bear: Is it Grizzly World?
Sister Bear: Is it Honeycomb Amusement Park?
Mama Bear: You're going to grandma's.
Brother & Sister Bear: Gran's?
Brother Bear: That should do it. Board games, books, yo-yo. I wonder if I should bring my chemistry set.
Sister Bear: I'm bringing puzzles, coloring books, and teddy.
Papa Bear: Beep beep. Coming through! Hey, what's all this doing out here?
Brother Bear: Well, we are going to Gran's for a whole week. We need to keep busy.
Mama Bear: (chuckles) Come on, now. You always have fun at Gran's house without all this stuff!
Brother Bear: When we go for one afternoon, maybe. (whispers to Mama Bear) and Gran and Gramps are, well, old.
Sister Bear: Maybe they'll want to take naps all day.
Papa Bear: (grunts)
Sister Bear: Papa, what about our toys?
Papa Bear: You won't need all those. You're going to have too much fun with Gran and Gramps. I wonder if the lodge still has canoe rides on the lake.
Mama Bear: And live music in the dance hall.
Brother Bear: (sighs) Mama and Papa are going to have all the fun.
Sister Bear: And we're going to have none.
Grizzly Gran: See you next week. Drive safely.
Mama Bear: Bye.
Papa Bear: Have fun.
Grizzly Gran: Come on, cubs.

Too Much TV / Trick or Treat [1.5][edit]

Brother Bear: Give it to me!
Sister Bear: No way! It's my turn to choose!
[The cubs are in the living room trying to get the remote control]
Sister Bear: WE'RE NOT WATCHING BEAR WRESTLING!
Brother Bear: There's no way I'm watching Little Treehouse on the Prairie!
[The two grunt to get the remote]
Mama Bear: Okay, that's it!
[The remote falls out of Brother and Sister's hands and flies straight into Mama's hand]
Mama Bear:: No TV for a week! [turns the TV off with the remote control]
Brother Bear and Sister: But, Mama...!
Mama Bear: No, sir, I mean it.
[Papa enters the living room with sandwiches on the plate as he's ready to watch some of the hockey playoffs]
Sister Bear: Papa, Mama told us we can't watch TV for a whole week.
Papa Bear: Your Mama's got a point. You two cubs have been watching far too much television lately. [The cubs look upset] Now, If you don't mind, I'm just going to catch some of the hockey playoffs. [Mama takes the remote from Papa] Huh?
Mama Bear: You too, Papa. For once, the whole family is going to be TV free.

Papa Bear: [he sees a TV show while in his workshop] HA! I didn't see that coming!
Mama Bear: [she and the cubs catch Papa watching TV even though Mama had said, "No TV for a week!"] And you didn't see me coming!

The Trouble With Money / The Double Dare [1.06][edit]

Skuzz: [as Brother Bear tries to cross the log] One false move and you are having a chilly swim!

Too-Tall: Okay Brother...! I DEE DOUBLE DARE YOU TO COME WITH US TO THE WIDDER JONES'S HOUSE!
Brother Bear: [knowing about the consequences, he says "No" and walks away] That stuff may have worked before! But it won't ever again now!

[Farmer Ben comes out of the bushes. He is going to come over and talk to Too-Tall, Smirk, and Skuzz about the dee-double dare incident which they just put on Brother when they and Brother invaded his watermelon patch]
Farmer Ben: [to Too-Tall and his gang about the watermelon patch] Too Tall...! IF I CATCH YOU OR ANY OF YOUR GANG IN MY WATERMELON PATCH AGAIN, YOUR PARENTS ARE GONNA HEAR FROM ME! NOW GET ON HOME!
Smirk: We're...! We're sorry, Farmer Ben.
Skuzz: Thank you, Farmer Ben. It...! It is never going to happen again.
Too-Tall: Please don't tell our parents...!
[Too-Tall, Smirk, and Skuzz turn their back; screaming as they heard the warning from Farmer Ben. They do that and run away. Farmer Ben smiles]
Farmer Ben: Those cubs make my chickens look tough. [chuckles]

The Slumber Party/ The Homework Hassle [1.08][edit]

Mama Bear: [after the parents are called] Sister, I am so disappointed in you!
[The scene cuts back to the treehouse]
Mama Bear: You are grounded young lady! One day in your room and one full week in the house!
Papa Bear: [as now Mama is in with a cup of tea] Not bad. Huh?
Mama Bear: You should have seen the place! Popcorn stuck to everything, soda spills all over the carpet, and furniture knocked this way and that! It was an absolute disgrace! And everything that I said about privilege and responsibility! In one ear and out the other!
Papa Bear: Sister does have to share the blame.

Lizzie: Everyone is doing such a good job. I think we should call this a clean up party.
Sister Bear: Let's not Lizzy. And if you don't mind, I rather not hear the word "party" again for a long time.

Mama Bear: [she reads the letter that she got out from brother's backpack which is from his teacher; Teacher Bob] Dear Parent, I regret to inform you...!
[Mama reads it. By reading the letter, Brother has fallen too far behind in his homework, and the letter orders Mama and/or Papa to call Teacher Bob as it says, "Please call me". Then to Papa after she hears from the letter that Brother is falling behind in his homework]
Mama Bear: [to Papa after reading the letter from Brother's teacher] Looks like you and I better have a talk with our cub.

Papa Bear: If you did a little bit of homework every day, it wouldn't pile you to a mountain of work! [shows Brother the rest of his untouched homework] And that is what you have here!
Mama Bear: Papa is right. I am afraid that there are going to have to be some changes.
Brother Bear: Like what?
Papa Bear: [about what the changes are going to be on Brother until he catches up. It is up to him and his homework until he is all caught up] Like no music, no TV, and no talking on the phone.
Sister Bear: And what about video games, Papa?
Papa Bear: AND NO VIDEO GAMES! It is up to you and your homework until you are all caught up!
Brother Bear: But you do not understand that's going to take forever!
Papa Bear: Then you better get started with that homework!

Gran: Of course, there was no television back then.
Brother Bear: No TV at that time?!
Gramps: Oh no! But we had radio instead.

Get the Gimmies / Lost In A Cave [1.12][edit]

Brother Bear: I want one of those rings, Mama.
Sister Bear: I want some stickers.
Mama Bear: Now what did I just tell you on the way here?
Brother Bear: I do not know.
Sister Bear: I forget.
Mama Bear: [reminds the cubs for the first time about not buying toys nor treats] That we are not here to buy toys nor treats.

[When both Brother and Sister make a fuss over about the chocolate covered marshmallow bears. They begin to get the gimmies about it too]
Mama Bear: [reminds the cubs for the second time about not buying toys nor treats] You know the answer. Now put those back.

Brother Bear: Wow! Neat! Glow in the dark flyers! This would be lots of fun to play with it at night. Can I get it?
Mama Bear: No. I told you not more than ten minutes ago.
Sister Bear:: Mama? Papa? Can I get this?
Papa Bear: An apple? Sure.
Sister Bear: Thanks!
Papa Bear: Oh, careful now, you'll bruise it!
Sister Bear: It's not a real apple, Papa, it's bouncy fruit. Neat, huh? They've got bouncy oranges and bouncy pears and bouncy bananas.
Brother Bear: Hey, if Sister can have bouncy fruit, then I can have this.
[Mama takes the toys and reminds them for the third time about not buying toys nor treats.]
Mama Bear: Now listen, you two! It's not your birthday, and it's not Christmas, and it's not Give Your Cubs A Treat Day! So you go and put these toys back right now!
Papa Bear: Give your cubs a treat day? When is that?
Mama Bear: There is no appearance of a plan. But the way Brother and Sister carry on, you thought it was every day of the year.

[Mama and Papa remind Brother and Sister for the fourth time about not buying toys nor treats]
Papa Bear: Now just hang on! We didn't come here to the store to buy toys nor treats!
Mama Bear: [for the fourth time] Papa's right. Remember what I told you about buying toys and treats?
Brother Bear: But that was when we were getting our groceries. So we're finished now.
Sister Bear: And look at how cute they are!

Papa Bear: OF ALL OF THE OUTRAGING, DISGRACEFUL, AND EMBARRASSING BEHAVIOR! THAT WAS THE WORST CASE OF THE GALLOPING GREEDY GIMMIES!
Mama Bear: The worst yet. But it is partly our fault for giving in.
Papa Bear: Well, what do you think we could have done with all those strangers looking at us? Now I think that it is time that we have a talk with our cubs! BROTHER? SISTER?
Brother Bear and Sister Bear: Yes Papa?
Papa Bear: [calls them in the living room for a talking to and family meeting] In to the living room please. It's time for a family meeting.

Papa Bear: [about the cubs's behavior around Gramps and Gran] I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU TWO! YOU EVEN DIDN'T SAY "HELLO"! THAT IS IT! UP TO YOUR ROOM! [The cubs go upstairs to their bedroom] AND THERE IS GOING TO BE NO MORE TREATS FOR A WEEK! A MONTH! A YEAR!
[That means the cubs are not allowed to have TV nor treats for a week, a month, a year, or possibly a decade, century, or millennium. It is their punishment for getting the gimmies at the supermarket and on Gramps and Gran. In other words: "They are grounded from that for an indefinite period of time".]

[After Gran and Gramps tell the story about when Papa was a cub and got the gimmies like Brother and Sister. Papa as a cub, he always had it whenever he wanted toys and treats at Rufe's Grizzly General Store; or in other words "everything in sight". He was like that as a cub each time he and Gran and Gramps went to that store]
Brother Bear: [as the cubs have snucked out from their room and are eavesdropping on Papa, Gran, and Gramps's story about Papa when he was a gimmie cub] It's like how we fussed about the kitty cats.
Sister Bear: And got Papa ashamed!
Papa Bear: [after Gran and Gramps tell their story about Papa as a gimmie cub] Well, I am happy that you two did not give in.
Gramps: Oh, I am afraid we did.
Papa Bear: Oh?
[Then back to the flashback about Papa as a gimmie cub]
Gramps: [narrating] You got what you wanted that day.

Too Much Junk Food / Go To Camp [1.13][edit]

Dr. Grizzly: Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
Papa Bear: [panting] I agree with you, one hundred percent.

Sister Bear: [panting] Gees, I don't get this tired when I play baseball.
Brother Bear: Well, you're running much farther than second base, Sis.

Sister Bear: Do you think this sleep-out is a good idea?
Brother Bear: No.
Sister Bear: Oh, good.
Brother Bear: I think it's a great idea!

Season 2[edit]

The Big Blooper / Nothing to Do [2.5][edit]

[Brother knocks over Sister's milk]
Sister Bear: Brother! Look what you've done!
Brother Bear: Sorry.
Sister Bear: You're such a furball!

Millie: Crude talk is rude talk.
Stacy: And name calling is nasty.

Sister Bear: Saying words that hurt other people's feelings doesn't sound too grown-up to me.
Mama Bear: You're right. Our language has so many words to choose from.

Mama Bear: What are you cubs doing?
Sister Bear: [sighs] Nothing.
Brother Bear: There's nothing to do.
Mama Bear: Nothing to do? Everybody else seems to be able to find something to do.

Papa Bear: Yes. Four hands may clean up faster than two, but eight hands clean even faster.

House of Mirrors / Too Much Pressure [2.6][edit]

Mrs. Bruin: Some little bears have big ears.
Lizzie: You mean Sister has big ears?

Sister Bear: I have big ears!
Mama Bear: [chuckles] Big ears? Goodness, I don't know where you got the idea. But your ears aren't big.
Sister Bear: Yes, they are! They're big. Big as an elephant's!

Sister Bear: Lizzie, maybe you're a bit loud and maybe you talk a lot. But don't ever listen to anyone who says you have a big mouth.

By The Sea / Catch the Bus [2.12][edit]

[After Sister and Brother have to miss out going to the book store because it's closed; thanks to Brother who was late.]
Brother Bear: Maybe I should have paid closer attention to my watch.
Mama Bear: A watch is not going to take you where you have to be. [explains to Brother and Sister about how the time works] It is up to you to decide whether you want to be on time.

Season 3[edit]

Go to the Movies / Moving Day [3.4][edit]


Bear at the Movies: [when Mama, Papa, Sister, and Brother try to buy the tickets] I am sorry. But all shows are sold out tonight. [closes the curtain on the ticket station]
Mama Bear: [sad because all the movies are sold out] We have tried so hard to get some special family time together! But THIS is what happens!

Attic Treasure / Moving Day [3.7][edit]

Sister Bear: What were Brother and I doing then?
Mama Bear: That was before both of you born.
Sister Bear: You mean, back before there was a mall?
Brother Bear: And before they used to put fires out with pails?
Mama Bear: Well, back before there was a mall!
Papa Bear: But not so far back as the volunteer fire bears!

Papa Bear: Too bad there aren't more trees.
Brother Bear: Come papa, come!
Brother Bear: Oooh! Diamond!
Papa Bear: (laughing) I'm not sure if this is a diamond, brother! It looks like a piece of quartz, but it's a real fine, just the same!
(NOW)
Papa Bear: We would someday leave our cozy mountain, to live in a treehouse in the forest!
(THEN)
Papa Bear: Well, not much left of the wood pile! Uh-oh
Mama Bear: Oh dear!
Papa Bear: Well, the mountain soil's too thin to grow trees! Having not enough trees makes it hard for a woodsbear.
Brother Bear: What's for dinner mama?
Mama Bear: I'm not exactly sure why this happened, our garden is so small, and Brother's growing so big, well I'd like to make the garden larger but it's right up against a rocky ledge.
Papa & Mama Bear: (sigh)
Mama Bear: Brother, Papa and I have something very important to talk to you about.
Brother Bear: What, Mama?
Papa Bear: We decided that it's time we moved from Great Bear Mountain down into the valley.
Brother Bear: We're going to move away?, Why, Mama, Why?
Papa Bear: Because there aren't enough trees on the mountain for my woodworking.
Mama Bear: And our garden is much smaller than I'd like it to be.
Papa Bear: And there's barely enough room for your bed and your cubby for you.
Brother Bear: But what about my toys, and my books, and my rocks?
Mama Bear: Don't worry, we'll put all of our things into boxes and take them with us!
Brother Bear: And what about my friends, the deer and the rabbits, we can't put them in a box and take them with us.
Papa Bear: That's true, you'll be leaving your friends that belong to the mountain behind, Mama and I will too, but you'll meet new friends in the valley, and we can always come back to visit!
Brother Bear: But I love it here on the mountain!
Mama Bear: I know you do, We do too. But I'm sure we'll all love our new home just as we love this one.
(NOW)
Sister Bear: I'm glad we moved to the treehouse, if we haven't moved, I wouldn't be best friends with Lizzie Bruin, or be in Teacher Jane's class, or wouldn't have met Sally Beary!
Brother Bear: And I wouldn't have met Stewart Beary or Cousin Fred, or any trees to climb!
Papa Bear: Or any trees for my woodworking.
Stewart Beary: OK, Sally, time to go.
Brother Bear: We're gonna write you first!
Stewart Beary: No, we're gonna write YOU first!

Go Up and Down/Big Bear, Small Bear[edit]

[last lines of the series]
Papa Bear: Your tool belt will be right here waiting!
