Trouble At School / Visit The Dentist [1.1]
- Sister Bear: [to Brother] If you can hold a dinosaur, you can hold a pencil!
- Brother Bear: [looks at his work] Even the flu is worse than this!
- Brother Bear: Phooey on school! Phooey on Math! Phooey on everything!
- Brother Bear: [shows the mark on his test] I told you it was really bad.
- Papa Bear: Really bad? Can it get any worse than a zero?
- Gramps: Well, it can get worse when you don't tell your parents and don't get on the schoolbus.
- Brother Bear: That's for sure.
- Cousin Fred: I had no idea so many gooey gums can fit into one bag.
- Brother Bear: Well, this way I'll have enough to last a while.
- Cousin Fred: A while? You'll have enough to last until next year.
- Mama Bear: You'd better make sure you put your tooth under your pillow tonight.
- Sister Bear: Why?
- Brother Bear: Why? For the tooth fairy, of course.
- Sister Bear: No way! This is my first tooth. I'm keeping it!
Mama's New Job / The Mighty Milton [1.2]
- Mama Bear: I've got a job! I'm going to start my own quilt-making business!
- Papa Bear, Brother Bear and Sister Bear: [together] Huh?!
- Sister Bear: No! You can't have them! These are our quilts! Mama made them for us!
- Cousin Fred: If you ask me, Too Tall doesn't think, period.
Go To School / The Week at Grandma's [1.3]
- 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.
The Trouble With Pets / The Sitter [1.4]
- Sister Bear: I want something that is warm and cuddly.
- Brother Bear: If you want a pet that's warm and cuddly, you should just get your old blanket.
- Sister Bear: Well, if you want a pet that's cold and slimy, you should get some slime.
- Mama Bear: Looking after a puppy is a round-the-clock job.
- Papa Bear: It isn't something you can just put off until later when it's more convenient.
Too Much TV / Trick or Treat [1.5]
- 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: [off-screen] 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!
- [Mama turns the TV off with the remote control]
- Brother Bear and Sister Bear: [after hearing that they are grounded from TV for a week due to the whole family watching too much TV] But, Mama...!
- Mama Bear: [tries to get them being used to being grounded from it for a week; and therefore, she cuts off their arguing sentence] 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: [grounds Papa from the TV and he gets no TV for a week too] You too, Papa! [to the whole family] For once, the whole family is going to be TV free!
- [This also means the whole family is grounded from TV for a week too]
- Papa Bear: [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!
- Mama Bear: Rain or no rain, no TV for a week means "no TV for a week".
- Mama Bear: Looks like you skipped Widder Jones' house.
- Brother Bear: Yeah. We kinda... did that on purpose.
- Brother Bear: [to Mama; talking about Widder Jones] She's a witch!
- Skuzz: We're going to put the trick back in Trick or Treating.
- Sister Bear: Mama wouldn't be friends with a witch now, would she?
- Brother Bear: Hmm, I suppose you're right.
The Trouble With Money / The Double Dare [1.6]
- Mama Bear: Sometimes when people are so busy working hard, they can forget about other important things in their lives.
- Papa Bear: Even mamas and papas forget about very important things.
- Brother Bear: I guess I've been too busy.
- Cousin Fred: That's a surprise!
- Sister Bear: [been bullied by Too Tall, Smirk and Skuzz] Brother, Brother!
- Brother Bear: What's wrong, Sis?
- Sister Bear: [about Too Tall and his gang Smirk and Skuzz who stole her jump rope] (Some big cubs) Too Tall and his gang, they took my jump rope! I tried to get it back! But they are still not going to give it to me!
- Brother Bear: [angrily about Too-Tall and his gang Smirk and Skuzz who were picking on Sister and stole her jump rope] THREE AGAINST ONE! AND YOU ARE ONLY HALF THEIR SIZE! I CANNOT BELIEVE THOSE GUYS!
- Sister Bear: You think you can get it back for me?
- Brother Bear: [runs of to the park to find the bullies; Too-Tall, Smirk, and Skuzz] JUST TRY AND STOP ME!
- Skuzz: [as Brother Bear tries to cross the log] ONE FALSE MOVE AND YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A CHILLY SWIM!
- Farmer Ben: [after Too Tall and his gang run away] Brother Bear?! What in the Earth are you doing stealing watermelons with Too Tall and his no good gang?!
- Brother Bear: [not lying, he tells a story; but a true one] First they dared me...! And then, they double dared me...! AND FINALLY, THEY DEE DOUBLE DARED ME!
- Farmer Ben: That dee double dare (by Too Tall and his gang) is so hard to resist.
- Brother Bear: [continues his dee-double dare story] I wanted to walk away. But then they called me chicken!
- [Brother ends his story, then apologizes to Farmer Ben as he knew he should not have been in his watermelon patch to steal one of the watermelons.]
- Brother Bear: I am sorry, Farmer Ben.
- Farmer Ben: Well, it is okay, Brother Bear. I won't tell your parents about this one watermelon stealing mistake.
- Too-Tall: Brother?! You got away with it! And you got the watermelon.
- Skuzz: [gives Brother a thumbs up] Way to go.
- Smirk: [also gives Brother a thumbs up] You're the man!
- Too-Tall: Come on, [off-screen] we're going to have more fun at the Widder Jones' house.
- Brother Bear: No way.
- Too-Tall: [as he and his gang stops walking] Oh, really? well, I dare you to come with us.
- Brother Bear: Not this time.
- Too-Tall: [off-screen] Okay, then, [on-screen] I double dare you.
- Brother Bear: Nope. Not interested.
- Too-Tall: [teases Brother] What the matter? Chicken?
- [Smirk and Skuzz are miming like chickens]
- Brother Bear: I'm not chicken, and I'm not a sheep either.
- Too-Tall: Okay Brother...! I DEE DOUBLE DARE YOU TO COME WITH US TO THE WIDDER JONES'S HOUSE!
- [In the spite of being dee-double dared by Too-Tall and his gang, after considering the consequences, he still says "No" and walks home. Because he discovers that there are consequences if he follows Too-Tall and the gang to the Widder Jones's house.]
- Brother Bear: [to Too-Tall] That stuff may have worked before, but it won't (ever again) now! [then, knowing about the consequences, he heads back to the treehouse] See you later. I'm going home.
- [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 backs and run after promising Farmer Ben that it never again is going to happen; as they heard the warning from Farmer Ben. They scream and run away.]
- Farmer Ben: [chuckles] Those cubs make my chickens look tough. [chuckles]
Out For The Team / Count Their Blessings [1.7]
- Brother Bear: Why did Sister sign up for baseball tryouts anyway? Why couldn't she be good at something else? Baseball is my game, not hers.
- Papa Bear: Well, Mama. It feels good to have raised two star athletes!
- Mama Bear: It sure does, Papa.
- Papa Bear: [to Mama] You're talking to yourself. [chuckles] That's not a good sign.
- Mama Bear: You're right. I'm being silly!
- Mama Bear: Listen to yourselves. All you EVER do is complain about what you don't have.
- Papa Bear: What about being thankful for all the things you have?
- Brother Bear and Sister Bear: Huh?
- Mama Bear: It's called counting your blessings.
The Slumber Party / The Homework Hassle [1.8]
- Queenie: Did I hear you say you're having a slumber party? Can I come?
- Lizzie: Sure, what's one more.
- [That night, the Bruins have called the other cubs's parents. Sister's friends and Too-Tall and his gang are sent home. The angry and disappointed parents arrive to take the other girls home; including Mama on Sister]
- Mama Bear: Sister, I am so angry and disappointed!
- [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!
- [Sister sadly walks upstairs to her bedroom. She is grounded and sent to bed. She's grounded; doubly grounded. She has to spend one day in her bedroom and one full week or possibly a month, a year, a decade, a century, or a millennium in the treehouse. In other words: "She is grounded; one day in her room and grounded indefinitely in the treehouse"]
- Papa Bear: [as now Mama is in with a cup of tea] That bad. Huh?
- Mama Bear: [tells Papa what happened as if he had seen the Bruins's living room] 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 Lizzie. And if you don't mind, I rather not hear the word "party" again for a long time.
- Mama Bear: [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 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. Papa takes the letter from Mama and he reads it too]
- Mama Bear: [to Papa after he reads the letter from Brother's teacher] It is going to be that 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 more music, no more TV and no more talking on the phone.
- Sister Bear: What about video games, Papa? [smiles cleverly]
- Papa Bear: And no more video games (and furthermore), until you catch up with your homework!
- Brother Bear: But you do not understand that's going to take forever!
- Papa Bear: Then you better get started with that homework!
- [The scene cuts to where Brother is at Gramps and Gran's house]
- Brother Bear: [about the "no anything"; which means he gets no TV, no video games, no movies, no talking on the phone, no boom box, no popcorn, no rollerblading, no soccer and no sports of any kind until he's all caught up with his homework] And now I can't watch TV nor play video games nor do anything. Not until I get caught up with my homework.
- Gramps: That does not sound unreasonable to me.
- Brother Bear: But Papa does not understand! I'm never going to catch up!
- Gran: I know that the situation seems terrible right now. But you're going to catch up.
- Gramps: You're right. [begins a story of when Papa was a cub who also fell behind with his homework when he was still in school] Just like your father did.
- Brother Bear: What do you mean?
- Gramps: The same thing which happened to him when he was younger.
- Gran: Of course, there was no television back then.
- Brother Bear: No TV at that time?!
- Gramps: Oh no! But we had radio instead. We still have it. But radio was like TV at that time. In those days you could listen to fantastic stories every night.
- [The flashback shows to when Papa was a cub. And he listened to radio shows while he did his homework]
- Gran: [narrating] And Papa loved to listen to the radio. He did it while he was doing his homework. His favorite radio show was "Jet Bear George of the Space Frontier".
- Gramps: [narrating] Only, the more interested he became with the radio, the further he fell behind in his schoolwork.
- [As Papa as the cub is listening to the radio, his father Gramps turns off the radio. Gramps takes away Papa's radio privilege until Papa catches up with his homework. He tells Papa to catch up with his homework; just as Papa did to Brother earlier when Brother became interested with music, TV, talking on the phone and video games. In the flashback, the changes on Papa as a cub turns out that there is going to be no more radio and no more talking on the phone until he catches up with his homework. So Papa in frustration but not crying nor arguing, gets to his homework in the spite of the radio being off.]
- Gramps: [narrating] And I made sure he got it done. I clamped down on him the way how he has been clamping down on you.
- [The story finishes and goes back to the present day. This story is to teach Brother how he is going to catch up on his homework]
- Brother Bear: Maybe Papa does understand. [about his homework; even though he has the remainder of the "no anything" until he catches up with his homework] And I guess that I have not been doing a good job with keeping up on my homework.
- Gramps: The worst thing that you can do with your homework is put it off until later.
- Gran: Of course. It's called "procrastination".
- Brother Bear: Pro-crast-a-what?
- Gran: Procrastination. That means "putting off a job until tomorrow". It's when you know that a job should be done today.
- Gramps: You're right. So from then on, Papa buckled down and did his homework every day. And (even though he had no radio ever for falling behind with his homework, even though he was grounded from it forever), when he did his homework, he became a much better student.
- [So Papa when he was a cub could never again be on the radio and furthermore. But even though he had the "no anything" forever, he did his homework and became a much better student.]
- Brother Bear: I understand, Gramps. But how am I ever going to be caught up?
- Gramps: You may ask Teacher Bob to give you a catch up period. I think he should go along with that. He is a pretty good guy.
- Brother Bear: That's a good idea. But the first thing that I must do is go home and get some of it done today.
- Gramps: That's the spirit.
- Brother Bear: [remembers how Papa did it when he was a cub from Gran and Gramps's said flashback] If Papa was able to do it, so can I.
The Talent Show / The Haunted Lighthouse [1.9]
The Birthday Boy / The Green-Eyed Monster [1.10]
The Baby Chipmunk / The Wishing Star [1.11]
Get the Gimmies / Lost In A Cave [1.12]
- 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 or 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 GIMMIES I HAVE EVER SEEN!
- Mama Bear: You're right, Papa. But perphaps, it's partly our fault for giving in.
- Papa Bear: [gets tired of his roaring in his Papa Bear voice as he continues his story about the cubs's greedy gimmies] 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 CAN'T BELIEVE YOU TWO! YOU EVEN DIDN'T SAY "HELLO"! THAT'S IT! UP TO YOUR ROOM! [The cubs go upstairs to their bedroom] AND THERE ARE NO 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, a century, or even a millennium. It is their punishment for getting the gimmies at the supermarket and on Gramps and Gran. In other words: "They are grounded from TV and treats indefinitely". And it may be forever since it's an entire millennium but that is Brother and Sister's punishment.]
- Gramps: You're having a bad day, son?
- Papa Bear: [sighs; after he grounds Brother and Sister for one whole millennium from toys and treats] I'm sorry about the unpleasant welcome. Brother and Sister have the bad case of the galloping greedy gimmies (but it is going to be that getting away with trouble is never going to be served the same way for our selfish greedy cubs again).
- Mama Bear: The worst case yet. (But Papa is right. They are going to be grounded from TV and treats until they learn to behave and stop with the galloping greedy gimmies.)
- [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 he and Sister have snucked out from their bedroom 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 embarrassed papa.
- Papa Bear: [after Gran and Gramps tell their story about Papa as a gimmie cub] Well, I'm glad that you didn't give in.
- Gramps: Oh, I'm 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.
- Papa Bear: You never can tell what a cave is going to be like on the inside, just like from what it looks like on the outside.
- Brother Bear: Things that seem scary really aren't, once you know what they really are.
- Cousin Fred: I know. There's a logical explanation for everything.
- Brother Bear: Exactly! [voice echoes]
Too Much Junk Food / Go To Camp [1.13]
- 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.
- Papa Bear: I have an idea. Why not we go and celebrate by opening up the freezer and...!
- [Though Papa, Brother and Sister are able to have sweets occasionally but just a little or using it sparingly according to Dr. Grizzly, they want to go back to having healthy food for most days of the week or almost every day. So Mama and the cubs stop him from mentioning "junk food". The plans that the cubs have had is to have a little sweets occasionally or use it sparingly, but otherwise stick to healthy food.]
- Mama Bear: Uh-uh-uh, it is far too easy to fall back into the junk food habit.
- Brother Bear: [mentions the healthy snacks which he and Sister have always been having; either at the mall which is frozen yogurt instead of gumballs and candy, or at the movies which is nuts and raisins instead of popcorn, or when watching TV which is apple slices] Well, celebrate with carrot sticks.
- Sister Bear: And nuts and raisins.
- 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!

- Mama Bear: Wherever did you learn language like that?
- Sister Bear: On a video.
- Mama Bear: What sort of video?
- Sister Bear: [names the video where she learned that name from] "Trouble at Big Bear High".
- 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.

- 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.
- Papa Bear: [as he sees that Mama, Brother and Sister are crying while carrying Mr. Bruin's shovel] What in...?!
- [Mama, Sister and Brother are crying because Mama forgot to get the car fixed before they can go]
- Papa Bear: [sighs] So this is what it's come too! [to Brother, Sister and Mama] All right then! As of this moment, I am calling absolutely everything for today officially off!

- 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!
- Papa Bear: We would someday leave our cozy mountain, to live in a treehouse in the forest!
- 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 Bear and 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.
- 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!
