Seasons: 1 2 3 | MainThe following is a list of quotes from the first season of The Berenstain Bears.
=== Trouble At School / Visit The Dentist [1.1] ===
[first lines of the series]
Brother Bear: [voice over and first lines; just like from the book adaptation of said episode The Berenstain Bears and the Trouble at School] "When a problem at school is kept secret too long, it can grow until a cub thinks everything is wrong!"Sister Bear: [to Brother; as she sees Brother still playing with his dinosaur models] If you can hold a (model) dinosaur, you can hold a pencil!
[While Brother had been having fun at home and not working, his fellow student cubs had been hard on work. In math, Brother's students were learning about a new math lesson. First they learned about multiplication. Now, they were learning about division. Indeed, they learned multiplication and division. They learned multiplication and division facts from 0 to 9. Brother is supposed to be studying for the division quiz. He has not studied the work folder of math homework since Monday. His math homework was about multiplication and division][Before the division quiz starts]
Teacher Bob: If you all take your seats, we can all get started on the math (division) test.
[Teacher Bob certainly hopes that Brother studied the math folder. Because today is the division quiz]Teacher Bob: [to the other student cubs] Goodbye, kids. See you tomorrow. (Remember, anyone with four or more mistakes must go home, have your parents sign the test, and study all weekend. And you can retake the division quiz on Monday.)
[Every cub in Teacher Bob's class did great on the division quiz except Brother who got every division problem wrong. Even though most of the students did great, there was one "F" and that was Brother]
Brother Bear: Uh oh...! This can't be good...!
Teacher Bob: I'm afraid it isn't, Brother!
[Teacher Bob then reveals the division quiz. Not only did Brother get all eighty one questions wrong on the division quiz. But also, Teacher Bob marked Brother a zero]
Brother Bear: [sees the zero on his division test. There is a big, fat number "0" on the test. He also catches sight of the phrase on it; "VERY POOR! MUST BE SIGNED BY PARENT!"] A "ZERO" (0)!?
Teacher Bob: Didn't you do the math worksheets which I sent home with your sister (before the division test to begin with)?
Brother Bear: [tries to talk in between coughs] Well, I was pretty sick. It took a lot out of me. Including that flu bug.
Teacher Bob: Hmmm?
Brother Bear: But I think I should be okay now. And I cannot wait to get those work sheets done!
Teacher Bob: I am happy to hear that.
Brother Bear: Oh, well. I better go and catch the bus.
Teacher Bob: [about the division test which he got a zero for] Oh, one more thing. [tells Brother to have his parents sign the test, study all weekend, and he can retake the division quiz on Monday] Please have your parents sign that test and turn it in again tomorrow.Brother Bear: [looks at his test which was about division; just division facts from 0 through 9] Even the flu is worse than this!
[Mama and Papa are busy taking care of Sister and they do not notice Brother's division quiz where he got a great big zero on]Brother Bear: [thinks out loud that he doesn't like school, soccer, and division] PHOOEY ON SCHOOL! PHOOEY ON MATH (MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION)! PHOOEY ON EVERYTHING!
[Brother folds his division quiz into a paper airplane and sails it out so neither him nor his family can see it and it lands near an old log]Brother Bear: [to Gran after she rolled out his division quiz to flatten it and get rid of the wrinkles after he folded it into a paper airplane] It looks much better than it did. [indeed, it is way better, but Brother looks at the big, fat zero; meaning that he got zero out of eighty one questions correctly on the test] But it still has a great big "0" (zero) on it!Brother Bear: [shows the zero on his division test] I told you it was pretty bad.
Papa Bear: [as he's about to sign the division test] Pretty 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 school bus.
Brother Bear: That's for sure.Cousin Freddy: 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 Freddy: 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 and Brother start laughing]
=== 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 Freddy: 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" and therefore mistakes it for "cinnamon" even though he said "synonyms"] 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?
[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: New best friend!
Mama Bear: Pleased to meet you, Lizzie!
Lizzie: Hi, we're having recess!
Mama Bear: And what do you do at recess?
Sister Bear: Um, do you know?
Lizzie: 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: 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 Bear and 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 Bear and 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.
Gran: See you next week. Drive safely.
Mama Bear: Bye.
Papa Bear: Have fun.
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 MORE 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 any more television 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 wrestling show while in his workshop] HA! I didn't see that coming!
Mama Bear: [off-screen; as she and the cubs catches Papa from 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 the big cubs 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 while she and her own friends were playing] (Some big cubs) Too-Tall and his gang, they took my jump rope! I tried to get them to give 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 off to the park to find the bullies and dares Sister to try and stop him; the bullies Too-Tall, Smirk and Skuzz] JUST TRY AND STOP ME! (AND THEY BETTER GIVE IT BACK OR ELSE!)
[At this, Brother means that if Too-Tall, Smirk, and Skuzz do not give Sister back her jump rope, he is going to let them have it.]Skuzz: [as Brother tries to cross the log bridge] ONE FALSE MOVE AND YOU'RE GOING TO (FALL INTO THE WATER AND) HAVE A CHILLY SWIM![Brother, Too-Tall, Smirk, and Skuzz are trespassing in Farmer Ben's watermelon patch trying to steal one of the watermelons. Farmer Ben stands like a scarecrow. But from the moment Brother picks out the biggest watermelon and after he breaks off the stem from the watermelon vine and picks it up, Farmer Ben from his "scarecrow pose" sees Brother then opens his eyes.]
Farmer Ben: [runs up to Brother and catches him] GOTCHA! (YOU THEIVIN VARMIT!)
[Too-Tall, Smirk and Skuzz see Farmer Ben]
Too-Tall: RUN FOR IT!
[Too-Tall and his gang run away screaming. Farmer Ben does not know they have dee double dared Brother. But he is on to Brother. Just when Brother has one of the watermelons, Farmer Ben catches Brother]
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 call in and tell your parents about this one watermelon stealing mistake.
[It turns out that Brother Bear is lucky that Farmer Ben did not call in and tell his parents.]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". 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! [knowing about the consequences, then 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...! [he moves in closer to the gang] ...YOUR PARENTS ARE GONNA HEAR FROM ME! NOW GET ON HOME!
Smirk: [hears the warning from Farmer Ben] 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 have listened to the warning from Farmer Ben. Farmer Ben threatens Too Tall that Too Tall's parents are going to hear from him if he ever again catches him in his watermelon patch. They scream and run away after hearing his warning. When Farmer Ben had told them to "get on home", they quickly run off home before Farmer Ben calls in and tells their parents.]
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 you can come. what's one more?[That night, the sleepover was cancelled. The Bruins have called the other cubs's parents. Sister, the other girls, and Too-Tall and his gang are sent home. The angry and disappointed parents arrive to take the children home. Later, the scene cuts to Mama who is on to Sister while dragging her back to the treehouse into the night.]
Mama Bear: Sister, I am so angry and disappointed.
[The scene then cuts to the Bear family's 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 has to spend one day in her bedroom and one full week/month/year/decade/century/millennium in the treehouse. In other words: "She is grounded; one day in her bedroom and grounded indefinitely in the treehouse", by the grounded saying from Mama. She is grounded for one thousand years and can only leave the house.]
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, juice spills all over the carpet, furniture knocked this way and that. It was an absolute disgrace. Everything that I said about privilege and responsibility. In one ear and out the other.
Papa Bear: Sister does have to share the blame.Queenie: This was a good idea for us all to come over and help clean up, Sister.
Lizzie: Hey, I know. Everyone's doing such a good job. I think we should make 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: [voice over and first lines; just like from the book adaptation of said episode The Berenstain Bears and the Homework Hassle] "If you're a bear for TV, loud music, and fun, how are you gonna get your homework done?"Mama Bear: [picks up the letter from Brother's teacher before reading it] Hmm...?
[Mama finds an old but one hundred percent clear letter in Brother's backpack]
Letter from Teacher Bob: I regret to report that Brother Bear has fallen too far behind with his homework.
Please call me.
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. Not only she has found garbage including an old banana peel, a brown apple core, and a moldy piece of bread which Brother had for lunch at school. But also, there is an old and wrinkled but "loud and clear" letter from Brother's teacher about his homework. 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 looks like you and I better have a talk with our son!
[What Brother has with him is a bowl of popcorn on the TV, a TV which is showing his favorite TV show "The Bear Stooges", a boom box, and --for homework-- some school books, a pile of homework worksheets, and a pencil too.]Papa Bear: If you did a little bit of homework every day, it wouldn't pile up to a mountain of work! [shows Brother the rest of his untouched homework] Which is what you have here!
Brother Bear: Oh...!
Mama Bear: I'm afraid Papa's right. There are going to have to be some changes around here (until you're all caught up).
Brother Bear: Like what?
Papa Bear: [about what the changes are going to be on Brother until he catches up. It is just up to him and his homework until he is all caught up] Like no more music, no more TV, no more talking on the phone.
Sister Bear: What about video games, Papa? [smiles cleverly]
Papa Bear: And no more video games (and furthermore)! It's up to you and your homework until you get caught up!
Brother Bear: But you don't understand, that'll take forever!
Papa Bear: Then you better get started (with that homework)!
Brother Bear: [sadly jumps off the couch and heads to the back door] Oh...!
Papa Bear: Where are you going?
Brother Bear: [sadly; to Papa] I'm just going outside to see the sunlight and... smell the fresh air one last time.[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 back then] 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.
[As Gran and Gramps mention this, when Papa was younger, there was no television nor any electronic equipment back then whatsoever. None whatsoever, whether regarding to television and video games]
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. [By that, in the era of Papa's young age, there was radio. But radio at that time was like TV] 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 his favorite radio show, his father Gramps turns off the radio. Like how Papa took away Brother's TV, talking on the phone, music and video games until Brother catches up with his homework, in said flashback, Gramps takes away Papa's radio privilege until Papa catches up. 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 Papa 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. It was indeed forever for Papa since Gramps took away his radio and phone privileges permanently. In fact, Papa was grounded from it forever and could only leave the house to go to school. But even though he had the no radio and "no anything" forever or in other words "in the spite of being grounded from electronics forever", he did his homework and became a much better student. He was a much better student in every school grade despite being grounded from radio and talking on the phone forever. When Papa did his homework, he did not get to earn back his radio and phone privileges because he was grounded from it forever. But he became a much better student when he did his homework.]
Brother Bear: I understand, Gramps. [notices how his father back when he was in school became a much better student in the spite of being grounded from radio and phone privileges forever] But how am I ever going to be caught up?
[Brother at this point may also be grounded from TV, video games, talking on the phone, music, sports, and popcorn forever too. But in the spite of that, he may become a much better student like his father when he does his homework.]
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] ===
Teacher Bob: I believe that everyone has a special talent, but sometimes it can take a little help to find out what it is.Brother Bear: [to Too-Tall] You want to be in the talent show?
Cousin Fred: Does having the hairiest knuckles count as a talent?
Too-Tall: Very funny.Brother Bear: Hey! there's something outside!
Papa Bear: Huh?
Mama Bear: Huh?
[They all look outside the window]
Brother Bear: Really, something was there! I saw it! It was glowing.
Mama Bear: [laughs] My guess would be it was your glowing imagination.Sister Bear: This looks like a job for...
Brother Bear and Sister Bear: The Bear Detectives.Brother Bear: We knew you were special, Captain Salt.
Sister Bear: You just needed to know it too.
=== The Birthday Boy / The Green-Eyed Monster [1.10] ===
Lizzie: Maybe you can make a movie about Brother.
Sister Bear: What's so special about him? He's just a brother.Papa Bear: Basketballs weren't made to be gift wrapped.Mama Bear: Showing someone how you feel about them can be the greatest gift of all.
Papa Bear: And you don't even have to wrap it.Papa Bear: Your car is running, Mr. Bruin.
Mr. Bruin: Yes, I guess I should be happy it's running at all.
Mama Bear: No, Mr. Bruin, he means it's running away!Sister Bear: Is the green-eyed monster still knocking, Papa?
Papa Bear: Yep, but I won't let him in.[It is revealed that the green-eyed monster was exactly like Sister. But aside from Sister's normal outfit, she had green fur, green eyes, horns, and a reptilian monster tail]
Green-Eyed Monster: [to Sister] Don't you think it's not fair that Brother gets the pretty bike and you get an old bike?!Sister Bear: [riding on Brother's bicycle] I knew this bike wasn't too big for me!
=== The Baby Chipmunk / The Wishing Star [1.11] ===
Sister Bear: All Brown Eyes does is eat and sleep.
Mama Bear: Well, that's what babies do. When they aren't eating and sleeping, ...
Sister Bear: [giggles] They're sleeping and eating.
Mama Bear: Exactly.Mama Bear: They say the first star you see at night you can make a wish on. That's why it's called the wishing star.Papa Bear: It's really amazing how hard work and determination can magically give you what you deserve.
=== Get the Gimmies / Lost In A Cave [1.12] ===
[The cubs get the gimmies at the supermarket. Their first fuss/tantrum is over the rings and stickers]
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: Uh...Um...Well...
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 treats. Now come along. (Please put those toys back.)
Mama Bear: Why isn't that nice?
Papa Bear: Mm-hmm, It's a fine idea.
Brother Bear: What's a fine idea?
Mama Bear: The store has put these donation displays here to remind everyone to give to the different charities in our community.
Papa Bear: You two might think about donating some of the toys you've outgrown to the Sick Cubs Hospital.
Brother Bear: Hey, What's that?
Sister Bear: Oh.
[Brother takes Sister]:
Brother Bear: Look, New marshmallow chocolate bears!
Sister Bear: Can we have one, Please, please?
[Brother and Sister make a fuss over about the chocolate covered marshmallow bears. Their second fuss/tantrum is about candy. 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: [Sighs] Okay.
Sister Bear: [Sighs] Alright.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.
[The cubs's third "fuss" is about toys; glow in the dark frisbees and bouncy fruits. Mama then 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, (it's not Halloween), and it's not Christmas. And it is not "Give Your Cubs a Treat" day. So you go and put these toys back right now.
[Mama makes the cubs put the toys back to where they found them after telling them that they can put the toys back and forget about them. Because it's not their birthday, Halloween, nor Christmas]
Papa Bear: Give your cubs a treat day? (I have never heard of this holiday before.) When is that?
[Papa is aware that there is appearance of a birthday, Halloween, and Christmas, but not a "Give Your Cubs a Toy/Treat" day]
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.[The cubs's fourth and final fuss/tantrum is about toys; the rubber pussycat toys. The pussycats are revealed to be rubber toy cats that stick out their tongues when squeezed. Mama and Papa remind Brother and Sister for the fourth and final time about not buying toys nor treats]
Papa Bear: Now just hold on! We didn't come here (to the supermarket) to buy toys (nor treats)!
Mama Bear: [for the fourth and final time] Papa's right. [reminded the cubs four or more times about the "toys and treats" rule at the supermarket] Remember what I told you about buying toys and treats?
[Brother however thinks it's OK to ask for toys and treats just because they are finished with their groceries; though he does not know that Mama and Papa said "no asking for toys/treats at all at the supermarket"]
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: [roars in frustration and his voice is heard loud and clear so the cubs and Mama can hear it] OF ALL OF THE OUTRAGIOUS, EMBARRASSING, DISGRACEFUL, AND SHAMEFUL BEHAVIOR! THAT WAS THE WORST CASE OF THE GALLOPING GIMMIES I HAVE EVER SEEN!
Mama Bear: You're right, Papa. But perhaps, 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 at the supermarket] 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?
[When Papa is tired of roaring, he calls the cubs in to the living room for a talking to and family meeting.]
Papa Bear: Into the living room please. It's time for a family meeting.[Gramps and Gran have just arrived at the treehouse for a visit. Papa opens the door for his parents and welcomes them]
Gramps: Hi there!
Brother Bear: What did you bring me?
Sister Bear: Yeah, what did you bring us?
Papa Bear: [about the cubs's behavior around Gramps and Gran] I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU TWO! YOU EVEN DIDN'T SAY "HELLO"! [roars in his loudest Papa Bear voice after Brother and Sister got the gimmies on Gramps and Gran] THAT’S IT! UP TO YOUR ROOM! [The cubs go upstairs to their bedroom] AND THERE IS GOING TO BE NO TV OR TREATS FOR A WEEK! FOR A MONTH! FOR A YEAR! (A DECADE! A CENTURY! A MILLENNIUM!)
[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. The cubs can only leave the treehouse to go to school while grounded from TV and treats for a millennium. They are grounded for one thousand whole years. Papa is telling them that they are grounded from TV and treats for 1,000 years and are not allowed to leave the house except for school.]
Gramps: [thinks that Papa is having a bad day] You're having a bad day, son?
Papa Bear: [sighs; after he grounds Brother and Sister for one whole millennium from TV and treats] I'm sorry about the unpleasant welcome. Brother and Sister have the bad case of the galloping greedy gimmies. (But 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 television and treats until they learn to behave and stop with the galloping greedy gimmies.)
[Also, while grounded from TV and treats for one thousand years, the cubs also can only see their friends during school hours. That's the only time they can see their friends.][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, 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 snuck 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 (and that's why we are grounded from television and treats for a millennium and we can't leave the house except for school).
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: 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.Sister Bear: [to Gran and Gramps] Yes. And if you have brought us any toys or treats, you can just leave it in your car. Because we are not even thinking about it.
[Papa is pleased by Brother and Sister's greeting on Gran and Gramps and decides to lift the grounding. Now the cubs have back their TV and treats]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: Look! Wow! Real, live fossils.
Cousin Fred: Maybe a million years ago they were alive!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! [his 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: [as he, Sister and Brother prepare to head back to the treehouse from Dr. Grizzly's office] Well cubs, it's time for us to get our trains back on the track.
Sister Bear: You're right, Papa.
[Sister starts chugging and whistling like a train, recalling Dr. Grizzly's mention of it her nutrition lesson]
Sister Bear: [mimics a train chugging and whistling] Choo-choo! Chugga-chugga-chugga-chugga, choo-choo!
Papa Bear: [following Sister] Whoo-whoo! [looking back toward Brother; chuckles] Get on board, son. Whoo-whoo!
Brother Bear: I... I think I'll walk. I need the exercise.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 since a little is potentially okay 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: [aside from the junk food snacks that he and Sister can have occasionally, he mentions the healthy snacks which he and Sister have been having and sticking with almost every day; 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!
