      • As Dwayne enters the hallway where the Dominion students are guarding the bear head, in the background we hear a choir singing "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" (historically known as "The Negro National Anthem"), a song by poet James Weldon Johnson and his brother J. Rosamond Johnson often sung at ceremonial occasions with a large African-American attendance.

      • The choir performs "Hillman Ode," written by Jeffrey Mumford.

      • Denise's grandfather, Russell, is a recurring character on The Cosby Show.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Title: Sometimes You Get the Bear, Sometimes the Bear Gets You

        Sometimes You Get the Bear, Sometimes He Gets You is an old Aleut Indian saying.

      • : While Whitley is sleeping in her bed, she discovers the bear head under her covers and screams.
        This is a takeoff of the scene in "The Godfather" where the owner of a prized racing horse discovers the horse decapitated in his bed. Music from "The Godfather" even plays when Whitley discovers the bear head.
