This episode features the songs "Come on In" and "Home Away from Home." Tutter sings the song to call for Shadow and all the mice join in for the third and fourth lines. Additionally, Shadow performs "Shadow's Lullaby," which is Track 7 on the album "More Songs from Bear in the Big Blue House."
Luna: The world sleeps better when I'm up in the sky.
Luke: I miss my Mom and Dad.
Bear: Oh, it's okay, Luke. If you're ever at a sleepover, you should always remember that if you ever wanna go home, get the grownup there to call and your Mom and Dad will come get you.
Bear: Tutter? Um, what is it?
Tutter: Um, well, the thing is, I just realized --- I always sleep with Kitty and um, well, I'm just not sure what my friends will think when they see her.
Bear: Oh, well, Tutter? I wanna show you something. Come here. There you go, Tutter.
Tutter: Hey, look. Everybody's got a special something to sleep with, just like Kitty. Thank you, Bear.
Bear: Okay, everyone. Some nice baked Brie.
Mice Kids: Banzai!
Bear: You know, sometimes it's nice to do something at a sleepover that you would do at your house. It helps make you feel more at home in the new place. Okay everybody, baked Brie it is.
Ojo: Goodness, that's a lot of mice.
Tutter: It certainly is, Ojo.
Tutter: Oh, guys, guys. It's just Bear's baseball glove.
Luke: What does he use for a ball? The moon?
Tutter: Seriously, though. He does talk to the moon.
Bear: It's true. I do.
Tutter: Mmm-hmm, see.
Bear: Look, everyone, I know everything's kind of big, but I hope you'll think of this as your... well, your home away from home.
Tutter: Bear, it's okay that I invited the entire class, right? I didn't want anyone to feel left out.
Bear: Uh, sure, Tutter. I-it's fine.
Tutter: Grab your gear, everybody! We're moving out!
Mice Kids: All right! This is gonna be great!
Bear: Um... everybody? 12...
Tutter: Come on in!
Tutter: So, everybody excited about the big sleepover tonight?
Mice Kids: (various murmurs of assent)
Tutter: Huh? Huh, guys? Well, are ya'? Huh?
Bear: Tutter's bringing a couple of his friends over tonight for a sleepover. Hey, sleepover. Sleepover. A sleepover is when you stay at a friend's house overnight. Sleepovers are fun and really good practice for when you and your family go on a really long trip and stay at a hotel.
