    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Nitpick: Bear says numerous times that Joe and Sean will be surviving in the wild with him for 48 hours, but they spend less than 40. They only spend one night in the wild, so even if they were dropped in at 6AM the first day and were taken out at at 6PM the following day, that only makes 36 hours. They came and left both days in broad daylight, so they probably spent less than 36 hours there. Even adding an hour or so flight time both ways, they could not have possibly exceeded 40 hours.

      • Where To Find Food:
        Rabbits (heart can be eaten raw)

      • Where To Find Water:
        Melt snow in water bottles carried next to the body

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Joe: (making camp near a bear's game trail) If the Devil had a boot camp, this is what it would be like. This is evil. I haven't worked this hard since... ever!

      • Sean: (on Bear) I like to call him an 'Outdoors Wizard'. Um, he can see things that other people don't. Like, if I walk by a log, I'd just be like, 'That's a log', where he walks by a log and all of a sudden, 'That's a raft.' He just takes whatever and applies it to the situation he's in.

      • Bear: (looking down the deep crevasse they have to cross) Yeah, no, that's not great.
        Sean: I don't like to hear him say that.
        Joe: Not great.

      • Joe: I'm not looking forward to eating anything alive, or something I'd usually step on.
