Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Bear: And sometimes when you arrive in a new place that's unfamiliar, unknown from experience, you just need to slow things down, let your senses adapt, and just tune in to the environment.

    • Bear: (in the "tiger forest") This place is just eerily still, and it's like this whole forest is frozen in time. It's snow, and trees, you know, as far as you can see, and there's something quite claustrophobic about this forest.

    • Bear: (about to show how to get out of a frozen lake) And then the last thing I need to do before I go in is tie this safety line around myself. (looking directly at one of his crewmen) If you don't see me come out of that ice within 20 seconds, pull on this rope! I'm serious, you just pull on it, okay?

    • Bear: (after tobogganing down a steep hill) That was just a complete whiteout! It's like zero visibility, it's like being strapped to a human cannonball. But I'm down, out of the mountains, and I do not want to be man-hauling this sled any longer!
