Go To

The bears become police officers at a movie theater sneaking up just like ninjas to shush everyone in the movie theater who ruin the movie for everybody with their rude manners.


  • An Aesop: You can't make everyone obey the rules.
    • At the same time, it's important to stay quiet during movies so everyone can enjoy them.
  • Audience Surrogate: In-Universe, Laura the girl from the vampire film, represents all the women moviegoers that gush over Jared.
  • Beauty Equals Goodness: A girl argues with Panda over Jared, stating that, "Look at these abs! Are these the abs of a villain?"
  • Bottle Episode: The majority of the episode takes place in a movie theater.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: The climax deals with an entire theater filled with these.
  • Call-Back:
    • The yellow backpack from "Our Stuff" contained the dance suits they used for the whole episode.
    • Ice Bear being the most agile ninja of the group calls back to his martial arts skills from "Chloe".

    • The library from "Our Stuff" is where the bears retire to read books quietly and people shush those who make noise.
    • Many university students from "Chloe" reappear watching the vampire film while arguing with Panda.
    • The old lady who called the cops on them in "Our Stuff" makes noise by scratching and is shushed by Grizz.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Grizz eventually starts shushing and even evicting people for minor disturbances like sneezing.
  • Funny Background Event: The lobby posters, which include a romantic movie entitled "All The Feels", a blaxplotation movie called "Here Comes the Popo", and a parody of The Fast and the Furious called "Really Really Fast".

  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Panda shushing those who favor Jared and arguing that Christopher is better started a fuss until everyone in the room was arguing and yelling instead of quietly watching the movie.
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently, the bears are taking interpretive dance classes. (Likely courtesy of Ice Bear.)
  • Romantic Runner-Up: In the vampire film, Christopher is the third wheel.
  • Rousing Speech: Grizz stands up in front of an audience of rowdy children and gives a touching and heartfelt speech about the communal experience of going to the movies. He manages to calm down the crowd, but only because the speech put all the kids to sleep.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Christopher is a pudgy vampire who is dorky and sensitive while Jared is a manly vampire who has a fit body and suave personality. (Guess who Panda votes for.)
  • Ship-to-Ship Combat: Caused in-universe by Panda. Unfortunately for Panda he's the sole voice of camp Christopher, leading everyone else in the cinema to yell at him.
  • Shout-Out:
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: Instead of simply shushing the man or his phone, Ice Bear instead breaks the ringing phone to pieces and beats it into the ground until all of the moviegoers run away.
  • Vampires Are Sex Gods: All of the girls in the vampire theater room love Jared for his body and attractive looks.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: The movie theater manager reprimands the bears for "shushing inappropriately".
