The teddy bears have their picnic

Good night, Boog.

Who's there?

I'm warning you. I got ten claws

and I ain't afraid to use them.

- Hey, buddy. It's me, Elliot.

- What are you doing here?

You helped me,

I'm returning the favor.

I'm busting you out of here.

Let's go. Let's do this.

Come on. Let's book it before

the warden makes her rounds.

No, cornflake.

You've got it all twisted.

- This here is my home.

- Sweet.

Now haul your little butt

back out that window.

- What's this?

- Get off of that.

So soft. What is that?

What are you doing in there?

This place is big enough for two.

- What?

- Wow, look at that.

Does this look natural?

- Give me that.

- Oh, who's this little guy?

- Dinkleman.

- Dinkleman?

Is Dinkleman your doll?

I don't care about that old thing.

Oh, I get it. You're like a pet.

- I ain't nobody's pet.

- Right.

I do what I want, when I want,

and I come and go as I please.

Well, then let's go.


Why would I wanna go outside

when I got all I need in...

Whoa, what's that?

I call them Woo Hoos, like:

You want one?

I know where there's a bunch of them,

but you gotta go...


Inside. Outside.

- Inside. Outside.

- Stop it.

- Stupid nose.

- Inside. Outsi--

Okay, I got that Woo Hoo right out of

one of those container doohickeys.

You got that out the garbage?

I had that in my mouth

and everything.

Dude, you're freaking me out

with that nose thing.

- Whoa.

- What is it?

- It's a whole Woo Hoo village.

- Sweet.

It's locked. Maybe we should

come back tomorrow.


Elliot, look what you... You did.

You gonna get us in some trouble.

The Woo Hoo bar.

She's my lady. Smooth and creamy.

So bad, I shouldn't. Yet I will.

What is that?

Whoa, let me try.

Boog. Boog?

- Hello, idiot.
