Go Up and Down - When Papa takes the cubs to the Bruin's cottage, he's in such a hurry to get fishing, he dismisses the cubs' suggestion to think ahead and plan out everything they'll need to take with them. He rushes down the long windy staircase that leads to the water far below - only to find himself climbing back up the stairs again and again to get something else they need from the cottage. They've forgotten quite a few things - lifejackets, oars, sunhats, the fishing net...so Papa goes up and down and up and down, wearing himself out. It's only when the cubs take it upon themselves to think ahead, make a list and take everything they need with them that Papa can finally sit back and enjoy a day of fishing. Big Bear, Small Bear - When he's given his very own key to the tree house, Brother feels so "all grown up" that he turns his back on frivolous "cub games" in favour of doing "important grown up jobs" with Papa. But when Papa can't find a way to help Ms. Grizzle gain access to her accidentally locked house, it's Brother who shinnies up a nearby tree to an open window like only a cub can. Realizing that cubs can do important jobs too, like taking care of their pets, helping their family and siblings, Brother decides not to be in such a rush to be "all grown up" and rejoins the cub fun with his friends.
