Open Season is a 2006 American computer-animated comedy-drama film about Boog, a domesticated 900lb. Grizzly bear, finds himself stranded in the woods 3 days before Open Season. Forced to rely on Elliot, a fast-talking mule deer, the two form an unlikely friendship and must quickly rally other forest animals if they are to form a rag-tag army against the hunters.

  • [Singing to the tune of "The Teddy Bear's Picnic"] Once there was a magical elf who lived in a rainbow tree/He lived downstairs from a flatulent dwarf who was constantly having to pee/One day, the elf could take no more/So he went and banged on the rude dwarf's door/And what do you know, they suddenly both were married.
  • [About the coffee he found in a dumpster] Yuck. Yuck! It's terrible and wonderful at the same time! It's like freedom in a cup!
  • [Wearing a gumball dispenser on his head] I come in peace.
  • [Bounces on a bed] So soft. What is that? [Bounces off]


  • [Eating animal crackers while in the backseat of Gordy's truck and after singing his own version of "Teddy Bear's Picnic"] If you go out into the woods today there's gonna... be some fries. Yeah. And the giraffes taste almost exactly like the elephants. But that's messed up.
  • [Stumbles into his garage and sees Dinkleman staring from his bed] What are you lookin' at? I told you not to wait up! [does a tired growl]
  • The Woo-Hoo bar. She's my lady. Smooth and creamy. So bad I shouldn't. Yet I will.
  • When I'm a bear rug, they can walk all over me. Until then, I ain't goin' down without a fight!


McSquizzy: [When Boog goes over to his tree and hits him with an acorn] Oy! You late for Sunday school? This is McSquizzy's turf! Nobody messes with McSquizzy! 'Cause that's me!
Boog: What?
McSquizzy: Touch a needle on this tree, and I'll give ya such a doin'!
Boog: You and what army?
[The Furry Tail Clan appear]
Furry Tail Clan: Oy!
Boog: Oh, that army.

Gordy: You know, the longer you wait, the harder it's gonna be for him to adapt.
Beth: Oh, I'm sure he'll... At least I think he'll--
Gordy: And the harder it's gonna be for you to let him go.

Elliot: [Standing with his butt in the air, his antler stuck to the ground] Hey, Boog! Look, no hands! Though I think I'm getting a sunburn.
Boog: All right, where's home?
Elliot: Or maybe it's a moonburn. Check it out.
[Boog slaps Elliot on the butt]
Elliot: Ow!

Elliot: Boogster, what's the delio?
Maria: Watch your mouth, or you gonna get yourself in a LOT of trouble, girlfriend.
Rosie: You're just jealous 'cause you ain't got a MAN!
Boog: I don't know, some kind of chick fight. Elliot, wha' I do?
Elliot: Well, that's easy, you gonna mark your territory. Show them who's boss!
Boog: (nods) All right, ladies, I'm laying down the law! (Maria and Rosie stare)
Elliot: Well, unless, of course, they're skunks.
Boog: (They bellow gas at him and runs to the river and washs him with some water, then drys himself with some rabbits) The woods is no place for a bear!

Elliot: I'm a little light-headed.
[His remaining antler cracks off]

[Boog is fighting with Elliot behind the curtains during his show; Boog's holding Elliot by his antler up to the wall]
Boog: You got me in enough trouble!
Elliot: Hey. I, you saved my life. That means that you're responsible for me.
Boog: What? Stop messing up my life!
Elliot: You needed to get out, you should thank me. [Crosses arms]
Boog: Thank you?!
Elliot: [Now happy and smiling] You're welcome, buddy!
Boog: [Drops Elliot] Grrr! Stop callin' me that! Now get out!

Reilly: [About Boog] Hey, guys. Check it out. The largest carinvore in North America. The grizzly bear.
Elliot: And he's a good dancer. We're gonna be in a show.

Boog: Boog is sorry. [Begins to cry]
Gordy: Beth, you're not his mother.
Beth: I'm not mothering him.

[Boog taps on his garage window and waves at Beth]

Beth: Excuse me. Go to bed, Boog!

[Boog then vomits on the window]

Shaw: [Referring to Mr. Weenie] Don't trust him. Pets are double agents. The moment you turn your back, he'll shiv ya.
Bobbie: Oh, no, he can't. We had him fixed.

McSquizzy: Get off my trees, ya buck-toothed sporran!

Boog: [After waking up in the forest face-to-face with a flower] Ooooohhh... pretty.

Elliot: You know, I've been thinkin', we should have a secret handshake, and, like, nicknames and stuff. Like, I can call you "Boogster," and you can call me "The Incredible Mr. E." You like that? I just made it up. You know, this is gonna be awesome. It's just you and me. Hey, who's the lady in the shorts?

Bobbie: Isn't it peaceful out here, Bob? You're right, Bob. Let's not spoil the beauty of this moment... with idle chatter. Some people can just jibber-jabber till the cows come home. What does that mean, Bob? "Till the cows come home." Where have the cows been?

McSquizzy: Mess not with the Furry Tail Clan, protectors of the weak, crusaders of the righteous, guardians of the pine!

Reilly: Yo, O'Toole!
O'Toole: Yeah, boss?
Reilly: I want you to cantilever that cedar on a bias by the north side.
O'Toole: Huh?
Reilly: Put a twig in the hole.
O'Toole: Oh.
Reilly: Rookie.

Elliot: Ian's right, I'm a loser.
Boog: No, you're not a loser.
Elliot: Yes, I am!
Boog: No, you're not!
Elliot: Yes!
Boog: No!
Elliot: Trust me, you know the day I met you, Ian kicked me out of the herd, I lost my antler, I got run over, and tied to the hood of a truck. What do you call that?
Boog: Ahhh... a loser! But check this out. Behold, the Mighty Grizzly! I look like a bear, I talk like a bear. But I can't fish, I can't climb a tree, I can't even go in the woods!
Elliot: That's nothin'! Half doe, half buck! I'm a duck!
Boog: I ride a unicycle for crackers.
Elliot: I have a glass eye.
Boog: I can't snap.
Elliot: I thought log was a color.
Boog: I can't see my feet!
Elliot: I killed a man with this thumb!
[both laugh]

Elliot: [Stuck in the ground] Okay, righty tighty.
[He turns right]
Elliot: Leeefffttty loosey.
[He turns left]

[Explaining the woods to Boog]
Elliot: Okay, Forest 101: These tall stick things are called trees. The big rocks are called mountains and the little rocks are their babies.

Shaw: If I don't stop 'em, IT'LL BE A TOTAL REVERSAL... of the "natural order". They laugh at old Shaw, but you'll see, the truth...will be revealed.

[Repeated line]
Buddy: Buddy!

Shaw: How far does this conspiracy go?! How many animals are in on it?! God bless America! I hope the bald eagle hasn't turned!

Ian: "Boog?" What's that short for? "Booger?"
[Ian and the herd laugh]

Beaver #1: Hey, what you got?
Beaver #2: Wood. What you got?
Beaver #1: Wood. You want to trade?

McSquizzy: Is this a private fight or can anybody join? 'Cause McSquizzy wants in!
[The Furry Tail Clan appear]
The Furry Tail Clan: Oy!
Boog: Good, 'cause we're gonna need your nuts!
Elliot: And your acorns too!

McSquizzy: Aww! Mr. Happy didn't go off!

Boog: [finding out that he is in the forest] Aah!

[Boog's scream echoes throughout the woods]

Boog: Where's home? It's gone! Someone stole it!
[Elliot comes out of the bag]
Elliot: Hey. Would you keep it down? I'm tryin' to sleep here. [yawns in Boog's face; Boog shakes angrily]
Boog: You!
[Boog takes the bag off of him and walks over to a cliff]
Elliot: No I didn't do it!
Boog: [holding Elliot over the cliff] Take a good look around, Elliot. What's missing?
Elliot: Wait, don't tell me. I...
Boog: Timberline is missing!
Elliot: Oh, I was just going to say that.
Boog: My garage is missing. My breakfast, lunch and dinner are missing! My life is missing, and it's all... your... fault!
Elliot: What are you gonna do? [Boog lets go of Elliot's antler; he falls, but Boog quickly grabs Elliot] AAAAH! [Boog holds Elliot up; Elliot realizes he wasn't falling] Heheh! You're funny! I thought, "Maybe," but then I was like, "Uh-huh!", and then...
[Boog throws Elliot over his shoulder]

Shaw: [after seeing Elliot walking around on two legs and drinking some coffee he found in a nearby dumpster] You! It walks... like a man!

Elliot: [after seeing Boog's bowl with his name on it] Oh! I get it! You're like a pet! [chuckles]
Boog: I ain't nobody's pet!
Elliot: [holding Boog's bowl] Right.

Ian: Herd! Circle formation!
[The herd instead make an oval shape]
Ian: You pinheads, that's on oval! More... circle-y!
[The herd make a circle shape]

Boog: [as Gordy is about to arrest him] Behold... the Mighty... Grizzly. Good night.
[Boog passes out]

Boog: [helium voice] Hello, Idiot.
Elliot: [helium voice] That's Elliot.
[both laugh]

[as the wilds encounter Mr. Weenie]
Buddy: It's a pet!
Reilly: He's gonna blow our cover!

[Weenie stops growling as Elliot gives him a smile; Mr. Weenie sighs]

Mr. Weenie: I've been living a lie! [rips off his shirt] Please... take me vith you!
Elliot: Wow.

Boog: All right, fish. Give it up for Boog!

Shaw: [enters his cabin and looks in his fridge] Somebody's been eatin' my candy! [sees his overturned chair] Somebody's been sitting in my chair! [goes to his toilet] Somebody forgot to flush!

Elliot: [when Boog asks where the toilets are in the forest] Don't look now, but I see a little bush with your name written all over it.
Boog: A bush? Are you serious?
Elliot: Go on. It's just like riding a bicycle, only... you're crapping on it.
[Boog reluctantly goes over to the bush]
Elliot: Show us your "grrr" face, nature boy!

Beth: You're in big trouble, mister!
Boog: Sheesh!
[Boog passes out]
Boog: Ow!

[Beth takes something off of Boog and gasps]

Beth: You know what sugar does to you, Boog! [closes Gordy's truck's back door] Straight to bed! Now!
[Boog gets up and runs over to his garage]

Elliot: I call them Woo-Hoos. Like in, "Woo-hoo!"

Gordy: Shaw, hunting season doesn't start for 3 days. What are you doing with that buck on your hood?
Shaw: What? It ain't my fault! He ran right in front of my truck!
Gordy: Where? On interstate?
[the scene cuts to a flashback where Shaw drives right in front of the deer who is eating grass and runs him over; the scene then cuts back to the present day]
Shaw: [chuckles] Sorta.

Beth: [after seeing that Shaw has killed Elliot] Shaw! That guy really chaps my khakis. You wait here, Boog.
[Beth goes off to confront Shaw while Boog waits in the truck]

McSquizzy: That was just a warning, all right? Try it again, I'll be kicking your furry brown bahookie! [slaps his butt]

[after Boog accidently destroys the beaver dam]
Reilly: [to Boog] You! You did this!
[all the forest animals angrily mutters to Boog]
Boog: What? What did I do?
Reilly: You dragged us down to the hunting grounds!
Maria: Yeah! Where are we gonna hide?!
Serge: We're sitting ducks out here!
Buddy: And it's open season!
Elliot: [wades through the crowd quieting them] All right, all right! That's enough! Guys, it's not his fault!
Boog: Oh, you're right, Elliot. It's your fault!
Elliot: My fault?
Boog: Yeah! If it weren't for you, I'd be home right now! None of this would've ever happened! You said you knew the way back, but you lied!
Elliot: [upset] I... no. Okay. Okay, maybe... I thought if you hung out with me, then maybe you would like me.
Boog: Oh, man! I trusted you, Elliot!
Elliot: I'm sorry, Boog. We're still partners, right?
Boog: You know, Elliot, I'm better off alone. [Elliot slumps]
Buddy: What about us?
Crowd: Yeah. Yeah, what about us?
Boog: "Us?" There's no us! You're not my problem. (to Elliot) And you? We're done. (Boog turns his back on Elliot and begins to leave)
Elliot: But... Boog, wait!
Boog: Done!

Bobbie: All right, Mr. Weenie, Mama's gonna go take a dip.
Mr. Weenie: Good. Mama's getting kind of gamey.

About Open SeasonEdit

  • I gave a two-hour lecture and I showed all these old Disney films and stylized Warner Bros. cartoons and showed how the characters could squash and stretch out of proportion. I went frame by frame and they just kind of looked at me, and I thought, ‘I’m such an idiot. They don’t understand me.’ But the next day the phone was ringing off the hook.
