When Tuke makes up with Rutt after their falling out, Rutt suggests "Hey, you know what this calls for? A pile of delicious barley and amber wheat on a cool bed of malted hops, eh." As a celebration meal, to which Tuke replies "I like it.". The list is rough ingredients for beer. The characters are voiced by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas which play Bob and Doug McKenzie in 'Strange Brew' and the characters are self profest beer enthusiast.

Two characters in Brother Bear (Tuke and Rutt) play "I Spy" while traveling on a mammoth. They both choose obvious items (in this case, a tree) and keep choosing it even when the other character knows what they chose. This continues a similar theme in many Disney branded movies (Finding Nemo, Dinosaur...) where characters do the same thing.

Quotes
Kenai: You want to know what I did this year? I went on the longest, hardest, most exhausting journey I have ever been on, with the biggest pain in the neck I have ever met. Well, what do you expect from a little brother?

Kenai: Yeah, I'll probably get, like, a sabretooth tiger for bravery, or strength, or greatness, you know, something that fits me...
