Sister Bear is over at Lizzy Bruin's house watching Trouble at Big Bear High--a big-cubs' video that they probably shouldn't even be looking at--in which two teen bears are having an argument.

It was all about teenagers in high school. Sister didn't understand a lot of it. The teenagers in the video got

angry and upset with each other, and Sister didn't always understand why. They teased each other and made fun of each other’s clothes. They used a lot of words that Sister didn't understand. Whenever the teenagers got angry or upset, they said words that Sister had never heard before. She figured that these words were sort of like "Phooey!" or "Fudge!" but more grown-up. She whispered one or two to herself. They sounded pretty good. When the video was over, Sister and Lizzy played with
