A Bear Claw is a sweet pastry not unlike a doughnut but larger and irregularly shaped resembling a bears paw. Archer’s friends grab one while waiting for him to show up at the hospital for his cancer surgery.
Pam Poovey is a huge fan of the bear claw as she can be seen with one or two in:
- In "Stage Two," she is seen eating two double fist at the hospital.
- In "El Secuestro," she has a bear claw in one hand and a 40 oz beverage in the other on her walk to work with Cheryl Tunt.
- In "White Nights," eating one while Malory Archer chastises her for gossiping about her affair with Nikolai Jakov.
- In "Skin Game," she is eats one during Bear Claw Monday.
Behind the ScenesEdit
When Amber Nash first recorded the dialogue of Pam eating bear claws, the recording staff tricked her into eating a plate full of biscuits. She recorded many lines of dialogue and only 10-15 seconds were used.
This behind the scenes feature was released many weeks prior to the actual episode airing. Since this clip has aired, the phrase "bear claw rrarhr" has been repeated many times. It appears in the show a few times, and in promotional materials for the show (such as Neal Holman's Twitter).
