"Not if we buy the bear a ticket. How about it? Bear-told Brecht"?
The man is talking about taking a bear to the theatre, and the bear is just beside him.

@yellhue,
It's a joke. Bertolt Brecht was a famous German playwright.

Bear-told is a phonetic representation of how the German pronunciation of Berthold sounds to an English speaker.
