The Last Airbender season 2

The following is a list of quotes from the second season Avatar: The Last Airbender.


The Avatar StateEdit

Master Pakku: (holding up an amulet) Katara, I want you to have this. This amulet contains water from the Spirit Oasis. The water has unique properties. Don't lose it.
Katara: (hugs him) Thank you, Master Pakku.
Master Pakku: Aang. (gives Aang some scrolls) These scrolls will help you master waterbending. But remember, they're no substitute for a real master. (glances at Katara)
(Aang bows and steps away)
Master Pakku: Sokka...
(Sokka steps forward eagerly)
Master Pakku: (pats Sokka on the shoulder dismissively) Take care, son.
(Sokka frowns and steps back)

Azula: Do the tides command this ship?
Fire Navy Ship Captain: I'm afraid I don't understand.
Azula: You said the tides would not allow us to bring the ship in. Do the tides command this ship?
Fire Navy Ship Captain: No, Princess.
Azula: And if I were to have you thrown overboard, would the tides think twice about smashing you against the rocky shore?
Fire Navy Ship Captain: No, Princess.
Azula: Well then, maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over.

Katara: Can we talk about something?
Aang: Sure.
Katara: Do you remember when we were at the Air Temple and you found Monk Gyatso's skeleton? It must have been so horrible and traumatic for you. I saw you get so upset that you weren't even you anymore. I'm not saying the Avatar State doesn't have incredible- and helpful- power, but, you have to understand, for the people who love you, watching you be in that much rage and pain is really scary.
Aang: I'm really glad you told me that. But I still need to do this.
Katara: I don't understand.
Aang: No, you don't. Every day, more and more people die. I'm already a hundred years late. Defeating the Fire-lord is the only way to stop this war! I have to try it.
Katara: I can't watch you do this to yourself. I'm not coming tomorrow. Good night.

[General Fong and his men are attacking Aang in attempt to force him into the Avatar State. Katara attacks some of the Earthbenders with her waterbending]

Fong: (to Aang) Maybe you can avoid me... but she can't.

[Katara launches a water attack at Fong, but he deflects it with earth and causes her to sink into the ground up to her kees]

Katara: Aah! I can't move!
Aang: (angry and frightened) Don't hurt her!

[He airbends at Fong, who deflects it]

Sokka: Katara, no!

[He tries to help her, but Fong uses earthbending to knock him off his ostrich-horse]

Aang: (grabs Fong's arm) Stop this! You have to let her go!
Fong: You could save her if you were in the Avatar State!
Aang: (tearfully) I'm trying! I'm trying!
Katara: Aang, I'm sinking!

[She sinks up to her waist]

Fong: I don't see any glowing! (he sinks Katara up to her neck)
Katara: Please!
Aang: You don't have to do this!
Fong: Apparently... I do.

[He closes his fist, and Katara is buried completely; Aang leaps to pull her out, but is too late. He turns towards Fong, his face full of rage and his tattoos and eyes glowing, indicating that he has entered the Avatar State]

Fong: It worked! It worked!

[His expression turns to fear as a massive cyclone of wind begins to form around Aang]

[As visions of Aang's past lives are shown]

Avatar Roku: It's time you learned. The Avatar State is a defense mechanism, designed to empower you with the skills and knowledge of all the past Avatars. The glow is the combination of all your past lives, focusing their energy through your body. In the Avatar State, you are at your most powerful... but you are also at your most vulnerable.
Aang: What do you mean?
Roku: If you are killed in the Avatar State, the reincarnation cycle will be broken. And the Avatar... will cease to exist.

The Cave of Two LoversEdit

Katara: You make a fine octopus, Pupil Aang.

Zuko: I didn't find anything to eat. I can't live like this. I wasn't meant to be a fugitive. This is impossible! Uncle... what are you doing?
Iroh: You're looking at the rare white dragon bush. Its leaves make a tea so delicious it's heartbreaking! That, or it's the white jade bush, which is poisonous.
Zuko: We need food, not tea. I'm going fishing. [walks off]
Iroh: Hmm delectable tea? Or deadly poison?

Sokka: Look, I hate to be the wet blanket here, but since Katara's busy, I guess it's up to me.

Katara: Is this real or a legend?
Chong: Oh, it's a real legend.

Chong: (singing) Two lovers, forbidden from one another, war divides their people, and the mountains divide them apart. Built a path to be together - (talking) Yeah, forget the next couple of lines but then it goes - (singing again, rocker style) SECRET TUNNEL! SECRET TUNNEL! Through the mountain! SECRET, SECRET, SECRET, SECRET TUNNEL! Yeah!
[everyone claps]

Iroh: Zuko, remember that plant that I thought might be tea?
Zuko: You didn't!
Iroh: I did. [Iroh turns around to reveal his red, swollen face which he is scratching] And it wasn't.
Zuko: Yah!
Iroh: When the rash spreads to my throat, I will stop breathing. But look what I found! These are bacui berries, known to cure the poison of the white jade plant. That, or macahoni berries that cause blindness.
Zuko: We're not taking any more chances with these plants! We need to get help.
Iroh: But where are we going to go? We're enemies of the Earth Kingdom, and fugitives from the Fire Nation.
Zuko: If the Earth Kingdom discovers us, they'll have us killed.
Iroh: But if the Fire Nation discovers us, we'll be turned over to Azula.
[Both look at one another and nod]
Zuko: Earth Kingdom it is.

Chong: We don't need a map. ...We just need love.

(after a cave-in separates Aang and Katara from the rest of the group, Sokka digs furiously at the rubble for a moment before giving up)
Chong: Yeah, it's no use. We're separated. (holds up guitar) But at least you have us!
(Sokka wails in anguish and begins digging twice as hard)

Aang: It must be the two lovers from the legend. That's who's buried here.
Katara: [gesturing to the carvings on the platform the caskets are on] These pictures tell their story.
Katara voiceover: They met on top the mountain that divided their two villages. The villages were enemies, so they could not be together. But their love was strong, and they found a way. The two lovers leaned earthbending from the badgermoles; they became the first earthbenders. They built elaborate tunnels so that they could meet secretly. Anyone that tried to follow them would be lost forever in the labyrinth. But one day, the man didn't come. He died in the war between their two villages. Devastated, the woman unleashed a terrible display of her earthbending power, she could've destroyed them all. But, instead, she declared the war over. Both villages helped her build the new city where they would live together in peace. The woman's name was Oma and the man's name was Shu. The great city was named Omashu as a monument to their love.

[Katara and Aang turn around to find a giant carving on the wall of the two lovers kissing. Katara reads the inscription.]

Katara: Love is brightest... in the dark.

Katara: I have a crazy idea...
Aang: What?
Katara: Never mind. It's too crazy.
Aang: Katara, what is it?
Katara: (looking away) I was thinking... the curse says we'll be trapped in here forever unless we trust in love.
Aang: Right.
Katara: And here it says "love is brightest in the dark" and...has a picture of them kissing...
Aang: (clueless) Where are you going with this?
Katara: Well...what if we kissed?
Aang: (shocked) Us kissing?!
Katara: See? It was a crazy idea.
Aang: Us...(dreamily) kissing.
Katara: (laughing) Us, kissing. What was I thinking? Can you imagine that?
Aang: Yeah.(laughs) I definitely wouldn't want to kiss you.
Katara: (slightly hurt) Well, I didn't realize it was such a horrible option! Sorry I suggested it!
Aang: No, I mean, if it was a choice between kissing you and dying-
Katara: (turning away from him)Ugh!
Aang: What?! I'm saying I'd rather kiss you than die! That's a compliment!
Katara: Well, I'm not sure which I'd rather do! (walks away)
Aang: (sadly) What is wrong with me?

Chong: Hey, I remember that line of the song! (Gets his banjo and stands in the front of the cave and sings) AND DIE!

(Sokka and Chong's group have been reunited with Aang and Katara outside the cave)
Katara: (to Sokka) Sokka, why is your forehead all red?
Chong: (to Katara and Sokka) Nobody react to what I'm about to tell you... (points to Aang in the background) I think that kid might be the Avatar!
Sokka: (slaps forehead, red mark gets bigger)

Return to OmashuEdit

Ty Lee: But I'm happy here, my aura has never been pinker!
Azula: (cocking an eyebrow) I'll take your word for it.

Mai: I thought you ran off and joined the circus? You said it was your calling.
Ty Lee: Well, Azula called a little louder.

[The little baby begins teething on Sokka's boomerang. Sokka takes it away.]
Sokka: No! Bad Fire Nation baby!
[The baby starts crying. Katara his Sokka in the head.]
Sokka: Oh, alright.
[Sokka gives his boomerang back to the baby to teeth on it.]

Mai: (to Azula; deadpan] Please tell me you're here to kill me.

Mai: [About Omashu.] There really is no fathoming the depths of my hatred for this place.

Azula: The Avatar? My lucky day!

Mai: So we're tracking your brother and uncle, huh?
Ty Lee: It'll be interesting seeing Zuko again, won't it Mai?

[Mai glances away and smiles]

Azula: It's not just Zuko and Iroh anymore. We have a third target now.

The SwampEdit

Zuko: We are not entertainers.
Iroh: Not professional anyway.
(Iroh gets up and starts singing as a man slashes at the ground near his feet, forcing him to dance.)
Iroh: (singing)
It's a long, long way to Ba-Sing-Se
But the girls in the city
They look so pretty!
They kiss so sweet
That you really got to meet
The girls from Ba-Sing-Se!

Katara: Sokka, you've got an elbow leech!
Sokka: Where?! Where?!
Katara: Where do you think?
[He rips the leech off his elbow.]

Hugh: [abotu the great banyan tree] One big living organism, just like the entire world.
Aang: I get how the tree is one big thing, but the whole world?
Huu: Sure. You think you're any different from me, or your friends, or this tree? If you listen hard enough, you can hear every living thing breathing together. You can feel everything growing. We're all living together, even if most folks don't act like it. We all have the same roots, and we are all branches of the same tree.
Katara: But what did our visions mean?
Huu: In the swamp, we see visions of people we've lost, people we loved, folks we think are gone. But the swamp tells us they're not. We're still connected to 'em. Time is an illusion, and so is death.

Due: I bet he tastes a lot like possum chicken.
Tho: You think everything tastes like possum chicken.

Avatar DayEdit

Zuko: There is no honor for me without the Avatar.
Iroh: Zuko, even if you did capture the Avatar, I'm not so sure it would solve our problems. Not now.
Zuko: Then there is no hope at all.
Iroh: No, Zuko! You must never give into despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road, and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.

Sokka: (finding his stolen boomerang) Boomerang! You do always come back!

Aang: I said I would face justice, so I will. (spins Wheel of Punishment)
Spectator 1: (rooting) Come on, torture machine!
Old Man: Eaten by bears!
Spectator 2: Razor pit!
Katara: (worried) Community service! Please land on community service.

Mayor Tong: (cowers) You! Avatar! Do something!
Aang: Gee, I'd love to help, but I'm supposed to be boiled in oil.

Aang: Ugh. So, what just happened?
Katara: Well uh, you kind of... confessed. Sorry.

Aang: What is this?
Mayor Tong: Our new festival food. Unfried dough. May we eat and remember how on this day, the Avatar was NOT boiled in oil!
Katara: (picks up uncooked dough) Happy Avatar Day.

[Katara and Aang eat the dough]

Sokka: This is, by far, the worst town we have ever been to.

The Blind BanditEdit

Katara: (Sigh) This is just going to be a bunch of guys chucking rocks at each other, isn't it?
Sokka: That's what I paid for.

The Boulder: The Boulder feels conflicted about fighting a young blind girl.
Toph: Sounds to me like you're scared, Boulder!
The Boulder: ...The Boulder's over his conflicted feelings, and now he's ready to bury you in a rockalanche!
Toph: Whenever you're ready, the Pebble! (laughs evil-like)

Toph: (Aang has just entered the ring) Do people really want to see two little girls fighting out here?
Aang: (to Toph) I don't really want to fight you. I want to talk to you.
Katara: Don't boo at him! [hits Sokka on the arm]

Toph: Somebody's a little light on his feet. What's your fighting name, the Fancy Dancer? (Aang smiles as he dodges from Toph's earthbending attack) Where'd you go?
Aang: Please, wait!
Toph: There you are! (Throws a big rock on Aang, who intercepts it with an airbending attack on Toph, who was knocked out by her old rock bending and eliminated as well)

The Boulder: Listen up, Hippo! You may be big, but you ain't bad! The Boulder's gonna win this, in a landslide!

Sokka: You know, now I'm really glad I bought this bag. It matches the belt perfectly!
Katara: (sarcastically) That is a BIG relief!

Toph: What're you doing here, Twinkle Toes?
Aang: How'd you know it was me?
Sokka: Don't answer to Twinkle Toes, it's not manly!
Katara: You're the one whose bag matches his belt!

Toph: Let him go. I beat you all before, I'll do it again!
The Boulder: The Boulder takes issue with that comment!

Toph: Um, I'll take the belt back. [Sokka undoes it then throws it to Toph, but it hits her on the head and knocks her down] Oww!
Sokka: Sorry.

Zuko AloneEdit

Zuko: (Gives dagger to Lee) Read the inscription.
Lee: Made in Earth Kingdom...
Zuko: The other one.
Lee: Never give up without a fight.

Soldier 1: Hey! Did you throw that egg?
Zuko: No.
Soldier 1: Did you see who did it?
Zuko: No.
Soldier 1: That egg had to've come from somewhere.
Zuko: Maybe a chicken flew over.

[After Azula tricked Zuko into knocking Mai, and himself, into a fountain to put out the flaming apple on Mai's head]
Ursa: I was just coming to get you. Uncle Iroh sent us a letter from the war front. ...You're soaking wet.
Zuko: Girls are crazy!

Male Villager: (While Zuko is fighting) Give him a left! A left!
Female Villager: It's not a fist fight.
Male Villager: He's got a left sword, don't he?

Ursa: [in reference to Azula] What is wrong with that child?!

Ozai: Father, you must have realized as I have that with Lu Ten gone, Iroh's bloodline has ended. After his son's death, my brother abandoned the siege at Ba Sing Se, and who knows when he'll return home. But I am here, Father, and my children are alive.
Azulon: Say what it is you want!
Ozai: Father, revoke Iroh's birthright. I am your humble servant, here to serve you and our nation. Use me.
Azulon: You dare suggest I betray Iroh, my first born, directly after the demise of his only beloved son?! I think that Iroh has suffered enough. But you, your punishment has scarcely begun!

Zuko: Azula always lies, Azula always lies.

Defeated Earthbender: Who... Who are you?
Zuko: My name is Zuko, son of Ursa and Fire Lord Ozai, Prince of the Fire Nation, and heir to the throne.

The ChaseEdit

Toph: Who's Zuko?
Sokka: Oh, just some angry freak with a ponytail who's tracked us all over the world.
Katara: What's wrong with ponytails, Ponytail?
Sokka: This (points to ponytail) is a warrior's wolf-tail.
Katara: Well it certainly tells the other warriors that you're fun and perky.

Toph: We can take 'em. Three on three.
Sokka: Actually Toph, there's four of us.
Toph: Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't count you; you know, no bending and all.
Sokka: [furious] I CAN STILL FIGHT!
Toph: Okay. Three, on three plus Sokka.
Sokka: (growls furiously)

Katara: Ever since you joined us, you've been nothing but selfish and unhelpful!
Toph: What?! Look here, sugar queen! I gave up everything I had so that I could teach Aang earthbending, so don’t you talk to me about being selfish!
Katara: "Sugar queen?!" (Toph closes off her rock tent by bringing a slab of earth up to cover the opening to Katara.) D-Did you just slam the door in my face?! How can you be so infuriating...!!!
[Katara begins to angrily beat and kick the rock tent as Aang and Sokka watch]
Aang: [to Sokka] Should we do something?
Sokka: Hey, I'm just enjoying the show.
[Aang walks over to Katara]
Aang: Okay, okay. You both need to calm down.
Katara: Both?! (very outraged) I'M COMPLETELY CALM!!!!
Aang: (shocked by Katara's outburst) I can see that... [backs up and scoots away]

Mai: Wads of wet fur, how delightful.
Ty Lee: Hmm, they're not wads, they're more like, bundles. Or bunches? It's got an "uh" sound.
Mai: ...Clumps?
Ty Lee: (hugs Mai) Clumps! They're clumps!

Azula: You still don't know who I am? You don't see the family resemblance? Let me give you a hint. (covers left eye with her hand, imitating Zuko) "I must find the Avatar to restore my honor!"
[Aang stares with blank face.]
Azula: It's okay. You can laugh. It's funny.
Aang: So, what now?
Azula: Now? Now, it's over. You're tired, and you have no place to go. You can run, but I'll catch you.
Aang:... I'm not running.

Azula: (to Aang) Do you really want to fight me?
(Zuko jumps in, with a fighting stance)
Zuko: (to Azula) Yes, I really do.
Aang: Zuko!
Azula: I was wondering when you would show up, Zuzu.
Aang: "Zuzu"? (stifles a laugh)
Zuko: Back off, Azula. He's mine!
Azula: I'm not going anywhere.

Bitter WorkEdit

Aang: So, what cool move are you gonna teach me first? Rock-a-lanche? The Trembler? Oh, oh, maybe I can learn to make a whirlpool outta land...
Toph: Let's start with, "Move a rock."

Sokka: (aiming at a small prey animal) You're awfully cute, but unfortunately for you, you're made of meat.

(Zuko and Iroh are drinking tea together)
Iroh: Lightning is a pure expression of firebending, without aggression. It is not fueled by rage or emotion, the way other firebending is. Some call lightning "the cold-blooded fire." It is precise and deadly, like Azula. To perform the technique requires peace of mind.
Zuko: I see. That's why we're drinking tea. To calm the mind.
Iroh: Oh, yeah, good point. I mean, yes.

Zuko (yelling angrily after failed attempt to create lightning causing explosion): Why can't I do it!
Zuko: Instead of lightning, it keeps exploding in my face
Zuko (self-resenting expression): Like everything always does.

Zuko (yelling angrily toward the sky): You've always thrown everything you could at me! Well, I can take it, and now I can give it back! Come on! STRIKE ME! You've never held back before!

Zuko: Great! I'm ready to try with real lightning!
Iroh: [taken aback] What, are you crazy? Lightning is very dangerous.
Zuko: I thought that was the point: you teaching me to protect myself from it!
Iroh: Yeah, but I'm not going to shoot LIGHTNING at you!

Sokka: Aang, this is my friend Foo-Foo Cuddlypoops, Foo-Foo Cuddlypoops, Aang.

Zuko: So uncle, I've been thinking. It’s only a matter of time before I run into Azula again. I’m going to need to know more advanced firebending if I want to stand a chance against her. I know what you’re going to say: she's my sister and I should be trying to get along with her--
Iroh: No, she's crazy and she needs to go down.

[Sokka is buried in the earth and a hippo comes running with an apple in its mouth]
Sokka: Hey! Looks like my karma is already paying off.
[Hippo rolls the apple but not within range of Sokka's hands or mouth]
Sokka [Elated]: That's okay. I got it.
[Sokka struggles to move hands but boomerang instead falls out off his bag]
Sokka [after 10 second pause and annoyed]: Now come back, boomerang.

Iroh: [drawing the Fire Nation symbol in the sand before Zuko] Fire is the element of power. The people of the Fire Nation have desire and will, and the energy and drive to achieve what they want. [draws the Earth Kingdom symbol] Earth is the element of substance. The people of the Earth Kingdom are diverse and strong. They are persistent and enduring. [draws the Air Nomads symbol] Air is the element of freedom. The Air Nomads detached themselves from worldly concerns and found peace and freedom. Also, they apparently had pretty good senses of humor! [smiles]
[Zuko stares blankly at Iroh. He is not amused.]
Iroh: [continuing, drawing the Water Tribe symbol] Water is the element of change. The people of the Water Tribe are capable of adapting to many things. They have a deep sense of community and love that holds them together though anything.
Zuko: Why are you telling me these things?
Iroh: It is important to draw wisdom from many different places. If we take it from only one place, it becomes rigid and stale. Understanding others, the other elements, and the other nations, will help you become whole.

[Sokka is buried in the earth and is pleading to the spirits to let him out]
Sokka: Okay, karma person or thing, whoever's in charge of this stuff... If I can just get out of this situation alive, I will give up meat and sarcasm. Okay? That's all I got. Pretty much my whole identity: Sokka the meat and sarcasm guy. But I'm willing to be Sokka, the veggies and straight talk fellow. Deal?
(sees Aang approaching)
Sokka: Aang! Thank goodness! Have you got any meat?

(Aang has just agreed to earthbend Sokka out of the ground.)
Toph: Actually, you might wanna let me do that. You're a little still new to might accidentally crush him.
Sokka: Yeah, no crushing, please!

Toph: Gooood morning earthbending student!

Zuko But I don't feel any shame at all. I'm as proud as ever!
Iroh: Prince Zuko, pride is not the opposite of shame but its source.

The LibraryEdit

Toph: There it is!
(everybody looks to where Toph points, only to see nothing)
(everyone frowns at Toph)
Toph: That's what it will sound like when one of you spots it. (Waves hand repeatedly up and down in front of her face, reminding everybody that she's blind)

Katara: You got something against libraries?
Toph: I've held books before, and I gotta tell you, they don't exactly "do it" for me.
Katara: Oh, right. Sorry.

Sokka: I'm going to spend my vacation AT THE LIBRARY!

Wan Shi Tong: (to Sokka) So, who are you trying to destroy?
Sokka: What? No! No destroying, we're not into that.
Wan Shi Tong: Then why are you here?
Sokka: (hesitates) ...Knowledge for knowledge's sake?
Wan Shi Tong: If you're going to lie to an all-knowing spirit being, you should at least put some effort into it.

Wan Shi Tong: You think you're the first person to believe their war was justified?! Countless others before you have come here, seeking weapons, weaknesses or battle strategies!
Aang: We had no choice! Please, we're just desperate to protect the people we love!
Wan Shi Tong: And now I'm going to protect what I love.
(Wan Shi Tong spreads his wings; the library starts to shake and flood with sand)
Wan Shi Tong: I'm taking my knowledge back! No one will ever abuse it again!
Sokka: He's sinking the building! We've gotta get out of here!
Wan Shi Tong: I'm afraid I can't allow that. You already know too much. (shrieks and chases them)

Wan Shi Tong: (to Katara; preparing to fight him as she is being chased) Your waterbending won't do you much good here. I have studied Northern Water Style, Southern Water Style, even Foggy Swamp Style.
(Sokka smashes a book against Wan Shi Tong's head, causing him to collapse)
Sokka: That's called Sokka Style! Learn it!

Professor Zei: [About Appa] Delightful! I only wish I spoke his tongue. Oh, the stories this beast could tell.
Momo: (chittering to the Professor)
Professor Zei: Shush, chatty monkey!

The DesertEdit

(Both Sokka and Momo take a drink of the juice in a cactus)
Sokka: (hallucinating after drinking cactus juice) Drink cactus juice, it'll quench ya. Nothing's quenchier. It's the quenchiest!
Katara: (throws away the piece of cactus) Okay, I think you had enough.
Sokka: Who lit Toph on fire?

[Momo spins in a circle in the air and dive bombs to the ground.]

Toph: Can I get some of that cactus?
Katara: I don’t think that’s a good idea. Come on, we need to find Aang.

[She and Toph walk on; when Sokka doesn't follow, Katara grabs him and drags him along with them]

Sokka: How did we get out here in the middle of the ocean?

(as Iroh and the Pai Sho Player leave the back room)
Zuko: What’s going on? Is the club meeting over?
Iroh: Everything is taken care of. We’re heading to Ba-Sing-Se.
Zuko: Ba-Sing-Se? Why would we go to the Earth Kingdom capital?
Pai Sho Player: The city is filled with refugees. No one will notice two more.
Iroh: We can hide in plain sight there and it’s the safest place in the world from the Fire Nation. Even I couldn't break through to the city.

Aang:(sees a cloud that looks like Appa in front of the moon) Appa!
Sokka: (under the influence of cactus juice) Appa? Now why would Princess Yue need him? (grabs Momo's tail and brushes it against his cheek dreamily) She's the moon; she flies by herself!

[Aang confronts a group of Sandbenders, including the ones who stole Appa]

Aang: You tell me where he is, now!

[He obliterates one of the Sand Sailers with Airbending]

Sha-Mo: (sternly, to his son) What did you do?
Gashiun: I-It wasn't me!
Toph: You said to put a muzzle on him!
Aang: (enraged) You muzzled Appa?!

[Aang enters the Avatar State; he smashes another of the Sand Sailers]

Gashiun: I'm sorry! I didn't know it belonged to the Avatar!
Gashiun: I-I traded him, to some merchants! He's... probably in Ba Sing Se by now. They were gonna sell him there. [Aang's glowing eyes narrow] Please, we'll escort you out of the desert! We'll help however we can!

[A huge whirlwind begins to form around Aang. Sokka grabs Toph's arm]

Sokka: (to the Sandbenders) Just get out of here! RUN!

[Everyone flees from Aang, except Katara. As he begins to rise off the ground, she approaches him and grabs his arm; he stares down at her, his face contorted with rage and grief. Katara pulls him back down to the ground. As the winds begin to die down, Sokka sees tears running from Aang's glowing eyes as Katara hugs him, bringing him out of the Avatar State]

The Serpent's PassEdit

Katara: Waterbending bomb! Yeah! (performs a tumbling cannonball into the pool and She sends up a massive column of water that washes Aang ashore, shattering his ice block)
Sokka: (sarcastically as he holds a dripping map) Sure, 5000 year old maps from the spirit library, just splash some water on ‘em.

Security Woman: I told you already: no vegetables on the ferry! One cabbage slug could destroy the entire eco-system of Ba Sing Se! Security!
[A Platypus Bear destroys the cart full of cabbages]
Cabbage Merchant: MY CABBAGES!!!

[Suki asks Sokka why he is being overprotective of her]
Sokka: It's so hard to lose someone you care about. Something happened at the North Pole and I couldn't protect someone. I don't want anything like that to ever happen again.
Suki: I lost someone I cared about. He didn't die. He just went away. I only had a few days to get to know him, but he was smart and brave and funny...
Sokka: (suspiciously) Who is this guy? Is he taller than me?
Suki: (deadpan) No. He's about your height.
Sokka: Is he better-looking?
Suki: It is you, stupid!
Sokka: Oh.

[after Smellerbee is hurt by Iroh's mistaking her for a boy, Longshot catches up with her and looks at her without speaking]
Smellerbee: I know. You're right. As long as I'm confident in who I am, it doesn't matter what other people think. Thanks, Longshot.
[Longshot nods]

[Suki rescues Toph from drowning]
Toph: (thinking that Suki is Sokka) Oh, Sokka! You saved me! (kisses Suki on the cheek]
Suki: Um, actually, it's me.
Toph: Oh.... well, heh heh. You can go ahead and let me drown now.

Sokka: Suki, you know about giant sea monsters, do something!
Suki: Just because I live near the Unagi doesn't mean I'm an expert.
Sokka: [picks up Momo and offers it to the Sea Serpent] Oh great and powerful sea serpent, please accept this humble and tasty offering. Thank You.
Katara: Sokka!

Sokka: What's wrong?
Ying: The baby's coming!
Sokka: What!? Now!? Can't you hold it in or something?!
Katara: Sokka, Calm down. I helped Gran-Gran deliver lots of babies back home.
Sokka: This isn't the same as delivering an arctic seal! This is a real... human.... thing!
Katara: It's called a baby, and I helped to deliver plenty of those too.

The DrillEdit

Mai: She [Azula] can shoot all the lightning she wants at me, I'm not going into that wall sludge juice. (Shudders, then closes hatch Katara, Sokka, and Ty Lee jumped into)

Ty Lee: (Looking through a periscope at the dust cloud Toph made) Hey...Look at that dust cloud. It's so...poofy! (Mimes by closing and opening her hand) Poof!

Iroh: I know you're not supposed to cry over spilled tea, but (sniffs) it's just so sad!

Katara: (Annoyed) You know, I am just about sick and tired of you telling me what to do all day. You're like a chattering hog-monkey!
[Katara bends a wave of slurry into Sokka's face, knocking him over]

[Toph takes the group under ground]
Sokka: It's so dark down here. I can't see a thing.
Toph: (Sarcastically) Oh no, what a nightmare!
Sokka: Sorry.

Mai: [leaning out of a hatch in the back of the drill] We lost.

City of Walls and SecretsEdit

Dai Li Agent: There is no War in Ba Sing Se. Here, we are safe. Here, we are free.

Katara: The King is throwing a party at the palace tonight for his pet bear.
Aang: Don't you mean platypus bear?
Katara: No, it just says, 'bear'.
Sokka: Certainly you mean his pet skunk bear?
Toph: Or his armadillo bear?
Aang: Gopher bear?
Katara: Just, 'bear'.
(short pause)
Toph: This place is weird.

Long Feng: By the way, I'm Long Feng. I'm a cultural minister to the king.
Katara: I'm Kua Mai, and this is [gestures to Toph]...Dum.

Toph: Well, no offense to you simple country folk, but a real society crowd would spot you from a mile away. You've got no manners.
Katara: Excuse me? I've got no manners? You're not exactly lady fancy fingers.
Toph: [burps] I learned proper society behavior and chose to leave it. You never learned anything. And frankly, it's a little too late.
Sokka: Ah-Ha, but you learned it. You could teach us.
Aang: Yeah, I'm mastering every element. How hard could manners be? [grabs a nearby curtain and drapes it around himself like a robe, and begins talking in a very sophisticated manner] Good evening, Mr. Sokka Watertribe. Ms. Katara Watertribe. Lord Momo of the Momo Dynasty, your Momo-ness.
Sokka: [in a fancy accent] Avatar Aang how you do go on!
[Both of them take turns bowing then try to bow at the same time, but they knock each other's foreheads' together and fall backward]
Toph: Katara might be able to pull it off, but you two would be lucky to pass as busboys.
Sokka: But I feel so fancy!

Iroh: (Sips tea) Blech! This tea is nothing more than hot leaf juice!
Zuko: Uncle, that's what all tea is.
Iroh: How could a member of my own family say something so horrible?

Katara: Look, the inner wall. I can’t believe we finally made it to Ba Sing Se in one piece.
Sokka: Hey don’t jinx it! We could still be attacked by some giant, exploding Fire Nation spoon. Or find out the city’s been submerged in an ocean full of killer shrimp.
Toph: You been hitting the cactus juice again?
Sokka: I'm just saying, weird stuff happens to us. [A large man sucking on a cob of corn sits between Sokka and Toph]

Zuko: This city is a prison. I don’t want to make a life here.
Iroh: Life happens wherever you are, whether you make it or not.

Party Guest 1: (about the king's bear) He's taking all the good stuff!
Party Guest 2: Quiet! You don't know what I had to do to get seats this near the bear!

Iroh: (to Zuko) Would you like some tea?
Zuko: We've been working in a tea shop the whole day. I'm sick of tea.
Iroh: (stops making tea and lifts his hands in exasperation) Sick of tea? That's like being sick of breathing!

The Tales of Ba Sing SeEdit

[Iroh sets up a small memorial for his deceased son, Lu Ten]

Iroh: (tearfully) Happy Birthday, my son. If only I could have helped you...
Iroh: (singing)
Leaves from the vine
Falling so slow
Like fragile tiny shells
Drifting in the foam
Little soldier boy
Come marching home
Brave soldier boy
Comes marching home...

(Katara opens a door and sees Toph lying facedown on the floor, asleep)
Katara: Toph, aren't you gonna get ready for the day?
(Toph wakes up, hair frazzled, and spits)
Toph: I'm ready.
Katara: Aren't you gonna clean up? You've got a little dirt on your....everywhere actually.
Toph: You call it dirt. I call it a healthy coating of earth.

Iroh: (After a group of children accidentally breaks a window while playing soccer) It is usually best to admit mistakes when they occur, and to seek to restore honor...
Very large man: (Yelling threateningly through the window) When I'm through with you kids, the window won't be the only thing that's broken!
Iroh: ...but not this time. Run!

(A mugger approaches Iroh in an alley)
Mugger: You! Hand over your money!
(Iroh looks down and notices the mugger's unstable stance)
Iroh: What are you doing?
Mugger: I'm mugging you!
Iroh: With that stance??
Mugger: Wha… What are you talking about? Just give me your money, old man!
Iroh: With a poor stance you are unbalanced and can be easily knocked over.
(Iroh knocks mugger down and then helps him up)
Iroh: With a solid stance you are a much more serious threat!

Iroh:It’s always best to believe in one’s self but with a little help from others can be a great blessing!

Iroh: How was your night, Prince Zuko?
[Zuko slams the door to his room. Iroh looks disappointed and Zuko slides the door open a little]
Zuko: (quietly) It was nice.
(Iroh smiles)

Appa's Lost DaysEdit

[Azula is talking to the Kyoshi warriors, who fight with fans]
Azula: Who are you? The Avatar's fangirls?
[a short pause]
Ty Lee: ...Oh! I get it! Good one Azula.

[Mai pins a Kyoshi warrior to a tree with her shurikens]

Mai: You're so colorful, it's making me nauseous. (launches darts at another warrior)
[Ty Lee unleashes a flurry of jabs into the back of a Kyoshi warrior, dropping her, and unleashes a final taunt]
Ty Lee: You are not prettier than we are.

[Suki is about to attack Azula]
Azula: Don't you know that fans only make flames stronger?
[Azula proceeds at attacking Suki]

Guru Pathik: I know I am not the person you expected...and I did not expect to be licked by a giant tongue just now.

Lake LaogaiEdit

Sokka: Hey, I thought designing the "Lost Appa" poster was my job! I've been working all day on my Appa!
(shows Katara and Aang his picture. Katara is visibly trying not to laugh.')
Aang: Sokka, the arrow is on Appa's head.
Sokka: This is his head!
Katara: Why are feet coming out of it?
Sokka: Those are his horns! I haven't seen him in a while, okay?
Toph: Well, it looks just like him to me.
Sokka: Oh, thanks, I worked really--[breaks off, remembering that Toph is blind]...Why do you feel the need to do that?

Sokka: We'll split up to cover more area. Toph, I guess you should just come with me.
Toph: (Grumpily) Why? Because you think I can't put up posters on my own!? (Swipes glue across a wall, snatches a poster from Sokka, and slams it backwards onto the paste).
Toph: It's upside-down, isn't it? I'll just go with Sokka.

Aang: We need to find a way to jog his real memories.
Sokka: (provokingly) Maybe Katara should kiss him! That should bring something back!
Katara: Maybe you should kiss him, Sokka.
Sokka: Hey, just an idea.
Aang: (jealous mutter) A bad one.

Toph: Was this guy your boyfriend or something?
Katara: What?! No!
Toph: (teasing, sing-song tone) I can tell you're lying~!

Longshot: (speaking for the only time on-screen) There's no time. Just go. We'll take care of him. He's our leader.
Jet: Don't worry Katara, I'll be fine.
Toph: (sadly as she's walking away to Sokka) He's lying.

Zuko: (looking at the tied-up Appa) Uncle?
Iroh: (walks into the cell) So, the Blue Spirit? I wonder who could be behind that mask?
Zuko: What are you doing here?
Iroh: I was just about to ask you the same thing. What do you plan to do now that you've found the Avatar's bison? Keep it locked in our new apartment? Should I go put on a pot of tea for him?!
Zuko: First I have to get it out of here.
Iroh: And then what?! You never think these things through! This is exactly what happened when you captured the Avatar at the North Pole! You had him, and then you had nowhere to go!
Zuko: I would've figured something out.
Iroh: No! If his friends hadn't found you, you would have frozen to death!
Zuko: (very angry) I know my own destiny, Uncle.
Iroh: Is it your own destiny, or is it a destiny someone else has tried to force on you?
Zuko: Stop it, Uncle! I have to do this!
Iroh: I'm begging you, Prince Zuko! Its time for you to look inward and begin asking yourself the big questions: Who are you? and What do you want?

The Earth KingEdit

Sokka: Looks like Long Feng is long gone! (laughs) Oh, I've been waiting to use that one!

Toph: I've seen enough of Ba Sing Se. And I can't even see!

Toph: (Next to the Earth King while riding Appa bear-back) First time flying?
Earth King: It's both exciting and terrifying.
Toph: Yeah, I hate it too.

The GuruEdit

Azula: It's terrible when you can't trust the people who are closest to you.

Guru Pathik: Third is the fire chakra, located in the stomach. It is strengthened by willpower and blocked by shame.
Aang: My fire chakra would like to eat something other than onion and banana juice.
Guru Pathik: (laughs) Good one. Moving on.

Azula: We have been presented with an extraordinary opportunity, girls.
Ty Lee: Mai finally gets to wear make-up that's not totally depressing?
Mai: (glares at her) Ha ha.

Guru Pathik: Hmm, That chakra opened less like a flowing creek, and more like a (pauses) burping bison!
Aang: (burping) Taste like onion and banana juice... but strangely something else... (smacks lips together) Pickles?
Guru Pathik: (shrugging) Muhum?

Guru Pathik: You have indeed felt a great loss. But love is a form of energy, and it swirls all around us. The Air Nomads' love for you has not left this world. It is still inside of your heart, and is reborn in the form of new love.

Aang: This is the last chakra, isn't it?
Guru Pathik: Yes. Once you open this chakra, you will be able to go in and out of the Avatar State at will. And when you are in the Avatar State, you will have complete control and awareness of all your actions.
Aang: Let's do this!
Guru Pathik: The thought chakra is located at the crown of the head. It deals with pure cosmic energy, and is blocked by earthly attachment. Meditate on what attaches you to this world.
(Aang imagines various images and memories of Katara)
Guru Pathik: Now, let all of those attachments go. Let them flow down the river, forgotten.
Aang: (snapping out of his meditation) What? Why would I let go of Katara? I...I-I love her!
Guru Pathik: Learn to let her go, or you cannot let the pure cosmic energy flow in from the universe.
Aang: Why would I choose cosmic energy over Katara? How could it be a bad thing that I feel an attachment to her? Three chakras ago, that was a good thing!
Guru Pathik: You must learn to let go.

Aang: I'm sorry, but I can't let go of Katara.
Guru Pathik: Aang, to master the Avatar State, you must open all the chakras. Surrender yourself.
Aang: Okay, I'll try.
Guru Pathik: Now think of your attachments. And let them go. Let the pure cosmic energy flow.
(He meditates again, beginning to let Katara go. We then see him suspended above the planet, facing a giant, glowing version of himself in the Avatar State. He begins to walk towards it and his tattoos start to glow. Suddenly, however, he hears Katara scream and sees a vision of her in chains and begins to run towards her. His tattoos fade along with the solid light beneath his feet, and so he falls back to the earth)
Aang: Katara's in danger! I have to go!
(Aang gets up and begins to run off)
Guru Pathik: No Aang! By choosing attachment you have locked the chakra! If you leave now, you won't be able to enter the Avatar State at all!
(After a moment's hesitation, Aang runs off)

The Crossroads of DestinyEdit

Iroh: Believe me when I say there is good inside him [Zuko]!
Sokka: Good inside him isn't enough! Why don't you come back when it's outside him as well!

Sokka: We should split up. Aang, you go with Iroh to look for Katara and the angry jerk, [to Iroh] no offense.
Iroh: None taken.

Sokka: Thank goodness we're in time!
Earth King: In time for what?
Ty Lee (excitedly): Yeah. What are you in time for- (she cartwheels toward Sokka, and giggles) ...cutie?
Sokka (nervously): Um, I'm kinda involved with Suki.
Ty Lee: Who?

Long Feng: Now comes the part where I double cross you. Dai Li, arrest the Fire Nation princess! (The Dai Li don't movie) I said arrest her! What is wrong with you!
Azula: It's because they haven't made up their minds. They're waiting to see how this is going to end.
Long Feng: What are you talking about?
Azula: I can see your whole history in your eyes. You were born with nothing, so you've had to struggle, and connive, and claw your way to power. But true power, the divine right to rule, is something you're born with. The fact is, they don't know which one of us is going to be sitting on that throne, and which one is going to be bowing down. But I know, and you know. (She sits on the throne) Well?
Long Feng: (defeated, he bows before her) You've beaten me at my own game.
Azula: Don't flatter yourself. You were never even a player.

Aang: Well, I met with this Guru who was supposed to help me master the Avatar State and control this great power, but to do it I had to let go of someone I love and I just couldn't.
Iroh: Perfection and power are overrated. I think you were very wise to choose happiness and love.
Aang: What happens if I can't save everyone and beat Azula? Without the Avatar State, what if I'm not powerful enough?
Iroh: I don't know the answer. Sometimes life is like this dark tunnel, you can't always see the light at the end of the tunnel, but if you just keep moving you will come to a better place.

Zuko: Uncle, I don't understand. What are you doing with the Avatar?
Aang: [glares at him] Saving you, that's what.

[Zuko starts to advance on him, but Iroh holds him back]

Iroh: It's time we talked. [to Aang] Go help your other friends. We'll catch up with you.

[Aang and Katara leave]

Zuko: [not looking Iroh directly in the eye] Why, Uncle?
Iroh: [seriously] You're not the man you used to be, Zuko. You are stronger, and wiser, and freer than you have ever been. And now you've come to the crossroads of your destiny. It's time for you to choose. It's time for you to choose good.

[Iroh is suddenly immobilized by the crystals, startling Zuko]

Azula: [comes over with two Dai Li Agents behind her] I expected this kind of treachery from Uncle. But Zuko, Prince Zuko. You're a lot of things, but you aren't a traitor, are you?
Zuko: Release him immediately!
Azula:[slyly] It's not too late for you, Zuko. You could still redeem yourself.
Iroh: The kind of "redemption" she offers is not for you!
Azula: Why don't you let him decide, Uncle? I need you, Zuko. I've plotted every move of this day, this glorious day in Fire Nation history, and the only way we win is together. At the end of this day, you will have your honor back. You will have Father's love. You will have everything you want.

[In the middle of a duel after Zuko betrays Katara]

Katara: I thought you had changed!
Zuko: (grimly) I have changed.

[As Team Avatar escapes Ba Sing Se with a seriously injured Aang]

Earth King Kuei: The Earth Kingdom... has fallen.
