0:02 - 0:04 Water.
0:04 - 0:06 Earth.
0:06 - 0:08 Fire.
0:08 - 0:10 Air.
0:11 - 0:14 Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
0:15 - 0:19 Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
0:19 - 0:23 Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them.
0:23 - 0:26 But when the world needed him most, he vanished.
0:27 - 0:30 100 years passed, and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar,
0:30 - 0:32 an airbender named Aang.
0:32 - 0:35 And although his airbending skills are great,
0:35 - 0:37 he has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone.
0:37 - 0:38 Oof!
0:39 - 0:41 But I believe Aang can save the world.
1:10 - 1:14 Spare coins for weary travelers?
1:15 - 1:17 This is humiliating. We're royalty.
1:18 - 1:20 These people should be giving us whatever we want.
1:20 - 1:23 They will, if you ask nicely.
1:25 - 1:29 Spare change for a hungry old man?
1:30 - 1:31 Aw, here you go.
1:32 - 1:38 The coin is appreciated, but not as much as your smile.
1:41 - 1:44 How about some entertainment in exchange for...
1:45 - 1:46 A gold piece?
1:46 - 1:48 We're not performers.
1:49 - 1:51 Not professional, anyway.
1:51 - 1:56 It's a long, long way to Ba Sing Se
1:56 - 2:02 But the girls in the city They look so pretty
2:02 - 2:05 Come on, we're talking a gold piece here.
2:05 - 2:06 Let's see some action.
2:08 - 2:09 Dance.
2:09 - 2:14 They kiss so sweet That you really have to meet
2:14 - 2:18 The girls from Ba Sing Se
2:22 - 2:25 Nothing like a fat man dancing for his dinner.
2:25 - 2:26 Here you go.
2:29 - 2:32 Such a kind man.
2:55 - 2:58 Hey, you taking us down for a reason?
2:59 - 3:01 Aang, why are we going down?
3:01 - 3:02 What?
3:02 - 3:04 I didn't even notice.
3:04 - 3:06 Are you noticing now?
3:07 - 3:08 Is something wrong?
3:08 - 3:10 I know this is gonna sound weird,
3:10 - 3:13 but I think the swamp is... calling to me.
3:13 - 3:15 Is it telling you where we can get something to eat?
3:15 - 3:19 No, I, I think it wants us to land there.
3:19 - 3:20 No offense to the swamp,
3:20 - 3:23 but I don't see any land there to land on.
3:23 - 3:24 I don't know.
3:24 - 3:27 Bumi said to learn earthbending, I would have to wait and listen.
3:27 - 3:30 And now, I'm actually hearing the earth.
3:30 - 3:31 Do you want me to ignore it?
3:33 - 3:34 Yes. I don't know.
3:35 - 3:37 There's something ominous about that place.
3:41 - 3:43 See? Even Appa and Momo don't like it here.
3:44 - 3:48 Okay, since everyone feels so strongly about this, bye, swamp.
3:48 - 3:50 Yip yip!
3:55 - 3:58 You better throw in an extra yip. We gotta move.
4:08 - 4:09 Ahh!
4:39 - 4:41 Where's Appa and Momo?
4:47 - 4:48 Appa!
4:49 - 4:50 Momo!
4:54 - 4:56 Sokka, you've got an elbow leech.
4:56 - 4:57 Where, where?
4:57 - 4:59 Where do you think?
4:59 - 5:02 Why do things keep attaching to me?
5:04 - 5:06 You couldn't find them?
5:06 - 5:07 No...
5:07 - 5:10 And the tornado, it just disappeared.
5:47 - 5:49 We better speed things up.
5:51 - 5:53 Maybe we should be a little nicer to the swamp.
5:54 - 5:55 Aang, these are just plants.
5:55 - 5:57 Do you want me to say please and thank you
5:57 - 5:59 as I swing my machete back and forth?
5:59 - 6:01 Maybe you should listen to Aang.
6:01 - 6:05 Something about this place feels... alive.
6:05 - 6:08 I'm sure there are lots of things that are alive here.
6:08 - 6:11 And if we don't want to wind up getting eaten by them,
6:11 - 6:13 we need to find Appa as fast as we can.
6:47 - 6:48 Appa!
6:48 - 6:50 Momo?
6:50 - 6:53 There's no way they can hear us and no way we can see them.
6:53 - 6:55 We'll have to make camp for the night.
6:56 - 6:58 Ah, ugh!
6:59 - 7:00 What was that?
7:01 - 7:03 Nothing, just swamp gas.
7:03 - 7:05 Look, there's nothing supernatural going on here.
7:06 - 7:07 Ugh...
7:11 - 7:13 I think we should build a fire.
7:16 - 7:18 Sokka, the longer we're here,
7:18 - 7:20 the more I think you shouldn't be doing that.
7:20 - 7:21 No, I asked the swamp.
7:21 - 7:24 It said this was fine. Right, swamp?
7:24 - 7:26 No problem, Sokka.
7:32 - 7:35 Does anyone else get the feeling that we're being watched?
7:35 - 7:38 Please, we're all alone out here.
7:44 - 7:47 Except for them.
7:47 - 7:49 Right, except for them.
8:37 - 8:38 Hagh!
8:38 - 8:39 Ahh!
8:39 - 8:41 Ahh!
9:07 - 9:08 Ugh.
9:12 - 9:13 Ahh!
9:13 - 9:14 Ugh...
9:20 - 9:22 Guys?
9:27 - 9:30 What'd you reckon make a track like that, Tho?
9:30 - 9:31 Don't know, Due.
9:31 - 9:35 Something with six legs, pretty big 'uns, too.
9:36 - 9:38 Leaves a nice, wide trail to follow.
9:38 - 9:41 You know what's at the end of that trail?
9:42 - 9:44 Dinner.
10:16 - 10:18 Aang?
10:18 - 10:20 Sokka?
10:23 - 10:24 Hello?
10:24 - 10:25 Hello.
10:25 - 10:27 Can you help me?
10:29 - 10:30 Mom?
10:30 - 10:32 Mom!
10:35 - 10:37 I can't believe...
10:47 - 10:49 Aang!
10:49 - 10:53 Stupid swamp. Dumb, ugly vines.
10:53 - 10:55 Katara!
10:55 - 10:57 You think you're so tough, huh?
10:59 - 11:00 Ah!
11:04 - 11:07 Hello?
11:10 - 11:12 Yue?
11:12 - 11:14 This is just a trick of the light...
11:14 - 11:16 Swamp gas.
11:16 - 11:18 I hit my head running away last night.
11:18 - 11:20 I'm going crazy.
11:22 - 11:25 You didn't protect me. You didn't protect me.
11:29 - 11:30 Ah!
11:38 - 11:41 Katara!
11:41 - 11:43 Appa!
11:44 - 11:45 Hello?
11:45 - 11:47 Who are you?
11:48 - 11:50 Hey!
11:50 - 11:51 Come back.
12:25 - 12:27 Lookee there, Tho.
12:27 - 12:30 Is that a little hairy fella riding that thing?
12:30 - 12:32 No, that's what they call a "Iemu."
12:32 - 12:36 Saw one at a traveling show once. Real smart, they say.
12:36 - 12:38 Bet he tastes a lot like possum-chicken.
12:38 - 12:41 You think everything tastes like possum-chicken.
12:41 - 12:44 Come on, now, fellas, just a little closer.
12:44 - 12:46 Nice and easy.
12:46 - 12:47 Nothin' to worry about.
12:48 - 12:49 We just fixin' to eat ya.
12:51 - 12:52 What'd ya say that fer?
12:52 - 12:54 Well, we are.
12:54 - 12:55 But you don't have to tell them that.
12:56 - 12:57 How'd I know they'd understand me?
12:57 - 12:59 Come on.
13:26 - 13:28 Who are you?
13:33 - 13:34 Ahh!
13:35 - 13:36 Ugh.
13:38 - 13:40 What do you guys think you're doing?
13:40 - 13:42 I've been looking all over for you.
13:42 - 13:45 Well, I've been wandering around looking for you.
13:45 - 13:47 I was chasing some girl.
13:47 - 13:49 What girl? I don't know.
13:50 - 13:52 I heard laughing, and I saw some girl in a fancy dress.
13:52 - 13:54 Well, there must be a tea party here,
13:54 - 13:57 and we just didn't get our invitations.
13:57 - 13:59 I thought I saw Mom.
14:02 - 14:04 Look, we were all just scared and hungry,
14:04 - 14:06 and our minds were playing tricks on us.
14:06 - 14:08 That's why we all saw things out here.
14:08 - 14:09 You saw something, too?
14:09 - 14:11 I thought I saw Yue.
14:11 - 14:12 But that doesn't prove anything.
14:13 - 14:15 Look, I think about her all the time.
14:15 - 14:17 And you saw Mom, someone you miss a lot.
14:17 - 14:19 What about me?
14:19 - 14:21 I didn't know the girl I saw.
14:21 - 14:23 And all our visions led us right here.
14:24 - 14:27 Okay, so where's here, the middle of the swamp?
14:27 - 14:28 Yeah...
14:29 - 14:31 The center.
14:32 - 14:34 It's the heart of the swamp.
14:34 - 14:35 It's been calling us here.
14:36 - 14:37 I knew it.
14:37 - 14:40 It's just a tree. It can't call anyone.
14:41 - 14:43 For the last time, there's nothing after us,
14:43 - 14:46 and there's nothing magical happening here.
15:12 - 15:14 Ahh!
15:38 - 15:40 Ah!
15:41 - 15:42 Ugh!
15:51 - 15:53 Ahh! Unh!
16:12 - 16:14 Ah!
16:18 - 16:21 Now, what would a "Iemu" need a shirt fer?
16:22 - 16:23 Ahh!
16:23 - 16:25 Ugh!
17:03 - 17:05 Ugh!
17:12 - 17:13 Ah!
17:15 - 17:17 Ugh.
17:19 - 17:20 Ugh!
17:35 - 17:38 There's someone in there! He's bending the vines.
17:46 - 17:47 Ah!
17:52 - 17:55 Why did you call me here if you just wanted to kill us?
17:55 - 17:57 Wait!
17:57 - 17:59 I didn't call you here.
18:01 - 18:03 We were flying over, and I heard something calling to me,
18:04 - 18:05 telling me to land.
18:05 - 18:06 He's the Avatar.
18:06 - 18:08 Stuff like that happens to us a lot.
18:08 - 18:10 The Avatar?
18:10 - 18:11 Come with me.
18:14 - 18:16 So who are you, then?
18:16 - 18:19 I protect the swamp from folks that want to hurt it,
18:20 - 18:22 like this fellow with his big knife.
18:22 - 18:23 See?
18:23 - 18:25 Completely reasonable. Not a monster,
18:25 - 18:27 just a regular guy defending his home.
18:27 - 18:29 Nothing mystical about it.
18:30 - 18:33 Oh, the swamp is a mystical place, all right.
18:33 - 18:34 It's sacred.
18:35 - 18:39 I reached enlightenment right here, under the banyan grove tree.
18:39 - 18:42 I heard it calling me, just like you did.
18:43 - 18:46 Sure you did. It seems real chatty.
18:47 - 18:51 See, this whole swamp is actually just one tree
18:51 - 18:53 spread out over miles.
18:53 - 18:56 Branches spread and sink and take root
18:56 - 18:58 and then spread some more...
18:58 - 19:01 One big, living organism,
19:01 - 19:04 just like the entire world.
19:06 - 19:10 I get how the tree is one big thing, but the whole world?
19:10 - 19:11 Sure.
19:11 - 19:13 You think you're any different
19:13 - 19:16 from me or your friends or this tree?
19:16 - 19:18 If you listen hard enough,
19:18 - 19:21 you can hear every living thing breathing together.
19:21 - 19:24 You can feel everything growing.
19:25 - 19:29 We are all living together, even if most folks don't act like it.
19:29 - 19:32 We all have the same roots,
19:32 - 19:35 and we are all branches of the same tree.
19:35 - 19:37 But what did our visions mean?
19:37 - 19:41 In the swamp, we see visions of people we've lost,
19:41 - 19:45 people we loved, folks we think are gone.
19:45 - 19:50 But the swamp tells us they're not. We're still connected to 'em.
19:50 - 19:54 Time is an illusion, and so is death.
19:54 - 19:56 But what about my vision?
19:56 - 19:57 It was someone I had never met.
19:58 - 20:00 You're the Avatar. You tell me.
20:01 - 20:04 Time is an illusion...
20:04 - 20:08 So, it's someone I will meet.
20:09 - 20:13 Sorry to interrupt the lesson, but we still need to find Appa and Momo.
20:13 - 20:15 I think I know how to find them.
20:15 - 20:18 Everything is connected.
20:37 - 20:38 Come on, we've gotta hurry!
20:39 - 20:42 Set my lines by the riverbed
20:42 - 20:46 Caught ten fish, and I killed 'em dead
20:46 - 20:49 Cut 'em and gut 'em And I toss the heads
20:49 - 20:52 In the water To keep them cat-gators fed
20:58 - 20:59 Appa!
21:00 - 21:02 Oh!
21:02 - 21:03 We're under attack!
21:07 - 21:09 Hey, you guys are waterbenders.
21:10 - 21:11 You, too?
21:11 - 21:13 That means we're kin.
21:19 - 21:21 Hey, Huu. How you been?
21:21 - 21:26 You know, scared some folks, swung some vines... The usual.
21:26 - 21:28 Huu?
21:31 - 21:33 How you like that possum-chicken?
21:33 - 21:35 Tastes just like arctic hen.
21:36 - 21:38 So why were you guys so interested in eating Appa?
21:38 - 21:41 You've got plenty of those big things wandering around.
21:41 - 21:43 You want me to eat ol' Slim?
21:43 - 21:46 He's like a member of the family.
21:46 - 21:47 Nice Slim.
21:47 - 21:49 Ah!
21:50 - 21:52 Oh, he don't eat no bugs.
21:52 - 21:54 That's people food.
21:54 - 21:56 Where'd you say you was from?
21:56 - 21:57 The South Pole.
21:57 - 22:00 Didn't know there was waterbenders anywhere but here.
22:00 - 22:02 They got a nice swamp there, do they?
22:02 - 22:04 No, it's all ice and snow.
22:05 - 22:07 Hmm, no wonder you left.
22:07 - 22:09 Well, I hope you realize now
22:09 - 22:11 that nothing strange was going on here.
22:12 - 22:14 Just a bunch of greasy people living in a swamp.
22:14 - 22:16 What about the visions?
22:16 - 22:18 I told you, we were hungry.
22:18 - 22:20 I'm eating a giant bug.
22:22 - 22:23 Mmm-ugh.
22:24 - 22:27 But what about when the tree showed me where Appa and Momo were?
22:27 - 22:29 That's Avatar stuff, that doesn't count.
22:29 - 22:31 The only thing I can't figure out
22:31 - 22:33 is how you made the tornado that sucked us down.
22:33 - 22:35 I can't do anything like that.
22:35 - 22:38 I just bend the water in the plants.
22:39 - 22:41 Well, no accounting for weather.
22:41 - 22:44 Still, there's absolutely nothing mysterious about the swamp.
22:59 - 23:01 Who's there?
23:04 - 23:05 Whoa!
23:05 - 23:06 Ugh...
