0:02 - 0:03 Water.
0:04 - 0:06 Earth.
0:06 - 0:07 Fire.
0:08 - 0:10 Air.
0:11 - 0:15 Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
0:15 - 0:18 Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
0:19 - 0:22 Only the Avatar, master of all four elements,
0:22 - 0:23 could stop them.
0:23 - 0:26 But when the world needed him most, he vanished.
0:27 - 0:29 A hundred years passed, and my brother and I discovered
0:29 - 0:32 the new Avatar, 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!
0:38 - 0:42 But I believe Aang can save the world.
0:50 - 0:52 Sokka's your name, right?
0:52 - 0:55 My favorite prisoner used to mention you all the time.
0:55 - 0:58 She was convinced you were going to come rescue her.
0:58 - 1:01 Of course, you never came, and she gave up on you.
1:02 - 1:05 Where is Suki?
1:06 - 1:07 How are we all gonna escape?
1:07 - 1:10 We're not. You kids have to leave.
1:10 - 1:12 You have to escape on Appa together.
1:12 - 1:13 Goodbye, Dad.
1:13 - 1:16 We won't be apart for too long this time. I promise.
1:26 - 1:27 No one can make tea like Uncle.
1:27 - 1:29 But, hopefully, I learned a thing or two.
1:29 - 1:32 Would you like to hear Uncle's favorite tea joke?
1:32 - 1:33 Sure. AANG: I like jokes.
1:33 - 1:34 Bring it!
1:35 - 1:37 Okay, well, I can't remember how it starts,
1:38 - 1:41 but the punchline is "Leaf me alone. I'm bushed!"
1:46 - 1:49 Well, it's funnier when Uncle tells it.
1:49 - 1:50 Right.
1:50 - 1:52 Maybe that's because he remembers the whole thing.
1:59 - 2:01 It's nice to get a chance to relax a little.
2:01 - 2:03 It hardly ever happens.
2:08 - 2:10 Hey, can I talk to you for a second?
2:16 - 2:18 So what's up?
2:18 - 2:21 If someone was captured by the Fire Nation,
2:21 - 2:22 where would they be taken?
2:22 - 2:24 What do you mean? Who was captured?
2:24 - 2:28 When the invasion plan failed, some of our troops were taken.
2:28 - 2:30 I just want to know where they might be.
2:30 - 2:31 I can't tell you.
2:31 - 2:33 What? Why not?
2:33 - 2:36 Trust me. Knowing will just make you feel worse.
2:37 - 2:40 It's my dad. He was captured, too.
2:40 - 2:42 I need to know what I put him through.
2:42 - 2:45 It's not good, Sokka. Please.
2:46 - 2:49 My guess is they were taken to the Boiling Rock.
2:49 - 2:50 What's that?
2:50 - 2:53 The highest-security prison in the Fire Nation.
2:53 - 2:57 It's on an island in the middle of the boiling lake.
2:57 - 3:00 It's inescapable. So where is this place?
3:00 - 3:02 Why do you need to know? What are you planning?
3:02 - 3:03 Nothing.
3:04 - 3:06 Boy, you're so paranoid.
3:06 - 3:09 It's in the middle of a volcano
3:09 - 3:11 between here and the Fire Nation.
3:11 - 3:14 You guys actually flew right past it on the way here.
3:14 - 3:16 Thanks, Zuko.
3:16 - 3:19 Just knowing makes me feel better.
3:19 - 3:21 Yeah, I'm sure it does.
3:43 - 3:44 Shh!
3:47 - 3:49 Not up to anything, huh?
3:49 - 3:50 Ahh!
3:52 - 3:54 Fine, you caught me.
3:54 - 3:56 I'm gonna rescue my dad. You happy now?
3:56 - 3:58 I'm never happy.
3:58 - 4:02 Look, I have to do this. The invasion plan was my idea.
4:02 - 4:05 It was my decision to stay when things were going wrong.
4:05 - 4:08 It's my mistake, and it's my job to fix it.
4:08 - 4:12 I have to regain my honor. You can't stop me, Zuko.
4:13 - 4:17 You need to regain your honor? Believe me, I get it.
4:17 - 4:18 I'm going with you.
4:18 - 4:21 No! I have to do this alone.
4:21 - 4:24 How are you going to get there? On Appa?
4:24 - 4:27 Last time I checked, prisons don't have bison daycares.
4:30 - 4:31 We'll take my war balloon.
4:47 - 4:48 What does it say?
4:48 - 4:50 "Need meat. Gone fishing.
4:50 - 4:52 "Back in a few days. Sokka and Zuko."
4:53 - 4:55 "One more thing.
4:55 - 4:57 "Aang, practice your firebending while I'm gone.
4:57 - 5:00 "Do 20 sets of fire fists and 10 hop squats
5:00 - 5:02 "every time you hear a badger frog croak.
5:02 - 5:03 "Zuko."
5:05 - 5:08 Nobody else has homework.
5:11 - 5:15 One hop squat, two hop squat, three hop squat, four hop squat...
5:29 - 5:30 Pretty clouds.
5:30 - 5:32 Yeah, fluffy.
5:37 - 5:38 What?
5:38 - 5:41 What? Oh, I didn't say anything.
5:42 - 5:45 You know, a friend of mine actually designed these war balloons.
5:45 - 5:46 No kidding.
5:46 - 5:50 Yup. A balloon, but for war.
5:50 - 5:53 If there's one thing my dad's good at, it's war.
5:53 - 5:55 Yeah, it seems to run in the family.
5:55 - 5:56 Hey, hold on.
5:56 - 5:58 Not everyone in my family is like that.
5:58 - 6:00 I know, I know. You've changed.
6:01 - 6:03 I meant my uncle.
6:03 - 6:05 He was more of a father to me.
6:05 - 6:07 And I really let him down.
6:08 - 6:10 I think your uncle would be proud of you.
6:10 - 6:12 Leaving your home to come help us?
6:12 - 6:13 That's hard.
6:14 - 6:16 It wasn't that hard.
6:16 - 6:19 Really? You didn't leave behind anyone you cared about?
6:19 - 6:23 Well, I did have a girlfriend, Mai.
6:23 - 6:25 That gloomy girl who sighs a lot?
6:25 - 6:26 Yeah.
6:28 - 6:30 Everyone in the Fire Nation thinks I'm a traitor.
6:30 - 6:32 I couldn't drag her into it.
6:34 - 6:36 My first girlfriend turned into the moon.
6:37 - 6:39 That's rough, buddy.
6:52 - 6:54 There it is. Huh? Huh?
6:54 - 6:57 There's plenty of steam to keep us covered.
6:57 - 6:59 As long as we're quiet, we should be able to navigate
6:59 - 7:00 through it without being caught.
7:20 - 7:21 We're going down.
7:21 - 7:22 The balloon's not working anymore.
7:24 - 7:26 The air outside is just as hot as the air inside,
7:26 - 7:28 so we can't fly.
7:28 - 7:29 Whoa!
7:29 - 7:31 So what are we supposed to do?
7:31 - 7:33 I don't know. Crash landing?
7:50 - 7:52 How are we gonna get off the island
7:52 - 7:53 if the balloon won't work?
7:53 - 7:55 We'll figure something out.
7:55 - 7:57 I suspected it might be a one-way ticket.
7:57 - 8:00 You knew this would happen and you wanted to come anyway?
8:00 - 8:03 My dad might be here. I had to come and see.
8:03 - 8:05 Uncle always said I never thought things through.
8:06 - 8:07 But this?
8:07 - 8:09 This is just crazy!
8:09 - 8:12 Hey, I never wanted you to come along in the first place.
8:12 - 8:15 And for the record, I always think things through.
8:15 - 8:17 But my plans haven't exactly worked.
8:17 - 8:19 So this time, I'm playing it by ear.
8:19 - 8:20 So there!
8:20 - 8:22 Aah!
8:25 - 8:27 What are you doing?
8:27 - 8:30 It doesn't work anyway, and we don't want anyone to find it.
8:30 - 8:33 I hope you know what you're doing.
8:33 - 8:35 There's no turning back now.
8:47 - 8:49 I hope these disguises work.
8:49 - 8:52 We just need to lay low and find my dad as soon as possible.
8:55 - 8:57 Guards! There's a scuffle in the yard.
8:57 - 8:58 Come on!
9:06 - 9:09 I didn't do anything. I'm going back to my cell.
9:11 - 9:13 Stop right there, Chit Sang!
9:15 - 9:17 We can't blow our cover.
9:19 - 9:21 I've had it with your unruly behavior.
9:22 - 9:23 What did I do?
9:23 - 9:26 He wants to know what he did. Isn't that cute?
9:30 - 9:33 Uh, yeah, very cute, sir. Super cute.
9:33 - 9:37 You didn't bow down when I walked by, Chit Sang.
9:37 - 9:39 What? That's not a prison rule.
9:39 - 9:40 Do it!
9:41 - 9:42 Make me.
9:59 - 10:03 Firebending is prohibited. You're goin' in the cooler.
10:04 - 10:07 You! Help me take him in.
10:07 - 10:09 Meet back here in an hour.
10:20 - 10:22 The warden will deal with you soon.
10:27 - 10:29 Can you believe this guy?
10:29 - 10:31 Prisoners! Am I right?
10:31 - 10:33 Tell me about it.
10:37 - 10:39 Ha-ha! Hey, new guy!
10:39 - 10:41 I know it's the rule to have your helmet on at all times,
10:41 - 10:43 but this is the lounge.
10:43 - 10:44 Relax!
10:44 - 10:46 But what if there's an incident?
10:46 - 10:48 If I'm not prepared, someone could strike me on the head.
10:54 - 10:56 Give it a week. He'll loosen up.
10:57 - 10:58 Can the new guy ask you veterans
10:58 - 11:00 a few questions about the prison?
11:00 - 11:03 No, you can't date the female guards.
11:03 - 11:06 Trust me, you don't want to.
11:07 - 11:09 No, that's not it.
11:09 - 11:11 The Boiling Rock.
11:11 - 11:14 It holds the Fire Nation's most dangerous criminals, right?
11:15 - 11:17 So what about war prisoners?
11:38 - 11:40 It sure looks cold in there.
11:40 - 11:42 That's why we call it the cooler.
11:42 - 11:44 He won't be firebending in there.
11:45 - 11:47 It's the warden! Look alive!
11:52 - 11:57 So, Chit Sang, I hear you used firebending to try to escape.
11:57 - 11:58 You should know better.
11:58 - 12:00 I wasn't trying to escape.
12:01 - 12:03 He's lying! I saw him with my own eyes.
12:04 - 12:07 No one has ever, ever escaped from here.
12:07 - 12:10 I'd sooner jump in the boiling lake myself
12:10 - 12:12 than let that record fall.
12:12 - 12:13 Don't forget it.
12:14 - 12:15 Now go back to your shivering.
12:24 - 12:28 Hey, there, fellow guard. How goes it?
12:28 - 12:29 Zuko?
12:29 - 12:30 Shh!
12:30 - 12:33 Listen, I asked around the lounge.
12:33 - 12:35 There are no Water Tribe prisoners.
12:35 - 12:37 I'm afraid your father's not here.
12:37 - 12:38 What? Are you sure?
12:38 - 12:40 Did you double check?
12:40 - 12:42 Yeah, I'm sure.
12:42 - 12:44 No. No!
12:45 - 12:46 I'm really sorry, Sokka.
12:47 - 12:49 So we came all this way for nothing?
12:49 - 12:51 I failed... again.
12:52 - 12:54 Ah, what would Uncle say?
12:56 - 12:59 Sometimes clouds have two sides, a dark and light,
13:00 - 13:02 and a silver lining in between.
13:02 - 13:03 It's like a silver sandwich.
13:04 - 13:09 So when life seems hard, take a bite out of the silver sandwich.
13:11 - 13:13 Maybe we haven't failed after all!
13:13 - 13:16 That's the spirit! I can't believe that worked.
13:16 - 13:18 I didn't even know what I was saying.
13:18 - 13:20 No, what you said made no sense at all.
13:20 - 13:21 But look!
13:22 - 13:23 It's Suki!
13:23 - 13:25 Prisoners! Back in your cells!
13:42 - 13:45 What is it? Did I do something wrong?
13:45 - 13:46 You mean you don't recognize me?
13:47 - 13:49 You people all look the same to me.
13:49 - 13:51 Oh? Then maybe you'll recognize this.
13:56 - 13:59 Sokka! It's you!
14:03 - 14:05 The other Kyoshi Warriors, are they here?
14:06 - 14:07 No. I don't know where they are.
14:08 - 14:10 They locked me in here, because I'm the leader.
14:10 - 14:13 Well, you won't be here for long. I'm busting you out.
14:13 - 14:17 I'm so glad to see you, Sokka. I knew you'd come.
14:26 - 14:29 Excuse me. I need to get into that cell.
14:29 - 14:30 No, you can't go in there.
14:31 - 14:33 The lights are out.
14:33 - 14:34 The prisoner could sneak up on you.
14:36 - 14:38 Step aside, fool!
14:38 - 14:40 Hey, hey, what are you doing?
14:49 - 14:51 Guard, help! I think he's an imposter!
14:51 - 14:53 Aah! Arrest him!
15:02 - 15:04 Get him off me and arrest him!
15:10 - 15:12 You're under arrest!
15:13 - 15:15 Don't worry. I'll figure it out.
15:24 - 15:26 Well, well, well.
15:27 - 15:31 I never thought I'd find you in here, Prince Zuko.
15:31 - 15:33 How did you know who I am?
15:33 - 15:37 How could I not? You broke my niece's heart.
15:38 - 15:40 You're Mai's uncle?
15:40 - 15:42 I never meant to hurt her.
15:42 - 15:43 Quiet!
15:43 - 15:48 You're my special prisoner now. And you best behave.
15:48 - 15:51 If these criminals found out who you are,
15:51 - 15:55 the traitor prince who let his nation down,
15:55 - 15:57 why, they'd tear you to shreds.
15:57 - 15:59 So what's in it for you?
15:59 - 16:02 Why don't you just tell my father and collect a reward?
16:02 - 16:06 Oh, in due time, believe me. I intend to collect.
16:17 - 16:19 Oh, good. You guys have met.
16:19 - 16:21 Actually, we met a long time ago.
16:21 - 16:23 We did?
16:23 - 16:26 Yeah, you kinda burned down my village.
16:27 - 16:31 Oh, sorry about that. Nice to see you again.
16:35 - 16:37 So listen, I think I have an escape plan.
16:38 - 16:40 I checked out the coolers again.
16:40 - 16:43 The whole point of them is to keep firebenders contained, right?
16:43 - 16:44 Yeah.
16:44 - 16:47 So they're completely insulated and sealed
16:47 - 16:48 to keep the cold in.
16:48 - 16:50 Well, to keep the cold in,
16:50 - 16:52 it also has to keep the heat out, right?
16:52 - 16:54 Just get to the point, Sokka.
16:54 - 16:55 It's a perfect boat
16:56 - 16:57 for getting through the boiling water.
16:59 - 17:01 The cooler as a boat? Are you sure?
17:01 - 17:03 I'm telling you, it'll work.
17:05 - 17:07 I walked around the perimeter.
17:07 - 17:10 There's a blind spot between two guard towers.
17:10 - 17:12 It's the perfect launching point.
17:13 - 17:15 I already tested it out.
17:15 - 17:17 We'll roll the cooler into the water
17:17 - 17:21 and just float with the current. It'll take us straight across.
17:21 - 17:23 As long as we don't make a sound, no one will notice.
17:23 - 17:26 And bing, bang, boom, we're home free!
17:26 - 17:28 But how are you gonna get the cooler out?
17:28 - 17:31 Yeah, how are you gonna get the cooler out?
17:33 - 17:36 What? We didn't... We didn't say that!
17:36 - 17:38 Yeah, you heard wrong.
17:38 - 17:41 I heard you hatching an escape plan, and I want in.
17:41 - 17:43 There's nothing to get in on.
17:43 - 17:47 Yeah, the only thing we're hatching is... an egg?
17:49 - 17:51 Okay, well, I come with you,
17:51 - 17:53 or the warden hears about this egg, too.
17:53 - 17:55 I guess we have no choice.
17:55 - 17:57 Okay, you're in.
17:57 - 18:00 Now, first we need someone to unbolt the cooler
18:00 - 18:02 from the inside.
18:03 - 18:05 Oh, I can get you inside.
18:13 - 18:14 Hey, what are you? Stupid?
18:15 - 18:16 Watch where you're going!
18:18 - 18:20 Hey, you watch who you're shoving!
18:23 - 18:25 I think you mean whom I'm shoving.
18:36 - 18:38 I need backup over here!
18:43 - 18:46 No firebending. Into the cooler!
19:07 - 19:08 I can take you back to your cell
19:08 - 19:10 if you've learned your lesson.
19:13 - 19:16 Yes, I have. Completely.
19:17 - 19:19 I got Suki and Chit Sang
19:19 - 19:21 out of their cells a few minutes ago.
19:21 - 19:23 They'll be waiting for us at the shore.
19:23 - 19:25 Someone's coming!
19:25 - 19:28 Yeah, new arrivals coming in at dawn.
19:28 - 19:32 Anybody interesting? Nah, just the usual.
19:32 - 19:35 Some robbers, couple of traitors, some war prisoners.
19:35 - 19:37 Though I did hear there might be a pirate.
19:37 - 19:38 No foolin'!
19:38 - 19:41 War prisoners. It could be your father.
19:42 - 19:43 I know.
19:43 - 19:46 Well, what should we do?
19:46 - 19:48 Are we going ahead with the plan or are we waiting another night?
19:48 - 19:50 I don't know.
19:50 - 19:52 Is it right for me to risk Suki's freedom,
19:52 - 19:54 all of our freedom,
19:54 - 19:56 on the slim chance that my dad is gonna show up?
19:56 - 19:57 It's your call, Sokka.
20:08 - 20:10 Took you guys long enough.
20:10 - 20:12 This here's my girl and my best buddy.
20:12 - 20:13 They're coming, too.
20:13 - 20:15 Fine. Everybody in the cooler.
20:15 - 20:16 Let's go.
20:25 - 20:26 Are you sure you wanna go?
20:26 - 20:29 You're the one who said you wanted to redeem yourself,
20:29 - 20:30 redeem your honor.
20:30 - 20:32 Rescuing your dad is your chance.
20:33 - 20:34 Your dad?
20:35 - 20:37 If I had just cut my losses at the invasion,
20:38 - 20:40 maybe we wouldn't be in this mess.
20:40 - 20:41 Maybe sometimes it's just better
20:41 - 20:43 to call it quits before you fail.
20:43 - 20:45 No, it's not.
20:45 - 20:47 Look, Sokka, you're going to fail a lot
20:47 - 20:48 before things work out.
20:48 - 20:50 That's supposed to make me feel better?
20:50 - 20:52 Even though you'll probably fail
20:52 - 20:54 over and over and over again...
20:54 - 20:58 Seriously, not helping. ...you have to try every time.
20:58 - 21:01 You can't quit because you're afraid you might fail.
21:01 - 21:04 Hey, if you two are done cuddling, can we get a move on?
21:05 - 21:07 No, I'm staying.
21:08 - 21:12 You guys go. You've been here long enough.
21:12 - 21:14 I'm not leaving without you, Sokka.
21:14 - 21:15 I'm staying, too.
21:15 - 21:17 Not me. I'm out.
21:17 - 21:18 Let's roll, baby.
21:20 - 21:23 We gave up our only chance of escaping.
21:23 - 21:26 I hope we haven't just made a huge mistake.
21:37 - 21:40 Ah, this current is so slow.
21:41 - 21:43 I can use this to paddle.
21:56 - 22:00 Guards, secure the perimeter and lock down the prisoners!
22:00 - 22:01 Now!
22:07 - 22:10 The plan failed! They're caught!
22:11 - 22:13 Get the fugitives and throw them in the cooler!
22:13 - 22:16 Uh, they are in a cooler, sir.
22:16 - 22:19 One that's bolted down and not floating in the water!
22:19 - 22:22 This is a lockdown! We have new prisoners arriving.
22:22 - 22:25 Everything must be completely secure.
22:38 - 22:40 The gondola's moving.
22:50 - 22:51 This is it.
22:56 - 22:59 If my dad's not there, we risked everything for nothing.
22:59 - 23:01 We had to.
23:02 - 23:03 Come on, come on!
23:07 - 23:08 Is that him?
23:08 - 23:11 My dad doesn't have a nose ring.
23:14 - 23:15 Where is he?
23:18 - 23:20 That's it? That can't be it.
23:20 - 23:22 I'm sorry, Sokka.
23:22 - 23:24 Oh, no!
23:24 - 23:27 Hey, you! Get off the gondola!
23:39 - 23:40 Dad.
