0:03 - 0:04 Water...
0:04 - 0:06 Earth...
0:07 - 0:08 Fire...
0:09 - 0:11 Air.
0:11 - 0:12 Long ago...
0:12 - 0:14 The four nations lived together in harmony.
0:15 - 0:19 Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
0:20 - 0:23 Only the Avatar, master of all four elements could stop them.
0:24 - 0:25 But when the world needed him most
0:25 - 0:27 he vanished.
0:28 - 0:31 100 years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar
0:31 - 0:33 an airbender named Aang.
0:33 - 0:35 And although his airbending skills were great
0:36 - 0:37 he has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone.
0:37 - 0:39 Oof.
0:39 - 0:43 But I believe Aang can save the world.
0:51 - 0:53 I am proud of you, prince Zuko.
0:53 - 0:56 I am proud because when your loyalty was tested
0:56 - 0:58 by your treacherous uncle
0:59 - 1:00 you did the right thing
1:00 - 1:02 and captured the traitor.
1:02 - 1:05 Why did you tell Father that I was the one who killed the Avatar?
1:05 - 1:07 Please, Zuko...
1:07 - 1:09 What ulterior motive could I have
1:09 - 1:13 Unless somehow the Avatar was actually alive?
1:13 - 1:15 All that glory would suddenly turn to shame.
1:59 - 2:00 Who's there?
2:12 - 2:14 I think I see a cave below.
2:14 - 2:17 Shh... Keep quiet.
2:23 - 2:26 Great job with the cloud camo, but next time...
2:26 - 2:28 Let's disguise ourselves as the kind of cloud
2:28 - 2:30 who knows how to keep its mouth shut.
2:30 - 2:34 Yeah, we wouldn't want a bird to hear us chatting up there and turn us in.
2:34 - 2:37 Hey, we're in enemy territory.
2:37 - 2:39 Those are enemy birds.
2:55 - 2:56 Well, this is it.
2:56 - 2:58 This is how we'll be living until the invasion begins.
2:59 - 3:01 Hiding in cave after cave...
3:01 - 3:04 After cave after cave...
3:04 - 3:07 Sokka, we don't need to become cave people.
3:07 - 3:09 What we need is some new clothes.
3:10 - 3:12 Yeah, blending in is better than hiding out.
3:12 - 3:14 If we get Fire Nation disguises
3:14 - 3:17 we'll be just as safe as we would be hiding in a cave.
3:17 - 3:19 Plus, they have real food out there.
3:19 - 3:21 Does anyone wanna sit in the dirt and eat cave-hoppers?
3:29 - 3:32 Looks like we got outvoted, sport.
3:32 - 3:34 Let's get some new clothes.
3:36 - 3:38 I don't know about this.
3:38 - 3:39 These clothes belong to somebody.
3:39 - 3:42 I call the silk robe.
3:44 - 3:47 But if it's essential to our survival
3:47 - 3:49 then I call the suit.
4:02 - 4:04 Ta-dah... Normal kid.
4:04 - 4:07 Hmm... I should probably wear shoes
4:08 - 4:10 But then I won't be able to see as well.
4:10 - 4:12 Sorry shoes...
4:15 - 4:19 Finally, a stylish shoe for the blind earthbender.
4:20 - 4:21 How do I look?
4:25 - 4:28 Uh, your mom's necklace.
4:28 - 4:30 Oh... Oh, yeah.
4:31 - 4:33 I guess it's pretty obviously Water Tribe, isn't it?
4:50 - 4:53 I used to visit my friend Kuzon here 100 years ago.
4:53 - 4:56 So everyone just follow my lead and stay cool.
4:56 - 4:58 Or as they say in the Fire Nation
4:58 - 5:01 "Stay flamin"'.
5:01 - 5:04 Greetings, my good Hotman.
5:04 - 5:05 Oh, hi...
5:05 - 5:08 I guess?
5:08 - 5:10 Oh, we're going to a meat place?
5:10 - 5:13 Come on, Aang, everyone here eats meat...
5:13 - 5:14 Even the meat.
5:17 - 5:18 You guys go ahead.
5:18 - 5:20 I'll just get some lettuce out of the garbage.
5:25 - 5:27 Hotman, Hotman.
5:27 - 5:29 Hotman.
5:29 - 5:30 Hotman, Hotman.
5:31 - 5:33 It's over, we caught you.
5:33 - 5:34 Who me?
5:34 - 5:37 It couldn't be more obvious that you don't belong here.
5:38 - 5:39 Next time you play hooky
5:39 - 5:42 You might want to take off your school uniform.
5:43 - 5:45 Ah!
5:55 - 5:56 Oh...
5:56 - 5:59 Is this a new mind ready for molding?
5:59 - 6:00 That's right.
6:00 - 6:02 Let the molding begin.
6:02 - 6:04 Wait a minute.
6:04 - 6:06 You're not from the Fire Nation.
6:09 - 6:11 Clearly you're from the colonies.
6:12 - 6:15 Yeah, the colonies, of course.
6:15 - 6:18 The Fire Nation colonies in the Earth Kingdom.
6:18 - 6:20 Your etiquette is terrible.
6:20 - 6:22 In the homeland, we bow to our elders...
6:23 - 6:26 Like so.
6:26 - 6:27 Sorry ma'am.
6:33 - 6:36 And we don't wear head coverings indoors.
6:36 - 6:38 Um, I have a scar.
6:38 - 6:40 It's really embarrassing.
6:40 - 6:41 Very well.
6:41 - 6:43 What is your name?
6:43 - 6:47 Or should we just call you mannerless colony slob?
6:48 - 6:49 Just "slob" is fine.
6:50 - 6:52 Or, uh... Kuzon.
7:05 - 7:07 We made it through the day, Momo...
7:07 - 7:08 And it was pretty fun.
7:09 - 7:11 Don't let the headmaster catch you with that monkey.
7:11 - 7:13 What monkey?
7:13 - 7:15 Don't worry, I'm not a tattletale.
7:15 - 7:16 My name's On Ji.
7:16 - 7:18 I like your headband, by the way.
7:20 - 7:22 On ji, you don't have to baby-sit the new kid.
7:22 - 7:24 Wow.
7:24 - 7:27 You must be one of those popular kids I've been hearing about.
7:27 - 7:28 That's right.
7:28 - 7:29 Now listen, friend...
7:29 - 7:31 I know you're from the colonies
7:31 - 7:32 so I'll say this slowly.
7:32 - 7:36 On Ji is my girlfriend.
7:36 - 7:38 Don't forget it.
7:44 - 7:46 It was nice meeting you.
7:46 - 7:47 I don't believe it.
7:47 - 7:48 He didn't beat you up.
7:48 - 7:50 Not even a little.
7:50 - 7:51 I guess I'm just lucky.
7:51 - 7:53 We were on our way to play hide and explode.
7:53 - 7:54 You wanna come?
7:55 - 7:56 I'd love to.
8:01 - 8:04 Where have you been?
8:04 - 8:05 We've been worried sick.
8:05 - 8:07 I got invited to play with some kids after school.
8:09 - 8:10 After what?
8:11 - 8:13 I enrolled in a Fire Nation school
8:13 - 8:14 And I'm going back tomorrow.
8:14 - 8:17 Enrolled in what?
8:26 - 8:27 You again?
8:27 - 8:29 Stop where you are.
8:30 - 8:32 Prince Zuko?
8:33 - 8:34 Ah!
8:35 - 8:36 I'm going in for a visit.
8:36 - 8:38 You're gonna stand guard here
8:38 - 8:41 and no one is going to know about this.
8:53 - 8:56 Uncle... It's me.
9:07 - 9:11 Aang, I'm trying to be mature and not immediately shoot down your idea.
9:11 - 9:14 But it sounds... Really terrible.
9:14 - 9:16 Yeah, we got our outfits.
9:16 - 9:18 What do you need to go to school for?
9:18 - 9:20 Every minute I'm in that classroom
9:20 - 9:22 I'm learning new things about the Fire Nation.
9:22 - 9:24 I already have a picture of Fire Lord, Ozai.
9:25 - 9:27 And here's one that I made out of noodles.
9:27 - 9:29 Impressive, I admit.
9:29 - 9:31 But I still think it's too dangerous.
9:31 - 9:35 I guess we'll never find out about the secret river, then.
9:35 - 9:38 It goes right to the Fire Lord's palace.
9:38 - 9:41 We were supposed to learn about it in class tomorrow...
9:41 - 9:45 Hmm... I am a fan of secret rivers.
9:46 - 9:48 Fine, let's stay a few more days.
9:48 - 9:50 Flamey-O, Hotman.
9:52 - 9:55 Flamey-O? Um-um.
9:57 - 9:59 You brought this on yourself, you know.
9:59 - 10:01 We could have returned together.
10:01 - 10:02 You could have been a hero.
10:04 - 10:06 You had no right to judge me, Uncle.
10:07 - 10:09 I did what I had to do in Ba Sing Se
10:10 - 10:11 and you're a fool for not joining me.
10:13 - 10:17 You're not gonna say anything?
10:17 - 10:18 Oh!
10:20 - 10:22 You're a crazy old man.
10:22 - 10:24 You're crazy, and if you weren't in jail
10:24 - 10:27 you'd be sleeping in a gutter.
10:32 - 10:34 Good morning, class.
10:36 - 10:37 Recite the Fire Nation oath.
10:38 - 10:41 My life, I give to my country.
10:41 - 10:42 With my hands, I fight for Fire Lord...
10:42 - 10:44 Fire Lord...
10:44 - 10:46 Forefathers...
10:46 - 10:48 With my mind, I seek ways to better my country
10:48 - 10:50 and with my feet...
10:50 - 10:51 Firebenders...
10:51 - 10:53 Fire Lord.
10:53 - 10:55 Wha, bah, blah, blah.
11:00 - 11:04 Since it's obviously hilarious to mock our national oath
11:04 - 11:07 we'll begin with a pop quiz on our great march of civilization.
11:10 - 11:12 Question one.
11:12 - 11:15 What year did Fire Lord Sozin battle the Air Nation army?
11:18 - 11:19 Kuzon?
11:19 - 11:21 Is that a trick question?
11:21 - 11:24 The air nomads didn't have a formal military.
11:24 - 11:28 Sozin defeated them by ambush.
11:29 - 11:30 Well, I don't know how you could
11:30 - 11:32 possibly know more than our national history book
11:32 - 11:35 unless you were there a hundred years ago.
11:35 - 11:37 I'll just write down my best guess.
11:50 - 11:52 Kuzon?
11:53 - 11:57 I know, I'm a terrible tsungi hornist.
11:57 - 11:58 No, child.
11:58 - 12:00 That hullabaloo going on with your feet.
12:00 - 12:02 Is that a nervous disorder?
12:02 - 12:05 I was just dancing.
12:05 - 12:07 You do dances here in the homeland, right?
12:07 - 12:09 Not really, no.
12:09 - 12:13 Dancing is not conducive to a proper learning environment.
12:13 - 12:16 Young people must have rigid discipline and order.
12:16 - 12:18 But what about expressing yourself?
12:18 - 12:21 I know sometimes we're so moved by our love for our nation
12:21 - 12:25 that we can't control our own bodies.
12:25 - 12:27 If you must
12:27 - 12:31 you may march in place quietly next time the urge hits you.
12:46 - 12:49 Oh, hi, Kuzon.
12:49 - 12:51 I really liked that crazy dance you were doing.
12:52 - 12:53 Thanks, On Ji.
12:53 - 12:54 I could show it to you again if you'd like.
12:54 - 12:55 Ah!
12:56 - 12:57 What'd you say, colony trash?
12:57 - 12:59 You're gonna show her something?
12:59 - 13:01 Just some dance movements.
13:01 - 13:03 Nobody shows my On Ji anything
13:03 - 13:05 Especially movement.
13:17 - 13:18 Ah!
13:19 - 13:20 Ha!
13:21 - 13:22 Yah!
13:22 - 13:23 Ah.
13:34 - 13:37 Picking fights on your second day?
13:37 - 13:39 We need to have a conference to discuss your punishment.
13:39 - 13:41 Bring your parents to my office after school.
13:41 - 13:43 Parents, but...
13:43 - 13:44 Don't be late.
13:53 - 13:56 Thank you for coming
13:56 - 13:57 Mr. And Mrs...
13:57 - 13:59 Fire... Wang Fire.
13:59 - 14:02 This is my wife, Sapphire.
14:02 - 14:04 Sapphire Fire, nice to meet you.
14:04 - 14:06 Mr. And Mrs. Fire...
14:06 - 14:09 Your son has been enrolled here for two days
14:09 - 14:10 and he's already causing problems.
14:11 - 14:12 He's argued with his history teacher
14:12 - 14:14 disrupted music class
14:14 - 14:15 and roughed up my star pupil.
14:16 - 14:17 My goodness.
14:17 - 14:19 That doesn't sound like our Kuzon.
14:19 - 14:21 That's what any mother would say, ma'am.
14:21 - 14:23 Nonetheless, you're forewarned.
14:23 - 14:25 If he acts up one more time
14:25 - 14:27 I'll have him sent to reform school...
14:27 - 14:30 By which I mean the coal mines.
14:30 - 14:31 Are we clear?
14:31 - 14:33 Don't you worry, Mr. Headmaster
14:33 - 14:36 I'll straighten this boy out something fierce.
14:36 - 14:37 Young man, as son as we get home,
14:37 - 14:40 you're gonna get the punishment of a lifetime.
14:40 - 14:42 That's what I like to hear.
14:48 - 14:50 Orange is such an awful color.
14:52 - 14:54 You're so beautiful when you hate the world.
14:54 - 14:56 I don't hate you.
14:56 - 14:58 I don't hate you, too.
15:01 - 15:04 Zuko, could I have a word with you?
15:04 - 15:07 Can't you see we're busy?
15:07 - 15:11 Oh, Mai, Ty Lee needs your help untangling her braid.
15:11 - 15:14 Sounds pretty serious.
15:19 - 15:23 So I hear you've been to visit your Uncle Fatso in the prison tower.
15:24 - 15:26 That guard told you.
15:26 - 15:29 No, you did... Just now.
15:29 - 15:32 OK, you caught me.
15:32 - 15:34 What is it that you want, Azula.
15:34 - 15:36 Actually, nothing.
15:36 - 15:39 Believe it or not, I'm looking out for you.
15:39 - 15:41 If people find out you've been to see Uncle
15:41 - 15:44 they'll think you're plotting with him.
15:44 - 15:47 Just be careful dum-dum.
15:51 - 15:52 That settles it.
15:52 - 15:54 No more school for you, young man.
15:54 - 15:55 I'm not ready to leave.
15:56 - 15:58 I'm having fun for once
15:58 - 16:00 Just being a normal kid.
16:00 - 16:02 You don't know what it's like, Sokka.
16:02 - 16:04 You get to be normal all the time.
16:04 - 16:06 Ha, ha.
16:06 - 16:09 Listen, guys, those kids at school are the future of the Fire Nation.
16:09 - 16:11 If we wanna change this place for the better
16:12 - 16:14 We need to show them a little taste of freedom.
16:14 - 16:18 What could you possibly do for a country of depraved little fire monsters?
16:18 - 16:21 I'm gonna throw them a secret dance party.
16:21 - 16:23 Go to your room.
16:34 - 16:36 I can't believe we're having a dance party.
16:36 - 16:38 It seems so... Silly.
16:38 - 16:40 Don't think of it as a dance party
16:40 - 16:43 But as a cultural event celebrating the art of fancy footwork.
16:46 - 16:47 They're coming.
16:47 - 16:49 Everyone stop bending.
16:49 - 16:51 Sorry, buddy.
16:51 - 16:53 You should probably wait out back.
16:56 - 16:59 I know, you've got fancier feet than anybody...
16:59 - 17:00 And six of 'em.
17:09 - 17:11 Ladies and gentlemen.
17:11 - 17:14 The Flamey-Os!
17:14 - 17:18 Yeah, this ought to get everybody moving.
17:20 - 17:23 Now what do we do?
17:23 - 17:25 This is when you start dancing.
17:25 - 17:28 I don't think my parents want me dancing in a cave.
17:28 - 17:32 Yeah, what if someone finds out?
17:32 - 17:33 Oh, boy.
17:33 - 17:34 Listen, guys...
17:35 - 17:37 Dancing isn't something you think about.
17:37 - 17:39 It's a form of self-expression
17:39 - 17:41 that no one can ever take away from you.
17:41 - 17:45 Maybe it was different in the colonies, Kuzon, but we don't do that here.
17:45 - 17:46 Sure you do.
17:46 - 17:48 You have for generations.
17:48 - 17:51 It just so happens that I know several classic Fire Nation dances.
17:51 - 17:53 A hundred years ago
17:53 - 17:55 this was known as "The Phoenix Flight."
17:55 - 17:57 Ooh... Wow.
17:57 - 18:00 And this was the "Camelephant Strut".
18:09 - 18:12 Who knew Twinkle Toes could dance?
18:15 - 18:17 I brought you some komodo-chicken.
18:18 - 18:19 I know you don't care for it
18:19 - 18:22 but I figure it beats prison food.
I admit it.
18:23 - 18:25 I have everything I always wanted
18:25 - 18:28 but it's not at all how I thought it would be.
18:28 - 18:30 The truth is
18:30 - 18:32 I need your advice.
18:32 - 18:35 I think the Avatar is still alive.
18:36 - 18:37 I know he's out there.
18:38 - 18:40 I'm losing my mind.
18:40 - 18:44 Please, Uncle, I'm so confused, I need your help.
18:46 - 18:47 Forget it.
18:47 - 18:48 I'll solve this myself.
18:49 - 18:50 Waste away in here for all I care.
19:09 - 19:11 And this is how they do it in the ballrooms of Ba Sing Se.
19:18 - 19:20 Wow, they look pretty good together.
19:20 - 19:23 Eh, if that's what you like.
19:25 - 19:26 Yeah, that's it.
19:26 - 19:29 That's the sound of happy feet.
19:33 - 19:35 All right, go with that.
19:35 - 19:36 Everybody, freestyle.
19:54 - 19:55 I don't know, Aang.
19:55 - 19:58 These shoes aren't really right for dancing
19:58 - 20:00 and I'm not sure that I know how to...
20:00 - 20:01 Take my hand.
20:01 - 20:02 OK.
20:24 - 20:25 Aang, everyone's watching.
20:26 - 20:27 Don't worry about them.
20:27 - 20:29 It's just you and me right now.
20:56 - 20:58 Wow.
21:13 - 21:16 It is a dancing party.
21:16 - 21:18 You did the right thing by telling me, Hide.
21:18 - 21:20 Anytime, Headmaster, sir.
21:21 - 21:23 This is incredible.
21:23 - 21:25 It's like my inhibitions just disappear.
21:31 - 21:34 OK, they're back again.
21:34 - 21:35 He's the one we want.
21:35 - 21:38 The boy with the headband.
21:38 - 21:39 Uh-oh.
21:45 - 21:46 Got ya.
21:46 - 21:47 Looking for me?
21:49 - 21:50 That's not the one.
21:50 - 21:52 He's here somewhere.
21:52 - 21:53 Don't let him leave the cave.
21:58 - 21:59 Yes?
22:04 - 22:05 Hi there. How we doing?
22:13 - 22:14 Looking for someone?
22:16 - 22:17 Who are you looking for?
22:17 - 22:18 Do you need something?
22:19 - 22:20 Over here.
22:33 - 22:36 Stop that.
22:36 - 22:37 Stop that.
22:40 - 22:42 We're safe, Sokka.
22:42 - 22:43 You can take off the mustache, now.
22:44 - 22:45 Oh, no, I can't.
22:45 - 22:48 It's permanently glued to my skin.
22:48 - 22:50 Way to go, dancy pants.
22:50 - 22:53 I think you really did help those kids.
22:53 - 22:54 You taught them to be free.
22:54 - 22:55 I don't know.
22:55 - 22:57 It was just a dance party, that's all.
22:57 - 23:00 Well, that was some dance party, Aang.
23:00 - 23:02 Mwah.
23:03 - 23:04 Flamey-O, sir...
23:05 - 23:06 Flamey-O.
23:20 - 23:22 You're sure you weren't followed?
23:22 - 23:24 I've heard about you.
23:24 - 23:27 They say you're good at what you do
23:27 - 23:29 and even better at keeping secrets.
23:29 - 23:31 The Avatar's alive.
23:32 - 23:34 I want you to find him
23:34 - 23:36 and end him.
