0:03 - 0:04 Water...
0:04 - 0:06 Earth...
0:06 - 0:08 Fire...
0:08 - 0:10 Air.
0:10 - 0:12 Long ago...
0:12 - 0:14 The four nations lived together in harmony.
0:14 - 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 - 0:25 But when the world needed him most
0:25 - 0:27 he vanished.
0:27 - 0:30 A hundred 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 - 0:39 Oof.
0:39 - 0:42 But I believe Aang can save the world.
0:50 - 0:51 What about the invasion?
0:51 - 0:54 We'll join up with my dad and the invasion force
0:54 - 0:56 on the day of the eclipse.
0:56 - 0:58 Keep quiet.
0:58 - 1:01 We're in enemy territory.
1:01 - 1:04 What we need is some new clothes.
1:04 - 1:06 Yeah, blending in is better than hiding out.
1:06 - 1:08 If we get Fire Nation disguises
1:08 - 1:11 we'll be just as safe as we would be hiding in a cave.
1:11 - 1:13 Ta-da, normal kid.
1:14 - 1:15 How do I look?
1:30 - 1:32 Momo?
1:34 - 1:37 Oh, Momo?
1:37 - 1:39 Ah.
1:39 - 1:43 You found me, buddy.
1:43 - 1:45 Hey, guys, I think this river's polluted.
1:54 - 1:58 Well, that explains why I can't catch a fish around here.
1:58 - 2:02 Because normally my fishing skills are... Off the hook.
2:02 - 2:04 Get it, like a fishing hook?
2:04 - 2:07 Too bad your skills aren't on the hook.
2:11 - 2:15 It looks like we'll need to go somewhere else to get food.
2:15 - 2:17 Assuming that'll fit into Sokka's master schedule.
2:18 - 2:20 Hm... It's doable.
2:20 - 2:22 But that means only two potty breaks today.
2:22 - 2:25 Hey, maybe we can get food there.
2:30 - 2:32 Now you look just like a little hill with horns.
2:32 - 2:34 Bye, buddy.
2:37 - 2:40 I don't feel anything.
2:40 - 2:41 Where's this village?
2:41 - 2:43 It's in the middle of the river.
2:43 - 2:44 Sure is.
2:44 - 2:46 My name's Dock.
2:46 - 2:47 Mind if I ask who you are?
2:48 - 2:52 We're, um, from the Earth Kingdom colonies.
2:52 - 2:54 Wow, colonials.
2:54 - 2:56 Hop on, I'll give you a ride into town.
2:59 - 3:01 Why do you guys live on the river?
3:01 - 3:03 Because we're a fishing town.
3:03 - 3:06 At least that's how it was before the factory moved in.
3:06 - 3:09 Army makes their metal there.
3:09 - 3:12 Moved in a few years ago and started gunking up our river.
3:12 - 3:15 Now our little village is struggling to survive.
3:21 - 3:24 Thanks for the ride.
3:25 - 3:27 Look at this place.
3:27 - 3:29 It's so sad.
3:29 - 3:32 We have to do something to help.
3:32 - 3:34 No, we can't waste our time here.
3:34 - 3:37 We have a bigger mission that we need to stay focused on.
3:37 - 3:39 These people are on their own.
3:39 - 3:43 These people are starving, but you turn your back on them?
3:43 - 3:46 How can you be so cold and heartless?
3:46 - 3:49 I'm not turning my back, I'm just being realistic.
3:49 - 3:52 We can't go around helping every rinky-dink town we wander into.
3:52 - 3:55 We'll be helping them all by taking out the Fire Lord.
3:55 - 3:56 Hey, loudmouth...
3:57 - 3:59 Maybe we should be a little quieter
3:59 - 4:02 When we talk about taking out the Fire Lord.
4:02 - 4:04 Come on, Katara, be reasonable about this.
4:04 - 4:06 You know our mission has to come first.
4:06 - 4:08 I guess so.
4:08 - 4:10 Let's just get what we need and go.
4:17 - 4:19 Hey, Dock, you work here too?
4:19 - 4:21 I'm not Dock, I'm Shoe.
4:22 - 4:24 Dock's my brother.
4:24 - 4:25 But we just saw you.
4:25 - 4:27 You're even wearing the same clothes.
4:27 - 4:29 The only difference is your hat.
4:29 - 4:33 Dock works on the Docks, that's why they call him "Dock."
4:33 - 4:36 And I work in the shop, that's why they call me "Shoe."
4:36 - 4:37 I don't get it.
4:37 - 4:40 Me neither.
4:40 - 4:42 What can I get you?
4:43 - 4:45 Hey, I'll give you a special deal.
4:45 - 4:50 If you buy three fish, I'll throw in a clam for free.
4:52 - 4:55 We'll just take the fish.
4:55 - 4:59 Mind telling your brother we need a ride back to shore?
4:59 - 5:01 Hey, colonials.
5:01 - 5:03 My brother says you need a lift.
5:07 - 5:10 Can you spare some food?
5:10 - 5:13 I wish I could help more.
5:29 - 5:32 Our detour into town today has completely thrown off our schedule.
5:33 - 5:37 It's gonna take some serious finagling to get us back on track.
5:37 - 5:40 Finagle away, o schedule master.
5:40 - 5:41 Well, for starters, it looks like we'll
5:41 - 5:43 need to wake up 43 minutes earlier every day.
5:43 - 5:45 43 minutes?
5:46 - 5:48 Look, we only have a few weeks to get to
5:48 - 5:50 the Fire Lord in time for the invasion and the eclipse
5:50 - 5:52 which, by the way, only lasts for eight minutes.
5:52 - 5:54 And we just lost a whole day.
5:54 - 5:57 So if we want to make up the time and stay on schedule
5:57 - 5:58 we have to wake up early.
5:58 - 6:01 Well, I'm not waking up early.
6:01 - 6:04 Or we could just cut out all of our eating breaks.
6:04 - 6:06 What? No way. Forget it.
6:06 - 6:08 I got it, how's this?
6:08 - 6:11 From now on, we'll take food breaks and potty breaks
6:11 - 6:13 at the same time.
6:13 - 6:14 Ew.
6:14 - 6:16 Hey, it might be gross, but it's efficient.
6:16 - 6:19 Either way, we have to leave here first thing tomorrow morning.
6:28 - 6:29 What's the matter, Katara?
6:29 - 6:31 I think Appa's sick.
6:31 - 6:34 What, Appa's sick? That's awful.
6:34 - 6:37 Wow, Sokka, I didn't realize you cared so much.
6:37 - 6:39 Of course I care.
6:39 - 6:44 I might as well just throw our schedule away now.
6:44 - 6:49 And I'm concerned because my big, furry friend doesn't feel well.
6:49 - 6:50 He must've gotten sick
6:50 - 6:52 from being in the polluted water.
6:52 - 6:53 He doesn't look sick.
6:53 - 6:55 Are you OK, buddy?
6:57 - 6:59 His tongue is purple.
6:59 - 7:00 That can't be good.
7:00 - 7:02 Katara, can you heal him?
7:02 - 7:04 It looks like he needs some medicine.
7:04 - 7:07 Maybe we can find the right herbs in town.
7:11 - 7:15 Is it just me, or does this place seem different?
7:15 - 7:18 Yeah, are the people happier?
7:23 - 7:26 Hey, Shoe, what's going on with everyone today?
7:26 - 7:29 Ah, something amazing happened last night.
7:30 - 7:34 Food was delivered to our village by a mysterious and wonderful person.
7:34 - 7:36 The Painted Lady.
7:36 - 7:37 The painted who now?
7:37 - 7:39 The Painted Lady.
7:39 - 7:41 She's part of our town's lore.
7:42 - 7:43 They say she's a river spirit
7:43 - 7:46 who watches over our town in times of need.
7:46 - 7:48 I always thought she was just a legend.
7:48 - 7:51 Until now.
7:51 - 7:52 See, we don't need to help these people,
7:52 - 7:54 they already have someone to help them.
7:54 - 7:57 All we need is medicine for our sick friend.
7:57 - 7:58 Medicine?
7:58 - 8:02 Sorry, all the medicine we have goes to the factory.
8:02 - 8:05 That's why there's so many sick people in our village.
8:05 - 8:08 Looks like we need to stay another night so Appa can rest.
8:08 - 8:10 I guess you're right.
8:10 - 8:12 You got any more food to sell?
8:13 - 8:16 Would you like the one-headed fish or the two-headed fish?
8:16 - 8:19 Two-headed.
8:19 - 8:22 What, you get more for your money that way.
9:03 - 9:06 Thank you, Painted Lady.
9:18 - 9:20 Hi, Dock, is Shoe around?
9:20 - 9:24 Let me check...
9:25 - 9:27 Hey there, back again, are you?
9:27 - 9:29 We need more food.
9:29 - 9:33 Our friend is still sick and we can't leave until he's better.
9:33 - 9:35 Oh, well, that's too bad.
9:35 - 9:37 Maybe if you guys are lucky
9:37 - 9:39 the Painted Lady will visit you in the night
9:39 - 9:40 and heal your friend.
9:40 - 9:42 And maybe she'll cook us a midnight snack
9:43 - 9:44 and we'll all have a sing-along.
9:44 - 9:46 Yeah, maybe.
9:47 - 9:49 You know, last night she visited us again.
9:49 - 9:51 Healed most of our sick folks.
9:51 - 9:53 Is that why this place seems so festive?
9:53 - 9:57 Yep, it's all because of the Painted Lady.
9:57 - 10:01 Can you believe how much an entire village can be affected by one lady?
10:01 - 10:02 I mean, spirit?
10:03 - 10:04 Well, I hope she returns every night.
10:04 - 10:07 Otherwise this place would go right back to the way it was.
10:07 - 10:09 Why would you say that?
10:09 - 10:11 Look how much better off these people are.
10:11 - 10:14 Yeah, now, but without her, they wouldn't be able to fend for themselves.
10:14 - 10:16 If she really wanted to help
10:16 - 10:19 she would use her spirit magic to blow up that factory.
10:19 - 10:23 Ooh...
10:23 - 10:26 Spirit magic doesn't work that way, Sokka.
10:26 - 10:31 It's more like... Whoo...
10:31 - 10:34 Whoo...
11:04 - 11:07 What's the matter, buddy?
11:07 - 11:10 It's her.
11:10 - 11:12 Hello, Painted Lady spirit.
11:21 - 11:24 Excuse me, I don't mean to bother you
11:24 - 11:28 but my friend's sick and we're on kind of a tight schedule.
11:28 - 11:32 Wait, but I'm the great bridge between your world and mine.
11:39 - 11:41 I know Hei Bai, we're close personal friends.
11:54 - 11:55 Hey.
12:08 - 12:09 My name's Aang.
12:10 - 12:13 I'm the Avatar.
12:13 - 12:15 Well, hello, Avatar.
12:15 - 12:18 I wish I could talk, but I am very busy.
12:19 - 12:20 Yeah, me too.
12:20 - 12:23 I hate that.
12:23 - 12:25 You know, you're really pretty for a spirit.
12:25 - 12:27 I don't get to meet too many spirits,
12:27 - 12:30 but the ones I do meet... Not very attractive.
12:30 - 12:33 Thank you, but...
12:33 - 12:36 You seem familiar, too.
12:36 - 12:38 A lot of people say that.
12:38 - 12:41 No, you really seem familiar.
12:41 - 12:45 Look, I really should get going.
12:48 - 12:51 Katara?
12:51 - 12:52 Hi, Aang.
12:52 - 12:55 You're the Painted Lady? But how?
12:55 - 12:58 I wasn't at first, I was just trying to help the village.
12:58 - 13:00 But since everyone thought that's who I was anyway...
13:01 - 13:05 I guess I just kind of became her.
13:06 - 13:08 So you've been sneaking out at night?
13:08 - 13:10 Wait, is Appa even sick?
13:10 - 13:14 He might be sick of the purple berries I've been feeding him
13:14 - 13:16 but other than that, he's fine.
13:16 - 13:19 I can't believe you lied to everyone so you could help these people.
13:19 - 13:22 I'm sorry, I know I shouldn't have.
13:22 - 13:23 No, I think it's great.
13:23 - 13:26 You're like a secret hero.
13:26 - 13:28 Well, if you want to help...
13:28 - 13:32 There's one more thing I have to do.
13:41 - 13:43 You want to destroy this factory?
13:43 - 13:46 Yes, Sokka was just kidding, but he was right.
13:46 - 13:50 Getting rid of this factory is the only way to help these people permanently.
14:43 - 14:44 Ha-ha...
14:45 - 14:48 Shh, we don't want to wake Sokka.
14:48 - 14:50 Hi... Sokka.
14:50 - 14:53 We were just out on a morning walk.
14:53 - 14:55 Oh, really?
14:55 - 14:58 A morning walk?
15:01 - 15:03 I know you're the Painted Lady.
15:03 - 15:05 I know you've been sneaking out at night.
15:05 - 15:07 And I know you've been lying about Appa
15:07 - 15:09 and feeding him purple-izing-tongue berries.
15:09 - 15:12 Ah.
15:12 - 15:15 Katara, what you did put our whole mission in jeopardy.
15:15 - 15:19 We're leaving right now.
15:19 - 15:22 And how long did you know about this?
15:22 - 15:24 Hey, I just found out this morning.
15:46 - 15:47 What's going on?
15:47 - 15:50 Fire Nation soldiers are heading to the village.
15:50 - 15:51 What did you do?
15:51 - 15:53 I kind of destroyed their factory.
15:53 - 15:55 You what?
15:55 - 15:58 It was your idea. I was joking.
15:58 - 16:01 I also said to use spirit magic and made funny noises.
16:01 - 16:03 Did you even think this through?
16:04 - 16:05 The army's gonna blame the villagers.
16:05 - 16:07 They're headed there right now to get revenge.
16:07 - 16:09 Well, what was I supposed to do?
16:09 - 16:11 Leave, do nothing.
16:12 - 16:13 No.
16:13 - 16:16 I will never, ever turn my back on people who need me.
16:17 - 16:20 I'm going down to the village
16:20 - 16:23 And I am gonna do whatever I can.
16:27 - 16:28 Wait.
16:28 - 16:30 I'm coming too.
16:30 - 16:32 I thought you didn't want to help.
16:32 - 16:36 You need me, and I will never turn my back on you.
16:36 - 16:40 Sokka, you really do have a heart.
16:40 - 16:44 He really does have a heart, doesn't he?
16:57 - 16:59 I thought we could live as neighbors in peace
16:59 - 17:01 but I guess I was wrong.
17:01 - 17:03 You steal our food, our medicine...
17:04 - 17:06 And then you destroy our factory.
17:06 - 17:08 We didn't do any of that.
17:08 - 17:11 Yeah, the Painted Lady brought us food.
17:11 - 17:14 She's the one that healed our sick, not your medicine.
17:14 - 17:19 Oh, right, the mysterious Painted Lady did it.
17:19 - 17:24 And I suppose she drew the army emblem on your containers, too.
17:26 - 17:29 This is a town of thieves and liars.
17:33 - 17:37 Where's your Painted Lady now?
17:37 - 17:40 We're going to cure the world of this wretched village.
18:00 - 18:04 Light it again.
18:04 - 18:07 Look at that, where's it coming from?
18:07 - 18:09 I don't know.
18:09 - 18:11 Something strange is going on.
18:14 - 18:15 It's the Painted Lady.
18:15 - 18:17 She's coming.
18:17 - 18:19 There is no Painted Lady.
18:39 - 18:42 What is that sound? Maybe it is her.
19:00 - 19:01 Do something.
19:13 - 19:16 Stand your ground.
19:36 - 19:39 I'll take care of you myself.
20:10 - 20:13 Leave this village and never come back.
20:43 - 20:44 I knew you'd come.
20:44 - 20:46 Thank you.
20:46 - 20:48 Painted Lady, you're the best.
20:48 - 20:51 Me and my brothers really owe you a lot.
20:52 - 20:55 Hey, wait a minute, I know you.
20:56 - 20:58 You're not the Painted Lady.
20:58 - 21:01 You're that colonial girl.
21:01 - 21:04 Yeah, you're the lady that gave me a fish.
21:04 - 21:06 You've been tricking us.
21:06 - 21:09 You're a waterbender.
21:09 - 21:10 She's a waterbender.
21:11 - 21:13 How dare you act like our Painted Lady?
21:16 - 21:19 Maybe she is a waterbender, but she was just trying to help you.
21:19 - 21:22 Because of her, that factory won't be polluting your river
21:22 - 21:24 and the army is gone.
21:24 - 21:26 You should be down on your knees thanking her.
21:26 - 21:29 Sokka, it's OK.
21:29 - 21:32 I shouldn't have acted like someone I wasn't
21:32 - 21:33 and I shouldn't have tricked you.
21:34 - 21:36 But I felt like I had to do something.
21:36 - 21:40 It doesn't matter if the Painted Lady is real or not.
21:40 - 21:43 Because your problems are real, and this river is real.
21:44 - 21:46 You can't wait around for someone to help you.
21:46 - 21:48 You have to help yourself.
21:49 - 21:52 She's right, but what should we do?
21:52 - 21:55 Maybe we can clean the river.
21:55 - 21:59 Yeah, we can clean the river.
22:02 - 22:04 Thank you.
22:04 - 22:07 You know, you're not so bad for a waterbender.
22:07 - 22:10 You wouldn't mind keeping that a secret, by the way, would you?
22:10 - 22:12 No problem.
22:12 - 22:14 Keeping my mouth shut is a personal specialty.
22:14 - 22:17 My brother Shoe, on the other hand, ho, he's a blabbermouth.
22:19 - 22:21 So, Dock, are you gonna help us clean?
22:21 - 22:24 No, ma'am, I'm going to get my other brother, Bushi.
22:24 - 22:29 He loves cleaning rivers.
22:29 - 22:30 All right, I'm Bushi.
22:31 - 22:32 Let's get some river cleaning done.
22:33 - 22:35 Aha, I knew it.
22:35 - 22:37 I knew you were the same guy.
22:37 - 22:39 You're the shop owner and the boat guy.
22:39 - 22:42 Oh, you must be talking about my brothers, Dock and Shoe.
22:42 - 22:44 No, I just saw you.
22:44 - 22:46 You switched hats and called yourself a different name.
22:46 - 22:49 Oh, you know who does that?
22:49 - 22:51 My brother Dock.
22:51 - 22:53 He's crazy.
23:33 - 23:35 Thank you.
