] Prince Zuko
: Lighten up. So dad wanted to meet with his advisors alone, without anyone else around. Don't take it personally. Prince Zuko
: Doing nothing is a waste of time. We're being sent away on a forced vacation. I feel like a child. Azula
: Lighten up. So Dad wants to meet with his advisors alone, without anyone else around. Don't take it personally.
: [after a game of volleyball
] Yes! We defeated you for all time! You will never rise from the ashes of your shame and humiliation!... Ah! that was fun.
: Come on, Ty Lee. You can't be this ignorant. Ty Lee
: What are you talking about? Azula
: Those boys only like you because you make it so easy for them. You're not a challenge. You're a tease. It's not like they actually care who you are.
: You were jealous of me? But you're the most beautiful, smartest, perfect girl in the world. Azula
: Well, you're right about all those things. But for some reason when I meet boys, they act as if I'm going to do something horrible to them. Ty Lee
: [Ty Lee chuckles
] But you probably would do something horrible to them. I'm sure they're just intimidated by you. Okay, look, if you want a boy to like you, just look at him and smile a lot and laugh at everything he says, even if it's not funny. Azula
: Well, that sounds really shallow and stupid. Ty Lee
: [Looks up grinning
] Let's try it. Ty Lee
: [in a deep voice, pretending to be a guy
] Hey there, sweet sugarcakes. How ya likin' this party?
[Azula laughs maniacally, all the party noises stop, and everyone stares at them
: Together, you and I will be the strongest couple in the entire world! We will dominate the Earth! Chan
: Uh... I got to go.
: Yes, I'm a circus freak. Go ahead and laugh all you want. You want to know why I joined the circus? Azula
: Here we go. Ty Lee
: Do you have any idea what my home life was like? Growing up with six sisters who looked *exactly* like me? It was like I didn't even have my own name. I joined the circus because I was scared of spending the rest of my life as part of a matched set. At least I'm different now. Circus freak is a compliment! Mai
: I guess that explains why you need ten boyfriends, too. Ty Lee
: I'm sorry, what? Mai
: Attention issues. You couldn't get enough attention when you were a kid, so you're trying to make up for it now.
: What do you want from me? You want a teary confession about how hard my childhood was? Well, it wasn't. I was a rich, only child who got anything I wanted... as long as I behaved... and sat still... and didn't speak unless spoken to. My mother said I had to keep out of trouble. We had my dad's political career to think about. Azula
: Well, that's it then. You had a controlling mother who had certain expectations, and if you strayed from them, you were shut down. That's why you're afraid to care about anything, and why you can't express yourself. Mai
: You want me to express myself? Leave me alone!
: That's a sharp outfit, Chan. Careful. You could puncture the hull of an empire-class Fire Nation battleship, leaving thousands to drown at sea, because it's so sharp.
: I thought I'd find you here. Prince Zuko
: Those summers we spent here seem so long ago. So much has changed. Azula
: Come down to the beach with me. Come on. This place is depressing.
: Calm down, you guys. This much negative energy is bad for your skin. You'll totally break out. Prince Zuko
: Bad skin? Normal teenagers worry about bad skin. I don't have that luxury. My father decided to teach me a permanent lesson on my face. Ty Lee
: Sorry, Zuko. I... Prince Zuko
: For so long I thought that if my Dad accepted me, I'd be happy. I'm back home now. My Dad talks to me. Ha! He even thinks I'm a hero. Everything should be perfect, right? I should be happy now, but I'm not! I'm angrier than ever and I don't know why! Azula
: There's a simple question you need to answer then. Who are you angry at? Prince Zuko
: No one. I'm just angry. Mai
: Yeah, who are you angry at, Zuko? Prince Zuko
: Everyone. I don't know. Azula
: Is it Dad? Prince Zuko
: No, no. Ty Lee
: Your uncle? Azula
: Me? Prince Zuko
: No, no, no, no! Mai
: Then who? Who are you angry at? Azula
: Answer the question, Zuko. Ty Lee
: Talk to us. Mai
: Come on. Answer the question. Azula
: Come on, answer it. Prince Zuko
: I'm angry at myself! Azula
: Why? Prince Zuko
: Because I'm confused. Because I'm not sure I know the difference between right and wrong anymore.
: I guess you wouldn't understand, would you, Azula? Because you're just *so* perfect. Azula
: Well, yes, I guess you're right. I don't have sob stories like all of you. I could sit here and complain how our mom liked Zuko more than me, but I don't really care. My own mother... thought I was a monster... She was right, of course, but it still hurt.
: You know what would make this trip *really* memorable?
[they all go back to Chan's House and when Chan answers the door
: We've got some gad news, Chan. Prince Zuko
: The party's over.
[then they proceed to trash the house
: We've done it, Zuko. It's taken a hundred years, but the Fire Nation has conquered Ba Sing Se. Prince Zuko
: I betrayed Uncle. Azula
: No, he betrayed you. Zuko, when you return home, Father will welcome you as a war hero. Prince Zuko
: But I don't have the Avatar. What if Father doesn't restore my honor? Azula
: He doesn't need to, Zuko. Today, you restored your own honor.
: [to the Dai Li
] This coup must be swift and decisive. The Earth King, and each of the five generals, must be taken out simulataneously. Long Feng has placed you in my command while we overthrow the government. If I sense any disloyalty, any hesitation, any weakness at all, I will snuff it out. That is all.
: Did I ever tell you how I got the nickname the Dragon of the West? Azula
: I'm not interested in a lengthy anecdote, Uncle. Uncle Iroh
: t's more of a demonstration, really.
[Iroh breaths fire
: [to Long Feng
] 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 of us is going to be bowing down. But I know, and you know.
[Azula sits on the throne
: Well? Long Feng
: [Bows, resigned
] You've beaten me at my own game. Azula
: Don't flatter yourself. You were never even a player.
: You're so dramatic. What, are you going to challenge me to an Agni Kai? Prince Zuko
: Yes. I challenge you. Azula
: [Smiles mockingly
] No, thanks.
: 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 have come to the crossroads of your destiny. It's time for you to choose. It's time for you to choose good. Azula
: [Bursts in and traps Iroh
] I expected this kind of treachery from Uncle. But Zuko, *Prince* Zuko, you're a lot of things, but you're not a traitor, are you? Prince Zuko
: Release him immediately. Azula
: It's not too late for you, Zuko. You can still redeem yourself. Uncle
: 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. Uncle
: Zuko, I am begging you. Look into your heart and see what it is that you truly want. Azula
: You are free to choose.
: [struggling to put her hair up
] All right, hair, it's time to face your doom.
[she slashes at her hair with scissors, then grins manically
: [appearing in the mirror
] What a shame. You always had such beautiful hair. Azula
: What are you doing here? Ursa
: I didn't want to miss my own daughter's coronation. Azula
: Don't pretend to act proud. I know what you really think of me. You think I'm a monster. Ursa
: I think you're confused. All your life, you've used fear to control people, like your friends, Mai and Ty Lee. Azula
] But what choice do I have? Trust is for fools. Fear is the only reliable way. Even you fear me. Ursa
] No, I love you, Azula, I do.
[Azula screams and hurls the brush at her mirror, breaking it; then collapses, sobbing
: Wait. You want to be Fire Lord? Fine. Let's settle this. Just you and me, brother. The showdown that was always meant to be: Agni Kai. Prince Zuko
: You're on! Katara
: What are you doing? She's playing you. She knows she can't take us both, so she's trying to separate us. Prince Zuko
: I know, but I can take her this time. Katara
: But even you admitted to your uncle that you would need help facing Azula. Prince Zuko
: There's something off about her. I can't explain it, but she's slipping, and this way, no one else has to get hurt.
: No lightning today? What's the matter, afraid I'll redirect it? Azula
: Oh, I'll show you lightning!
: My father asked you to come here and talk to me, didn't he? He thinks I can't handle the responsibility of being Fire Lord, but I will be the greatest leader in Fire Nation history. Lo
: I'm sure you will, but considering everything that's happened today... Li
: ...Perhaps it's best if you postpone your coronation. Azula
: What? Which one of you just said that?
[Li and Lo point to each other
: What a shame. There's only one way to resolve this. You two must duel each other. I order you to fight an Agni Kai. Lo
: But... We're not Firebenders. Azula
: All right, fine. Azula
: [Points to Li
] Lo, you're banished. Li, you can stay.
: [to Lo
] But I'm Li, so who's banished?
: By decree of Pheonix King Ozai, I now crown you Fire Lord... Azula
: What are you waiting for? Do it! Prince Zuko
: Sorry, but you're not going to become Fire Lord today. I am!
: I'm sorry it has to end this way, brother. Prince Zuko
: No you're not.
: Where's mom? Azula
: [almost happily
] No one knows. Oh, and last night, Grandpa passed away. Young Zuko
: Not funny, Azula. You're sick, and I want my knife back, now. Azula
: Who's going to make me... Mom?
: We *are* brother and sister. It's important for us to spend time together. Don't you think so, Mom?
: [voice over, in a letter
] "If the city is as magnificent as its wall, Ba Sing Se must be something to behold. I hope you all may see it someday, if we don't burn it to the ground first."
: [reading the letter
] "Until then, enjoy these gifts. For Zuko, a pearl dagger from the general who surrendered when we broke through the outer wall. Note the inscription and the superior craftsmanship." Young Zuko
: [Reading the inscription
] "Never give up without a fight." Ursa
: "And for Azula, a new friend. She wears the latest fashion for Earth Kingdom girls."
[as Ursa speaks, Azula picks up a doll wearing Earth Kingdom green. The Princess makes a face of disgust
: Yuck! If Uncle doesn't make it back from war, then dad would be next in line to be Fire Lord, wouldn't he? Ursa
: Azula, we don't speak that way. It would be awful if Uncle Iroh didn't return. And besides, Fire Lord Azulon is a picture of health. Young Zuko
: How would you like it if cousin Lu Ten wanted Dad to die? Azula
: I still think our dad would make a much better Fire Lord than his royal tea0loving kookiness.
[She holds out the doll and makes its head burst into flame
: Dad's going to kill you. Really, he is. Young Zuko
: Ha-ha, Azula, nice try. Young Azula
: Fine, don't believe me, but I heard everything. Grandfather said Dad's punishment should fit his crime. "You must know the pain of losing a first-born son, by sacrificing you own." Young Zuko
: Liar! Young Azula
: I'm only telling you for your own good. I know. Maybe you could find a nice Earth Kingdom family to adopt you. Young Zuko
: Stop it! You're lying. Dad would never do that to me. Ursa
: Your father would never do what to you? What is going on here? Young Azula
: I don't know. Ursa
: [to Azula
] It's time for a talk. Young Zuko
: Azula always lies. Azula always lies. Prince Zuko
: [as he wakes up
] Azula always lies.
: By the way, Uncle's coming home. Prince Zuko
: Does that mean we won the war? Azula
: No, it means Uncle's a quitter and a loser. Prince Zuko
: What are you talking about? Uncle's not a quitter. Azula
: Oh yes, he is. He found out his son died, and he just fell apart. A real general would stay and burn Ba Sing Se to the ground, not lose the battle and come home crying. Prince Zuko
: How do you know what he should do? He's probably just sad his only kid is gone... forever. Ursa
: Your father has requested an audience with Fire Lord Azulon. Best clothes, hurry up. Azula
: Fire Lord Azulon. Can't you just call him "Grandfather?" He's not exactly the powerful Fire Lord he used to be. Someone will probably end up taking his place soon. Ursa
: Young lady, not another word. What is wrong with that child?
: It's been a difficult week for me. My most trusted advisor, Long Feng, and his Dai Li agents, tried to take control of Ba Sing Se from me. Azula
: It's terrible when you can't trust the people who are closest to you.
: We have been presented with an extraordinary opportunity, girls. Ty Lee
: Mai finally gets to wear makeup that's not totally depressing?
: The key is the Dai Li. Whoever controls the Dai Li, controls Ba Sing Se.
: [Dressed as Kyoshi warriors
] I'm tired of wearing this girlie disguise. I don't know how anyone can fight in this. Ty Lee
: Maybe that's why it was so easy to beat the Kyoshi Warriors and take their clothes.
[Dai Lee agents eavesdropping
: How much longer do we have to serve the Earth King? If I have to clean up one more pile of bear poop, I'm going to throw up. Ty Lee
: Princess Azula promised we would go back to the Fire Nation as soon as we captured the Avatar. We just have to be patient. Mai
] Shush up. Do you want the whole palace to know we're Fire Nation? Ty Lee
[the Dai Li retreat and Azula appears
: Good work, girls.
[Glances up toward the roof
: I am sure the Dai Li will deliver the message.
: In my country, we exchange a pleasant "hello" before asking questions. Have you become uncivilized so soon, Zuzu? Prince Zuko
: Don't call me that!
: Princess, I'm afraid the tides will not allow us to bring the ship into port before nightfall. Azula
: I'm sorry, Captain, but I do not know much about the tides. Can you explain something to me? Captain
: Of course, your Highness. Azula
: Do the tides command this ship? Captain
: Um, 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? 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? 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.
: My brother and my uncle have disgraced the Fire Lord and brought shame on all of us. You may have mixed feelings about attacking members of the Royal Family. I understand. But I assure you, if you hesitate, I will not hesitate to bring you down. Dismissed.
: You lied to me! Azula
: Like I've never done that before.
: You're right. The royal procession is dead weight. If I want to catch my prey, I must be agile, nimble. I need a small, elite team. It's time to visit some old friends.
: What an exquisite performance. I can't wait to see how you'll top yourself tomorrow. Ty Lee
: I'm sorry, Azula, but unfortunately, there won't be a show tomorrow. Azula
: Really? Ty Lee
: The universe is giving me strong hints that it's time for a career change. I want to join you on your mission.
: Ooh, what kind of dangerous animals do you have? Circus Master
: Well, our circus boasts the most exotic assortment... Azula
: [Cutting him off
] Release them all.
: All right, you caught up with me. Now who are you and what do you want? Azula
: You mean you haven't guessed? You don't see the family resemblance? Here's a hint. Azula
: [covering one eye with her hand
] "I must find the Avatar to restore my honor."
[No reaction from Aang
: t's okay, you can laugh. It's funny.
: Do you really want to fight me?
[Zuko comes out of hiding
] Prince Zuko
: Yes, I really do.
: Well, look at this. Enemies and traitors all working together. I'm done. I know when I'm beaten. You got me. A princess surrenders with honor.
[when Iroh isn't looking she blasts him with blue fire
: I'm ready. I'm ready to face the Fire Lord.
[Opens the door and finds Azula sitting on the throne
: So, you are alive after all. I had a hunch that you survived. But it doesn't matter. I've known about the invasion for months.
: Where is he? Where's the Fire Lord? Azula
: Hmm, you mean I'm not good enough for you? You're hurting my feelings. Sokka
: Stop wasting our time and give us the information. You're powerless right now, so you're in no position to refuse. Toph
: And stick to the truth. I'll be able to tell if you're lying. Azula
: Are you sure? I'm a pretty good liar. I am a 400-foot0tall purple platypus bear with pink horns and silver wings. Toph
: ...Okay, you're good. I admit it.
[Toph encases Azula's body in an Earth prison
: But you really ought to consider telling me the truth anyway.
: Wait! Aang, Toph, stop attacking. Don't you see what she's doing? She's just playing with us. She's not even trying to win this fight. Azula
: Not true. I'm giving it my all. Toph
: You're trying to keep us here and waste all our time. Azula
: Um, right. I think your friend just said that, genius. And since you can't see, I should tell you, I'm rolling my eyes. Toph
: I'll roll your whole *head*! Sokka
: She's just baiting you again. Aang
: Okay, so what do we do, just ignore her? Sokka
: We don't have a choice. We just have to get out of here and find the Fire Lord on our own somehow. Azula
: It's a trap. Don't say I didn't warn you. Sokka
: Ignore! Azula
: So, Sokka's your name, right? My favorite prisoner used to mention you all the time. She was convinced you were going to come rescue her. Of course, you never came, and she gave up on you.
[Sokka yells, turns, and charages Azula
: [softly to herself
] Come and get it.
[Azula secretly readies a throwing star but Toph hears her and Earthbends to deflect it and trap Azula against the wall which allows Sokka to reach her
: [with barely controlled anger
] Where... is... Suki?
[after Mai helps Zuko and the others escape
: I never expected this from you... The thing I don't understand is, why? Why would you do it? You know the consequences. Mai
: I guess you just don't know people as well as you think you do. You miscalculated. I love Zuko more than I fear you. Azula
] No *you* miscalculated. You should have feared me more!
[they go into fighting stances; Ty Lee intervenes, hits Azula with her chi-blocking jabs; Azula gasps in shock and falls, immobilized
] Ty Lee
: [grabbing Mai
] Come on! Let's get out of here!
[the guards capture them
: You're both fools! Guard
: What shall we do with them, Princess? Azula
: Put them somewhere I'll never have to see their faces again and let them *rot*!
: [to the Warden about a suspect guard
] You're wasting your time. That's not one of them. Warden
: How do you know? Azula
: Because I'm a people person.
: [Pulling out their fans
] What do you want with us? Azula
: Who are you? The Avatar's fan girls. Ty Lee
: Oh, I get it. Good one, Azula.
: No Avatar, huh? Well, that's okay. Any friend of the Avatar is an *enemy* of mine.
: Wait. I need to ask you something. What do you remember about our Great-Grandfather's history? Azula
: Oh, Zuko, it's so strange how your mind works. Fire Lord Sozin began the war, of course. He spent his early years secretly preparing for it, but he was as patient as he was clever. He famously waited for the comet, later renamed Sozin's comet, and used its power to launch his full-scale invasion of the world. In the end, he died a very old and successful man. Prince Zuko
: But, how did you die? Azula
: Didn't you pay *any* attention in school, Zuko? He died peacefully, in his sleep. He was ancient.
: It's never too early for a sitting with the court painters, Zuko. Make sure he gets your good side.
: I've decided to lead the fleet of airships to Ba Sing Se alone. You will remain here in the Fire Nation. Azula
: But, I thought we were going to do this together? Fire Lord
: My decision is final. Azula
: You, you can't treat me like this! You can't treat me like Zuko!
] War Minister
: This drill is a feat of scientific ingenuity and raw, destructive power. Once it tunnels through the wall, our troops will storm their city. The Earth Kingdom will finally fall, and you can claim Ba Sing Se in the name of your father. Nothing can stop us. Ty Lee
: Hmm, what about those muscley guys down there? War Minister
: Please. The drill's metal shell is impervious to any Earthbending attack. Azula
: Oh, I'm sure it is, War Minister Ching, but just to be on the safe side... Mai and Ty Lee, take the Earthbenders out. Mai
: Finally, something to do.
: Please Zuko, what ulterior motive could I have? What could I possibly gain by letting you get all the glory for defeating the Avatar? Unless, somehow, the Avatar was actually alive. All that glory would suddenly turn to shame and foolishness. But, you said yourself, that was impossible. Sleep well, Zu-Zu.
] Earth King
: In our hour of need, it is with the highest honor that I welcome our esteemed allies, the Kyoshi warriors.
[Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee dressed as Kyoshi Warriors, bow
: We are the Earth King's Humble servants.
