Storyline

This episode focuses on the little events that each character does on his or her own in Ba Sing Se. It starts with Katara and Toph finally connecting with a girls' day out. Iroh helps different members of the community near his new home and ends his tale with a "special" picnic. Aang decides to help a zoo keeper with his animals. Sokka battles a poetry teacher in haiku in front of the all female class. Iroh accepts a date on Zuko's behalf. Zuko may have even enjoyed himself for once. And the tales end with Momo on a search for Appa, interrupted by a pack of stray cats that resemble tiny panthers. Written by LycoRogue

Trivia

Uncle Iroh's tale concludes in honor of Mako, who passed away during the production of the second season. See more »

Goofs

When Iroh plays the song for the crying boy, he strums his instrument like a guitar. The instrument he plays, however, looks like a traditional Chinese instrument that is played upright while sitting down, and is essentially too heavy to be carried like a guitar. However, in the purely fictional world of Avatar, there are many things which would be impossible or "wrong" in our reality. In this specific case, just because the instrument looks like a certain real Chinese one, doesn't make it the same one, if only because China doesn't even exist in this fictional world. See more »

Quotes

Sokka: That's right I'm Sokka. It's pronounnced with an "okka". Young ladies, I rocked ya!
[counting fingers realizing his last line had 6 syllables, not 5]
Security guard: Uh, that's one too many syllables there, bub.
[picks up Sokkan and throws him out]
Sokka: [hits the ground with a disgusted look on his face] Poetry.

Excellent character development
17 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode consisted of several vignettes giving us more insight into the main characters. Katara convinces Toph to go to a day spa. Uncle Iroh makes his way through town, on his way to commemorate a special day. Aang goes looking for Appa and ends up using his "way with animals" to help a zookeeper and his run-down zoo. Sokka wanders about and finds himself entangled in a haiku showdown. Zuko reluctantly goes on a date. Momo goes looking for Appa and makes friends with some (eventually) helpful cats.

I have loved Uncle Iroh pretty much from the start, and his segment was most excellent. We get to see more of the depth of his kindness, wisdom, humor, and humanity. The other stories were quite good too, but if the episode contained only the tale of Uncle Iroh, I would still give it a 10.
