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

The Cabbage Merchant can be seen selling cabbages during Aang's story, even though in Chapter 12 all of his cabbages were destroyed when he tried to bring them on board the ferry to Ba Sing Se. However, it wouldn't be impossible for him to get new ones since then. More importantly, the repeated destruction of his cabbages is a running gag throughout the series, and he always manages to get new ones, so, at most, this qualifies as a deliberate joke, not an error.

Quotes

Toph: One of the good things about being blind is that I don't have to waste my time worrying about appearances. I don't care what I look like. I'm not looking for anyone's approval. I know who I am.
Katara: That's what I really admire about you, Toph. You're so strong, and confident, and self-assured. And I know it doesn't matter but you're really pretty.
Toph: I am?
Katara: Yeah. You are.
Toph: I'd return the compliment, but I have no idea what you look like. Thank you, Katara.

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.
