Fire Lord Ozai: [to young Prince Zuko in a flashback] You *will* learn respect. And suffering will be your teacher.
Katara: Well, we better smoothly fly ourselves to a market, 'cause we're out of food.
Sokka: Guys, wait. This was in my dream. We shouldn't go to the market.
Katara: What happened in your dream?
Sokka: [in a frightened, dramatic voice] Food eats people.
Sokka: Also, Momo could talk.
Sokka: You said some very unkind things.
[Sokka and the fisherman are out in the storm]
Sokka: [frightened] I'm too young to die!
Fisherman: I'm not, but I still don't wanna!
Fisherman: Boy with tattoos?
[Fisherman turns and looks at Aang]
Fisherman: Airbender tattoos. Well, I'll be a hog monkey's uncle. You're the Avatar, ain't ya?
Katara: That's right.
Fisherman: Well, don't be so smiley about it. The Avatar disappeared for a hundred years! You turned your back on the world.
Katara: Don't yell at him. Aang would never turn his back on anyone.
Fisherman: Oh, he wouldn't, huh? Then I guess I must've imagined the last hundred years of war and suffering.
Monk Gyatso: Normally, we would have told you of your identity when you turned 16, but there are troubling signs. Storm clouds are gathering.
Senior Monk: I fear that war may be upon us, young Avatar.
Monk Gyatso: We need you, Aang.
General: [In a flashback] The Earth Kingdom defenses are concentrated here, a dangerous battalion of their strongest Earthbenders and fiercest warriors. So, I am recommending the 41st division.
Old General: But the 41st is entirely new recruits. How do you expect them to defeat a powerful Earth Kingdom battalion?
General: [Coldly] I don't. They'll be used as a distraction while we mount an attack from the rear. What better to use as bait then fresh meat?
Prince Zuko: You can't sacrifice an entire division like that! Those soldiers love and defend our nation. How can you betray them?
Uncle Iroh: [Cut to the present] Zuko was right, you see, but it was not his place to speak out, and there were dire consequences.
Dour Monk: You're playing games with him? The Avatar should be training.
Monk Gyatso: Aang has already trained enough for today.
Dour Monk: Time is short. Come with me, I must test you on some high level techniques.
Monk Gyatso: No. As long as I am his guardian, I will decide when he trains *and* when he gets his butt kicked at Pai Cho.
Monk Gyatso: All I want is what is best for *him*.
Senior Monk: But what we *need* is what's best for the world. You and Aang must be separated. The Avatar will be sent away to the Eastern Air Temple to complete his training.
Aang: How could they do that to me? They wanted to take away everything I knew and everyone I loved!
Katara: You're being too hard on yourself. Even if you did run away, I think it was meant to be. If you had stayed, you would've been killed along with all the other Airbenders.
Aang: You don't know that.
Katara: I know it's meant to be this way. The world needs you now. You give people hope.
Lieutenant: So that's why he's so obsessed. Capturing the Avatar is the only chance he has of things returning to normal.
Uncle Iroh: Things will never return to normal. But the important thing is, the Avatar gives Zuko hope.
Fisherman's Wife: [about Sokka and her husband] They haven't returned. They should have been back by now. And this storm is becoming a typhoon. They're caught out at sea.
Aang: [Standing, resolute] I'm going to find them.
Katara: I'm going with you.
Fisherman's Wife: I'm staying here!
Sokka: [about Aang and Katara] Hey, they left without saying goodbye.
Fisherman: You're friends ain't too polite, are they?
Sokka: I know! This one time I was...
Fisherman: [Handing Sokka a box] Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Get below deck.
Katara: You seem to be having a lot of nightmares lately, you wanna tell me about it?
Aang: I think I just need some rest.
Sokka: [Sits up, excited] You guys want to hear about my dream?
[Silence, as Katara looks annoyed]
Sokka: That's ok, I didn't wanna talk about it anyway.
