Quotes

Korra: Can you believe Hiroshi? "The Avatar's on the run". I'm not running from anyone! Let's go back up there and knock some heads; they'll never know what hit 'em.

Mako: Relax. General Iroh's coming with an entire fleet of battleships. Then Amon will be the one who's running.

Korra: I hate this "being patient" stuff.

Hobo: Honored to oblige. My associates and I heartily oppose Amon's so-called "equalist" policies. We got benders and non-benders living together down here, but do you see us fighting? No siree; we've figured out how to harmoniously co-exist.

Bolin: You are a wise and noble hobo. Mmmm. This is the best-tasting street gruel I've ever had. Seriously!

Hobo: I culled it from the finest dumpsters the city has to offer!

Korra: It's so crazy. A few months ago I was in the South Pole practicing for my firebending test, and now I'm in the middle of an all-out war.

Mako: I know, we didn't even know each other then. And now, I can't imagine my life without you in it. You're the most loyal, brave and selfless person I've ever known.

Korra: I think you're pretty incredible too, but... you already knew that. I should probably try to get some sleep.

Mako: Me too. Goodnight.

Korra: Goodnight.

General Iroh: Hmm... Amon had to know we were coming. So why aren't we meeting any resistance?

Hobo: And who is the recipient of this top secret message?

General Iroh: Commander Bumi. Second division of the United Forces.

Korra: Tenzin's brother?

General Iroh: Yes, bit of a wild man, but the bravest commander you'll ever meet.

Korra: I'm not waiting for him to hunt me down. My gut's telling me it's time to end this- on my terms.

General Iroh: Korra, this is not a mission you should be handling alone.

Mako: She won't be. I'm going with you.

Korra: You don't have to do that.

Mako: Yes I do.

General Iroh: Hmm... My grandfather would respect the Avatar's instinct. So will I.

Tarrlok: I'm Amon's brother. Amon is from the Northern Water Tribe. He's a waterbender and a bloodbender, just like I was.

Korra: What?

Mako: Did you know this all along?

Tarrlok: No, not until after he captured me.

Yakone: Tarrlok, you'd better shape up or you'll be out here in the cold all night until you get it right.

Young Tarrlok: I'm trying, but...

Yakone: Try harder! Your brother was never this sloppy.

Young Noatak: Dad, he'll get it. He just needs time.

Yakone: Don't talk back to me, ever!

Young Tarrlok: What's bloodbending?

Yakone: The most powerful and feared form of bending in the world. It was declared illegal thanks to that coward, Katara. Our family has the strongest line of bloodbenders in history. You boys have this power inside of you, and I will teach you to master it.

Young Noatak: What happened to your bending, dad?

Yakone: The Avatar stole it from me. That's why I brought you out here, to learn your destiny. You two will become bloodbenders of the highest order. When the time is right, you will claim Republic City and you will destroy the Avatar. You must avenge me. That is your purpose in life.

Tarrlok: A few years later, my father taught us to bloodbend anytime, without the need of the full moon. We practiced constantly, and I hated every minute of it. I had no stomach for manipulating helpless animals. My brother, however, seemed to revel in this newfound power. He was a prodigy, mastering my father's psychic bloodbending technique by the time he was fourteen.

Tarrlok - Age 11: No, I won't do it.

Yakone: Bloodbend your brother, Tarrlok!

Tarrlok - Age 11: That felt awful. I don't want to do that to anyone. I never want to bloodbend again.

Noatak - Age 14: What're you gonna do about it? You're the weak one. You always say bloodbending is the most powerful thing in the world, but it isn't. The Avatar is. He took your bending away. What could be more powerful than that?

Yakone: I made you what you are. You're mine.

Noatak - Age 14: We're your sons, not your tools of revenge. Let's go. We can run away from him. Forever.

Tarrlok - Age 11: Run away? But what about mom? We can't just leave her.

Noatak - Age 14: He was right about you. You are a weakling.

Tarrlok - Age 11: Noatak! Don't leave! Please! Noatak!

Tarrlok: My father and I searched for days, but we never found a sign of Noatak. We thought he perished in that storm. My mother was never the same after the loss of my brother My father stopped training me. With Noatak gone, his hopes for revenge withered. And he passed away, a few years later.

Korra: That's... one of the saddest stories I've ever heard.

Tarrlok: Avatar Korra. I am truly sorry for all that I did to you. I thought I was better than my father, but his ghost still shaped me. I became a soldier of revenge, just like he wanted me to be. And so did my brother. The revolution may be built on a lie, but I think Amon truly believes bending is the source of all evil in the world.

Korra: This whole time, Amon has been one step ahead of us. But finally we have the advantage. We know the truth about him. If we expose him as a bender in front of all his supporters...

Mako: At the rally.

Korra: ...we could take away his true power!

Mako: And undermine this whole revolution!

Korra: We can't just leave him here.

Tarrlok: Go. Amon can't know anyone spoke with me. Defeat him. Put an end to this sad story.

Hiroshi Sato: It is a glorious day, my Equalist brothers and sisters! Amon has torn down the tyrannical bending government! He has declared bending illegal and he has the Avatar on the run. Our great leader has a vision for the future. One day soon, bending will no longer exist and we will live in a world where everyone is finally equal! The United Forces are on their way right now to try and stop that dream. But we will prevail!
