Trivia

The black and white hei-bái spirit in this episode is aptly named because "hei" is the Chinese word for black and "bái" is white. See more »

Goofs

At the very end of this episode we can see a crescent moon. However, in the end of the next episode, which happens only a day later, the moon is full. Of course, on the real Earth such a quick change is impossible, but this is only one of many curiosities of the fictional world of Avatar, where a lot of physically and astronomically impossible things occur. In fact, such a quick change in moon phases is possible even in our reality, if the moon is close enough to the planet. For example, the Martian moon Phobos goes through the full phase cycle in about 20 hours. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Katara: Those clouds look so soft, don't they? Like you could just jump down and you'd land in a big, soft, cottony heap.
Sokka: Maybe you should give it a try.
Katara: You're hilarious.
Aang: I'll try it.
[Aang jumps off Appa laughing, falls through the clouds, flies around and lands back on Appa, all wet]
Aang: Turns out clouds are made of water.

The introduction of spirits here is very intriguing. It adds a whole new and exciting element to the show.

We get two kidnappings! One in the spirit world and one in the material world, forming the main plot and the subplot respectively.

We get so many great moments with Uncle Iroh, he's adorable. I continue to love that we have such an endearing "villain".
