Quotes: Avatar: The Last Airbender

Book 1

Aang: "...Will you go penguin sledding with me?"

Aang: "Everything freezes in there!"

Katara: "Let us leave!"
Bumi: "Lettuce Leaf?"

Aang: "Don't worry, Sokka - where we're going, you won't need any pants!"

Suki: "All right. But you have to follow all of our traditions."
Sokka: "Of course!"
Suki: "[Smiling.] And I mean all of them."
Sokka: "[Embarrassed looking down at his wardrobe; He is wearing make up too.] Do I really have to wear this?! It feels a little... [Lower his arms in defeat.] girly.
Suki: "It's a warrior's uniform, you should be proud. [Closeup of Sokka, the camera pans down to reveal the entire uniform close by.] The silk threads symbolizes the brave blood that flows through our veins. The gold insignia represents the honor of the warrior's heart.
[Cut back to a broader shot, Sokka looking more comfortable wearing "a dress." Aang passes by the front door looking in with interest while Sokka proudly erects himself.]
Sokka: [Proudly.] Bravery and honor.
Aang: [Popping in; smiling broadly.] Hey Sokka! [Sokka winces upon hearing his name and slants his eyes and shoulders in embarrassment.] Nice dress! [Run off laughing.]

Sokka: "I'm sorry, I treated you like a girl when I should be treating you like a warrior..."
Suki: "I am a warrior. But I'm a girl too."

Sokka: "I don't care what Aunt Wu says, YOU HAVE TO TAKE A BATH SOMETIME!!"

Zuko: "If you find them I'll consider the damage to my ship paid for."
June: "Heh. Forget it."
Iroh: "Plus we'll pay your weight in gold!"
June: "Make it your weight in gold and we got a deal."

Zuko: "For the last time, I'm not playing the tsungi horn."

Warden: Tell me exactly what you saw.
Officer: Well, Sir, it looked like a flying bison.
Warden: What?
Guard: It was a giant flying buffalo, Sir, with an empty saddle.
Warden: Which was it? A buffalo or a bison?
Officer: Uh, I'm not sure what the difference is, but that's not really the point is it, Sir?
Warden (angry): I'll decide what the point is, fool!
(Warden throws the man overboard)
Warden: You! Wake up the Captain. Search the entire rig!
Guard: Sir?
Warden: What!?
Guard: That was the Captain you just threw overboard, sir.
Warden: Then wake up someone I haven't thrown overboard and search the rig! There's something going on here and I don't like it.

Book 2

Soldier: [The soldier is pouring tea in a cup. Drops white food item into the teapot.] This rare chi-enhancing tea is a natural stimulant. In an ordinary warrior, it improves strength and energy ten-fold. In you, it may induce the Avatar State.
Aang: Ten-fold energy, huh? [Aang drinks the tea, causing his eyebrows to twitch slightly. The camera pans downward to the same scene where Aang is riding rapidly on an air scooter, hyper from the energy boost.] [Quickly in a high-pitched voice.] Is it working? Is it working? I can't tell! Somebody tell me if I'm in the Avatar State 'cause I don't have a good view of myself! Am I talking too loud?
Sokka: [Sitting on the floor, tired out and annoyed by Aang's actions.] I guess he could talk the Fire Lord to death. [Aang hits a pillar and falls backward.]

Oracle: "You are wearing a ceremonial dress from each of the four bending nations! [...] Water! Earth! Fire! Air! FOUR ELEMENTS TOGETHER AS ONE!..."
Aang: "[Annoyed.]...This is just mud!"
Oracle: [Quizically.] So... do you feel anything?
Aang raises his finger, catching everyone's interest, only to sneeze, causing mud to fly everyehere, coating Fong, Katara and Sokka.

Chong: (sings) "Two lovers, forbidden from one another / A war divides their people / And a mountain divide them apart... (speaks) Yeah, I forget the next couple lines, but then it goes (sings) SECRET TUNNEL! SECRET TUNNEL! Through the mountain, secret secret secret secret TUNNEL!"
Chong: "Hey, I remember the last line now!" (plays) "And diiiieeee...."

Katara: (To Sokka) "Why's your forehead all red?"
Chong: "Nobody react to what I'm about to tell you... I think that kid might be the Avatar."
Sokka: (facepalm, explaining the mark)

("Avatar Day" opens with Sokka losing his boomerang in the Rough Rhinos attack)
Sokka: "I feel like I've lost a part of my identity.. it's like, if you lost your arrow, or Katara lost her... hair-loopies."
Shopkeeper: "Here you go, ponytail-guy."
Sokka: (sigh) "I used to be boomerang-guy..."
(Near the end of the episode, Sokka finds his boomerang)
Sokka: "Boomerang!! You do always come back!"

The Boulder: "The Boulder feels conflicted about fighting a young, blind girl."
Toph: "Sounds to me like you're scared, Boulder!"
The Boulder: "The Boulder is over his conflicted feelings and is ready to bury you IN A ROCK-A-LANCHE!!"
Toph: "Whenever you're ready, The Pebble!"

Katara: "You've been hallucinating off cactus juice all day, and now you just lick something stuck to the wall of a cave?!"
Sokka: "I have a natural curiosity."

Book 3

Aang: "I can't believe we forgot Toph can't write!"
Sokka: "Yup, we're idiots."
Aang: "I guess Plan B is, we send a note to Toph saying it's from Katara."
Sokka: "I think we're gonna run into a similar problem."

Azula: "My own mother thought I was a monster."
Azula: "She was right, of course. But it still hurt."

Sokka: "Great. So we'll just use your new dance moves and tapdance our way to victory over the Fire Lord."
Zuko: "It's not a dance. It's a sacred Firebending form."
Katara: "Oh yeah? And what is this 'sacred' firebending form called?"
Zuko: "...the Dancing Dragon."

Sokka: "Maybe sometimes it's just better to call it quits before you fail."
Zuko: "No, it's not. Look Sokka, you are going to fail a lot before things work out."
Sokka: "That's supposed to make me feel better?"
Zuko: "Even though you'll probably fail over and over and over again . . ."
Sokka: "Seriously, not helping."
Zuko: ". . . You have to try every time. You can't quit because you are afraid you might fail!"

Warden: "The prisoners are escaping! Guards! Capture them and throw them in the cooler!"
Guard: "Uh, they are in a cooler, sir."
Warden: "One that's bolted down and not floating in the water!"

Azula: "The thing I don't understand is why? Why would you do it? You know the consequences."
Mai: "I guess you just don't know people as well as you think you do. You miscalculated. I love Zuko more than I fear you."

Guard: "What are you doing?!"
Mai: "Saving the jerk who dumped me."

Zuko: "What are you doing here?"
Azula: "You mean it's not obvious yet? I'm about to celebrate becoming an only child!"

Zuko: "I suppose you were right. She didn't need revenge. Violence wasn't the answer."
Aang: "It never is."
Zuko: "Then I have a question for you: what will you do when you face my father?"
