is sure to have a lot of moments where the censors weren't guarding their posts.
- In "Imprisoned", Sokka collects an assortment of nuts for dinner and they cannot go to a village to shop for fear of running into Fire Nation soldiers. The response from Katara and Aang is "I'd rather eat fireballs than nuts."
- In "The Fortuneteller", Aang comes in beaming after eavesdropping on Katara's fortune
Looks like someone had a pretty good bathroom break. Aang:
Y-yeah... when I was in there... Sokka: I don't even want to know.
- In "The Waterbending Scroll," one of the pirates begins to lower his trousers to moon Zuko. The camera cuts away just before the nudity is exposed.
- In "The Cave of Two Lovers" the gang meets a group of nomads. Their behavior is basically that of a stereotypical hippie, bags under the eyes and all, and their leader is named Chong.
- In "Bitter Work," Aang has to learn how to stand up to things like an Earthbender. Toph ends up going through his things and stealing his bag of nuts and his staff, which she uses to crack the nuts. Only in the end he has the balls to demand them back. The "delicate instrument" line from this scene doesn't help.
- "The Drill". Not only is the long stick like drill very phallic in appearance, but when the slurry overflows it looks like a "climax" into the wall.
- In "The Earth King" there is a scene where Zuko dreams about a serpentine dragon encircling him closely and whispering in his ear with Azula's voice, in a tone that can only be described as extremely seductive. Its exact words are "It's getting late, are you planning to retire soon, my lord? ...Relax, Fire Lord Zuko. Just let go. Give in to it." The Incest "Subtext" in that scene gets pretty close to just being "text", and would be pretty blatantly sexual even if the voice belonged to someone else.
- Aang using "monkey feathers" as an apparent swear, the pronunciation of which is an almost perfect anagram of "motherfucker".
- The fact that Zuko and Azula's subtext was about two inches away from being text the entire series. Really, it's surprising that they had subtext at all, considering this was a kids' show. To take that a step further, the fact that Azula generally looks and sounds like she's coming on to whoever she happens to be talking to at the moment raises some questionable implications.
