Avatar: The Last Airbender “The Painted Lady” (part 2 of 2)
That night, Katara suits up again and heads to the factory. But this time, Aang wakes up and decides to ask the Painted Lady to help Appa. Needless to say, this puts Katara in a tricky spot, which leads to a nice, time-consuming chase scene. At least it has kind of a neat bit where Aang makes ice stepping stones to cross a lake.
Finally, he catches up to Katara, but the gag is extended even further as she tries to keep her face hidden and get away from him. God, we all know where this is going, so stop wasting our time! This goes on for a bit, until Aang is clearly just as sick of this as we are, and he does some airbending to blow her hat off.
Katara confesses to the whole thing, including how she fed Appa a bunch of berries to make his tongue purple. Apparently, Appa was acting sick all on his own. But Aang’s completely into this, so he joins her in taking out the factory. Damn, that whole scene really could have been tightened up.
