One summer day, this man decided to stop at a Fire Nation bar with his friend, where he attempted to ride the mechanical komodo rhino. He was subsequently disoriented by the rhino and helped up by his friend. He then watched as Katara, disguised as a boy, attempted to ride it. He warned her to hold on with both hands, but she did not listen and was thrown off the rhino.
Katara was thrown into his friend, who yelled at her in anger. Katara called his friend a "toothpick", angering the Fire Nation bar patron. Katara nearly began a fight with him and his friend, but was dragged off by Toph, much to his and his friend's enjoyment.
