Secret River?

Aang said that there was a secret river to the Fire Lord's Palace. Was he just trying to convince Sokka to let him stay another day?—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:30, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Evidently. The 888th Avatar - Talk 00:25, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

References to popular culture

The music lesson scene seems to be a hint towards The Simpsons. In the series intro, Lisa is standing out while playing the sax in a similar way as Aang playing the Tsungi Horn.

That appears to be possible, but it is quite speculative and it may not belong to the article as a whole. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 02:48, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Another possible reference to pop culture is the escape scene, where the students put on headbands to aid Aang's escape, for me, it bore resemblance to the escape scene in the Thomas Crown Affair, except replacing the cave with an art gallery, and the headbands with a bowler hat and trenchcoat. Oh and the headmaster with the police.

Trivia Correction, Capoeira Influence

So, in the Trivia for this episode, it states that in Aang and Katara's dancing scene, there's an influence from the         Afro-Brazilian dance, Capoeira, acording to the Avatar Extras. However, it also says that this may be incorrect. It is NOT incorrect, I'm brazilian and I could notice beforehand that some moves were clearly from Capoeira. More specifically, the simultaneous move of one kicking, and other ducking, followed by cartwheels, are Capoeira beyond any doubt.

The sentence saying that the Capoeira influence could be wrong should be removed, and another sentence or Trivia should be added affirming how the motions I described above are taken from the Capoeira dancing/fighting.
