Interlude: Bachelors' Medley

Now that Aang has officially lost to Zuko in the race for Katara's heart, the other spinsters decided to take him out for a few rounds, despite all of them being under the legal drinking age. As it just so happens, they go to a karaoke bar!

The scene opens with none other than our dear Jet at the microphone…

A little bit of 'Zula, in my life;

A little bit of 'Tara, by my side;

A little bit of Yue's all I need;

A little bit of Suki's what I see;

A little bit of Tai Lee, in the sun;

A little bit of Mei, yeah all night long;

A little bit of Gran-Gran, here I am;

A little bit of you makes me your man…

Gran-Gran: Er… it's not you, it's me…

Jet: Thank you, thank you, good people of The Head of the Fire Lord Pub! (flourishing bow ) (is knocked out by shoe)

Bob? Bill? Barty?: Thank you, powers that be…

Sokka: (muttering) Serve him right… Aang, why don't you get up and do a number? It'll make you feel better, I promise.

Aang: (moan)

Sokka: All right, I guess I'll have to demonstrate….

Can't touch this
Can't touch this
Ya can't touch this
Can't touch this

My my my boomerang keeps me
Makes me say Oh Agni
Thank you for blessing me
With a mind to fight
And two quick feet

It feels good
When you know you're down
A super-dope homeboy from way down town
And I'm known as such
And this is a beat, uh, you can't touch –

I told you, Zuko -
Can't touch this
Yeah, that's how we livin' and you know….
Can't touch this
Look at my skillz, man
Can't touch this
Ya know let me bust the funky lyrics -

Aang: Spirits help me… both kinds.

Meanwhile –


Can't touch this

Break it down!

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh ,oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!


"Get off the mike, amateur!"

Aang: Gasp! It's Master – er… guy from the North Pole!

Master Pakku: (Twitch). Let me show you how it's done on the North Side, beeyotch…

Let's kick it!
Ice, ice, baby…

All right stop –

Collaborate and listen
Ice is back with my brand new invention

Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Flows like a harpoon daily and nightly

Will it ever stop?
Yo, I don't know

Turn off the lights
And I'll flow

To the extreme I rock water like a Master
Freeze up the stage and watch me bend even faster –

Roku: Those waterbenders, always so cocky…

Aang: GASP! Avatar Roku!

Roku: It is I. Now… it is time… to rock.

Master Pakku: Avatar, sir?

Roku: Let's shred it…

Ohhh -

Everybody was firebending
You know many battles were ending
The Fire Nations troops were rending
Away losers we were sending
There was the freaky Water Tribe
From freaky down below
There was Earth Nation too
Til we had a giant coup
It's an ancient kick-ass art

And every body knew their part –

Aang: Um… there never was a gigantic wave of coups in the Earth Nation… and aren't you supposed to remain subjective, sir?

Roku: Looks like someone doesn't want my awesome advice anytime in the near future…

Aang: Roku, wait!

Roku: No, Aang, we are OVER! You just keep walking all over me! I don't even know who I am anymore! It's like your trying to make me an incarnation of YOU!

Aang: But Roku -

Roku: STOP SMOTHERING ME! (rushes out of the bar and slams the door)

Aang: How did I screw up my life so badly? First Katara, then Roku… who's next? APPA?!

Appa: Er… rawr. (Translation: Aang, I have something to confess.)

Aang: Whatcha talking about, Appa old buddy, old pal, old friend of mine? My true blue? Mi amigo?

Appa: Rawr lawl… roorm. (Momo and I… are eloping.)

Rawl darw
Arp rawr!

(Going to the chapel
And we're gonna get married!)

Aang: WHAT?!

Sokka: Hey Aang… I know I said I was gonna take you out tonight and do some male bonding… but Suki just texted me… so, um… see ya later? (leaves)

Jet: Yo, Avatar… catch ya later! I gotta go entertain this nice young lady here…

Tai Lee: (giggles)

Aang: So, uh, going to stick around long, Gran-gran?

Gran-gran: Sorry, kid. Even I've got plans. (exits)

Aang: Oh. Well, see you around. (sigh) Being the Avatar is such a big responsibility… always alone… (looks plaintively out of the window)

"One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do…"

Awww. Poor Aang. But seriously, that last part was supposed to be REALLY corny. Where he looks out the window and stuff. So don't be sad for Aang. Be happy! He's corn-tastic!
