Oh, there are so many to choose from. So many dramatic or cinematic moments to keep in memory. Still, I have to say Iroh kneeling at the base of that tree in "Tales of Ba Sing Se" was, for me, the most memorable... and one of the most heart-wrenching.
This dates me a little bit, but I hardly remember a time when I didn't see Mako (Iroh's voice, for those who may not know), making an appearance on television or in movies, from M*A*S*H, to Magnum P.I. to Conan the Barbarian, to Tora Tora Tora, to Bulletproof Monk... to name a few. Though he was not often a principle character, Mako was always there, somewhere, on screen. So Iroh's tale of Ba Sing Se had a very special meaning for me, because it marked the passing of an old friend.
MOST MEMORABLE LINE: "Leaves from the vine, falling so slow // like fragile, tiny shells, drifting in the foam // Little soldier boy comes marching home // brave soldier boy comes marching home."

Most Memorable Lines: *I only had the Fire Nation's best interests at heart. (Terrified) I'm sorry I spoke out of turn!" ~Zuko *Everything Sokka ever says ESPECIALLY during the Cactus Juice Trip. "You will learn respect, and suffering will be your teacher." ~Ozai "I looked away." ~Iroh "Ever since I lost my son... (tearfully) I think of you as my own." ~Iroh" "Allow yourself to go down that road, and you surrender to your lowest instinct." ~Iroh "Destiny is our friend today, I know it." ~Iroh
Most Memorable Actions:
*Iroh burning the Fire Nation flag in the finale is my all time favorite scene in the Avatar series. The look on his face was electrifying (forgive the pun). I wish they showed more of the OWL in the finale. Old people ROCK! *Zuko taking a shot of lightening for Katara. *Zuko saving the helmsman in The Storm. *Azula sobs and throws her brush at the mirror and when she totally breaks down after Katara chains her. *Bumi took back Omashu by himself
there are just too many to even think of...but here are some of them season1 and 2 that i love and quote often. lol I'll state my favorite season 3 later..when my mind isn't so frazzled by the epicness! lol okay...here we go...
Gran Gran: Aang is the Avatar, he's the worlds only chance. You both found him for a reason. Now your destinies are intertwined with his. Katara: Why didn't you tell us that you were the Avatar? Aang: Because...I never wanted to be. Katara: Stealing is wrong. Unless it's from pirates! Aang: Sokka's just jealous because he doesn't have an arrow! Aang: I can't make guesses about how things would have turned out if I hadn't run away. I'm here now and I'm going to make the most of it. Sokka: That woman is crazy! My life will be calm, and happy and joyful!...*cue rock*..Ow! That doesn't prove anything!! Jeong Jeong: Learn restraint, or risk destroying yourself and everything you love. Iroh: I think of you as my own. Sokka: You're just a jerk without a soul! No offense. Zuko: You rise with the moon. I rise with the sun.
Season 2: Azula: Well, then, maybe you should worry less about the tides who've already made up their mind about killing you and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over. Roku: If you are killed in the Avatar state, the reincarnation cycle will be broken and the Avatar will cease to exist. Aang: Gee, I’d love to help, but I’m supposed to be boiled in oil. Sokka: The Boulder knows how to put the hurt in the dirt! Iroh: There is nothing wrong with letting people who love you help you. Not that I love you, I just met you! Aang: If I try, I fail. But if I don’t try, I’m never going to get it. I feel like I’m caught between a rock and a hard place. Sokka: It’s a giant mushroom! Maybe it’s friendly! Sokka: Momo NO!!! You've killed us ALL! (pretty much every sokka quote in The Desert ep) Toph: Oh…well…heheh. You can go ahead and let me drown now
Aang: The question is, how are we gonna stop that thing Sokka: Why are you all looking at me Aang: You’re the idea guy. Sokka: (complaining) So I’m the only one who can ever come up with a plan That’s a lot of pressure. Katara: And also the complaining guy. Sokka: That part I don’t mind.
Ty Lee: Hey, look at that dust cloud. It's so..poofy. POOF! Aang: Good evening, Mr. Sokka Watertribe. Ms. Katara Watertribe. Lord Momo of the Momo Dynasty, your Momo-ness. Iroh: Iroh: While it is always best to believe in one's self, a little help from others can be a great blessing. Toph: Let me out of here, so I can kick both your butts! Aang: Why would I choose cosmic energy over Katara? How could it be a bad thing that I feel an attachment to her? Three chakras ago, that was a good thing. Mai: Yeah, I thought you were gonna make that one guy pee his pants. Iroh: Perfection and power are overrated. I think you were very wise to choose happiness and love.
sorry it's so stinkin long! lol

Katara: LET US LEAVE! Bumi: Lettuce leaf? *proceeds to eat some lettuce*
And when Zuko was trying to be like Iroh when he was trying to become part of the gaang. "You must look within yourself to save yourself from the other self, only then will your true self will reveal itself." His quote was deep.

I'm constantly changing my favourite character, but Sokka will always have a special place in my heart.
Sokka: Don't answer to Twinkle Toes! it's not manly!
Sokka: What is that? Aang: This is Appa, my flying bison. Sokka: Yeah, and this is Katara, my flying sister.
Sokka: [thinks he's an earthbender] Take *that*, you rock!
Sokka: OH NOO!! I knew it was only a matter of time! APPA ATE MOMO!! MOMO!! Im coming for ya buddy!
Captain: Princess, I'm afraid the tides won't allow us to bring the ship into port before nightfall. Azula: I'm sorry, Captain, but I do not know much about the tides. Can you explain something to me? Captain: Of course. Azula: Do the tides command this ship? Captain: I'm afraid I don't understand. Azula: You said "the tides would not allow us to bring the ship in." Do the tides command this ship? Captain: No, Princess. Azula: And if I were to have you thrown overboard, would the tides think twice about having you smashed against the rocky shore? Captain: No, Princess. Azula: Well, then, maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over...
Zuko: If the Earth Kingdom discovers us, they'll have us killed. Iroh: But if the Fire Nation discovers us, we'll be turned over to Azula. (Nod to each other) Zuko: Earth Kingdom it is.
Sokka: Nice dance Zuko: It’s not a dance. It’s a sacred form that happens to hundrends of years old! Katara: oh yeah, what’s it called Zuko: The Dancing Dragon…

Anything from King Bumi...
King Bumi: But for now, the guards will show you to your chamber. Earthbender Soldier: My liege, do you mean the good chamber or the bad chamber. King Bumi: The newly refurbished chamber. Earthbender Soldier: Wait, umm, which one are we talking about? King Bumi: The one that used to be the bad chamber, until the recent refurbishing, that is. Of course, we’ve been calling it the new chamber, but we really should number them. Uhh, take them to the refurbished chamber that was once bad!
Bumi: Wait. Someone's missing from your group. Someone very important. Where's Momo?!
I'm not sure if this has been posted, probably has, but in my opinion the most memorable action is at the end of 'The Chase' when Azula injurys Iroh. Just that entire scene right there is amazing. How they all attack Azula at the same time, but of course she escapes. And Zuko yelling at the gaang to get away and Toph's expression when she maybe realizes who and how badly Iroh was injured. Katara offering to help but Zuko telling them to leave even going as far as to use his firebending it's just amazing.
A line that I remember best is from 'Zuko Alone' when Ursa leaves Zuko saying 'Everything I've done I've done to protect you. Remember this Zuko. No matter how things may seem to change, never forget who you are.'
I know there are ton others but I simply love these two right now.
