Zuko: Let the kid go.
Soldier: Who do you think you are, telling us what to do?
Zuko: It doesn't matter who I am. But I know who you are: you're not soldiers; you're bullies, free-loaders abusing your power mostly over women and kids. You don't want Lee in your army. You're sick cowards messing with a family that's already lost one son to the war.
Gow (to other soldiers): Are you gonna let this stranger stand there and insult you like this?
