I doubt they're that rich any more. Juri's rather seen to that.

Oh, no, I don't mean that. I mean the time she actually escaped. She only got as far as the mailroom before Zuko caught up with her again, but it still counts. :)

Well, she's also done a tolerable amount of good for the world in that time; but not for Katara, so I suppose it could be argued that it doesn't really count. That wasn't the time or place to get into that, though.

You know what, I bet that's not true. Azula has a really good memory.

Well, say rather that it wouldn't have been without merit if the conclusion you drew it from was accurate. It's just that it wasn't. :)

Well, as with Droit, hold that thought. I'm even telling you in advance this time. :)
