True, although in fairness, Dorothy would probably be doing so even if she didn't know him. Well, actually, she'd have been scrapped by now if she didn't know him, but - well, you know.

The Subterranean Transport sign? He just wants it for a funky decoration. He likes the typography. They're a bit like those early-20th-century Paris Metro signs, except they say SUBTERRANEAN. (I'm not sure where Kara comes into it, come to that.)
>Momo was in the top three best characters in the original series. And
>had no lines.
That's not true! He had five lines!
... OK, Aang was hallucinating at the time. But still!
>I'm somewhat disappointed by Naga in comparison.
Aw, Naga's great. Not as wacky as Momo, true, but it's worth the price of admission just for that scene in the noodle bar in episode 5. Besides, she's not really supposed to be the Momo equivalent in LoK; that's Pabu.
>I assume there's a corresponding discreetness on the way out?
Depends on where you buy your ticket. The ticket agents in Republic City are a little less obsessed with protocol than the ones in Ba Sing Se.
>That must be impressive to watch from the street (or a high rise

I suspect there are, in fact, bending demonstration teams who go around like (or with) circuses, putting on shows. There are probably even comedy bending demonstration teams, like the Flying Karamazov Brothers with elemental superpowers. And, of course, there's the annual Fire Days Festival in most Fire Nation and western-UR towns.
>The Graflex being of course famous for giving us the lightsaber.
Indeed, it must be horribly annoying to be an actual Speed Graphic collector these days, doggedly scouring the Earth for the one goddam Graphic flashgun someone hasn't turned into a lightsaber prop yet.
>> Minox A3S
>Is that the one with a fixed focal point, and a chain used to
>determine proper distance?
The classic Minox cameras did have that, yes. One imagines its (fictional, semiextradimensional) counterpart here is a little more sophisticated than that.
