Chief Chirpa: The leadership of the tribe is a privilege to be earned. Before one is leader, three lessons must be learned. The lesson of the hand will teach both strength and speed. The lesson of the head is learned when hands do not succeed. But the lesson of the heart will make the leader strong. With head and heart together, the hand is never wrong.

My Favorite "Kneesaa ep
15 March 2010 | by ja_kitty_71See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Season #1 eps. because it features my favorite Ewok - Kneesaa! This episode is also the first that shows Chief Chirpa instructing his daughter on the tribe's leadership.

In this episode, while her friends are dancing on a nice day, Kneesaa had to study...which she is not happy about. Then she gets a devious grin on her face : "But, Father wouldn't mind if I leave for a little while." But in her hast, Kneesaa knocked over a potion of Logray that spilled in his stranglethorn plant; she did not know that it was a growth potion, and the plant started growing and running amok in the village! (*YIPES!*) So feeling responsible, Kneesaa decides to go get the ingredients for the antidote - Keet's necter, Ganga Root and sap from a Trome tree; of course, fearing for her safety, Wickett goes along with her...Will they succeed?

I love it, when Kneesaa thanked Wickett for coming with her, she gives him a cute smile and Wickett : "Aw well...We better go!" I was like "Aww, did I detect a hint of blush in those cheeks?" (*snicker*) I also love after the crisis was averted, Kneesaa went to Logray to swear to him that she would no longer avoid her studies and that she would learn the three lessons diligently. However, Logray revealed to Kneesaa that she had already learned all three lessons in her quest to retrieve the ingredients to the antidote. With this declaration, Chirpa hugged and congratulated his daughter on her accomplishment, declaring that she would make a great chieftess one day. And her friends (including her new friends the Tromes) give Kneesaa a rousing cheer.
