    • Yakumo: My parents were put to death by order of the Third Hokage! Naruto: No way! It's a lie! A lie! I'm not going to listen!

    • Guy: All right! I'll take care of things here. The rest of you take Kurenai and Yakumo back to the village. Organize a back-up unit. Kurenai: They're masters of genjutsu. You going to be alright alone? Guy: Are you kidding? With this finely tuned lethal weapon of a body. You think I can't handle their genjutsu tricks? I can handle them jutsu wait and see. (Does his patented smile and laughs) Don't you get it? Jutsu wait and see? (Laughs) Sakura: Oh boy.

    • Naruto: (Caught in a genjutsu) Stop it! Let go of me you overgrown weed! Sakura: Oh, good grief. Hey, Naruto. (Walks over to a struggling Naruto) Release! Naruto: (Snaps out of genjutsu) Oh, morning Sakura. Is breakfast ready? Sakura: Why do you always have to rush in like that, you idiot?! Naruto: That's right! Yakumo and Kurenai-sensei! (Runs off) Sakura, Guy, Kiba, and Hinata: Sigh.

    • Naruto: (Caught in a genjutsu) Whoa, that is one monster bean stalk!

    • Yakumo: Please help me. Kurenai: It'll be alright; I'm here now. No matter what happens, I promise I'll make sure you're safe.

    • Original Airdate: October 5, 2006

    • Kurenai used a sealing technique similar to the one Kakashi had used on Sasuke.

    • Kurenai used pain to release herself from Unkai's genjutsu, just like what Sasuke did against Orochimaru in episode 28, and Shikamaru from Tayuya as well.
