  • Episode Description
  • After accidentally drinking a bottle of Sake, Rock Lee becomes drunk and seems to be more than Kimimaro can handle. Gai reveals exactly what happened last time he was drunk to Tsunade and says it took both Neji and him to hold Lee down, and that Lee is a master of the "Drunken Fist". Lee appears to be winning, but the tables soon turn when Kimimaro activates the first level of his Cursed Seal.moreless

  • Quotes (14)

    • Kimimaro: Your speed is impressive, but this is over now.

    • Kimimaro: My true abilities lie within my bones. I'm sure the little clone brat must have told you before he left. I think it's time you wised up. Lee: (Drunk) Wised up? Do I look stupid to you?! (Charges and knocked back) Kimimaro: Well, whatever you are, I'll snap you out of it. Lee: (Charging again) I said I'm not stupid! In the first place, you don't even know me! And secondly, don't even try to act like you do!

    • Kimimaro: (Thinking) I can't read his movements. For him to land an attack on me, that's quite the taijutsu. No other choice. (Activates his Cursed Mark)

    • Lee: (Drunk) If you will not make the first move, then I will have to bring the fight to you! (Lee charges) Kimimaro: (Thinking) His style of attack is fairly direct. Lee: (Falls flat on his face) Ow!

    • Kimimaro: (Thinking) Why can't I hit him?! Lee: (Drunk) Can't you see? (Dodges) I'm trying to take a nap. (Dodges more blows) Buzz, buzz, you little fly. (Kicks Kimimaro back) Bring it on already! Come on! What's the holdup, tough guy? Kimimaro: (Thinking) These movements... What are they?

    Allusions (1)

    • Drunken Fist: The whole Rock Lee fighting drunk theme, has to be inspired from the two Jackie Chan movies called "Drunken Master (1978)" and "Legend of Drunken Master" or "Drunken Master II (1994)".
