  • Lee getting hurt again, Gai getting attacked by training posts, Tenten showing affection for Lee and a glimpse of what Tenten and Neji would look like wearing Gai's famous green spandex jumpsuit. Basically awesomeness defined.

    • Naruto: Those tights were comfortable! And I look pretty cool in them too! Tenten: (Sarcastically) Yeah, I bet you did. Heh, heh. Neji: Yes, it's true. If Lee weren't here... (Shows a clip with Tenten, Neji, and Guy all wearing green jumpsuits. They all laugh) Tenten: To youth! Neji: To effort! Guy: And here's to the chicken that crossed the road! Neji and Tenten: But seriously folks... Guy: BAWK! BAAAWWWK! (End of clip) Tenten: I'd sure be sorry not to have Lee around. Neji: Yes, so would I.

    • (Flashback) Guy: Right! Today I'm gonna give you all a special reward. Neji: A reward? Tenten: Like what? Guy: Like this! (Pulls out a green jumpsuit) Ha ha ha! Lee: (Eyes become hearts) Aahhh! Guy: Your own set of tights, just like the ones I use. Designed for the ultimate comfort, ease of movement, they have outstanding ventilation, and moisture-leaking properties, making one training session an ease, and you're gonna wanna wear them all the time, oh yeah! Lee: (Jumping all over the place) Oh! This is so exciting! I cannot wait! Me first, sensei! Me first! (End flashback)

    • (The wooden dummies surround and close in to crush Gai) Gai: (Jumps clear and laughs) All right, so you can move, but your still earthbound. You'll never reach me up... (The wooden dummies jump up to Gai) Oh, you can jump my wooden friend? What a surprise!

    • Gai: Ah, how it brings back fond memories of my fiery youth. The hours I spent furiously pummeling dummies just like these, seems like it was only yesterday. (The wooden sparring dummies start to move) Still it's very curious to find them way up here in the middle of nowhere. I wonder who put them up here and for what dark purpose. (The wooden dummies start to attack and Gai dodges them) Hmm, so these wooden dummies are capable of attack. Nice try but you'll have to do better than that my wooden friend.

    • Tsunade: Go on, get out of here! (Hits Naruto) Naruto: Gah, right! (Runs out of examination room with his shirt off) Sakura: Naruto, get your clothes on! Naruto: Sorry! Sakura: Good grief.

    • When Yagura was passing by Lee, there was a sign that had "Naruto" on it.

    • Tsunade uses fake arms to make it look like she's working. After Shizune tells her Yagura is an impostor, she pulls out cards with Neji's, Tenten's, Naruto's, and Lee's faces on them. And for some reason, Naruto's picture shows him in jail.

    • Gai: I am Minami Hanatarou! ~Japanese Version Minami Hanatarou is from an old Japanese comedy routine. The dub replaced the reference with the chicken that crossed the road, another enigmatic joke.
