Sasuke: I hope that woke you up, now you know I'm not messing around. We had a bit of interruption that day, but that won't happen this time. Let me show you the true power of the Sharingan!
Itachi: Being the best isn't all it's cracked up to be. When you have power, you become arrogant and isolated from the world, no matter how coveted and sought after you are in the beginning.
Young Shikamaru: Oh man, I thought recess was never gonna get here. These classes are such a drag.
Young Choji: Shikamaru, you want some?
Young Shikamaru: Seriously, not every single break has to be a snack break. You know what I mean?
Academy Instructor: Boy, it seems like yesterday you were here for Itachi, and you're his spitting image.
Fugaku: Thank you for your help with both of my boys.
Academy Instructor: Oh, not at all. It's been a pleasure. That boy of yours is a true prodigy. There hasn't been another one like him in the history of the academy.
Fugaku: Please, you're being too kind.
Academy Instructor: Nonsense. We expect big things from you as well Sasuke.
Fugaku: Become a fine shinobi, just like your older brother.
Young Sasuke: Yes, father.
Young Sasuke: I was wondering, how come the crest of the Uchiha clan is part of the Leaf police force insignia?
Itachi: Well whadda ya know? You finally noticed.
Young Sasuke: Course I did.
Itachi: Right... Let me see if I can explain it for you... It was the Uchiha clan's earliest ancestors who established the police here in the village, so when they created the symbol for the organization, they used the family crest. Since a long time ago, the Uchiha have always insured the peace here. The crest is a testament to the pride and our way of life centuries old. Over the years, the Uchiha clan has grown smaller, but even now nearly most all of us are a part of the force and work to uphold the peace in this village. Which is good, because only the most exceptional Shinobi can weed out the criminals hiding among their brethren.
Itachi: The people of this clan are all the same. You focus on the trivial and lose sight on what is most important. Change is impossible in this fog of ignorance. How can we evolve when regulation is all we know?
Itachi: Sasuke, know that I will always be there for you, even if it's just as an obstacle for you to overcome.
Itachi: Why don't you just come out and say it? (Itachi activates his Sharingan) You think that I had a hand in all of this!
Sasuke: But I will tell you this much, my days of playing ninja with you kids of the Leaf Village are done.
Itachi: I've lost all hope for this pathetic clan. You forget what is most important to you because you're not letting go of a lesser thing; the clan. There is no room for change if rules and regulations, expectations, and wishes, prevent it from happening.
Itachi: You focus on your group, and you focus on your clan, and you focus on your name. These kinds of things should be done away with, as it restrains us and our capabilities. Also, things we have not seen yet and things we do not know yet...It is foolish to fear them.
Itachi: It's just as I said before. You shouldn't judge others by their appearances and your preconceptions. You all thought I would be patient. The clan... The clan... All of you, without measuring your own capacity...had no idea of mine. And now you lie here, defeated.
Young Sasuke: (Thinking) This side of my brother...is something I've never seen before.
Itachi: It's just that we're unique siblings.
Young Sasuke: Father always talks about you.
Itachi: Am I that bad? Whatever, it's all right. Shinobi are hated by others, so it's no surprise.
Young Sasuke: That way... (Thinking) It's just as he said. In truth, I...About my brother...
Itachi: (To Sasuke) I'm the barrier you must overcome, so you and I will continue to exist together. Even if you hate me. That's what being a big brother is.
Itachi: Attach to clan? Attach to organization? Why attach and limit your container?
Sasuke: Last time there was an interference, that won't happen this time.
Itachi: That's what happens when you get that skilled. You become so obsessed with power that you become confined and arrogant, when you were really only trying to reach your dreams.
