Naruto: It's impossible. Old man Gennou didn't have a mean bone in his body. He's just a sweet old man who loved the ramen at Ichiraku. He's not the kind of person who would do that; he wouldn't destroy the Hidden Leaf Village.
Shikamaru: Come on, Naruto. You thought he was a nice guy, but it was all an act. He wanted us to let our guard down, so when he got here, he played the part of the harmless old carpenter to avoid suspicion.
Naruto: You can't love ramen that much and be bad.
Choji: No, bad guys like ramen. They love it.
Shikamaru: Choji, maybe if you try and talk some sense into him, he'll listen.
Choji: Though I've got to admit, I've never seen a bad person eat at Ichiraku's, ever.
Naruto: Told ya!
Shikamaru: (Sarcastically) That's great, thanks for helping me out, Choji.
