When Shizune was scolding Naruto, his head reached the height of her shoulder. How could he have done that if he was tied down to the bed?
Jiraiya: They're fools, but they're determined fools. They'll go anyway. There's nothing that we can say that will stop them. The result will be that we will lose the services of two of our most valuable Genin. You can't let it happen! You can save them by giving them an official mission to investigate the Village Hidden in the Sound.
Tsunade: Do I have any choice? Only on one condition, make sure both of them get back alive. Understood?
Jiraiya: Don't worry. They will even if I don't.
Sakura: I know what you're thinking... That I'm being foolish, that I don't have a chance of rescuing Sasuke on my own. But I... I couldn't live with my self if I didn't try. All this time I've let others do everything and I've been nothing but a burden. I haven't done one thing well, not a single thing. Don't try and stop me!
Naruto: Who says I want to? You do what you gotta do, but as long as you don't mind me tagging along.
Jiraiya: (Eating from Naruto's fruit basket) So, I hear you snuck out. You want to start training that bad, huh?
Naruto: When did you get here? Hey! Pervy Sage, that's mine!
Jiraiya: Atta boy. You're recovering nicely. We can start training anytime now.
Naruto: I'm still going to keep my promise no matter what.
Sakura: No, Naruto, it's okay.
Sakura: Up 'til now, all I've done is rely on you. I see now that was a mistake.
Naruto: I don't get it, Sakura. Are you mad at me or something?
Sakura: No, far from it. In fact, just seeing you makes me more than I was before.
Sakura: It's time I started carrying my weight.
Sakura: (Thinking) Was that the best I could do? Cry and beg? I just gave up, put it all on Naruto, and Naruto didn't flinch. He risked everything to bring Sasuke back. He put his life on the line. Now it's time I finally did something for Sasuke. Time I put my life on the line.
Naruto: This Ichiraku ramen is all I need to get me back on my feet.
Naruto: So, what now, Pervy Sage?
Jiraiya: Will you please stop calling me that?!
Sakura: That's right, he's one of the legendary Sannin. Show some respect.
Naruto: (Whispers) Trust me, when you get to know him, you'll see he's just a lazy, old pervert, that's all.
Jiraiya: What did he just say?!
Jiraiya: If I had wanted to sneak a peek, it wouldn't be at an old lady.
Tsunade: Excuse me?!
Jiraiya: No, wait! That didn't come out right!
Tavern Lady: Well, they say a fool and his money are soon parted.
