Naruto: (Holds his fist up to the Fourth's stone face) Please, watch me!
(Naruto's eating ramen)
Jiraiya: (Walks in) It's about time to go, Naruto.
Naruto: (Finishes his bowl) Well, I'm off, Iruka-sensei! I'll let you take care of the ramen bill!
(Ino reveals to Sakura that she wishes to become a medical nin)
Sakura: You'd better be prepared! You're going to become my little sister.
Ino: What's with that?!
Sakura: Isn't it obvious? I'll be your medical ninja senpai! I'm really looking forward to it! You'll be my cute little sister! I'm going to have to give you a lot of work!
Ino: (Vexed) Just you wait and see! I'm going to surpass you!
Sakura: Just you try, Ino-pig!
Ino: I'm gonna do it, forehead girl!
(Gaara, Kankuro, Temari & Matsuri are about to leave)
Temari: We owe you a favor now, don't we?
Shikamaru: No, we just repaid you a favor thats all. We'll do an even better job if something like this ever happens again.
Temari: Well, I'll acknowledge that you did so-so this time.
Shikamaru: There you go again! This is why I hate women!
(Naruto's lying in a hospital bed)
Naruto: (Screams) Ero-sennin!
Jiraiya: Hey! It's been a while, hasn't it, Naruto?
Naruto: Don't say, "It's been a while", you stupid hermit! Here you said that you would help me with my training and take me on as your student! Where the hell have you been?!
Jiraiya: Well, how to say it... I guess I was gathering information.
Naruto: You were probably gathering information on naked ladies.
Jiraiya: You idiot!
(Gaara impales Seimei with his Shukaku's Spear)
Seimei: W-Why? Why are you...?
Gaara: Someone like you, who only sees people as weapons, wouldn't understand.
Seimei: I don't understand! How? How?! (Falls)
Gaara: Desert Imperial Funeral!
Gaara: I will work hard because I want to be acknowledged by others. That's what I thought when I looked at Uzumaki Naruto. Bonds with others... Until now, I had only known them as hate and murderous intent. But I wonder, what is that bond that he longed for? Now, I think I understand, even if only a little. Pain, sadness...and joy. These feelings allow you to understand others.
Kakashi: We finally catch up with them and it's all over.
Jiraiya: It just means those squirts are improving a little, right?
Kakashi: That's pretty harsh.
