  • Quotes

    • Lee: This is The Curry of Life. Now, Grandma Sanshou went through the trouble of making us this curry, so let us dig in! I cannot wait! (Lee take a bite and his face turns red) Delicious! (Scarfs down the whole plate) This is delectable! A myriad of flavors, the spices are blended to perfection! Plus whatever these little artichoke hearts are, they are amazing!

    • (Izuma and Kotetsu are hauling up the chair that Tsunade threw out the window)
      Izuma: It could have been worse, at least it wasn't her desk.
      (Kotetsu has a bloody knot on his head from the chair)
      Kotetsu: You're hilarious, you know that?

    • Lee: Naruto! Uh... Sorry, am I intruding?
      Naruto: (Mad) Well, what does it look like?
      Lee: (Talking to himself) No, Lee. You must hold fast, you must not turn away. In our youth we must seize the moment! (Turns his attention back to Sakura and Naruto) Hey, Sakura. How are you today?
      Sakura: (Giggles) I'm great, Lee.
      Naruto What do you want already?
      Lee: A word with you, actually!

    • Naruto: Still no sign of Pervy Sage and now I'm stuck with some lame old mission. Man, this bites!

    • Tsunade: Once these men have regained their strength, your objective is to escort them back to the Katabame mine and take out this Kurosuki family. Simple mission really. They're probably just a pack of money grubbing hoodlums.
      Naruto: So what am I doing here? It sounds like a chimp could do this mission.
      Tsunade: Who the heck do you think you are?!
      Naruto: Come on Grandma, I've got enough on my plate with training and looking for Sasuke...(Tsunade grabs him by the collar) Gah!
      Tsunade: You think you get to call the shots around here, pipsqueak?! You're a Genin and you'll take whatever mission I give you or I'll send you back to the academy so fast, your head'll spin!

    • Naruto: Here I am! So, we're all here. Let's hit the road everybody.
      Neji: That's not your call.
      Naruto: Let's do it. Hey, ha...which way is it?

    • Tsunade: Neji Hyuga!
      Neji: Yes!
      Tsunade: You're team leader. It will be good training for you trying to tame the untamable.
      Neji: I'd rather not, but I'll give it a go.

    • Ranmaru: One... Two... Three. Another three have gotten away.
      Raiga: One more funeral to look forward to.

    • Naruto: Let's go! (Pauses) So, which way is it?

      ~Japanese version

    • Tsunade: Mission to escort Chichiatsu-sama, the Swamp Country's feudal lord, completed. Good work
      (Tsunade reaches for a set of dumplings on a stick, but Anko grabs it first)
      Shizune: Those are Tsunade-sama's!
      Anko: Konoha has the best dango.
      Tsunade: Those were the last ones!

      ~Japanese version

    • Gai: Mission complete! I defeated those bandits with my fists of love! They accepted the influence of justice and I wept!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Why'd you call me for such an easy mission?
      Tsunade: Who the hell do you think you are?
      Naruto: I'm busy with searching for Sasuke and training!
      Tsunade: A low-standing Genin who butts into missions he wasn't called for doesn't get to pick his missions! Do you want to be sent back to the Academy?! Huh?!

      ~Japanese version

    • (Lee interupts Naruto and Sakura's conversation)
      Lee: I'm sorry. Am I interupting something?
      Naruto: Big time!
      Lee: No no! I can't turn the other way! That is forbidden in the Springtime of Youth! Sakura, good afternoon.
      Sakura: (Laughs) Good afternoon, Lee.
      Naruto: So, what did you come here for?
      Lee: I need to talk to you about something. (Runs down the stairs with Naruto, waves to Sakura) Sakura, goodbye!
