The dub erroneously refers to the opening theme as "Namikaze Satellite" in the credits, which was the previous opening theme.
Akahoshi's Henchman: I thought we lost this brat in the Valley of Death.
Naruto and his clones: Ha! Takes more than that to get rid of me! Or should I say us?
Naruto: We've got to get back to the village and tell Akahoshi that this crazy training has got to stop.
Natsuhi: Akahoshi's dream of making the village strong is more important to him than the safety of its people! To show you how little he cares about them, he took Sumaru hostage in order to trade his life to me for the star.
Naruto: Does this training really do that much damage?
Natsuhi: Yes. It wasn't long after we left the village that my husband, Hotarubi, died from it's effects. The same thing could very well happen to me at any time. There's no way of knowing.
Naruto: That's awful!
Naruto: (Eating a bowl of soup) Mmmm... Delicious! There's nothing like a mom's home cooking, even when it's in a cave.
Neji: Why did you hit Naruto too?
(Akahoshi begins to act like he is going to attack Neji as well, but stops)
Akahoshi: It was an accident, I had to strike when I had the chance. Sadly your friend got in the way. A tragic loss, I've never seen anyone defeat the Ninja Art Kujaku before. He will be missed. You have our thanks, Leaf Village shinobi. Your mission here is over now.
Neji: But we haven't recovered the star.
Akahoshi: We'll handle that ourselves. Farewell, my friend.
Naruto: My name's Naruto. I'm a ninja from the Hidden Leaf Village who's here to...uh, well...I'm actually supposed to be protecting the star...from thieves like you, no offense.
(Natsuhi and Naruto both laugh)
Natsuhi: My name is Natsuhi.
Naruto: Natsuhi? Wait a minute, haven't I heard that name somewhere before?
Naruto: Yeah, Natsuhiboshi, that's what Sumaru called it. He said it was the name of the star that watches over him and protects him.
Natsuhi: Really? Sumaru told you that?
Naruto: Yeah. Hey lady, do you know him or something?
Natsuhi: (Pulls out charm just like Sumaru's) He is my son.
Lee:It means that the shinobi that took the star, and the one who kidnapped you are two different people.
Tenten: Excellent, except that Neji already said that.
Naruto: What's wrong, Sumaru's mom?
Natsuhi: Akahoshi has come.
Naruto: This food is good, I wonder if this is what you call a mother's touch.
Natsuhi: Sumaru is my child.
Naruto: What!? You're Sumaru's mom?
Naruto: Did you save me?
Natsuhi: Relax, I'm not your enemy.
