  • Quotes

    • Gatsu: What do ya have to say jerks? (Referring to the villagers) You made me track down some innocent guy for nothin'. What are you going to do?
      Sazanami: Why are you helping me?
      Gatsu: Huh? It all started with some sob story I overheard. To a bounty hunter like me, the truth shouldn't have made any difference. Even so, I had to find out for myself. I needed to make sure that you were the horrible criminal the posters said you were.
      Sazanami: You...
      Gatsu: I got a name you know: Gatsu. You and I are bounty hunters, we're a part of the same trade now.

    • Naruto: So what are you doing here anyway?
      Sazanami: I just came to settle the score.
      Hinata: Yes, but, your wound is still...
      Sazanami: Don't worry, I won't be in your way. I just want to get him first. Think of it like a competition.
      Naruto: Ha! Sounds fun. I accept your challenge.

    • Naruto: Hey Hinata, what's that bell?
      Hinata: That was created as a tourist attraction to get people to visit the temple. It's the Golden Bell.
      Kiba: That's dumb. Look at that thing; it's practically screaming "come steal me".
      Naruto: Wait a second! I bet Gosunkugi is after that bell!

    • Hinata: The Land of Stone, Post Station Two. Everything in this town... Politics... Economy... Military, it's all administered by monks.
      Naruto: Oh man, this whole place is nothing but temples!

    • Kiba: Are you sure that was such a good idea, Naruto?
      Naruto: Gosunkugi is an animal. We gotta take out that guy no matter what the risk.
      Hinata: Yes, Naruto's right.
      Naruto: Besides, we can't just let a guy in Sazanami's condition track him down on his own. Not only would he fail, he might end up getting killed by Gosunkugi himself.

    • Sazanami: I never committed any crime.
      Naruto: Okay then, how do you figure this wanted flyer with your picture on it?
      Sazanami: Gosunkugi was the one who did it. He killed a totally innocent family of three... And he did it just to steal some money.

    • Naruto: Hehehe... You know, after all this time, I'm kinda getting homesick. I guess I miss the good old Leaf Village more than I thought I would.
      Kiba: Oh yeah? Well, a failed mission is still a failed mission. The Fifth Hokage is going to chew you out!

    • Naruto: Hey, you're talking to a ninja here, buddy! When we get a mission, we see it all the way through.

    • Kiba: Gives new meaning to the phrase "nailed down," doesn't it?
