Gamakichi: Are you out of your gourd?! You can't summon pops out here, it would be a disaster!
Naruto: How come?
Gamakichi: We're freshwater creature, genius. Saltwater and frogs don't mix.
Gamatatsu: Actually, I don't like anything salty.
Naruto: Gah! Then what good are you, for cryin' out loud?!
Anko: Careful you two, we're being targeted from underwater.
Naruto: Oh boy. (Thinking) Well, whatever this thing is, an underwater battle calls for an underwater expert. (Aloud) Summoning Jutsu! (Thinking) I'm counting on you Chief Toad. (Sees Gamakichi and shouts) You again?!
Gamakichi: Jeez Louise, what're you callin' me here for kid?!
Naruto: Hey look, I'm not happy to see you either!
Ino: It's getting dark.
Anko: We'll be at the island pretty soon. Just a bit further.
Naruto: (Rowing the boat) Sounds good to me! Mother Island full steam ahead everybody!
Ino: Sun's down you know. Seriously, where do you get all your energy from?
Naruto: Yeah, well, at times like this your state of mind is key.
Ino: (Sighs) Sakura's got her hands full. I feel so bad for her.
Ino: (Thinking about Anko) This lady is one loose cannon!
Naruto: Okay! Let's set sail for the Land of the Sea!
Ino: (Thinking) Why does he always have to be so gung-ho? I have a bad feeling about this.
Ino: (Reading a book) Demon of the Ocean has physical traits both human and fish-like. What is this?
Naruto: These people need to have their eyes examined. Something like that doesn't exist.
Shino: Not necessarily. This could be ninja resorting to piracy with genjutsu at their disposal.
Naruto: Somethin' here doesn't smell right.
Anko: Okay, you got your marching orders. Zip it! (Grabs Naruto's ear)
Naruto: Ow-ow-ow-ow! All right!
Anko: Now then, let's get this show on the road. Go pack your gear and meet me at the front gate.
Ino & Shino: Roger!
Naruto: Man, that really hurt.
Shino: (Appears behind Naruto) Naruto.
Naruto: Gah! Shino, don't sneak up on me like that!
Shino: Ino... Naruto... The Hokage wishes to see you now.
Ino: Huh? Both of us?
Shino: I was told to come fetch you. She wants to see all three of us.
Sakura & Ino: Huh?
Naruto: You, Shino, and me?
Sakura: Ino was down with a cold for a while and the guys were sent out on a mission without her.
Ino: And I'm like totally recovered now. If I don't blow off some steam, I'll just go crazy!
Naruto: Hey, nothing a little training won't cure.
Ino: Not at my house! If my family ever finds out I don't have someone to spar with, I get roped into helping out at the shop.
Naruto: Whatever. They know you'd just skip the training if you were on your own.
Ino: W-W-Wait a minute, take that back! I train by myself all the time.
Ino: Jeez, I can't believe it. This is so unfair.
Sakura: It's not so bad. I'm training so hard these days, I can hardly keep my eyes open.
Naruto: Hey, Sakura!
Ino: Speaking of being lazy.
Naruto: Oh yeah? The last I checked, you're just sitting around a flower shop all day.
Gamatatsu: Hey there! Evening dude.
Naruto: What's going on around here? I called for the chief, not a tadpole.
Ino: Boy, you and our squad leader are two of a kind, you know that? You both just vanish at the drop of a hat. No getting around it, we've got a bumpy road ahead of us.
Naruto: Say what? You can't lump me into the same category as that screwball! She's certifiably insane.
Anko: (Holding a knife to Naruto.) Who're we talking about?
Shizune: (Thinking) Hand-picked? These were the only Genin available! She's too much.
Naruto: What the?! You're that psycho proctor from the Chunin Exam!
Anko: Hmm... Yeah, good times. Feels like it was only yesterday, doesn't it?
Naurto: Look out world, I'm going to hit the ground running today, so stand back!
Ino: You are so like sensei! Both of you just go off and disappear! Both of you seem to bring bad luck.
Naruto: What did you just say?! How rude of you! How dare you compare me with that aggressive teacher! What a great inconvenience...
(Anko appears and holds a kunai to Naruto's neck)
Naruto: I'm sorry.
Ino: She's definitely dangerous.
Shizune: About Mitarashi Anko, did something happen before?
Tsunade: Sort of.
Naruto: (Surprised) Hey, Shino! Don't scare me like that!
Tsunade: Listen up. I believe that this combination is the best one for the mission. Use your individual talents to the fullest, and complete the mission!
Shizune: All you did was call genin who were available. She's really...

Julianne Buescher does not reprise her role of Anko Mitarashi during this arc. Instead, Laura Bailey voices her here. This could be because Julianne Buescher wasn't available at the time.
Shizune is dressed up like Kankuro during the scene where she explains the mission using puppets.
This marks the first time a team has been formed with everyone from different squads: Naruto (Kakashi's squad), Shino (Kurenai's squad), and Ino (Asuma's squad), with Anko (leader/part of no known squad) as the leader.
This is the first time Anko leads a mission with the Leaf Village Genin.
Yoroi Akado and Misumi Tsurugi reappear unmasked for the first time since the preliminary rounds of the Chunin exam.
