Naruto: Well count me out, old man. I don't have time to help you find a girlfriend. I've got to get busy with my training.
Asuma: Not that I'm unhappy to see you, but what are you doing here?
Kakashi: Well, you know. I asked you to take care of those two earlier, but I guess I got a little concerned.
Jiraiya: There is one guy I wouldn't mind having along for the ride. I've stumbled across a very interesting little egg.
Homura: No one knows where she is?
Jiraiya: I'm sure I can dig her up.
Jiraiya: Tsunade has got the brains for it, more than a loafer like me does.
Jiraiya: If you're so set on a Sannin, there is another. You're forgetting Tsunade.
Homura: I think you'll be interested in what our plans are. This village needs the Fifth Hokage immediately.
Koharn: And yesterday at an emergency meeting with the lord of the Land of Fire, it was decided. We chose you, Jiraiya.
Jiraiya: Oh, I don't know. It's not really up my alley.
Naruto: Breakfast, breakfast! Ready or not, ramen, here I come!
Orochimaru: If I'd only gotten a hold of Itachi Uchiha from the beginning, we wouldn't be in this mess. But it's too late now, that dream has died. Itachi is stronger than I am. That is why I pulled myself out of that organization.
Kabuto: You didn't think it would be easy, did you? Look who you were playing with, one of the most renowned ninja of the five great shinobi nations.
Konohamaru: Right now I just want to do all I can to help out, so you'll have to do enough training for both of us. Okay, Naruto? Because if you slack off, I'll make it to Hokage before you.
Naruto: Ha! You puny runt, the next Hokage is standing right in front of you. Besides, you still have to make it through the academy first.
(Kakashi sees Kurenai and Asuma walking together)
Kakashi: Well, you two seem to be getting along.
(Kurenai blushes and looks away)
Kurenai: Hmph, idiot.
Itachi: Asuma, don't make me kill you.
Asuma: I find that hilarious coming from the guy who murdered his own people!
Kisame: My big blade Samehada does not slice...IT SHAVES!
Kisame: This one is quite annoying. Shall I kill him?
Itachi: Very well. But don't overdo it, your moves stand out too much
It is revealed that Orochimaru killed the real Fourth Kazekage. Ironically, now both Konoha and Suna need to find a Fifth Kage.

The guard ninja Itachi puts to sleep at the start of this episode is the same guy Kabuto puts to sleep at the end of Episode 67, before he uses his Temple of Nirvana technique.
Jiraiya is offered the role of Hokage but he turns it down and suggests Tsunade's name instead.
According to Kurenai, Kisame is a renegade ninja wanted by the Water Country for assassinating a feudal lord, sabotoge, and various crimes.
Kisame's ring says "south"
Itachi's ring says "Scarlet".
Kisame uses the Suiton: Suikoudan no Jutsu (Water Type: Water Shark Blast Technique) an attack similar to the Water Dragon Blast used by Momochi Zabuza
Kisame's appearance of a sharkman resembles a fish man from One Piece.
