  • Quotes

    • Shikamaru: (Thinking) These guys are persistent, but I'm starting to get the picture here. Still, this isn't going to be a cakewalk.

    • Sakon: What are you in the mood for, brother?
      Ukon: Ripping 'em apart.

    • (The three demons summoned by Tayuya charge at Shikamaru)
      Shikamaru: (Thinking) So she controls them with that flute (Dodges another attack) Darn it! She keeps getting further away. What do I do? What do I do?! (The demons charge him again) Oh man, this is not good!

    • Kimimaro: There sure is a lot of garbage scattered around here, but trash is just trash after all. It simply needs to be cleaned up.
      Naruto: Shut your mouth!
      Kimimaro: Come then.
      Naruto: I'm gonna crush you!

    • Orochimaru: Nothing will go wrong now that we've sent him after them. Kimimaro, he'll clean up anything that would be a nuisance to me, you can be sure of that.

    • Kiba: (Thinking after being bit by Akamaru) I must be a lousy master, for you to bite me like that.

    • Ukon: Let's wrap this up! We're going to phase two!
      Sakon: Oh, all right. You're always so impatient, brother.

    • Kiba: Where'd the other one go?
      Ukon: Boo!

    • Shikamaru: So this is her melody of death.

    • Ukon: What are you...? Are you insane?!
      Kiba: Time for you to die.

    • Kiba: Let's die together.

      ~Japanese version

    • Sakon: Damn it! He did it again! My eyes, it burns! This is no ordinary piss, it's a strong acid!

      ~Japanese version

    • Kiba: For you to have bit me, I must be a horrible owner.
