    • Shikamaru: It's troublesome, but when I do tings, I do them properly. This time, I'll make sure there won't be any victims.
      Temari: Let's see if you can do it without crying this time.
      Shikamaru: You sure remember things that are way in the past. This is what's difficult about girls.
      Ino: (To herself) I-I kinda feel like I don't belong here...

      Kiba: (Akamaru barks) This is how dogs are. They aren't satisfied until a favor has been returned. Especially Akamaru.

    • Temari: So you are the Konoha reinforcements.

    • Original Episode Title: The Sealed Sand Water Tiger's Counterattack

    • Near the end of the episode, Temari and Kankuro use the same methods of defeating their foes. That is, the Summoning Jutsu as well as the Puppet Coffin move. This time however, it's with the aid of Shikamaru and Kiba and Chouji respectively. Gaara, this time, uses a sand spear to piece the chest of his combatant.
