  • QUOTES (25)

    • Anko: These are consent forms. Those taking the exam must sign these.
      Naruto: Why?
      Anko: Because from here on, people will die.

      ~Japanese version

    • Sasuke: You stupid fool, you don't know what you're doing!

    • (Yelling from the forest occurs)
      Anko: (Chuckles) Sounds like the fun has begun.

    • Anko: All right, heads up, you maggots! The second part of the test has begun.

    • Kiba: Well, it looks like the leeches found them. They sense body temperature and perspiration, and then in a group they swoop down on their prey. If they suck your blood for five's all over. These predators are smart. We've taken advantage of their instincts to trap our enemies.

    • Kiba: Yahoo...we rock at survival. There's no way we could lose! Hinata? You'd better be strong for this.
      Hinata: Right.

    • Choji: I'm glad they didn't turn on us. Why are they like that to each other?
      Shikamaru: Who cares?...Like I have the time to worry about that stuff.

    • Ino: Well, well, well. If it isn't the little future failure. What's up, billboard brow? I thought you would've wash out of the program by now. Your big forehead alone should have gotten you tossed.
      Sakura: So sad you're jealous that I'm spending five days with Sasuke...and it's clearly turning you into someone very petty and ugly. And you were already ugly. (laughs)

    • Anko: The test consists of...anything-goes battle to get your hands on these scrolls.
      Sasuke: Both of them?
      Anko: Yes, you'll be fighting to get both a Heaven scroll and an Earth scroll. Squads must bring both a Heaven and Earth scroll to the tower.

    • Anko: Seems like everyone here today is quick tempered. There must be something in the air...Hm? This is gonna be fun.
      Naruto: Quick tempered?! Sheesh. You're the one who threw the kunai at me!

    • Anko: The first thing you need to know is that this test will tax every one of your survival skills.
      Shikamaru: Survival...what a drag.

    • Naruto: I need to pee.
      Sakura: You idiot! What are you trying to do in front of a lady?! Go behind the grass!

      ~Japanese Version

    • Rock Lee: As the days are getting longer, the nights are getting shorter, we will have less time to sleep, and less time to recover. It is a challange indeed!

    • Naruto: That guy's gonna pay for this! I mean sneaking up on a guy when he''s just not right!

    • (Sasuke attacks Naruto)
      Sakura: Sasuke! What are you doing?
      Sasuke: Take a good look at him (Sasuke looks at Naruto) Talk! What have you done with Naruto?
      Naruto: What, I am Naruto!
      Sasuke: Then where is the cut on your cheek? I guess you didn't know that Naruto got a cut on his face before this test. Also, your shuriken holster is on your left leg, not your right, but Naruto is right handed! Your transformation jutsu is worse than Naruto's.

    • Naruto: Excuse me, I gotta, you know.
      (Naruto unzips his pants and Sakura hits Naruto over the head)
      Sakura: Yeah right! Not in front of me you don't! What is this, a kennel? Go find a bush!

    • Ino: (To Choji) More kunai, less candy!

    • Rock Lee: Sensei, I will make you proud! Soon everyone will know the name, "Rock Lee"!

    • (Right before the Forest of Death exam)
      Anko: I have one more word of advice...JUST DON'T DIE!

    • Shikamaru: So um, let's say in the exam, can we quit?
      Anko: Of course not! In a middle of a battle you can't say "Sorry, I quit"...Well, I guess you can, but it will only get you killed!

    • (After Naruto sees Orochimaru waving his tongue around)
      Naruto: Hey, I wonder if I could do that with my tongue?
      (Naruto trys to touch his nose with his tongue)

    • Ino: Five days out there?!
      Choji: What are we supposed to do for food?!
      Anko: Just look around. There's enough food to feed everyone.

    • Naruto: (Peeing off screen) Wow, that was a lot! I wrote my whole name!

    • Naruto: What if the scroll just happens to flop open and we read it?
      Anko:(Chuckles) Let me put it this way, young man; you...don'!

    • Anko: ...That's why they call it the Forest of Death!
      Naruto: (Sarcastically while shaking butt) They call it the Forest of Deeathh! They call it the Forest of Deeathh!
      (Anko notices she's getting made fun of)
      Anko: Tough guys like you leave their blood all over this place.

      3. Naruto holds his kunai with his right hand.
