Naruto: Now to find out who's behind this little prank. (Goes to inspect armor.) Huh? What? It's empty... But that can't be... Unless...(Starts to freak out) It's a...real...live...ghost!
(The ghost walks out of temple with glowing eyes)
Naruto: Okay, I've officially had enough of this!
Neji: I don't see him.
Naruto: We know he went in there.
Neji: Yes, but there's no human presence in that building. At least I don't detect the presence of a living human.
Naruto: Now what the heck does that mean? No, wait a second, I don't wanna know.
(They spot the Cursed Warrior in the air)
Tenten: The thing can fly?!
Shishima: Clad all in white, with a helmet and halberd in its hand, wearing the mask of an evil demon with eyes of fire... There can be no doubt about it, that's the Cursed Warrior!
Naruto: What about that other guy?
Tenten: Exactly. It's Koumei the adviser I'm suspicious of. He could have assassinated Lord Oowashi to gain power and then got angry when it didn't work.
Shishima: It's true, he's been complaining bitterly ever since Lord Sagi was chosen over him. I wouldn't put it past him to have manufactured the Cursed Warrior himself and then started these evil rumors.
Naruto: Yeah, exactly, now you're talking. This ghost isn't any ghost at all but this Lord Koumei guy.
Neji: (Sarcastic) Huh, so the mystery's solved just like that, eh?
Naruto: Thanks a lot. You know, you could have said something before about a ghost being involved.
Shishima: I didn't mention it? I thought I did.
Naruto: No, I think I would have remembered that. But it's just a rumor anyway, right? Has anyone ever seen it?
Shishima: Well, I've never seen it myself, but...
Naruto: Well, I thought so.
Shishima: Then again, my master, Lord Mosou, saw it with his own eyes. So close, he could feel its breath.
Naruto: Gah! That close, huh?!
Shizune: Did your friend tell you the details of your mission?
Naruto: Well... No, not exactly.
Tsunade: Their land's being haunted.
Naruto: (Gulps) By what?
Tsunade: They call it "The Cursed Warrior". A ghost wearing white armor that appears in the dead of night. Or so they say... Huh? (Looks behind her desk to find Naruto cowering)
Naruto: Oh... Uh, it's nothing. I just thought you said something about a ghost, that's all.
Tsunade: I did. What's wrong, ya scared?
Naruto: Course not. What kind of ninja would I be if I was scared of stuff like that?
(Tsunade and Shizune look down and see his legs shaking)
Tsunade: Idiot! Who said I refused his mission?
Naruto: I see. You weren't cheating him, you were waiting for Neji to come back from the mission he's on.
Tsunade: That's right, you little jerk.
Naruto: (Barges into Tsunade's office) I've seen some dirty tricks in my time, but this takes the cake!
Tsunade: Listen you, the least you could do is knock before you come barging in here.
Naruto: Yeah, yeah... Never mind that. What do you mean by taking every cent the poor guy has and then refusing to do the mission for him?
Naruto: You ought to be ashamed of yourself, Grandma Tsunade. You're a big fat cheat!
Tsunade: (Gets very angry) You want to try that again?! (Hits Naruto)
Naruto: Ow! Never mind, sorry.
(Shishima has eaten several bowls of ramen)
Teuchi Ichiraku: Thanks for coming, and as long as Naruto's treating, come back any time.
Naruto: Oh brother... (Looks at empty money frog) You weren't hungry at all, were you.
Shishima: I'm sorry, I kinda got carried away there, didn't I.
Naruto: How am I supposed to swallow my ramen with you staring at me like that? If you're hungry, go in there and order some!
Shishima: Who... Who said I'm hungry? (Stomach growls)
Teuchi Ichiraku: (Laughs) I guess someone must be talking about ya.
Naruto: No way, they're all out on missions. Anyway, isn't that when your ears are burning?
Kakashi: I wouldn't worry about him. He may not seem like it, but he's solid. You picked a good one to have on your side.
Shishima: I would do anything to help him; to bring back again, no matter what the cost.
Naruto: (Thinking) Yeah, that's just the way I felt about Sasuke. The way I still feel.
Naruto: (Hanging upside-down from Third Hokage's nose on the mountain) Hey, look at me! I'm a booger!
Neji: There's no human aura here, at least not a living one.
Naruto: Why'd you have to say it like that?
Neji: There's no way that ghosts can really exist.
Man from Bird Country: I'm sorry, it's said that I'm a skinny glutton.
Naruto: Huh, huh? I didn't hear anything about a ghost...
Shizune: Are you afraid?
Naruto: I'm not scared! Can there be a ninja that's scared of something like that?
Naruto: You call people who do that, ogres, you know? You old hag of an ogre!
Tsunade: I dare you to say that one more time.
(Tsunade hits Naruto)
Naruto: That hurt!
Man from Bird Country: If that is the case, then...
(Man pulls out a knife)
Man from Bird Country: I will punish myself!
(Man gets ready to cut himself and Shizune and Tsunade freak)
Tsunade: Don't be rash!
(Man cuts near his skin and a money bag drops out, Tsunade and Shizune looked surprised and he empties out the coins)
