In the English dub, the Wandering Ninja refers to Gaara's technique as Sand Funeral, when it was previously referred to as Sand Burial.
When Kakashi summons Pakkun, he performs no hand signs and doesn't draw any blood.
Koumei: Mousou... It's clear that his fiendish plan was first to dispose of me and then gain control of the Land of Birds by disposing of Lord Sagi.
Naruto: And all the time playing the good guy. I can't wait to get my hand on him.
Sagi: No, Naruto. You've done well. However, from this point on, I act alone.
Naruto, Neji, Tenten, & Koumei: Huh?
Naruto: But, what do you mean?
Sagi: Understand that I must settle this myself. Until I've done this, my heart is as broken as this watch! We are both stopped forever in the past.
(Koumei winces from pain and grabs his chest)
Naruto: (Steadies Koumei) What's wrong? Are you okay?
Koumei: I'm all right, just a bit weak. You see, Mousou was quite persistent in squeezing a confession out of me. (Shows several scars)
Naruto: Look at you. Mister, you've been beat up pretty good.
Neji: When we went in pursuit of the Cursed Warrior, a second shinobi started following us.
Tenten: Wonderful! So I'm the only one who didn't know, and I was actually worried.
Naruto: You're probably all wondering what I'm doing in this...(Tenten slaps him) Ow! Tenten, what the heck was that for?!
Tenten: Let's just say I don't like being kept in the dark.
Neji: All right, don't you think this is far enough?
Naruto: (Dressed as the Cursed Warrior) Yeah, you're probably right. We should be in the clear. (Takes off mask)
Tenten: N-No way! Naruto?!
Neji: I thought as much.
Pakkun: This guy's tougher than he seemed at first bite.
(Hokusin notices something funny about the way Kakashi, Neji, and Tenten are acting)
Hokushin: Wait a minute... (Throws some shuriken at them and they turn back into monkeys) Of course, a substitution. Think you're clever, eh, playing me for a fool!
Hokushin: Do you really believe they're headed back to their village, Nagare?
Nagare: Could be.
Hokushin: The one in the mask who joined them later worries me.
Nagare: If you want me to follow them, I will.
Hokushin: No, leave that to me. Go on and report back.
Tenten: (Speaking to Neji and referring to Naruto being dressed up as the ghost) How long have you known that?!
Neji: Well, we know one thing, he's no more of a ghost than what I am.
Pakkun: Hey, you in there! Hide and seek is over. You can come out.
Wandering Ninja: Ha, ha, ha... Even I can't fool a dog's nose. Very clever.
Kakashi: Sacrifice is an unavoidable part of the shinobi way.
Koumei: That Mousou! He must of thought after doing away with me, he could kill Sagi-sama and ascend the throne of the Bird country!
Naruto: Acting like he's the good guy! I ought to beat him up!

The title of the episode refers to the fact that Naruto was acting as the Noroimusha in Sagi's place so Mousou wouldn't suspect anything. The title is very misleading.
